I have a MSI N275GTX TwinFrozr OC GeForce GTX 275 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card - Retail I bought at Newegg for $235 on 9/1/2009.

My Newegg review:

Pros: I was able to overclock the Video Card. Running full screen benchmarks in 1900 x 1200 for a minute, I had an o3Marks score from 1600 (default settings) to 4143 with an FPS avg from 22 (default settings) to 69. Max GPU Temp at 75C.

Default Core Clock from 666 MHz to 720 MHz
Default Shader Clock from 1476 MHz to 1596 MHz
Default Memory Clock from 1161 MHz to 1260 MHz

Cons: While the highest o3Marks score was 4143 after trying different settings, the average score I've been getting is 3501 with the same settings as the highest score with a 58 FPS average. Still, more than doubled the default setting performance. Not really a con, but would always like to see more of an overclock. :) 

Other Thoughts: Doesn't come with a game... but Max GPU Temp being 75C is pretty good.

FurMark to stress test and benchmark. GPU-Z to monitor Core Temp. EVGA Precision to hardware overclock (Riva-Tuner wouldn't work with the latest drivers, and EVGA Precision you have to reboot in order for the settings to kick in).

Note: The latest firmware update with NVidia is unable to software overclock, just so you know. You either need a previous version of the firmware, or wait until they fix the issue.

Prices of video cards, along with SSD's and memory have gone up. Name your price and I might consider.

Blues screen, are you looking for those cards specifically. Or would a 9800 gx2 suffice?

Hi there, depends. I'll have to check my power supply in my other computer. What's your price?

Hmm, sorry I'll have to decline. I dunno why the retail price of Nvidia cards have been going up these last few months.
February 23, 2010 3:29:54 PM

Hi there,
I'd like to buy em but unfortunately I don't think it'll do me much good.

A gx2 isn't needed for my main rig - while I would've loved to get it for my 2ndary rig, I just checked and it probably can't handle it with its power supply, nor do I think the small-mid case w/ so-so airflow could handle a dual-GPU card.

=(

Anything else?

I got two Sapphire HD 4850's for sale

$80 each, $160 shipped.

Both overclock to 690 mhz core/1190 mhz memory, both stay under 60c under full load (even after 13 hours of folding for Tomshardware)
Let me know if you want them.
April 13, 2010 5:47:51 AM

I have an EVGA GTX 275 w/Backplate I'd let go for 200$ shipped or an EVGA GTX 275 Co-Op I'd let go for 270$ shipped.

I have a MSI 4890 Cyclone I'm looking to sell, It's a great card, runs almost everything i have at full settings, but i want to get a 5850 so i can run crysis at full settings (this card can only run them on high) i'll be willing to ship it to you for $150 shipped. Seeing as i bought it for $220, i think its a pretty good deal. Extra info, its only been used for 3 months, and can keep itself at 25c easily with its huge heatsink and fan.

I have a BFG GTX 260 Maxcore @ 700/1495/1200 daily stock volts

Can reach 745/1590/1255 with only 1.62v (Temps never reach 55c in games unless ambient is over 80F).

Kombustor/Furmark w/ fan speed on auto never reaches 70c. With fan curve set properly temps never reach 60c no matter what.

Pic:









This GPU has never seen anything over 1.87v and has not reached 71c either.

Asking 150.00$ Lifetime Warranty (if anything EVER happens its covered).

I paid 245.00$ direct from BFG.

Edit : I also have the original box/acc/adapters etc...
April 21, 2010 3:44:16 AM

Hey there, thanks for your offer but I am looking for cheaper options or 4890s or 275s for around that price.
Also, I think my local microcenter sells bfg-maxcores 260s for around the same price, gotta love 'em.


thanks anyways
April 21, 2010 2:15:41 PM

Problem with the 260's (BFG) that Microcenter sells is the fact that they only have 55nm available. If you want overvolting options you need a 65nm =).

http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml...

Make sure you get a GPU that can overvolt since you get an extra 15-20% OC vs the the 55nm's.

65nm 260's can reach 275 speeds quite easy ;) 

Cheers ;)

I have an EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 Superclocked Edition. What kind of price are you looking at?
April 30, 2010 4:31:57 PM

^ Overclkr, aye.

mrkandrw, cheap prices. lol

bump
April 30, 2010 4:50:48 PM

I sold mine on e-bay for 173.00$ =)

Lifetime Warranty and Overvolting option, doesnt get any better than that !!



April 30, 2010 5:13:27 PM

^ Nice.

I had a GTX260 but sold it as well. Then I bought two 4x00 ATI cards. Then the 5x00 cards.

ATI has almost made me into a fanboy... :D 
April 30, 2010 6:43:26 PM

Im not impressed so far with my 5850, AMD's drivers are not up to par =(

The GTX 260 gave me 0 issues, everything was soo smooth and the performance was great. With the 5850 I get issues in BC2, Dirt2 and L4D2... Screen flicker every now n then regardless of the game.. Meh, kinda bummed out ATM..
April 30, 2010 7:47:12 PM

Awww.

Well I still plan to get a 5850 if I can find a good price used, or if the price goes down to the MRSP of $260...or if liquid sells me one of his 5870s. XD
April 30, 2010 8:21:27 PM

I may have 1-2 for sale later in the weekend.

April 30, 2010 8:38:58 PM

I have a evga gtx 280 fs. 185 shipped.
May 1, 2010 1:31:36 AM

May 1, 2010 8:11:45 AM

Hi Ika, sorry but I won't be needing any GX2s.


Hi lyang, do you have the box, cables, etc?

Also, do you have a picture + a card with your name on it?
