Question eVGA...good or no?


Thinking about upgrading to a 6600gt. Just wondering if eVGA cards are any good or not? Preferrably would like opinions of people who have used this brand. Thanks for the info.

yes they're good

it's very, very, very rare for a brand to be bad (or any different from the others)

they used to be pretty crappy...but here in the last few months or more they have really picked up (tried them again after a few people stated how well things had changed a few months ago)...almost as good as newegg now...

I have a evga 6800 vanilla. I unlocked a vp, the pixel units were bad. It oc's well to 400/900 from 325/700. Scored almost 4k in 3dmark05 so not too bad in my eyes. After putting arctic silver 5 on the gpu the card idles at 46c and gets up to about mid 60's in doom3 at 400/900. I havn't had any problems with the card so far and it blows my mind. I am happy with it... although I think its stock cooling could be a tad better.

One strange thing I have noticed is that GPU idle temp at 325mhz is significantly higher than when it hits 350mhz. I was idling at 56C @ 325mhz and when i put it to 350c I noticed it immediately drop to 46C. I would recommend yall overclock it to 350mhz in 2d mode if you have not yet because it drops the idle temp significantly.

Thats weird, I thought all the 6800 cards Have thermal Probes or Sensors?

It shows temperature of the core in your advanced settings. Right click desktop, properties, settings, advanced settings. Its where coolbits is. A small Temperature control.

I hav had zero problems with my eVGA 6800GT, very solid, looks a lot like the reference design.

Like I said before this is my first one, but I believe that is why their cards are so solid. They stick to the reference design.

Was happy with eVGA when I got a 6800nu, then used their stepup program to get the GT and am still happy with it

You might even want to go to the eVGA forums.

6600GT, Maybe not then. Could have been the other cutback they made on it to sell it for less than a 6800nu. 128Bit ram, Less pipes, and no probe.

Just a thought

I had a 6800 128 Evga for about three months then I sold it to upgrade. But I had no problems with it, was a very nice card.

i would consider eVGA to be the best nvidia company. PNY and BFG are up there too.

Thumbs up to eVGA from me. I bought an eVGA during the Call of Duty promo a long time ago. I mailed the paper work, probably usps screwed me, and waited a while and forgot about it. I called them up months after the promo ended, explained my story, showed them my paper, and they promptly send me the game even though the promo was long over.

I have their FX 5900SE card oced to 460/755, the default speed was 400/700. Pretty nice oc in my opinion.
