Pros: Very fast, can run any game at max graphics, dual-screen (where supported). Very impressed with the graphics.

Cons: Heat! The card would overheat to the point where it would force emergency shutdowns on my PC. The Nvidia 200 series cards are known to run quite hot, but BFG's cooler is not adequate. Furthermore, BFG refuses to acknowledge the heating problems.

Other Thoughts: I rma'd my card to BFG and they sent me back one where the memory clock was halved, which I was not happy about, but it was still overheating. The great part is that since BFG swapped the card and the serial number no longer matches, newegg can't take it back either. I'm just out $300. Buyers beware...

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Performance is amazing. It runs every game with ease. BFG warranty. Crysis runs on high without a so much as a hiccup. 3 way SLI.

Cons: Need a system that takes advantage of the PCI-E 2.0 slots. runs hot with 3 because of close proximity.

Other Thoughts: Core i7 920 @ 4.2, EVGA x58 mobo, corsair tri-channel 6gb, cooler master v8, zalman 850w psu, Antec 900 case, 300gb raptor, 3x BFG 260 GTX

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: An excellent card with lots of power. It handles everything I throw at it with ease. The upgrade from dual 7600 GT's is a huge boost. It comes with a dvi-hdmi converter and the ability to run sound to the hdmi, which is a nice bonus.

Cons: The card is huge, and understandably somewhat hot.

Other Thoughts: It greatly highlights my system's memory and cpu bottlenecks, which didn't stand out so fiercely before. Additionally my case's airflow isn't quite sufficient to cool this card. So, I'm now planning a new computer around this card to eliminate those issues.

5 out of 5 eggsSurprising quiet, very powerful, very very large

Pros: -These things will chew through most games available at max or near max settings (excepting Crysis, Warhead works great though).
-The power consumption at idle is very low, also very quiet at idle. Combined with my Silencer 750 PSU I don't hear much of my computer when it idles (at least compared to my old one with an 8800 GTS 512 and a Turbo Cool 510).
-Great heatsinks. Hot air goes straight out the back and nowhere else.
-When playing games I no longer need central heating?
-BFG's warranty.

Cons: -A bit of a convoluted process to get that warranty. Make sure to get on that ball quickly, it's a shortish signup window after purchase.
-BIG. Good lord these things have some issues fitting in my Lian Li case...and I have one of the huge ones.
-Lots of little power connectors that need, well, connecting. Can be a pain but that goes with the territory of powerful GPUs.
-2 of 'em in SLI can't run non-Warhead Crysis at 2048x1536 max settings/max AA at more than 2 FPS?

Other Thoughts: These things are quite impressive at the whole "running things at absurd detail levels" on basically everything except Crysis. At the price per frame vs the 280 it's hard to beat these.

4 out of 5 eggsImposing size, but extremely powerful

Pros: This card flies. A 3.33GHz/4GB Core2Duo driving it will result in smooth gaming at a standard of 1920x1200 w/ 4x anti-aliasing; Fallout 3's (settings maxed) outdoor environments might require you to drop the AA down a notch two smooth out those worse-case scenario framerate drops, but the root cause may be Bethesda's engine. UT3 is silk, and Crysis at max settings is on the edge of playability with 4xAA. As for everything else...I can't get seem to figure out a way to get the games to slow down. I wish I were joking. Source engine, Doom 3 engine, most of the time I can't feel the difference between antialiasing and 16xAA. Truly incredible.

Cons: The card is big. Big as in 9.6" long - it will come to the very edge of a standard ATX 12"x9.6" motherboard it is mounted in. In the case of my C2SBX, if I placed the card in the first of the two PCI-E x16 slots, it would render four of my six SATA ports unusable. The card also has a whining sound that is audible only during certain rendering tasks; usually in-game-engine menus, most apparent in S.T.A.L.K.E.R. - Shadow of Chernobyl and Crysis Warhead. It is audible while running the Folding@Home GPU client. The sound is definitely not the card fan - I am not quite sure it is normal but I am certain that it is clearly audible and mildly irritating.

Other Thoughts: Warranty registration went without a hitch; make sure to take down all the numbers you'll need from the labels on the card prior to installation, because if you don't you'll have to yank the card to look them up again.

5 out of 5 eggsJust currios..

Pros: i have read someone saying this card did not support X10?? i find this hard to believe.but im waiting on the price drop.
i recently built a new rig reusing my BFG 78OOgt OC
i know the gpu drives game performance,,but does it?
my build consists of / i920 nehalem/MSI tripple channel MB/WD 32M 500g / 6 g corsair /850 antec PS/ 64b vista/1200antec tower.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: MY point is this chip and memmory drives this older card to the max,i can play anything at full settings.Crysis plays flawless,although i dont think this game has the pull like COD4.you don't realize what your missing till you get a good chip backing it,i don't agree with the GPU hipe.some will argue.i have seen the proof.although a good card will help a slower cpu.rebuild fellows.its not the card its the mobo.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely terrific!!

Pros: This card runs great in my system. It plays Crysis on very high settings with ease, along with very smoothe gameplay. At first I was going to buy another 8800GT and run the SLI configuration, but this card would definitely leave them in the dust. I highly recommend this card, without a doubt. Oh btw, it idles at 40 celcius and about 65 celcius under load. Not bad at all for this beast of a card.

Cons: Absolutely none!!

Other Thoughts: I was told that I may experience some bottlenecking with my AMD 64X2 6000+, but no way. It runs just great with this card.

5 out of 5 eggsFollow-up to previous review

Pros: I decided to keep it even though the packaging was suspect. I added a Thermalright HR-03 GTX cooler and the temps dropped by 6 to 7 degrees C at idle and under load. I added a Yate Loon high speed 120mm fan the the noise problem is gone forever.

Cons: Stock heatsink/fan to noisy when set over 40%. I don't know about you but 42 degrees C at idle seems a little warm.

Other Thoughts: It took a couple of hours to remove the stock heatsink/fan system but it was worth it.

I have hit over 18,000 in 3DMark06 with this card and run the latest games at 1920x1200 without a hitch.
