4 out of 5 eggsFast enough for awhile

Pros: Upgraded to this from an 8800GTX. Solid upgrade, but wasn't as epic as going from an X1900XT to the 8800GTX. Runs Crysis Warhead well with a mix of Medium/High/Very High @ 1920x1200. Runs pretty much every other game maxed, including CoH, CoD 5, Fallout3, L4D, UT3, FEAR 2, GTA 4 (only with a quad core cpu). Accelerates Adobe CS4 Apps. Lifetime warranty.

Cons: Noisy when fan spins up all the way, like most high-end cards with stock coolers. Not as wow-inducing as the 8800GTX was when it came out. Might be better off buying a 4890 @ 900/4000 now.

Other Thoughts: I'm running a Q9550 @ 3.6, Gigabye P45, 4gb OCZ SLI-ready, Velociraptor, Thermaltake ToughPower 750w, Antec P182, Dell 2407WFP.

I got it for only $350 way back in August via Live Cashback @ TD.

5 out of 5 eggsKiller Card--A Must Buy!!

Pros: Faster than the GTX 260 Core 216 It replaced.
Purchase price of $269.00 Brand New
Not a game I can;t max out--@ 1920X1080
Crysis,FC2,COD 4, GTA 4 ..Nothing
Crysis VERY HIGH setting with no AA runs flawless!!
GTA 4 all very high textures with 26 View distance

Cons: Very Hot!! Runs @ 85 c when @ full load--Fan spins @ 100% on Auto
MY GTX 260 Core 216 55nm wads much quieter and cooler running.

Other Thoughts: For the price I paid there is no better deal!!! I found it for $269.99 at a local retailer!! Sorry EGG --I still buy from you most of the time.

1 out of 5 eggsGood Card Bad Trade up

Pros: Great performance on this card. The GTX 280 owns all of the console Ports (2560x1600 at various levels of AA).

Cons: High power requirements, my older BFG 550 watt PSU didn't cut it, I had to get a PC Power & Cooling 650watt (the stated minimum 12volt Rail Amperage is no joke). Huge card (got full server case, but still..) covered up 2 SATA connectors.

Other Thoughts: The trade up with BFG is a joke. If you are a hardware enthusiast like me, you are on the edge of your seat everytime you hear a diesel engine (expecting another package via UPS from newegg). This is where NewEgg shines, because they deliver so quickly (next day!) I put in for a Trade up on March 13th from BFG's site. As of today, April 8th, they are still checking into inventory for the card. In the meantime, bfgstore shows the card in stock shipping the same day for the past month (gtx 285). I've used EVGA in the past for their step-up, and from when I initiated the step-up to when I had my card in hand was little under 2 weeks. BFG has a good reputation for quality tech support, I would be wrong to deny that. However if you are planning on trading up your card in 100 days, look elsewhere ( towards EVGA ).

The best part was when I called and complained about how long it was taking, they said, "oh you can cancel your order if you want"... yea thanks, I didn't realize that...

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome card

Pros: Greatly increased my FPS in game. Currently playing Darkfall online. I mainly notice the difference when in large siege battles. A lot of ppl in vent are complaining they can't move etc, and I'm runnin around wacking on ppl with no problem.

Very easy installation, took me about 5 mins to pop it in and install the software.

Cons: Size...better make sure you can fit it into your machine.

4 out of 5 eggsSuper Fast but Super Hot - SLI Review in Win 7 & XP

Pros: Price, price, price... Relatively cheap compared to other similar cards in the market (lookout for 10% discount usually during weekends). Solid build & performance during heavy gaming in SLI with maxed out settings. Smooth frames in SLI (avg. 46fps in fraps) and no artifacts after 4 hrs of crysis at 16x10.5 with 8x AA (the hardest test you can run I.M.O.)
Maxed out settings in COD4&5 (need to specify dual cards in options), GRID, Frontlines, FC2, Assassins C., and GRAW2.
Phys-X build in!!!

Cons: Very Hot! My PC started to blow like a steam engine during Crysis (max settings). These things suck a lot of air but also blow it all out in no time, my point - have a dedicated fan blow directly at them.
Not the newer 285 model with 55nm chip. Size - Huge, you need to make sure you have room for two. Power Hungry, currently being fed with a dedicated TT 650W VGA PSU (~$110 extra).
These cards love to go to sleep in Win7. I'm running a Gateway 24" lcd and it doesn't respond at times. Could very well be Win7 and not the cards.

Other Thoughts: Great setup for $600 if that's your cup of tea, or even better with a dedicated VGA PSU for +$100. I love to game so my objective was to stick with my old rig while overhauling the GPU, hence invest all funds in a dedicated graphics.
Rig specs:
e6700 oc 2.9ghz (enough for me)
evga 680i
dominator 2x2 800mhz with fan
TT Big Typhon
TT 850 modular PSU
TT 650 VGA PSU
2 x 36gb raptors in stripe for OS and apps
2 x 72gb raptors in stripe for games
2 x these babys in SLI
X-FI Fatality
1tb wg for storage
dvd + floppy
TT Armor Aluminum case (weighs a ton now)
2 x TT bay cages with 120mm fans
+ 120mm fan rear, + 90mm + 90mm top rear and top of case

p.s. for the first time after 4 years of owning this rig, I have managed to fully max it. The PCI slots have no more space as 2 cards, sound card, + VGA PSU cable have take all of them. With the addition of VGA PSU in the front I was forced to give up my third TT Cage 120mm fan, which kind of sucks...but I'm still happy...
Cheers..

5 out of 5 eggsDrool, Drool...

Pros: games look GREAT! I can max almost everything out. I can run Crysis on High pretty smoothly. (you need DX10 for very high settings) its a nice card!

Cons: This card is HUGE! it touches the other side of my cooler master mystique case, and barely fits. it also runs REALLY hot. before installing my 3rd case fan, while playing crysis it became so hot i couldn't touch it. thank goodness it didn't do damage... i think a lot of that has to do with its size... can you say airflow issues? now it averages about 79 deg. Celsius during intense gaming. I don't know how hot it was then!
it also didn't fit properly in my case at first... i'm not sure if it was the cards fault, or my case, but i had to slightly bend the prongs that slide into the slots on the back of the case for it to clear. no big deal, but i didn't want to do it.

Other Thoughts: just make sure you cool this puppy and you will be alright.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks good for me

Pros: Saw an improvement in FPS and content from the start. Moved up from an 8600GTS. Was debating on getting 9800 GTX 1 GIG or a 260, go figure, I get the 280GTX. Thought about even getting an even higher one, but I plan to SLI these within a year so don't think I need to buy a more expensive card. Maybe even use three of these.

Cons: Debated too long on a new video card when I could have gotten 2 games instead of one. My fault for being a procrastinator.

Other Thoughts: Antec 900
Antec 650 PS
Crosshair II MB
Vista Ultimate 64 bit
Amd 6400 x's 2 (Quad core soon)
4 Gigs Mushkin 1066(soon to be 8 Gigs) Runs on 800Mhz due to duel core limitations, will be faster after I receive my quad.(Trying to future proof Ram better)
Bfg 280GTX 615 core


Runs all my games smooth. Works great with Fear 2 and Dead space, etc, etc

5 out of 5 eggsScreaming Fast

Pros: This card is fast. I was coming from using a GeForce 7600 GS to this. I'm able to play BF2 with everything on high, including AA. I can play Empire: Total War with everything on Ultra High and still get very good frame rates. Other older games I play don't even heat this thing up.

Cons: Hottest I've seen it get yet under full load is 64 C.

Not hardly a con though.

Other Thoughts: I was afraid heat would be an issue for me, but with this card I've found that controlling the fan speed via the nvidia control panel keeps me nice and cool.

Definitely an excellent card.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: I've got the card from B&M in Sunnyvale CA, store couldn't print the rebate form ate the register, and they promised to mail it to me. From my experience, I shall not hope for that rebate. The form is specific for the store, and to be eligible at BFG it has to be the original print copy. So, most likely I will return that card.

I played two days already with this card, it overheats :(. I have four 120 mm fans blowing in the case, and spot fan inside too, but the card overheats after around and hour play. I play Far Cry 2, everything on maximum graphic quality, 24" monitor AND Physics. It works smoothly though. After an hour develops artifacts and in 10 seconds after that locks the system and reboots. I guess would be OK to under clock it and still use it, but then, is it worth 100 dollars more than the GTX260 from Evga? I don't think so. My total before rebate was 299 bucks.
