Summary: I bought this about a year ago for my boyfriend and he still uses it. He plays World of Warcraft and League of Legends. He was so excited when I bought him this and constantly raves about how amazing the graphics are on his computer now.
Summary: I bought this awhile back for $250 when it first came out. It was very powerful and ran everything at high setting. What about for "TODAY" use? It's still very powerful, so pick one up if it's cheap.
Summary: BFG makes good products, but buy this knowing that you have no manufacturer warranty. I recently had a BFG 1200watt PSU with a lifetime warranty act up only to find their website down and to learn of their demise from a forum via a web search on the topic.
Summary: I put this NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 video card in my custom build from 2007 and everything works great. The card fit easy in the Coolermaster eLite case. Would recommend this card.

Summary: My old 8800GTS 320 went bad and I needed a replacement. Given the age of my system and the games I play, the GTX260 was the Price/Performance Sweet Spot. The Spot got SWEETER when I saw this deal on AMAZON for the 216 Core Overclocked BFG card [...]. ([...]!) Despite the fact that the card is HUGE and I had to shuffle around some wiring and Hard Drives in my case, installation was otherwise relatively simple.
Summary: This is a zippy graphics cards for a decent price. However, it may require that you upgrade your power supply. I recently bought my 9-year old daughter and my 11-year old son new computers. What I bought was two Dell SMT-116B desk tops (2.33GHz, 6GB RAM, 750GB hard disk). The reason I bought desk tops instead of laptops was because we never travel with the kids computers anyway, and we already had good monitors that we wanted to use.
