5 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: Cheap, and allows computers with lower watt psu's to have better performance.

Cons: small cooler, runs a little hot.

Other Thoughts: To the person who compained that this has GDDR2, guess what, all 512mb 8600GT's do. Only some of the 256meg 8600's have GDDR3.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks for me

Pros: Easy to install, and then worked perfectly, good price w/ $20 rebate

Cons: It should be obvious that this isn't the card if you're looking for the most up-to-date graphics card--that's not me, however.

Other Thoughts: This upgraded an E-Machines T6216 with integrated Nvidia Geforce 6100 graphics. Bascially bought this so my son could run the game "Spore", which we had to run on all the lowest graphics settings, with better graphics quality and performance. The card has made a dramatic difference in performance and quality, and I am very pleased as is my son. Of course NewEgg came through with fast shipping--ordered late on a Saturday afternoon, received (in Illinois) the following Thursday.

3 out of 5 eggsKind of slow

Pros: Works as described here, no real problems. But the devil is in the details... read on.

Cons: This model uses DDR2 memory, not DDR3! This causes this card to run at about half the speed of benchmarks you'll find on the web for "8600 GT", and also results in much lower memory stats than what's listed on the nVidia product page (memory clock running at 266mhz instead of 700mhz, and bandwidth 8.5GB/sec instead of 22.4GB/sec).

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a middle-of-the-line card for cheap, then this cards not bad at all. But if you're looking for great performance in the latest games, skip this card due to the DDR2 memory. Also beware that MOST 8600 GTs use DDR3 memory, whereas this one does not; be very careful of this when reading about it on the web.
