ZOTAC ZT-70406-10P G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Upgraded from Zotac's GTX 280 AMP! edition. Newer games see a noticeable improvement, especially with the newer DirectX 11 features and such. Anything that needs lots of shader power is much better now.

Screen Resolution: 1680 X 1050
Battlefield 3- Maxed out plays smooth
Battlefield 4- Med-Max settings, plays smooth but FPS dips to around 2 every so often (probably a fault of my system RAM though, see other)
Pretty much all other games I have are now maxed out if they weren't before (a testament to the mighty GTX 280!)- Skyrim, Metro 2033, Tomb Raider...

Cons: Coming from a GTX 280 is not that big of a leap in some games. Mostly DirectX 9 games fall in this category.

Other Thoughts: My Rig:
XFX 780i MoBo
Intel Core2Quad 9650
4GB DDR2 800 (needs more!)
Geforce GTX 760 4GB (graphics)
Geforce GTX 280 1GB OC (physix)
Thermaltake Toughpower 1200A - (overkill now, but the system started with 3 SLI'd 8800 GTX's)

PowerColor Radeon HD 3850 DirectX 10.1 AG3850 512MD3 512MB 256-Bit GDDR3 AGP 4X/8X HDCP Ready Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: more than 1 year

Pros: Excellent frame rates in newer games like Crysis, L4D, COD W@W, and GRID. 2-D gaming performance is top notch. Nice Custom Cooler. Runs cool. Definite improvement in gaming over a Geforce 7800gs.

Cons: FINDING the drivers can be a pain. I have always gotten the latest hotfix drivers from ATI/AMD and have had no problems installing/using them. Had to upgrade my PSU to use the card. CCC. Screen flashes when windows first starts up (just annoying really, but I have to wait for it to flash before I do anything or it resets to the desktop like I haven't done anything yet).

Other Thoughts: This was the best AGP card out when I bought it. I think that the AGP bus has a hard time feeding enough information to this card. I do believe that a 3650 would perform very similarly to this on an AGP bus. My system: P4 @ 3.2Ghz, 2GB DDR400 RAM, Radeon 3850, 160GB HDD @ 7200rpm, XP Pro.

GIGABYTE GeForce 9800 GT DirectX 10 GV-N98TOC-1GI Rev 2.0 1GB 256-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Mid level price for extreme graphics capabilities. Very nice cooler, looks good and functions extremely well. It's not loud, even when the fan is full speed.

Cons: Power Hungry little beast. It doesn't blow hot air out of the case. Cooler takes up the next slot.

Other Thoughts: An amazing buy! Hard to beat the Price/Performance ratio that this little beasty provides. I also have a Zotac GTX 280 AMP! Edition and this is almost as good in Crysis!!! I was only getting around a 5fps difference between the two cards @ 1280 x 800, very high, 8x fsaa. Also it's a much smaller card than the GTX 280.
