5 out of 5 eggsNice card for the money.

Pros: This is far better then my Laptop graphics. Getting 60fps on most games I play on high settings. WoW, Call of Duty 4, Sins of a Solar Empire. Easy to install and don't need to hook it up to power supply is nice.

Cons: None as of right now.

Other Thoughts: AMD Athlon 64 X2 5600 2.9GHz

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This card is amazing. But anything would be when you do an upgrade from a GForce 6800. This card plows through games like its nothing. Just got Bioshock and was blown away. I can finally play the games that I wanted to years ago, for cheap! Even played some unreal tournament 3 with amazing graphics.

Cons: None. I knew what this thing could handle when i bought it.

Other Thoughts: Thinking of buying another just to run in SLI. The price is good enough. Plus I really only play TF2 when it comes to online play, and boy does this card deliver.

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: cheep... not a bad card for someone that needs a replacement for a 8600Gt or older. you'll get about the same performance, and they work fine. run pretty stable even at 61 celcius for long periods of time. the Evga Precision OC program is easy to use (as long as you go to the website and download the newest version... the one on the disk gave me an error saying "no compatible hardware found")

Cons: pretty bad FPS for me... im getting 14Fps average in FurMark at 1440x900(although i would expect them to perform better in lower rez), and in SLI about 34Fps... plus they dont seem to like more than 2Gb of Ram in SLI mode... they run ok in WoW or something, up untill you pass the 2Gb mark(flying high, veiw distance maxed)... then they crash. plus there not powered, but what do you expect for a budget card with only 32 processors. sure wish i would have had the money to buy 3 dualgoldfinger cards for my M3N-ht deluxe.... so... 3eggs for the Fps, but otherwise i would buy them again if i needed a non, or casual graphics/gaming GPU.

Other Thoughts: had a heck of a time getting them to work in SLI... had to re-seat them probably 5 times before the second one would even show up in my hardware monitor. maybe its just me but thought i would mention it. my 8600Gt's worked fine on the same board till there goldfingers started to wack out... (screen would flicker with the SLI bridge on, and not when it was off)

5 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: Wanted a cheap DX10 board to do game development on Vista so this was overkill. Burnt it in with a few games and it is a decent performer and overclocks well.

Cons: Not quite as fast as my old EVGA 7900GS but it was about 1/4 the price.

Other Thoughts: Bought this when there was a promo code and a rebate so the price was incredible. I just cashed the rebate. This is my 4th evga board including an 8800gts and they have all been perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsA good but reasonably-sized GPU.

Pros: Standard eVGA quality. I've owned all eVGA GPUs over the past 4 or 5 years for a total of 4 cards, including this one, and would buy from them any day. If your graphics needs aren't way high, this card is nice because it's not a behemoth like the top-end GPUs these days.

Cons: It wasn't free? *shrug* I got nothin'.

Other Thoughts: Unless you need bleeding edge graphics, buy this card.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card For the Money

Pros: Pretty Good framerates... Crysis ~20-30 FPS with all settings on high; 1280x1024 and no AA. CoD4 ~60-80 FPS with all settings maxed, 1280x1024, no AA.

Running at 49C after several hours of heavy gaming.

Cons: First one I got (from buy.com) was DOA.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from a 3 year old 256MB EVGA 7600GT. Big difference in performance.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!

Pros: -works great
-easy install
-inexpensive
-great all around card

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: There was a review on this card that said it had everything required to take advantage of the new features of Adobe CS3. That was a main factor in my decision to but this card. Another factor was price. This is a great card for the price. It was on sale for about $54 when I bought it.

Pros: Newegg was quick on the Return item, The EVGA 512 was DOA

Cons: I did not know that Newegg would pay for the Return and sent it back on my own dime

Other Thoughts: make sure you wait for the RMA shipping label it could save you ten dollars

5 out of 5 eggsGreat bang for the buck

Pros: Cant beat the price! GPU Temps dropped when I overclocked the cards.

Download EVGA precision to overclock - Great Utility - Can show temps and FPS on screen. Elimnates the need for aftermarket monitoring programs.

Cons: Does not come with a 2 way SLI bridge. Called EVGA got the bridge free within 3 days.

For SLI it needs 400w PSU (min) with 22 amps (Combined) on 12v rail.

Other Thoughts: This is one of the better cards I have owned. No probs, overclocks nicely, does not heat beyond control under load.
