5 out of 5 eggsGood Cheap 8800GTS

Pros: Overclocks well and is a stable 8800GTS 512.

Cons: The package basically just includes the card, drivers, and the normal adapters.

Other Thoughts: If you are looking at getting a 8800GTS 512, this one is as good as any of the others if you are just looking to get a card. It overclocks well and runs pretty cool with my Thermatake Du-Orbs on them. I don't have the stock cooling so I can't comment other than others have said it is fairly good for stock. The only drawback is that this is basically just the card when it comes down to it. There are no games or anything really cool included, so if you are interested in that get a different brand. Basically if you are looking for just a card at a good price pick up one of these.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Quieter than I expected with the fan factory set to run at 37% of max rpm at idle.

Cons: By the time you get the parts necessary to build the computer to make sure the card even works, PNY will have invalidated your rebate.

5 out of 5 eggsNo complaints!

Pros: Runs most games on "High" with a 1680x1050 resolution on a 20 inch screen. Can probably go higher, but my monitor doesn't run well with higher resolution, not the card's fault. Also runs fine with a stock Dell 300 watts PSU (seriously underrated from dell). Currently overclocked to 720 core and it's very stable. This card has potential to go higher, but I need more fans in my case.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: I don't understand all the complaints about this card being "too big." First, ALL G92 8800 GTS cards are nearly the same exact size. Second, if you're looking to buy a 8800 series GTS, you should already expect the size since they are ALL the same reference design. If this card was bigger than other G92 GTS cards, I would understand the complaint, but it's NOT! This card fits in a Dell Vostro 200 Mini Tower just fine for me.

5 out of 5 eggsPowerful

Pros: Fast, stable, perfect image quality. Got it for a steal price (thank you newegg). Went from 6,500 in 3Dmark2006 to 10,600. Would score higher, but CPU is holding it back (Opteron 165 @ 2.88ghz).

Cons: Runs hot (75c under load is not uncommon). Fan doesn't go above 36% unless the card is over 80c.

Other Thoughts: Excellent card, very happy with purchase. Looking forward to playing the next set of graphic heavy games (Age of Conan, GRiD, Dawn of War II, etc)

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Can't complain about the performance. I have two of these SLI'd on a eVGA 780i board and have not had one problem yet. Other reviewers were saying that the cards get hot but I had played Crysis and COD4 at full settings on these cards for about 2 days and had not had a problem with heat. I attribute that to the Antec 900 gaming case but my point is that with good airflow one should not have an issue.

Cons: None that I have found thus far

Other Thoughts: System specs:
eVGA 780i Motherboard
Intel E4500 2.2 Ghz
4GB of Crucial Gaming RAM
2 of these bad boys in SLI mode.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Solid Card

Pros: This card looks great and works pretty quiet. It even looks pretty.

Cons: Drivers are a little tempermental but with beauty comes attiude.

Other Thoughts: I would recommend this card for anyone who wants to play new games but either doesn't have the scratch or the setup for the double core cards. All in all a very decent card.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent card

Pros: Save ALL of the packaging and receipts for this card otherwise PNY will NOT take it back. I had mine for almost a year (6 days shy) and it died. Called PNY, sent it back and had a new card in a week. Otherwise the card is great. Graphics are crisp and clean.

Cons: It is big and hot. I wish that the back of the card had some graphics on it (like the "front"). Otherwise none.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Excellent video card. Comes with RGB interface for your HDTV.

Cons: Driver disc was not a factory stamped disc! It was a CD-R with a sticker label.

Other Thoughts: Make an image of driver disc..the stickers will bleed into the burnt area of CD-R over time
