Summary: Just installed the used card and have tested it on several games, so far it's amazing. It came in pristine condition and packaged perfectly with everything promised and needed... now if only the USPS guys had handled it better too lol.
Summary: Pros : - Work perfectly and plays smootly adobe photoshop, 3d studio and movies. - After 4 years of continous use, an overpower enviroment made it burn. My fail. - Cheap for todays standards. - Great for small office enviroment. Cons : - It very hard to get and buy it nowadays.
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.
Summary: I must admit, this is a very good card, and also very reliable for what I got it for. However, if the card is being sold as used, make sure the seller will be willing to provide you the registration code for the card in the event it goes out or else you won't be able to get it replaced per the XFX warranty.
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
