EVGA offers the best support on the planet for most of their cards. A 2-year warranty may not seem like much but the fact remains that few people have video cards longer than 2 years, especially for those that want the higher end cards and need a hold me over card until the next generation of cards are released or they can afford a new card with the features and performance that the GTS 250 would offer. - read more

While performance is not much improved, a lot of it can be attributed to the fact that the higher clock is only a fraction higher than the reference card. The card Overclocks extremely well with almost 100MHz overclock attained using the cooler. - read more

XFX’s move to making ATI-based video cards is a long awaited one. With NVIDIA having troubles throughout and with the economic recession in full force throughout the computer industry, choice and price/performance are more important than ever. With retail price of only $15 USD more than the next expensive XFX HD 4890 card the XXX Edition is well worth the purchase as you get a 50MHz overclock out of the box and the support that XFX is well known for. - read more

Workstation video cards are a totally different market from the consumer gaming cards. What is unacceptable in price to the average consumer is considered a bargain for workstation video cards. Quadro cards are the number one workstation graphics card on the market today, according to Jon Peddie Research.

Triple SLI is all about the Benjamin's.

The ASUS ENGTX260/HTDP/896M/A video card is an interesting mix of the latest NVIDIA technology (in the form of 216 cores, 55nm version available, PhysX) and a reasonable price (239.99 after MIR as of this writing). Performance wise the card has the horsepower to outshine the ATI Radeon HD 4870 video cards in every benchmark that matters and ASUS cards come with a load of extras including a Multi-Language User Manual on CD and CD Wallet. - read more

In terms of GeForce GTX 285, the card is quite obviously a speed bump of the GeForce GTX280.

The positives of this card include an excellent cooling solution that doesn’t quit and keeps the card running cool. Under load temperatures of 44C maximum at default clock speeds is just amazing. The card overclocked successfully to near the maximum allowed by the Overdrive utility or the ASUS iTracker utility. The card is very popular among enthusiasts as it offers high performance at a reasonable price. - read more
