NVIDIA's 200 series of graphics cards combines cutting edge technology and advanced capabilities for best-in-class performance. The GTX260 is a balanced solution for all your graphic needs. It’s Microsoft Vista ready and equipped with a PCI-Express 2.0 interface. The GTX260 supports 3-way SLI to seriously crank your performance options by using up to three graphics cards for insane flow rates.

The card's core clock runs at 655MHz, relieving your CPU of pixel crunching duty. Data surges through the GTX260's 216 stream processors fed by 896MB of 448-bit 2100MHz GDDR3 memory. Twin dual-linked DVI and 400 MHz RAMDAC lets you display 2560 x 1600 resolution video and graphics on even the largest monitors. Support for DirectX 10, OpenGL 2.1, NVIDIA's PureVideoHD, CUDA and PhysX-ready are built in to render even the most intense environmental effects or HD DVD video with brilliant clarity.

The GTX260 delivers fluid frame rates and HD video with solid performance. If your motherboard can take it, the GTX260 can dish it out.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: MSI, I have used their boards and other GPU's without issue.

Cons: I have had this card for since new and I have tried it in several systems and still the same thing. It will hang on a black screen when loading a game or large image if gaming I have had to do a hard boot in order to get the system back up and running.

It is slow to load a page or image you can watch it scan from top to bottom and they are small images that are instant on other cards. Card temps are excellent so it's not a heat issue.

I am really surprised at this since I have also owned other MSI cards and haven't had issues with them. I have tried every driver I can and no change. I have also updated the bios on the motherboard.

Other Thoughts: The MSI N460gtx Hawk that I have has been excellent, I don't know if there are just issues with the 260 or not but I just haven't gotten anywhere near the performance out of the card I figured it would have provided which is a to bad because when it works (sometimes) it works well but other times it has a mind of it's own.

System specs:
Intel i7 920
XP and Windows 7 Home Prem.
6G of GSkill triple channel
Asus P6X58D Prem. board.
Corsair 750TX psu
Antec 1200 full tower.

I can put the GTX460 Hawk in there and everything is fine.

2 out of 5 eggsGood thing it's been discontinued

Pros: Solid build

Cons: Incompatible with ALL Nvidia drivers I'd apply (see other thoughts)
Heavy
Over-sized
Software utilities are buggy - even with updates

Other Thoughts: I've had this card since 7-6-2010 running with Windows 7 Pro 64 bit. Since 2010, I have applied numerous NVIDIA drivers and every one of them encounters the random, but frequent, "Windows has recovered a critical display driver error". I can't seem to find a fix for it and it's annoying.

5 out of 5 eggs3 years of heavy use, and still going strong

Pros: Maybe I'm just not the gamer that my friends are, but I have yet to see any reason to replace this card. It worked the first time, and every time since. This card is a tank. It's another part of my system that I don't have to think about because it just works and performs, all the time.

Cons: This card is so big and heavy, that it sags under it's own weight inside my tower. I decided to re-route the card's power cables so they'd come over the top of the motherboard, thereby not only providing power, but also providing the card with physical support. It works fine. I'd imagine more than half the weight of the card is the heatsink/heatpipe system.

Other Thoughts: Built to last on a proven design. I'll be sad when I have to upgrade, but at least I can use it for home defense, as a bludgeon.

1 out of 5 eggsCrashing and Failing

Pros: Was a good card...while it lasted

Cons: Crashes and freezes up my system randomly. Emitting annoying buzzing sounds whenever under the slightest stress.

Other Thoughts: I've had it for just over a year. Been failing for a few months now. Started right after warranty expired. Pretty upset and awed. You buy a junky HP computer and it lasts you for 5 years. A high-end MSI card...a year, if even, I don't get it. I don't stress it either.
Be careful when picking up this card...

5 out of 5 eggsSolid Card

Pros: This Card has def got its fair share of stuff I through at it over the years. From playing games and modeling and animating them. I would have to say for 2 years I have enjoyed having this card. To me it was solid I would play any game on max setting for 2 years. It was well worth the money and I was very satisfied.

Cons: Just recently I have been getting issues like the screen would go black, but rarely. I am assuming because the card is finally giving out after having it for so long. Honestly the only disappoint of have had with it is that it doesn't support DirectX 11 and PhysX as good as I would like.

Other Thoughts: Was a solid card and can still hold it self to a lot of today's games still.

1 out of 5 eggsComplete garbage!!!!!

Pros: NONE!!!!!! This card runs very poorly compared to other cards in this price range!

Cons: Had problems with it right out of the box, and have dealt with it for almost two years. I know it seems long, but I only use it for about half hour a week to play FSX, and anything else I have tried to play has been shutting off the monitor. Thought it was just a driver issue but today it died out of the blue!

Other Thoughts: Stay away from MSI! They use garbage to put together their products!

2 out of 5 eggsWorked great for just over a year

Pros: Card was able to run any game I threw at it with max graphics settings (WoW and SC2 in particular). Ran cool and quiet.

Cons: Started having intermittent problems with it a few months ago. Recently having out of memory graphic card errors and causing games and movies to crash.

Other Thoughts: Really disappointed that I'm having issues with this card right outside of the 1 year mark, however it worked great for the first year.

1 out of 5 eggsExcellent, when the card works

Pros: Runs cool... (55-60C)

Cons: Started using the card about eight months ago. Worked beautifully until about three months in. Since then, the card has started crashing more and more often. Now it crashes after couple minutes if it does anything heavy-duty. Be careful when buying....
