The 8800GT is an impressive card and Leadtek haven't done a bad job with this Zalman edition that we have here today. The problem with the card however is that it just isn't all that exciting versus the mass of other 8800GTs floating around. The cooler isn't the best thing to look at, and while it does do a good job it's disappointing to see that Leadtek haven't chosen to cool the memory separately and give us a MHz bump in that department.
The inclusion of Neverwinter Nights 2 isn't too bad as it's a more recent title and certainly game fans of the genre could get into it. Apart from that though there isn't much else to the package.
Performance is good, that's no surprise. It's an 8800GT after all. If you wanted a bit more power you could look down the 512MB 8800GTS route, but there is no doubt that the 8800GT is going to be able to offer a lot of people out there the kind of power they want.
The Leadtek 8800GT ZL is a good card. It's great in the performance department, but on an all round scale it's just "good". It doesn't really stand out massively from other 8800GTs we've looked at which come with bigger clocks and/or fancier heatsink/fan combinations.
