Nothing qrong with the card, but you're better off buying the GT or, if you can't get that, the newer SSC version of the GTS with more shaders NCIX.com - Buy EVGA E-GEFORCE 8800GTS SSC Crysis 112SP 576MHZ 640MB DDR3 PCI-E DVI-I HDTV DIRECTX10 Video Card - 640-P2-N829-A3 In Canada.

BFG is a good builder- I like evga myself

I actually have that card myself, well the OC version then. You're talking about the OC2 version. Read my review here and decide for yourself. The OC2 is now cheaper for some reason....and it will do you great if you game on 1280x1024 or even if your gaming on 1680x1050. They overclock great! But like Babrbarossa says...there is newer, better cards available, sometimes for less cash...so do your research!
