5 out of 5 eggsA great buy

Pros: This card is absolutely amazing period. xfx and other companies make other overclocked cards that are gx2 but to be quite honest this card on air is very overclockable ( mine is running at 730/1800/1106.....again this is on air...not even a 3party cooler. The card also vents out alot of the air through the the dual exaust vents. This card is silent! I thought it would be alot louder while idle but my liquid cooling system is louder than this card....and my pc is very quiet. When you up the fans to about 80 then can you hear the fans.....

Cons: People complain about the size......Its a video card that is two in one card...its going to be big. If you do not have a large case then you might have problems fitting the card in. even with my full tower lcs armor case i could see how people could have problems fitting it in. I cannot really complain about the size however ( If you are a serious computer enthusiast or graphic designer it is just common sense to have a full tower case for add-ons.) I couldn't understand if you knew what this card is and had the money for this card why you wouldn't have a full tower case.

Other Thoughts: Most likely if you are upgrading to this card you will need a new power supply with an 8pin connector. There is no getting around this you can use two molex connectors and use the molex to 8 pin adapter but unless you have extra molexes just laying around then get a new psu. I want to say you need at least an 850 watt psu but to be quite honest you could run this card with anything 600 and above...under load this thing on my pc only uses like 375 watts with all my other pc stuff included too. Get a name brand psu or even a logisys psu (the green 650 one).

armor lcs fultower, asus p5nd sli motherboard, thermaltake 850w toughpower, (non modular) ( I also used the 650 logisys psu it works fine in my apevia case) Liquid cooling system (lcs) 25 cm side fan

5 out of 5 eggsNice piece!

Pros: Just completed a build using this today and I am quite impressed. Graphic performance like I've never seen before.

Cons: This thing is the size of a Buick. While that may not be a con per say, just be aware. It fit into my Antec Nine hundred case but I could easily see there being trouble in smaller cases.

Other Thoughts: My rig: Antec Nine Hundred Case, AMD Phenom 9950 Quad core CPU, Zallman CPU Cooler, Biostar TForce T8200 MoBo, GeForce 9800 GX2 1GB, NeoPower 650w PSU, 8GB OCZ Platinum DDR2 SDRAM, Western Digital 640GB HDD, Samsung DVD/R

5 out of 5 eggsJust need frosting on the cake.

Pros: Great graphics, while running games on 2560x1600 resolution on a 30 inch Widescreen monitor. Additionally, I like the card enough to buy another one 4 weeks later for SLI. The SLI runs just as well as running one card. Moreover, I'm running Age of Conan at 2560x1600 EVERYTHING MAXED OUT with EVERYTHING turned on and getting 40-50 FPS.

Cons: Drivers are still premature (June 5th, 2008 Ver. 175.16); however, the computer runs smooth for the most part, but still has some hicups on the graphical end. In my opinion, these problems will be fixed in the next couple updates, because I ran into the same problem when I got the 8800 GTX hot off the shelf.

Other Thoughts: Specs: Vista Ultimate 64-bit, 8GB DDR3 1333mhz Patriot Viper, x2 Raptors Raid 0, x2 XFX 9800 GX2 SLI, Motherboard XFX 790i Ultra SLI, 1200 Watt Coolmax PSU, Intel Q9450 2.66 @ 3.2, Zalmen Reservator XT Water Cooling

If you want the best, I would go with this card. I'm running two of them as I said in SLI and I don't regret buying them one bit.

5 out of 5 eggsBig

Pros: From everything I see about this card it should work great, one of the best cards on the market.

Cons: Big and I mean big, I wish they would have given the dimensions on this bad boy. I had to move a fan in my antec 900 case just to even have it in there.

Other Thoughts: my rig is 3.0 ghz dual core, 750 psu, 4gb ram, 9800 gx2, seagate barracuda 7500rpm

5 out of 5 eggsClose, But Not Quite

Pros: Great Card. But for the money it's not worth it. Compaired to my 9600GT(overclocked to 785/2000/1950 and flawless)

3dmark06 (at 1680X1050):
9600GT overclocked: 10400
9800 GX2: 12000
DUAL 9800 GX2: 14000
(my processor only scored 3000, quad cores will bump this section and thus the over all scores up significantly)

my rig: E6750 oc'd to 3.2ghz, 4GB 1066 OCZ ReaperX DDR2, with Vista Ultimate x64 w/SP1 on a RAID0. (note i could not get Quad SLI to work on Windows XP x64)

I my grief is mostly price. Dont get the wrong opinion, these cards are beasts in there own right. But Nvidia needs to work somethings out. What they really should have called this card is 8800 GX2 since its two 8800gts. But i guess the 8800 family has been out to long.

Cons: The heat is awful and if you run a quad SLI with two of these well, it could melt your computer. I was seeing 80C with extra fans set up to push and pull more air around these cards. Idle around 50C

these cards are HUGE and need a spacious case. I was lucky enough to have two of these to test and it was a snug fit in my Antec Performance One case.

Other Thoughts: Quad SLI did make a few games (CoD4, Frontlines) look a lot better(and max my CPU), but crysis still puts up a fight even on High settings with 2xAA. can run it on very high with 2xAA and get about the same FPS. (20-30) Also its worth noting that Crysis hardly uses my CPU. Something just doesn't add up.

For having almost $1100 worth of video I would have expected much, much more. Personally I am going to get a second 9600GT and see what less then $400 will do.

5 out of 5 eggsYes and yes again

Pros: Beautiful card. Runs Crysis on Ultra settings and highest res with no hiccups! The new 3dmark puts it at almost 15,000. Also great for photo editing. Super fast and I've seen no tearing. There some acceptable cons (see below) but if you have the money and the system to support it, BUY IT!!

Cons: Huge. This thing is a monster. Make sure you have a case that will actually hold it. I bought a Zero super cooling case and have less than a 1\4 in on the back side. Also draws a ton of power. 580 watts is recommended! I'm using a Corsair 750w. Not sure I would go much smaller. Also lots of heat, so great cooling is required. Then there's the price, but if you want the best you pay the highest.

Other Thoughts: I'm using four 120mm fans and a 80mm to keep air on it. I'm also using two 120mm fans for exaust. Runs warm but well within safe limits. Also requires a 6 AND 8 pin power connector.

5 out of 5 eggs"S" For Supper

Pros: First XFX has aways been a fine product .. This Card is no exception .. Replaced 2X 8800 GTX's .. 3dmark05 19.5K 3dmark06 13.3K same or a little better benchmark scores .. runs like a MONSTER .. ordered another 04.09 .. Vista OS, AMD 6400+, Asus m2n32 slI, 4gb Mushkin Mem, Roeswill 850W SB ... Apevia X-Jupiter case .. All purchased from Newegg... Go to Nvidia web site and download the new driver 174.74 very important!

Cons: Dumps card heat to case ... price?

Other Thoughts: Get yourself a 40mm fan (or fans if you buy two) and place them on the card air intake (rear of case) and push cool air into card also add a slot fan to push air out .. just a thought.

5 out of 5 eggsWOW

Pros: I have read so many benchmarks about this card, it is the best single video card you can buy! I havnt got to try this card yet because I dont have a 8 pin connector for it. Do not buy the dual 4 pin molex to 8 pin connector on newegg, it is for the motherboard processor only and not the video card. I still rate this card 10/10 considering it is 2 lower clocked 8800gts's on one card.

Cons: none so far, waiting for my 6 - 8 pin pci express adapter to see how this baby can perform. ( also it is not recommended to use the 6-8 pin pci express adapter as if you dont have a stable enough power supply it could cause a fire).

5 out of 5 eggsVery Nicely Done!

Pros: Packaging was ample, no damage. Card installed easily, with some small re-arrangements. I pre-planned and have more than enough power. Downloaded the latest driver, didn't bother with the CD. Looks great, all games running smoothly on ultra high graphics settings.

Cons: Card does run hot, but with good airflow it doesn't seem to be a problem so far. Half-life 2 and Portal show some horizontal tearing with the latest drivers.

Other Thoughts: I'm not sure about dual monitor support. I only have a single monitor on the system currently, but when I try and use the second DVI port it doesn't work. Not sure if it is the video drivers or the hardware, but I'm betting it's the drivers.
