4 out of 5 eggsfor the price... perfect

Pros: this replaced a 9600 that died on me, i feel pretty comfortable knowing it has a lifetime warranty, low power so you dont need to have a 6-pin attatched, really quiet!!!!! the price was good too, plus free shipping. i really dont do too much pc gaming (at least untill StarCraft 2 and Diablo 3 come out) so i run dual-monitors (21.5 HD) primarily for multimedia and productivity in which case it works like a champ

Cons: my 9600 was a bit more powerful than this, i'm going to contribute this to the fact that it isnt a powered graphics card, it isnt something that is a complete downer, but yeah....

Other Thoughts: i changed jobs and my card died so for like the past 3 months i was without my desktop, i did take a paycut so i didnt want to spend alot of money for the card. this card was on sale with free shipping, for the basics that i use it for its a great card, there better cards out there for like $150+ but that was just money i didnt want to spend. i know that ATI cards have some good prices on them but i didnt really know anything about the differences between them so i decided to stay with what i knew (nvidia) and i have not been let down!

5 out of 5 eggs5/5

Pros: This card was a steal at $70. Upgraded from an 8500GT and the difference is unbelievable. While it is an old card it still runs most games at max settings perfectly. I was able to play Crysis at Very High settings with 4x AA. Most importantly, this card does not require external power from the PSU.

Cons: It does run a little hot, 60°C idle and 72°C under load, but I haven't had any problems yet. Some suggest replacing the stock thermal paste with a higher quality one but be aware that doing so will void the warranty.

Other Thoughts: Completely satisfied, I was a little worried due to the low amount of reviews but this is a great card. Will definitely buy from BFG Tech again.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't waste your time...

Pros: Not sure. It's small? It doesn't use much power?

Cons: Runs very hot. Fan is minimal, barely works. Mine would power down 5 minutes after post unless the fan was set to 100% and the core/memory was underclocked severely. Don't buy into the whole "Eco-Friendy" tagline. They just include a cheaper, smaller fan so on one hand it uses less power, but on the other hand it runs hotter, will die much quicker, and will also heat up all the other components in your case. I wouldn't say polluting the earth with dead videocards is eco-conscious.

Other Thoughts: Also, I bought this new but it shipped from Newegg's RMA department. Sketchy? Of course it didn't work, but all the proof is in the card itself of it being a bit of a ripoff. Buy a regular 9800 GT.

5 out of 5 eggsBetter than expected

Pros: Works as good or better than expected. Runs games on an older system without a problem. Low power useage makes it suitable for older systems.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I bought this card to upgrade an older system for my son to play COD-MW2 and Fallout 3. It's just an Athlon 64 X2 4200+ with 2GB of RAM and a 400W power supply, but this card lets him run these games at near-max high settings at 1280x1024. I was very pleasantly surprised!

5 out of 5 eggsNot a bad card

Pros: Price.Works out of box,does what it supposed to do.$79.99 is good,and lifetime warrany,can't beat it.Not a gamer,just looking for some nice decent card with good price and energy saving.This one fitts the bill,does everything I need.Also I can OC this card with MSI Afterburb software without any problem,but I don't need it.

Cons: Little warm,heard about it,but warmer than what I expect.Card is small,had a small fan.No egg deducted due to price & perform.

Other Thoughts: Had three MSI cards:9600GT 1G,9800GT 1G & ATI 4770 512MB.They all bigger than this card & had much bigger fans.Use MSI Afterburn software to make fan run at 65% speed to maintain temperature at 44C for everyday use.This is the temperature when MSI cards run at 35% fan speed.Bottom line,depends what you want,this card is not a bad card,even fan run at 65% speed,it still quite.

5 out of 5 eggsSLI performers

Pros: Easy SLI hookup and install, wonderful video quality for the price. Runs warcraft at 1650x1050 flawlessly on max settings.

Cons: Does not have a SLI bridge in the box, make sure to pick one up if you plan on running 2.

Other Thoughts: BFG has been in my lineup of gaming computers for quite some time now, and have yet to give me a reason to remove them.

5 out of 5 eggsSweet card

Pros: Runs Age of Conan DX10 maxxed out. That in itself is impressive, especially considering the price. Doesn't need any additional power from the PSU.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Fantastic card for the price.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy This Card!!

Pros: None. It's a under-clocked piece of junk.

Cons: I bought this because it was on sale for 79.99. It subsequently fried my mobo and proceeded to self-destruct or whatever nasty video cards do to kill themselves.

I had to drive out to a certain store to buy a PNY 9800GT which not only has 1GB of memory instead of 512, but actually works.

Other Thoughts: I know this card is cheap, I do! But spend the extra 5-10 bucks and buy a decent card. BFG is terrible, and their support is non-existent. I will NEVER buy another BFG product. We hates them, precious....

5 out of 5 eggsnot a bad card

Pros: Not a bad card for the price, iddr3 memory, sli capable, nice amount of Cuda cores for exceptional performance, with card will make a nice addition to my Asus P5N-D board that I just bought from Newegg and cooler master case. I have purchased a lot of things from Newegg and have not been disappointed with the speed of delivery. I bought a Diablotek 900W power supply from tiger direct when I purchased the video card from Newegg, my PSU took almost a week longer to get to me. With the speed of delivery I may consider Newegg the only online tech retailer to purchase from. They can be spendy at time but if you need something fast they can usually get it to within in a more than reasonable time limit.

Cons: No direct X 10.1 or 11 support, but at this price and with the cost of a higher video card, I am sure this card will do the job and I have to I can SLI another 9800GT card. at 79.99 why not.

Other Thoughts: I did a little home work on the card to get my bang for tmy buck and I think I really have at this point. If someone asked to suggest a card that was near high end and amazingly cheap. I would suggest this card.

5 out of 5 eggsdecent for moderate to high gaming

Pros: 112 cores and ddr3; only 16 less cores away from the 9800gtx.

Cons: No directx 11 and runs a little warm in an antec 300 case complete with all fans.

Other Thoughts: installed driver from nvidia website but it didnt installed the physx so i had to installed it seperately from nvidia.com
