MSI GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card N465GTX Twin Frozr II
MSI GeForce GTX 465 (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card N465GTX Twin Frozr II

Pros: Me and a buddy just got 4 of these to setup SLI in 2 systems, and I gotta say, I am impressed. For $169 each after rebate, how can ya compare these to anything else in that price range? Running 2 of these in SLI on basically identical system, except one has 8GB of RAM, one has 4GB. They run through anything, smooth as silk. I came from a single GTX 285, to a pair of these, and couldn't be happier. Was intended as a simple upgrade to play with and hold both of us over until the new Intel chips come out, then we will be building a couple Intel systems to toss these in. Current System Installed in: X4 965 140w 3.4ghz @ 3.7ghz stock voltage MSI 790FX GD70 MB running SLI Crucial Ballistix Tracer DDR3 1333 @ 1466 6-6-6-18 1T 1.8v 2 of these MSI GTX 465 in SLI on a 23" Acer Widescreen SB Xfi Xtreme Music on Monsoon Planar Media 14 2.1 audio 2 x 120gb WD HDD RAID 0(SSD's soon) Tt Armor(original design) w/250mm side intake 130CFM, & 4 - 110CFM 120mm Scythe Usual dvd/rw, etc.

Cons: Get real.

Overall Review: First off, for those who seem to be technologically challenged, use some flippin' common sense. Giving a great product a 1 egg review because of your incompetence is ridiculous. The card not fitting in your case, or getting tons of blue screens because you are running an under powered PSU, IS NOT THE MANUFACTURER FAULT. The card specs and dimensions are in clear English, use some sense, and measure the system you intend to put them in before buying them, and down rating the card. Same goes for the power needs. Use your heads! It's getting ridiculous seeing all these people, buying solid products, then giving them poor ratings because they don't have enough common sense in the first place. That little 400w PSU isn't meant to run this type of hardware, and neither is that dinky $20 mid tower. Measure, read, and use your head, and stop blaming the manufacturers for your mistakes. And then you whine about getting a free game, come on people. Rate properly or just don't rate.

Still chugging along

Pros: What can I say but good things about these PSU's. Bought mine in May of 2006, been running 24/7 ever since, and still working rock solid. Currently it's paired with a supplemental PSU that runs my GTX285, while this Xclio runs my 8800GTS for physx, an MSI 790FXGD70 MB, 2 HDD's in RAID 0, 2 DVD drives, 6 case fans, and a PII 965 BE CPU. Has run rock solid from day one. Now over 4.5 years 24/7.

Cons: You're kidding right?
