4 out of 5 eggsGets along well with others

Pros: Worked great for years. Bought this card as a second card so I could SLI them. The other card was the standard clock speed model #512-P3-N801-AR. Combined the two cards never had a single problem. They occupied adjacent slots so one didn't get much airflow compared to the other, but neither failed me. I kept the cards until just recently. I could run BF3 with zero issues in Low and SniperElite V2 on high in 1920x1080. The invidia drivers saw the difference in the card models and automatically assigned the higher clock speed model to run PhysX to maximize performance.

Even as of 10/12/12, They have some resale value!

Cons: They're still only 512MB 8800GT's.

I was due for an upgrade when I had just one and since other cards are so darn expensive I had only one choice but to buy another at this great price.

Other Thoughts: I realize as of writing this review that this card is discontinued. I just saw all the people talking bad about them and couldn't help but feel that this card was getting beat up a bit by other users. Both worked awesome for me the entire time I owned them. I never worried about temps and I never checked. Maybe I should have, but they were so flawless that I didn't have to worry about anything.
If I hadn't received an offer from someone to buy them from me, I would put them in my computer at work and get another few years out of them. I bought a EVGA GTX570HD for 219 bucks on new egg a week ago. That's less than I paid for both cards and better performance. I couldn't pass that up.

2 out of 5 eggsBuyer Beware of EVGA warranty

Pros: Worked for 2 years- one star for every year it worked.

Cons: My EVGA 8800 worked for 2 years, then failed with no video output at all.
I thought, ok, per my manual and in the detailed specs I'm covered:
Manufacturer Limited Warranty period (parts): Lifetime
Manufacturer Limited Warranty period (labor): Lifetime
= now read the FINE PRINT on EVGA's website =
it says you have to register it within 30 days of purchase. It doesn't say that here or in the user manual.
They are not going to replace my failed card because of this fine print. They failed to mention it anywhere I would have read it within 30 days of purchase.
**I will NEVER buy an EVGA product ever again**

Other Thoughts: I love newegg! Best company on the web, hands down. I'll always look on newegg first for any and all pc products.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good card for the money at the time. I bought it over a year ago and it worked well for that time.

Cons: Runs very hot as others have said. With fan set at 100% and the side of the case off and a house fan less than a foot away it still runs at over 60C in-game. There have been many driver issues that have required me to rollback and now the card fails whenever it goes over 60C in-game and freezes my whole PC.

Other Thoughts: From what I've seen and what friends that are more tech savvy than I have told me, there are better cards for the money.

4 out of 5 eggsgreat card but runs hot!

Pros: Single slot card obviously, that would probably be the only reason you are looking at buying this card!
Same G92 core found in the 9800gtx and gts250, simply underclocked.

Cons: Runs hot, 58c idle and mid 80's while gaming with the fan at 75%. Any more than 75% and the fan is very loud. Apparently these temps are OK for video cards, so it only gets 1 egg deducted.
With the fan at 100%, idle is still 58c and max temps reach mid to upper 70's.

Other Thoughts: If you need a single slot card, this is probably the most powerful card you can get. If you don't have restrictions on size, I'd move along and get a different card.
I also have an EVGA gts250_512mb. This card barely scores less than it. With the gts250 at 825 core clock and 1350 memory (great overclocker, stock is 756/1100) I score 17,800 on 3dmark06. With this card running at 700/1000 (stock is 600/900) I score a little over 15k. Not bad, expecially for being 1/2 the size.

3 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Handles everything on High settings: EVE, Batman: AA, Titan Quest, Fallout 3, etc. Does its job perfectly with repeated driver updates from nVidia.

Cons: -GPU runs warm (60-70c), but have been assured repeatedly by EVGA staff and other Newegg posters that this is fine and does not negatively impact the GPU. If you are expecting 30-50c under moderate load, you may be surprised. Try a directional fan.
-RMAs: see below.

Other Thoughts: Had to RMA twice, but was handled with the utmost care and got quick response from EVGA. There were two RMAs, which is a problem. One dead fan and two dead DVI connectors later, it is the rock of my workhorse gaming PC.

5 out of 5 eggsgood to see this again

Pros: I have 2 8800GT in SLi, this card being one of them. Standard clock is 600Mhz so 650 out tha box is cool but really doesn't gain much performance. Speaking of cool these cards run hot so besure you have good air-flow. I can play about any game out right now.

Cons: $300 when first came out now $99.99 if I only knew then....

Other Thoughts: good buy but for $40-$70 more you could get a 260GTX thats more than double the performance. I like the 8800GT, but I'll never buy the latest and greatest again, Like I said I can still play any game out and Ive had these for a year and a half.
