Summary: Was looking for a lower end card that could handle BLOPS II (consistently at over 60fps with medium settings). I'm not a hardcore gamer or anything, but this definitely does the trick. I'm happy with it.
Summary: Was able to get 60fps on Crysis and 40fps on Crysis 2. This 3way configuration allows way more data to be shared while focusing on Graphic Quality. Obviously an XFX, EVGA, or MSI board would be best for this config.
Summary: I will be buying as many of these as my computer will hold. So I have I one of 4, can't wait to see the full potential. Very fast and can handle about anything I want to play. Beautiful graphics and speed for a mid-range gaming rig.
Summary: As the (current) apex of the 8800 series, this card is great. Rock solid running Wine on Linux. Also ideal for Hackintosh builds. (I got two of these for a 4 monitor setup.) Runs cooler then my older BFG 9800GTX card at 44C (50C when stressed). Fan powers up and down with a louder whirl, but pretty reasonable otherwise considering its class. One of a handful of XFX Vid Cards bought, this has been a solid brand for me so far.
Summary: The card itself is OK, no real frills, seems reliable, but has no headroom. I couldn't get any overclock going without breakup. My system is an amd 64 x2 6000+ on an Asus M2n Sli Deluxe-good for 1977. The GTS 250 barely did better than my old 8800GTS 320 which did overclock 11%. I got a 6% system overclock out of ntune and got 1.7% better performance out of the GTS 250. It is obviously cpu limited.
Summary: I had a 7950 GT Superclocked. It started artifacting very bad in games so I decided to get a new card to hold me over until a new build. This is a very nice upgrade from the 7950GT. Can run setting maxed on Battlefield 2: Project Reality and World of Tanks, the two main games I play. Came with Call of Duty 4 but I do not like that series of games. Overall, great buy and my wife really needed this for her photoshop work.
Summary: After 6 years of playing FFXI and now installing this video card the difference is amazing. I can't believe what I've missed in graphic quality. As a long time and loyal XFX customer once again they've proven to be a notch above the rest.
