5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: great deal for the money

Cons: as with all graphics cards, by the time they're cheap, they're outdated

Other Thoughts: replaced my old 6600 (garbage) that my comp came with. i went from being unable to bioshock to being able to play it on full settings - which is good since that was the sole reason why i upgraded at the time.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card for starter pc

Pros: Runs most games well. Crysis -> Medium @ 1680x1050 30-40 fps dx9 Age of Conan -> Medium@ 1680x1050, shader 3.0 about 30fps down to 10, with 2.0 i can get 30-60 fps outdoors with shadows off and max view distance. COD4 Runs 40fps @1680x1050. Haven't had any issues with this card. Just isn't running what I need it to

Cons: Limited at 256 mb, would only buy if you really need a gfx card for cheap. Otherwise, I'd suggest buying a 9800gtx for only hundred or so bucks.

Other Thoughts: Great card for anyone running any game pre 2007. or maybe that came out in 2007.

4 out of 5 eggsMSI 8600gt

Pros: Good Value

Price has always been fairly low

Fast for what it is

cheap to sli

runs newer games unless you count Crysis

Cons: runs most newer games but need to sli for higher hd graphics. 1600x1200 and above

Not the best card if you want to run 1920x1200 resolutions

Other Thoughts: You cant beat the price since it runs everything perfectly up to 1280x1024 then you will probably sli it. Tested 100% with COD4.

3 out of 5 eggsGood Card but No Rebate

Pros: Good dependable card. No Crashes. Not a speed demon by today's standards but it gets the job done.

Cons: Don't plan on getting the rebate. I bought this back on 3/19. They said to give 8-10 weeks from the end of the promotion to receive my check. It's been 11 weeks now and still nothing. 8-10 weeks is kind of long as it is. So I wouldn't plan on getting your $20 back. My rebate status on the website has been at "check issued" for several weeks. They haven't returned my email yet to explain why...

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card!

Pros: I play EVE and this card allows me not only the Premium graphics, but I can also run the HD graphics on it as well with no issues. I can't wait to get a second one and SLI them together.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Decent midrange card. Slightly increased factory clock speed. Good price.

Cons: 128 bit memory interface is kind of fail by today's standards

Other Thoughts: Used this in a computer I built for someone who didn't play the newest games. It might have some trouble with those, but for everything else it's just fine.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat but 8800GT better

Pros: I would say this is a great buy. Very inexpensive and great graphic output.

Cons: Limited settings on newer games like TF2 and HL2 for them to run decently. The 8800 GT would be a great replacement.

Other Thoughts: I'm going to switch over to the 8800GT. It's a better bang for your bux.

5 out of 5 eggsNext best thing to an 8800!

Pros: I have owned this video card for over 4 months and have had no problems with it what so ever. I have installed a Zalman ZF-900 heatsink and memory heatsinks and have two of these running SLI'd. I have this overclocked using "ATI Tool" at 680/900 and am running flawlessly. The temperatures never get over 50*C. I use a 32" tv as my monitor at a 1366x768 resolution and using 3Dmark06 at defalt settings and this resolution I can get 12000 out of it. These are really great video cards, and I paid $110 each now they are less than $90. With two of these you can run Crysis with a few settings on high and still good fps. FEAR runs with everything on max, and most older games everything else on max.

Cons: They are not 8800's or 9600's. The card doesn't have standard size 3-pin fan connectors, they have the smaller ones that only the Stock cooler uses.

Other Thoughts: I custom built my computer. eVGA 680i, intel e6750 @ 3.4ghz (stock 2.66ghz), 2.5gb ocz sli pc6400 (really 4gb). The red circuit board used makes others think you have ATI card's in your system. UPGRADE the coolers! You can get much more performance out of it (if you overclock) and can improve your 3dMark score by nearly 2000 points.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card!

Pros: Considering I went from an ATI Radeon x300SE video card to this, the performance increase is amazing! I guess by most standard this card will be considered mid range, but it's handled most games I've thrown at it incredibly well! Install was a breeze and I've never noticed any problems with my stock heating or the built in fan on the card. I've played The Witcher with highest settings with no problems, and Medieval 2 Total War + Kingdoms handles incredibly stable and flawless with settings maxed out! My pc is nothing to brab about, Dell Dimension 8400 with a Pentium 4 and 2.5GBs of RAM and XP SP2, but this card performs excellent along side it! This is great bang for your buck, especially if you need a mid level card to hold you over until the higher end cards reduce in price.

Cons: None that I've noticed. I haven't tried more graphic intense games like Crysis with this card, but I'd imagine it could perform well enough on medium and lower settings.

Other Thoughts: With the rebate, this card is a steal! Get it while it's cheap and has a free game included!

5 out of 5 eggsgreat card

Pros: Runs games, perfect for a mid-range gamer. I like the included MSI Dual Core Center, makes it easy to overclock.

Cons: I can hear the fan?

Other Thoughts: This isn't an 8800GT, but for half the price you get excellent gameplay. Card does a great job running FEAR on my 22" LCD. Price to performance, this is the card to buy for a mid-range system.
