Just installed my new EVGA 9800GTX+ card and this thing ROCKS! Looks like it has lots of headroom to OC as well. It runs cool and I'm using Rivituner to OC and control the fan speeds. I'm running Crysis @1400x900 custom settings (DX10 very high tweak for winXP) AND the Natural MOD. My god it looks awesome! The Nat MOD really makes Crysis look 100% better, with natural lighting effects, shadowing, real moon positions, and the water looks like you could jump in it. It runs great, no slowdowns....yet. I'm playing it a second time. The first was w/ my 8800GTS 640MB and it was a little choppy, paticularly at the end.

Anyway, I'm very happy with my purchase.....$199 at newegg w/ a lifetime warranty from EVGA.:D

Just can't beat the performance for $199!

Man this card will OC like crazy!! I'm using the EVGA overclocking Utility that came with the card. My highest OC so far is:

853 core (default is 740)
2050 shader (default is 1835)
1180 mem (default is 1100)

At these OC's it idles at 45 degrees and never got above 65 degrees load with the fan set at 90%. INCREDIBLE!! All with stock cooling!!:D

I played Crysis for about an hour at these settings w/o a hitch. I was able to enable 4AA in game and it played smooth as silk!:captnkill:

Great job NVidia, and EVGA!
