3.5 Star Review  productwiki.com - Dec 30, 2010

The PNY GeForce GTX 260 is a double slot high end graphics card with 896GB of DDR3 ram. Using the standard NVIDIA cooler, the card is clocked at the default 576MHz/1998MHz (gpu/memory) timings. For more information on the GTX 260 refer to the full report. Features Output Interface: 2 x DVI-I 1 x HDTV Accessories: DVI to VGA adapter DVI to HDMI adapter HDTV Cable Internal HDMI Audio Cable HD Breakout Cable ... PROS: (1) includes all the adapters and cables one would need (2) great performance - will play nearly all modern games at mid range resolutions (3) good for overclocking (4) great value - offers more performance for your dollar than competing cards (5) great for SLI configurations ... CONS: (1) relatively large at 10.5 inches long - might be a tight fit for smaller cases (2) sold with a mail in rebate from some vendors (3) occupies 2 slots and two PCI-E power connectors

4 Star Review   By member revolter - Nov 16, 2008   

Strengths: performance, really nice design

Weakness: SOOOO BIG and power hungry, needs 2 power lines to feed that thing.

Finally I was able to play Crysis maxed on all settings without too much freeze and jerking. Framerates go up a bit from my 8800GTS SSC on 1920*1200 4xAA averaged 19.5FPS and now on same settings I get playable 27.7FPS. I have tried HD4870 but I did not like the heat output of ATI, although I might get by as the temperatures dropping down in my room and ATI could warm it up quite nicely :) Overal I have observed somewhat faster system responsiveness when not playing games, the internet browser windows when opening they pops up noticeably faster. I quess it has something to do with graphics rendering, it seems to me GPU is now bottlenecked by the DDR3 used on Geforce card, with DDR4 or DDR5 Im sure this card would scream way more than it does.
