5 out of 5 eggsThe Most Important Part in Your Gaming PC, Period.

Pros: I am very satisfied with the one that I current own. It's one of the highest factory-overclocked GTX280 out there. I have so far tested two XFX GX280NZDDU cards, and, despite seemingly high temperature during load, both work very well and stably. I also open the case and put another side fan to cool it.
It is worth mention that a faster Core i7 or high-speed DDR 3 memory can't help you push FPS of some games even higher, and the most important component in a high-end gaming PC is still a fast video card. I personally tested this card and my Q6600 system and found that the XXX edition runs better then those equipped with a non-overclocked GTX280 with Core i7 Q965! You may go to vr-zone and compare my figures and its figures. It tells us to invest in graphics cards, not expensive CPUs!!

Cons: Price may be a con, but it is totally worth it. The performance you gain from increased frame rate under high resolution such as 1920x1200 or 1680x1050 can't be help much once you have installed a decent processor such as Q6600 or Q9550 running over 3GHz.
My Results:
Resolution - AA - Min FPS - Average FPS - Max FPS
1280x800 - 0xAA - 24.95 - 41.64 - 55.64
1600x1200 - 0xAA - 20.72 - 29.38 - 37.11
1680x1050 - 0xAA - 20.51 - 30.84 - 39.25
1680x1050 - 2xAA - 17.80 - 25.88 - 32.28
1920x1200 - 0xAA - 16.96 - 25.31 - 31.44
1920x1200 - 2xAA - 14.37 - 21.31 - 25.96
Results from Vr-zone
It has a Core i7 @3201MHz, DDR3 memory, but a non-overclocked GTX280 with the same driver like mine:
Resolution - AA - Min FPS - Average FPS - Max FPS
1600x1200 - 0xAA - 16.82 - 24.64 - 31.62
1920x1200 - 0xAA - 14.16 - 21.38 - 26.18

Other Thoughts: With the launch of Core i7, have you noticed that almost all reviews use GTX280 as their standard graphics card in their configurations? Well, I was wondering how much can a new Core i7 help me to increase FPS in some games. Above are my test results running Crysis Warhead ambush map:

System Configuration:
Q6600@3294MHz
Thermalright Ultima-90i with a 9cm Panaflo fan@2450rpm
Crucial Tracer Red 4GB @ 736MHz 4-4-4-15
Apacer DDR800 4GB @ 736MHz 4-4-4-15
XFX GTX280 XXX
Creative X-Fi Extreme Gamer
VelociRaptor 300GB
SilverStone Decathlon 1000W
A Lian-Li Case
Windows Vista Ultimate 64bit SP1
Driver: 7.15.11.8043

5 out of 5 eggsThe King of GPUs

Pros: Super Fast single card solution. Has No problems whatsoever running games at high resolutions(1920X1200), with AA and AF turned on. Nice price drop on these cards as of late. Grab this card if you can, you will not be dissapointed

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card to pair up with my BFG GTX 280 OCX, to run in SLI. My system specs: XFX 680i LT SLI mobo, E8500 wolfdale(stock clock), 2X2gb OCZ SLI memory, Windows XP. I can run crysis at 1920X1200, direct X 10 hack, 8XAA and 16XAF, and average 34 frames per second. My system runs all my games flawlessly, no hiccups while maxing out everything. A great card, I highly recommend it for single solution or to SLI with another overclocked model.

5 out of 5 eggsBeast.

Pros: This thing rips through Crysis on 1650x1050. Everything is on high, and im getting 80 FPS! used riva tuner to get the fan speed up, and it runs cooler than my 9600 GT. Stock fan speeds, with a well ventilated case, it runs just as cool as the 9600.

Cons: none. fits in mid and full atx cases, size is large, but it doesnt matter. ( i actually like it, makes it look more powerful. )

Other Thoughts: Do not tri SLI unless you have something like an Antec 1200 case. Thats what i have, and it stays really cool, even under pressure. If u squeeze it in lanboxes or small mid sized cases, itll fit, but overheat, especially because the fan is pointing down (and cold air sinks (because hot air rises)) itll be like blowing hot air onto ur cards GPU.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: With so many companies making cards, you have to look at who stands out among the rest. XFX is the only one that does that IMO. Lifetime warranty on all cards. Free games with most high end cards. And just last week they posted a press release saying they'd refund cash to early purchasers of G200 series cards to make up for the sharp price drop 2 weeks after release. Those things alone really show they care about their customers and make for a solid company. This is my 4th XFX card now over the last 3 years and I've been super pleased with performance and support.

Cons: My 600w power supply didn’t cut it, had to upgrade to an 850. Another issue I had with power was that I bought a 6pin to 8pin converter for my second PCIE plug. I found out after the fact that these do not supply enough amps, causing my computer to restart during CoD4 and AoC. Another issue, not really a con, but it’s important to note that you should make sure you download Nvidia's tuner software linked on their driver page to manually adjust fan speed to max while gaming. From watching previous card's temperatures without it, I know not to trust that automatic fan speed adjuster. It will be loud, but if your sound is up and/or AC is on, it shouldn't bother you too much. Just lower again for movies/sleep.

Other Thoughts: As for the performance of the card itself, I'm sure you've read reviews everywhere, but to add my own input keep in mind, that I am still on PCI-E 1.0, not 2.0 and running an E6600 @ its default 2.4ghz. WoW 180fps inside, 90+ outside. It plays Unreal 3 with max settings, 4x AA @ 1920x1080 absolutely no lag and it looks immaculate! Bioshock max settings 1920 no lag. Age of Conan max settings 1920, 4x AA, avg 55fps outside and 100+ inside. I'll start messing with overclocking my CPU next week to get some more mmfp out of it, but I can tell already this card will last me well through the next year or 2 and into my next CPU upgrade in the winter. Worth every penny. FYI: 55nm versions due out in early sept if you can wait... I couldn't.

4 out of 5 eggstoo hot for sli!!

Pros: very fast. with sli i achieve p22768 vantage and i could also run steady 35+fps maxed out @ 1920x1080. Crysis settings maxd @ 1650x1050 4x FSAA i get 35+ so i pushed the draw distance and vegetation view distance and the framerate never budged.

Cons: HOT HOT HOT! my specs 790i ultra sli/q9450@3.6 43c underload/xms ddr3 @ 1.6/and the xclio case. i love this case, processor temp dropped from 46c loaded to 43c and idles at 35c. great case but nothing can cool these cards in sli. with my apartment temp at 69F the bottom card still overheated and produced deformations in the picture until it crashed my pc. NOT FOR SLI

Other Thoughts: these cards are mind bogling fast. i couldn't believe my eyes when i watched vantage for the first time maxd at a VERY good frame rate. no physics support for 280's yet. still waiting nv ... still waiting. i've already submitted RMA. i'm going to get the BFG h2oc's, you can't game with these at stock settings.
