4 out of 5 eggsNo Problems

Pros: Had a pair of these running in SLi for at least 3 years now. I just recently lost one of them. Never had an issue never had to mess with the clocking. I would buy these again, if they supported DX11 but its now an outdated card. For the money and the quality of graphics its worth it on a machine your not planning on playing nay of the newer games that require DX11

Cons: Did not last forever? Wasn't free? No lifetime free replacment? JK Jk =]

Other Thoughts: These are decent cards. It's not always the card that's bad. Sometimes the system is a piece. Sorry the other posters broke, but it can lead me to believe the setting probably had been tinkered with or handled in a abusing manner. I didnt realize really what i was missing out on till i upgraded my MoBo from Asus A8N-SLi Deluxe to Asus 990 fx Sabertooth. The card runs better than ever. But as I said no DX11 support =[

1 out of 5 eggsWhat can i say?

Pros: Ran all the games I wanted to.

Cons: Runs hot. I mean extremely hot. After downloading a new driver the whole thing crashed and burned. I rated this thing a 4 star last time because of the black screen of death. The Black screen of death repeated itself since then but i dealt with it by underclocking the card. Now the card was hurled into the trash as it finally did one serious overheat. Was going at nearly 90 degrees celsius. After this driver update my card would not stay cool even if i set the clocks to its minimum. It was idling at 65(ish) celsius with fan blowing 100% and underclocked as much as I could. I suppose it's my fault, appearently newer drivers are not working with this video card. But it also managed to destroy my hard drive after burning up so I ended up with 2 dead pieces.

Other Thoughts: After owning this card for about a year and a half, going through 2 of them... dealing with black screens of death, not being able to use the card to its full potential, it utterly destroyed itself and my hard drive with it because of a bad shutoff or something... this card gets 1. I take back my 4 i rated this product last time! Upgraded to a N250 GTS from MSI, their customer service seems alot... better, and more english... Least now I can understand the person that is trying to help solve my problems. Besides all these unlucky occurrences though, it still ran my games great and it was cheap so I guess i got my moneys worth

4 out of 5 eggsGotta love PNY

Pros: You get to have a new one every 6 month

Cons: Shipping costs to get a new one.

Other Thoughts: On my third one already. Tends to break on average every half a year. Tech support is pretty good, but can get annoying at times. (They do not seem to get it that power supplies do not come with 26A 12V rails, there is no need to have 312W on a single wire - it's more efficient to have multiple 12V rails at 18A. If PNY9600GT blank screens randomly and PNY9800GT does not, it's not my chipset drivers). If you patient enough to deal with ignorance of customer service agents, service is excellent. Bought one on Newegg mail it out from London to France and got a replacement in two weeks.

4 out of 5 eggsIt's not bad

Pros: It will play most games, like Assassins Creed, and Crysis on Medium setting at a good fps rate, and it will play games like Grid, or Demigod on high settings at a good fps rate.

Back when I got it, it cost around $200, so for around $80 its a real good deal. But now for $200 you can get a card a lot better. ^_^

Cons: This card can get a little toasty, but I never had any problems of games crashing or anything like that.

It requires pretty powerful rails.. at 12v it needs a current of 26A.. My power supply is only like 20A, and it seems to work ok.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It is a very powerful card for its price and can run all my games at good frame rates compared to my 8500 GT.

Cons: It can get really hot sometimes when I'm playing a really high end game like Call of Duty. My hangs around 100-105 F with decent case cooling.

Other Thoughts: All it needs it to get an aftermarket cooler and you'll be ok. Planning to runs these in SLI and to get a PCI slot cooler

2 out of 5 eggsOverheats

Pros: Decent performance for the price when it's not overheating.

Cons: Overheats, even under medium load (WoW, etc.). Can't play TF2 for more than 10 minutes. Stock cooling is terrible. I underclocked it to about 75% of what it normally runs at and it *still* can't keep itself cool. The Icing on the cake is PNY's terrible customer support.

Other Thoughts: Stay away from the 9600GTs in general. Many people seem to have issues with these cards.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Capable of good performance on the graphics, but that's what you'd expect for two 9600 GTs.

Cons: Unacceptable stock cooling. Even with the fan speed at maximum and UNDER clocking this card will lock under stress testing on stock cooling. Have two of them and each will do it. Not reference PCB design so be careful adding a cooling block that cools the RAMs as well.

Other Thoughts: Low cost of card outweighed by necessity of upgrading the cooling. Do not recommend this product.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Cheap, definently good if your on a tight budget. Plays all the games I need it too.

Cons: Runs hot while playing games. But I'm running on 2 fans in the case, and the video card fan usually runs at 9% or so unless I need to turn it up while playing crysis or another high graphics game. So for my setup it isn't to much of a con since I should have better fans. Its kind of big. But I have a small compaq case so shouldn't be a problem for most. It has one flaw that brings me to rate this product a 4... Some reason while playing intense games it tends to shutoff. Leaving me a frozen computer picturing a black screen. I have to underclock it so it doesn't do this. But I don't lose to much performance from it. I had to replace the product because my last card the fan died. It was going about 70C idle. I play a game well over 80C then I had to shut off my computer. They replaced it without a problem though. Gave me a new model and has been working ever since

Other Thoughts: Besides all the cons it is a really nice graphics card considering its price. The second card has been working great since i got it about 5 months ago. Plus my computer is on just about 24/7

1 out of 5 eggsDont Buy

Pros: Works until your play a game for more than 15 minutes

Cons: Overheats!!! I thought it was a driver problem until I saw all the bad reviews here and felt how hot the card became. That is unacceptable. I had to upgrade to a GTX 260 and all is better now

Other Thoughts: where is the quality control PNY?
