4 out of 5 eggsGTX 260

Pros: The card is faster then my Older 8800 GTS(G92)[To a point]. Does not run hot at all. A good deal
It's EVGA

Cons: The sheer size of the card is huge it is a good 3 inches longer then my 8800 was. It is so long it is in my HD rack.
It is only a tad bit faster then my 8800 was and in some games it is slower. It takes 2 power connections.
Cheaper then what my 8800 was.

Other Thoughts: I believe my system is bottle necking my card so I will give this card its good credit. I am running a AMD 5000 X2 black and a K9N4 mobo with 4 gbs of ram so yea lol.
My 8800 died so I wanted something with the performance was closely matched.
If you want a nice card grab this b4 it is deactivated again.
BTW any idea why it keep doing that?

4 out of 5 eggsgood and bad

Pros: the best 260 out there fer sher! heat blows right out of the back of the case instead of in, 55nm tech-which means low temps and easy overclockable, very good frame rates on high specs in any game. and thats what were looking for boys and girls, right?

Cons: only one con and that is the auto fan control. if i leave at auto and i game then it crashes my system, like others have talked about in the reviews of the single card exactly like this one but without the free game, so diff listing alltogether. i noticed that that it is now a deactivated item now which means they probably are having alot of isues with these. if i open nvidia's control panel and set the fan control to 100% then it does not crash when gaming, which only means one thing, that the auto fan control is not working right. on the ati tool it crashes at 83c when on auto fan. so i dont know whats up cause i think it should be able to go higher than that?but if you google gtx 260 ssc crash then there are quite a few people with the exact same prob.

Other Thoughts: would love to have one that doesnt crash on auto fan control. now i have to debate weather to go without a card for two weeks and rma it and spend freakin shipping money to evga and valued time or try to remember to set the fan to 100% before gaming cause it doesnt crash when not gaming. and you would think evga would pay for the shipping both ways since i just got the thing but nope,have to pay extra for that as soon as you register it as a gamble. not very good customer service if you ask me,for a multi million dollar company to go cheapo on there high paying customers is messed up. i can see if i had it for a while but i just got the dam thing!!!!!!!!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsEVGA

Pros: Bought another version of EVGA 260 gtx, but went for RMA for it. With my refund, bought this one. So far so good

Cons: Size : Width, Height, and Legth.

Length : Make sure you have enough length, and you don't mess with your hard drive bay.

Height : You may end up sacrificing a PCI slot.


This card looks like a British double decker.

Other Thoughts: VERY IMPRESSED WITH ITS PERFORMANCE !!!

4 out of 5 eggsNice but somewhat disappointing

Pros: - Fast if you're upgrading from a 2- or 3-year-old card.

- Runs relatively cool.

Cons: - This 10.5" card barely fit in my mid-size Antec NSK6580 case. I had to use pliers to bend the edge of the hard drive cage and make room for the last couple of millimeters.

- Not as fast as hoped, and apparently CPU can be a bottleneck. Despite overclocking a new Q9400 to 3.2 GHz, the card performed only about 15% better than my 8800 GTS G92. For the same price a year later, I expected more. Unless you have an insane setup running at 3.4 - 3.6 GHz or higher, you might as well stick with an 8800 or 9800.

- Can't get it to overclock stably, but not surprising since it's already super-super-clocked.

Other Thoughts: Pay no attention to the people who tell you to jack up the fan speed to keep the temperature at some ridiculously low number like 130 degrees (that's Fahrenheit, not sure why people report degrees C when we use F in the U.S.). Automatic fan control works just fine. These cards are designed to run at 180 - 200 degrees for years. Who are you going to trust, NVIDIA's engineers or a few end-users?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat A+++++

Pros: This is a great card to have and its running all my Games at MAX Settings. Its also very Cool staying at 43C Edle and 51C at load. the Temps also apply to Mirrors Edge. (No Overclocking)

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I don't have the best hardware, nor the best case. my case is small and the card is very cool. my set up is:

Intel Pentium D 2.80MHZ
Asus P5PL-LE (HP MOBO)
Corsair 620W PSU
3GB RAM
Vista Ultimate 64 Bit
HP Media Center PC M7160n Case(MOB)

5 out of 5 eggsbest in class

Pros: couldn't be more happy with this card. performaces is higher than ati's 4870 hd. will even run crysis warhead 1680x1050 with enthusiest setting with minimal slowdown.

Cons: very large card, had to move 2 hdd's in my antec 900 case for it to fit. be careful and measure from the bracket to at least 10.75 inches to make sure you have room.

Other Thoughts: evga strikes again with another ssc graphics card.

5 out of 5 eggsVery nice...

Pros: I purchased this card when the price dropped, and it became a great deal. This card blows away all the 4870s, and all the old 260s. In fact, it's pretty much comparable to most of the 280's I've seen. The only single card that significantly outperforms this thing is the gtx285, and right now it costs almost 80% more! Does it offer 80% more performance? No way...

Drivers seem flawless so far. eVGA Precision is also a nice little program. So far I've only played Mirror's Edge and L4D, but they both ran wonderfully on maximum settings at 1680x1050.

I haven't tried to overclock yet, don't need to. However, I hear of several people who have these cards running the core clock at 700-750. Probably need to crank up the fan for that... I have my fan on auto, the card idles at 51C, and peaks around 72C. I think that's fair.

Cons: It is big, but as long as you have a full-size case it's no problem. Mine fit just fine. Can't really think of any cons, was a breeze to set up and install...

Other Thoughts: I've been buying eVGA for almost 5 years now. Very happy with the products and service, hope they keep it up.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great performance for relatively inexpensive price. I thought heat might have been an issue being an SSC edition, but even running WoW with maxed setting it only hit around 57 degrees (idle at 42) with the fan at 40%. The EVGA precision tools, which come with the card, I increased the fan to 75% and dropped the temp. to 51 degrees. So long as your case has decent circulation it should be a none issue.

Cons: Very long card, I have an extremely large case and it was still a tight fit. It's 10.5 inches long.

Other Thoughts: EVGA is a great company, amazing support, amazing card.

5 out of 5 eggsEVGA superior product

Pros: Card Rocks !!! Installed flawlessly which doesn't happen often.
Fit the mid size case with no problem.
Got Mirror's Edge downloaded and runs without a glitch.
Couldn't expect more. If prices come down a bit more, I WILL get another.

Cons: None !!!!

5 out of 5 eggsWhy waste money on a 280/285/295?

Pros: 55nm process (less heat, more overclocking headroom). Incredible Price/Performance ratio in comparison to other cards. Destroys the old 260 and it's 192 cores as well as the 4870. Runs quiet. Looks spectacular through my case window.

There isn't a game out there that this card can't handle on max settings. GTA4, Fallout3, Bioshock, Empire:TW, whatever, they all run pretty much flawlessly at high settings now.

Cons: It's Freakin HUGE!!! I mean, h0ly $h!t, it's 1.5 inches longer than my 8800GT, a card I previously thought was massive. It barely fit in my NZXT Lexa case, and that case is ginormous in it's own right. I nearly had to angle it in there with a shoehorn!

Really, you may want to check your clearances in your case before you buy, it's that BIG!

Other Thoughts: Seriously, if you spend the money on a 280 or better, you're wasting it. This card is on par with the original GTX 280 and even surpasses it in some instances.

I replaced my 15 month old 8800GT 512mb with this, and the results have been outstanding. GTA4 can now run maxed out @1920x1080 (aside from view distance) and the game runs like butta. Every other game I've tried has been equally impressive.

FWIW, 3dmark 06 jumped from 13,500 to 17,500. HDR2.0/3.0 scores went from ~5000 to ~8000.

FYI - System: E8400 (@ 4.0GHz) / 4gb 1066 / P35 DS3L / XP SP3 / OCZ Powerstream 600w / X-Fi Fata1ity / 1TB WD / 320GB Seagate
