Default Graphics card

So I got a computer for $200 and I'm trying to figure out what the hardware is capable of, or really if it's any good. It has an I5 750 processor which I'm good with. I've been trying to look up reviews on the graphics card though and I haven't been too lucky with it. It's an MSI GeForce 260GTX, it only has one fan. What do you guys think about the card? Are there any good sites to find solid reviews on things like this and any other hardware? Thanks.

That is a great card, although its actually worded as "GeForce GTX 260" Here is a link to a site of the card you have: Newegg.com - MSI N260GTX-T2D896 OC GeForce GTX 260 896MB 448-bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Here are some benchmarks of the card:
GeForce GTX 260/280 versus Radeon HD 4850/4870 > Benchmarks: Crysis - TechSpot Reviews
GeForce GTX 260/280 versus Radeon HD 4850/4870 > Benchmarks: World in Conflict - TechSpot Reviews

Let's just say you got a computer for half the price the card sold for when it was new. I use this site for most of my reviews, he will tell it to you like it is without any PR added.
