Great Card!

EVGA GeForce GTX 285 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 01G-P3-1180-AR
EVGA GeForce GTX 285 1GB DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card 01G-P3-1180-AR

Pros: This is an amazing card, far better then my XFX 9800GX2. It is kinda big, but not any bigger then the rest of the modern video cards, just need a decent sized mid or full tower. I use a HAF 922 and there's plenty of room in there. Great support from EVGA, EVGA Precision allowed me to easily overclock the card to 723/1646/1359. And the Evga forums are great if you ever need any help or have any questions what so ever. Would recommend this card to anyone, just tears through games at high setting. Will definitely pick up a 2nd one for SLI when they drop in price a bit.

Cons: Not any problems with the card, though how Newegg has decided to pack my recent orders was rather upsetting. They've been placing all the packages in the bottom of the box first and then pouring packing peanuts on top. So pretty much all there was between the card getting damage from UPS's horrendous shipping methods (which state that all packages are subject to a 6 ft. drop) was a thin layer of cardboard and EVGA's own packing. Been like this with all my of recent orders. Rather upset because they never use to be this bad. You've got to protect ALL sides of a package in the shipping box!

Overall Review: Hopefully this series will keeping produced when Fermi comes out and their price will then go down, because right now its a seller's market and that really sucks because I really want a second one, but I'm not willing to shell out nearly 400 again, so hopefully these will drop down to the 200 range when Fermi comes out and more become available.
