I have two MSI cards and they both work flawlessly. 12 out of 16 reviews on it are positive. If it doesn't work, Newegg will replace it for you.

I personally say skip it. It's not really gonna do anything except recycle hot air around the graphics card. An ideal setup would be to bring cool air to the graphics card and exhaust the hot air out of the case, which the stock cooler already does. Depending on your case, you could just stick a fan in front of it to blow cold air from the front of the case towards it.

No need. That's something you get if you were getting say....to single slot 3850's or 4850's. But the GTX 260 should be plenty cool on it's own.

But do yourself a favor and get this instead. It costs 2 dollars more, is a Core 216, and better rated.

Ummm 63083. . .

The MSI N260GTX-T2D896-OCv4 GeForce GTX 260 is a core 216 card. Read the specs. I wouldn't have suggested it if it were a 192.

Oops. Just realized that. But the other one a better deal IMHO.

Yea, I guess it as a better deal. The PNY costs more and has lower core and memory clocks.

A few notables:
Evga core 216 Superclocked Ed. w/ COD WaW - $185 w/ rebate
Evga core 216 (normal clocks) w/ COD WaW - $175 w/ rebate
XFX core 216 w/ COD WaW - $180

They just seem like a better deal. A) Much better reviews, B) Great brands (not saying Msi isn't), and C) IT COMES WITH A FREE GAME
