5 out of 5 eggslove it

Pros: handles anything i throw at it

Cons: very long card

Other Thoughts: had this for about 2 years now and it still handles most any games at max settings. it's beginning to show a little age on newer games coming out though. card is long in size but thats normal these days

1 out of 5 eggsAvoid Evga

Pros: I basically owned the 280 gtx, but since evga discontinued it, and the SSC is just an over clocked 280 gtx minus a back plate, I want to give an informed opinion.

The good: it's an nvidia card, you get physx hardware acceleration and it is a fast card. Pretty much all of the 280-295 cards are very fast for gaming. A friend put my system together this time, so they chose evga for the lifetime warranty and that you can overclock the card and basically the company gives you the software to do this. Sounds great right? well...

Cons: The con is two things: first off, REGISTER your product. Since my system was put together that great lifetime warranty that they promised went right into the trash can since I recieved my system 5 days after the 30 day registration time.. boo me.

Also my card fans stopped working two months after purchase and overheated the card which has caused me to have to RMA it. This is why I say go with someone else.
I've sent other cards in before to other companies (I won't name them unless people ask.) But basically I have to send the card in to evga, wait, and then get my replacement. Other places, you get your replacement and send yours back in. So if you want to have a huge down time with your system, EVGA is just right for you. If you want really good RMA service then go with one of the other companies that offer lifetime warranties, since all these cards are the same with the exception of some of evga's custom boards, which honestly don't make a drastic difference.

Other Thoughts: Recap: Strict 30 day registration: otherwise NO LIFETIME WARRANTY.

RMA process is slow, for the price and hardware, other companies sell the same cards with better policies and trustme, it really is a big thing. you've been warned.

Manufacturer Response:

Hi,

Please contact us directly at 888-880-3842, also, EVGA does have an advanced RMA service. Please see here: www.evga.com/ear

Thanks,
Jacob

5 out of 5 eggsEVGA GeForce GTX 285 SSC

Pros: I bought this card to get away from SLI, which doesn't work for all games incuding Crysis, which I play alot. This card deffinatly lives up to it's name. I replaced 2 8800GT's with this card and I am glad that I did, as this card has equal performance to both of those cards, and my SLI issues are gone to. Even though it is overclocked out of the box, there still is a little room to overclock further, though I don't see a reason to, as this card can play any game with the defult settings. My computer runs an E8600 Wolfdale 45nm Core2 at 4.275GHz with an 1800 FSB. This card is a perfect asset to my rig. Also when this card clocks down when not busy it runs at a cool 45*C with a defult fan speed of 25%......Nice

Cons: HEAT!!
I have to manually turn the fan speed up to 65% on a few of my games as this card can get to 75*C+ using the defult fan driver.

Other Thoughts: The cooler works great, it's just the temps move up a lot faster then the fan speed does. Over all, I am very happy with the performance of this card, kudos to nVidia and EVGA.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This card is amazing. I'm currently running it on win7beta and it performs flawlessly. I, when I can my kid away from the gaming PC, have run it in WoW & Call of Duty; no problems or lockups with either on 7beta.

Cons: size

Other Thoughts: This is a full width card--very large. make sure your case is large enough.

5 out of 5 eggsTri-Sli Sweetness!

Pros: 3 of these in tri-sli crush crysis / crysis wars.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: I watercooled mine with koolance gear. Was easily able to achieve clocks of 778 gpu, 1728 shader, 1440 mem at 44c,44c,44c full load! Idle is about 32c. WAY above F.T.W specs! No need to go higher. Usually run 725,1656,1404 for 24/7 use in gaming etc.

Already long in the tooth but, these cards still give 295's a run for thier money.

Cons: Runs a bit on the hot side. Length-It barely fit in my midtower case. It is about 1inch from my hard drives.

Other Thoughts: Extremely pleased with this purchase.

Cons: price - but hey you get what you pay for.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This thing rock's. Runs CoD WaW maxed out settings (1920x1080) without any problems. Stays at idle temp when running BF2... The EVGA software is nice, can change clocks/fan speed from desktop.

Cons: It was not cheaper and does not cook breakfast...

5 out of 5 eggsLove EVGA

Pros: This thing chews up and spits out any game out there. First thing I did when I got this in the mail is rip out my 4870, install this, and reinstall vista 64bit. After I loading up the drivers I installed the Call of Duty World at War. Maxed out the graphics at 1920x1200 and didn't see any studdering. A nice steady framrate. With the 4870 I would have lots of crashes and it felt like the fps would drop and lag a lot. Overclocked this to 736/1660/1360 and I haven't stopped there. Finally I have hardware with decent drivers.

Cons: Didn't score as high in 3dmark as I did with 2 4870s. Duh. But I can honestly say games play better on one GTX 285.

Other Thoughts: Would love to go SLI with this thing but I'm still on my ASUS M3A79T Deluxe with Phenom 9950. Thinking about the new EVGA Classified board, two of these Video cards, and a I7 920/950. Now that would be a nice system.
