5 out of 5 eggswow and more wow

Pros: ok i now have 3 of them. 90 fps on codwaw temp never get above 45c. i have one computer set up with sli. not real happy with sli right now but might be some of my fault. cpu might not be good enough for it. for the price and what you are getting nothing out there comes close.

Cons: just one sli not what i was hoping, but might be on my end.

Other Thoughts: i just wish i had a better cpu. using a amd 7750BE and that seems to be the problem for sli. but more homework needs to be done for that. using an asus m4n72-e i get 60 to 90 fps in sli and single i get 90 plus. might be mobo or cpu who know. i did get the cpu OCed 3.1 and a same change in the fps so might need to get a new cpu.

5 out of 5 eggsMr

Pros: Unbelievable power for the price - definitely the best price to performance ratio currently (July 09). Incredible customer support 24/7 and based in the great USA. Fantastic build quality. As long as you register your product within 30 days, you get an awesome warranty. You overclock the living s^%t out of this card. I easily reached 725 core memory. The "Precision" tool that EVGA rocks. You don't use the SLI bridge with the new NVIDIA drivers or it will crash your system.

Cons: The card runs HOT and is really LONG. I think it is about 12 1/2 inches. Mercifully, the PCIe 6 pin connectors are on the top like the reference design. Also, you really need a solid powerful for this card.

Other Thoughts: I bought one of these in Feb 09. Never had a problem and it runs like a dream. I decided to build an SLI test system. I am using an EVGA 750i board and I purchased another 260 GTX for $150 after rebate from NewEgg. I needed a better PSU, so I went with an Antec EarthWatts 750 which has also performed amazingly well. You do NOT need a 1000W PSU for SLI. An 80+ quality PSU from Antec, Cooler Master, Corsair, Seasonic, etc., should be just fine. Check the amperage on the specs before you buy. You need a solid 40A on each 12V rail.

5 out of 5 eggsNice card

Pros: This is a powerful card. So far it has run both Company of Heroes and Crysis with a higher fps than my old Asus 4850. It's also a very beautiful card.

Cons: The pictures shown are slightly different than what arrived at my door. Nothing big though. Also it was supposed to come with a case sticker and mine did not. It's not really a big deal but I would be much more happy if I had the sticker.

Other Thoughts: I was expecting a little more out of this card but I'm still very impressed. I plan on getting another to SLI.

Pros: Runs great, beautiful graphics

Cons: tricky installation with my case, but it's in now and I don't plan on taking it out all that often.

Other Thoughts: Runs World of Warcraft on Ultra Settings average 180 fps in raids, Bioshock runs max settings- no issues

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: -Very powerful graphics card.
-I can play all of my games on max resolution and settings.
-There is a nice program that comes in the package that tells you how warm your GPU is, and also lets you manually control the internal fan.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This graphics card compliments my i7 build perfectly, and I am very happy with my purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Surprisingly quiet, and runs great.

Cons: HUGE. Barely fit into my large ATX case, but I assume they build these things to barely fit so it's not a huge deal. Had to run some power/SATA cables under it.

Other Thoughts: Love this card, it runs games in ultra-high mode with no problem.

4 out of 5 eggsLOUD!!!

Pros: Runs Fallout 3 and Oblivion on Ultra High settings fine. Same with CoD WaW, it runs fine. The only lag I've had was when I turned the settings above ultra high... which was really not necessary. So I'm getting a 750i soon, once I get the Crosshair 1kw PSU to go with it I'm picking up a 2nd one of these.

Fits in a mid-tower case. Make sure that you have clearence over IDE Headers, ETC when installing this. If the ATX Power Connecter on my mobo was 1cm lower this wouldn't have worked.

Cons: THE FAN SCREAMS!!!!! Loudest thing in meh case! Might get water cooling soon!

Came without the plastic cover on the back. Not bad enough to return or deduct an egg but still not good.

Raised my CPU Temps by 7-10ºc when idle and 5-8ºc under load. The cause is that it takes up all the room between the drive bays and the back of the case in my mid-tower XION. So watch out if your CPU is overclocked much.

Somewhat high temps... once you turn on the fan they go down by like 10c
