Summary: I replaced it with a $45 GTS 250 from the electronic bay (third hand). It's about 5% faster and has been running pretty well. I run the newest games at med-high settings. I can't even fathom what a newer card would do. I rarely every drop framerates below 40 or so which is usually fine...
Pros: It lasted about 4 years
Cons: EVGA did not honor their "lifetime warranty" because I didn't register the product within 30 days. A load of Bee Ess since NOWHERE on the packaging or books or even the warranty card does it say this.
Summary: Ordered an 8800GTS 320 from a seller (junior330ci) hoping to SLI with the other one i have. Got an 8800GTS 640 instead :|. I did have trouble initially with SLI config, but a few tweaks later, worked like a charm. So the deal was a win-win for me...
Pros: Plays EQ2, gears of war, max at 1650 res, no hiccups
Cons: well, it runs hot, i can feel the temperature difference when I turn my pc on in my room, Im not gona lie, im scared to leave it on overnight due to the heat it puts out just at idle desktop... I donno man i dont wanna RMA... so I turn it off at night...
Summary: It gets pretty hot but as long as your tower is cooled like it shoul be this shouldn't be a problem. Mine did overheat but i don't have the fans i should and it was running pretty much all day 15 hours or so. No damage though it just shut the computer down and kind of glitched out.
Pros: It's cheap but still above average on the video cards. It's real nice if you aren't looking to spend lots of money but trying to to make you gaming experience better at the same time.
Cons: It's kind of bulky and it covers the pci slot underneath whereever you happen to put it in your motherboard but maybe its different for different boards you should probably check it out before you purchase if you aren't sure.
Summary: I am considering RMAing it and getting an ATI - Just kidding! I'm no fanboy. But, if I do RMA it, I'll most likely buy another EVGA. :) Only buy this if you're not worried about the heat problem.. Besides the heat problem, this thing is amazing.
Pros: Eats up COD4, not a hiccup as of yet. It fit into my case (Raidmax Smilodon) easily. Wouldn't see any problems with any games, besides maybe Crysis - but what card wouldn't?! Fairly cheap.
Cons: HOT! As most reviewers have said, this thing runs very hot. I checked GPU temp and it was around 50-54C idle. I thought the fan was turned down, so I downloaded the "EVGA precision" tool, and it was already at 100%. I'm not sure what people are talking about, saying "If you have a well ventilated...
Summary: I like buying not-quite-leading edge equipment at bargain prices. Isn't Moore's law great?
Pros: Works well with CAD software that likes "workstation" cards (only the G80 version of the 8800GTS works like this, not the G92). Works well with Vista Media Center. I was concerned that it would be too hot for my case, but this worry was unfounded. Reasonably satisfied.
Cons: The price dropped $20 the day after I bought it and before NewEgg shipped my card. I "whinged" to NewEgg and they refunded my shipping. Didn't quite break even, but it is the thought that counts :-) Newegg is a great retailer and owns their space. A full refund would have pushed my review to 5 st...
Summary: I purchased this card to enable SLI w/ card i bought in jan. I could not get the frame rates and the visual quality on crysis @ 1920x1200 w/ my 24in LCD. With the money i spent on 2 cards i should have just bought one top of the line card.
Pros: easy install, setting up SLI was a breeze, good documentation on evga website made it seem almost too easy. Excellent visual quality, and butter smooth image in crysis w/ all on high.
Cons: Day after i installed the price dropped $15. One big card.
