Really qualitative product for the reasonable price.
5 November 2010
Summary: I had not seen products of MSI company before I've bought MSI NVIDIA GeForce GTX 260 video card. And I am glad about it. MSI video card has completely justified my expectations. It's a very good device for the reasonable price.
Summary: I have three of these cards in Tri SLi. Each card is OC from factory and can be OC'd to 730mhz+ on the core. I have mine at 731 on each card on the factory cooler at 1.125v. These cards run pretty cool for the 65nm version. GPU1 38 idle load 50c GPU2 35 idle 48 load GPU3 36 idle 49-50 load.
Summary: I bought this card because my old card GTS8800 wouldn't play the latest games on HIGH settings. (Bioshock 2, Crysis, Oblivion.) This card rocks! I've throw every thing I have at it, and the card performs beautifully. No stuttering or jerkiness.
Summary: I built 2 systems with identical video cards, over a year of rock solid stable performance. My System: Intel Core2Quad, 6 gigs of ram, 2 Terrabytes of HD space on 3 sata HD's, GTX 260 video card, XFX 780i SLI motherboard.
Summary: I waited for a long time until Amazon offered the GTX 260 OC that MSI made, and the waiting was worth it. I was originally going for the 280, but you can pretty much buy 2 of the 260's for the price of a single 280, and the price to performance ratio was not in favour of the 280's.
