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!
Summary: I can't give a performance review, but as far as BFG is concerned, they did an excellent job. First things first, though. The GTX 275 reference is large. It measures: Length: 10 9/16" Height: 3 7/8" Width: 1 3/8" Measurements taken from the face of the rear plate, not the mounting lip. So if you have a midtower, and have hard drives in the lower front quadrant of your case, you may have trouble fitting this card. This is the problem I ran into, so I'm returning it.
