The brand already being one of it's top selling points, with lifetime warranty and superior parts.

Even when used alone, this card provides me with amazing framerates and fluidity with the most recent games (Borderlands, Dragon Age: Origins) in high resolution 1680x1050.

The moment I turn PhysX on for the games that support it, framerates go crazy.
This GPU is HUGE. When I opened the box, I feared for my life (or that of my computer). Had to move around some things and cords even considering I own a quite large case ->

I was also confused about the amount of additionnal power this thing requires to be functionnal, 2x6-pin power connectors. Said, cables are provided with the item, of course.
Upgrading from a busted Geforce 9800 to a GTX260, which is said to be a small upgrade if you look at FPS charts from playing Crysis, I am totally impressed on how big this upgrade is. If backed up by a decent system, this GPU will really do an awesome job.

Thinking of getting a 2nd one just to dump some anti-aliasing and anistropic filtering on top of everything.

Bang for buck
Rather large in size
I got this card after my 8800GTS died and I don't regret it for a moment. It offers great performance and is definitely quieter than my previous card.

EVGA offers great lifetime warranties. Register your card on their website and you're good to go.

Experience: 60 Days

Performance, very little thermal output compared to ATI cards, little noise
I purchased this card after being terribly disappointed with the HD 4890.. What a delight! This card is surely not as highly performing, however it stays much cooler, produces significantly less noise, and most importantly does not produce an electrical squeal/coil noise at all! This makes the card better in my mind, as I personally dislike noise, and video cards that act as ovens.

Performance wise, this card plays all my games (GTA IV, CS:S, Crysis Warhead) just fine s 1920x1200 using medium to high settings.

Experience: 2 Weeks
decent overclocker, fairly priced, can play really high end games no problem, cool design, its EVGA!! :p
Loud friken fan!
I have this card for liek 2 weeks so far and I am LOVING IT! I have overclocked it to 710/1420/1200 with jsut a little bit of effort and it can go speed is on 60% (i find it a bit loud) and it doesnt go above 83C on an OCCT burn test (really stressfull so that temp is normal), and doesnt go above 80 on ATI tool, and doesnt go above 75 on crysis all high no AA and on 1920x1200 resoltion. Speaking of crysis... I run crysis on all high 1920x1200 no AA and get around liek 25 fps.
Very good card, yo should get it!

Already pre overclocked
Great performance for well under $200 (after MIR & weekly sale)
Huge, very long card!
Purchased just before the latest 4870 1gb price drop, but happy with the performance just the same. Used the Evga software for fan control and the heatsink is quite capable.
Paired with an E8400 b 3.6ghz and plays everything thrown at it.

Comment: An in-depth review discussing the architecture, die shrink, improvements (and in some cases, downgrades), & a detailed critical analysis of the card itself.

Comment: A fairly interesting review with regards to the die shrink and its performance supposedly being equivalent to the GTX280 in some cases.
