1 out of 5 eggsDon't Buy!

Pros: None so far.

Cons: Wouldn't send a signal to the display. Flashing blank screen for no reason after 4 months of light use. I try as many different combinations as I can, unplugging other PCI/PCI-E devices, and with No Display, and only red LED. I also tried to plug it in to my second computer motherboard with no success. come to the conclusion that for some reason, the graphics card is not recieving any power.

Other Thoughts: Usually pretty leveled headed with reviews. Not here. also i have not received rebate after 4 months of waiting. Very disappointed

5 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: Excellent card for desktop and some games. Runs Supreme Commander and C&C just fine, but not at top resolutions. Consider this a beginners 3d card and not one that a higher end gamer would use.
Easy to install and Nvidia ALWAYS keeps there drivers updated.

Cons: None

4 out of 5 eggsLooks good so far

Pros: I'm using this in a HP slimline, in which it fits perfectly (even with the TV tuner in the PCI slot). I'm using the machine as a tuner/PVR for my TV, and this card does what I expected, namely offloading nearly all of the HDTV work from the CPU. Loads were at 50% with vista graphics, 80% with recorded HDTV, and 90% with live. With this card in It's at 10%, 30%, and 40%. Also allows WoW to be played at highest settings.

Cons: Fan isn't completely silent, but it hasn't annoyed me yet. Many heatsinked cards won't fit in my system anyway.

Other Thoughts: Only reason to spend the extra cash for an 8600 is if you are into new FPS games. This is fine for HTPC and casual gaming use... Hopefully I'll feel the same way after I spring for a Bluray drive.
