"Great Performance at a reasonamle price."4.5 starson by iconjim
Pros: Medium to high resolution and smooth gameplay
Cons: Takes 2 slots, lower side of high price range.
Summary: Card installation was relatively easy after moving some pci cards around to leave room next to the pci-e slot and installing a more capable power supply. My upgrade was from the Nvidia 7300LE. The 8800 GTS is a little louder and warmer then the 7300 but performs remarkably well. Configuring the card settings for the highest quality and setting game resolutions, Doom 3 & Midtown Madness to their highest video setting produced no noticeable degradation in performance. Video editing with Studio 10 exhibits much improved response without the lockup I experienced using the 7300. It will be interesting to see how this card performs under Windows Vista and Directx 10. I am happy so far that I chose the 8800.
