Pros: FAST, FAST, FAST!. This thing is BEEFY! I love it. Great card for someone not looking to spend more for a GTX280. With my build and OC'ing I wont have trouble with a game for at least 2 years. Amazing Card.
The specs, say 602 MHz for the core clock and 2052 MHz for the mem speed. Got my card and it was clocked at 626MHz Core Clock and 2100 MHz mem speed. Nice job EVGA givin me the good one!
Instantly overclocked it to 663Mhz, working swell. Not more than 50 degrees celcius
Cons: I have doubts about any rebate but thats not really a CON. I dont think the size is a CON i have a antec 900 and it fit fine. You just have to know cable management and placement. Everything fit like a charm, and still room for SLi
Other Thoughts: Q6700 Quad @ 3.2GHz! EVGA 780i F T W Edition, 4gb OCZ Reaper HPC DDR2 800, Rosewill 850w, EVGA GTX260 SC, Antec 900, Zalman 9700NT.
Bringing this back from the dead, just bout the new Dell Studio XPS with the I7 processor, anyone know if the 260 fits that, it shows it can fit a ATI 4850, which is about 2in shorter, case dimensions: 14.2 height x 6.7 width x 17.1 depth
sorry to break your heart sweetheart, but this dell, if you do your research is out performing a lot of your hard earned custom builds priced at $3500+... not to mention I already have a few custom builds of my own... I only spent 950 on the dell, the graphics upgrade will just be a fun upgrade for me, not a requirement. And if you would read(if you have the mental capacity) you would see that I clearly state that it "can fit" a 4850, I bought it with the base model graphics card. Thanks
