5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Fast, reliable, and still serving me well.

Cons: Very long card (full length), which makes the selection of cases which can fit it rather slim. Fan is also a bit louder than I'd like.

Other Thoughts: Tested on Windows XP, Windows 7, and Ubuntu 12.04. Works great under all three operating systems.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great in Dell Inspiron 530

Pros: I installed this in my new Dell Inspiron 530 system and it works great. The Inspiron 530 case has the hard drives mounted horizontally so getting this card in the PCI-E slot was a little difficult. Also, the Inspiron 530 comes in two varieties. If purchased with a Core 2 Quad it has a 350w power supply. If the system is purchased with any other kind of CPU, it has only a 250w power supply.

Cons: None yet

Other Thoughts: I initially forgot to plug in the 6-pin power connector. The card still ran but at a greatly reduced performance. Make sure you plug in the power cable for the video card!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: HUGE upgrade over integrated chip. Oblivion runs at 50-60 FPS maxed, 1680 x 1050 res (although I did have to up the fan speed).

Cons: Runs a little hot on stock settings... used EVGA's Precision tuner to up the speed and have had no problems since. Very tight fit in a Dell Inspiron case, but it did fit.

Other Thoughts: Excellent experience with Newegg!

5 out of 5 eggsgreat budget card

Pros: Runs very cool even with default fan profile, overclocks well, good performance, especially for the money.

Cons: Only 64 stream processors, but you get what you pay for

Other Thoughts: I received this card as a replacement to a 8600GTS 512MB I RMA'd back to EVGA. Imagine my suprise when I saw a 9600GT in the box. I already had two gaming machines and this card effectively gave me a third. Doesn't quite have 8800GT perforamnce, but it runs a lot cooler. I currently have it OCed to 730/1800/1000 and it's running at 57C while folding, and that's with the default fan profile.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat pair

Pros: Wasn't sure if these babies would run in SLI on my current MSI 650i SLI board with vista because my 7600 GT's would not but MSI assured me that they could run in SLI and they do. Great!

Cons: Didn't have the $ for a pair of 9800 GTX's

Other Thoughts: For the games and programs I run I'm sure these cards are up to the task. They are running cool and stable. Good for now but the 9800 GTX's are on my Christmas list as well as a few other items. Of all the online stores Newegg really has the products of choice.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good price. Nice internal fan.

Cons: Don't use this video card if you can afford not to. It isn't compatable with WinXP SP3 and will not give DVD playback. Even with using the latest driver and DVD decoder from Nvidia, it will not play DVD's. Technical support doesn't help, after a week the upgraded my problem to level 2 and then told me that the problem doesn't exist because they could not replicate it in their lab.
