Not recommended with Windows 7 2/3/2011 11:49:45 AM

Pros: Blazing. Runs cool. Easily Overclocked.

Cons: Only supported up to DirectX 10.

Overall Review: This card was super fine, until I replaced my OS (Vista 64) with Windows 7. I see that this card is no longer available, so this may come out too late to be of help to anyone. But I've had considerable problems with this card causing BSOD and general crashes/lockups ever since I did.

Windows 7 comes with DirectX 11 natively, and Nvidia states clearly on their site that this card is only supported up to DirectX 10... though it works well when it works, it gets taxed with the simplest of tasks now and breaks down my system seemingly without rhyme nor reason now.

Awesome card 10/23/2008 9:30:34 PM

Pros: I bought one of these about two months ago and I couldn't be any happier with it. I run crysis warhead at all enthusiastic settings with anti aliasing x2 and get a steady framerate of 30 fps.

Cons: the first one of these i got was a faulty card. Thats about the only negative thing i could think of. but i returned it for another and now it works great =]

Overall Review: Dont think twice about buying this card, you wont regret it.

Excellent GPU 8/8/2008 11:11:09 AM

Pros: This is a fantastic card. Runs Bioshock, Unreal Tournament 3, etc. at max settings with steady frame rates; runs fairly quiet; and since it is based on the tried and true G92 chip you can rest assured it is a quality card. Since it is factory overclocked and runs everything I throw at it exceptionally well I see no reason to overclock it myself (at least for the moment being). A dominant GPU -- highly recommended for the price.

Cons: Not really a con, but the stock fan speed of 32% is way too slow for this chip. As others have mentioned using riva tuner to up the fan speeds a little is the best plan. I set four different profiles to be used depending on the temp of the core and to no surprise it dramatically improved my temps. At stock fan speeds: Idle at ~60C, Load at ~75C. Using riva tuner: Idle at ~45C, Load at ~60C. Again, this is not really a con at all as it is easily remedied with riva tuner (my preferred app) among other software-based fan speed controllers. The only con that I can think of does not have to do with this card at all: Moore's law. Also, make sure that you have at least 10.5" of clearance (11" to be safe) in your case as this card is long.

Overall Review: Just in case anyone is wondering, the riva tuner profiles I created are as follows:
Core temp: 0-52C fan speed at 40%; 53-65C fan speed at 65%; 66-80C fan speed at 80%; and >80C fan speed at 100%. I also have it set to 65% a startup. The card never has to go above 65% fan speed even under load. My system (built about 1 year ago -- the only thing that has been upgraded is the GPU): evga 680i sli mobo, core 2 duo e6750, maxtor 500GB hdd, 2GB crucial ballistix RAM (PC2 8500), xfx 9800GTX xxx GPU, and the rest of the typical stuff in a sytem. If you are looking for a reasonably priced GPU I don't think you can go wrong here. If my poor college budget allows, I may eventually pick up another one of these.

Awesome....and a great deal! 8/1/2008 12:58:24 PM

Pros: I can play most every game i own at max res and max detail with acceptable frame rates. Microsoft Flight Sim X is the only exception. Considering I have a single P4 3.2 proc, i can't expect too much. This is a great deal and you shouldn't pass it up.

Cons: Other than just the shear size of this beast, I find no cons to speak of.

Overall Review: Make sure you measure your case....or you will have to do some interior modifications.

A Great Lesson Learned 7/28/2008 8:11:23 AM

Pros: I'm not sure most would consider going from a pair of 8800 GTXs to a pair of 9800 GTXs an upgrade, but from everything I had read it looked like I'd get a small boost in FPS for my favorite title Flight Sim X.
My system consist of a 1000 watt PSU, 5 internal hard drives, one external, DVD, 2 GBs of RAM, USB devices galore, a X-Fi and for a CPU an E8500 (and probably a couple of other things I've forgotten about). My point is, all of this, along with the graphic cards, takes juice.
With a pair of 8800 GTXs, I could easily OC my system to 3.6 GHz stable and could OC up to 4.0 GHz, that would run stuff but would always wind up crashing. I could never figure out how all these guys could crank up past 4.0 and stay stable.
Dropping in the 9800s made a huge difference in the power consumption and although the cards themselves aren't that much faster than the old 88s the ability to increase my OC of the E8500 to a stable 4.31 GHz was very much worth the swap!

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: Don't forget to figure in your power consumption when tweaking your system for more FPS. When I purchased my PSU two years ago I thought I had juices to spare. Obviously over the past 24 months I've slowly used up that extra power to where my system was power starved, not by much, but going hungry non-the-less.
Looks like my next purchase is a 1200 watt power supply that may or may not last me another two years :-)

UPS barf 7/28/2008 7:50:18 AM

Pros: Card runs max settings for COH 130 avg fps Cod4 180 avg fps and i dont the game configed if i did easily the 250 max PB allows. The bigges thing people are not understanding is yes its about the same price as the 8800gts BUT!!!! you have alot higher memory clock a whole lot cooler temps(38 idle/48 load) and you need 400 watts to run this card THAT IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE that should be a no brainer. but I hear time and again well its the same as the 8800gts ill just get it. That is ludicrous and your loosing out by doing that

Cons: UPS 2nd day air i ordered on thursday I live in north eastern kentucky this thing was coming from memphis tennese MIND YOU 2nd day AIR!!!! it didnt arrive till wednesday!! we are talking a 6/7 hour drive from my house. I dont know if they want me telling this but NEWEGG actually refunded my shipping. because it was so blatantly horrible that why NEW EGG ROCKS!!!!

Pros: its a really good video card. Better than 4850? Yes it is overclock like crazy im running it @ 800 core 1980 shaders and 2350 memory only get 72 C,comes with the best online game ever Call of Duty 4 for free.I like the Warranty too double life time,also the card is do pretty look amazing on my windowed case and the price is so good runs cooler than my 8800 Ultra.GREAT BUY PERIOD.

Cons: Well you may ask why if I liked too much this card is getting so low score? well i got two of them and one was DOA and now i have to pay for shipping back ,this really @#$%^ i m a hard judge for my PC components so don't worry u are getting a great card.

Overall Review: I have to wait one week or more to get my second one if every goes OK i will be so happy but for now the RMA will cost XFX two eggs and will cost me 10 dlls more for shipping ,newegg you guys are simply THE BEST......Thank you.

Great Card 7/25/2008 12:15:16 PM

Pros: Price, Performance, Vents out hot air. Runs Crysis 1920x1200 Very High at 20-35fps no AA or AF
UT3 maxed out 40-80fps @1920x1200
Source games over 100fps @ 1920x1200
SUPPORTS NIVIDAS NEW Hardware Physics API from Ageia!! (Nvidia bought Ageia)
(Currently in beta form) This is only on the 98xx series and new GTX 2xx cards.

Cons: It may not fit in mid tower or smaller ATX cases it is 10.5 inches long, uses 2 PCI-E power cables. Fan speed stock is 32% no matter the load. At this speed the card idles @ 60 C. 81 C at full load. Use Riva Tuner to up the speed to 60% or more (still silent) and you will see temps around 45 C. Idle and 55C. Full load.
