5 out of 5 eggsBEST FOR THE MONEY

Pros: EXCELLENT VIDEO CARD I GET AVERAGE OF 116 FPS AND MAXS OUT AT 210 FPS THATS WITH EVERY THING ON HIGH AND IN SOME GAMES ULTRA SETTINGS ON ONE CARD NO SLI.I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT ATI BUT AFTER THIS VIDEO CARD I WOULD NEVER BUY A ATI EVER.
"THIS IS WITH IT STOCK,NEVER OC"

Cons: I FOUND OUT THAT POWER SUPPLY WITH THIS CARD MAKES BIG DIFFERENCE,I UPGRADED MY POWERSUPPLY TO A OCZ EXTREME POWER SUPPLY WITH 4-12V RAILS AND MADE BIG DIFFERENCE VERUS ANTEC WITH 2-12V RAILS PERSONALLY FOR THIS CARD TO TAKE FULL ADVANTAGE I WOULD MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A POWER SUPPLY WITH 4-12V RAILS.

Other Thoughts: RUNNING THIS IN PC WITH: ANTEC 900 PC CASE,AMD PHENOM X3 8750 BLACK EDITION OC TO 3.0GHZ,ASUS M3A78PRO MB,2-2GB OCZ DDR2 1066 PERFORMANCE MEMORY CARDS,MS WIN VISTA BUISNESS 32BIT OS,OCZ EXTREME POWER SUPPLY,THERMALTAKE V1CPU F+H,THERMALTAKE A1926 120MM FANS,ANTEC 200MM FAN,1-300GB WD VELOCI RAPTOR SATA2

Cons: none

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Awesome card, easy overclock with evga precision.

Cons: Card tends to overheat with original drivers but get up to date drivers and it will take care of that problem

Other Thoughts: Bought two cards, one of them was defective but the egg took care of it and hooked me up with the shipping.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: Good quality, live up to its potential. Came with a DVI to HDMI converter with was really helpful. The bonus video game offer is also nice.

Cons: Card is huge, luckily I had no problems installing it. Pricey but worth the money.

5 out of 5 eggsAMAZING!!

Pros: Amazing card. Has run every single game I have played on highest settings. The performance is great. Crysis looks beautiful. Farcry 2, which came with it, has extraordinary graphics. I overclocked it with no problem.

Cons: Farcry 2 sucks.

Other Thoughts: AMAZING CARD

5 out of 5 eggsLoved Mirror's Edge on this thing

Pros: This thing burns up everything I throw at it. Mirror's Edge, Fallout 3, WoW... not much more yet but it's only been a week lol. It's not the springiest chicken in the hen house but the price is nice, and the reviews it gets really don't put it far behind the x285s as far as FPS in many games.

Cons: The drivers it came with while nice for Mirror's Edge were pretty rough on Fallout 3's water transparancy somehow. I crashed to desktop many many times. I updated to the new 182 beta drivers though and it is much improved. Well, that and upgraded to 3.5 .net Framework.

Other Thoughts: Size is obviously always an issue these days, but this thing was a pretty tight squeeze to get into my Rosewill mid tower.

5 out of 5 eggsA Great Step Up from 8800GTX

Pros: Better performance than the 8800GTX's they replace - at 2/3'rds the cost -- wow, can't beat that.

My experience with EVGA products and reliability has been very, very good.

Cons: My 8800GTX's weren't dead yet.

260's are the best I can put in my machine now, as stepping up to the 280+ would require PSU with 8-pin connectors -

Other Thoughts: I've been using a pair of 8800GTX in SLI, added Blu Ray a month ago.. found they were not 100% up to the task. Replaced with 260 Core 216 Superclocked... Blu Ray performance is where it should be.

I'm running in a Dell XPS-720H2C, SLI, nvidia 690i, Vista 64bit, 4GB ram. 3DMark06 runs close to 17,000. I'm pretty darn happy with that.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat deal

Pros: This is my 2nd for sli (Like I really need it right now, I havent run across a game I couldnt use it on) 3-5 degrees cooler than first 260, curcuit board isnt covered so heat dissapates faster.

Cons: nothing

Other Thoughts: when I was trying to regester it EVGA had to fix becasue the serial number was used, EVGA explained that with international companies more than one manufacturing plant, this can happen(accidently send out duplicate serial numbers), they fixed it within 2nd email after the tech figured out what happened, EVGA is great

5 out of 5 eggsit does fit!

Pros: Fast

Cons: long, but fits in a standard case

Other Thoughts: I have a Thermaltake Tsunami dream case. I had to move the HD to the lowest position, but the card fits now...even with 1mm of space at the end.

5 out of 5 eggsNice GPU

Pros: Can run almost all my games at max. Everything runs snappy. Came with a coupon for a free game download.

Cons: Not sure if the drivers are a little buggy. Had some issues with a couple of newer games locking up or freezing (not sure if it was GPU or not).

Other Thoughts: Intel Core 2 Duo 3.0 E8400 (No need to OC yet)
Asus Rampage Extreme
OCZ Flex EX 4GB DDR3 1600
EVGA GTX 260
Zalman Z-Machine GT1000B
