5 out of 5 eggsI like it enough to buy another

Pros: Excellent performance, low price, HDMI port. I bought this one for a computer that I'll build next week and am I'm testing it this week in one of my other computers.

I already have one another Zotac 9800 GT (the model with two DVI ports and no HDMI) in one of my two computers; it's a great card.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: One thing isn't well documented about this and some other Zotac 9800GT cards: you can get HDMI audio from it using a DVI port with a DVI-HDMI adaptor. This card comes with the special internal cable you need to connect the card to the motherboard, but Zotac cards w/o the HDMI port doesn't come with the cable even though the card has the internal connector. The cable is not the standard 2 pin. You need to order a "3Pin nVIDIA Video Graphics Card HDMI SPDIF Audio Cable". I found one on a well known auction website for my other Zotac 9800GT, which doesn't have the HDMI port but can transmit audio through DVI when this cable is used.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Cheap, compact - fit very well in my small case. Got this card to replace my 9500GT and I'm very pleased. The difference is like night and day.

Stays pretty cool - idles at ~53C and it only gets up to ~68C when gaming and has handled everything I've thrown at it (WoW on Ultra, Metro 2033, TF2, SC2).

Ultra quiet - my PC is in a pretty small room and I can't even tell it's on.

Cons: The only fault I can find is that the DC cables it came with to connect the card to my mobo feel really cheap and flimsy to the point where I'm afraid they could fall out.

Other Thoughts: If you're like me and needed a budget-upgrade for your rig, you can't go wrong with this card.

Other info-
Currently running with 4gig ram, AMD Phenom Quad-Core 2.3ghz, 530W PSU

4 out of 5 eggsMultiple Displays/types

Pros: Gaming is not my thing.Multi-media, HTPC is. I have #1 Dell 24"/DVI #2 Samsung 52"/HDMI #3 NEC DLP projector/VGA #4 NEC DLP projector /VGA. Two of these cards were able to fit my needs for the way I use the displays. ATI could not. Adding a HDMI connection as a secondary moniter can be tricky

Cons: Heat. With the amazing performance comes heat. Added VGA cooling to the case. Needed that anyway.
SLI is not available with multiple monitors. The annoying preference of computers to make any HDMI connection the Primary Display.

Other Thoughts: Though I keep my Dell as Primary Display, I do not see bootup on my Dell, making BIOS changes a pain. All because of HDMI. If I change the HDMI to a VGA connection I have none of these issues with any video card. When I replace my Primary Display(Dell) I will go for an HDMI connected device and see if this resolves some issues

5 out of 5 eggsInconcievably awesome

Pros: Pulls it's weight beautifully in Fallout 3 and Mass Effect 2, offering rather high FPS (haven't actually checked yet, but looks way better than before). Virtually silent, I can't even tell the fan is going with my case open, granted, I have 4 chassis fans running, so I can't hear a whole lot. No LED's, which is a bonus for me because an orange LED would not go well with my all-blue scheme here. Also, comes with HDMI which will go perfectly with the monitor I don't have yet. Lastly, it's low profile meaning I won't waste valuable space for some fancy shmancy cooler.

Cons: I really can't think of anything at all. It's been very good to me so far, as lame as it is to not have any cons to post.

Other Thoughts: My plan is to get some crazy Radeon so I can run it as my main GPU, and using this card as a dedicated PhysX processor later down the road using some tricks I've found around the web. That's one reason a low profile card is nice; it'll free up the lower PCI Express slot so I can use that for something if need be, and it will give a little breathing room between this card and the PSU (mounted at the bottom of my Antec 902). As it stands, this card is a rather nice placeholder for the roid-raging card I want later.

When I got the package, I half expected the only thing between my box and the UPS box to be a piece of butcher paper, much like what happened with my HDD. However, they went the extra mile and actually used packing peanuts. Much appreciated, guys.

Great purchase, good job Zotac, and good job Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsGeForce 9800GT

Pros: I purchased 2 of these for 2 of my computers. On my Dell Dimension 8400 (2004), I replaces a NVIDIA 6800 with this card. My Win7 (32) graphics scores increased from 5.5 to 6.6 and 4.4 to 6.6. On my Cybertronics PC, I replaced an ATI HD4550. My Vista (64) graphics scores went from 5.2 to 5.9 and 5.2 to 5.9. So far both cards are running ok. The heat range is in the low to mid 60's. Now I dont play games except Final Fantast XI on both PCs. The Dell is mainy used for my personal stuff and the Cypertronics is hooked up to a 52" HDTV for games only via HDMI cable. Graphics are great on both. ZOTAC provides you with a program (Firestorm) to adjust the card's speed (Overclocking).

Cons: You have to use the SPDIF cable (provided) to get audio out on your HDMI port (no built in audio interface that gets audio thru the PCIx16 connector) So if u dont have SPDIF pins on your mother board or audio card, you may be outa luck with audio thru the HDMI.

Other Thoughts: My Dell only has a 350W power supply. I contacted ZOTAC and they said it would be fine as the card only uses 42W of power. You have to use the SPDIF cable provided to get audio out on your HDMI port. You just connect it to the card and then to the SPDIF pins on you motherboard or card. Updating the drivers was very easy, just go to ZOTAC site or NVIDIA's site.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card!

Pros: Low power consumption, great price, a huge step up from my 7950gt

Cons: Not a fault of the card, but bottlenecks like hell on my amd 4600+, and now I have to upgrade that, too. Oh well.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat product

Pros: I've had one for over a month now, and all my games run smoothly and play on high quality, YES!
It's very silent, i could up plug it's fan if i wanted to make is completely silent but i don't think i can hear it now
I got a 2nd one for SLI and it works ( I need to learn a little bit more about SLI)
The 2nd one let me hook up a 3rd monitor which is fantasic, I love the extra desktop space.

Cons: I don't think so

Other Thoughts: not a con so; I had some issue with the SLI in the beginning but that was really my fault

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome graphics - low power draw

Pros: So nice when you can buy these slightly out of date GPUs that have been built on smaller dies than original and therefore sip power and don't get hot.
Only pulls something like 45 watts at full load!
Puts out very little heat.
Plays GTA4 and similar games at max settings without breaking a sweat.
Does not require any dedicated power at all.

Cons: Could have been made fanless pretty easily and then would have been bullet proof with no fan to wear out.

Other Thoughts: Great choice for smaller form factor cases or when you don't have a monster power supply because it uses so little power.
