1 out of 5 eggsP O S

Pros: none

Cons: rma'd this item 4 times in a 6 month period. The cards always burn out in less then a week mainly because the oncard cooling is a single fan sandwiched between 2 GPU's.

Even adding a stack of airflow to a LCS system didn't help this issue at all. after 4rth attempt it was no longer financially feasable to keep paying shipping costs as they already totaled the same value as initial purchase.

Other Thoughts: Have never bought another item from this company.
the fact that they RMA without question would seem like a nice idea ... except in this case its because they know they produced junk that doesn't maintain a functionality unless you live near a geographic pole and have an open window in the room

5 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: My 3rd purchase of 9800 GX2. Running two in one system and one in the other. It runs like a dream now. Runs toasty, but helps keep the room warm in Winter.

Cons: Arrived DOA, had over 30 days before I tried it and was out of Newegg warranty. Contacted manufacturer, and was RMA'd immediately. Arrived within a week and run great. CUDOs for Newegg and BFG Tech for the support!!

Other Thoughts: If I had another system, I would purchase another one!!

5 out of 5 eggs2nd is a charm

Pros: Ok, I liked this so much I bought a second and going to try it in my son's machine combined with a E8500, 4gb Dominator and an MSI 780i board. The PSU is a Corsair 850 with 70 amps on one rail. This should play every game like it was on steroids.

Cons: Heat but in a Katana case from Raidmax no issue. It has a 250 fan.

Other Thoughts: If this doesn't make much difference due to cpu being a dual core then I will test in my machine with a Phenom II 3ghz, 780a MSI board with 8gb OCZ Reaper. Will write follow up review later.

5 out of 5 eggsPOWER SUPPLY?!!

Pros: Great card. 2 of them is even better! The powersupply i have is a 750w with a 60amp and only once has it did something weird on me. In quad sli i have a 920 i7 @ 3.9ghz at 1.41volts and both videocards at 680/2100. At those settings my powersupply has never failed, so all the recommendations for a 1000w or some huge powersupply is a no-go. Just make sure you have enough amps going to the cards.

Cons: But!! at 4.2ghz at 1.55v and my videocards at 700/2200 it did fine at idle but when i started up 3dmark06 it usually blue screens if not enough volts to cpu, but it blackscreened and the computer was like half on ,very weird ,so that makes me believe that i ran out of juice. Ive done the test at 700/2200 @ 3.8ghz and it did fine ,and i did it @ 4.2ghz at 600/2000 so i know both work at seperate times but not at the same time. I am dissapointed on my 3dmark06 scores though getting only a 22200 at 3.9ghz with this in quad as i got 20100 with 1 card and a dualcore cpu. My dual core was at 4.4ghz though.

Other Thoughts: I also have 2 massive 250mm fans on the case, 6gig of ram , dual V.raptors in raid, and a Unbelievable sized vigormonsoonIII cpu cooler that uses 2 120mm fans on the cooler itself. So im telling you guys mine is a pretty high end computer that is very overclocked and a 750watt PSU is good enough. Dont waist your money on 1200w or something like that. Just make sure its a high end version.

5 out of 5 eggs9800GX2

Pros: I got this graphics card with my new rig, and it runs great. So far I have tested it on: COD4, COD WAW, Elder Scrolls Oblivion. Fallout 3, Red Alert 3, Company of Heroes, and of course Crysis. I can Run all those games at the highest settings with good frames, except Crysis. For some reason Crysis has lag spikes. Other than that 1600x1200 high/ultra high (without postprocessing) I get about 30FPS until the game lag spikes. I dled the newest drivers for this GPU and hopefully more will come out in the future, pros are saying that this card hasnt even reached its potential yet with the current patches.

Rig:
Coolermaster Cosmos S
Corsair 750W
Intel 3.16Ghz dual core
EVGA 780i
4GB 2x2 1066 OCZ Reapers

Cons: GPU gets hot but its not as bad as people say it is. So far with my Cosmos S stock cooling 120mm fans i can keep this card stable. The hardest I played it was for about 6 hours straight running all those games above, and the card was not dangerously hot. With 2 quality 120mm intake fans and 1 exhaust this card should be fine. Water cooling is not necessary.

Other Thoughts: So far I can play any game on the market. Except crysis. Im going to get another one of these once newegg stocks them again. And in SLI I can probably run crysis maxed at a steady 50-60 FPS. I also recommend 600+ watt PSU. The minimum for this card will barley cover it, keep in mind your keyboard, mobo, screen and such all takes watts to power. A 1000W PSU running will not consume 1000W constantly it will use the most your computer needs, so dont be afraid of your electric bills skyrocketing with high power PSU's. Also I hear people saying to use a good CPU with this GPU because it might bottleneck the performance, dual cores are dirt cheap right now anyways so that shouldent be a problem.

5 out of 5 eggsOrdered today

Pros: 2 GPUs on one card. This eliminates the X8 bottleneck on many mainboards. Replacing 2 8800 GTs for my son. Unless you are running 2 GTX280/285s or a 295 this is the card by which all is measured by still. Uses less power than a 4870X2 or GTX295 and for less money. I heard BFG has great service which is part of my decision.

Cons: Heat in some cases. My son has a Raidmax Katana case so the 250 fan will keep it cold.

Other Thoughts: Recommend having a decent processor to run with this or your CPU will bottleneck your game session. This is going with an E8500, 4gb corsair dominator on a 780a MSI board, 640GB WD. My son does a lot of everquest but also a lot of FPS games such a CS source. The more frames the better.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat price

Pros: The card is strong ,and 2 of them is fantasic. I get upto 350fps in cod4 at max on 1680x1050. Also YOU DONT need that big of a power supply, its recommended but i only have a 750w with a powerful 60amp and i run 920i7 @ 3.4ghz with 2 of these in quad and its still more than enough power.

Cons: The package came a day late, and it was damaged. neweggs box was fine but the 9800 box was awful. It had puncture holes in it and it was torn on the side. I open it up and even the papers inside were all crumpled and torn.

Other Thoughts: Atleast it worked though.

5 out of 5 eggsOh Yes!!!!!!!!

Pros: This is a great card and a great buy perfect for the gamer.

Cons: This guy is big i had to modify my hard drive chassis for it to fit and make sure you have a good power supply at least 800w

Other Thoughts: New Egg the best prices and the fastest shipping!

Thank you.

5 out of 5 eggsTop Notched

Pros: I run Folding @ Home on two 9800 GX2 cards and produce aproximately 22k points a day. I built another system with a third 9800 GX2 and am not diaappointed with production. Highly recommend for this line of work.

Cons: Same con as the rest.....I can heat my room with the output of BTU's from ther cards. Add a little extra cooling and it is sweet.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: I bought two of these card for a sli system for a home theater system. The card work as advertise. I am able to stream video to HDTV with no problem.

Cons: I would have gave 5 stars if I could have register the other card on BFG Tech web site. I register one card, but could not log on the site to resister the other card. I hope I don't have problem with them. They do get pretty warm.

Other Thoughts: My HTPC is a Silverstone CW03 case,motherboard M2N32SLI Deluxe, 1100 PSU, two BFG 9800 GX2 video card, LG Blueray DVD Burner. I also WD hard, OS ubuntu.
