Check out these quotes from XFX GeForce 8800 GT Alpha Dog XXX Edition 256MB reviews & previews
"An XFX card is always a great card thanks to the support the company offers. But what about the memory? I was pleasantly surprised to see just how well this card could handle the games I threw at it. While some games just flat out require more memory, many of the games responded very well to overclocking and that more than made up for lack of additional memory space. Looking at the power consumption shows how well this card is designed. A good bundle and a great warranty also come with this card which just serves to seal the deal for me."
"Id highly recommend (and do) the XFX GeForce 8800GT Alpha Dog (the card with the corny name) to anyone I know personally and certainly to our discerning readers."
"Of course, XFX's GeForce 8800 GT 512MB Alpha Dog XXX Edition takes this level of performance to new heights, thanks to some rather hefty core, shader and memory clock speed increases. As always, whether a factory overclocked part is the one for you depends upon your own needs coupled with your own willingness to perform overclocking, but if you want an extremely fast, hassle free GeForce 8800 GT with an overclock covered under warranty, you won't find many faster than XFX's offering here. While overclocking this level of board doesn't see vast gains at lower resolutions or in older titles, throw a new game such as Crysis at it and the performance differences become marked - Similarly, if you're looking to bump up your resolution or anti-aliasing level for gaming, the Alpha Dog XXX Edition XFX board begins to show its capabilities to their fullest, at least until you become limited by the board's 256-bit memory interface anyway.
Thus, as always, the final purchasing decision for a wannabe GeForce 8800 GT 512MB owner depends on your personal circumstances, and will vary based on your target resolution, level of anti-aliasing, desire for a factory overclocked board and, of course, financial budget. Indeed, with yesterday's release of the GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB, you may well want to consider shelling out another £10 or so to grab a stock clocked board of that ilk rather than a factory overclocked GeForce 8800 GT, a course of action I'd highly recommend looking into."
"In the low $200 price range you will find the XFX GeForce 8800 GT 256MB Alpha Dog XX Edition, and the ASUS EAH3850 TOP. Both of which were very competitive with each other. The ASUS EAH3850 TOP is a very fast video card, and the new 256MB GeForce 8800 GT competes well with it. So which to get? It depends on the games you will be playing. In Crysis they were dead even, so it is a draw, they were also even in COD 4, the only game that showed a clear winner was UT3 with the XFX GeForce 8800 GT 256MB Alpha Dog XXX Edition providing the best gameplay."
"Overall, the XFX 8800 GT 256MB XXX Alpha Dog Edition's performance was quite good. The card outperformed the Radeon HD 3850 in most cases and was only slightly behind the 8800 GT 512MB in many cases.
XFX has a solid offering with its 8800 GT 256MB XXX Alpha Dog Edition. For the most part, it outperforms the 256MB Radeon HD 3850, and it manages to stay within striking distance of the 512MB 8800 GT in many cases. The only thing that makes us pause before recommending this card is the current retail pricing situation for mid-range cards. It's kind of confusing and hard to keep it all straight at the moment."
