Gainward GTX 275 896MB
Latest mid range ($200) nVidia card.
The card is a fantastic upgrade to the Asus 9800 GTX that it has replaced.
My first test drive:
AA level 6
All in game graphic options on full.
Automatic downgrading of graphics set to OFF
Full grid of 24 cars at Nordschleife and Valencia
Fps measured by Fraps.
60-70 at start - back of full grid
60-90 in traffic 4-6 cars close in front
70-115 with 1-2 cars in front
lowest 55 fps.
This represents fantastic performance at a great price.
Another big plus it is much quieter than the 9800! Wow someone turned off the vacuum cleaner.
As I say first impressions just installed it, but this seems to be a great bang for the buck card.
Btw the card is a slightly "detuned" 285 but almost equals it on most tests I have seen. It is an answer to ATI's HD 4890.
The 275 and 4890 seem very closely matched. Google "285 vs hd 4890" and you will find a number of test reviews.
One thing to bear in mind the 4890 is an "overclocked" 4870 while the 275 is a downgraded 285.
The 4890 is reported to be much louder than the 275. This would seem to be partly a louder fan and partly because it is set to run at a cooler temperature and therefore requires more cooling from the fan. Whatever the reason I know what I prefer - less noise.

How much better is the Act Labs shifter than the G27 shifter? Just curious, in case my shifter starts acting up, once you get used to shifting with an H pattern shifter, it's unthinkable to go back to buttons.
Now I can show this to my wife and tell her I need a setup like this, as it would make my gaming experience so much more enjoyable.
It's not fair, Tim got to get all this, why can't I?
Think I'll have to do a lot of kissing up to maybe get a few new items.
Showed the wife, she said why don't you build a setup like that, so maybe in a few months when I get a few bills took care of I can.

It was a great price too...FREE!! My brother bought it for me! Thanks bro!
You could try kissing up to him TJ....maybe not Be like kissing up to an oversize gorilla, I don't know how his wife does it!
Alright Tom!! You will love the triple monitors!
If I had a wife, I would want her to be as understanding as yours!

The only drawback in GPL is that it's very hard for me to see chat messages while I'm driving because they appear far left on the left monitor. I have the side monitors angled at 55 degrees to give a more wrapped around feeling and the only way I can see chat messages is if I physically turn my head to the left and look there. Would be cool if you could adjust where chat messages appear on the screen so you could have them in the center monitor but I don't know if that is possible.
