5 out of 5 eggsWorks fine for me

Pros: My first PC build and it worked great. Didn't try to overclock or run in SLI, but may do that later. Direct X 10 support worked fine in Vista, but had to install drivers after Vista installed, then run compatibility test to get full Aero graphics.

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: Using Foxconn C51XEM2AA-8EKRS2H MOB, 2 GB, AMD-4800+ Brisbane.

5 out of 5 eggsEven Better

Pros: This card can Overclock faster than the other 8600GT's. If you OC this, it's just as fast as an 8600GTS. If you're running on Vista, upgrade to the 158.45 beta driver, it's alot better so far. 8600's can SLI, 8500's can't.

Cons: Like I said, NONE! Lol.

Other Thoughts: Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+ 2.01 OC'd @ 2.50GHz cooled by a Scythe SCSMZ-1100 92mm Sleeve CPU Cooler
RAM: A|Data 2GB DDR2 800 cooled by a Corsair CMXAF1 Cooling System
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-M57SLI-S4 nForce570 SLI
GPU: Foxconn GeForce 8600GT 256MB stock HS/F
HDD: Samsung SpinPoint P Series 200GB SATA, Western Digital Caviar 40GB IDE
Display: Samsung SyncMaster 906BW 1440x900 DVI-D
Case: APLUS CS-188AF

2 out of 5 eggsNot that good

Pros: nice fan, quite operation, DX10

Cons: 128bit interface, no overclock headroom, glitches and artifacts in splinter Cell double agent.

Other Thoughts: POOR PERFORMANCE in everything I ran, even at 1024x768. Had artifacts and glitches with no overclock. No overhead to overclock either. Does not work well with Vista. Returned for ATI x1950GT, beats it hands down and better price.

5 out of 5 eggsGREAT CARDS

Pros: Great performance vs. price ratio. Both cards i got are working and are in SLI mode. Plays BF2 flawlessly. GDDR3... Well all i can say is that this is a wonderful card for me, and hopefully you if you get one.

Cons: 128 bit... 256 mem... the fans are huge!!!!! this may not seem like a con, but paired with the XION stacker case... my second card is really close to the bottom of the case. But what can you do.

Other Thoughts: set up: Xion Stacker Case, EVGA 680 SLI Special Edition Motherboard. Pentium D 935 3.2Ghz Dual Core Proc. Patriot Extreme Performance single 2GB DDR2 800 mem. Dual Geforce 8600GT graphic cards. 250 GB hard drive. With 8 fans total cooling this baby. Next step is going to get an aftermarket heatsink and fan for proc. But overall system stays cool with all cooling going on.

5 out of 5 eggsUpdate on Wrong Card Issue

Pros: Newegg Got it straightened out! The correct card (8600GT as originally ordered) arrived today. As I said previously, you can depend on Newegg.

Cons: None. Card does what it's supposed to do.

Other Thoughts: Newegg went the extra mile, as usual.

3 out of 5 eggsFor Lucky Owners of this product.

Pros: Looks nice, never actually got one after two attempts in ordering. Kept getting the 8500GT.

Cons: Never got to play with one of these.

Other Thoughts: My 2nd attempt was the last straw for getting this 8600GT. I kept getting the 8500GT version on back to back orders. took the RMA, but I was somewhat upset on how I had to deal with a repeat mistake. Customer service was not entirely friendly which was a shock to me - 5 years with Newegg and never had bad experience with Customer service until this time.

4 out of 5 eggsOrdered 8600 GT Got 8500 GT

Pros: At the price, an 8600 GT would be a good deal. At the same price, an 8500 GT is not and it's been returned

Cons: Got the wrong product, as reported by others here. There must be a mixup in the warehouse.

Other Thoughts: 4 eggs because I have faith that Newegg will make it right in due time.

2 out of 5 eggsIffy

Pros: It's cheap. Seems like a good deal on paper.

Cons: It's cheap. The first one I received was missing a heatsink mounting screw (how does THAT get past QA?), but I installed it anyway to try it out. World of WarCraft would freeze and lock up the system after a couple minutes of play and S.T.A.L.K.E.R. would show corrupted textures and geometry after playing a while. Dark Messiah of Might and Magic didn't exhibit any problems, however, so the issue may be contributable to drivers as well. The replacement from Newegg (which came with all four heatsink screws) ran perfectly fine for 2 days and then also began exhibiting significant imagery corruption. Needless to say, I'm a bit leery of this card and will be returning it.

Other Thoughts: I won't go so far as to say this particular 8600gt model's too good to be true, but "caveat emptor" certainly applies.

2 out of 5 eggsGot 2 8500 GT's instead

Pros: None because I didn't use it, they sent me two of the 8500 gt's from Foxconn.

Cons: I wouldn't be as worried if they had only sent my one of the wrong product, but both my and my roommate picked this up and got an 8500 gt. I think this product is mislabeled.

Other Thoughts: At first I thought I had made a mistake, but my and my roommates packing slips and orders said 8600 gt, but the box said 8500 gt.

5 out of 5 eggsCaught off guard

Pros: this card is amazing. its a DX 10 card and you get way more bang for the buck. i play every game i have on max settings and the resolution at 1152x864 and i run at the lowest...75FPS!! another great x600 card from Nvidia. They sure do know how to deliver. IT COMES WITH AN SLI BRIDGE!!!!!!

Cons: im not picky about the smallest things like most people. there are NONE AT ALL :D!

Other Thoughts: the set up really makes a difference. i run on an AMD Athlon 64 X2 3800+, 2GB Dual Channel RAM on a nforce570SLI board so thats a beneficial factor.
