It fully supports Microsoft DirectX10.0 for stunning and complex special effects, which will unfold soon with a whole new revolution in game design. Further, the PCI Express x16 helps crank your processing speed to unheard of levels.

Its DVI to VGA adapter provides a sharper and clearer picture (up to 2560x1600) on compatible display units. The ASUS Game LiveShow feature of this card allows a user to stream live games over the internet. They can even record live gaming action in MPEG4 format and share the recorded action with friends and other gaming enthusiasts.

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for buck

Pros: Far better deal at 768mb than all the nuetered G89's for high res, high eye candy gaming. Also a far better deal than all the overclocked 8800GTX models. I have always had nothing but great luck with Asus in motherboards and video cards for quite a few years now. Maybe I have just been lucky but this card rocks. Out of the box this card runs overclocked at 630 gpu, 2000 DDR and 1503 on shaders. Theres still some to be had on shaders and memory and probably more on GPU with better cooling. It survives all the Crysis benchmarks, w/o lockup, at these speeds.

Cons: Nothing other than Nvidia is not going to build them anymore. Get one while you can or wait until summer for a real "new" GPU from Nvidia. The 89's are a waste for the mainstream masses.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card

Pros: This is almost the top card on the market (Ultra version is the next step up). A single card with all the right hardware will really impress most people. I use this card to drive two fully digital 24 inch wide screen monitors and it does pretty well. I have played some games but I am not a hard-core gamer. The card simultaneously drives graphics on both screens pretty well. I run all settings are at the default, no overclocking so far. I haven't needed to tweak anything.

Cons: The drivers can be a bit quirky (may not play nice with Windows Media Player, causing some videos to hang). If you are running the card at its default settings, you don't need to run this software (just another thing to eat into your CPU cycles). If you are going to tweak the settings, you're probably used to having a less than 100% stable system anyway and this won't matter. The card is rather long and tall. In a smaller case it could get in the way of your drives or cables. It'll certainly waste the slot above it as that will be occupied by the cooler. That's the price you pay for the privilege of having this card.

Other Thoughts: This review is based off a single card in my machine. I can't imagine how much better this could be with SLI (dual cards). I have been using the card with this hardware: EVGA 122-CK-NF67-T1 LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 680i LT SLI motherboard, Intel Core 2 Extreme QX6850 Kentsfield 3.0GHz LGA 775 130W Quad-Core Processor, PC Power & Cooling Turbo-Cool 1KW-SR EPS12V 1000W Power Supply, Two SAMSUNG 20X DVD±R DVD Burners SATA Model SH-S203B, ZALMAN CNPS9700 CPU Cooler, CORSAIR Dominator 2GB (2 x 1GB) DDR2 TWIN2X2048-8500C5D, Two Western Digital Raptors WD740ADFD 74GB 10,000 RPM in RAID 0 config, Aerocool PowerPanel Multifunction Panel, Creative 70SB046A00000 Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Fatal1ty Pro, dual Dell 2407WFP monitors.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolute Beast

Pros: 768MB DDR3, 128 sp, quiet fan, incredible performance.

Cons: Very long card, requires two 6-pin connectors, exhaust is quite hot. PRICE, power consumption.

Other Thoughts: I bit the bullet and ordered one, it walks all over my old 8800gts. Its such a long card that I had to move my SATA connections just to get it to fit (no biggie but I can certainly see size issues in some cases). The performance is stunning and for the extreme gamer for sure. NVIDIA did well with this one, it could have been a bit cheaper but you sure do get alot of performance.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect card for Crysis and everything else

Pros: This card can run Crysis as Ultra High quality with very passable frame rates. (Milage may vary with overall machine specs.)
I can run every other game I own at maximum quality with much higher frame rates than I was getting on my old card at lower image quality. (BFG 7900 GS OC with aftermarket heat sink/fan.)

Cons: As everyone else has said. This card is very expensive. I wouldn't plan on the price dropping too quickly as this thing packs allot of hardware.
The card is HUGE! Don't plan on this fitting in anything smaller than a standard case, and even then it might not fit depending on you configuration. (I would mod the case to fit this card personally as it is way too cool.)

Other Thoughts: P.S. I am running games at 1280x1024 with a AM2 6000, 64bit Vista, 4GB ram, and 2 SATA2 drives in Raid 0.
This card runs a little hot with the stock heat sink. 55c - 73c. (Assuming your case has good heat transfer)
I have plan to install Zalman VF1000 cooler, and Zalman RSH88 for proper card cooling. Currently neither of these are available on NewEgg, but I expect them to show up shortly.
I will update to note the temperature difference I see with these items installed.

5 out of 5 eggsIt is a beautiful thing...

Pros: Nothing can touch this card. It has made quick work of any game I put it up against, including Call of Duty 4. Everything looks so real its almost unbelievable. I wondered what I was going to do with such a beast of a card, but I've been making plenty of use out of it.

Cons: Runs HOT with stock cooling option. When playing COD4 it would run at 90C. Its hard to keep your case cool when you're generating that kind of heat. I recommend the Thermaltake TMG series waterblock. Watercooling keeps it down to 40C and even below, but you'll have to run your fan at max rpm.

Oh yeah, price! What was I thinking spending $550 on this thing? (It was worth it)

Other Thoughts: If you plan to water cool both your GPU and CPU, you'll need a second radiator (mounted externally). There's no way one radiator can meet the demands of cooling both units to acceptable temperatures.
