5 out of 5 eggsgreat little card

Pros: Fast, low power usage, silent, inexpensive.

Cons: Only Double Lifetime warrenty? I want triple lifetime!
No fan + heavy usage = possible problems. If you plan on gaming then give it some ventilation.

Other Thoughts: I buy lots of 8400GS cards for my cad users that want 2 monitors and no 3D, so I naturally put a 8400GS in my "small" computer to see how it worked. My small computer is powered by a picoPSU so I can't put anything power-hungry into it. The 8400 could handle basic games and low resolution 3D, but when I loaded Defense Grid it was obvious I was asking too much from it. I decided to try 1 step up from there and put this 9400 GT in as it is still fairly power stingy in idle but with more under the hood when needed.
Running heavy 3D on any fanless card is asking a bit much, but I don't like small noisy fans, so I strapped a 120mm fan to the heat sink of this card (the sink is huge for the type of card, very impressive). It's running Defense Grid at 1920x1200 at Medium settings stunningly fast. I've not tried Portal 2 on it (and see no reason why I would as the "big" computer is more suited for those games), but for a $50 card for basic game requirements this is a great buy.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat budget card if you don't need 3d

Pros: Silent

Just works

Does 2D stuff alright

Cons: 3D performance is laughable. Don't buy this and expect to play games.

(this is not really a con, as it should be expected from a low end card like this)

Other Thoughts: Probably a great card for HTPC's since it is is quiet.

1 out of 5 eggsFlawed by design

Pros: Low price.

Cons: This card has a large heat sink directly over some surface mounted parts. Most of the parts have enough clearance, but there is at least one part that does not.

Even with the card in a closed case with mounting screws in place, a good bump on the video cable is enough to short out the part and fry it. But the resistor glows pretty brightly when it does.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately, the card sat for a few weeks before I installed it, then within about a week after installation it was toasted. Given the 30-day policy, I'm out 50 clams for a piece of junk.

This was the first XFX part I'd ever bought, and it will be the last.

3 out of 5 eggsSub-par s-video output

Pros: Fanless, physX support, CUDA, decent 3d performance for an htpc card at non HD resolutions

Cons: The s-video output is just awful (flicker and overall quality) and the card seems a little over-priced. nVidia's drivers also don't have much in the way of support for tweaking s-video output.

Other Thoughts: I built a small HTPC for the guest bedroom which has an old 26" Sony CRT TV. The lower end ATI cards (I have a 2400pro and a 4350 with svideo) put out a nearly flicker-free, high quality and very adjustable picture. However, they are pretty bad at any gaming and AFAIK, no video decoders take special advantage of ATI's hardware... so I found one of the very few nVidia cards out that's also fanless but has CUDA for CoreCodec acceleration.

I know svideo is obsolete, but if nvidia is going to support it (even if only on low end cards) then it should be better prepared to eliminate the flicker that is inherent to that type of output... as well as being able to manage screen size and positioning (overscan, etc.). It has very limited ability to do this and the acceleration advantage from CUDA assisted decoding just isn't worth the inferior picture.

The other outputs on the card work fine, but I bought it specifically for svideo out.

3 out of 5 eggsWin7 only gets 4.0 out of 7.9

Pros: Passive cooling. Warranty.

Cons: Sluggish performance in Windows 7. Only gets a 4.0 for Desktop performance for Windows Aero, however gets a 5.8 for 3D business and gaming graphics performance. Played Sims 3 on it for a few minutes and it didn't run too well.

Other Thoughts: Running i5 750, 8GB Gskill ripsaw 1333mhz DDR, and Intel P55 MB, and RAID0 two 160GB HDD w/8mb cache. Should run well but doesn't. The entire Win7 stats are:
CPU: 7.3; RAM: 7.5; Graphics: 4.0; Gaming graphics: 5.8, Hard disk: 5.9

4 out of 5 eggsFolding@Home Card

Pros: I've been using these cards to improve my Folding@Home farm. This is the third card I've put into one box and I'll be trying PCI versions for some older boxes. The card provides approximately 1300 PPD. Drop 3 of them in a box and you've got a pretty capable system made up of bargain cards. It's also passively cooled so it's quiet.

Cons: The card is passively cooled and the heat sink could be better. I've been running it full speed for a while and it hasn't skipped a step, but it gets pretty toasty.

Other Thoughts: I've upgraded a mediocre 2 year old Intel system to produce the same folding performance as a 4 core Mac Pro for 1/4 the price. Because of the low end nature of these cards and their passive heatsink I haven't had any fears about power supplies.

2 out of 5 eggsXFX - Solid Design, Horrible Customer Support

Pros: Great card. Nvidia has a solid chipset. XFX cards appear to have a quality design.

Cons: Every computer I build is specifically sold with XFX card(s), until recently. I had a customer return a computer for repairs. The card had 3 popped capacitors, from normal use. It is IMPOSSIBLE to get in contact with XFX support, IMPOSSIBLE! There is no phone number to contact them, you have to create an account on the XFX website and put in a support ticket. Afterward, your "status" is "being reviewed with tech support" for days! No response. Cross your fingers that if you buy an XFX card that is does not need repair/replacement.

Manufacturer Response:

We are sorry to hear that you have had a problem. Generally, online support requests are replied to in 48 hours or less of when they are submitted. If you have an urgent problem please contact our support team by phone at 800-880-3225. Thank you.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat entry level graphics card

Pros: This card performed beautifully as a low end graphics card. This would be a perfect solution for someone looking for a cheap capable graphics card that doesn't want the fan noise that occurs with larger cards.
Will easily run older or simpler games such as WOW, BF Heroes or any of the valve games.
The card is small and like one other reviewer stated the card is attached to the heatsink not the other way around lol. It installs in any case very easily. (I actually put it in two different machines for different purposes * see below)

Cons: I purchased this card and intended to use it as a 3rd card in my machine for dedicated PhysX. I don't know the exact reason why but once I put this card in my RAM's windows experience index score plummeted from a lofty 5.9 to a measly 4.5! I tried everything I could to investigate the possible reason and researched the problem for a week finding very little helpful information. Once I removed this card my score went back up to normal.

Other Thoughts: The problems I had were most likely not a problem with the card itself, but some limitation in the technology in my system parts, or possibly some simple setting being wrong that I couldn't find. My advice for those of you that are considering purchasing a dedicated physx card to add to an SLI setup: wait until they improve the compatibility or more games fully support the technology. It just seems to cause more headaches than it is worth. If you have 2 cards running in SLI you should in most cases be able to take advantage of Physx in games anyway.

*My systems specs*
Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 3.0 GHZ processor
XFX 790i Ultra SLI Mobo
4 GB DDR3 1333 Corsair RAM (discontinued product on Newegg now)
