5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: XFX Rules...... I thought that falling back on this brand would be a major step down from EVGA but this card is amazing. Theyre service is AS good as EVGA just they dont have a trade up program. The card will blow away any games you throw at it. On highest settings (and 16x aa and af) Far Cry 2 is boxed with it and gets around 100 fps average. The Sims 3 runs at around 90-100, Call of Duty 4 and 5 runs very smoothly (forgot to use Fraps).

Cons: My key for 3dmark Vantage was not a valid key..... In progress with contacting them about it.

I have both of the free games but how were they to know. They don't stalk people (yet)

Other Thoughts: XFX is awesome..... Gave me 2 free games that works great on the card. I have yet to find a game that cant run on ultra high settings and be under 30 fps. Thanks a million for the great card out there.

Manufacturer Response:

The included key for 3DM Vantage requires the 1.01 patch or higher or it will give you an incorrect product key error. You can download the patches for 3DM Vantage at http://www.futuremark.com/benchmarks/3dmarkvantage/download. Click on the link for Hotfix 1.0.1 at the top of the page. Thank you.

5 out of 5 eggsDo the math!

Pros: You don't speed electricity period. A 1 rail system is not a gurantee of performance either. I had a 850watt Corsair that couldn't power 2 9800GX2 cards. A mulit rail did from Antec with the same watts and amps. The key is ensuring that you have 2 sets of 6/8 pin connectors and that the manufacturer uses markers like E1 & E2 to know which rail it is on. The 1000 watt corsair does this and the rails ensure additional flow rate at the same time. You do not need 1600 watts for a pair of 295s. The watts are based on an I7 cpu. 775 cpus use less watts and amps ex Q9650 is 95 watts. So add up all of your stuff from the spec sheets when calculating. Nvidia publishes the watts per card on both the 285 & 295. They are lower than the 9 series and use less juice for the gpu power the give back.

Cons: None, most problems are from untrained users and most problems with this card are the same across all 295s not the brand. You will need cooling equivalent to a GX2 for each card so plan ahead. I use the Antec cases since they vent upwards like the 1200 series or 900 series if you want less weight for lan parties.

Other Thoughts: Base your card decisions based on screen size and resolution. If you are using 1680 X1050 you don't need quad sli or tri sli either. You are wasting your money. There is a law of dminishing returns just like cpus. I own a gtx 285 xfx and think the 200 series is excellent compared to the previous gpus. I own a computer company and have sold this to both AMD Nvidia chipset owners and Intel. Stick with Nvidia chipsets for sli and match your rig for what you are doing. You will thank me later when your power bill isn't run up from a 1600 watt PSU.

5 out of 5 eggsEEE

Pros: I am judging these against a 3 way 285 vs two 295's I had to respond to the "person" that tried to speak about electricity. V = RI I to this day do not understand why people use multiple rail PSU's THE PCIe cables MUST have correct current (AMPS) and voltage. If you use a Single rail PSU you will never have to stop and think do these cables carry (?) amps. In a single rail the line pulls what ever is asked for up to it's limit.. That guy speeding up electricity...? what is the point of his review? if ou are stuck with a multi rail, the box should say which cables have what amps, but if you don't use the cables that carry the juice you need, say molexes, sata all the juice is wasted. Bothe the 285 and 295 require a lot of juice (AMPS) I have a 1200W silverstone I had to add a supplement to fully juice 3 8800 ultras so thats 1400W. I did the math to be safe. Get a uktra 1600w, then 3way what not your safe

Cons: Same as with the ATI 4870X2 POWER, HEAT all sovable but out of the box you won't notice it but you are not getting what the cards can do. The manufacturer kida tells ya, but it's hidden, Heat clocks 'em down, not enough AMP's also I gain at least 35% increase by keeping these cards at or under 40c at 80% load

Other Thoughts: When you get these guys allset, plenty juice plenty cool, if your Cpu is less than a i7 3.2 that you cancrank to 3.8 - 4.0 you still will never see the full potential of these cards. With the i7 cooled right and clocked right and some GOOD ram like corsairs 16000 running at full speed on the board they were meant for EVGA "classified"
You'll be blown away totally absolutley dumbstruck at what the rig will do. These products are really bound less and I'm a 54 year old EE been building since DOS was news

5 out of 5 eggsmake sure u hav e proper psu

Pros: The things are fast and smooth no probs any game even crysis

Cons: nds killer psu preferably a good single rail unit

Other Thoughts: I have seen people with 800 + watt multi rail psu not able to run this card they get alot of high pitch noise and card crash isues .Do your home work before u rmamulti rail 4 or more can only push 25 amps per rail max,the card nds 45 amps at least i sugest and run myself pc power and cooling units with these boards even the 750 watt silencer will do nice with one of these

3 out of 5 eggsLet me set some things straight

Pros: I don't own this card yet, but I plan on it. READ OTHER THOUGHTS (below)

Cons: See below...

Other Thoughts: CPUs do not "speed up electricity".

CPUs are nothing more than milliions, or in some cases, billions of transistors crammed onto a silicon wafer (semi-conductor). They are nothing more than electrical amplifiers that make yes/no (0 or 1) decisions about a billion times a second. How do those little things do that in concert? Not by speeding up electricity.

The only way to speed up electricity is to channel it through a less dense medium, like a vacuum of space. But we know that isn't possible, at least not in your everyday PC. The electrical signals travel across "tracers" or wires on the PCB (printed circuit board).

The CPU basically modulates its calculation onto a timing signal, called a clock. This clock is made from taking the tiniest sliver of quartz, which gives off its own unique rythmic electrical pulse proportional to its size. The smaller the crystal, the more frequent the pulse. The pulse triggers the logic gates (advanced theory) and they perform calculations. ;)

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Awesome card... laugh's at most games on the highest setting with an exception of a few... untill I get my other one that I just ordered then even crysis wont be a challange for them :)

Cons: well its not a con because it is the best but it would have been nice if the price was lower... and it didnt come with 3DMarkVantage like some of the other XFX cards do...

Other Thoughts: Core i7 920 @ 3.8Ghz
Coolermaster V8 HS
Asus P6T
6Gb Corsair XMS 3 1333
PC P&C 1200w
1 XFX 295GTX (another on its way)
good for a 22,996 3DMark06 score... (dont have vantage yet)

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing Card!!

Pros: This thing will play whatever you can throw at it. Not sure what the guy below me is talking about in crysis. I play crysis at 1920x1200 with 4xaa on and still get avg. of 56fps... NO OVERCLOCK on gpu! every other game 60+fps.

Cons: Heat is a little of an issue but I will be going water cooling soon. The card also makes a little bit of a whining noise in 3d mode but I can't hear it unless my head is right beside the case. Not a problem for me but may be some for others. Have to take out of sli in some games like BIA Hells Highway but thats not the cards falt.

Other Thoughts: My system: CM haf 932 Case
evga x58 motherboard

3 out of 5 eggsNOT BAD !!!

Pros: looks good runs all my games on max settings except crysis [max no aa/af 45-50 fps]. not that i hold any stock in it but my vantage performance score is 20229. i added the evga backplate to it and it does run a little cooler under load.

Cons: first card was doa. this card every now and then gives me fuzzy red/green screen. i just restart and its all ok. other than scores and in crysis no noticable difference playing games from my gtx 260. if you use the hdmi port you don't get anything on the screen until windows loads.

Other Thoughts: new system= q9450 @ 3.6 , ep45-ud3p, 2x2 dominator ddr21066 ram, xfx gtx 295, 500gb hd 32mb cache, xtremegamer sound card, corsair 850w psu, asus 24" 1920x1080.

1 out of 5 eggsI HATE WAITING

Pros: looks cool, it fit into my antec 900 case, comes with farcry 2.

Cons: was DOA. i thought my psu wasn't strong enough to power my system anymore [ i had an ocz 700w ]. i got a new corsair 850w psu and i had the same problem. everytime i would start a game my pc would freeze or shut down.

Other Thoughts: i will repost when i get a good card. this is the fith card i have gotten from xfx and the first bad one.8600gt, sli 8800gt, gtx 260, gtx 295

system= Q6600 @ 3.2ghz, evga 680i A1 mobo, 4gb crucial ballistix tracer, seagate 500gb 32mb cache, gtx 260 [for now], xtremegamer sound, ausus 24" 1920x1080.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Blows my old MSI 8800gt away, it's fast fast and faster.

Cons: A bit loud, my power bill has definitely gone up, then again I'm finally playing games on my PC. A bit expensive, but the performance warrants it.

Other Thoughts: Needs a big power supply, I had to buy a 1kw PS by Corsair. It really does require 46 amps. George in a couple posts below knows squat about electrical theory. The typical outlet is 120 volts @ 15 amps, totaling 1800 watt potential. This card requires 12 volts at 46 amps, totaling 552 watts. In order for CPUs to run faster they literally have to speed electricity up, so increase the amps and decrease the volts, hence the need for the PSU, also the whole AC to DC thing.
