"impressive performance"4.5 starson by hedgesjp
Pros: Fast, reliable, so far no problems (been 4 months)
Cons: price but with rebates its not too hard to swallow for the performance
Summary: Upgraded from a Nvidia 7600GT to the 8800GTS (640MB) and have been extremely happy with the performance. Built a PC myself with a large PC case so space wasnt a problem (the card itself is going to take up about 2 spaces on your motherboard and its pretty long). Had to upgrade my PSU from 400 to 550 to ensure everything was getting enough power though...Saves $$ on having to SLI my system to get max impact on the games I occasionally play and it hasnt given me any problems on the hours playing with all settings on Max (Half life2, Dark Messiah, Gothic3 ect..)
Overall am pleased with the peformance.
Am running it on XP Media center OS, 20inch Dell Monitor at 1680x1050, AMD X2 4600 CPU, 4Gigs RAM.
