EVGA is one of the top sellers of video cards in the United States for retail cards at stores like Best Buy and Fry’s. Along with XFX EVGA builds video cards based upon NVIDIA video chips and has excellent service and support for those needing warranty replacement or Technical Support with Limited Lifetime Warranty and 24/7 Toll-Free Technical Support. EVGA video cards have graced our motherboard test platforms for a good year.

NVIDIA introduced the 8800GT video card late last year. Released with 112 Stream Processors, the 8800GT was a new version of the 8800GTX with some minor modifications to the core that resulted in performance that was nearly the same as the 8800GTX and higher than the 8800GTS 320MB/640MB cards of the last generation. EVGA released many versions of the 8800GT including the reference clocked version, a SSC Superclocked version and now the AKIMBO version with an embedded improved cooling solution.
