This review is from: BIOSTAR V9502GT51 GeForce 9500 GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
Pros: Great graphics for the price. You usually don't need the very latest graphics card, so buy a couple of models behind and save. PCI Express 2.0 interface. Fairly short, so fits in most cases, even mine, which barely holds a mATX motherboard. It runs fairly cool, even without a fan, keeping the computer nice and quiet.
Cons: The heat sink is big and tall, as one would expect with such a graphics card. Therefore, it covers up another expansion slot, which is a bit problematic in my case due to the low number of slots. Luckily, I don't foresee buying more than the one remaining slot of other expansion cards.
Other Thoughts: Sped up my Vista Home Premium computer tremendously and let me bump up the quality of my game graphics. Boosted my Windows Experience Index to 4.7 from the 3.0 of my integrated graphics. If you want a fairly cheap performance boost for Vista, definitely go for it.
