EVGA GeForce GTX 280


$371.09 Released June, 2008

Product Shot 1 The Pros:Good performance, can run most games at high settings without much trouble. Keeps itself cool well, as long as the case is ventilated there's nothing to worry about. Installation isn't very complicated, driver setup is straight forward.

The Cons:Draws a fair amount of power, need to make sure your power supply can handle it. Generates a lot of heat that needs to be actively vented from the case. Takes up a lot of room, just won't fit in smaller cases.

The EVGA GeForce GTX 280 series contains 5 cards. All of the cards contain the stock specification 1GB of DDR3 VRAM connected through a 512bit bus. All but one utilize the stock cooler, and all but one are overclocked from the stock timings of 602MHz/2214MHz.
