5 out of 5 eggsSweet!

Pros: Highest stock clocks out of any GTX 285 out there. Excellent EVGA support. Runs excellent and quiet as well.

Cons: Pricey, but if you're buying a "For The Win" card, you really don't care about cost quite as much as others. I do wish EVGA would put a different sticker on the HSF or something to make the card look a little different from their other offerings of the GTX 285, but that's hardly a "con".

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Relatively quiet, very high performance, single GPU.

Cons: Not as fast as the dual GPU solutions, expensive.

Other Thoughts: This is the fastest single GPU card on the market as of this writing. Higher performance models use SLI or Crossfire on the card, and come with their associated problems and difficulties.

While the performance increase over similar cards with lower clock speeds is modest, this unit offers performance without the tweaking hassle - and still lets you tweak to your heart's content.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best GPU Money can buy! Hands Down!

Coming Soon!

Pros: Runs Very cool, 8800GTS 512 G92 runs 48c idle, these run 36c, 12c cooler, 10 times better, running 2 & Max Crysis with All settings on Very High, 1920x1200, AA=16Q, getting 40-45 Avg. FPS, This card is 1-1/2 inches longer the 8800/9800 cards, I had to move my HDD's around to get these in, only thing that was in the way was SATA cables * power connectors, Other then that the fit fairly snug, just right, I f you only have 1 drive, run it in the bottom, I have 3 HDD's, 2 in the bottom, 1 in the 4th up, 2-way sli, will need to go up 6 from the bottom for 3-way.. FYI... Power connectors are on the side now perfect ( 2 6-pin ea.) Also 2 of these will take a GTX295 no problem, 3 of these will take 2 GTX295's no problem, So 3 is the ultimate solution..

Cons: I have 2, Not 3, due to X-fi card, I might just get another.. & ditch the X-fi, Anyone want to buy an x-fi LOL... Really there are none, this card rules

Other Thoughts: My Specs: Q6600 @ 3.6GHZ a must, EVGA 780i A1, Corsair XMS3 800MHZ DDR2/4-4-4-12/5-5-5-18, I am also running a 9800GT SC @ 650MHZ for a 2nd display & phisX, ULTRA X3 1000watt PSU, Antec 900,

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic EVGA Card

Pros: 1) A solid performer; if you're looking for the fastest single GPU solution currently available, this is your solution. I personally avoid dual gpu/sli configurations, due to their unreliable antialiasing support, frustrating software compatibility constraints, and miscellaneous thermal issues. EVGA's gtx 285 "for the win" edition is impressively fast and easy to install. I was able to successfully overclock my card an additional 5% over factory OC settings, which represents a substantial total OC level when compared to a standard gtx 285.

2) EVGA is one of the best graphics card manufacturers, offering a lifetime warranty, advanced RMA support, and a 90 day "step-up" program for those who wish to upgrade their card within the supplied time window.

3) This product shipped with free gaming software.

Cons: 1) Size: make certain your case has enough space to accomodate the imposing length of this card.

2) Power Consumption: even though the card intelligently "down-clocks" itself when not running intensive applications, this card still places a non-trivial load on your power supply. Ensure your rig can handle the increased energy comsumption.

Other Thoughts: I have strong feelings about factory OC cards. Many claim that it's more cost effective for a consumer to buy the stock-standard gpu, in this case a reference gtx 285, as you avoid paying a premium for a "modest" factory enhancement. I disagree with these folks for two reasons. 1) OC your video card is one of the most simple and straight forward ways of increasing gaming performance. EVGA guarantees their OC cards (e.g. SSC or "for the win" editions) with a warranty which means you are covered if you have any issues at these enhanced speeds. 2) EVGA hand picks the best cards during factory QA tests to populate their OC product lines, which means your SSC or "for the win" edition performed well enough during QA testing to be guaranteed to perform at a higher level. By purchasing one of these factory OC cards, you reduce your risk of receiving a defective or problematic card. You get what you pay for here.

1 out of 5 eggsFactory OC defective

Pros: Works great...for five minutes.

Cons: Card experiences traditional "over OCed" issues after only 5 mins of gameplay. Colors get all messed up, screen repeatedly locks (sound and everything else still plays), and then BSOD. So much for factory OCing.

Other Thoughts: RMAing for a new one. Hopefully the next one works.

5 out of 5 eggsHUGE, but FAST!

Pros: Absolutely the fastest single GFX card you can buy under $500. The heatsink and fan combination provide a massive amount of cooling, just make sure your PC case has enough airflow to feed the gfx card's fan.

Cons: This card is ENORMOUS. The same powerful heatsink/fan system is a full 2.25 inches longer than the 8800 GTS I replaced it with. It is very important that if you are going to be upgrading to the new gfx cards that you prepare your PC case ahead of time. I had to move not only the hard-drives in my case, but also the SATA wires on the motherboard (the gfx card was blocking the upper SATA ports). Also, this graphics card requires 2 6-pin PCI-E power cables to power it. While the box does include two 4-pin to 6-pin adaptors, you still need the available connections available to make them.

Other Thoughts: In summary:
Amazingly fast card.
Requires 2.25 inches more clearance compared to older series cards.
Requires 2 6-pin PCI-E power cable connections.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the money

Pros: comes with EVGA overclocking tool.. I just used to turn fan to 100% about twice as loud as my old 8800 GTS fan at 100%, but getting use to it. The hot air gets blow out the back fin of the card! Thankfully not back into the case like the 8800 GTS did. BIG improvment there alone. Fits in Antec 900 mid tower case w/o much trouble just had to remove a nonused fan bracket on the back of the harddrive cage...easy enough. Running with a 550 watt thermaltake toughpower.

Cons: I can not max this thing out yet with a e8400.. more of a pro I guess.

Other Thoughts: EVGA users for many years...This card is an investment to the future, as the next card I hope to buy will be DX11 capable..unless this one magically supports it later on..not sure there

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome!

Pros: Great performance. The For The Win version gets the better section of the wafer, so it gets better OC performance on top of the already high OC it has. EVGA's For The Win version is the highest stocked clocked 285 out. It is definitely worth it if you want a performance boost over the vanilla, OC addict, benchmark addict or just want the best 285 out there.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I would have this card's babies >.<
