This type of card has served me well.
7 January 2012
Summary: This was a replacement for an almost identical card that I purchased years ago when I built my last computer console. The previous card worked great until apparently it overheated. Possible cause fan problems in my computer case. If you have the correct motherboard, I would recommend it.
Summary: Good performance, 8800 Ultra line is pretty solid even still. The downside to these cards is the price, and the ABSOLUTELY ABSURD amount of heat they generate. If you do not intend to go with a aftermarket cooling solution (waterblock) be prepared for one or both of them to turn themselves into a very expensive paperweight after awhile under heavy load. nVidia as usually is pretty spotty on drivers. SLI generally is..
Summary: This card is decent but not great. I found that the ultra edition is somewhat overrated. For the price, you only get maybe 5% boost from the GTX model and the GT model is almost $240 dollar cheaper and it runs about %8 slower but 10-15 C* cooler. This card is huge! If you don't have a good airflow computer case i would recommend you getting one of those pci slot fan if not your computer is just going to be a heater.
