Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Great card, great price what else can i say?

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great Card, in the higher price range for the 8500 class but not bad with the mail in rebate

Cons: None really, the drivers they sent me only had 64 bit versions.

Other Thoughts: Great card for the money. Have not tried to overclock yet. But from what others are saying this card will overclock well!

5 out of 5 eggsGood bang for the buck

Pros: Excellent cooler well thought out design. Over clocked the core past 700 and memory past 1600 with ease. Automatic fan knows when to run slow or fast.

Cons: There was a wood nail inside the box. Maybe from the warehouse?

Other Thoughts: Iv had a 8500gt 512mb ddr2 was very slow so I returned it. Iv had a 8600gt 256mb ddr3 I returned it to expensive for the performance. But this Leadtek 8500gt card is a keeper when over clocked its just as fast as a 8600gt but for alot less cash.

5 out of 5 eggsRunning 2 in a SLI config

Pros: Singularly this card ran circles around the 8600GT I previously had in the system. With 2 in SLI mode, this is an incredibly awesome video system.

Cons: Tough to set up. Non-issue - to be expected, running VMWare, Linux64 and Vista64. Runs cool enough w/ 3 system fans.

Other Thoughts: Pretty awesome multimedia and video editing system with 50" Widescreen Sony and 22" monitor. Not set up for gaming, but I've let gamers use it and they were awed by this video.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent dx10 video card

Pros: Awesome performance! Make no mistake, the DDR3 memory is the real deal. This 8500 chipset application runs circles around the 8500 chipset with the DDR2 memory. Excellent stock cooling system to boot! It was a terrific upgrade from my 7600GS.

Cons: None that I am aware of at the moment.

Other Thoughts: My 3dmark06 score went from 2500 to 5500. Bioshock on high quality is no problem. Paired with an AMD X2 5200+, this makes one awesome low-budget gamer!

5 out of 5 eggsIncluded driver not working on Vista

Pros: Fast (I am not a gamer),inexpensive , dual DVI monitor support. Not too noisy. Works with 300W power supply.

Cons: The included disk driver did not work on Vista. After downloading the correct driver, I am a happy customer.

Other Thoughts: The Vista gaming score on my HP m8120n went from 3.4 to 5.3. The Aero score went all the way to 5.9.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for the price

Pros: Nice solution for average rig. Pretty darn good graphics on a budget.

Cons: None, It's not an 8800 so don't expect super gaming performance

Other Thoughts: Purchased to get new rig up and running, Will donate to roomate when I finish saving for the 8800. NEW EGG Service is perfect as always.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card for Little Money

Pros: Price, especially with any sales or rebates. Nvidia chipset, plus SLI compatible. DirectX 10 compat. Plays EVERYTHING I throw at it smoothly with no skipping. Movies are great, and this has Pure Video capablity too! Games look amazing on this card. I recommend it, esp if you're a gamer on a budget. If you're hardcore, go up to the 8600 or 8800. If you're like me, and do your hardcore gaming on a console, and don't want to upgrade your PSU- this is for you. Runs fine on my stock 300W power supply. Runs QUIET and fairly COOL. Installs easily, and if you're upgrading from another Nvidia and your drivers are current, Vista makes it literally plug and play.

Cons: Never had an Nvidia card from Leadtek before, not sure what to expect years down the line. While the card seems well made, the heatsink and fan on this make it just a *hair* bulky. If you've got something in the slot next to this, or if your PCIE slot is at the bottom of your case (neither was the case for me) you might want to try another card.

Other Thoughts: This is my first purchase from Newegg. Usually, I just buy my systems as maxed out as I can from the get go, and then they last for a long time before an upgrade is even necessary- and then I just usually buy new. This time, I decided to buy stock and do a little tinkering. This card-and an extra GB of RAM-took my system (AMD 4400+ dual, 2GB RAM, 6150SE intergrated) from a Vista score of 3.0 (it was higher for the processor and such) where it was limited by the intergrated card, to a 5.9! (so with this card and now 3.0GB RAM) Now, my lowest score is a 5.0 for the processor, and a 5.9 for the graphics and everything else. Another plus? It requires NO extra power from the PSU other than what's being supplied to the slot. Came with DVI-VGA adaptor, if needed, AND is dual DVI AND a free game. What more could you want in a card that's in the lower end of the price category?
