The GeForce 8 series offers a complete family of graphic cards ready to meet the unique needs of their users. The series uses a unified DirectX 10 Shader Model 4.0 & Open GL 2.0 architecture to produce stunning 3-dimensional graphics and lifelike texture rendering. With 10-bit per channel output, the 8 series produces higher fidelity color and separation. The cards support SLI and NVIDIA's PureVideo HD.

The 8500GT offers faster video processing at an affordable price along with higher resolution rendering. It processes video data with 16 stream processors fed by 512MB of 128-bit double-pumping GDDR2 SDRAM running at 800MHz to deliver 2560 x 1600 resolution. The core clock runs at 459Mhz and the 400MHz RAMDAC allows you to output to a pair of monitors for increased workflow, or wide-screen gaming.

Video can be streamed via Composite, S-Video or HDTV outputs. An onboard fan aids board cooling and case airflow so you're ready to go right out of the box. Choose the NVIDIA GeForce 8500GT card to handle your video and graphic needs without busting your budget.

4 out of 5 eggsVery workable card

Pros: I have been using this card as a gaming vga card since its release actually. Since then, I have only had to fix the fan once (Recently), but since then, it's been working well. I have definitely overclocked it in the mean while, and it is quiet (Though the fan might of had something to do with being physically broken...). Works very well.

Cons: Quite honestly, I'd start looking at some of the newer tech instead of this. It is a very good card (I think we got it free actually), and even though it should run quite a few of "today" (Read: Borderlands 2. Literally the newest game it can run without overclocking I believe.), there's much better for the price, and maybe even cheaper, so I'd recommend saving up a little and buying something more, new.

Other Thoughts: Replaced the fan after the thing holding the fan broke (Metal actually melted. It was a sort of spring/plastic lock.), but since then, it's been cool. Color on the monitor looks a little washed, but that might be the monitor itself.

And just to be heard, you should be able to get a GeForce 610 for like $45, or a 210 for less than $40 USD. Wonderful card, buy for your kid who's into PC games but keep a good processor around (And know it's seriously dated)

3 out of 5 eggsGet what you pay for

Pros: Compact, low power usage

Cons: Heats up quickly, plastic heat sink, slows down significantly when hot, no noticeable effect from manual overclock

Other Thoughts: After running this card for a year, it burnt. Literally. Running @ stock clock speed, video went blank. Rebooted, POST revealed video error. Opened case to see smoke and a VERY hot video card. I guess I got my 40 bucks out of it, but I don't like that its method of dying risked the other components in the case.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: A good and inexpensive card that does well in my server. NVidia supplies all the latest drivers (mines running Server 2008 R2), and it loads perfectly !

Cons: None that I can think of....

4 out of 5 eggsDied after 3 years

Pros: Good video card overall

Cons: Plastic heat sink!!!

Other Thoughts: The card says it supports DVD-I and CRT but i used 2 22" HD LCD monitors and it ran flawlessly for 2 years playing wow. Then it started slowing down and had to reduce graphics in wow. Then on monday it died. Just locked up and stopped responding. Rebooted system and black screen no onboard video so now need new card might order this one again.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for the money

Pros: had this card for about 8 months now decent for everyday use and its ok for some games and btw this card oces like crazy! using the evga tool i clocked the core at 735!!!! far cry 2 benches at an avg of 22fps on high still workin on ocing the memory more can only hit 470 stable so i might try some ram sinks and see if it helps

Cons: no cons unless you expect more out of this card

Other Thoughts: i always use evga cards never had any issues will keep coming back

1 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: Good, quality card for intended performance.

Cons: The one egg I gave is not related to card's performance - it is for EVGA and nVidia. And here is why - the EVGA website states that this card requires minimum 300W PSU with 18amps on +12V rail. However the box that card came in states that this card requires 400W PSU with 26amps on +12V rail. What is that all about? An inconsistency of 100W? I have 380W PSU with total of 34amps on +12V rails so I bought the card thinking I have what it takes to run it - now I have doubts. If the card or my whole system fails because of insufficient PSU - I don't think I will be buying another EVGA product.

Other Thoughts: This makes me wonder what other inconsistencies EVGA is communicating to the product users...

Manufacturer Response:

Sorry for the issue, this card requires a minimum of 300w PSU, you should have no issues.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely great for a non- gamer/image maker

Pros: I purchased this card for a back-up for my 8600gt and really can't see a lot of difference in the two for working in large digital files and editing digital pictures. The card installed easily, worked on the same Nvidia driver set, makes great images and also has great resolution to allow fine tuning of color. Reallly a great buy for the price. Get two!

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I like all of the EVGA products that I have had so far, and I think they are an up and coming force in this business.

2 out of 5 eggs8500GT worth the trouble if...

Pros: Cheap right now, ~$80 with the MIR. Does the following: HD DVD/ BluRay. Good-sized card, PCI-Ex16, SLI Supported. Comes with 2 stickers, courtesy of EVGA. Also comes with some cables for the S-Video [they are red, blue, and green], and with an adapter for dual-VGA monitors. There is one VGA, a DVI, and an S-Video outputs on the back. Really easy to overclock it. see other thoughts for more on this.

Cons: Not so much of a con, but this card runs warm, Currently at 55C with the fan turned all the way up, and even when the fan is on automatic, it is louder than i expected. i have to take an egg off for that.

Other Thoughts: You can download an app from NVidia called nTune, this lets you overclock the card really easily. if youre into gaming, go for the 8600 minimum, skip this card altogether. hell, just go for the 8800 series. good card for windows vista's aero feature, but i dont use it. im running this alongside a celeron d @ 3.47GHz, 1GB RAM x 2, 500watt Antec PSU, and a 160GB Seagate barracuda. not much else to say about this card.
