1 out of 5 eggsGarbage Card - BEWARE

Pros: Somewhat fast card when it worked. Cons made it almost unplayable.

Cons: Artifacts like crazy. Even at idle it would make wavy lines on the desktop. In HL2 it would make tons of artifacts and also screw up drawing the shapes. I would have to quick save/quick load every 5 minutes to fix it. Had to underclock it to make it even remotely usable.

Other Thoughts: Horrible card. DO NOT BUY. I entirely regret buying it. Big waste of $$$.

3 out of 5 eggsgo for the 6600gt instead

Pros: good cooling, 256bit, ability to OC.

Cons: Cons: The bundle leaves a lot to desire. No demos or games. Artifacts became more apparent by time after the tweak with riva2ner after a week.

Other Thoughts: his card is super long, make sure it fits inside your case

4 out of 5 eggsGot Lucky

Pros: Went from 8 to 16 pipelines and from 4 to 6 vertex shaders with reevatuner. CS:S runs @ 1280x1024 super smooth now with (60 fps stable). Huge fan to dissipate the heat

Cons: The bundle leaves a lot to desire. No demos or games.

Other Thoughts: This card is super long, make sure it fits inside your case.Havent overclocked it yet, but I will when the time is right.

5 out of 5 eggsApollo Geforce 6800

Pros: Very high performance right out of the box, but can overclock really well also. Very good cooling system - just look at the size of this mafaka!

Cons: Wouldn't allow me to unlock the extra pipe - some cards will and some won't, but card works as advertised. Oh, if you get lines, increase your refresh rate, they'll disappear.

Other Thoughts: It's SHOWTIME, at the APPOLLO!!
Only there aren't a bunch of black people in a theatre, just an incredible video card that will run Doom 3 at 1024x768 on Ultra High settings at decent frame rates. Highly Recommended!

4 out of 5 eggsLooks good but it broke

Pros: This card looked good and it did just fine. I had no trouble installing it and I had no trouble with drivers. A good buy for the money.

Cons: After working fine for six weeks, it broke. I'm in the process of returning it for a replacement now.

Other Thoughts: I was very happy with this product before it broke. I hope the replacement works as well but lasts longer.

1 out of 5 eggsSTAY AWAY!!

Pros: None that I can think of.

Cons: Stay away! That's all I can say. I'm on my third by now (having returned two for horrible artifacting), and the third isn't much better. On the plus, it doesn't artifact, on the negative it only has 8 pipelines (the one I originally purchased had 12 and was advertised as so), had the memory clock at 650 instead of 700 as advertised, performs horribly, runs at a consitently high temperature (56C IDLE), and cannot be overclocked. Plain and simple, this card sucks. There is not one single positive thing that I can think of concerning this card.

Other Thoughts: While it was possible to unlock the locked pipelines on the card, due to the underclocked memory, and general suck factor of the card it still performs quite horribly (certainly not as well as I would like the card I will be using for the next 2+ years to perform). Just skip it. You'd probably be better off throwing your money in a hole, or burning it. You'd certainly have fewer issues and better graphical quality if you did that.
