5 out of 5 eggsCARDS OWNS

Pros: Had it for two years. It totaly owns. Of course, newer games are a bit hard on it, but for it's age it's awesome, and if you SLIed it, it would probably give a good swing at modern games.

Cons: None. When it gets dusty it gets a little loud. Just keep it clean.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome DX9 Card

Pros: Plain and simple....awesome!!! BFG and Nvidia have done it again. Using this card over a year with massive gameplay, Bioshock, S.t.a.l.k.e.r, Fear, City of Villians and now Age of Conan! Paired this bad boy with an Ageia PhysX and bam combo made in heaven. Easily OC'd and I'm always OC'd no issues with stock fan at 40%

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Duo core 2 2.13ghz, 2.5GB crucial ballistix 800mhz

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: Installed flawlessly on to an ASUS mobo running a 2.4 C2D, 2GB RAM, and Vista. Played Fear at max settings (40fps) and dropped it back maybe 5% to get a seamless 60fps. I haven't tested it against Fallout 3, but anything with teh HalfLife engine runs at top quality with fast load times.

Cons: Gone up $20 since I bought it awhile ago. Technically, the price should drop and I might consider SLI.

Other Thoughts: Wait...SLI would be waaaay overkill...

5 out of 5 eggsgreat card

Pros: An awesome card. I have owned it for two years. It has served me well without any issues whatsoever. Was a beast back then, and is still a beast.... except for of course all those insane new games =P Finally about to replace it.... kinda sad.

Cons: Did run a little hot, but never hindering performance

Other Thoughts: BFG is an awesome company. I almost RMA'd it a few months ago because of the fan not keeping it cool enough. They made it EXTREMELY easy on me. Within 5 minute I had an e-mail and RMA setup and ready for me to send. however, i got lazy and ended up deciding to build a whole new system anyways, so yeah.

3 out of 5 eggsRMA Issues

Pros: When the card was working, I was happy with it although the OEM fan should be better for what these cost.

Cons: Once the fan went out and I needed a replacement, they require you to send the card back before they will send you a new one. Most companies I've dealt with will work with you and ship the new one first so you're not without a PC for the duration. The OEM fan is sub-standard and while this is easy enough to fix, you shouldn't have to for that price.

Other Thoughts: I won't deal with EVGA again. It's not a cheap card. They don't need to cut corners with cheap parts especially if their return policy is designed to cause enough inconvenience to encourage you to just get a replacement.

1 out of 5 eggsSent as BFG RMA - still broke

Pros: This was sent as a replacement that was already replacing a defective 7900 that arrived with 2 broken capacitors, that was replacing a dead 7900. Tearing, artifacts, etc...

Cons: After 6 months it died, thought it was my mobo, then slapped in an ATi carda and tadaaaa. These cards don;t last long, and with a lifetime warranty - they're gonna be replacing theses cards monthly. gets expensive to me though.

Other Thoughts: Just sent my RMA'ed card back, hope they don't send me another lemon. Not Neweggs fault, it's BFG.

2 out of 5 eggsHorrible for the price!

Pros: It works fine, it'll run BF2 and some older more basic games just fine. I wouldn't try running anything released after '07 on med-high though. It couldn't even run COD2 on high and even COD4:MW on medium!

Cons: Horrible price + performance.
There are cards literally 5X better for less than $130!!!
I don't why people are still having to dish out $250 for an older out-of-date card. It doesn't even have stream processing units in it like all the better ones do.

Other Thoughts: Get an 8800GT or Radeon HD 3870, they only cost $120 to $150 at the most and will boost your performance way past anything this 7950GT can dish out. Don't waste your money, get a better one for over $100 cheaper! Seriously, you will regret paying so much for this card. Heck, a 2600 XT beats this card as well!

2 out of 5 eggsMeh.

Pros: When it works, it performs fine- It can keep up with pretty much anything you throw at it, with some exceptions (see below)

Cons: Runs insanely hot. Even with tuner software and the fan going 95%, she was throwin down over 110C

As a result, it's unstable as all hell. It'll run older games just fine, but anything Medieval II or later and you've gotta roll the hard six to make it work for any appreciable length of time.

Other Thoughts: When I first bought this card in '07, It was awesome. I made sure to run tuner software to keep it as cool as possible, but I could still boil water with the thing.

Regarding stability- I was running into issues with Medieval II: Total War, and tried all manner of different driver versions, patches, modded drivers- it didnt' matter. It would always crash hard with the NV4_disp error and lock the entire system up or throw it back into the glory days of EGA graphics.

Trying to run Bioshock for any length of time gave me the same issue- since moving to a Radeon 4850, I have had none of these issues.

3 out of 5 eggsWhat a waste!

Pros: Play all valve games (which don't ask for much) very well. Plays COD4 @ 1680x1050 on Highest Settings somewhat good, but have to drop to 1280 range online.

Cons: I cannot play the latest games with this card, and defintely doesn't seem to run well (or as it should). Plays crysis on low settings at 1280px range, at around 20 FPS, which SUCKS!

Other Thoughts: All I wanted to know is how other users get it to run Crysis on high settings with stock setup. I hate to play a game under 1680x1050. I have the E6600, P5B Deluxe Motherboard, 6gb of DDR2 800 RAM and that d*mn7950 GT; and YES I do have the latest drivers.
I want answers.

5 out of 5 eggsBFG & Newegg

Pros: BFG Tech is great if you ever have a problem.
I had one go out (it happens even with the best quality)
I called them and seriously, under 4 minutes had an RMA set up. No "on hold" or "transfers", just great customer service!!
If only other US business would follow BFG and Neweggs example.

Cons: It doesn't make coffee.
