"Unbelievable"on by golfpro99
Pros Unbelievable performance in 2006
Great performance today
Still runs all of my games maxed out at 1280 by 1024.
Cons Nothing worth noting.
Summary The fact that this card is from 2006 and still holds its ground says a lot.
The architecture in this card was roughly a $400M investment by nvidia and it really shows. It's been nearly two years since this card came out and it still runs pretty much everything maxed out at a reasonable resolution. Bottomline: This is probably the best video card ever made, at least the best I've ever bought.

Pros cost effective
Cons size of card
"Nice Card!!!!!!!"on by Runner41
Pros Played COD4, The Orange Box, and Crysis on high+ with no problems. Great card for the money.
Cons I have not run into anything this card couldn't handle (for now that is)
"AMAZING!!!!!!!!"on by beefington
Pros super fast, amazing graphics
Cons hard to install, make sure you have all the requirements
Summary This card is better than i could ever have expected. the only problem is that you need a 400W power supply which not all computers have (but you can buy for around 80$) and you need 2 PCI-E slots (because of the fan). Apart from that, it runs Bioshock at max settings perfectly, Oblivion at max also perfect, and it will probably run Crysis and NFS: ProStreet perfect too. If you have the requirements and the money, its definitly worth the buy.
P.S. If you order it off TigerDirect you can get it way cheaper than in stores.
"Fantastic card"on by Arne
Pros Very fast card for a good price
Cons Some driver issues remain
Summary I upgraded to this card from a 7900GS. The 7900GS is a good card but the 8800 GTS blows it away. The 8800 GTS smoothly plays any current game you throw at it and there is no reason to buy the much more expensive GTX unless you play at very large resolutions (i.e. > 1680 x 1050). Power consumption and heat output are very manageable. The only issues I have is some game/driver instabilities. But that is to be expected for a new generation card. Highly recommended card.
