Calibre series do what the say, performance and lifestyle. One of the best vga coolers is placed at one of the best GTX260 cards and makes a very nice combination.As we can see the performance of this card is really nice, and about 20% faster than the Msi Gtx260.

 

Noise levels are also very low,when in desktop or watching movies the card can not be heard at all, at really heavy load the fans spin up but they never become anoying like my old 7950GT's that made me think they will take off.

 

Calibre also offers a 3 year warranty for the people that will register at their website, and is considered to have one of the best after-sales support.They will respond to any email within 48 hours and will help you solve your problem.

 

I would like to see a bit more stuff in the box, because everyone gets happy when there is lots of bundle.There is not even an SLI connector.Also the lack of heatsinks at the mosfets can be disantvantage because at high overclocking they get REALLY hot and heatsinks are a must for stable and reliable operation.

 

 

Pros

  • Extremely nice looking
  • High performance
  • High performance cooler
  • Nice packaging
  • Good support
  • SPA works flawlessly

 

 

Cons

  • Bundle
  • Mosfets have no heatsink

 

 

"If you want a nice looking graphics card that can kick ass in gaming then this is for you..! "
