XFX took the already superb 8800GT GPU and added a cooling system from Zalman to increase the cards efficiency while keeping it even quieter. They loaded 512MB of GDDR3 memory onto the card so you can easily handle today's games. Of course if that isn't enough juice you can add another card in SLI mode.

All that power drives the Lumenex engine for lightning fast anti-aliasing and HDR Lighting for stunning realism. The Quantum Effects Technology utilizes advanced shader processors to deliver an entirely new level of physics effects that are rendered on the GPU leaving the CPU free to run the game engine and the AI.

The built in PureVideo HD Technology was specifically designed to enhance your HD experience. Built in hardware decode acceleration of H.264, VC-1, WMV and MPEG-2 HD and SD movies provides a theater-like experience. The HDCP compliant dual-link DVI ports allow you to play your HD-DVD and Blu-ray discs.

4 out of 5 eggsgood but hot

Pros: runs fast, eats up pretty much anything i throw at it, have 2 in sli, not 2 zalmans though only 1

Cons: runs hot, especially in sli. i have a xfx superclocked at 640mhz and this zalman at 600mhz, at idle i am at about 49C under load its about 55C-60C depending on the game, my room is pretty cool too never above 75F

Other Thoughts: overall a great card especialy if you have sli, runs hot but im going to liquid cool so not a big deal

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome card! Awesome price!

Pros: I purchased this card to run AOC on high settings, if not maxed. I usually get >25-30FPS with highest settings at 1600x1200. So far it has worked without any problems at all (except the game has its fair share of bugs/glitches that need to be worked out). The card seems to be built very well, the heat sink and fan setup by Zalman works awesome. Overclocking to 700/1000 runs as stable as factory presets and temps have never gone over 60C under load according to Nvidia's software. The card's fan is so quiet that it is overshadowed by everything else in the computer, whereas my old 7900gs was so loud I could barely hear games without headphones. I would highly recommend this card to anyone that wants a higher end card at a budget price.

Cons: None really. The only thing I can think of, is that it's very tempting to overclock this card since temps don't rise very much to squeeze those few extra frames out. Once again though, if you are even semi-conservative with the oc'ing there won't be any problems.

Other Thoughts: Setup: Intel E6600 CPU, 3GB DDR2 PC-5300, XFX 8800GT (my most prized piece now!), 320GB 7200RPM HD, etc.. As one can see it really doesn't take a beast of a computer to run AOC on the highest settings with this card.

5 out of 5 eggsLow price = nice card

Pros: Great price plus a rebate, transferable lifetime warranty, quiet cooler.

Cons: No RAM heatsinking, doesn't vent outside the case.

Other Thoughts: This was the best price for an 8800GT, before the rebate. Assuming that comes through (and I have no reason to doubt it), getting this much video card for so little cash is amazing. I'm coming from a 6800 NU AGP/Athlon 2500+ system, so being able to ramp all my games' settings up is nice.
However, I still wish the cooler vented heat outside the case, instead of recirculating it inside. I used an Antec 300, so the PSU sits down there, but I installed the side 120mm fan to help out.
Still, the GPU hasn't topped 60C after 2 hours of Halo 2 on high settings, so the cooling is working.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Promt refund by Newegg!

Cons: After install the computer crashed and smell of burnt plastic. I was not able to turn on computer afterwards. Power blinked on and off. Called XFX tech support and they confirmed it was defective.

More waiting and had to pay for shipping.

Newegg out of stock hence the refund.

Manufacturer Response:

Please email me your RMA number so I can look into this and ensure it is taken care of very quickly (Neweggsupport@xfxforce.com).

5 out of 5 eggsResults may vary

Pros: It's less noisy than my storage hard-drives 4 feet away. From the other reviews, it seems like there may be some kinks, but like all newegg products, if it doesn't work as advertised contact customer service. I've gotten in the habit of immediately resetting the heat-sinks on cards with arctic silver, but I decided to install this card, check the temp lvls and see if it needed any tinkering. It runs plenty cool under full-load (58c) and 34c at idle. I have a zalman fan on my cpu, very respectable company.

Cons: It's long, a lot of people have been saying this about all the 8800 gt cards, so I guess this isn't much of a con if it's a necessary property of the card. It was cheap, but the mail-in-rebate could be an issue for some.

Other Thoughts: The 8xxx series is still the best in price-points, and will remain so for the foreseeable future. If you're not sure which card to get and don't feel like spending a ton for a good card with a healthy life ahead of it, go with this card.

1 out of 5 eggsGarbage 8800gt

Pros: N/A

Cons: Dead On Arrival. Never Worked.
I tried it on 2 different PC's and the same results FAILURE !
I will never buy another XFX product again!
I will Highly advise potential buyers to do the
same, unless you dont mind broken cards.

Other Thoughts: sent it in for a refund, beacuse dont want the risk of getting another bad card

Manufacturer Response:

The motherboards did not have a VIA chipset did they? Via chipsets can have issues with PCI-e 2.0 cards.

3 out of 5 eggsToo Loud

Pros: Well it is a cheap 8800 GT to match up. Runs fine.

Cons: This ZALMAN fan is actually louder than the stock XFX 8800 fan. I am running them side by side for SLI and it just hums away. My system used to be quiet. Thinking of retuning for the stock.

Other Thoughts: SLI is nice but dual screen is a pain. Buyer beware.

Manufacturer Response:

That Zalman fan should me much quieter then then normal 8800GT. Please ensure the fan is not making contact with the heat sink and if you still have problems please contact our support staff at www.xfxforce.com.
