3 out of 5 eggsXFX PVT80USHD9 8800 Ultra XXX Edition

Pros: Fastest Factory overclocked card

Cons: Would Freeze up 3DMark2006 after about 20 minutes. When I underclocked the Core from 685 to 675 it would loop 3DMark2006 for 24 hours without any problems. I replaced the stock thermal paste and tape with Artic Silver 5 but only stable when I underclocked the core down to 675

Other Thoughts: Before you think my power supply or cooling is not enough...
CPU:QX6800
Graphics: 2 XFX 8800 Ultra XXX edtion in SLI
Case:CoolerMaster Stacker 830 with 3 x 120 mm fans on side grill
Power Supply:1200 W Thermaltake Toughpower
Heatsink: Thermalright Ultra120 Extreme with Panaflow fan
Monitor: 30" Samsung SyncMaster 305T

4 out of 5 eggsI retract my previous thoughts

Pros: Great speed - once you have the cooling taken care of

Cons: Became unstable after a couple of weeks. The thermal paste and tape that is used is just not good enough. Card performed well on stock cooling for a few weeks, then I started experiencing crashes after gaming for awhile.

Other Thoughts: I got a Thermalright HR03 Plus, some copper ramsinks, Arctic Silver 5 and thermal epoxy and a 92mm Panaflo fan and now this thing rocks. I can get it up to 720/1200 with this setup and the crashes are a thing of the past. I would suggest aftermarket cooling if you plan on running this card. Once you take care of that, it is a thing of beauty.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Amazing speed on this card. Also, if you've ever seen/used an 8800 GTX, this card is actually much cooler/quieter than the 8800 GTX. With regards to speed, the numbers speak for themselves.

Cons: XFX used a nasty thermal paste (might be standard for other companies) on all of the chips, which was a pain to clean off to get both cards set up for a swiftech stealth waterblock.

Other Thoughts: This isn't XFX's fault, but definitely my biggest complaint: if you intend to buy an NVidia card, especially if you want SLI, consider sticking to XP. NVidia's current support for Vista is absolutely horrible and it will ruin the excitement of buying a nice shiny new Ultra for you :(

5 out of 5 eggsHeat problem

Pros: As with anything that requires lots of amps, will get hot if their not getting it. Thermaltake and Nvidia have a small extra power supply just for vid cards and they fit in a 5 1/2 drive case. It puts off a total of 42 amps at 12 volts and connects to your main psu for on and off snc. I have 4 bays so it didn't matter if I lost 2 for these. no more problems of rebooting and shutting down.

Cons: Only 2 dongles per psu. You need 2 of these for sli. Do not mix your dongles. 1 psu 1 vid card.
Also the psu's pull their own power from AC, leaving your main to do other things

3 out of 5 eggs??? Why $ so high?

Pros: Best DX9 game graphic display out there. Better than 2x GTS. Top of the line price for a top of the line machine.

Cons: It won't paid for college. For this price why isn't it 1gb of memory or more stream processor. Benchmark increases, but I guarantee you won't get any wow effect anymore than the GTX.

Other Thoughts: Poor folk, nothing to c here. This is just an overclocked version of GTX. You can overclock your GTX and slap a Ultra sticker on it and make better use of your money.

4 out of 5 eggsStability Issues??

Pros: Fast and stable

Cons: price

Other Thoughts: I don't know how everyone is having such stability problems with this card & I wonder if they have a beefy enough PSU to handle it. XFX recommends 650 Watts for this monster. Mine has been running constantly in a case with mediocre ventilation for days with many continuous hours of gaming. Yeah, it runs hot, but NOT ONE CRASH. I use a PC P&C Silencer 750.

5 out of 5 eggsoverheats but still rocks

Pros: The fastest video card avialable. Good frame rates at 2560x1600. Absolutely unbeatable.

Cons: Stock heatsink/fan is inadequate for 3d. Unstable when gaming even in a reasonably well-ventilated case (Antec 900 with two SATA hard-drives in the bottommost bays (away from the card), cables neatly bundled, and the 4 stock case fans on medium or low). Borderline stable in an air-conditioned room with all case fans on high, an adjacent slot fan, and an added side fan blowing air directly at it.

Other Thoughts: I'm ordering a Thermalright HR-03 Plus VGA Cooler and a SilenX IXP-64-14B 92mm fan. Hopefully this review will spare others from learning the hard way that this is necessary. Make sure your case has room for the card plus an extra heatsink and fan. An Antec 900 with an Asus SLI delux motherboard does have room, but forget about SLI ... there is only enough room for one ... and also don't plan to install hard drives in the bays directly in front of the card.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast cards.

Cons: Very hot, much to hot for stock cooling. Cards don't stay stable for long.

Other Thoughts: Couldn't pass up on this price ;)

4 out of 5 eggsIf you've gotta have the best...

Pros: First, XFX is now shipping these cards at 685 MHz core. It's the fastest video card available right now. Period.

Cons: REALLY pricey. It's impossible to tell anyone that buying this card was a wise decision when an OC'd GTX will perform within a few % it for far less $. XFX does not include much of a bundle with the card.

Other Thoughts: Value is truly the only thing keeping me from giving it 5 eggs. I wish I had the cash to SLI a couple of these and play with that for awhile but you know the 9800 will wipe the floor with that setup when it comes out so as hard as one of these cards is to justify, I can't see getting 2 unless you're obscenely wealthy.
