Amazing Cost/Benefit Ratio

XFX GeForce 9800 GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card PVT98GYDLH
XFX GeForce 9800 GT 512MB GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card PVT98GYDLH

Pros: I got the card 3 days after ordering with the cheapest shipping, so theres a plus. Second, this card must be a freak card because when running COD5, with everything maxed it runs at about 50fps and at only 49 celsius. I updated this from an 8500gt and it is the highest performing card I have ever owned. At 100 bucks you can't beat the performance. Another plus is that it is much smaller than other 9800gts and I didn't need to change the PSU since this thing is pretty power efficient.

Cons: Honestly, I don't really have any.

First product to force me to write a review

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card GV-N560UD-1G

Pros: 1) One word, cooling!! This card runs colder than any i've ever had, list is too long to put here. Idles at around 28-31 and under full load (Playing Dragon Age II) for about 3 hours at max graphics 1920x1080 it went to a smoking hot 51 degrees. Now, I don't know if I just got the top card in the bell curve or what but wow. 2) Card is quite short, about 9.3 inches overall. I could have fit up to an 11" in my case but this helps keep things free. 3) For the price vs performance its definitely at a sweet spot. I mean ATI has something really good going with 6870 and 6950, but these three are all great choices in my opinion. 4) Really, really quiet. I upgraded this from a XFX 9800 gt and its got to be at least 1/4 the decibel level.

Cons: 1) Its mid-range, but for me at a 1920x1080 resolution things are running great. 2) I just realized I could have easily gotten a 570 or 6970, kind of wondering why I didn't, I am a Doctor, haha.

Overall Review: If you need a great card from an awesome manufacturer, I would definitely recommend this with now hesitation.
