5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful Card

Pros: Beautiful card, didn't write a review just in case. I wanted to see how long the card can hold up for. So far so Great. Spider-man 3 at MAX settings plays like butter on Freakin Vista man. But I just installed it on another Hard drive with XP pro and plays even better, 90-100 Fps, on Vista, 104-125 on XP, Nothing fancy Core 2 Duo@1.86 Got it overclocked to 3.14Ghz, 2 Gigs Ram G-Skill, and The freakin Temps at 47c-55c with ambient temp at 55-65 F. I can't believe how good this bad boy can go. Of course I have the one made by XFX although I do agree with the dude who wrote the other review about the warranty, I got XFX because it has a higher clock rating

Cons: Not A Darn Thing Except, If you know your stuff take it apart and put a better Heat sink for serious Gamers.. Nada darn thing else.

Other Thoughts: This Card is Rated Me a better rating with 3D mark 03,05,06.. I scored 41,156 On 3D Mark 03, 18,896 on Mark 05, and A Whopping 12,264 on Mark 06, Overclocked card at 691 Mhz. Core Clock and 1950 Mhz on Memory,

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very Nice card. Its gets the job done and plays COD4 effortlessly. No issues thus far, and do not expect any. I have not experienced any heat issues.

Cons: Harder to put in a small case, duh. Need a nice PSU, I'd recommend at least 500watts.

Other Thoughts: Great Card great deal. When i installed this card i also upgraded my PSU, and added 2 more GB ram. No issue with anything. Newegg for the win.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card, but should be cheaper by now

Pros: The card has basically done everything I've asked it to do, and done it with flying colors. I have mine overclocked to 625Mhz core clock (over 550 stock) and 900Mhz memory clock (over 800Mhz stock). Haven't tried Crysis yet, but everything else runs great. Mainly play Lord of the Rings Online, which looks great.

Cons: Heat... As another reviewer reported, the card runs about 65C general, and upwards of 80C in games. I had a couple of crashes due to that, but then I switched to the XClio Windtunnel case, and the heat problem went away. Now it runs about 10-15C cooler all the time.
Price... It was the same price a year ago, and the new G92 cards are better and cheaper.

Other Thoughts: My Asus Crosshair motherboard has been begging me for a second one of these for a year, but the price just hasn't come down, even with the newer cards on the market. Now that I've got it running totally stable in the Windtunnel case, 10C cooler than it was, I want to push it even farther. BFG rocks. :)

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect Video Card

Pros: Have two running in SLI, they work great. Great company with great support. I had the worst experience of my life with a ASUS video card. The fan went out after 4 months, and Asus took 7 (SEVEN) months to replace it. Switched to BFG and gave my old card away after the wait.

Cons: Nothing significant.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I have had this video card since you could buy them and the only game that has given me a little trouble so far is Crysis. Other than that this is well worth the money. Runs pretty cool also.

Cons: It is a little big though so make sure you have enough room for it.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card!

Pros: We've used these cards for a while now. Nothing bad to say, all good, comes with much more stuff than the XFX cards (we'll never use XFX again) and their support is top notch. We once had a problem at 1:00am on Sunday, they were there to help. Not some uneducated noob but a real professional who knew his stuff. Great company!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: How come you guys stop giving out the shirts with the cards? It was a bit silly, so are the stickers... maybe software instead? MMOG game time cards? Go make some biz deals... ;)

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I bought this card at a retail closeout sale and could not be happier. I got it with one idea in mind: using it to play games and media on my HD TV. So far, I can't seem to slow it down. I've run COD4 at 1920x1080 on fairly decent settings and no hiccups. Same for Crysis.

Cons: I still need to figure out some quirks for 1080p video, but technically this card should play it fine. I had some 1080p encoded files (not on Blu-ray or HD-DVD) so it could always be the ecoding.

Other Thoughts: Great card. Awesome upgrade from a 7600GTS. If I had the cash or the know-how, I'd get a second and try an SLI setup.

My system specs: 2.4 Core 2 Duo, 485W Enermax, 2x1GB G.Skill DDR2 800, 500GB Seagate Sata II

3 out of 5 eggsNot all id hoped

Pros: Its and Nvidia Card.

Cons: Mayhap my unrealistic expectations of what an expensive GPU should run like. Power hungry and massive. Price to performance ratio.

Other Thoughts: Given the fact this card is rather expensive most who would purchase would hope if not expect some sort of noticable difference in graphics but in my case the upgrade from 2 7800GTX in Sli to a single 8800GTX was none. yeah my benchmarks got better but overall no noticeable difference in game play on WoW, BF2 COD4 yeah i play Crysis better but for the money well..... i dont know, guess 2 in Sli is an option but another half a G for a new PSU seems like alot to play 1 game as of this far with nothing really on the horizon in game releases as far as i can see.

5 out of 5 eggsW O W is all I can say

Pros: I have been an avid customer of NewEgg for some time and have never had anything but GOOD to say about their customer service and timely efficient shipping. This Video Card Rocks!! It may be pricey but you do get what you pay for in this instance. I maxed out at 188 FPS in COH and am running at 53c temp when in intense play. 162 FPS in Crysis
System: Dual Raptor 74gb HD's in Raid 0 / Asus P5N32-E SLI / Intel Quad 6600 CPU / 4GB OCZ Platinum / Antec 900 Case

Cons: NONE What So Ever

Other Thoughts: As all have said, 1) PSU should be at no less than 650 Watt with multiple 12 Volt rails / Proper airflow in your case is a must!!
