5 out of 5 eggsRunning for 4 years

Pros: This card has been in my machine for 4 years and still runs great.

Cons: Runs Hot and also there was a clear plastic film over the center of the cooling fan which came loose and fell into the fan while my pc was on which made a horrible noise and scared me pretty bad.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid with Good Performance

Pros: -Over two years of service, and still rocking it out.
-Was fast at release
-Still works well with newer games

Cons: -Runs a little hot, but was never a problem.

Other Thoughts: This replaced a 7800(?) that died on me after a year. This card worked very well and has not been retired to my moms computer. It lives a happy, peaceful life rendering web pages, playing back video, fishing, and going to Gordon Lightfoot concerts.

5 out of 5 eggsRuns Awesome!

Pros: This card handled any and every game I through at it. The drivers are a little big, but they work great. If I was building another system I would go with this card without a doubt.

Cons: Runs Hot for a while.

Other Thoughts: Like I said above: This card ran very HOT for the first few days.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked Fine.. for a time

Pros: Works well with nearly any DirectX 9.0c compatible game that I've tried (Crysis, World of Warcraft, Half-Life 2, Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike: Source, etc.)

Cons: - Consistent 100% fan speed on nearly any game after a few months
- Runs fairly hot even though regular use (i.e. "idle")

Other Thoughts: After about a year, the card itself started giving out. Randomly the video of any game being ran (World of Warcraft, Heroes of Newerth, Starcraft II, etc.) crashes and after some effort testing parts, it came down to the card. The display itself doesn't fragment but rather nearly crashes completely. It only affects the game being displayed as in I'm able to minimize and end-process the game and the display itself works fine otherwise, but anytime I attempt to run another game, the video stays "crashed" and forces me to reboot the PC to "reset" the crashed video. After changing drivers to nearly any build possible, I've come to the conclusion it's either a damaged or defective card.

Since I hadn't registered the card with EVGA originally (thinking I had a one year warranty not knowing you had to register for the one year), I didn't have any support from EVGA for the card after I believe a 30-day period.

I personally will never purchase an EVGA card again because of this hassle

Manufacturer Response:

Hi,

Please contact me directly at jacobf@evga.com so I can offer a resolution. Please reference your Newegg post when the email is sent.

Thanks,
Jacob

5 out of 5 eggsEVGA 9800GT is a great card

Pros: Bought my 9800 GT 10-28-08 and it's still gives all it can. Under a P4 HT 3Ghz, COD4 would run 80 FPS on a good day and I was happy. Now a 930 on a P6X58D I get 260 FPS, it swings but it's nice. Ping rate has been my problem.

I've always kept the card clean, and maintained good air flow.

Cons: It does run hot, even now I have it in a HAF-922 case where two fans are blowing a total of 158 CFM air flow directly on the card yet it still sits at 70+ during a game.
I alway keep it's fan at 100%, it's whisper quite.

I was glad to read Jacob, the EVGA Manufacturer Response dude's post: The GPU is designed to operate in temperatures even over 100c, so 65-72c is perfectly within operating conditions.

Other Thoughts: I've been talking of the model 512-P3-N975-AR, I'm going to purchase this card (512-P3-N973-TR) as a mate for a SLI set up. My model has been discontinued, this cards specks are identical to mine.

My old one is solid enough to be with me for another couple of years or longer.

When upgrading the drivers, there are programs that go through your system and delete files that get left behind (driver sweeper - nvidia driver cleaner). But I just use agent ransack (file finder) and search for and delete all NV*.* files.

Pros: I bought this card to SLi with the 9800GT I already owned and performance has doubled!

Cons: the cards run a little hot 50-70 degrees Celsius but I think it is normal.

5 out of 5 eggsgood buy

Pros: quick setup
-a really good buy if you're looking for a multimedia setup

Cons: none so far

Other Thoughts: -uses the 4 pin cable for power
-make sure you have enough power to support it (mine is at 500w)
-idles at 60 C
-runs a bit warm (70 C) during some intensive graphic settings, so be sure to get proper air flow inside
