3 out of 5 eggsUGhh... No signal

Pros: It looks great, sounds great, smells great....

Cons: I can't get the freaking thing to work. I just built my first system and I have everything running. When I boot up for the first time, I always get a "No Signal Input" on my monitor. I also notice that the CPU fan spins for a second or two, then stops.

Other Thoughts: Computer Specs: 8800GTS (G92) Gigabyte, 4 Gigs of DDR2, 2.66 GHZ Core 2 Duo, 250 Gig HD at 7,200, GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX All Solid Capacitor Intel Motherboard. I can't even get to the BIOS screen. It is very frustrating.

4 out of 5 eggsScreaming Card

Pros: Extremely powerful card. Single card takes anything I throw at it and laughs at my face for trying. Supports SLI and PCI-E 2.0. Simply said, it's a beast of a card. Runs stock at 700Mhz.

Cons: Takes up 2 ports covering my other expansion slots but that's pretty standard for today's air-cooled vid cards. Runs pretty warm.

Other Thoughts: A side note about SLI that I wasn't aware of when building my new system. When running in SLI mode you cannot run dual monitors. you are limited to a single-display setup. haven't found a way around it, and it rather painful to switch between dualview and single monitor. Nvidia control panel doesn't even remember my settings each time. Doesn't appear as though anyone has figured out a way around this as of yet. I can't give up dualview, so now my second card sits in my case unused...limitation in how SLI utilizes the second graphics processor from what the NVidia techs are reporting.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat card

Pros: stock clock is 700 and memory at 1000. i was able to overclock with atitool to 760 and memory at 1040. 3dmark06 score of 18512. would recommend to anyone. i dont know why some reviewer here said that it is not clock at 700 but mine sure is. verified it with atitool.

Cons: gets too hot..idle at 52c and when playing games like COD4 it reaches up in the 80c to 85c. sometimes even higher if room temperature is pretty warm.

Other Thoughts: qx9650 cpu overclocked to 4gigahertz, 2x2gig g.skill ddr2 1000, this graphic card not doing sli yet, gigabyte 3d galaxy II liquid cooler, hiper 880watt psu, wd 500gig hard drive, ageia phyx pci card.

5 out of 5 eggsGeForce 8800 GTS

Pros: Outstanding card. Play all my games at highest level. Ran a benchmark in World in Conflict with settings maxed and pulled a 30FPS average. Additionally, a Quad Core Duo helped it along the way.

Cons: HUGE, make sure you can fit it into your case.

Gets a little warm too, make sure you have good cooling.

Other Thoughts: None

3 out of 5 eggsConfused

Pros: High clock speeds

Cons: Not running at 700 core as advertised?

Other Thoughts: So this card does not run @ 700 core as it states on this site?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card Under-rated

Pros: Solid card, lots of power, plenty of room to overclock well above system recommended specs.

Cons: The card is missing a program from Gigabyte "V-Tuner3" that is supposed to make it run at the advertized 700mhz core clock speed, but it really runs at 650 like all the other companies. Gigabytes web-site is very slock and in plain fact SUCKS, but they say you can get the program on there site somewhere, but its so slow - dont bother, try ntune to over clock it to easily well above 700. Try 740 you will be impressed.

Other Thoughts: The fact that Gigabyte lies about the cards speed is really not the cards fault itself per say, but I would trust EVGA for the rest of my card purchases especially the fact that they now have a real "SSC 740" 8800GTS 512 that if like all other EVGA cards actually runs at that speed right out of the box with no additionall programs or drivers. PS: All these cards from EVGA, Gigabyte, XFX, etc are all made in the same place FOXCONN.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, well built, idle at 40c no aftermarket cooling, stable, quiet. This card handles all my games, including Crysis, without complaint.

Cons: This board actually comes in at reference speeds (650mhz core 1940mhz ddr3 1625 shader clock) It is not factory overclocked as the specs say, gigabyte only has 1 8800gts 512mb board on the market, and this is it.

Other Thoughts: Even though this board is not factory overclocked, there is alot of headroom to do it yourself, its a quality manufacture. Never once had it over 65c even under full load.

5 out of 5 eggsFaster, cooler, quieter

Pros: Needed my 8800 GTS (640 meg)in another computer and replaced it with this 8800 GTS 512 G92 model. It is quieter and runs cooler than the 8800GTS 640. It also scores Futeremark 06 at 12,500 vs 9,500 on the exact same system.

Cons: It is rather large, but no larger than the 8800 GTS 640 Meg version.

Other Thoughts: It really seems to pump out less heat. I do feel you could SLI two of these cards without aftermarket cooling solutions as long as you have a large well ventilated case. Particulars: MSI 650i P6N SLI Mobo; Mushkin 2x 1 gig fast sticks (996523) OC to 900 MHz; Conroe E6420 OC to 3.0 GHz on factory cooling; PC Power and Cooling PSU 610 Watt; Enermax Uber Case. Solid, stable, moderately quiet. Win XP Home...

5 out of 5 eggsbeware of the WHQL 64 bit driver for vista

Pros: It's an awesome card, go read reviews for it elsewhere.

There is another version of the g92 card from gigabyte with a Zalmann cooler - this card is exactly what's shown in the photos here at newegg.

Cons: Windows Vista 64bit Ultimate - the official drivers from nVidia produced a fatal error during install. It appears they messed up the driver package and put in a 32 bit uninstaller into the 64 bit driver package which causes it to abort on itself. This is for forceware 163.75 which is the driver you'll get from their website. Older stable forceware releases do not support this gfx card.

The beta drivers do though, they install w/o a hitch and I've not had any crashes though I've not been gaming at all yet.

Other Thoughts: This card comes bundled with neverwinter nights - might be a pro for some.

5 out of 5 eggsNice solid card

Pros: Good performance.
Actually helped my system run cooler.
Quiet.

Cons: The thickness of the cooling solution makes it a solid black brick the length of the entire card. Although I could physically fit two of these on my ASUS P5WDG-WS, I think the air intake of the card on slot one would be obstructed.
It extends about an inch or two longer than my old 7900GT.
