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 256MB of 64-bit double-pumping GDDR2 SDRAM running at 533MHz to deliver 1920 x 1200 resolution. The core clock runs at 459Mhz and the 400MHz lets you use two monitors for increased workflow, or wide-screen gaming.

Video can be streamed via 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 8400GS card for stellar graphics and versatile video output at a price that won't break the bank.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent card

Pros: It's an NVidia chip, so it does exactly what it's supposed to do.
Works well in Linux.
Supports HDCP.
Decently fast for games.

Cons: This is not a gaming card. If you're looking for uber-fast 100fps frame rates on the latest first-person shooter, invest in one of the higher spec-ed NVidia jobs.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat card

Pros: plays COD4 at highest settings, and Crysis on MAX!!!!!!!!!!!!! with very low frame rates. just stick with HD playback and free cells.

Cons: i don't have it anymore. upgraded to 9600gt. very big performance jump!!!!!!!!!!!!

Other Thoughts: don't waste your money. Get a 9500GT instead or a 2600XT

2 out of 5 eggsNO HORSEPOWER!!

Pros: DX10 for cheap.... Aero for Vista ....

Cons: Doesn't really handle anything that you want to throw at it gaming wise..... unless you like 640X480 ..... Entry level card, and it's performance proves it...

Other Thoughts: Could've spent a little more $$$$ and gotten an 8600 ....

3 out of 5 eggsbasic graphics card, does what it should

Pros: delivers vista aero graphics needs to basic computer that may not have an up to date graphics subsystems. low power consumption.

Cons: performs a bit lower on the WEI than a basic Intel G31 onboard graphics set - so it may make sense to merely upgrade that motherboard and save some power in the process? is somewhat nosiy, too, especially conidering its power requirements are low.

Other Thoughts: i used this card to see if i could up the windows experience index on a basic system (shuttle sg31g2) that comes with a G31 chipset - and the 8400GS didn't quite do it, it performed a bit better on the gaming, but lower on the business graphics index.

4 out of 5 eggsNice Card

Pros: Nice card for the Price. Performed as expected. I got this for next to nothing with a mail in rebate.

Cons: Runs hot and the fan can get pretty loud if case cooling is an issue.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card so I would have a spare to be used while my main card was being sent in for a step-up. I didn't really play any high end games during that time, so I cannot comment on it's gaming performance.

2 out of 5 eggsNo Sir, I Don't Like It

Pros: I got this card at a great price, with a great rebate. It will work for workstations and low demand graphics.

Cons: I am a graphic designer and gamer, and this card cannot handle many simple things. I tested with a shockwave game at 32bit color, it could not render it. Even at 16bit color it is still jerky in other games. Web based apps like goto meeting will not display the white board, or some interactive maps like weather and google maps etc. I recommend going with ATI Radeon at about the same price.

Other Thoughts: I used to have an old ATI Radeon All-In-Wonder card which handled everything I threw at it with ease. I upgraded my motherboard and the old card is not supported, no AGP slots. Its a shame that my old AGP slot card did a better job than this e-PCI slot card with far less memory. I guess that fan on the video card is just for looks, because it sure doesnt work hard for me.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent for the price

Pros: Right off the bat this card is willing to work with most games at Mid/low settings, not really a high end gaming card at first *read other thoughts as to why this gets 5 eggs*

Cons: Fan is kinda cheap, doesnt cool to well and it's hard to find cooling for this card so i resorted to using a pci fan, also this is a VERY underclocked 8000 series card, it's a 64bit transfer rate which does suck, if you feel like working on great gaming without having to oc' Stay AWAY from this card

Other Thoughts: This card oc's like a champ, but only if you have enough cooling, im able to increase the core to 500mhz , shaders to 1190mhz and memory to 400mhz stable with an aditional fan, and believe me those slight upgrades in clockrates make a BIG difference (my fps in WoW went from avg 30's to avg 50's +) and that's without oc'in the processor, so imagine the possibilities as a cheap card in a good system

4 out of 5 eggsAn Ok card

Pros: plays old games like hl1,cs,tfc,etc at 50-73fps. this is on my budget system :/

Cons: ok for a budget type of card its ok but you guys should spend an extra maybe 15-30$ on the 8600gt. this is one of my regrets for buying this. plays teamfortress2 at the recommended settings with 1280x960 at 10-34 fps. yes 34 fps may be a shock but that only happens if you look at the sky..LOL

Other Thoughts: if you are at an Extreme bugdet or an dx10 office upgrade, get this. But if you are in mid range budget, spend some extra bucks on the 8600gt,8800gt, or probably the 9600gt.

4 out of 5 eggsGood budget card

Pros: Nice selection of outputs (DVI, D-SUB, HDTV/S-Video)
DirectX 10 compatible
Cheap

Cons: 64-bit memory interface

Other Thoughts: Good cheap GPU power for running Vista, my wife doesn't complain about lag when playing 3D games at 1024x768. Serious gamers need not apply, but what can you expect for under $40?
