Great card at the time, still holds up great. Never had any issues with the card its self but drivers can be a bit iffy at times. Needs some alterations in settings to get some games (Unreal Engine 2) to work.
I bought this to replace my 7800GTX, but the card arrived DOA (Dead On Arrival). Hopefully NCIX replaced it quickly after. Though, they were sold out of it so I had the chance to switch to a GTX260; HOPEFULLY. I've heard this card performs terribly in games such as Far Cry 2 as this is a dual GPU card (litteraly 2 cards in one). I wouldn't recommend buying this, rather look for the GTX260 which may be cheaper and WAY better.
I bought the card for my upstairs PC so I could play Crysis without giving up any graphics options. I'm not sure if it is my 64-bit Vista or the card, but I could not play warhead in enthusiast mode. Way too slow! Overall a good deal though for only $319 at NCIX!
This is just such a nice card, I love the metal cage, LED lights at all terminations, and it is indeed fast! One drawback is twice now, the nvidia control panel loaded a profile that had the fan set to zero, it didn't take long for the gpu's to reach over 110 degrees celsius!! That is too hot for my liking, I think the onboard fan controller might have an issue on this card. Otherwise I absolutely love it especially for $259!! Awesome!
Went from 9600GT to this Beast. It kills the 280 in benchmarks. How can someone not pick this over the 280? I haven't had any issues with my card during gameplay. Crysis Warhead played fine. The latest drivers by Nvidia have improved SLI functionality and better performance. If you plan on doing Quad I would reconsider and read more on the EVGA forums. I'd recommend the 280 for SLI over Quad with the 9800gx2.
Austrian Death Machine 09/26/08 Experience: 8 Days
Awesome card especially at $299. Made the switch from ATI to EVGA and glad i did. Able to play anything i want on full load no problem. Just make sure you get the drivers off the EVGA website and not off the disc though gave me some issues of compatibility with my monitor. Doesnt run too hot with good airflow(Antec1200 does the job).
Going from a evga 7800 gt co was more than noticeable. Crysis warhead is running on my system on enthusiast settings at 1680x1050 (0xAA) very smoothly. The only problem is the occasional hiccup that multi-gpu setups will suffer from. Also another issue is having to change multi display settings and then having to restart everytime. Overall for the price I got it, it's a damn powerful card but I am definitely going to be stepping up to a GTX280 in a couple months because of the above issues.
