Still best card for the money!9/10/2008
Though the 8800GT is an aging card, it is standing the test of time. So far it can run every game I thorugh at it. Crysis won't run on full (but what card CAN?), but I can get decent frames running on medium. Super boost from my 7600GS. EVGA is a great brand too. I have the option to trade up if needed. The Superclocked Ed. is a better buy, it is factory OC'd so you don't have to do it and potentially wreck your card! Plus, I can still re-use this card for physics processing thanks to new drivers. If you need an upgrade, this is still a good card to get.
Going to add a second sli card!8/29/2008
Very satisfied with this card. Excellent performance running everything from games to photo/video editing. I like it so much I am going to add another card to see how the sli works. Note – make sure you have plenty of power supply for running 2 cards on sli.
Video Gaming Happiness8/25/2008
I needed a good graphical upgrade for my Vista PC. I did some research, and decided I wanted a GeForce 9800-series card. The problem - I didn't have GeForce 9800-series money. I did, however, have the money for the EVGA e-GeForce 8800GT Superclocked. It turns out that I didn't make a bad decision in the downgraded purchase. The graphics are far better than the stock chipset, and with the on-board RAM, it gives faster reaction times and more FPS than with any stock chipset. Word of caution - this card DOES REQUIRE A 400 WATT POWER SUPPLY. If you do not have at least a 400w power supply with two power ports available, or one PCI-e power slot, available, you will need to upgrade your power supply to handle the card.
Works great! No problems.
Excellent choice. This video card is everything everyone has said it would be. I have gained 15 or more fps on games versus what I had been getting with my ATI X1950XT. I got free shipping and buy.com delivered the product in about 4 business days. Out of many online purchases, this ranks at the top.
