NVIDIA's 200 series of graphics cards combines cutting edge technology and advanced capabilities for best-in-class performance. The GTX285 boasts a 2nd Generation NVIDIA Unified Architecture solution for all your most demanding graphic needs. It’s Microsoft Vista ready and equipped with a PCI-Express 2.0 interface. The GTX285 supports 3-way SLI to seriously crank your performance options by using up to three graphics cards for insane flow rates.

The card's core clock runs at 675MHz, relieving your CPU of pixel crunching duty. Data surges through the GTX285's 240 stream processors fed by 1GB of 512-bit 2520MHz GDDR3 memory. Twin dual-linked DVI and 400 MHz RAMDAC lets you display 2560 x 1600 resolution video and graphics on even the largest monitors, or output to your home HDTV via the HDMI connectors (DVI-to-HDMI adapter is included) for maximum flexibility. Support for DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1, NVIDIA's PureVideoHD, CUDA and PhysX-ready are built in to render even the most intense environmental effects or HD DVD video with brilliant clarity.

The GTX285 delivers fluid frame rates and HD video with solid performance. If your motherboard can take it, the GTX285 can dish it out.

1 out of 5 eggsguaranteedpos

Pros: Fast card when it works.

Cons: Defective card crashes & freezes among other issues. Poor RMA process. After a month of waiting, I received a damaged card as RMA replacement. I just waited another month and received another damaged card. Support has given me the run around.

Other Thoughts: I've owned 3 BFG cards with a 66.6% fail rate. 7800gtx was a great card but burned out. 8800gts works great still to this day. GTX285OCPE is defective and not replaced. I should have went with EVGA.

5 out of 5 eggsWow

Pros: Fast. Really fast. I upgraded from an 8800gts (640mb) and this card easily runs at three times the framerate in most cases. It's pushing a 30" dell at 2560x1600 and I can actually run my games at the native resolution with all the eye candy turned on. If you're wondering if you should buy this card...BUY THS CARD.

Cons: Not one.

Other Thoughts: It's a huge card. I'm running it in a Thermaltake Armor case. The end of the card is ~3 inches from the back of my hard drives. If you have a small PC case (short front to back) upgrade that when you buy this. On my 790i Ultra motherboard, the card actually hangs over the end of the board by almost an inch, covering the floppy header.

5 out of 5 eggsBFG= My New Best Friends

Pros: This card is all around amazing. It runs very smoothly and is a lot quieter than I was expecting. My old PNY 9600 ran significantly louder and hotter than this massive GTX card and I am very presently surprised with the outcome. As far as games go, they all run perfectly. This card is more than enough for any new game out there.

Cons: None at all.

Other Thoughts: The card isn't as big as I was expecting, but it is still quite large. I was thinking about adding this to my water cooling, but it really does run cool enough.

4 out of 5 eggsunstable/unable to overclock

Pros: Upgrade from an 8800GTS 320M, very playable frame rate in all games with all settings maxed out (1680*1050). Scored P14000+ in 3DMark Vantage with Q6600@stock clock and DDR2-667 Ram.

Cons: Stock clock (675/2520) is unstable for some games. Clock down to 648/2484 everything is fine. Don't even think about overclocking.
Price went up, used to be $299 after rebate.

Other Thoughts: I probably need better cooling for my system.
Attempted to trade up for a GTX 295 but never got response

5 out of 5 eggsOutsatnding card

Pros: I only upgraded from a GTX260, but I can see the difference. It also runs cooler. COD WAW, Farcry 2 and Empire: Total War both run smooth with all settigns maxed. I'll be adding a second, I'm just not sure there are many games yet that will exploit the power of both.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Running it with Asus Striker II Formula, E8600 and Raid0

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The card is much quieter than I expected it to be. I grabbed this card to mainly play first person shooters (FEAR, Call of Duty: WAW, BF2, BF2142, and Crysis mainly). I've tested the three of them out so far and I'm about to run BF2 and BF2142 all at max settings and highest resolution with no lag. It's a definite step up over my last AGP GTS8800.

Cons: None for my setup

Other Thoughts: The latest driver posed no conflict with windows xp. I'm able to run my games smoothly and that why I purchased this card. I also dropped this kind of money on the card because I know it will be able to play games for several years to come. I have no complaints about this card or its value.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Card, Solid Performer

Pros: I bought two of these cards to install in my new system. The build quality is excellent. Some have complained about the lack of full enclosure on the board side of the card. Well, if it was, it would be a very tight fit in an SLI configuration. The cards run very smooth. The fans are not audible over the other fans in my case.

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: I have not benchmarked the cards yet but every indication would be that they will be solid performers.

System as follows:
Core i7 920 @ 3.2ghz (this is only on simple OC, lots of room to go higher).
Thermalright Ultra 120 lapped (idle 38, load 60)
Coolermaster HAF 932
Corsair HX1000
G. Skill DDR3 1600
WD Caviar Blk 640gig in Raid0
EVGA X58 mother board
