4 out of 5 eggsEight Years a Fave

Pros: This card was installed in my last rebuild in 2008. I finally had to replace it (interim GeForce 210 until i build another PC). Graphically, we are mostly browser people, but my son ran WOW for a while without too many complaints.

Cons: Some reviews note the fan didn't sit correctly in the case for the first few months, but once I figured out the problem, never heard from it again.

Other Thoughts: While I didn't ask for a RMA (I mean seriously, who would do that after eight solid years of use), it's nice to know the EVGA warranty was there in case I had any real issues.

5 out of 5 eggsEarly buyer, and this card is still going strong!

Pros: This card has held up incredibly well. And I logged into Newegg today just to rave about this card after realizing how long I have had it. I was an early buyer when these cards came out. I have upgraded all of the other components in my build several times over the years, monitors and OS too, but have never had a need to upgrade this card. It has performed consistently well with games, HD movies and videos, photoshopping, and all of the other OS tasks I throw at it. The fan always stays on its lower speeds (idle, I think), and it only spins up at boot up and when I'm testing the system. Sure, it won't run new PC games at their highest settings, but I would never expect that of a graphics card that is pushing 8 years old now. I haven't been especially good about keeping dust from accumulating in the case either, and it hasn't bothered this card.

Cons: I don't like the initial fan test that the card runs at every boot up. It spins the small on-board fan from idle to full speed, then back down. It isn't mis-performing, but it is just a bit of a complaint about the whoosh noise it generates briefly at startup.

Other Thoughts: Would definitely recommend this product to folks looking to do anything and everything except run brand-new PC games at their highest settings. Running in a Windows 10 environment, watching movies, photoshopping and running MS Office, this card is just dandy! When I eventually do upgrade, it will be with an EVGA card built upon the GeForce chipset.

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:


I am sorry to hear about this experience. Please contact me directly at 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

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.
