1 out of 5 eggsNo Adapter, no manual, no tape

Pros: Solid card with great specs, a good name, and an unbeatable price.. hell I bought it, didn't I?

Cons: As numerous other people have stated, the box came in perfect condition (imagine that, a UPS package with no damage).. however there was no security tape at all, and the box did NOT contain the power supply adapter, or the manual. Thus rendering the card unusable until I either call eVGA or buy an adapter.

Other Thoughts: Seems like if you buy this card and want to be able to use it right out of the box, you better buy an extra adapter beforehand.

4 out of 5 eggsGREAT CARD

Pros: Great card. OC's fine. Even stock is great. Giving 1 point lower (Check other thoughts, due to service)

Cons: Fan keeps the GPU pretty hot and it's loud. Unless your case is REALLY well ventilated, I suggest you get a Arctic Cooling device.

Other Thoughts: Box came half way opened and looked crunched. Was missing the Power cable/manual/DVI-VGA adapter. I didn't really need the power cable, but what Gives, NewEgg? Been a loyal customer for as long as I can remember.

BE AWARE! Site says RETAIL, but eVGA says serials that end with TX are OEM!

5 out of 5 eggsHad it since September works fine

Pros: Works great for the price you pay. My package came with everything and was nicely packaged. then again, i got mine back in september. I'm able to run Battlefield 2 with 16x Anisotropic Filtering and 8x Antialiasing and with all the visual settings on high except textures, which is set to medium.

Cons: Can't speak for the recent problems Evga has had with these graphics cards. They must be slacking off. Recent customers claim to be receiving poorly packaged products with missing accessories that were promised with the graphics card. The customers could very well be right. My experience has been positive but you might want to take these reviews into consideration before making an investment with this company. There are other companies that offer the same graphics card with a higher standard of quality than Evga

Other Thoughts: Works with everything I play. Not a hardcore gamer but I know a lot about hardware. BTW, you DO need the power cable that comes (or should come) with it. When I tested the card without the power cable, textures went completely out of whack in Battlefield 2. Like I said before, I cannot say whether the most recent batch of graphics cards has been compromised in any fashion. If you encounter a defective or utterly unacceptable product, I suggest you take it up with Newegg and/or Evga to resolve the issue.

3 out of 5 eggsno how to book or power adapter

Pros: no idea i cannot use the video card yet

Cons: ther is no manual or power adapter so i had to call EVGA to get them. seems EVGA blaming newegg on poor handling of this product but seems to me that EVGA was to cheap to tape the ends closed like everyone else does. Now I have to wait 3 days for a new power adapter and manual. also the videocards anti-static bag was not taped either. my best guess is the products inside my box hit the floor at least once.

Other Thoughts: I'm just not really happy about this. Sure they are sending me a new powersupply adapter and stuff but for spending this much money on a product and thinking the stuff hit the floor makes me think I'm going to have problems down the road. I don't like problems. tape is cheap.
