The GeForce 8 series offers a complete family of graphic cards ready to meet the unique needs of their users. The series features a unified DirectX 10 Shader Model 4.0 & Open GL 2.0 architecture for 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 for multi-card rendering and NVIDIA's PureVideo HD.

The 8400GS is designed for those who need more graphics processing than their CPU can handle. It processes video data with 16 stream processors fed by 512MB of 64-bit double-pumping GDDR2 SDRAM running at 532MHz to deliver 1920 x 1200 resolution. The core clock runs at 459Mhz and the 400MHz RAMDAC lets you use two monitors for increased workflow or wide-screen gaming.

Video can be streamed via S-Video, Composite or HDTV outputs. An onboard fan aids both board cooling and case airflow so you're ready to go right out of the box. Choose the NVIDIA GeForce 8400GS card for stellar graphics and versatile video output at a price that won't break the bank.

5 out of 5 eggsGot What I paid For

Pros: I simply Got what I paid for, Low budget card = Low Graphics capabilities. ran great and did its job the second I plugged it in.
Required Power supply said Higher than 250 but I'm Running it on 150PSU.

Cons: The inside packaging, was a little nerve wrecking of how it was kind of just in there with one layer of bubble wrap, when I got it, but it did work fine.
Installation CD on card was out of usual something you'd expect but It was an easy fix...if I was on Cable internet, 100mb file, running on a cricket modem, 5kbs a second.

Other Thoughts: Running on AMD 4450e 2.30ghz CPU
32bit Vista
150 PSU unit and 2 gigs of ram
Ran Starcraft 2 on low got 30 FRAMES lowest it went was 10FPS because of allot of units on screen
Ran starcraft 2 on medium, got 20 frames but easily got Laggy when there was a moderate amount.
(4on4 maps) If I played it on a 2on2 Map on medium I might've gotten Better Frame rate.
Played Company of heroes on Low all the way resolution at 1280-800
No LAGG Ever even when there was alot of explosions and smokes everywhere.

Then again maybe the 150 power supply might effect the maximum output of the video card. Not sure, Not That much of a tech wiz so far 150 PSU runs great.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card for the Price

Pros: Ordered and received within two days. Popped it in and started right up... no issues whatsoever. I bought the card for Sims 3, but I also do online classes and have to use programs that require high amounts of video and memory. One program I use is Maya. I have two gb of ram and this video card and it runs pretty smoothly considering I'm below the operating suggestions of the program. Definite recommendation.

Cons: None since installing the card in August of 2010.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for Rejuvenating an Older System

Pros: I bought this card for my father's computer, he wanted to get an 1080 24" LCD monitor and had an older HP box with onboard video using shared memory. This card made a huge difference. When you install it, make sure you download the latest GeForce drivers first, to save yourself time & hassle later.

Cons: Absolutely none, the card has been stable & trouble free for six months now, the display on his LED monitor is great. Adding RAM & this card is a cheap fix for an older box.

5 out of 5 eggsgood value

Pros: Works well with Win7. Is definately worth what I paid for it.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: My son and I built a Win7 last year and got one of these second hand. When it died, I figured the last one worked so well, even used, let's just get another one. So far, I am satisfied.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks For It's Purpose

Pros: I purchased this card for an older model Gateway, and the install and setup is fairly simple on Windows 7.

* Cheap
* Works w/ Windows 7
* Does the job.

Cons: The only problem I found with the card is the ability for it to convert S-Video to Composite. I wanted to use the output on an older television for movies. However, the display would never work with the nVidia drivers installed.

* S-Video to Composite

Other Thoughts: This is a great purchase for the price and simple application if you need dual monitors. Don't look for this card to do more than what it's been designed to do.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!

Pros: This thing runs Black Ops with an AMD x2, granted it is on the lowest settings, but still this card packs enough of a punch to get it running. It also runs Starcraft 2, Left 4 Dead 2, CS:S, Modern Warfare 2, and WoW. All of the games except for Black Ops run on low/low-medium settings at 30+ FPS. For the price you cannot go wrong for basic graphics.

Cons: Wish it had HDMI.
