1 out of 5 eggsTechnical Issues

Pros: Makes a nice paperweight. Other than that, none.

Cons: Worked great for a few minutes each time I boot. Put it in a new build and did absolutely everything I could. Took heat sink off and added more thermal paste and upped fan speed so heat wasn't issue. Updated my bios and all. Used driver sweeper and then tried Nvidia drivers and Foxconn drivers. Have a 500 watt psu so definitely enough power for it. So I am assuming I just got faulty card. Paid so little for it not even worth RMAing.

Other Thoughts: Evga 9800gt sure works nice though.

5 out of 5 eggsNVIDIA does the trick!

Pros: Supports my Sharp Aquos LC-32GP1U HDTV as a Vista monitor; good WIE scores; great color.

Cons: Can't think of any offhand.

Other Thoughts: I tried an ATI 2600 card first and it worked well--WIE scores 5.6 Aero, 5.1 Gaming--but it would not boot up with my Sharp HDTV no matter what I tried. The Foxconn 8500GT works about as well as the ATI--WIE scores 5.0 Aero, 5.3 gaming--but it booted up with my Sharp HDTV on the first try. Picture is great and with full 1920x1080p, 32 bpp, 60 Hz--fills the screen with no overscan (after I diddled with the NVIDA Control Panel for a while). Highly recommended for anyone wanting to use an HDTV as a computer monitor. I'm running Intel DG965WH mb, Core 2 Duo 6600, 4 MB DRR2 RAM (567 Mhz), 2 x WD Raptor 150 GB (RAID 1). The 8500GT works perfectly with this system. WIE scores 5.3, 5.6, 5.0, 5.3, 5.8, in the usual order. I'm not a gamer--just do a lot of DTP & image editing.

4 out of 5 eggsWAIT FOR A REBATE!!!

Pros: got this card when it was about $54.99 or so and a $20 or so rebate. I wouldn't pay full price for this card only got Good-Excellent reviews because of the price to performance when it was cheaper at a better deal.

Cons: DDR2, clock speeds are not what they say

Other Thoughts: This card is overclockable to help gaming and runs good(cool) but thats all, Good for Vista users 32bit and 64bit, good all-around graphics card.

5 out of 5 eggsWorkhorse Video Card

Pros: 512MB GDDR2 & 8500gt & SLI all in a a very small package. Kind of like the little guy who doesn't look like much but who knows Taekwondo and can really do some b**t kicking! Runs scientific illustrating and animating plus photo and video processing like a dream. HDTV is very smooth. Foxware overclocking software is easy to use and allows temp monitoring and alarm setting etc. "Foxlight" disco lights are funky. I can't hear the fan.

Cons: Fox-cons :D

Other Thoughts: Huge graphics/video performance with an extremely small footprint! I have too many uses for all my express card slots to lose one to some overdressed behemoth of a video card , but then I'm not a gamer. My Foxlights stopped working :(

5 out of 5 eggsIt's on its way to my house

Pros: 512MB.
GDDR2, not DDR.
Shader 4.0 and DirectX10.
128-bit.
GeForce.
8500GT.
PCI Express x16.
SLI supported.
Under 75$.

Cons: Not an 8600, not free.
None besides that.

Other Thoughts: When this gets here, my PC Tech teacher said he will install it for me for free. So once I get a job, I'm going to buy another one of these and drop that puppy in for some SLI.
I LOVE THIS CARD CAUSE SHADER 4.0 WILL ALLOW ME TO PLAY TUROK :D

5 out of 5 eggsSecond review awsome and fun

Pros: this thing overclocks very well if your not scared to push your clockspeeds I've gotten this card to 600mhz coreclock and no more than 465 mem clock 600/465 thats awsome for the price of this card I couldnt beleive the performance in game like CS Source (stress test was over 100 FPS) and Call Of Duty 4 comparing the price to performance ratio this card rocks the fan is not loud at all, this is a very good product for the price from Foxconn.

Cons: It is only DDR2 memory not the best for gaming

Other Thoughts: this card can and will perform as well as some 8600GT's (GT not GTS)I know because I've had them, I have 2 8800GT in SLI on another sys, and I can say this is a good card.
