Summary: I had purchased my first 9800gt back in February 2010. I am running my dual core 4gb custom built htpc using this vid card. I stream sports, movies, tv as well as using it day to day usage. I have it hooked up to my 65" mitsubishi dlp tv and my 22" inch lcd widescreen monitor.
Summary: I bought this card because the 9800GT that came with my HP computer gave up the ghost after 2 years. I've been extremely happy with the performance of the 9800...it runs everything that has come out in the past 2 years with graphics quality maxed out and at 1920x1200.
Summary: I am satisfied with the video quality. I install it in a motherboard Gigabyte Intel Core i7/i5/LGA1156/4DDR3-2200/CrossFireX/SLI/2GBE/Raid/SATA3/eSATA/USB3.0/7.1-CH/1394 ATX Motherboard GA-P55A-UD4P, with a processor i7 860, and it works very well.
Summary: I ordered this card to upgrade my Dell Precision 370 so that I could use it as a gaming box. I installed the card in my cpu and it was able to give me signal off of the HDMI port right out of the box.
