4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: Not a bad card though it's not for heavy gaming by any stretch. I purchased to get me by and it worked. Installed it in my mother's computer and she's had it ever since (2008). It's perfect for the "Farmville/Jewel Quest/Seek and Find" gamer but that's about it.

Cons: For the price, none.

4 out of 5 eggsGood little card

Pros: This card was for my brother. Plays Halo 2, CS:S, and a few other older games with no problem. It's no Crysis card, but that wasn't expected either. For an average build or lower powered users, this card is just fine.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Decent card for a good price. No complaints.

5 out of 5 eggsAsus EN8500GT TOP/HTP/256

Pros: Quiet, good video, good price.
Good little card performs better than I had hoped.

Cons: None for the card so far.

Other Thoughts: This is not the top of the line card for hard core gamers. So do not whine about quality. This card does quite well for normal use, with some gaming on the side. Just download newer drivers from nvidia and you'll be ready to go. I'll update further down the road.

2 out of 5 eggsNice, but not to Nice

Pros: Works well for everyday use. Will run your videos, photos, cruising the net. Very average game performance. Running COD4 on this video card was very choppy and very poor compared to my other system with a WC'ed 8800GTX. But you get what you pay for.

Cons: Very average game performance. Running COD4 on this video card was very choppy and very poor compared to my other system with a WC'ed 8800GTX. But you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: It just died on my today so I'm not to happy about that. However it's under a year so NewEgg is still there for me! Hopefully the return process will go smooth and they will take care of me.

4 out of 5 eggsWOW!!!!!

Pros: Worked great. This is my first video card and I think it works very nice. I play guild wars on all high settings and Crysis on medium settings and it still looks nice it has not crashed on me yet. I'm not into overclocking so i don't know how well that works.

Cons: It's kinda big by the look of it. but thats not a problem for me. It might be if you wanted to SLI.

Other Thoughts: I heard that its better to get the drivers from nvidias web site because the ones on the CD don't work to well. This is a great card for its price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card, Great Price

Pros: This card runs great, fast, cool, and ASUS quality.
Installed in an Athlon64 4000+ with 1GB of PC3200 RAM and the system plays COD4 on medium Settings flawlessly!

Great card for the cheap gamer.

Cons: None, for the price this card can't be beat.

Other Thoughts: 8500GT cards aren't generally great performers, but with the slight factory-overclocking this little card outshines the rest within the price range.
