5 out of 5 eggsIt Rocks!!

Pros: I've had the card in a week now. Slapped the 84.21 drivers on, and the card has ran my games flawlessly. A huge improvement over my 5900 Ultra.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Started to buy the 7800GS. After reading about all the problems with that card I decided on this card. Honestly it performs better than I expected. A lot of FPS bang for the buck!

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Card - AGP Lives!

Pros: Very good performance, nice copper heatsink, unlocked easily, ran looping 3D06 for 8 hours no problems, got hot but not dangerously so, factory overclocked

Cons: Card is somewhat long so check clearance, noise is noticeable but not objectionable, could run a little cooler

Other Thoughts: I was thinking of retiring my 845 AGP setup but since I got this card I am going to squeeze another year out of it

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great card, doubled performance in my AGP system. At least 2x faster than my ATI 9800 PRO. 3dmark scores were much higher.

Cons: The card was much longer than my older one - so I had to move some other hardware around. It took me about an hour to get it working right - you must use the beta drivers or the you cannot get the card to work properly.

Other Thoughts: Very happy Customer, thanks newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card for Price Range

Pros: Card runs flawlessly, was even able to overclock it slightly more than the factory overclock. However, your really not gonna milk too much more performance outta it so to me there's no point. (I do however suggest you unlock the last 4 pixel pipelines and extra shader. That really helped boost performance noticebly) Games run beautifully at moderate - moderately high gfx settings depending on your cpu. Def recommendation if your on a budget.

Cons: I can't say I really have any esp. at this price range. Like I said above, the card is basically an Ultra, you just have to manually make it so.

Other Thoughts: I def recommend this card if your not willing to shell some extra doe for the 7 series agp.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: Very Fast! An extreem improvement over my last card. I was able to unlock the rest of the pipes and shader. Another thing that was nice it is technicaly the over clocked version GS CO its 400 core and 1100 mhz mem speed.

Cons: No cons for me but to ppl that have a small pc case you might wanna consider a different card or another case.

4 out of 5 eggsGet it!

Pros: This video card is phenominal, I have it overclocked to 420/1200
and unlocked 6 vertics an 6 pixel pipelines with little artifacts, No game stands a chance of bogging it down F.E.A.R, quake 4, Doom3, Call of duty2 All maxed out with AA all the way up 7800's are just overkill......For now.

Cons: Not really a con but you have to use the beta drivers

Other Thoughts: Athlon64 3200 @ 2.2ghz
2x1gb corsair ram
6800gs @ 420/1200 unlocked through riva tuner

3 out of 5 eggsCrashed system multiple times

Pros: Out performs my friends 7800gt in fps on FEAR. Runs Oblivion. Looks cool . . .

Cons: Artifacts in many places. Will stop PC randomly in games for about 10 seconds. After second day it crashed after about 20 minutes of running even something as simple as FFXI or jedi academy. Runs warm (68f) and raises case temp to 35c.

Other Thoughts: I have an MSI mobo with the intel 865 chipset. 1g ram, 2.8g P4. latest drivers for AGP as well. Also, when i first installed it, it knocked my audigy off and my computer didn't have a sound card. Only after installing its newest drivers did my sound card return. It was also hard to seat into my motherboard, but that may just be isolated, since my ram literally takes about 400psi to get to seat. It might have something to do with my powersupply, so I'll update this review after that. As of right now . . . upgrade your mobo and get an sli 7600gt which is cheaper and avoid EVGA. This is my second card from them that has done this initially. The last card (gf FX5600) did the same thing until I started using the 5500's drivers. In my case, this 6800 is large and ruins airflow unless I have an entire side of my chasis off.
