5 out of 5 eggsBest of it's generation, and still going

Pros: Can run majority of game. Modern titles on mid to lower settings. Could run Crysis.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: This was my first build GPU and it ruled. It can still run most new titles but not at 1080 60FPS with high settings. To this day it is still running. I gave it to my nephew for his first PC build. Only reason I gave it away was to upgrade to GTX 770 4GB.

5 out of 5 eggs8 years of Fun

Pros: It has been 8 years and it still going strong. I can still play most every game on high settings. Now i'm getting ready to upgrade to the 980 superclocked, and i expect another 8 years.

Cons: Buying two was a waste, i ended up only ever needing one.

5 out of 5 eggsStill relevant 6 years later

Pros: Still plays modern games with decent settings, 6 years later.

Cons: It finally died earlier this year. RMA'd using EVGA's lifetime warranty, and the replacement 8800GTX had the same issue, which makes me wary that something else is the problem, but since the issue I experience occurs during POST, and my other graphics card works fine, the problem must be with the video card.

Other Thoughts: 6 years later, EVGA still honors the warranty. I was concerned that EVGA would send me some bargain video card that was "newer" and call it "equivalent" but they sent me the same video card. When that card was dead, they are now sending me a GTX 275 SC. Other than spending about $30 in RMA shipping charges, I'm quite happy with EVGA's quick service and their honoring of the lifetime warranty. Best part is, EVGA will still honor the original lifetime warranty on the replacement card. I originally paid over 500 doll hairs for this card, and it has been worth every single penny. EVGA FTW!

4 out of 5 eggsRIP

Pros: Insanely powerful card. This card has been in my desktop for years and it still performs amazingly. Even now, in 2013, I can only think of maybe 2 games I've played that have been an issue for this card. Mostly everything else - mid to high settings still. I was playing Bioshock Infinite on it just last month - smooth as can be.

Cons: The 8800 GTX seems to have a history of over-heating problems. If you look it up, a lot of people complain about their card cooking and becoming defective over time. In my rig, it was idling at 70c and powering games at high 80s. I had occasional video crashes over my ownership of the card but nothing has killed it yet.

Other Thoughts: I only removed this card last week because I thought it was finally dead, but after receiving a 295, I found out it was actually my motherboard, so my 8800 is still in working order.

Could probably take a bullet and still play Battlefield 3.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: I purchased this card around Nov. 2006 and I am still using it right now. At the time I purchased it, it was around $650, but I knew it would last, eVGA makes good cards. It still works, although by now it is a bit outdated. Can still play these games at mid-high setting: BFBC2, WoW, L4D2, MW2, Borderlands, etc.

Cons: It is a big card.

Other Thoughts: It lasted me over 5 years and is still working great. It is almost time for replacement, but this card will continue working in my spare computer.

5 out of 5 eggsok product

Pros: great card have had it since it came out and still kicks bu77 in new games.

Cons: stopped working after 4 years and unfortunately I didn't register for warranty because they extended it to lifetime.

Other Thoughts: I put it in the oven for 10 mins and it reflows the solder. The card works for 4-6 months then fails again. REad the forums if you have problems with your 8800GTX
