Holds up to most of today's graphically demanding games!

Summary: DISCLAIMER: It does not say 'Amazon Verified Purchase' but regardless, I do own this card because I received it from a friend. The card is absolutely massive, I could barely fit it in my NZXT GAMMA Classic Series case and that's really my only minor problem with it. I am not able to overclock it due to my low wattage PSU, but even at base clock this card runs like a beast!
Summary: Okay! so I bought this card in 2010 (3 years ago), and It had been running every game for me with decent graphic settings. Today, I just bought a new GTX 660 card that is going to replace my baby. The reason for it is not because I had problems with this card, but it is because it couldn't handle new games.
Summary: Arrived fast, when i opened the box i noticed it was missing a few connectors. Also the bracket on the back to screw into the case for support was bent, and some of the prongs that actually go into the PCIxE slot were worn off which is very bad in the long run. Also this item runs very very hot, i have another one which is about 1yr old and it runs at 44c this one runs 50+ sometimes 60 ingame while my card never reaches above 48 (both fans set to 85%).
Summary: The video card is good choice. The manufacturer is NOT. BFG's "Trade-up Program" is a joke and beware of products not supported by the program. Please consider other manufacturers prior to purchasing this product or any other product from "Big F** Guns" (aka BFG).
Summary: This card is a very good card. Went from a nvidia 9400 to this card and am having amazing results. I did have to change my power supply box from 250W to a min req. of 550W (i bought 900W) as a result from my factory made pc but performance has about tripled in fps on many of my games with just the basic setup for my Pavilion m8417c and no other upgrades. For the first time I have a pc where everything else seems to be slowing down the graphics card. Very Nice.
Summary: I bought this card as an upgrade to bfg 8800gtsoc when bfbc2 was released. the good old 8800 wasn't beefy enough for bfbc2. this one card 275 is perfect for any game to this date (March 2010) If you were considering an SLI setup, i'd advise to just run one BFG GTX 275 OC on a 16x pcie slot, it's faster than 2 8x pcie which is all you can get at the moment. not to mention cheaper.
Summary: This Video card is extremely powerful. with the addition of Nvidia features. I can't imagine anything better. Run fast. fairly quiet. I hear its a pretty hot card tho. For me I get around 40s idle so imagine load. Still its performs like a beast.
Summary: This card has breathed new life into my 3 year old computer. I can run the new Battlefield bad company 2 on high settings with an Athlon 64 x2 based system, and can for the first time run Grand Theft Auto 4 at a decent frame rate on medium settings, even though the recommended system is supposed to be a quad core. Ive been using this card for a few weeks now, and the only compliant i have about it is that now i need a new motherboard with pcie 2.o to keep up with it!
