BFG Tech BFGEGTX260MC896OCDE GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Great card did exactly what I wanted it to do replace my 9600gtx. If you are just looking for a good 260 this is the card to get. BFG is a trusted name and the lifetime warranty is very nice to have.

Cons: Not really a con so don't let this way on your decision but to activate the warranty is kind of a pain. I wish it was a simple online registration but its not.

Other Thoughts: This card handles every game I have. Dragon Age, Mass Effect 2, Bioshock 2, Crysis, Call of Duty MW2 ect. If you are not worried about getting that extra 4fps then this is the card for you. My monitor is 1680x1050 and I can max everything out with no issues. On a side note newegg is amazing and I trust everything I have ever bought from them.

Pros: I went from 2g DDR2 800 to this. I cant explain in typing how much of an upgrade this was. This ram is fast and the price is right. Just buy it.

Cons: Not really a con but should be noted. I have the p55 Asrock motherboard and just like other reviews it only sees this ram at 1333. Not really a problem when you boot up just go into the bios and set it to 1600. For those with the p55 Asrock board don't use the default setting on the mother board it only goes to 1333 go into the ram overclocking settings and set it to 1600 problem solved.

Other Thoughts: My DDR2 800 scored a 5.5 on the windows test after I got this ram to 1600 It maxed the test at 7.9. If your scared to mess with bios or overclocking you might want slower 1333 ram but if you have even basic knowledge of what your doing this ram is amazing.

GIGABYTE GV-N26SO-896I GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Card looked good out of the box. HDMI was a nice addition.

Cons: After installing the GIGABYTE GTX260 into my system I went to run the Windows system rating. I was getting normal video then it spun and crashed my system. There was always a small whistle right before the crash. My first thought was to redo the power connection so I did and got the same blue screen error. I used the driver install CD that came with the card and also tried one from Nvidia website same results every time. I reverted back to my older graphics card (9600gtx) and have had no problems. I RMA it back and the card was out of stock so they are sending me a check back and I am out $8 for the standard shipping and another $15 to ship it back.

Other Thoughts: Overall this card has amazing reviews and I hate to be the guy to give it a bad rating but what can you do. I was looking forward to getting the same card replaced but its out of stock. I think the worst disappointment was the fact that these are all "hand picked" and mine was clearly making a whistle with an internal error. On a different note Newegg is amazing. RMA was simple and there service is great.
