Still not a card to be taken lightly 05/20/2008
I bought this card back around December of '06 for around 750 bucks off Newegg. Since then, I've thrown every single title I could in an attempt to hold this baby down, and nothing short of Crysis on max settings makes this card sweat. HL2 on max it caps out at around 240FPS using their video test. Even after all that time, this card is still among the best out there, and will be for a while longer.
Size...it's a fatty, and it also runs a little hot. Make sure you have good ventilation and plenty of fans to move air around. Keeping an eye on your case and cleaning out any dust that could sufficate it is a must. I've owned the card for about a year and a half, and a couple of weeks ago the memory finally gave out. Never overclocked, just one of those things that happens in nature, but thanks to BFG's warranty it's nothing more than a nuissance. 5 minutes of speaking to a rep and I was on my way to getting a replacement. Just waiting on a refurb or a new one to arrive at my doorstep.
I plan on buying a second one to run in SLi soon...
