10 October 2013
Summary: This card is TOPS! Absolutely brilliant even in 2013 i have 2 waiting to try sli mode but right now i am happy just running the one card its ace :) I'm well impressed with the graphics,fps,speed and realism of the games! Why spend a fortune on a gfx card ? Let someone else pay the top price and then you buy it for pennies on ebay :)))))))) when there ready to sell LOL Simple!
Summary: Pretty crazy, for a card as old as this thing is I have had no problem running modern software with it... and considering its 2013, thats just a steller review when you look at the product launch date for this little guy. Cheap at this point, but still gets the job done as asks for more.
If you're looking for something high end but within a price range go8800gts

Summary: Lives up to it's expectations as a great video card, great for overclocking, easy maintinance, extremely flawless product! Evga definitely makes top tier graphics cards, and this is definitely one of them, great product as well!
Summary: I just bought second 8800GTS 640Mb. One card handled everything I threw at it but once you put antalasting at 8 or 16 I have noticed lower FPS, I now added a second card and SLI'ed them. FPS increased and no problems detected. These cards need a lot of energy so make sure you have a reliable 750W+ power supply.
Summary: I have two of these in SLi. I play FS2004 (an old and simple game by today's standards) on a machine with a Phenom 9500 and 4Gb of G.Skill 800MHz RAM. When cycling thorough the four views in the game, I get a lag in the painting of the screen. For instance, the instrument panel in the virtual cockpit of an airliner like a 747 will take a second or so to fully "paint in." This bugs me.
Summary: To the guy below "homebrewed". Don't bother with a third card as it won't help you. I have a single 320 MB version of this card, and run MS FS 2004 butter smooth. I also run MS FSX, also very well. Instead, I would look into the rest of the system-processor, motherboard, etc. I run Intel Core2Duo E8500 3.16 GHz on an Asus P5E3 Premium WIFI with 4GB of Corsair DDR3 1600 MHz RAM. Check-out my 2 reviews at MS FSX Deluxe @ NewEgg.
Summary: This video card is expensive, but it is worth the price. Games like doom3, Quake4, Bioshock look so beutifull it will blow your mind, and if you work with open gl in 3d this video card has all you need for it. So if you have the money go for it.
