Pros: Seemed like an excellent video card.

Cons: Quit after not quite one month. Verified failure with post code card. Replaced with older card, system has worked perfectly ever since. Emailed support, absolutely no response. BGF touts customer service, and I selected this card based on those claims. I can't even get them to respond. Highly recommend not buying. I will have to sue in small claims court I guess.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bang For The Buck

Pros: Great card. It runs everything I throw at it. Much faster and runs much cooler than the 8800 GT that it replaced.

Also BFG & New Egg customer service rocks. First card I received had some bad RAM on it and had to be RMA'd for a replacement but BFG quickly diagnosed the issue and New got the replacement out fast.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Definitely recommend this card. Can't beat it for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Runs all my games at max

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: First and foremost, I go nvidia every time. Bought a couple of of ATI radeon cards back in the day will never get that money or lost played time back....ever. Nvidia fanboy all the way.

Bought this card a few months ago to replace my EVGA 8600GTS 512 card and wow, I am impressed. Dragon Age looks absolutely stunning, like a completely different game. All my other games run flawless without a hiccup at max. I never buy the lastest and greatest card, usually upgrade every 18-24 months with a card in the $200 price range and I am very happy and would highly recommend this card to fellow casual gamers who have other things to spend their money on than 400+ cards.

Pros: I've had this card for a while and it always lets me play my games at max graphics and max res. I reccomend this card to anyone.

Cons: It's kinda big. Unless you got a decent mid-full case.

5 out of 5 eggsIts a BFG, nuff said.

Pros: My brother has the BFG 280, the 260 max core 55 keeps pace with the 280 with ease. Yes … it’s a bit slower but not much. You can barely tell the difference, and it cost me half the money.

Cons: The first one went belly-up after 6 weeks, it happens. I called BFG for a RMA number and in short order I was up and running with a new card.

Other Thoughts: No over-clocking here, I wanted a gaming computer without stability issues and that would slice through games with ease at a “reasonable” cost. I am building three gaming computers, one for my son, wife and my self. I could not be happier, heres my system specs:

MOBO: ASUS Crosshair III Formula,
RAM: 4GB Mushkin DDR3 1333,
CPU: AMD 555 Phenom II - 3.2GHz Dual-Core,
Cooling: ZALMAN 9300AT (lapped - w/fan removed) plus (5)120mm Fans,
HD: WD Black Edition, 1TB games, 250 GB operating system,
GPU: BFG GTX 260,
CD/DVD: LG with LightScribe,
Sound: Sound Blaster X-Fi Fatal1ty Pro,
PSU: PC Power & Cooling 750W,
Case: Cooler Master Centurion 590,
Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit – OEM,

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent card and a great overclocker!

Pros: This card has decent performance out of the box, but where it REALLY shines is how well it overclocks. With one 2 minutes of tweaking, I'm running Battlefield: Bad Company 2 at 70fps SOLID. 1680X1050 with everything set to high.

After spending more time tweaking and testing, it just keeps getting faster and faster and staying stable.

I'm posting between 17,000 and 18,000 in 3DMark 06 with a Core 2 Duo processor.

What a champ!

Cons: The card is BIG. I have a mid-ATX and it comes to within 1" of my 3.5" bays at the front of my case. Not a problem, but a heads up.

Also, the onboard fan gets a little loud at full tilt. Easy enough to fix tho'. Boot up any good GPU overclocking software, including nTune and set the fan speed to 70% manually. Plenty of cooling and pretty quiet.

Other Thoughts: I'm loving this card. The plan is to pick up a second on in a month or two and run them SLi.

Overclocked to boot? Forget about it.

My System:
Intel Wolfdale E8400 3.0ghz - OC'd to 3.9ghz
4 gig - G.Skill Pi DDR2 Ram (2x2gig)
BFG GTX 260 896meg Graphics Card
Windows XP Pro

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card!

Pros: though it is not "top of the line" this card is amazing regardless, as long as you have a good set up with your pc this card will handle anything! I can run bad company 2 multi-player and hit 100fps, and never anything below 60, with all settings set to high ( 1440 x 900 is the highest my monitor goes). L4D2 runs silky smooth on all high as well.

Cons: it's not a top of the line card, but like i said if your system is set up correctly it can handle a ton

Other Thoughts: I see a lot of people who buy new GPU's then complain that they didn't increase their graphics. Though a good GPU factors huge into your gaming performance, your CPU and ram also effects this. If you have a slow CPU, it will bottleneck your GPU. If you are thinking of upgrading your GPU it's a good idea to look at your CPU and ram as well and see if you can upgrade those. I did and like I said I can get 100fps in Bad Company 2 with all the settings set to high.

My current set up:
Intel q9550 core 2 quad
4megs of DDR2 ram ( 1066 )
BFG GeForce gtx260
gigabyte GA-EP45-UD3L

5 out of 5 eggsLarge and In Charge

Pros: This card, bought on Newegg, performs quietly and with reasonable temps even in a midtower. We cannot hear it over the case, PSU and Zalmans even when the fan is tweaked up.

Excellent to astounding performance on games such as COH, TW: Empire, CoD, and AvP with all settings set to max, Res is 1650 x 1080 on a 22' glossy Acer flat screen and looks phenomenal.

On paper this gives about 85 to 90% of the performance of the 1gig 285 GTX with similar factory oc profile. In practice, the performance difference was not readily perceivable by those of us who compared them, though there might have been a few single digit fraps differences here and there. Anything much above 30 is barely perceptible to the average human eye anyway.

The 285 makes sense for larger screens where resolution and jaggies may be more of a problem, otherwise, save your 150 to 200 bucks - its just vanity for anyting we saw in the 1650 x 1080 range and downward.

Easy install, easy driver updating.

Cons: Its still more expensive than it should be because of the stagnation in the vid market for the last 18 months. This will change when the Fermi gets released (reportedly by the end of this month - March), but I wouldn't hold my breath. If you need a card, get it. You can always temporize that if you wait JUST a little longer... and thereby NEVER get a card at all. Live and be happy.

We all know its large. We put this into an A-Top Gladiator and it JUST fit in, clearing the HD cage by a whisper. Still, if the mobo is ATX form factor, and you have a midtower, this should fit into virtually any midtower or above-sized case.

Have to register within 30 days electronically, no acknowledgement that you registered causing what should be an unneccessary contact to verify they got it... truly the only thing about the BFG warranty I don't like.

Other Thoughts: We have used BFG products exclusively since 2000 in part because we have nearly always had to upgrade for technology advances long before ever they quit despite truly herculean useage in some cases and in part because we only use NVidia products because of driver architecture. Playing with drivers constantly is endemic to what we do and the less reg-editing we have to do the better. Dimwitland uses 5 BFG cards itself and this 260 replaces a BFG 7900GTX OC.

We have not had the card long enough to check OC headroom or temp behavior, and will run our own tests when this is on liquid.

Newegg delivered in the 3 days it forcast via UPS as expected. The UPS package arrived smashed up as expected. The massive over-wrapping and protection afforded by Newegg shipping assured the BFG box inside was untouched anyway- as expected. Gotta say it: It really was Eggcellent service again! Only place to shop... Wish they sold milk.

1 out of 5 eggsgoing back to EVGA

Pros: It fits in my CoolerMaster Stacker case Great Paperweight!

Cons: Bought the card in December and have been dealing with what I thought might be driver issues since. Cant play COD4 or MW2 (Garbage Game for PC btw). BFG told me to install drivers from the Nvidia Archives and the only driver that worked was a Vista driver from 05-09. Im on Windows 7. Still couldnt play but at least I had some functionality. Very poor benchmarks on Future Mark. Dealing with Nvidia and BFG was difficult and BFG is finally sending me a new card. They told me this a week ago. Called them today and they are having "Stock Issues". I guess I will have to go back to EVGA. Now I know why BFG is a bottom tier graphics. Get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: Q6600 Proc
Zalman Reserator Liquid Cooled
1.5 TB Western Digital
1000 Thermaltake Power supply
Asus Striker II Formula MOBO
4 gigs OCZ Reaper PC8500 RAM
