Well, I bought myself one of these for Christmas, having waited since early November for this one to come back in stock at New Egg and it finally arrived two days ago. I just installed it… and I must say I’m extremely impressed. For a great review of the 8800GT series, which outdoes the 8800GTS, check out Tom’s Hardware.

My game of choice is WoW, and I’ve now got all the video controls pushed to the max. It looks beautiful, the difference is like night and day between this card and the 5200FX (don’t laugh if you know what that is). Worth the wait, definitely.

The card’s fan is very quiet, and it’s running cool. We’ll give it a good breaking-in tonight and see if it shows any tendencies for heating up.
