5 out of 5 eggsBest for the Money

Pros: The card is very good at all at precise equipment you can overclocked this baby at the full capacity i am in 500/1400 overcloaked with 120 FPS on Halo and 85 FPS 4xAA and 16xAF on F.E.A.R. believe me.

Cons: the dudes saying the bottleneck is coused by the Processor that is quite wrong the bottleneck comes from the Northbridge the NB says how much bandwith will allow and how much speed so you need a good chipset to roll this card at the max

Other Thoughts: My Rig is a IBM A50p 8195-KSE AGP Mobo.// Intel Prescott Pentium 4 HT 3.2GHZ 1MB L2 800FSB 0.13Micron // 2 Gigs PC-3200 Crucial Technologies at Dual-Channel // XFX GeForce 7800 GS Extreme Edition OC @ 500/1400 Liquid Cooling // 80 Gigs Maxtor 7200 RPMS // 19'' IBM ThinkVision LCD Panel // H.I.D.: Logitech MX5000 Desktop with Logitech MX1000 Laser Mouse // Internet 1.5MBxSec

5 out of 5 eggsAdreneline for AGP Systems

Pros: Extremely fast, runs FEAR, HL2, pretty much maxed out at 1280x1024 with no problems or studders. HL2:LC (w/HDR) runs around 50fps. Reasonable noise from the cooling device. Even more overclockable.

Cons: Freaking huge! Had to move a hard drive down a slot to get it to fit.

Other Thoughts: The card's about a foot long, make sure you have ample space

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent

Pros: Upgrade from Radeon 9700 128M to this card. 3DMark03 tripled from 4400 to 13600. Was able to use the nVidia overclock reg tweak to overclock from 440/650 to 450/675 with no problems. Temp stays from 51-57, throttle back is at 115, so tons of headroom. Was able to overclock to 475/725 but had problems in 3DMark after a few mins. Keeping it safe for now.

Cons: None really. Hate the 'new' nVidia control panel. Suggest everyone stick with the 'classic' version. Also, get coolbits.reg and refreshrate.reg from nVidia to unlock more menus.

Other Thoughts: Card is heavy, which is nice. Very solid. the heatsink is two large chunks of solid metal which are bolted together in a sexy manner. Would suggest only those with 3.4GHz or faster systems purchase this. Everyone else just take the PCIe hit.

5 out of 5 eggsWoW

Pros: This card is undescribable.....no kidding. It totally kicks my 5600 in the but. 3dmark score on my my old 5600 oc slightly was 2375. This card scored a 12762 w/o ocing it and outta the box drivers. :)....havent had much time to test with a game play but I promise I wont be disappointed. As for the noise level I cant tell a difference. Heat is running about the same(2 or 3degrees higher) but I have only owned the card for a day.

Cons: This card is huge!!!!!!! It barely barely fit in with my config. The 7800 is about 2 1/2 in longer than my 5600 was. Width wise is the same. Its gonna take a pci slot away. No biggy there. This card is sitting on the release tabs for my mem :( This card is in a Thermaltake V gaming pc and its still that tight. I had to slightly bend a transitor outta the way as well

Other Thoughts: With all that said Im still giving this card a 5. Just cause its that darn good

5 out of 5 eggsThe Hol y Grail of AGP

Pros: Very fast, vastly faster than the 6800 GT Ultra. Many of us have exceptionally high end AGP systems that pre-date PCI-X. As a result, upgrading this card makes running any modern game on Maximum settings very simple. Your getting what you pay for, and it's cheaper than an upgrade. (New memory, new CPU, new mobo, new video)

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I've seen a lot of complaints about 1. heat and 2. card size. In response: This card is not heat, in a prescott based system, it adds a marginal amount of heat-- so marginal I cannot measure an appreciable temperature increase. And 2. The card is big, it is heavy, but it does not cause any problems. Perhaps in some "trendy" micro case or something it's big. However, this card is not even a Full length card. I had nothing but a good experience. It was quite an improvement over it's predecessor the 6800 GT Ultra.

5 out of 5 eggsBest AGP Card

Pros: This card is AMAZING! I upgraded from an XFX 6600 AGP and I see a huge difference in performance. To all of those PCI-E Fanboys out there: If you have a decent system, you do not need a $3000 system with SLI - I get 60+FPS in fear, 100+ in Halo, 60+ in WoW, (All on Max Settings) - Check below for my rig specs.

Cons: Although it is a very nice card, it is BIG. The back end of it almost touches my Harddrives, but thats nothing a little smart wiring cant fix!

Other Thoughts: Rig:
Socket 478 P4 3.2Ghz CPU
Asus P4P800E Deluxe Mobo
1GB Corsair Value Ram
XFX Geforce 7800GS AGP
1 x Raptor 74GB HDD
1 x WD 40GB HDD

4 out of 5 eggsMostly good, but not for everyone

Pros: The best and fastest AGP card. Because it runs cool, can be significantly overclocked. 3DMark scores are 40% higher than for 6800GT (both cards overclocked)

Cons: Consider what is real bottleneck of your system. With P4 2.6GHz and 4xAGP the upgrade from 6800GT did not make much difference in the games for me. While 3DMark scores are higher HalfLife 1 & 2 scores are the same. Oblivion is still best played at medium details. Caesar 4 still have the same frame rates as measured by FRAPS. Chances are that if the game is not enjoyable at high settings with 6800GT, it will not be with 7800GS , because 6800GT is already good (and quite similar) card and you probably have bottleneck not related to the core or memory frequency.

Other Thoughts: It IS a good card and if you have GeForce 6600 or below, it may worth upgrading. I had 6800GT (also XFX), which I could overclock to ULTRA frequencies. While this card allows for even more overclocking, (I have 550 core and 1500 memory stable operation! The best overclock I have ever seen) it does not matter much except for artificial 3DMark testings. In real games I do not see much difference, because most of the time my frame rate is not video card limited. Sure I can make now 16AF and 8AA at 1280x1024 and play at the same rate as 4AF 4AA at 1152x864 with the old 6800GT card, but the visual difference is so minimal, that it does not worth money in my opinion. So, If you have relatively new system (say 2 year old) and weak video card, then it is a good buy, the best buy I would say, but if your system is aging (like my 4 year old system) and you already have something from 6800 series, then do not do the upgrade.

5 out of 5 eggsGood stuff

Pros: Fast... stable... solid upgrade over any other AGP card out there (including anything from the 6800GT / 6800 Ultra class). Not only that, but it runs 20-degrees cooler than my 6800GT did! And my 6800GT had an NV Silencer heatsink + Arctic Silver thermal paste on it.

Cons: Can't really see any, other than you're spending $275 on an "outdated" AGP card.

Other Thoughts: My 6800GT died on me about a month ago, and I debated pretty hardcore as to what to do. I wasn't sure truly how much better this card was than the 6800GT, but it definitely is when you run newer games w/ all the "goodies" turned on (i.e. HDR). FPS is maintained to a MUCH higher efficiency. Games that used to drop me down into the teens in FPS, now maintain themselves above 30 at all times. Image quality has also improved. Definitely a worthy upgrade in my opinion.
