4 out of 5 eggsXP=Great, Vista= Good

Pros: Great Card for DX9. Very Good card for DX10. Most every game I've ran has been pretty smooth accept Crysis.

Cons: The Vista/Nvidia dirty little secret:
Display Driver Stopped Responding and Has Recovered - nvlddmkm nVidia Driver

Google it.

Other Thoughts: This is a very good card, but not the "Uber" card I was hoping for reading the reviews. Most games run very well with highest graphics settings but not with 8AA or 16AA at 1680X1024 resolution. But keep in mind here I'm being picky, I want them to run like butter... I have to run the Crysis demo at 1024X768 to get acceptable frame rates (30+) and some graphics settings at "Very High". I'm running in the EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 680i Mobo, Q6600 CPU, 2 gigs GSKill F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ RAM

5 out of 5 eggsSo far so good

Pros: A lot of reviews here fail to include screen resolution which makes the entire review only somewhat useful IMHO. I CAN tell you that I put this card in last night and ran Crysis (demo), Bioshock, and HL2, all at their highest dx9 settings and they were all smooth as butter. The one exception might be Crysis which ran great but maybe not quite as smooth. I had everything set to "high" and 16X AA. You can't set Crysis to "highest" settings without dx10.

Cons: I am pretty sure this card could not handle dx10 at 1600 X 1200 resolutions....but TWO cards might. Also, this card is HUGE! I had to alter my (screwless, ugh) case to fit the card in.

Other Thoughts: If you really want your Vista and dx10 and you want it NOW, you may want to go for a 8800 gtx or ultra. For me this card was perfect, I will probably upgrade later, when I go to dx10, by either getting another one of these or the next model up. The thing is, this card will always be good for an HTPC because it is HDCP compliant.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat upgrade

Pros: Runs surprisingly cool. I upgraded from EVGA 8800 GTS 320mb that ideled at 60C and this one runs at 53C. runs pretty quiet too. Dual lifetime Warrenty form XFX rocks.

Cons: Big!!. Came slightly underclocked 596/940. Lost planet game stinks because you have to have a Xbox controller to play it. key/mouse only works until you hop into a robot. I tried 2 analog gamepads and they did not work right

Other Thoughts: Games - AVG FPS on MAX settings
Far Cry 90
Half Life 2 62
Prey 35
Quake 4 40
Bioshock 58
Jerico 50
Pain Killer 1800 (not a joke)

My system
AMD 64 X2 5200+ 2.6
2x 1GB Gskill PC6400 dual channel

5 out of 5 eggsThis card is Hott!

Pros: What can I say but... WOW. I just finished playing the Crysis single player demo for about an hour or so, and this baby churns out the framerates like there is no tomorrow. Graphics details are set to HIGH (no anti-aliasing) on 1440x900 and it runs around 30-40 fps on average, even during blazing firefights.

Bioshock runs at 1680x1050 with DX10 shaders on and it still churns out around 50-60 fps.

Call of Duty 4 demo looks amazing, with everything set to max and still 60 fps.

Oblivion = Maximum settings (and I mean EVERYTHING max... but no AA with HDR) and still 50-60 fps.

Unreal Tournament III demo at maximum settings and (still) 50-60 fps.

just. wow.

With every other game, no matter what I do (turn up the detail, AA and AF all the way up), I still can't get this card to chug. It's always running at a MINIMUM 50 fps in most apps.

Oh yeah, double lifetime warranty, free Lost Planet game, and TONS OF HOT CHICKS POP OUT OF THE BOX!!

but not really.

Cons: HOT. Vetty vetty hot! Make sure your case has super-dope-tastic airflow/water/Liquid Nitrogen cooling, because this thing is going to heat up like a space heater. But not really. on idle, it runs at a warm 55C. Under load, it gets to be a toasty 80C. it's hot.

and big... but you know that already. Make sure it's able to fit in your case... read reviews on your specific case or take measurements so that you know the card will fit (minimum length clearance should be around 9.5 inches)

Other Thoughts: Crysis is BY FAR the most demanding game I have played using this card, and even then it's still very playable on high settings. If you want to go with 1920x1200 resolutions, go with the GTX.

If you want a good deal, however, go with either this one, or the 320 MB version (580 MHz core) for lower resolution monitors. I highly recommend getting a 640 MB because in the long run, most games will use such detailed textures and shaders that they will start consuming memory like it's candy. 640 MB is where it's at.

5 out of 5 eggsThats that

Pros: Fast. Powerful. Beastly. Runs every new game maxed. When i say maxed, I mean MAXED. Stress tested on 10 games made in 2006 or 2007. Passed all flawlessly minus World in Conflict it did skip a beat or two maxed all the way out however.

Cons: Price is high. Runs Hot, even with an after market PCI slot fan card below this, effectively taking up 3 slots total. The card does not come with the 4pin to 6pin connector required if you're power supply doesn't come with one, you must call to get one shipped to you at no charge. No major problems.

Other Thoughts: The service with this card was great. I would buy this card if you are looking at a high end monster card, don't wimp out, you'll love it!

5 out of 5 eggs8800GTS XXX Edition

Pros: Very fast video card. No need to over clock or SLI as of late 2007. This card eats up all the videogames on high resolution high graphics all maxed. No problems with this card, however does run a bit hot, but with an extra “PCI card fan” to port more air card runs fine on heavy load. Installed fine in a Mid-case (Th3rm4lt4ke Tsun4mi) even with cables to multiple hard drives and other cards. Drivers now support everything and work very well with AMD drivers and updates. If you use a AMD duel core with a N-vid Motherboard this is the card for you!!!

Cons: Almost none, does not come with power converter to 6pin from 4pin. If you call XFX they will give you this cable for free via mail. Also, this came packaged with a videogame and the CDKEY for it was invalid on the case! I had to call and sorta argue with a dude who said he would not send me a new one, but I ended up getting a new one in the mail anyways without returning the bad one. They fixed all problems I encountered even though I did have to wait for the cable not knowing I had to order it ahead of time.

Other Thoughts: I bought this with a Forty Dollar mail in rebate which I would recommend you DO NOT send in! You should keep the UPC incase you want to use XFX’s double life time warranty as they will ask you to send it back to them in the box with it still on there. The Forty is not worth giving up the best RMA policy known to man. Its worth the money. Best price I found was here.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nice

Pros: 3x FPS over previous 7800GT-OC, and with all SFX maxed. XFX ships this board with highest core and memory timings of the GTS-640 bunch. You can't go wrong.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Previous reviews stated it runs hot. Its VERY hot! With no tweaking its avg 15C higher then heavily overclocked 7800, in a large server case with lots of airflow.
