5 out of 5 eggsNice Card For The Money!!!

Pros: This card is very good for the money spent. It runs fantastic pretty good for gaming and 3d effects for things such as cad cam programs. I like the fact that if your watching a movie you can turn the fan off and it stays pretty cool idling, it does have a copper tube and hinksink for such using the included software. I have this coupled with an ABIT IP35-E and a Q9450 & 4 gig of mushkin DDR2 HP Ram.

Cons: None. HDMI port works well - connected to a Element 26" lcd HDTV flatscreen. I put this card through 3 months of High activity with 3D resolutions, it can handle well overclocked. very good product.

Other Thoughts: The only other thought I have is I purchased this card 03/17/08 , submitted the form , registered the product, sent a copy of the receipt and barcode off the box.
I am still waiting for my $40.00 mail in rebate check...

3 out of 5 eggsNice Secondary Card

Pros: nice secondary card to output to an HDTV. Has an SPDIF adapter built into the card and integrated HDMI output and DVI.

Cons: Possibly ok for gaming but with the cost of 8800GTX's you could use one and get better performance than 2 of these in SLI

Other Thoughts: If you are running a P35 chipset and have no access to SLI this is a nice little card to fill up your second PCI express x16 slot.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Card

Pros: Great card - Not sure what Anex was saying by it being loud!
I just dropped 2 into a new system and they are really quiet!
Running SLi cleanly. gaming heavy and not an issue! Crisis
could be a little better but really runs nice! Gonna tweak them a bit but currently hitting 100FPS on the new Lost Coast Graphics test!. Think getting more should not be an issue.

Cons: Documentation that comes with it sucks!
First build on an SLi system and could
have used better info in the docs.

Other Thoughts: Not dissatisfied at all (Other than documentation)
Built my killer system for about $950 and happy.

5 out of 5 eggsGood card, lotta noise

Pros: Good marks on 3d Mark. Good scalability. Great value for the money. Runs most games very smoothly (depending on your RAM). No trouble installing/ setting the drivers. All in all, this is a great value. it's not the top card, but, it's very nice and for 100 bucks you cannot beat it.

Cons: it is LOUD. The fan runs at one speed "VERY FAST" which just happens to mirror "very loud". I got this for my wife's machine, and it's inside her desk (well insulated) so it really doesn't have much of an impact apart from the HEAT that blows from behind her desk. Otherwise, no cons.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this is almost too good to be true. If you're looking for a card for a 2ndary box, your kids or your wife (who doesn't play a lot) this is ideal. It's not a bad choice for the primary box if you're in a pinch. it'll do whatever you need it to.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Quality, Excellent Value

Pros: HDMI plug sold me for use in my new HTPC
DDR3 Ram on card another plus for speed.
Meshes very well with the MSI MB I am using a K6N Diamond Plus
Pretty good OC, but don't really need that with the HTPC.
Plays well with my 65" Toshibia DLP High Def TV, and LG Blu Ray -HD-DVD

Cons: Nothing note worthy

Other Thoughts: $40 rebate is great to have and a free game as well make this an Excellent Value/Bang for the Buck

5 out of 5 eggsMSI

Pros: The video card was packaged very well in New Jersey. I broght the card because i saw a backplate on the circuit board for the GPU. Video cards get hot and can draw alot of power, the backplate keeps everything straight. This card has an aluminium heat sink with a heat pipe and fan that vents out the back of the tower. The circuit board uses the high quality capacitors. How good are the graphics and frame rate? Will it last? I don't know because i did not install it yet. I have used MSI motherboards and slotkits and they allways worked real good so i am sure this card will be great. I got this card from Newegg.

Cons: There will not be any.

Other Thoughts: I know this review might be different but i wanted to tell you about some of the things i feel are important and sometimes overlooked when buying computer components and I saw the UPS driver drop the box while he was delivering it to me.

5 out of 5 eggsArclight2000

Pros: Received this today, fast shipping by UPS, came in 1 business day, ordered on Friday, got on Monday. Examined card in box, was HUGE, never thought it would fit, but it did. Bench marked my previous card, 2319 3DMarks. Popped in this puppy and it roared to 6158 3DMarks without overclokcing. Will try benchmarking with some dynamic overclocking. Comes with a utility that you can overclock the board and it maintains temp and overspeeding. Very handy tool to use. Temps during Lord of the Rings Online stayed near 42C, even cooler than my previous card, a 7600GS which always ran at 53C. Card has dual cooling with fan and Heat Pipe technology. I researched this card for a few weeks before purchasing. I went on the previous reviews...I would recommend this hands down for a PCI-E 16.

Cons: No problems so far.

Other Thoughts: My system is an AMD Dual Core 5200+, 2.67 Ghz, 4Gb Ram, Gigabyte Micro ATX board GA-MA69VM-S2, Highspeed Broadband connection, 500w PSU, On-board sound with 5.1 channel surround sound, Dual 20X DVD burners, 500gb HDD 3.0 SATA.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great card for the money, have one in my HTPC and i love it

Cons: nothing i can think of

Other Thoughts: if you look closely where it says 40.00 mail in rebate and click on it it opens up the form for you to print off and mail in, dont overlook it. i got mine without any hassle whatsoever.

4 out of 5 eggs8600

Pros: Intel 965WH System Board being used. HDMI Cable direct to 37" JVC LCD 1080-P.

Great picture, easy installation, Games are off the hook!!! Q6700 Quad Core Chip Set being used also..

Full Resolution and highest Video settings for Battlefield2. The details on the rag heads and commies, ad tremendous..

Cons: There is a $40.00 rebate on this item , till the 3/30, but i can't get the time of day from Newegg, or MSI?? for the forms?

I can't believe there is "NOT" a SPDIF connection on this Intel 965WH Board!! Or the DG33TL Intel Board that Intel gave me for Christmas 2007!! For the love a GAD!!

This video card has the SPDID connection on it and includes the cable for direct HD sound.

The problem is: if you do not have a SPDIF connection on your board , then you need to run additional audio cable to your LCD, or whatever sound source you decide to use.. Please no more cables to bail!!

Other Thoughts: Newegg could care less about Rebates and the forms that go with them.
