5 out of 5 eggsfinally a great card

Pros: finally a card that keeps up with the latest games without a single frame drop wow,Its finally here!Ive been frustrated in the past because ide upgrade and still get low frame rates...but it seems with this card it just deosnt let u down.i also have a 7800 gs and although a diferrent class card i can see that one struggling more.i have both machines backed by an 3700+ and 2 gigs gskill ram and this card is great!flawless in fact.Ill be keeping this until dx10 arrives im sure.

Cons: the one and only flaw is the 256 megs of ram but that was just because of ghost recon needing 512 meg for high textures.but the game is bunk anyways so its cool

Other Thoughts: dont see any reason to do sli..im sorry but I just dont,I think its a waste to have 2 of these in sli,any other card no but not this one yet.my 2 cents peace

5 out of 5 eggsCool AND Quiet AND Fast

Pros: Starting with the important things, it is very quiet, the chipset fan on the A**S motherboard, and the DVDROM are both louder. The GPU idles at about 37C. It is has a huge performance improvement over my previous 5600 GPU. Serious Sam II, which came with this card, is quite playable; the previous card did the slide-show thing. The vga tuner thinks the "optimized" settings are 525 2D, 640 3D, 835 Mem. Stock settings are 525 2D, 525 3D, 720 Mem.

Cons: The software the comes with the card, the Gigabyte VGA utility has some capability, but is a work in progress. The updater will tell you an update is available, then crash while trying to update! The VGA tuner app works, but the lock, load, save functions do not work consistently.

Other Thoughts: Software utility support from Gigabyte appears to be an "afterthought", very low priority.
This machine is A64 4000+, 1GB, 1 PATA HD, 1 PATA DVDROM; a medium high machine. The gaming performance is pretty good.
Newegg & UPS did an excellent job fulfilling the order.

2 out of 5 eggsNot pleased

Pros: Relatively quiet and cool. Seems to stay under 60c

Cons: Lots of graphical glitches when playing WoW. Tried the 84.x and 91.x drivers. Underclocking it as much as I could with their VTuner utility helped a little.

Other Thoughts: Perhaps it is my ps. But I would assume a 450w ps should be sufficient to drive this, (2) hard drives and a Athlon64 3500?

5 out of 5 eggsBest 7900gt for the money IMHO

Pros: I don't know why I am the first one to try out this card. This is the only card that has the Zalman heatsink preinstalled so you wont have to void your warranty. Runs very cool and quiet for a GPU. Don't be fooled by the advertised clock speed. I have mine at 610Mhz core clock with perfect stability and no artifacts for over a week now. This gets me an extra 2,000 3dmarks in '06 from the stock settings. The OC software provided with the card is good and keeps you from overheating as it will slow the card back down if you get over a certain temperature threshold.

Cons: The memory however does not OC at all. Even small overclocks will cause instability. However, I think the core clock has a much more significant impact on performance than the memory clock. Also, the drivers that came with the card are buggy. You must download the latest drivers from gigabyte's website, (not nvidia's site if you want to oc). Then I had to manually explore the driver CD and install the OC software because the autorun installer gives an error message. After you navigate that little software glitch this is a real nice piece of hardware.

Other Thoughts: Another plus or minus depending on your situation is that this card uses a regular 4-pin molex connector so you don't have to spend the extra money on an "SLI certified" power supply with the pci-x power connectors (6-pin).

5 out of 5 eggsVery quick

Pros: I also own systems equipped with Geforce 6800 and Geforce 7800GS cards and all I can say is that this thing is very, very quick by comparison. Add in the fact that the included Zalman fan is whisper quiet and you've got a winner.

Cons: None.
