XFX 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition - G92 Performance

Conclusion

Conclusion

The 8800 GT is a very good move by Nvidia. Closing up the mid- to high-range market by introducing the 8800 GT means that there is currently next to no choice at all when choosing a card in this price bracket...it has to be the 8800 GT.

XFX have put together a very nice package to go with their XXX Alpha Dog Edition 8800 GT. Containing an excellent AAA title, a very nice hardware bundle, and a very fast card means that you're onto a winner.

At £210 you simply cannot complain at the price and our recommended retailor Komplett should have them in stock for you soon! XFX have said that there is good stock on the way to e-tailers right now.

It is worth thinking about your card choice if what you really want to do is play Crysis at full detail and a very high resolution. It doesn't look like any single card in this generation is going to handle the DirectX 10 path right now in this title. Having said that, you can still get a decent experience at lower settings and all of the other games were more than playable at 1920 x 1200.

For a pretty much faultless performance in our benchmark suite, a cracking bundle and a speedy card, the XFX 8800 GT XXX Alpha Dog Edition gets Overclock3D's "Gamers Choice" Award, as well as the highly sought after "Editors Choice" Award.

Nice review........that's one of the cards I'm currently looking at getting......

One small question for you all though, with those 2 sets of mounting holes around the core, what type of GPU water blocks will fit w/wo adapter plates/fittings????? Just wondering if my current Swiftech MCW60 will fit without having to get any sort of adapters.Quote
