This card kicks butt! I can't say how happy I am. Doom 3 plays like a dream, the realism is intense, no problems so far. Toms Hardware, and MaximumPC magazine also give this card very high marks, better than the ATI x800 Pro which is the same price point. Formerly using an XFX Ti4600 128 meg, so this is a huge upgrade, XFX produces high quality, newer to the market Evga, MSI, and others, but they are on the high end of quality and price. I found not much difference in the price of XFX vs. Evga/others, so XFX is the way to go.

System Requirements Pentium III/4/Celeron or AMD Athlon/Duron An AGP 2.0 (or higher) compliant motherboard. Some motherboards violate the AGP specification and therefore this card may not physically fit in some systems 128MB of system memory Installation software requires CD-ROM drive DVD playback requires DVD drive The GeForce 6800 Ultra requires a stable, 12-volt power source for best performance, reliability, and enjoyment. For GeForce 6800-based graphics cards, NVIDIA recommends a power supply with a rating of 350W or higher. To over clock your GeForce 6800 Ultra for maximum performance, NVIDIA recommends a higher rated power supply GeForce 6800 Ultra boards will have two standard disk drive power plugs on the back end of the card. Both power connectors must be connected for normal use. You may use a Y-cable or connect two dongles off of the same power cable if plugs are short for normal use. To overclock, you should attach two independent (not shared or split with a y-cable) hard disk drive power dongles from the system's power supply to these plugs.
