5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great card for the money it plays anygame with ease

Cons: The usb connection to the tv won't reconize it as a second moniter, seems to be a driver issue between windows 7 and nividia

5 out of 5 eggsperfect ddr 2 card

Pros: I'm still in love with my old Nvidia 750SLI dd2 setup, with this nice graphics card I was able to enjoy it once my 8800 kicked the bucket.

Very simple and pretty quick!

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It worked well for about 20 minutes without my case top on.

Cons: After I put the case top on the card will not work, I have all of the drivers and have done every troubleshoot I could get.

Other Thoughts: Worked well for about 20 minutes, died shortly after.

Manufacturer Response:


I do apologize if you are having problems with the card. Please contact our 24/7 technical support (888)-881-3842 so we can assist you further.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great For StarCraft II

Pros: Plug this card in my Dell Stuido 540, booted right up and the drivers were very easy to install. The Overclocking tool was a big plus for me. It plays StarCraft II with all the setting on high or ultra, and stays about 62C while playing SCII and 48C idle. Good for casual gaming.

Cons: None!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Easy to install on the motherboard. The start up disk didn't screw up my computer. The drivers are easy to download or update or whatever.

Cons: Cost a little much for my budget, still not too bad though. No HDMI connection but I guess most cards don't have one.

Other Thoughts: All I really wanted was a card to run Lord of the Rings Battle for Middle-Earth on Ultra High without slowing down the game itself and this card does that for me. It is probably more than what I need but what the heck, I might start playing more games on my computer now.

3 out of 5 eggsWindows 7 x64 Beware [I hope this absurbly long review helps someone...anyone]

Pros: Has s-video out, Relatively cheap, seems versatile if your expectations are reasonable.
Frankenstein HTPC System:
Old Ultra Dragon case (Still a great case, enthusiasts smile when they see it still cranking away!)
Foxconn A79A-S (A good MB that never did live up to expectations, probably won't buy from them again)
AMD X3 720 (if only I knew then what I know now!) w/ the nicer stock cooler that came with a 945 Black.
Corsair 2x2 Dominator Dual Channel (When in doubt, go Corsair!
Corsair CX500 PSU
Older WD320 Caviar Blue HDD using SATA (1.5Gb/s-I think?)
Cheap DVD drive - Toshiba, maybe?
s-video output to some old Hitachi projection screen. Poor rez but big! Card feeds it nicely now that I have the issues (below) worked out.

Cons: Had significant issues with nVidia drivers. Installing latest driver caused the s-video output to fail to detect multiple TV sets on the 3 different MotherBoards I have access to - Foxconn A79A-S (the board intended for use), Asus M4, Gigabyte 990AX_UD3.
I bought this card to install on a computer made from a bunch of my old parts for a HTPC, strictly to use for HULU, Netflix and DLed movies, etc. After installing the latest driver, s-video stopped working (the only reason I bought this card - the cheapest card that I trusted w/ s-video out). Tech support was polite and patient, hold times short, tech could have been American or sure did a good impersonation! In the end, they gave me an RMA order but I knew the card wasn't bad because it worked on two other boards. What I realized (after an embarrassing amount of time) was that I didn't install the latest drivers on the other boards, just saw a screen image on the TV. (See Other Thoughts)

Other Thoughts: Then it occurred to me that I wasn't installing new drivers on the intended board. Put it back into the Foxconn and let Windows7 (x64) install the driver that it uses and presto! Called Tech support back to get advice on the RMA, "Nathan," told me that he had heard of Windows7 and nVidia drivers (I assume this is limited to older cards) having issues with s-video out. Maybe he was talk out the backside but I'll give the benefit of the doubt. Just stick with the old driver Windows 7 installs if you have this problem. The Foxconn MB might be the first thing some people point to, but this isn't the review for that. Bottom line: If you are having issues with the s-video, try the oldest drivers and work your way up. I hope this helps someone, I was losing my respect for Nvidia and EVGA over this but there are so many configurations and variables, I think this was a case of old parts, new OSes and the challenge of writing drivers. I have a GTX 460 by EVGA on a Gigabyte MB - good stuff.

5 out of 5 eggsLike it.

Pros: It works great for all the games on full settings. Easily can be over clocked with the evga utility. Easy to install .

Cons: lagged if I try to record a game play at 50 fps and full game settings. I know it is asking too much for this particular card...otherwise known

Other Thoughts: Even though the site specs for this product recommends 350 W power supply. The package in which it came shows 300 W power supply and it works great!!!

3 out of 5 eggsMy first EVGA product

Pros: Has performed without problem in terms of hardware. The support staff work pretty hard to get it right and kudos to all of them. There are third party overclocking support websites. Pretty cool and I would consider EVGA again, when making another purchase.

Cons: The Nvidia drivers and related software are a big mess. I wouldn't say don't buy there products on that account. I would say research the product you intend to buy very very thoroughly. I purchased this card because I had to have an s-video port to play Hulu, etc. on my television. Getting the dual-monitor mode set up correctly was difficult. Maybe this isn't EVGA's fault, maybe it's NVidia's problem. I'm not sure. From my viewpoint: DO NOT INSTALL the NTune application. There support is web-based outgoing (to EVGA) and to my email (incoming). I don't like that but I understand the "attachement" and "spam" problems. I wish they would just get temporary emails for each customer. Lastly, horrifically Windows 7 tries to find drivers for this card, rather than allowing me to go to the EVGA website and get the correct drivers. That is of course a Microsoft problem and NOT caused by EVGA. Still after 30 years + of MS, you would think peripheral makers could "help" MS not @$#RQ your computer.

Other Thoughts: The card overclocks well, but I haven't found a way to do that in Linux. That's important to me. A problem I had never encountered before was using a specifiic uninstall application to remove the EVGA drivers, as the Microsoft 'uninstall' isn't up to the challenge. Windows 7 requires too much of my time servicing it. Updates for every piece of bloat-ware in it. And then there's the registry defrag, disk defrag, ad infinitum, ad nauseum.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Card

Pros: Good Card with No Issues Yet, Can Play Some Games. Quiet Fan (so far), A Gig of VRAM (pretty nice), and a Reasonable Price.

Cons: Can Play Some Games, Not All. For People who play Modern High Graphic Games, I Suggest a Better Card. Can Heat Up at Times but not enough to cook food, Might Need a External or Internal Cooler/Fan.

Other Thoughts: Other Then the Heat Spikes.. It Works and Does a Good job For Me.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great card.

Runs most games on medium-max settings.

Easy to overclock with the EVGA Precision tool.

Stable at: Core Clock: 680, Shader Clock: 1640, Memory Clock: 630

Temps: Idle: 55 degrees, Load: (as high as I could get it playing DoW II and BFBC2) 77 degrees.

Doesn't require additional power connectors.

And of course a gig of VRAM =)


5.5/5.9 Vista Rating when overclocked (Gaming Graphics/AERO Graphics).

Cons: Runs hot at sometimes, but nowhere near its max temperature (in the 90's I believe), so might want to buy an aftermarket cooler.

Limited by my motherboard (doesn't run at x16) but still runs nicely. This is definitely not the card's fault though.

Other Thoughts: Nice card for a good price.
