4 out of 5 eggsMore than what u paid...

Pros: The price is lower now but still in the same range $100-$150. This is one of the few cards I have owned that out performed its price point. This card starts to really fly if u have a quad-core. I started with a 3.2g duel-core but after I got the quad I almost doubled frames in most games.

Cons: After about 6 months I started to get odd black-screen crashes but a timely video driver upgrade about amonth later fixed it. Now sometimes when i am watching streaming video from any online source the first add. before the intended show appears is just green with the right audio. No motion just a flat green screen. Like other reviewers have said its a hot card but the onboard fan moves air enough but your case needs good venting/fans. Its not the hottest card out there on a scale 1-10 I give it a 7. If u can deal with the heat it over clocks 10%-15% without crashes or excess heat.

Other Thoughts: I have built a !@#$ load of systems my first being a 486DX-33 with a then huge 4mg RAM. I normally wait a few years before a video card upgrade as I was useing an 7900GT that was a later release well after the 9000s were out. But I was still quite blown away by the power of this card. I only drop off an egg b/c of the wonky green screen stuff but for gamers who read this can still consider it a 5 of 5 rated card.

4 out of 5 eggs50/50

Pros: Works well on Windows 7 32 bit, no driver issues

Cons: but the first card KILLED my motherboard so I had to RMA the video card and build a whole new system.

the second card works like a charm... so far
the RMA took about 3 weeks

Other Thoughts: originally I only intended to upgrade the graphic card, ended up building a whole new system, new MB/CPU/Ram/Video card(this one)and new sound card.

I had recently changed my case and monitor so this is now a whole new system.

2 out of 5 eggss-video out doesn't work correctly

Pros: seems to run quite

Cons: Purchased to replace an EVGA 7600GT in a Windows 7 x64 Media center machine. The S-Video out doesn't work correctly with this card. Reinserted 7600GT and all is well.

Other Thoughts: I really wanted to upgrade my video card, but I guess when newer hardware doesn't build on prior features, it's not really an upgrade.

Contacted evga about the problem. They didn't have any input on if it would work or how to make it work.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!

Pros: Amazing Card, Fast speeds, just as good as the 220 (in fact this card is the basis for the 220, the 220 just has a smaller die size) Works with PCI-E v1. Can run on a older powersupply if needed.

Cons: LONG! I had to move my hard drives around in my case to fit it inside

HOT! make sure you have good airflow!

Other Thoughts: hey, hard to beat for the price!

1 out of 5 eggsUpdate to my first review

Pros: Update to my first review.

Cons: I made a mistake and put in the wrong driver update. My review stated it was a 195.??. It should have read 197.45.

Other Thoughts: I just shipped my 3rd RMA off to EVGA. I should have the 4th RMA card sometime next week. I am hoping for the best, but don't expect it. The card was used in a HP e9200z and a home built computer. The card failed in both computers. I do believe it's a driver problem, but so far EVGA nor Nvidia haven't found the problem. With all the new video cards coming out I don't believe EVGA nor Nvidia will want to spend any money or time to fix the drivers. I also tested both computers with a 210G and a ATI FireGL V3600 workstation video cards. No problems or error's running these cards.

5 out of 5 eggsResearch your error codes

Pros: Great card for the money

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: The error code the gentleman was getting below was driver-related. The current driver version for nVidia cards as of this posting is 197.45...he was still using a 195 series driver. Always be sure to keep your drivers up to date before blaming the hardware. Cheers.

3 out of 5 eggsGood, but loud

Pros: Card runs well and is very cost effective.

Cons: This is the loudest video card I have ever heard. I don't think this matters to most people, but if you care about noise at all, this is not the card for you.

Other Thoughts: I did not purchase this card, but was given it by EVGA when I RMA'd my original 9800GT. That first card was double-width and exhausted out of the chassis.

1 out of 5 eggsJunk

Pros: When it works it a good card. When it WORKS.

Cons: Bought this card back in Dec. 2009 (but not from Newegg which was a mistake). The card would shut down and restart for no reason. The error message would state a Kernel 195.?? stopped working and the card would restarted. I have worked with EVGA and I am on my third card, the last two are RMA's. The same problem. I use Studio 14 for video editing and the card would stop working and I would lose all my work.

Other Thoughts: If you buy a EVGA video card remember to register right away. I didn't and EVGA won't let me do a buy up. I have asked EVGA to replace the 9800 GT card with a Geforce 250 which is almost the same card and price but because I didn't register with in one month they won't work with me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for the $$$.

Pros: I just gotta say that I love this card. I can max out the graphics on L4D2, DiRT2, Fallout 3, and I can finally get GTAIV to work. Torchlight was always easy to run but it looks even better. All games achieve 60 fps consistently. I upgraded from an 8600gts and the results are incredible. Even dvd's, AVI's and mp4's look a lot better.

XP32 SP3
Intel i7 2.66
3gigs 1066

Cons: The fan is slightly louder than the one on my 8600, but that one was basically silent. So I'll say it's audible, but if I turn up my case fans those sound way louder. This is not a problem for me, but if you are looking for absolute silence you may be annoyed.

Other Thoughts: I bought this particular card because it was one of the only ones that fit my minimum requirements and still only took up a single slot on the mobo. This was because I didn't think my case could fit one of those double slot cards. Well, both length and width wise my case has enough room. If I had known that I probably would have just spent the extra $30 or $40 and gotten a slightly more muscular card. However, this really is a great card for just a little over $100 so I have no complaints!

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fantastic Card, not a single problem thus far... getting awesome performance and its staying pretty cool.

Cons: none thus far.

Other Thoughts: I see a whole lot of people complaining about high temps on this card but I am actually getting pretty cool temps even when the card is being stressed. Nvidia+EVGA only way to go.
