Fast for what it is.

Pros: - Decent performance for an AGP card
- Very silent

Cons: - Bought two of these and none of them lasted more than a year
- The fan is inadequate and the heat that the GPU generates, kills the fan eventually kinda like it happened on the Radeon 9700-9800 series back then
- Runs HOT!

Overall Review: AGP is dead, so its time to move on into PCI-E systems, or if you are into the nostalgia, a second hand Gecube X1950XT AGP or HIS HD 3850 AGP 512MB will be a much better solution than this.

One Fast Tweak & THEN,,, FABULOUS!

Pros: Excellent value card to keep an otherwise aging system on life support for a couple more years. If you're waiting for XP to die before you move from AGP to PCIe, this card is about as good as it gets in this price range.

Cons: The ones I received have NO MOLEX OR ANY OTHER TYPE OF ADDITIONAL POWER CONNECTOR, despite the inaccurate photo.

Overall Review: This card as delivered is somewhat of a lightweight. The CD comes with tools allowing the card to be tweaked, but rather than using those tools, do a search for "unlock a GeForce 6800" and you'll find an amazingly simple how-to guide that can be used to quickly and easily open the disabled pixel pipelines and THEN this card is nothing short of spectacular. You won't find any other card capable of running 16 pixel pipelines at this price point. More than acceptable FPS in Source or Orange Box games with a fairly high degree of detail enabled.

4/ 5

Pros: A customer requested this item, and he found it to be a more than decent budget card. He is very happy with the performance.

Cons: Bought the item as new, received an open item. Retail box was internally tore up, anti-static bag wrinkled badly as if it had been wadded up, installation cd scratched, vid card was slightly dirty, scratched, and some damage to the slot contacts.

Overall Review: Setup an rma with NewEgg minutes after receiving this abused item, which went very smoothly, but my impatient customer declined to return the card after testing it, in which it performed as it should.

Myself, I am very disappointed in receiving an open, abused item. Have been a customer since '02, and this is the first time this has happened. I sincerely hope it does not happen again.

Major card for the $

Pros: Wow, what an improvement in performance over my old card. No problems playing Orange Box games on high settings,getting a steady 60 fps, not bad really.

Cons: no molex connector, runs hot and had to leave my case open. If you plan to overclock it, then get better cooling.
Had to leave my case open to keep system cool. (and I have good cooling from 3 120mm fans.one side and two rear.)

Good Value for the money

Pros: One of the very few AGP cards around this price range that are 6800xe and have 128-bit GDDR2 memory.

Cons: The fan is loud and after a few weeks it started making some grinding noise when I first start the computer. The noise goes away after a minute or so but it's still annoying. Also the fan works constantly at 100%

Overall Review: Great value for money, apart from the cheap fan

Great card for the price!

Pros: Great bang for the buck! For $50 bucks, it will run all but the newest games, though obviously not at max settings. When I saw the dinky looking HS and fan, I was concerned it might run or hot or loud, but its cool to the touch and quiet. I wasn't able to unlock the pixel pipes, but I unlocked the other three vertex shaders. Memory overclocked to about 860 and the GPU was doing 360 without artifacting. I only stopped because it was getting too hot.

Cons: None for the price.

Overall Review: My card lacked the power molex, but that hasn't caused any problems.

Got what I wanted

Pros: Card is playing Quake 4, Call of Duty 4, and others. The s-video to composite dongle is great for transfering to my TV, and the entire system has actually dropped in terms of heat.

Cons: None (Do you expect 8800 Ultra performance?)

Overall Review: Great card, great price, one of the best made for an AGP slot in my opinion
