I just got this card and what a beast! This card is huge in my Antec case. I had to move away some harddrive to get it to fit in there! But what a deal! I got it in sale at 218$ +20 mail-in rebate I don't think I could have get any better than this. Every game I run at max details so I don't think I need anything bigger than this. I recommend it to anyone!
This is an excellent card that can play most of the new games at max. I was able to play Crysis Warhead in Enthusiast mode (DX 9) at 1680x1050 no AA with average fps between of about 30 in ice levels and 40 in regular levels.
Got this with the 750i mobo bundle for $400! That's $200 for this card! Amazing price and great perfomance. It's the new core 216 which is GREAT! It runs all games no problem and when you register with EVGA you get Far Cry 2 for FREE! This is definately the best deal of the year!
I replaced my old 7800GTX with an EVGA 9800GX2, and hopefully the card was DOA (dual GPU cards aren't good) and I replaced it with this awesomme card. It fit my P182 chassis without problems, but I had to remove the second bay drive, which isn't a lost at all. It's day and night with my old card. With a Q6600, I'm running Far Cry 2 at max resolution for a 22" screen, at maximum Ultra High Settings, everything maxed out and, yes, it does lag a bit in single player. If you're looking to play this game, I'd suggest a GTX280, this may not be enough. But it's still amazing. 500 some FPS at FC2 at low setings...
Got the card ! It replaced my old 8800GTS 640mb that was overclocked and it was scoring P6462 on Vantage with physX. With this card at stock speeds I scored P10372. About 60% faster. Well worth the upgrade.
