1 out of 5 eggsWatch out for EVGA

Pros: I was pleased with it when I first got it, worked like what I thought was fine. Just very pleased all around and no issues at all. My rating is a result of EVGA and the product itself. Starting getting artifacts on the on

Cons: Card worked fine but I got ripped off. I F'd up and didn't buy from NewEgg which has turned into a big mistake on my part. I bought somewhere else...someone pulled a switch-a-roo and I got this recertified card in a new box. I tossed out my receipt and after contacting EVGA for replacement...was denied.

Other Thoughts: Denied because they said my card didn't come from where I said I bought it and I didn't have a receipt. KEEP YOUR RECEIPT OR BUY IT HERE. EVGA won't even offer to repair/replace at my does that hit you? Read their forums also...lots of problems with their mobo's as well. Just because of this card I won't ever buy another EVGA product unless they offer some real help on this card. They don't tell you that you don't get a FULL warranty on a recertified card either...which is what this card is.

5 out of 5 eggswoo hoo

Pros: I've had this video card for 2 years, and it's still quite impressive. It was always capable of playing games (nothing new, of course) at high settings. Half-Life 2, F.E.A.R, WoW. EVGA tech support is some of the best I've encountered. It's not too big, and the fan is very nice, just be sure to dust it.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: If you have an old computer that needs a videocard upgrade, this is a good pick.

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: I upgraded to this card from a fx5200 and i must say the improvement was awsome the fan is pretty quiet runs cool not the most powerful card but will run DOOM 3 with 30+ fps.

Cons: the only problem i had is the drivers were slightly faulty i had that nv4 error and it would crash often but with a little tweaking i fixed it and it big too.

5 out of 5 eggsThe former king

Pros: I bought the 6800 after my last setup died. It replaced a Ti4600 which was the Nvidia king a LONG time ago. It was on sale and I couldn't pass up the opportunity. The EVGA version worked perfectly from the get go - meanwhile I had a popular brand motherboard AND videocard BOTH die on me... I'm gonna get another EVGA card because of this. If you can afford the 6800, you can afford a 8600 just fyi.

Cons: It's 2 generations old at this point, but if you're in it for a 6 series, this would be it. An 8600 or 9600 would be more cost effective today. Doesn't detract from the card, but it is old.

Other Thoughts: Old setup: ECS 755 MB (replaced a dead popular brand), EVGA GeForce 6800 (replaced a dead popular brand), Athlon 64 3000+, Kingston 1 gig DDR3200, WD 250 gig HDD, Offbrand DVD+-RW, Apevia X-Navigator case w/ 500 W PSU (love this case)

5 out of 5 eggsWonderful Card

Pros: This card has ran for me for 2 years and it runs very good for it's time. It can actually keep up pretty good even today in the generation of games that pop out. I wouldn't recommend this card now as it's very outdated but it was a wonderful card

Cons: It's very old now, don't bother getting it anymore, it's reached it's time.

5 out of 5 eggsHas been great

Pros: This card has been fantastic. Ive had it for just around 2.5 years and has held up against pretty much everything, even oblivion on med-high settings.

Cons: Gets hot...really hot, but then again, if youre buying it now youre probably not going to run it that hard.

Other Thoughts: Im just about getting ready to retire mine and buy an 8800GT

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I've had this card for about a year and a half. I'm in love with it. Picked it up barely used from a friend for 30$ and never failed me once. Plays C&C3 at almost MAX graphics. Smooth gaming, great for a budget buy.

Cons: Other than being outdated: NONE

Other Thoughts: If you find one laying around, get it. It would make a great card for an "older" system, that can still keep up with the others.

Haven't tried it on Crysis yet, that might be it's only real competitor.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for its time

Pros: Great card bought it off newegg quite sometime ago and is still serving its duty in the wifes pc now.

Cons: Far outdated now

Other Thoughts: This card is great even now if you can find one for older games. Running fine in wifes pc off an emachine 300 watt psu, plays games like guildwars with very good frames at 1280/1024 or lower, and is a massive overclocker.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat For It's Time

Pros: At it's time, it ran every game we threw at it at max settings with no problems. It was fast, it ran cool, and took a lot of abuse.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: A top card at the time I bought it. Now 2 and a half years later it has been surpassed by the other cards, but still ran the newer games at decent settings.
