3 out of 5 eggsWhat do you want for 35$?

Pros: Cheap.

Cons: Video playback lacks smoothness under certain circumstances.

Other Thoughts: I have this in a 3 ghz system with 4 gigs of ram. When I watch video on hulu and netflix, I experience video lag after about an hour or two of continuous play. This seems to be a cooling issue. Because after 10-15 minutes of inactivity, it is good to go again. The computer it is in is well ventilated and bare bones.

5 out of 5 eggsSatisfied Customer

Pros: The price. Since I'm not a hardcore gamer this card is good enough for me. I don't have an HD monitor and my screen resolution 1360x768.

Cons: Apparently, It's not compatible with XP64 and 7. I couldn't find respective drivers in the MSI website.

Other Thoughts: It's a very good budget graphics card.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: All I needed was a card that would support dual display. This can works great. I havent had any problems so far.

Cons: This card is a little bulky but I had enough room for it. I only thing I didnt like was that it did not come with the VGA adaptor.

1 out of 5 eggsDO NOT WANT! XD

Pros: Extremely quiet (No fan)

Large Heatsink, yet small profile (size of the card).

Extremely Cheap

Cons: It appears that even in a completely updated system, this card still has the ability to completely lock up the system. So far, it has been stuck in infinite loops 3 times.

I proceeded to put a fan on it to bring down the temperature of the card, and the temperature did go down and the temperature was stable at that point. However, it did not keep the card from locking up the system again.

Other Thoughts: This card might not be working correctly as in this specific card, not the brand itself. However, given the issue is repeatable... and I have COMPLETELY UPDATED EVERY SINGLE THING ON THIS COMPUTER!!! (Bios updates, chipset updates, video card updates, every single thing is updated... I am not kidding)... I mean.. I even ran Prime95 for a good 6 hours with no instability whatsoever... and as soon as I put in a graphics stability test... this thing crashes.

So its not the board, its not the memory, its not the cpu.. What it could still be:

PCI-E x16 CPU slot instability (I have reset the card, did not fix)

Faulty power supply and/or amount of power for graphics card (improbable seeing that a full prime 95 was running)

Graphics card incompatible with current driver (as of March 13, 2009 I am using 182.08)

Alas. I am done messing with this card, and I have bought an EVGA GTX 260 like I should have in the first place.

4 out of 5 eggsKind of worth the price...

Pros: It works...

Cons: It is BIG! Just BARELY cleared the motherboard heatsink on (MSI P43 Neo3-F LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel) and just takes up alot of space! -1 egg for that.

The Driver CD kind of stinks, but goto nVidia website and get the drivers there and you're good to go. -0 eggs for that, just a peeve for me.

Other Thoughts: Very big, doesn't seem to overheat in a well ventilated case, gets the job done... as long is it fits...

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Nice very card!!!!! I would recommend this card to everyone out there that is looking for a decent fast graphics card. There no problem with the card. It works perfectly fine. All the biggest Pro is EXTREMELY FAST Ground shipping. I got it within a day or two expecting about 2 to 3 days ground shipping. NEWEGG Rocks!!!!!!!!! :)

Cons: There are hardly any cons i could find, but the only small con i could find is a nonavailability of the cooling fan on the card, but the cooling fan and stuff like that is completely unnecessary for it works absolutely fine without it. Just add additional cooling fans in your case including the one that directs it to the graphics card. I am not a gamer, but I think I would recommend this card for gamers too. Newegg rocks again woohoo!!~~~ :)

4 out of 5 eggsseems ok

Pros: it has been great for all the general computing I do.. Price was great

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I don't need a powerful video card, and this is better than built-in graphics, and frees up the shared memory.
