5 out of 5 eggsLoved It

Pros: Did everything it needed to. Used it for 4 years before it died. Played some serious games for the time without issue.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: First card I ever bought that was considered a beast at the time. Last a long time, and never gave me issues.

1 out of 5 eggsRidiculous

Pros: Decent speed, you get what you pay for, mostly.

Cons: Fan had to be replaced. Ok, no problem I contact XFX as suggested by Newegg customer service and the other reviews. Within 3 weeks of replacing the fan and finally getting it running, the card breaks down and everything including the desktop has artifacts. I contact Newegg, they can't replace it. I open a ticket with XFX and unlike with the fan, they are now extremely slow at responding.

Word to the wise, if you ever want to get help from Newegg, NEVER get manufacturer's help, always return it first.

Other Thoughts: Worst buy ever on Newegg, in retrospect at least.

Manufacturer Response:

I am sorry to hear that this has happened. If you would, please email me your support ticket number at neweggsupport@xfxforce.com so that I can look in on your case. Thank you.

5 out of 5 eggsBeautiful

Pros: It's a beautiful card. Runs games smoothly on my HDTV with no hitches on the max settings (which is at 1080 resolution since my TV won't go higher).

Cons: I don't know why everyone is constantly complaining about how big the nicer video cards are, it's just standard that cards are bigger nowadays. Jst make sure you have a case that accommodates that. I got a fairly small SIGMA La Vie case and I can fit it in there with no problems and plenty of air circulation. Newegg link to my case: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811226027

Other Thoughts: I'll be buying another one of these to SLI when I gather up some extra cash again. :)

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Bundle

Pros: Bundle included Company of Heroes, driver disc (outdated, but nonetheless helpful), 4-pin-to-6-pin PCI-e power cable adapter, 2 HDMI-to-VGA converters, HDTV cable. Runs TF2 all settings on high at 40-60 fps. Runs WoW all settings on high in major cities at 30ish fps, maxing in smaller zones around 120fps. Oblivion is absolutely beautiful.

Cons: Long card. Almost the length of my motherboard, be prepared to move some cables/hard drives if you have a small case.

Small fan. The fan does not seem to be moving that much air, so make sure you have good ventilation. I would have prefered a double-slot card just for the better cooling.

Other Thoughts: I plan on getting a second one once prices drop a bit more to run in SLI.

2 out of 5 eggstoo loud

Pros: Have two of these xfx cards and run sli. Had no problem until I purchased a third card from newegg...

Cons: No fan control and very loud. I can't even begin to hear the 9700 Zalman fan over the noise generated by the new 8800 gt. I am going to return.

Other Thoughts: What happened to QC. The first two cards from XFX perform as expected, purchase a third and it is a wind tunnel?

Manufacturer Response:

That fan should be adjustable, if not please start a support ticket at www.xfxforce.com and we can help.

5 out of 5 eggsXFX Rocks

Pros: Well where to start. This card rocks. I have no issues with lag on any of the new games, WoW is a constant 60 fps, Crysis was around 30 fps, COD4 60fps. The only issue I have is my CPU is too slow for a large game of Sup Com. XFX Double Lifetimes their warranties. This means that you can sell the card, and THAT person has a lifetime warranty. (Make sure you register it right away). They also dont care if you overclock, mod, or put after market heatsinks on. Can't go wrong.

Cons: None. Don't have two?

Other Thoughts: There is a fan control.. not sure what the other review is talking about. The fan started @ 50% for me and I cranked it up to 100%. I'm also over clocking so that's a must.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Fast, but hot hot hot

Pros: Wow, I bought this card when it first came out (I thought 300 bucks was a steal, now it is almost half that!) and I can say it is an excellent card for the price, and you will most certainly get your money's worth. Runs almost every game maxed out. Crysis is even handled very well, although you might need to drop back the resolution.

Cons: After running very intensive games (Crysis, Company of Heroes) the card starts to heat up and the fan kicks into high gear and it becomes quite loud. I'm somewhat apprehensive about how hot the case will be if I add a second one.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this card still has ridiculously good performance, although if heating is a problem you might want to bump up to a double slot card. Shipping from newegg was fast and painless as usual :).

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast graphics, solid and proven (G92) architecture, works great

Cons: What they don't tell you is that some (seemingly not all, I've had a hard time sorting out these details) of the XFX 8800GT cards have NO fan speed control, that in fact the fan speed control wires have literally been cut in some boards. They run at a constant 100% speed, which is INCREDIBLY loud and obnoxious. If that doesn't bother you then go for this card. If not you can save yourself a headache and go for the EVGA or PNY versions.

Manufacturer Response:

That video card should have fan speed control. If not please start a support ticket at www.xfxforce.com or call 800-880-3225 and we will get it taken care of for you.
