5 out of 5 eggsGreat Budget Card

Pros: If you're on a budget then this card is for you, I play mostly Source engine games (HL2, etc.) and this card runs them perfectly. This is a good card for mid-range games, so as long as you aren't playing games like Crysis, it should be fine.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card at a great price

Pros: I love this card....I have 2 gig ram and a semphrom 3400+ processor....and I am still able to run World of Warcraft at its highest settings. It is the best card I have had in a decent price range. I paid $100 at Walmart for it, and I am very, very happy with it.

Cons: It does tend to over clock my computer by a lot....but then I am running an older processor. and it does lag on the test lab that comes with it....but it hasnt lagged on anything else.

Other Thoughts: I recommend this card for anyone who wants a decent card but is on a tight budget.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Awesome card for the price. I've been playing Oblivion and Mass Effect at 1024x768 with high settings and it has been a treat. Haven't seen what it does with DirectX 10 as I don't have Vista, but I'm sure it's even more amazing. In Linux, compiz fusion and 3D apps run smooth as butter.

Cons: The heat, as someone else mentioned. Otherwise none

Other Thoughts: Coming from an ATI X200M, I was completely blown away. This is a great budget card that can still manage modern games nicely.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Video Card for someone used to AGP

Pros: Great screen resolution, excellent graphics when playing games like Gears of War and Ghost Recon. Like that it has additional software for stability and performance. This card is installed in my first custom-built machine and I'm loving how crisp it is.

Cons: Only con is that I spent nearly an entire Saturday troubleshooting my custom built machine.

Other Thoughts: Note: If you have a motherboard with an nVidia chipset already onboard, you may want to use the onboard video port (D-Sub, DVI) first and then, after loading the software and drivers, install the card.

I'm a noobie at this and it took a good Sat. afternoon and evening troubleshooting my machine (had a ZOTAC N73V-Value NVIDIA GeForce 7050 Micro ATX Intel Motherboard with 4GB DDR2 RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo E7200, other assorted HW) before I realized I had to take out the video card - I'd turn it on and after a few minutes would shut back off.

5 out of 5 eggsgood buy

Pros: good for the money, runs all the current games like crysis, and call of duty 4 at very high resolutions

Cons: runs extremely hot 60C, i don't think that the cooler is good enough might want to buy an aftermarket cooler if you plan to overclock, works fine other wise

Other Thoughts: good video card worth the money!

4 out of 5 eggsNot bad

Pros: cheap, doesn't require extra power

Cons: will not run max settings on current titles

Other Thoughts: I was suprised, ran crysis, and ut3 with most of the dx10 settings on, and wasn't horrible... of course it isn't top of the line, but you get what you pay for

5 out of 5 eggsUp and Dashing!

Pros: Easy to order; extremely fast shipping (Ordered 12/20 received it 2121). Have 2 set up in SLI configuration with a MSI K9N4 SLI mobo, AMD 64X2 Dual Core CPU and 4Gigs of Kingston value RAM. So far: quiet running, seems to be cool as to operating temp. In normal functions graphics are great. In gaming (DDO, MoHAirborne, CoD) graphics are super! No problems at very high settings in the games.
Highly satisfied with the purchase so far.

Cons: None at this time (after only one day?). If anything crops up, believe me, I'll amend this review.

Other Thoughts: Fairly good price for the two of them, $74 and change each (but, there is a $20 mail in rebate on each one which drops the cost greatly). Bottom line? Decent price for a quite decent set of video cards.
