3 out of 5 eggsNoisy

Pros: I've been running a 24 inch widescreen lcd, World of Warcraft looks great. Does the job at the right price.

Cons: The fan whines loudly, it is pretty annoying.

5 out of 5 eggs8400 GS

Pros: Nice little bang for the buck. Not having any heat issues because the card is in a slot where air-flow is very good. It is a cheap card with a little power. It runs all my games: Aces High, Train Sim and all my Myst games. My average fps in Aces high is 66fps. This card is just a stepping stone until I get one of the Nvidia 9000 GT series installed here very shortly.

Cons: None really, then again I am not maxing it out. Mine stays pretty cool in the Antec 900 case.

Other Thoughts: It's not a big card, but it gets the job done OK. Need to update the drivers since the CD version was out-dated.

My rig:

ASUS M4A78 PLUS
AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual core (Kuma) 2.8Ghz.
Kingston DDR2 2G Ram stick @ 800mhz
WD 160G HD (7200rpm SATA)
GeForce 8400 GS 512m Ram
LG CD Burner
Antec 900 case.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, not DOA, fit my case. Better scores in Vista, much higher framerate in games. HL2 was playable with stock 8200 onboard with settings maxed and res set to 1600x900, but was a little jerky and not quite good enough. After I dropped this in and enabled the boost, Lost Coast was actually too fast without v-sync enabled. Exactly what I wanted.

Cons: Runs hot, the pcix16 slot in my case (same as the other reviewer, Acer X1200) is last, not much room for airflow. Speedfan showed temps of ~55 idle, ~66 under load. the fan is a little loud, but that's to be expected from a small fan w/no thermal control. I did experiment with disconnecting the fan, but it was hitting high 60's idle, and I shut it down once it hit 72. I was expecting a low end card to run a bit cooler.

Other Thoughts: I mainly got this just to try the whole hybrid sli thing. I wasn't expecting huge results, and was pleased with what I got. I didn't bother with the CD that came with it, just ran the drivers from nVidia. Hopefully nVidia will start supporting hybrid sli in Linux soon, would love to compare with Vista.

5 out of 5 eggsHybrid SLI Enabled....

Pros: Works in connection with my Geforce 8200 GS graphics card to boost the framerate and enable Geforce Boost through Hybrid SLI on my desktop, came with half height bracket to support the Acer Aspire x1200 small form factor casing, fan is quiet for the most part and adds only a little bit more noise to my tower

Cons: Framerate is iffy in games like Sega Rally Revo where the game speeds up, slows down, and then speeds back up again. Other games give better results, No Hybrid SLI in Windows XP . but on the NVIDIA site they said its only for Vista. Also does get considerably warm inside the tower , even warmer when playing Guitar Hero Aerosmith, but so far no instability issues (so far)

Other Thoughts: I was just looking for a cheap solution to enable the Hybrid SLI feature on my motherboard with the Geforce 8200 chip onboard. Its not going to give you gaming beast like performance, but its a huge step in the right direction, especially if you are on a budget like me.
