Great card

BFG Tech GeForce 7950GT 256MB GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card BFGR7950256GTOCE

Pros: Excellent card, decent price, and easy to install. BFG Tech Support anwered my question within 5 minutes

Cons: I wasn't 100 percent sure whether to connect 1 or both of the molex (4 pin) connectors for the card's power plug (6 pin). The documentation that came with the card wasn't clear at all. BFG tech support informed me that I should only plug in ONE of the molex connectors. I'm not sure why there are two. The other reviews talk about heat issues, and I wonder if they plugged in both of the molex connectors to their power supply.

Overall Review: I'm only running one of these cards for now, but will definitely use Newegg to purchase the second one.

EN6800XT Fan Problems

ASUS GeForce 6800XT 256MB DDR PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card EN6800XT/HTD/256M

Pros: Great card, chipset is very stable. Runs most games smoothly. Cheap.

Cons: After a couple months the fan started making a grinding, buzzing sound when you start up. I think the bearings may be worn out. Sound goes away after about five minutes of running. It still makes me wonder how long the fan will last. Has some framerate problems running games with lots of shadows and dynamic lighting like Battlefield 2 and F.E.A.R..

Overall Review: Good card, but now I wish I had just saved up for a 7800GT. Go with a BFG or other high quality card. Asus 6800XT seems to be a bargain until you realize that the 7800GT's give you more bang for your buck.
