Pros: This card comes at a great price, especially if you get the rebate. I didn't want to spend too much money on a new card since the rest of my system is pretty old. I upgraded from my aging 7900gt sli 256mb cards to this, BIG difference. Now i can play my favorite games like L4D2 and TF2 on the highest settings. The cooling is adequate, but only half the air is vented out the back, the other half goes back into the case due to the cooler design. As long as your case has adequate ventilation, you wont have any problems with gpu temps. i have never had the gpu fan idle up even after hours of playing games.
Cons: The card is long, compared to my old 7900gt, so make sure that it will fit in your case. I wish all the hot air was vented out the back.
Other Thoughts: It is not the fastest card but it has a great price/performance ratio.
CPU = AMD 4400 x2
Motherboard = Abit AN8 32X
GPU = PNY GTS250
Memory = Corsair XMS 2x1gb
Power Supply = Thermaltake 750w
Pros: The card has very good performance considering the price. I am able to play all my games with descent frame rates such as FEAR, TF2 and CS:S. It is not the fastest but it does the job.
Cons: I have two of these cards in different computers and both of the fans have failed. the fans actually melted and froze themselves. One of the cards has a few bulging capacitors that are getting ready to go.
Other Thoughts: I recommend replacing the heat sink right away BEFORE your fan fails. i bought the ARCTIC COOLING Accelero S2 and my cards are fine now. now more heat issues. No more fan noise since it a fanless heatsink, highly recommended for maintenance free use. I own other evga cards and love them but these cards are upsetting when it comes to cooling. Buy and after market cooler!READ FULL REVIEW
