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

The 8600GTS brings faster video processing at an affordable price and provides higher resolution rendering. It processes video with 32 stream processors fed by 512MB of 128-bit double-pumping GDDR3 SDRAM running at 2000MHz to deliver 2560 x 1600 resolution. The core clock runs at 675Mhz and the 400MHz RAMDAC lets you use two monitors for increased workflow, or wide-screen gaming. Both DVI are double-linked to handle the biggest monitors.

Video can be streamed via S-Video, Composite 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 8600GT card to bring best-in-class graphic performance and flexible video output at a middle-of-the-road price.

5 out of 5 eggsworked awesome

Pros: This card rocked for about 3 years then it died. It wasn't a bad price but now you can get better or same for lower price and that is always a ++

Cons: which it wouldn't have died.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Absolute best value card out there on the market. This card is cheap, and will hold you down in most games.

I was getting 16-30 fps in CRYSIS on medium settings, and 1650x1850.

The only thing that hurts it is the 128bit memory. However it is more than adequate for this mid range card.

If you are low on money, and want the most performance you can get. This is the card for you.

Cons: Heatsink is GARBAGE on this thing. it was so hot to the touch that it would sing my finger. over 90c at times, which is just unacceptable.

Had to get a third party cooler to solve the issue. I installed a ZALMAN VF700 and all the problems were solved.

Other Thoughts: My machine was a Intel core 2 duo alldendale 2mb cache, 2gb ddr2 memory, and a sata 2 16mb cache 320gb machine.

This graphics card carried me well over a year and i suggest you buy it if money is what your looking to save, but want to get the most performance you can possibly get.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: Very nice card. I've had it for about 10 months now and I haven't had any problems with it.

Never had to overclock it because I'm not extremely picky with regards to playing games on max settings, but this card WILL play cod4, bioshock and a few others on max.

Crysis runs at mid settings with stock clock rate and cooling.

Cons: Got a little choppy with Oblivion, but that could also have something to do with the fact that I hadn't overclocked my e6320 yet.

Other Thoughts: I am upgrading to a 9800GTX, but I will definitely miss this card. Selling it for $50 bucks to a buddy of mine who needs a new card.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat buy

Pros: great card... I have had it a while now and I have not had any problems with this card. I have had it overclocked to 720 and under a heavy load it doesn't get over 60. Frame rates are pretty good too. Runs perfect maxed out on cod4 bioshock, source games, GoW; all @ 1680x1050. Crysis at med runs well @ sam res. And gtaiv at 1280ish (uses a lot of vid mem). gonna grab another for sli when price drops

Cons: Runs hot but that's normal for the 8 series . Still pricey for 8600

Other Thoughts: E6750, 2x2gb gskil 4-4-4-12 800hz, xfx 680i lt, cooler master 830. Didn't buy mine directly through newegg

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Works as advertised

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I have been involved with computers for 10 years (software development) and I have always wanted to build my own machine. I finally bit the bullet and used newegg reviews as my sole source of information and ended up with what I feel is an excellent machine for the price and it was a blast to build

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for the price

Pros: I've had this card now for a little under a year, and I must say that I'm very happy with it. For those that can't quite afford the 8800, this card packs a powerful punch that'll get you through games with no problems and keep you up to date for future games as well.

Cons: The card runs a little hotter than I'd like, but I was able to counter that with some Arctic Silver and more cooling in my case.

Other Thoughts: I would absolutely recommend this card to anyone looking for a card. And EVGA is a very reliable company.

5 out of 5 eggsYup, Love it.

Pros: Like the reviews say, great card. I swapped from my ATI all in wonder 9200, okay quit laughing, im married okay. Playing WoW on max is a new experience. Also, currently playing Doom3 (too cheap to buy new games). Anyway CoD4 rocks on max.

Cons: The really great customer service alone with the EVGA step up program. Not a Con at all, just thought I'd write something here. Really, I love EVGA and recommend them to anyone. Their warrenty system rocks.

Other Thoughts: Wish I could do SLI in my QPACK2 Cube, but hey I can't have everything.........when I'm married, LOL.

Should have married a gamer girl :D

5 out of 5 eggsDon't Let Apperance Fool You

Pros: Don't take this card lightly by any means, it may look like a wimpy card, but Hooo boy it packs a punch, Crysis stays at around 32-34 FPS on high settings with 1080x1680, only takes up 1 slot instead of 2, leaving room for other PCI items. I run vista ultimate 32bit with it for about a year, and everything's runnin just fine.

Cons: what cons?

Other Thoughts: Kinda weird that it has a molex connector instead of a 6 pin, but Ive heard people say that that has changed, im not sure, i bought this card at least a year ago so I cant verify the rumors. - and I <3 EVGA!

5 out of 5 eggsCheap and Good Vid Card!!!!

Pros: Exactly what I need and not too expensive!!! Plays Halo 2 perfect no lag what so ever. Got Vista rating 5.9 on graphics and a 5.6 on gaming graphics. This card is perfect for the games I play and thats because I'm not a big hard core gamer.

Cons: I love buying all my stuff from newegg.com but I got this card from another site for less. Sorry newegg!!!

Other Thoughts: None

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good specs. and nice price. But I guess you get what you pay for.

Cons: Card lasted 1 hour, ran very hot and a chip on the backside of the board near the power plug went up in smoke. No alarms went off or anything prior to melt down.

Other Thoughts: None
