BFG lives up to their reputation again. This GeForce 8600GT based card comes with 256MB of super fast GDDR3 memory. Designed to be used with GDDR3 memory, it can also run with the previous generation GDDR2, albeit more slowly. You might save money going with another brand, but your video performance could be up to 80% faster if you had gone with a GDDR3 based card.

Along with startlingly fast memory, BFG overclocked the GPU from 540MHz to 565MHz for maximum speed. The memory clock runs at a fast 1400MHz, so the card is screaming no matter how you look at it. All this power and speed could cause heat issues, but the ThermoIntelligence fansink keeps the GPU up to 18°C cooler than with the reference cooling system.

Two dual-link DVI-I ports with HDCP support let you attach today’s biggest monitors or TVs. There's also an S-Video port for component video connections. And what are you going to do with the large monitors besides watch movies in HD? Play the latest DX10 video games, of course! BFG brings it altogether for a tour-de-GeForce card!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great Card. This will be my second card that I'm purchasing(For SLI). It idles at 50C seems high but its the stock fan and I have it set to 625/900 but otherwise ON MAX SETTINGS I get 60fps+ on WoW, 75~100fps Bioshock, 70~900fps D2, 55~65fps HGL, 60~75+ FEAR (Remember thats on max settings) Just to name a few games

Cons: Came out with the 512mb after I had already bought this one and to far out to send it back.

Other Thoughts: Running AMD X2 5600+ OC @ 3Ghz, 4GB PC6400 G.Skill RAM OC @ 900Mhz, GIGABYTE GA-M55SLI-S4, 650 Watt PSU, and with soon to be 2x BFG 8600GT In SLI

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Running Bioshock on full.
Only slight lag due to bottlenecking of my Pentium 4 processor. Cool cool cool, running at 45 C

Cons: UPS 3 day shipping took 2 weeks. Couldn't find it in any way to be factory over clocked. Checked it with ATI tool, 500 core, 700 any other.

5 out of 5 eggsImpressive upgrade

Pros: Easy install and setup. Excellent color and speed. BFG lifetime warranty is second to none. Single bay design makes it easy to fit if you have tight space issues. Installation for the card and drivers is painless and fast. Color and framerate are incredible for the money.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: This is the second BFG card I have owned. First card was an Nvidia 5600 Ultra (flipchip) in my second PC. The company really knows how to pull out the performance per dollar out of each product they sell. This card replaced an integrated Nvidia 6100 that was already working well. But I wanted more power for the high settings in the games I play. Love the card, love the company and love Newegg.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: Excellent GPU, not to much heat...Decent bang for the buck...the GPU takes over clocking extremely well...and the DDR3 memory does not get hot at all, the Heat sink and Fan have a relatively small footprint and allow room to breathe insidse the case...AND THE FINAL thing that really does it, is the fact that the fan is variable and dont constantly spin at 3000Rpms....which is mostly due to the driver more than likely...Works well with Riva Tuner, as well

Cons: None........

4 out of 5 eggsGood Card, Cheap Price

Pros: Plays Great on any game out today, Low Cost, DirectX10, Doesn't get too hot.

Cons: Only con is it can't do Anti-Analyzing.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from a X300, and wow what a difference. I can play basically any game on high settings and still get around a 30FPS benchmark. The only problem i have is anti-analyzing. I usually don't use this feature, because honestly i don't see the difference, but anyone that does use this, don't get this card.
