Excellent Value!

BIOSTAR GeForce 6800XT 512MB GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card V6802XA52
BIOSTAR GeForce 6800XT 512MB GDDR2 AGP 4X/8X Video Card V6802XA52

Pros: Excellent value for the money! 512MB of DDR2 RAM running on a 256-bit interface, and the potential to unlock 8 extra pixel pipes and 2 extra vertex pipes... I, myself, was able to unlock 4 pixel pipes (the other four were defective) and the two vertex pipes for a total of 12 pixel pipes and 6 vertex pipes, and overclocked the core to 345 MHz and the memory to 811 Mhz, and it runs at a cool 48c on load! Mind you, this is with an aftermarket Zalman cooler, so keep that in mind when considering a purchase. Can run almost any game at maximum settings, and even with AA and AF enabled. Incredible value for the money.

Cons: Stock cooler is merely adequate. As I said, I strongly suggest getting an aftermarket cooler for this card, especially for overclocking. The clock speeds are lower than my old 6600GT's, but the memory and the extra pipes more than make up for that loss.

Overall Review: UPS shipping sure took their time... Ordered on Thursday, recieved the card on Tuesday (with 2-day shipping)! Not impressed. This has nothing to do with Neweegg, however - processing was extremely fast, finished only a few hours after I placed the order!

Awesome.

Comments: Warcraft 3, like any other Blizzard game, is truly a masterpiece. Everything is improved from their previous RTS' - everything from the graphics, the resource management, the unit balance - EVERYTHING. Even the implementation of heroes. However, don't buy it hoping for a game anything like Starcraft. There is NOTHING like Starcraft in here. (That is, except for a few units, but that's a given.) There are alot more units, and thusly, the learning curve is a tad steeper (well, actually, it's ALOT steeper thanks to the heroes and low unit cap). If you thought Starcraft was hard, this game will kick your xxx to xxxx and back...
