Thumbs up Re: XFX GeForce GTX 285 Black Edition

I have (2) of these and will soon be purchasing a 3rd for TRI-SLI. I'm very pleased with the performance and they run cooler than my XFX XXX Edition GTX 260s did. When I purchased mine from Newegg a couple of weeks ago, I received FarCry 2 but if you purchase them now, you also get COD5.

almost went with XFX for mine, But found the EVGA a little cheaper and got COD WAW with it, And got 2 copies of Farcry 2 with a build for a friend so we both kept one. Now I can put WAW on my other system so my nephew can kill along side of me.... Little %*&$% would probably just kill me though.

I wouldn't waste your disc space by installing WaW. It sucks. As for the GTX 285's, the XFX comes with both FarCry and COD5.

Compared to COD4, it was a huge disappointment. I play COD4 everyday.

I didn't think far Cry 2 was that bad. Some of the missions get repetitive but the sandbox layout and good graphics made up for it in my opinion.
