5 out of 5 eggsSuper Stable

Pros: I have had this card for OVER a year, running 24/7. From day 1 I have had it overclocked to 720/1875/1025 using Riva Tuner. The card idles @ 36C, and under full load @ 52C. My room temp is 72F. I can run every game at 16AA/16AF, high quality & w/ supersampling 1680X1050. This is the best card that I have EVER purchased! Can't wait to Sli this badboy!

Cons: I only wished that I would have been more patient, prices have come down soooo much. Also, wish that it came w/ a better game, or no game & lower price.

Other Thoughts: My current system: Antec 900, Asus A8N32-SLi Deluxe, FX60 (running @ 2.98Ghz; idle 32C / load 46C), 2Gb G.Skill PC3200 (running @ PC3500), OCZ Gamestream 700w PSU, CoolerMaster Hyper6 heatsink, 2X Seagate 320Gb RAID0 & this rockin card!

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful Card!

Pros: Price is right, and it runs AoC and WoW without a hitch. I haven't noticed too much noise from it. Installation was easy.

Cons: Drivers on CD were out of date when I got the card, but it was an easy fix.

4 out of 5 eggsNice card, but loud fan

Pros: -Nice card, runs fast at extremely low price.
-Overclocks nicely with included program.

Cons: -Fixed speed loud fan, really annoying.

Other Thoughts: -The fan can be fixed though by connecting the 2 pin plug into the 3 pins one on the motherboard. Then its speed can be changed in the bios or by using SpeedFan.

4 out of 5 eggsnoisy

Pros: Great Card for the price. Especially with a rebate. Can play crysis very high at 1360x768 res. (only one part had a major slowdown).

Cons: It upset me off that the fan that came with the cooler isn't a variable speed fan. Meaning that it's stuck on at tornado speed 24/7. It was so loud that the video card was noisier than 3x 120mm fans.

Other Thoughts: After i couldn't sleep because the fan was too loud, i ripped it off, hot glue gunned on a 90mm fan and attached that to a fan controller (didn't feel like splicing the given fan). Now it can be whisper silent, or keep my card at a constant 36-40*

5 out of 5 eggsWonderfully Great!

Pros: The overclocking software for this thing is great!! plays everything I throw at it, even Crysis with DX10. I always max out the settings in every game I play, and I always choose 1280x800. It's not the native resolution of my lcd, but it scales it right. This card is something else

Cons: The price keeps falling! hehe

Other Thoughts: It's a powerful card that's getting cheaper. I'm gonna buy a second one for SLI when they go on clearance in the next 6 months

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: It's an 8800GT, and review sites will tell you exactly how 8800GT's perform at stock - so I'll just say, it's plenty fast for the money and has performed flawlessly at everything.
Not only do you get an 8800GT, but you get gigabyte to overclock it and strap on a Zalman cooler for you. That's a plus. It cools much better - maximum core temp is 58C under full load for two hours @ 700mhz (default for this card).
Gigabyte also re-designed nVidia's reference card layout to make the card shorter - it is the same length as my old 6600GT, for reference.

Cons: It's a little pricey - not too much, because remember you get a custom layout, high quality components, and a Zalman cooler. But still, a little on the expensive side. But if you can get it with a rebate as I did (newegg rocks, of course), then you're all set.
Also, the card does not seem to be able to report its fan RPM - the only thing that comes back is the percentage of maximum speed, which I can live with.

Other Thoughts: Always use the latest drivers straight from nvidia, not the disk. Gigabyte's GamerHUD software allows you to up the voltage of the card from the default 1.15 to 1.20, which is cool if you're case is well cooled and you want some extra speed without having to mod anything.
YOU CAN ADJUST THE FAN SPEED. Adjusting the "Fan Duty Cycle %" in nvidia drivers or *everyone's favorite 3rd party nvidia tuner* changes the speed of the fan just fine. I have mine at 80% and the noise is minimal.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: A great performing overclocked 8800GT card with bundled game.

Cons: Though the heatsink/fan keeps the card cool, its quite loud at default setting. You'd think that it would automatically adjust fan speed depending on temperature but that was not the case with me. I also couldnt get a software tuner app to adjust fan speeds so ended up using a zalmon fan controller to manually slow down the speed.

Other Thoughts: I am not sure, but I believe that there may be a later revision of this card that auto adjusts fan speed for a quieter experience. I like the performance of the card so i'm keeping mine, but silent PC enthusiasts beware that this card may be louder than you expect! It would be nice if the card came with bundled software fan controller.
