4 out of 5 eggsGood card for the price

Pros: It's pretty good, haven't had any games crash because of my card so far, and it was pretty cheap compared to the rest.

Cons: From what I know about computer temperatures, which isn't much, it seems to run a tad hot.

Also, for whatever reason, a certain website which tests game requirements to your hardware (which i will gracefully leave unnamed) says that its actually 246mb instead of 256mb. I have a feeling its just Vista though because it can't seem to figure out what my CPU is either...

Other Thoughts: I'll probably trade up for a better one soon with a program EVGA has that lets you trade in a your old card for credit twards a new one.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Small, low power consumption, quiet; it's a great business video card. I haven't used this for gaming as I installed it in my work computer. However, it has handled all of the graphics intensive apps I use (mapping programs, graphics code I've written, etc.).

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: As other posters have pointed out, make sure you get the latest drivers from nVidia.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Cheap, low power requirements, good vista drivers, runs HL2 at full(minus HDR) at 1440x900 no problem, runs Rainbow Six Vegas at 1280x800 on low settings fine, Same with Lost Planet DX10

Cons: The drivers on the CD suck, get the ones from nvidia

Other Thoughts: Wish I spent 20$ more and got a 8600GT

5 out of 5 eggscould not find a better value

Pros: Rebate price, DX10

Cons: No sticker pack inside

Other Thoughts: I was on a budget, and this card was the best deal I could find with DX10, so I can install Vista later. I searched all over the net, and newegg keeps winning the price war. Plus they give unmatched service, and half the stuff had free delivery.

4 out of 5 eggsGood Buy

Pros: Placed this card in with a 3.0 GHZ AMD Dual Core and Gigabye board, 2 gig ram. Works good. HALO 2 with max settings smooth, Half Life 2 at max settings is good, Doom3 High settings is good.

Cons: Its a low end DX10 Card

Other Thoughts: Cant beat the price. SLI Compliant DX10 Card...works great with no complaints.

5 out of 5 eggsYes, this IS SLI COMPATIBLE!!!

Pros: SLI COMPATIBLE, Direct X 10 is a bonus, and the price is outstanding for what you get. Also, you get nVidia's latest Pure Video technology.

Cons: Could be better at games, but I'm not complaining.

Other Thoughts: For the price, I challenge you to find a better bargain! This is SLi compatible, no matter what the other reviewers say. You no longer need an SLI bridge to run two cards in SLI mode! I really wish reviewers would get their facts straight before providing false information to potential buyers.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Very good product, quiet, powerful, cheap.

Cons: None for this price

Other Thoughts: THIS CARD IS SLI COMPATIBLE. Mainstream Sli video cards DO NOT need a sli bridge to function in sli mode. Downlad latest nvidia drivers and enable sli in the nvidia control panel.
