It FRIED!

Anonymous, Newegg
7 July 2011
  • Summary: ... I will only purchase a card in the $200.00 range now after my little incident with it. It just fried itself one day while playing a game.
  • Pros: Very fantastic 384-bit card. The first and only video card I paid over $500.00 for.
  • Cons: I have no clue if it is still in warranty or not, because I lost the box it came in and am kind of upset I spent that much money on it.

Got 2, couldn't ask for more (then a 3rd)

Richard B., Newegg
6 March 2008
  • Summary: Thermaltake Armour case is keeping the air flow going. Its working great with vista, and switched over to SLI without a hitch. Posting 14,000's in 3dMark06.
  • Pros: VERY FAST, BEST PICTURE QUALITY, GREAT BUILD QUALITY, SLI, EVERYTHING!!!! With 2 of these, nothing has limited me to anything less then max quality setting (including Crysis)
  • Cons: HEAT! These beasts will turn your case into an inferno without proper circulation. New nVidia control interface: maybe I'm alone on this one, but I miss the old driver interface!

Biggest dissapointment in my new rig

John M., Newegg
23 February 2008
  • Pros: The card does as it is supposed to. Runs games at decent settings.
  • Cons: The card BARELY outperforms my friends 8800 GT OC which is 200$ cheaper. And some games actually look better on his. Bioshock is literally garbage with this card, with visible screen tear and low frame rates. It IS a decent card, but save yourself the money and get a GTS.

Very AWESOME!!!

  • Summary: My rig: AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual-Core 5200+ Processor, Gigabyte motherboard, 2GB of Dual-channel RAM, and THIS AWESOME GRAPHICS CARD!!! Gotta upgrade to a full-size Tower soon.
  • Pros: Runs everygame on Max Settings and still gets a very decent framerate! I absolutely love this card! I bought this along with my new 5200+ Processor and 2 Gigs of RAM. Runs FANTASTIC! You will not be disappointed! Suprised I fit it in my Mid-sized PC Case.
  • Cons: Very big. Fan can get a little annoying. Makes some heat, but does not get too hot. Takes a lot of juice to run! Make sure you have a 650 Watt Power Supply with two 6-pin connectors!

  • Summary: In my case the power cords bumped up against a fan I had on the side panel. I was able to bend them out of the way, but it was just sort of a pain. I love that I am able to go triple SLI with this card.
  • Pros: It has a great hardware design which just lets your games play through anything you throw at it. If you can afford it, definitely go for this card.
  • Cons: The card takes up two slots on the motherboard. Make sure that you will not cover up any other card slots you will want to use. The card is just massive and will eat up space in the case. The other problem I ran into was that it requires two 6-pin power connectors, make sure your power supply has...

  • Summary: Lower the price nVIDIA/NewEgg.
  • Pros: Runs fairly cool compared to my OC card (55C idle, 65C-ish under game load). Easy install.
  • Cons: Just a bit pricey still but a better buy than the Ultra IMO.
