The GeForce® 8800 GTS cards are here and ready to go. Based on the revolutionary new GeForce 8 graphics architecture, these powerful new GeForce® 8800 GTS GPUs are the industry’s first DirectX® 10 compatible GPUs and are the reference GPUs for the DirectX® 10 development and certification.
Rocking the gaming world with a fully unified shader core that dynamically allocates processing power to geometry, vertex, physics, or pixel shading operations and unified stream processors that efficiently process geometry shader programs, while reducing dependence on the CPU for geometry processing, the GeForce® GTS features NVIDIA® GigaThread™ technology that supports thousands of independent simultaneous threads for maximum GPU utilization. Shader Model(SM) 4.0 enables more complex operations on the GPU and reduces the load and CPU cycles.
Stream Out enables programmers to add more detail without having to re-render the entire pipeline and Geometry Shaders permit geometry creation and tessellation for smooth curved surfaces and more lifelike character animation, including more realistic facial expressions and hair.
Occupying two slots each, these GPUs use high-speed GDDR3 memory and are HDCP capable.
So let’s cut to the chase: Just how fast are these new GPUs? Faster than a dual GeForce® 7900 GTX running in SLI mode. Faster, even, than a single GeForce® 7950 GX2 card. And, the GeForce® 8800 GTS has a 20 pixel per clock ROP.

I bought this card here at 285$ including shipping and gst, so it was a great deal. I bought a Zalman VF1000 + RSH-88 and cranked up the cpu core up tp 720mhz and the memory up to 1044mhz. 13 773 at dmark06 defaut setting
This card is remarkable and for a good price. can run all games that are direct x10 and tweaked graphics some you might have to set to medium. although can boost most thing to max. make sure you have lots of ram and lots of fans though my case has 7 not incl psu cpu and gpu. or hd cooler.. and i get an idle temp of around 62c with fan speed at 59% on gpu! about 75-80c on full load. overclocked 8% haha getting like 648mhz core clock.
i was going to build a gaming machine so i didnt care how loud it was, but it ended up very quiet by accident, very happy it turn out to be like this, so silent and so fast, this video card is well worth it, only wish i got the 640mb version
but this card is quite an upgrade from my old 8600gt, but on dx10 mode seems kinda slow still, also it came with lost planet which i thought was suppose to come with ghost recon?
If you know that your case is big enough and you don't mind a little noise, you really can't beat this card, especially for this price. I was thinking of picking up another one for a little SLI lovin'. Every game I have thrown at it -- Bioshock, DIRT, MOHA, HL2 EP2, Loki, GRAW 2 and even Lost World in DX10 mode run smooth as butter with full details at 1680X1050. How can you beat that? I'm pleased, very pleased.
Ok well a very important part to see if you are gona buy this videocard would be to see if you have a high or low resolution. If you are under 1600x1200 this card sometimes even outperforms the 640mb version. I play g 1680x1050 and i experience very high frame rate and highest graphix. ...Not counting crysis but that game is just nuts
For 400$ + 2 free games ? WoW. Below 1600x1200 this card OUTPERFORMS the 640MB! Working great on my factory mobo (acer) + pentium D... I know I'm bottlenecked, but I'll buy the E6600 as soon as possible with a better motherboard. This card is a powerhouse, you should check out the Guru3d review.
