Great card for Work and Games!
Pros: Works on 360 watt max power supply Quiet Great Price Great Graphics COD2 DVD nice bundled game
Overall Review: My only concern in purchasing the card was that the Sony VGC-RA828G states that it has 364.7 watts max in its specs sheet. I breathed a sigh of relief when the display came up after installing the new card. After loading the MSI/Nvidia drivers, I installed Call of Duty 2 which shipped as a DVD within the MSI NX7800GT-VT2D256E box. The box wasn’t shrink-wrapped when I received it, so I think the Call of Duty 2 DVD may have been a recent addition. I’m glad I purchased Call of Duty 2 with the card because the normal game purchase has 6 CDs for installation - you only get a installation DVD with the deluxe version of Call of Duty 2. Even before I started playing Call of Duty 2, I noticed the screen seemed to be brighter and sharper. Initially, Call of Duty 2 defaulted to a display of 1024×768, but I pushed it up to 1600×1200 with 4A on my 21-inch LCD screen and the game still played well. The card is quiet, and I look forward seeing how well games will look and play with the new 7800GT. In
