Nvidia's "7" family of graphic cards offers the right solution no matter what your needs. The 7800GT is designed for the gamer who wants exceptional performance while still remaining affordable. The 7800 fully supports Microsoft's DirectX 9.0 protocols and beyond.

The built-in CineFX 4.0 Engine and UltraShadow II technology are accompanied by its support for other advanced features which let the 7800 deliver cinema-quality graphics. This card supports Scalable Link Interface (SLI), has dual DVI to maximize the display, and is OpenGL 2.0 compliant – the standard for high performance graphics. The 7800 pushes graphic data via 20 pixel pipelines courtesy of 256MB of on-board 256-bit double-pumping GDDR3 memory running at 1100MHz.

The 7800 delivers a max resolution of 2560 x 1600 and the video can be output via the onboard S-Video or HDTV connections. Its integrated dual 400MHz RAMDACs allow you to connect to connect a pair of displays to speed up your workflow – or spread out your gameplay. Its 460MHz core clock keeps things humming along – shouldering the load of video processing so your CPU doesn't have to. The onboard fan helps with airflow within the case while cooling the card.

5 out of 5 eggsStill going....

Pros: Bought this thing a few years back when it came out and it's still going strong. I just built a new system and transferred this card to my new case. Why upgrade yet when I can save money and use a perfectly good card? The drives were a breeze to install and it has proven itself in many glorious battles in Call of Duty. Wouldn't go to war without it...

Cons: None that I can think of- maybe getting booted out of a game because I was running too many conflicting programs at once, but is that the card or the user's fault?

Other Thoughts: It was the first card I ever removed and reinstalled. It has taken a real performance test as-well-as a physical beating from my rookie first time building experience and has yet to fail me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great Card. Has run almost all my games on high, Crysis on medium even. For the last 3 + years it has played everything I have thrown at it.

Cons: None!!

Other Thoughts: Even though this card is not being produced anymore I felt the need to write a second review 3 +years later. Had some artifacting earlier but it was a simple fix - newer drivers were needed. I am very happy with this card EVGA is a great company to buy from hence the review again

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great Card. great deal for the money. Runs all online apps flawlessly, can play HD content very well, and can run even the newest of games (not at full quality mind you)

Cons: Runs kinda hot. about 33C idle, 39C on games.

Other Thoughts: Card lasted me 3 years before i decided to upgrade. card is still working great with no problems. running on a E6700 Asus P5nsli, X-FI, 2gigs ram. can play DOOM 3 on highest resolutions great, Oblivion on really high settings, and Crysis on medium settings (frame rate can get kinda low)

2 out of 5 eggsNOT FOR VISTA!

Pros: Very nice card. Runs cool, and runs most of my games at highest vid settings (mostly RTS games, War3, Supreme Commander etc).

Cons: TERRIBLE DRIVERS FOR VISTA! This card worked great until I upgraded to windows Vista Business. Blue screens of death every 20 minutes or so, even when not using vid heavy apps. Google nVidia 7800 drivers, and you'll see that it isn't an uncommon problem.

Other Thoughts: If you have XP, this card is great. I replaced it with an ATI HD3650, which I've found to be far superior. One major complaint I had with the 7800 is I had to restart my comp to make it output to my HD projector.

5 out of 5 eggsStill Going

Pros: Still running one of these in my 939 rig. Still kicking even in new games, Crysis being the only one I can only run at low, amazing performance then and competent now.

Cons: Outdated of course, like all past gen cards

Other Thoughts: Great card if you dont play intensive games like Crysis, one of these can still get you through. Espeacially if your still on and older platform like my 939

5 out of 5 eggsFeels like a good friend

Pros: I got this card back before the 8 series came out when the 7900s were all the rage. It was my first time building a computer and I basically had a friend pick out everything for me. Of everything he picked, this card was the best choice. It served me through solid gaming up until this year [You can play Crysis on lowest settings] and has survived more than most components. There was an accident in my house, my computer fell off the desk, the motherboard was cracked. I built a new rig, tried to see if this card was still working, and it was! For an older card, this is perfect. Great if you're building for someone who doesn't do any current gaming but still wants HD video.

Cons: Dated. This is no longer a high end card.

Other Thoughts: I'm building a budget computer for a friend's dad for 400 dollars just to show him that computers don't have to be super expensive to be good and I'm using my old 7800GT for that. He's going to love it.

4 out of 5 eggsGood price, Lots of Connectors!

Pros: The card was very fast when I bought it almost 1.5 years ago. Newer games are harder and harder to play at high resolutions and with AA/AF enabled. It worked great in all the games I played, but WoW didn't want to display some things, and flickered a bit on some textures. Video card drivers & Direct X were up to date.

I love the Component out, Svideo out, Composite out, Composite in and SVideo in. Overclocked from the factory (which could account for some of the problems I've been having).

Cons: No DX10 support (Time to get an 8 series or higher)
Starting to get slow with newer games (Crysis, TF2, HL2, UT3, BioShock, etc).

Other Thoughts: I recently put this card in my Media PC (Connected to my 1080i 65" CRT Rear Projection TV) and upgraded my gaming PC with a $200 shipped used 8800GT 512 with an aftermarket Artic cooler from that one auction site I can't name here.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT buy from EVGA

Pros: Card worked perfectly for more than a year.

Cons: Dead. All of EVGA's cards end up dying and their warranties never cover it. The timeline of death goes like this:

1. First there are a few artifacts.
2. There are a lot of artifacts.
3. Games that ran at 120 fps run at 20.
4. There are artifacts on the desktop.
5. Games don't work and crash the computer.
6. Now I can't do anything and even videos lag.


Other Thoughts: I actually have a 7900gt, but it isn't on newegg anymore so this is close enough.

5 out of 5 eggsALMOST 3 YEARS

Pros: I baught the AOpen version of this vidio card almost 3 years ago whenever the 7 series was just coming out. This card was amazing then. and is still amazing now! Only takes up one slot.

Cons: Kinda big.

Other Thoughts: I checked the price of this card a year after i baught it, and it actually went up! Its out dated now... but if you have one sitting around you might want to think about framing it and hanging it on the wall instead of retiring it outright.

5 out of 5 eggsamazing

Pros: I've had this card since I built my PC back in 2005. It still runs like the day I got it. With the release of games like COD4 and Crisis, it's just now getting to the point that I can't play games with maximum graphics settings. 3 years is an amazing lifetime to handle max graphics in the video card industry.

Cons: Getting old and still a pretty high price. Spend the extra $100 and get the 8800GT and be good for the next 3-4 years.
