5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!!!

Pros: Very nice card for the price. I bought it over two years ago, and I can still play every new game I've tried on the highest settings. It installed no problem, has some great software included, and even came with a free game. It's quiet, even when playing games. S-Video for easy TV connection.

Cons: It's big! I thought for a second it wouldn't fit in the motherboard I have. (MicroATX) It takes up a lot of room in the case, but it wouldn't be a problem if I had chosen the motherboard or case. It's not really the cards fault. It has 2 DVI connectors. Once again, not really the card's fault. I just have old monitors and had to buy 2 adapters. I've had some issues with it after performing other maintenance/upgrades, but reseating the card always fixed the issue. So, all of the cons are pretty much just my fault or the fault of other components.

Other Thoughts: I ended up having to purchase a new processor just to keep up with the card. It's lasted over two years for me. Overall, it's done very well.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy install.

Pros: Did a fair amount of research before deciding on this card. Primary used for gaming (L4D, Borderlands, BioShock, ETC..) Software that is included installed with no issues, and it is used daily to max out the fan speed when playing a game. Temps have never risen to an abnormal level in the seven months that I've had it installed. Plays the current games that I have (and breezes thru older games) at a good frame rate with no shuddering or issues.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: It's SLI compatible and won't break the bank if you need more than to buy another if the need arises.

5 out of 5 eggsBEAST!

Pros: Abosolutly amazing. It is big, but that can only mean one thing. POWER. Worth your money.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: i hate people who complain about size, it is like they never thought bout getting a bigger case, or even planned about it. Also this card may cost a couple dollars extra then some other brands, but you have to remember, you get what you pay for, and this is definitly good.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid card

Pros: -Lifetime Warranty. Make sure you register on EVGA's site, they offer a lifetime warranty and have been excellent about honoring it in the past.

-PhysX support. It makes more of a difference than I expected, and at modest settings it has very few problems.

-Good "budget" performance. It's not the fastest card on the market, and it certainly won't play the latest games with everything maxed out, but I've yet to find a game that it can't come up with playable framerates on at respectable detail levels.

Cons: -Large. Even though it's the smallest of the double-slot cards, don't let it surprise you. This thing will easily span the width of your motherboard over both slots, make sure you don't have any ports or case areas in the way.

-For some reason, the fan on my card doesn't like to manually change speed in EVGA Precision. Occasionally it works right, but most of the time, unchecking Auto and setting a speed will jump the fan to that speed, and within 2 seconds, the fan will jump back down to the previous speed, or occasionally a few percent above or below the previous speed. A friend with the same card has no problems, and it's not enough of a bother to RMA, but it is annoying.

-My card was a fairly mild overclocker, at 800/2400. This is really to be expected, since the card is a rebadged higher clockspeed 9800GTX+, and certaily not enough to knock off an egg for.

Other Thoughts: If you upgrade later you can always keep this card as a dedicated PhysX card. Check your PSU for it's amperage rating. The recommended 24A minimum is for systems with one or two 12v rails, if you have a 4 rail system with one dedicated only to the GPU connectors, 18A is fine on that rail.

I had an older generic 500w psu, with 2 12v rails @ 16A each. It would run EXTREMELY hot while gaming, and died about 2 weeks after I got this card. I upgraded to a name-brand 700w psu, which had no issues at all.

This card can be a great upgrade for pre-built systems, it will fit in quite a few microATX cases from different companies. Obviously do a visual inspection before ordering to make sure.

5 out of 5 eggsPower at a price

Pros: I bought this card in NYC to replace an aging 8600GT that I bought off of a friend. I didn't have the money to spring for a 5870 or 4890, and I had the available cash, so I went for this. It's easily the largest card I've ever used, but that's not much, considering that I usually work with low profile systems.
Anyway, this card runs cool while making little noise. It runs Call of Duty 4 at maximum settings and Fallout 3 at pretty high settings. The overclocking tools included are pretty useful.

Cons: Width. Make sure you have space underneath your PCI-E port. It's several inches thick. It's kind of a power hog, and you need to make sure that it's plugged in.

Other Thoughts: It's good if you need a cheap, fairly powerful card. Also looks pretty cool. ;-) Currently runs in my budget build PC.

3 out of 5 eggsRebate offer was bogus

Pros: I purchased this for my son who play WOW and it is working fine so far. The frame rates have increased a noticeable increase from our gt8600

Cons: EVGA will not honor the rebate that was offered with this product. They should not use it to intice a purchase if they have no intention of honoring the rebate. I will actively avoid their products in the future.

5 out of 5 eggsWill buy another

Pros: Fast card, able to play Risen, Witcher, Need 4 Speed:Shift, and Fallout 3 on max comfortably.

SLI

Value per dollar rocks

Cons: n/a

Other Thoughts: Windows 7 rated this GPU at a 6.8 out of 7.9 - not too bad considering the price. There are faster cards that are capable of more, but honestly I couldn't imagine spending more money right now. DirectX 11 is right around the corner so spending an ungodly amount of money on a card to just have it upgraded a year later doesn't make sense.

This card will definitely last another 1.5-2 years.
