5 out of 5 eggsLarge Card, Looks Good

Pros: One of the best looking video cards when mounted in the case. No issues with video. Note: The computer that this card is in is not used for gaming. I wanted a reasonable bang for the buck and this card did the job.

Cons: Card is wide. Be sure you have room for it.

Other Thoughts: This card is in an Antec P-160WF case. This case is listed with a width of 8.1 inches. The card has about 1 inch of room between it and the window side of the case when mounted on the motherboard.

2 out of 5 eggsRebate

Pros: I have already rated this card as "excellent" - and it is.

Cons: Ordered on 04/24/08. Rebate received 08/15/08. Yep, almost 4 months later! Rebates from Geil and Gigabyte, all submitted at the same time, were received months earlier.

Other Thoughts: At least they sent it. I had completely forgotten about it it's been so long. At least they did send it, else it would be a "very poor" rating.

Manufacturer Response:

Dear Stylin,

We apologize for the delay in getting your rebate check. This is very unusual as we try to get the rebate back to the customers in a timely manner. The attention on this matter will only help us to improve, and we thank you for letting us know.

Sincerely,
ECS

5 out of 5 eggsPretty Awesome

Pros: Overall, nVidia's 9600 GT is a very powerful and valuable card. ESC's passive heatsink is rather powerful and useful. Without any fan or help, it kept under 70c in my case. I installed a spare exhaust fan and it stayed even cooler. I'm pleasantly surprised about its efficiency.

Cons: While the heatsink accomplishes what it needs to do well enough to be a superior passive heatsink, it is very large. I don't normally keep the side panel on my case because it serves no purpose, but if I were to do so I fear that it would touch the panel or just not fit.

Other Thoughts: I have not owned this card for very long but I don't think it will fail me anytime soon, or at least I hope it does not. I recommend this card to anyone who can't pay much more than $100 for a video card.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid mid-range card for 2008

Pros: Accelero Passive cooling does an excellent job and is 100% silent. This card is a great value in mid-range cards. It's not the fastest thing out there, but it's fairly cheap, doesn't produce too much heat, and can play modern games at 1920x1200. I have played a few hours of Bioshock on this card and my GPU temp only reached 56^C in a case with poor airflow.

Cons: The huge passive heatsink on this card is too large to fit in some PC cases. It fit in my Lian-Li, but not in my girlfriends Compaq Presario OEM computer. The heatsink would also prevent an SLI bridge from being used, although the soft copper could probably be easily modified.

Other Thoughts: About equal performance to 8800 series cards. However, one will still perform 8600GTs in SLI. SLI (and Crossfire) only make sense for those willing to buy two high end cards while they are still cutting edge.

2 out of 5 eggsGood card, bad service.

Pros: Cheap, good card, slightly overclocked out of the box.

Cons: VERY Large. Came in horrible condition. Heat sink was bent up and almost falling off, came in a plain box barely wrapped with NO CD or cables or manual as boasted. Just the card in a static bag. Cannot get my mobo to recognize it without the utility driver on the disk (different from the nvidia driver).

Repackaging it now to send back to newegg, extremely unsatisfied.

Other Thoughts: This card is amazing, all my trouble was from newegg. Extrememly let down that I have to wait for shipping again. This card had me excited! I would buy it again if I knew it would come in good condition!

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect, except for SLI

Pros: Cool, cool, and just ..., well, keeps the card cool.

Cons: Won't work in SLI, unless there's some sort of SLI bridge that I am not aware of. Standard SLI bridges don't fit.

Other Thoughts: Ok, so if you try to fit this in a HTPC, or SSF case, then yeah, it won't fit, HELLOOOOO!!!

If you are a REGULAR tower case, it will fit just fine. I am using it in an Antec 900 (which is one of the more narrow cases out there), and it fits just fine.

1 out of 5 eggsEngineering team was smoking too much crack

Pros: Perfect card for computers without cases.

Cons: Won't fit in a case. Not good for computers with cases.

Other Thoughts: If you ever see a computer without a case, let me know.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: I have this card installed I waited to write a review until I played with it. I run all my games, CoD4, Battlefield Series, Medal of Honor Airborne, Frontlines: Fuel of War, and Company of Hereos at full speed with no lag. I can also run FRAPS in game with no lag as well at 60fps.

Cons: The drivers are worthless download them directly from NVidia.

Other Thoughts: Wasn't too sure about the cooler so I replaced it with a Thermaltake waterblock since I have liquid cooling.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for gaming

Pros: This is a fantastic card, especially for the price. It can run just about anything I throw at it at the highest settings (haven't tried crysis yet, though), and it's silent. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is looking for a powerful card while trying to keep the noise down.

Cons: I wouldn't turn down some more memory, but I'll live. The card is also a little big, but it shouldn't be a problem unless you have a small case.
