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... I can run memory and GPU intensive games, just that its either memory intensive or GPU intensive, not both.
Summary: I just installed this into my Dell Dimension 5150. Originally I had a Radeon X300 card PCIe card. When I opened my system, I looked at the new card and knew there'd be a problem. To get it to fit I had to remove the video card's retaining bracket (the piece that you screw the card to the case). I'm hoping the tension of the card's connector in the socket on my motherboard will be enough to hold it in place, but there's not much room for the card to move around anyway.
Summary: Amazing video card, I am howver having to upgrade my system cooling. This card runs (Idle) at 75c and under load at well over 80c. It maintains stability, but is so hot! I would still recomend this card to anyone that wants great graffics at a low price. (The money you save will be spent on cool LED Fans, and mesh windows to lower your ambient temperature) Lol.
Summary: This card will run pretty much any current game at max settings with a reasonable resolution. It's quiet, reasonably cool, and this is the sweet spot in terms of price/performance. Half the price of the GTX for 80% of the performance (I'm estimating based on what I've read).
Excerpt: If you are looking for a new PC to use with Windows XP or Windows Vista and you want the latest graphics technology you would be advised to get a graphics card that supports DX10. DX10 is a new technology improvement from DX9 that should give better and more realistic graphics. If you want to play computer games in the future, I would suggest a 8800GTS is probably the minimum graphics card to go for. At around £250 they don't come cheap.
Excerpt: The Geforce 8800GTS is the younger of the new 8-series NVidia family. This certain product comes from EVGA - A company formed in 1999, who have risen in popularity enormously over recent years. EVGA are renowned for their great products, and great warranties. The GTS is a lot cheaper for a reason. The differences are completely different to the usual clock speed variations, with only 3/4 of the amount of stream processors, and they are slower clocked too.
Summary: Vorwort: Hi, Heute Berichte ich mal über meine Grafikkarte EVGA e-GeForce 8800 GTS mit 640 MB DDR3. Besitze sie nun schon ungefähr 5 Monate und ich muss sagen es war absolut kein Fehlkauf. Ich musste Sie mir holen aus dem Grund da öfters mal Spiele die hohen Anforderungen haben wie Beispielsweise Ego-Shooter oder Rollenspiele. Habe es mir damals echt lange überlegt ob ich mir wirklich so ne Teure holen soll..
