It’s amazing how much performance persistent engineers can tweak out of video cards these days. While the GeForce 8800GTX cards are eating up the competition, its junior partner ain’t doing so bad, either. EVGA brings us a lively 8800 GT KO model that may demonstrate memory and stream processor figures lower than its big brothers, the 880GTX and Ultra, but performs at frame rates and speeds that belie its lower price.

Boasting NVIDIA SLI technology and certified for Windows Vista, EVGA has provided next-generation Superscalar GPU design, has used NVIDIA’s own unified architecture and GigaThread technology. You get DirectX 10 and Shader Model 4.0 support which enables you to play the most advanced games on the market. Dedicated processing cores and software deliver a vivid picture free of annoying artifacts you get from standard PC-based video solutions.

The built in TV encoder supports HDTV, S-Video and Component video out. HDCP lets you see programming in full HD mode. NVIDIA’s PureVideo brings the technology from high-end video equipment to your computer. EVGA’s 8800GT KO, whether single or doubled, will give more power than you can believe for the price!

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome card

Pros: Awesome card...put it in a new system (EVGA 680i motherboard, soon-to-be-upgraded to a 780i, 2GB RAM, Q6600 Quad-core) and it's blazin' fast.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsWhat a stocking stuffer!

Pros: Unreal card for the price. I actually got the 650MHz version for 289, but it must have sold out just after & now is not even listed, wow they are flying off the shelves, huh. I had a 7900 GS 256MB and it was fine for medium game settings in most stuff, now I can Max out in most everything. Oh, check this out, I installed 3DMark06 just to check before & after. I went from 4950 to 12190....incredible with just that one upgrade (E6420 CPU & 3GB RAM, XP Pro). Came with Enemy Territory QW...can't beat that (already bought Crysis on sale @39)

Cons: Just the availability basically. The new 169.21 Forceware eVGA drivers are supposed to fix the low fan speed bug. I installed RxxxTuner just to be on the safe side.

Other Thoughts: Fast shipping as usual. Less than 5 days to the east coast. Got it the day before Christmas, so the timing was perfect, as was the gift ;)

5 out of 5 eggsWhat an upgrade!

Pros: I upgraded from (yes, begin laughing) a Radeon 9800 PRO 256mb that I've had for over 3 years. There is no real way to make a comparison because of advancements in technology, but this thing is faster then I'd of imagined for the price.

Cons: The card runs HOT HOT HOT, but by grabbing nTune or a similar program you can up the default fan speed (which is lower than 30% of max) to about 66% and still not feel like you have a jet engine in your room, plus it drops about 12º off the core temp.

Other Thoughts: For the price to performance ratio, I couldn't recommend a GTX over this. It is fast, I pull 125fps in COD4 with AA on and graphics almost maxed. All in all this card is amazing for the money.

5 out of 5 eggsbang for the buck

Pros: the pros of this card are apparent currently its in the three hundred range which makes it hands down the best bang for the buck only on average 10% slower than the 8800 gtx for just about half the cost...i dont own i bought a gtx the day they came out but if i where going to buy now i would purchase this card whithout hesitation

Cons: .....what?

Other Thoughts: to the person who asked why his memory was running at like 924 or whatever.....its running at exactly what its supposed to...ddr stants for Double Data Rate...which means if your memory on your card is running at 925 it is effectivly operating at around 1950MHz

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card

Pros: This card handles absolutely everything at 1680x1050 at maximum settings (with the exception of Crysis, of course) and doesn't show any delay in graphics what-so-ever.

Cons: Availability. This card, specifically, comes and goes like the clock ticks.

Other Thoughts: While others may see the price as a problem, I personally don't. You're getting a better card than the more expensive, not to mention inferior, GTS 640MB version, but you're still paying less! The only reason people complain about the price is due to the MSRP on the card. This card compares to the GTX, and has sometimes taken the lead in some benchmarks, but the GTX is a roughly 2x the price of this!

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Great card. Plows through any game I have at max settings on 1650x1080 .. MOH Airborne, COH, etc. on a single core FX57 w/ XP64. Stays relatively cool at ~65c max.

For 3D, works just fine with XSI and Maya.

Cons: nada

Other Thoughts: upgraded from 7800GTX- difference was quite drastic.

5 out of 5 eggsRequires extra tweaking after use

Pros: Price/performance ratio simply cannot be beat, any of the 8800GTs are an exceptional buy that I recommend to all my friends.

Cons: Besides the lack of supply, the single slot cooler will raise the temperatures within the case if there isn't good air ventilation.

Other Thoughts: The BIOS for the 8800GTs, at least for mine, sets the fan speed at 29%, keeping it quiet but does not raise it automatically during intense 3D performance applications; example: games and graphic processing, and will surely overheat the card after prolonged use without manually setting the fan speed with nTune or another overclocking utility. Just my one cent for those looking to get the cards. :]

5 out of 5 eggsSolid.

Pros: The KO edition is the way to go if you dont know/dont want to over clock your card yourself. Dosent run too hot... should be getting around 50-60 C. If you have quality parts and this card you can get a stable 20-35 fps in crysis tweaked out... and mainly 30 fps mostly.

Cons: Jacked up price and avalibilty.

Other Thoughts: 9 inches, Not Loud. Better frames than GTS. Best bet right before the 9800s come.

4 out of 5 eggsMinor Problems

Pros: Outstanding graphics and gives much higher level graphics than my sli 7900gt's together. Great buy considering that even the new 8800gts that is supposed to be better than the GTX is just alittle faster than this card.

Cons: The fan speed is to slow for heavy gaming sessions and it seems like alot of trouble to have to keep turning it up and down in ntune

Other Thoughts: Worth the buy and the extra jump and price

5 out of 5 eggsgreat all around

Pros: Everything. Has held up to everything I have thrown at it. Runs crysis great, any dx9 games on max settings. very quiet with auto fan control. I am very impressed and happy with this card.

Cons: I dont have 2, although at this point I havent slowed the card down enough to justify needing sli. Crysis is kind of jumpy on max settings, but still runs and looks great on high settings.

Other Thoughts: People are complaining about the heat issue -- Card does run hot, but not too hot that it is an issue. My card sticks around 75c. Maybe everyone who has a heat problem just needs to make sure they have enough airflow around card.
