Summary: A little mad that I bought this two weeks before the G92's came out but thats my fault. By the grace of the step-up program everything will be wonderful. I want to give EVGA a big kiss on the lips for that program. Without it I'd be heated.
Pros: A lot better than my old 7600gt. Crysis runs sorta smooth on medium settings but thats probably my processors fault (2.0ghz dual core)
Cons: Had some Problems with a fuzzy picture when setting up my 22" Hanns-G HG216D. Downloaded the latest drivers and haven't had any problems since.
Summary: The best comes to those who wait.. as always.
Pros: Nice try, but the truth hurts when you've overpaid for a GTS. All reviews confirm that the 8800gt is superior, even to the revamped SSC card. Not that you'd find an 8800gt anywhere, but it's still the far better value and worth the wait..
Cons: Nvidia has cannabilized their entire line up and created a frenzy with the 8800gt. Clearance racks will be filled to the rim with 8800gts cards and GTX cards - 8600gts instantely becomes an overpriced doorjam thanks to ATI.
For the "Better than 8800gt G92" guy, & in denial crowd..
23 November 2007
Summary: The G92 stomps the 8800gts line into the dust - so don't waste your money. Do your research & make a more informed decision. All of these older 8800gts's will be dropped for the new 65nm g92 rendition parts which they can make & sell cheaper.
Pros: Straight from Anandtech: "As we've mentioned, on paper the 8800 GT looks much better in every area except for memory bandwidth. Even though memory size is an advantage for the 640MB card, we know from experience that the added memory size really doesn't net us much in the way of performance excep...
Cons: "And from the first, our expectations are upheld and then some. The 8800 GT does top the GTS. This seals the deal: the 8800 GTS is no longer a viable product. While NVIDIA has stated that the 320MB part will be dropped very quickly, they expect the 640MB card to stick around for a few months. We ...
Pros: Your talking about the older and 320MB version of the GTS. Do your homework kid. The frequencies of eVGA 8800GTS 128SP SSC are same as standard 8800GTX, all up to 576/1350/1800MHz. through the frequencies are not higher than 8800GT, but the 320bit memory interface let the memory have 72GB/s bandw...
Summary: gotta feel bad for the jump on the bandwagon early adopters. The best always comes to those who wait, and much cheaper. he he.
Pros: None anymore . Surprisingly to most, including myself, the new core in the 8800gt is more efficient and more powerful than the GTS core. Benchmarks show the GT nearly as strong as a GTX with no exceptions.
Cons: One wonders how long the price of these cards can hold up while there exists a card over a hundred bucks cheaper that beats it handily (sometimes as much as 30%)
Summary: EVGA 122-CK-NF68-A1 680i LGA 775, Intel Core 2 Duo E6850 3ghz @ 1333fsb, WD 150gb Raptor & Caviar SE16 WD7500AAKS, PhysX card, 2x Corsair XMS2 TWIN2X2048-6400C4 (4gb) EVGA 640-P2-N825-AR GeForce 8800GTS Superclocked 640MB on XP64, Vista Home Premium x64 and Fedora 8 x64
Pros: I got just over 10,000 3dmark06 score with this card. I've been running at 1920x1200 with my 24inch widescreen and every game so far has had max settings with no lag. TF2, Portal, HL2, Hellgate London, WoW, and soon to be UT3 and Crysis. I just gotta say, I love motion blur in TF2 and Hellgate
Cons: Hellgate in vista 64 was laggy till I took Vsynch off... Sounds weird, but yeah, greatly improved the screen lag.
Summary: This card is amazing. The only thing it has trouble with so far is Crisys on "Very High" settings. That said, this card is no slouch. Hopefully the price will drop soon so I can get another and run SLI.
Pros: This is a great card. I've gotten great performance in all the latest games. It runs the Crisys demo on high with no problems at 1680x1050.
Cons: Expensive. with the new GT cards out I was really hoping that these would come down in price so that I could grab another.
