Summary: Summary: Pro: Very stable (much better than my previous SLI setup), low temp, low power (works fine with my old 550w power supply). High performance - can play all games at maximum settings at 1920x1200. Con: The card is very long and takes up two slots. Might cause some problems with small cases, or mean you have to rewire some other components. I bought one last week to replace my aging 7900 SLI setup.
Runs Crysis [Very High] no AntiAliasing, at 42 fps

Summary: This card can run crysis very high graphics settings at 42 fps ocasionally dropping to mid 30s (20-25 is the minimum decent playable fps). And I mean the original unoptimized crysis, the one that brings monster computers to its knees. No Anti-aliasing, though. Resolution 1680x1050 (my monitor native resolution). Rig is: Q9550, Asus P5Q3, 4 Gb 1333 DDR3. Cons: VERY LARGE, make sure it fits your chasis, I had to retrofit mine to make space for this card.
Summary: This was a good purchase for me. The 260 GTX cooling fans are MUCH quieter than the upper-level 9000-series Nvidia cards. I would recommend this card over any 9000-series card, and I would recommend it over the much cheaper 8800 GT, which is totally inept at keeping itself cool under a very high work load.
Conclusion: In the age where anyone can appreciate good power efficiency, it’s almost upsetting to see how much wattage any graphics card manages to pull from our walls. Even the lowest-end models don’t seem too impressive when compared to the power efficiency of a CPU, but that’s how it is, at least right now.
Pros: Performs on par with GTX 280., Despite a factory overclock, the card can still be pushed further., Great presentation; card looks great., Free game (Far Cry 2).
Cons: Since temperatures can get hot at load, custom cooler would be nice.
Excerpt: How can I sum up this card? This card is the perfect mid-range card for the masses. I bought it for £140 and I must say it is worth every penny. Crysis for those of you who dont know is literally THE most demanding PC game on the market right now and this card handles it with ease. It gets about 35-40FPS on mostly high settings at 1440x900. Any other game, no problem at all. Maximum resolution with maximum quality is childs play for this card.
Pros: Overclockability . Speed even not overclocked .
