The series features a unified DirectX 10 Shader Model 4.0 & Open GL 2.0 architecture for stunning 3-Dgraphics textures. With 10-bit per channel output, the 8 series produces higher fidelity color and separation. In addition, the cards support SLI and NVIDIA's PureVideo HD.

The 8800GT delivers blistering video and graphic performance. Its 754 million transistors can handle anything your games throw at it – and with reduced energy requirements.

The 600MHz core clock keeps everything moving and the 400MHz RAMDAC and twin dual-linked DVI let you output to multiple and large monitors. Video can also be streamed via the HDTV or S-Video outputs for greater flexibility. The 8800GT hits the mark for price while delivering high-end graphic performance.

5 out of 5 eggsIt's still kicking!

Pros: I have had this card for 3+ years in constant use in my desktop. It was a part of my first build, and was passed down on to me for free by a cousin.

For a 7 year old card, I must say that I am impressed. It doesn't run everything on max, but it runs everything I throw at it (in 2014 keep in mind) at medium-high settings. I have never had a problem with it, except you couldn't play higher graphics demanding games with the best fps or settings. But at it's age, it does a better job than I could ask it to. Back in 2007, it was one of the best cards out there, and it is just now reaching the end of its time. That is what you call a quality product.

It still runs, even now, and I will continue to run it till it dies.

Cons: None. None at all.

Other Thoughts: I am going to upgrade to a MSI Dominator-893 soon, and I came to see what the reviews on my current GPU were. I thought it would be apt to leave a review for this warrior of a card, as I have had it close to 4 years now.

4 out of 5 eggsFive years later, still going strong!

Pros: After five years of owning this card, it still plays new titles at lower-mid settings. This is one of Nvidia's jewels.

Cons: The stock cooler doesn't blow, and that's a problem. Literally the only downside with this card is you have to purchase an aftermarket cooler. I went fan-less and never looked back.

2 out of 5 eggsSad Replacements

Pros: While the card worked it handled every game I wanted to play.

Cons: A little over 2 years the card burnt out. I had registered so getting an RMA wasn't a problem. After the initial card I had to replace it another 2 or 3 times in about 5 months. Down time of at least a week and ten dollars to ship each time, I decided to cut my losses and look elsewhere.

Other Thoughts: Was very happy with card while it worked but only getting a month or two from the replacements got old quick.

Manufacturer Response:

Hello,

I am sorry to hear about this experience. Please contact me directly at bbrunson@evga.com so i can work with you on this matter.

Thank you,
Brandon B

5 out of 5 eggs4 years later, dead, RMA'd!

Pros: Its an 88gt...if you dont know the pros by now you arent that big in the PC world, so here they are

-Will run (almost) every game released before this year at max settings
-Is a monster
-BEST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK IN GFX HISTORY!

There never was, and probably will not be, another card like this. I got this card because i KNEW it would last years, and it did.

Titles from this year are finally making the 88GT show its age: finally skyrim, first game i've had to turn NOT to max in ages, it plays at high/med settings

My card finally died this year, after nearly 4 years of hardcore use, overclocking, you name it, i did it. And EVGA is replacing it. Lifetime warranty, they stand behind it

Cons: None? I honestly have had this card for near on half a decade and have not found one negative about it in all this time. Is it bad that it runs EVERY GAME for the past 4 years at max settings? Is it bad that I am too spoiled now and used to this in a card?

Honestly the only negative is the stock cooler (for whatever reason, i still haven't replaced it): it is 1 slot, so it does save space, but also doesn't vent heat as well. Also gets LOUD when the fans turned up high; i dont mean loud as in rock concert, but a loud, high pitched whirring type noise.

I guess the con is that it died, after 4 years, on Xmas morning? Is that really a con, 4 years of use and the card dies, or is that a pro, that the card lasts 4 years?

Other Thoughts: I dont see why everyones complaining about registering for the warranty. "oh sneaky trick by evga", what is in ANY WAY sneaky about this? IT IS WRITTEN ALL OVER THE BOX, THE SITE, EVERYWHERE you might come across, it lets you know.

Even installing everything for the card, it reminds you: Don't forget to register your product to activate your lifetime warranty!

If you cant take the 10 seconds to register the 300$ piece of hardware you just purchased, and give them your email, to ensure that it'll be protected till YOU (not the card) decide to get rid of it, you kinda deserve it.

Spam or not, I've got a lifetime warranty, and EVGA STANDS BY IT! EVGA is sending me a replacement card this coming weeks (because of holidays).

EVGA HONORS THEIR WARRANTY, IF YOU HOLD UP YOUR END OF THE BARGAIN! Totally worth it, i'm getting a new 8800GT 4 years later, all because i took the 30 seconds to register the thing.

REGISTER PARTS FOR WARRANTIES! Its NOT only evga that asks t

5 out of 5 eggslasted 3 years

Pros: Scooped this card up as part of a massive upgrade back in grad school. Used it to play the tar out of Left 4 Dead, both Mass Effects, Fallout 3, and Arkham Asylum, and it was gorgeous, though could never play at the highest resolutions. Was working nicely on Dead Island up until it finally burnt out watching a DVD.

Cons: Couldn't really overclock it, the temp was at upper limits as it was. Also the fan was crazy noisy, and would do strange start-ups and stops a year back. Some of the newest games (Dead Island) had mediocre frame rates

Other Thoughts: My gawrsh, 3 years of use out of what was a mid-level card in 2008/2009, I couldn't be happier. It's death was bittersweet, now I can upgrade!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Ran everything I threw at it. Cheap card. Been using it since it came out!

Cons: Ran a little hot in my case. I switched to a Zalman cooler that helped a lot.

Other Thoughts: Very happy with the purchase.

2 out of 5 eggsLimited time offer [Updated]

Pros: I found some vids online about how to "bake" these cards in order to reflow the solder. This worked and now both cards are working and I am up and running in SLI mode again. So if anyone else is caught in the same bind as I was (dead cards and no warranty), this may be an option to try before junking the cards and replacing them.

Cons: Requires some expertise in power electronics heatsink assembly and dis-assembly.

Other Thoughts: Also upgraded the card BIOS to fix the fan issue. GPU runs cooler and games run at higher FPS than before the bake and rebuild.

5 out of 5 eggsawesome card

Pros: I bought this card over 3 years ago and its still kicking today. Has ran everything I could throw at it. Still runs BFBC2 with almost everything set to high. Can't say enough about it.

Cons: The only thing is wasnt free. That and it is starting show some quarks like it might be at the end of it life. But i got 3 years out of it so not much of a con there.

Other Thoughts: I just ordered a evga gtx560 to be a proper replacement for it. I honestly did not think the card would play the newest games as well as it does. It just kept on going. Gonna kinda miss it.

2 out of 5 eggsLimited time offer

Pros: I had two of these cards in SLI mode which worked very well for almost three years.

Cons: Both cards died within one month of each other. No warranty because of the registration issue described by previous reviews.

Other Thoughts: Also found on EVGA forums that there are known issues with these cards (fan BIOS) yet they will not honor warranty because of the technicality. I would be reluctant to trust EVGA again.
