Great for the casual gamer, highly recommended! Going for 3 years strong!

Summary: The card is very affordable and you get plenty of bang for your buck. I currently have two running SLI and they run most if not all games between High and mid high settings. The 9800 gt does run very hot during game play or load but it usually can be fixed with a aftermarket cooler for less than 15 bucks. This card is made for the casual gamer that doesn't want to send to much. Highly recommended, I have had one for 3 years and its still going strong!
Summary: Great graphics card. Even though its a little dated, with a bit of overclocking or when running 2 of them together in SLI you can run almsot any game maxed out on highest settings as long as you have a good processor.
Great deal. Would purchase again if I had the chance.

Summary: I bought a pair of GeForce 9800 GTs for a spare gaming PC at my office for use during downtime or after hours. The cards are flawless. They're pretty quite, considering they're running stock cooling. I don't play Crysis or anything, but they run Devil May Cry 4, Street Fighter IV, Darsiders, and many others with max settings and 75 fps or better.
Summary: Comments about XFX GeForce 9800 GT Graphics Card: This product got me through 2009, 10, and most of 2011 without many problems. I recieved it as a christmas gift in 2008 and have been enjoying it ever since! It ran on windows vista without any problems and games never crashed on it! Runs every game i had from 2008 - 2010 including team fortress 2, far cry 2, amnesia, UT3, The whole orange box, even Portal 2 and left for dead 2 without difficulty on high settings.
Pros: Compatibility, Fast for its time, Still a good card
Summary: If you wanna play most high end games without sacrificing graphics or fps without breaking your bank than this is the best card for you. It can play any game out there to date and most on the highest settings, these SLI-Ready cards are also ready if you need more fire power to add one more to your rig. Latest games such as Starcraft II and Call of Duty Black Ops can be played smoothly at the highest settings and even Crysis can run smooth on medium at 1080p.
