Summary: This was my first build GPU and it ruled. It can still run most new titles but not at 1080 60FPS with high settings. To this day it is still running. I gave it to my nephew for his first PC build. Only reason I gave it away was to upgrade to GTX 770 4GB.
Pros: Can run majority of game. Modern titles on mid to lower settings. Could run Crysis.
Summary: 6 years later, EVGA still honors the warranty. I was concerned that EVGA would send me some bargain video card that was "newer" and call it "equivalent" but they sent me the same video card. When that card was dead, they are now sending me a GTX 275 SC.
Pros: Still plays modern games with decent settings, 6 years later.
Cons: It finally died earlier this year. RMA'd using EVGA's lifetime warranty, and the replacement 8800GTX had the same issue, which makes me wary that something else is the problem, but since the issue I experience occurs during POST, and my other graphics card works fine, the problem must be with the...
Summary: I only removed this card last week because I thought it was finally dead, but after receiving a 295, I found out it was actually my motherboard, so my 8800 is still in working order. Could probably take a bullet and still play Battlefield 3.
Pros: Insanely powerful card. This card has been in my desktop for years and it still performs amazingly. Even now, in 2013, I can only think of maybe 2 games I've played that have been an issue for this card. Mostly everything else - mid to high settings still. I was playing Bioshock Infinite on it ju...
Cons: The 8800 GTX seems to have a history of over-heating problems. If you look it up, a lot of people complain about their card cooking and becoming defective over time. In my rig, it was idling at 70c and powering games at high 80s. I had occasional video crashes over my ownership of the card but no...
Summary: It lasted me over 5 years and is still working great. It is almost time for replacement, but this card will continue working in my spare computer.
Pros: I purchased this card around Nov. 2006 and I am still using it right now. At the time I purchased it, it was around $650, but I knew it would last, eVGA makes good cards. It still works, although by now it is a bit outdated. Can still play these games at mid-high setting: BFBC2, WoW, L4D2, MW2, B...
