5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME

Pros: Easy install, no compatibility problems, performs SUPERBLY!

Cons: Huge card - make sure you've got room in your case!

Other Thoughts: I bought two of these for my Asus SLI board specifically to play F.E.A.R. - they get the job done with flying colors!

5 out of 5 eggsLots of Card for the dollar

Pros: Lots of memory, fast, with a large memory interface for less than I have paid for many others. Tom's Hardware rated this puppy very well and I have to say I am glad I went with it.

Cons: Nvidia's latest "browser window" setup for their driver interface is not all that great.

Price hasn't dropped much in a year! *wink* I am looking at adding a second one and they are still close to $200.

Other Thoughts: I have been very impressed with what this card can handle and looking forward to running it in a pair. Read not to expect much more than a 35% increase in proformance with doing the SLI thing.

5 out of 5 eggsFAST great quality

Pros: Great card, excellent value for the “Gamer” or “Graphic Designer”. Has everything you could need without paying over $200. Card can be extremely over clocked with utilities. Temp is idle at 50˚-51˚ C in intensive graphic use never over 54˚ C.

Cons: Nothing. Just be careful over clocking...do in small steps and watch the temperature.

Other Thoughts: I'm using only one card right now and will get another in near future.

5 out of 5 eggsEXCELENT!!!

Pros: This is an excellent video card! I strongly reccomend it!
I run it with my athlon 3500+ and 1 gig of RAM. It handles high graphics games like a dream! No pixelation and no picture splicing! (Maybe its my LCD monitor), but i have'nt had ANY video problems whatsoever with this card!

Cons: The diver CD crashes my computer and gives me the blue screen of death every time. No worries though, it works if you disable the autorun and manually search for the drivers. It also sucks alot of my power from my power supply, so i am buying another one.

Other Thoughts: It took awhile to ship because of my timing.(It was the weekend)
The Price is understandable...
NEWEWGG ROCKS!

5 out of 5 eggsExtremly Pleased

Pros: It runs the latest games on very high settings. I have experienced none of the heat problems others have discussed. I also have no problem with the fan being loud. It may be that I have it in the new LAN Boy Case. Everything seems quiet with that case.

Cons: I wish it would come down in price so I could justify picking up a second one so I could set up SLI.

5 out of 5 eggsVery good card!

Pros: Very stable card, runs my games very well at high settings (battlefield 2, half life 2, black and white 2, call of duty 2 etc.) Has great detail and smooth running

Cons: The fan is really loud. too loud to seem normal. I'm not sure if i got a bad card or if it is just loud...

It does run pretty hot, but doesn't seem to really effect anything.

Other Thoughts: Just so people know if they don't already this card is huge! it almost reaches my hardrive bays.

I also get some weird chirping sound when i play intense graphics. i guess it activates from HDR or some other 3D app. I baught a new heatsink and i havn't noticed the sound since, but i did check the fan before and it wasn't that.

another note is to make sure you plug both molex connectors into the external power plug. i wasn't sure before but you do add plug in both molex connectors.

4 out of 5 eggsFry An Egg

Pros: It has pretty good frames per second. I have it on sli and i had i believe somewhere around 145-170 fps on CounterStrike Source for on the little test thingy.It is still highly overclockable even when it comes factory overclocked, u can tweak it a bit more. I have mine at 500/1150. But i believe many other people can easily go over that.

Cons: If you don't have this thing watercooled or have something to cool it pretty well, you can make breakfast on this thing. I'm running on watercooling with Swiftech and im still getting core temperature readings of 42C surfing the net and 46-50 playing a game. I mean, Swiftech's the best stuff u can get out there. Its probably the problem with the chip itself.

Other Thoughts: Some people say that the 7600gt performs better than this card and it runs cooler. Plus the core/mem clock is higher by so much and it costs a bit lower. When u overclock the 7600gt, it could probably leave this card in dust.
