Comments: Despite the lack in acessories, this card is the best for its price, full lifetime warranty if you register on XFX website, can't beat that at all!

5 out of 5 eggsweeee

Comments: I was a little worried at first, because I had my heart set on an eVGA 6800GT, and I hadn't heard much about XFX. But I decided to go ahead with it being that it was the only AGP 6800GT in stock at the time, and I don't regret it one bit. After I had it for a month or so, I started to over clock. The card I got performed really well. I have gotten it up to 440Mhz on the core and 1.17Ghz on the mem. Couple this with my Athlon 64 system, and you have a winner.

4 out of 5 eggs

Comments: Despite what Kiyo wrote, it is compatible with the NForce3 chipset. It seems to work fine on my DFI Lanparty3, however, even with a 500w PSU, my computer now loves to freeze up ever since I installed the card. Seems to be ok while playing games though as I've had no crashes or lock ups while actually playing something. It's only while my computer is sitting idle does it act the fool. Not the most reliable video card technology (I blame Nvidia) but man, do my games look pretty. I can deal with the annoyance until I upgrade a year from now.

5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: If you're looking for a high-end 8x AGP gfx card, look no further. This card's preformance in my 3.2 GHz Prescott HT rig is stellar.
Also, the cooling on this card is exceptional. It never goes above 55 C when playing UT2004 (not o/c).

5 out of 5 eggsfantastic card

Comments: I completely disagree with statments about this card, im running a dfi lan party board with nforce 3 chipset and i can run every game fine and dandy, i think that guy has issues.... ne way yea i completely love this card huge jump from my gf3 ti 200... that goes without saying though haha, well i push around 5000 marks on 3dmark 05 with no card overclocking with a AMD sempron 3100+(oc'd to 2.5ghz from 1.8)
and a gig of ram. i reccomend it to ne one that has a brain and needs to keep their agp mobo for a while longer

4 out of 5 eggsGood card, runs warm

Comments: I upgraded from a Radeon 9500/9700 Pro to this. It runs considerably better, and probably runs about the same temperature, as my old card did (it did not have a temperature probe on it). I have a fan blowing on it, pointed mostly at the RAM because you could not touch that part beforehand, and it still runs about 57C idle, and can get rather hot under loads (>68C). I will upgrade the heatsink later, but I believed that NVidia would have provided a better heatsink stock.

On a side note, I have an ABIT IS7-E and there are several capacitors that are very close to the clip for the AGP port, and it very hard to remove this card unless you have tiny hands. I also had to remove the aluminum side-plate when putting it into my new case (Thermaltake XASER). Still a good upgrade from what I had.

1 out of 5 eggsNot Compatable with Nforce3 Chipset!

Comments: This card is COmpletely Incompatable with ||||NVIDIA'S||||| Nforce3 Chipset! IT won't work at all in d3d games Unless you severely Underclock your comp and turn off AGP fast writes.. Even then it acts up now and then..

Only buy this if you aren't running an Nforce3 or want it to Stutter/freeze up once every 5 seconds.

4 out of 5 eggsArtifacts in Call of Duty?

Comments: Got this card quickly from Newegg, as always! It is faster than my old GeForce Ti4600, but not as dramatic as I'd hoped, given how many more bagillion texels/sec it can paint, etc.

I have a question for you guys overclocking, etc... I getting artifacts in Call of Duty UO, even running at stock MHZ levels. Do you up the voltage to get the card more stable? My BIOS is defaulting to power the card at 1.55v, and I'm wondering if I need to change this.

My system is:
P4 2.7mhz
XFX GeForce 6800GT 256MB, Nvidia 77.77 Forceware drivers
1GB PC3200 RAM
Abit IS-7 MB
CL Audigy2 ZS soundcard

Thanks for any help/tips!

5 out of 5 eggsI am very impressed.

Comments: I am VERY impressed. I jacked up a few bucks, and replaced my Saphire 9600XT. Now, I can play just about every game out at the moment, at NEARLY maxed graphical settings, all aside maybe SOME shading options and AF, even aside that, NEVER drop below 40, ever. Even in big, disgusting, bloody boom-boom fights. I. Love. Nvidia. The only problem are the minor hicups, but only because of some cheap, nameless brand of RAM I use. I am looking to get myself 2 GB of Corsairs XMS RAM. Can't wait to see how that pairs with my 3500+ and this card.

Newegg, I want to have your baby.

4 out of 5 eggsthings aren't what they used to be.

Comments: What I found with my 6800GT were two things:

1. For games crashing I had to experiment with old drivers. Look at what drivers your game supports if they are listed.

2. Rebooting seems to be caused by an insufficient amount of power. Make sure *all* your devices are independently connected to rails out of your PSU. In other words don't use *ANY* Y connections from your PSU for *any* device (including your video card). There should only be one device connected to a given wire coming out of your PSU. My 430 Watt Antec (truepower?) is working fine after I did this with 2 Drives connected, I have yet to connect any more drives, but I suspect it will work if I follow the above guidelines (assuming I have enough rails).

This is a good card but things arent like they used to be. The power consumption and noise is very different from my old 9600 pro. I don't know much about drivers but I am guessing they are starting to get too complex.

After stabalizing this card after some serious troubleshooting it is working great. I am getting 140 FPS in counter strike source on my 3.2 ghz. And I can run every video option in everquest except I choose to turn off shadows because it does lower my fps somewhat.
