EVGA GeForce GTX 275
I remember a neighbour of mine, many moons ago, trying to convince me to upgrade my car’s engine. I had a little 4-banger student car and he had a 302 sitting in his garage. A 302…..V8……and he wanted to drop it into my Chevette. After listening to him explain how he’d redo the transmission, rear end, tires, and chop the mounts to make it fit, I politely declined his offer, and his reply was, "But you’ll have the biggest sleeper car in town!". True enough, he was right–my little Chevette would literally have smoked the tires off just about anything else, and the funny thing was that you’d never have known it to look at it (had I gone through with it). There’s something rather satisfying about knowing what’s under the hood is what separates the men from the boys, and you have the rest of the guys hoodwinked.
Yes, that was many moons ago, but I still relish the thought of having some bragging rights that can take someone aback. While my passion of choice may have changed from metal to electronics, the same drive is still there. And so it goes, believe it or not, with graphics cards, the engines that provide the horsepower we crave in our electronic hotrods. And there’s nothing quite like looking at a graphics card that may seem just like the others, yet packs some serious punch under the hood.
EVGA’s GTX 275 is one such card that may very well do just that. It looks awfully similar to the other 200-series cards, but this one is a bit different under the hood, promising a bunch of horsepower for today’s hottest games in what looks to be a rather unassuming exterior. We’ll be testing driving it today on a slew of games to see if can live up to the claims when the rubber hits the road.
