EVGA 896-P3-1255-AR GeForce GTX 260 Core 216 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: 1. It's EVGA. 2. It's nVidia. Aside from those obvious factors this card will handle anything out there right now at very high settings. Running farcry2 at 1680 * 1050 with all setting on high and it never drops below 30fps and has yet to get over 51 C under load with the fan at 45%(using EVGA Precision). upgraded from an xfx 8800gts 320 and i was shocked at the HUGE increase in performance. about 3 inches longer than my old card. But fits just fine with 3 internal hdd's in my ThermalTake Kandalf. very sturdy card. Well built. Also runs GTA IV at 1680 * 1050 with high settings at around 25-30 fps. at those settings GTA IV uses around 820 mbs of the vRAM. overclocked with precision to superclocked speeds and temerature only increased by 1 C at default fan speeds.

Cons: None, card is great.

Overall Review: Newegg, awesome as always. got my card to me a day early! EVGA Step-up is always a plus, though i doubt i will need it with this card. Lifetime warranty is a great plus.

Hot Monster!

Pros: Driver support is great. Worked right out of the box. play everything at max settings at 1280x1024 with fps ranging from 70-150. Great card, clocks are great. nice oc ability with it. its very quiet and worth the money you spend.

Cons: Wow this thing runs HOT! first boot up it was running at 78C idle. You absolutely need SUPERB airflow with this card or it might melt your whole system. i recommend ArcticS5 on the heatsink, but only if you really know what oyu are doing, and water cooling, but ive gotten mine down to 55 idle and 61 load so it's ok with just air but really recomend a good LCS.

Overall Review: didnt come with 6-pin PCI-E connector, which was ok for me since i got 2 with my PSU. Dont forget to plug that in or your computer screams very loudly.
