5 out of 5 eggsGreat Last-Stand for AGP

Pros: Great card for the money, AGP, much faster memory compared to other 7600GS cards, Solid capacitors (higher quality electronic components), power splitter and s-video cable included.

Cons: Longer than my 6600GT.

Other Thoughts: Other 7600GS cards may have 512 memory, but they are running 533mhz ram - this is 800mhz. Very nice upgrade from my 6600GT. Great price point - next faster card is the 7800gs which is almost double the price. This will be my last AGP card.

5 out of 5 eggsNice card for the money

Pros: No issues. Fast card for the money. No driver issues and NVidea display software is cool.
Doesn't overheat.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I don't need the best card, just one that drives all my software without slowing down. Performance vs cost is very high.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Video Card

Pros: For the price, this video card can't be beat. EVGA has done it again. Easily installed, just requires an extra 4 prong power plug; the same that is used on HDD's, cd drives, etc. Very quiet and very fast refresh rates. Have always purchased ATI based cards in the past. This is my first Geforce and I have no regrets.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: For a truly great card at a less than $200 price tag.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Upgrade for AGP

Pros: The card is all that it claims and then some. Perfect for maximizing your AGP setup. Ran good in all games including BF2/30-40fps, CSS/60-70fps, and HL2/40-50fps, all on medium-high settings. Step-up program that eVGA offers. Lifetime warranty.

Cons: ran a little warm in my case. Idled around 45C and ran at around 52C under load.

Other Thoughts: I only have a 4X Agp slot on my mobo. If you are looking to upgrade, it may be time to concede and go with PCI Express.

Pros: Plugged in to AGP slot

Played COD2 flawlessly
$$

Cons: The box did not come with the case sticker, despite it stating it did.

Other Thoughts: Great card for the money, not the best but unless your bill gates most of us cannot afford the top of the line card.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: Easy to install, Runs fairly quiet even under heavy gaming.

Cons: Underclocked in comparison to the 7800GT.

Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm once again a satisfied customer with both NewEgg and eVGA. The card will handle most of your gaming needs if you still have a AGP 4x/8x slot on your mobo. If you plan on running all of the latest games on highest settings, however, I suggest getting the 7800GS instead. The lower clock on this card suffers if you are playing on max settings for the upcoming new games and today's new games.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible Card

Pros: Newegg's RMA process.

Cons: Video flickers on and off very inconstantly. Sometimes it works for hours, other times it will not produce a display at all. Have to reboot many times just to get video. I've got plenty of power with an Antec TruePower 550 watt PS and clean power into my rig. Latest drivers did nothing. Emailed that eVGA rep who posted his email but it bounced as he refuses to receive from anyone he doesn't know (nice, dude...) Emailed eVGA asking to forward my email to this guy for the "bios update" (which is nowhere on their support site) and heard nothing in two weeks! I'm done with this nasty card. RMA # in hand and Newegg is the best.

Other Thoughts: Excelent card...but make sure your makeing the right investment.

5 out of 5 eggsThanks Newegg

Pros: Great card, runs very quiet and plays all the games I want to play on high: F.E.A.R., Battlefield 2, HL2, CS:S and WoW on my aging system and comes with a Lifetime warranty from EVGA. Package racieved in 2 days ground shipping from UPS, i was impressed. Thanks Newegg.

Cons: None realy except didnt come with any free software, but cant complain cause its a solid card.

Other Thoughts: Make sure you have a better than average power supply to run the card, you have to plug the graphics card right into the power supply. it suggests having atleast a 400 Watt.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Card

Pros: Fairly fast and quiet. The speeds are good (400mhz core/800mhz memory). It runs very cool. In my system it idles at 45 - 48c and usually stays at 58 - 61c under a full load. It's definitely a great card if you are wanting to get another year or so out of your AGP system. Mine is already 2 1/2 years old. This is my first eVGA card, but so far I'm very impressed with the quality and support.

Cons: It does cost more than the PCI-e version. And there still aren't official drivers out (but they should be here soon).

Other Thoughts: This is a very good mid-range card and it's a GeForce 7. It can run CoD2/Doom3/Quake4/HL2 on high settings with a solid frame rate. My 3dMark scores also doubled (previous card was a GeForce 6600). Just make sure your power supply meets the proper requirements (especially the +12 volt current).
