4 out of 5 eggsGTS, not bad...

Pros: Great performance, Stock OC is worth the money. No overwhelmingly large.

Cons: You will need more video memory very soon.

Other Thoughts: got this card, and ran it for a month, after which I sold it to a friend and upgraded to a 8800ULTRA. ITs a solid card, but could barely max out the crysis beta at 1680x1050. Would be good in SLI, but personally, I went with a 8800 ULTRA. Needed more video memory.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT CHEAP DECENT CARD

Pros: AFTER A LITTLE OVERCLOCKING IS ABOUT 15% BETTER THAN 7600GT. DX10. PRICE IS BETTER THAN 7600GT. CAN Easily SLI with an 8500gt. With pencil mod GPU could only get to 711/909 which is pretty pathetic.

Cons: I actually think that if they could kill about 7 or 8 more bucks off the card it would be an amazing value pay.

Other Thoughts: FANTASTIC HOLD ME OVER FOR ANYONE LOOKING FOR 4200 ON 3DMARK 06 AT DX10 WHILE SAVING A BIT EXTRA MONEY. ALSO LESS POWER CONSUMPTION B/C MEMORY. I READ THE MEMORY CAN ACTUALLY GET TO 1100MHZ BUT I SORTA DOUBT THAT

1 out of 5 eggsJUNK

Pros: What pros

Cons: DDR2! All the biostar 8600gt's seem to be ddr2, these are nothing but slightly better 8500gt's. All the other 8600gts benchmark about double what this thing does

Other Thoughts: To the guy who said this was an awesome card you seriously need to check out any other 8600gt and you will realize what a rip off this card is.
