1 out of 5 eggsDead On Arrival, Everytime

Pros: It has the GeForce name.

Cons: I got 1 of these and it was DOA. RMA was great, but the next one was also DOA. The third one I got worked, but was incompatible with my AMD chipset so it didn't matter. Wouldn't buy again, too many problems.

4 out of 5 eggsGood basic card

Pros: No fan, decent price, decent specs

Cons: Yet to be determined durability

Other Thoughts: Only took off an egg due to not being able to comment on the durability. I disagree with 5-egg reviews from so-called above average tech guys who haven't owned the product for any length of time.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Card works as expected in XP and OS X (it's a hackintosh). I get great framerates in iRacing with low detail.

Cons: No issues so far... but not the most powerful card. You can probably do better for the money these days.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great Card for the $$$$ Pretty cool running for only having a heat sink...It is still running great since 1/28/09!!!

Cons: Driver Issues with Vista 64 bit, but then everything has driver issues with vista... My card has a huge heat sink..takes up extra space, where if it had a smaller heat sink n fan...(Use Win 7!!!!!)

Other Thoughts: If your going for cheap, this has been a stable card for the money, 128 bit so what is there to complain about. Used it to build basic gaming system 3 years ago without having to take a loan out or sell one of my kidneys... System: AMD 3.1 Athlon 64 x2, 4gig Kingston Hyperx RAM,Gigabyte MA770-UA3 motherboard,320 gig HD.....Still a viable system today

4 out of 5 eggsWorks like a charm in Ubuntu 10.04 LTS

Pros: Had no problems booting, having it recognized, getting both monitors set up, etc. in up-to-date Ubuntu 10.04 LTS. Total snap -- pure plug and play.

Good thermal interface as-is. Replacing the stock paste with Arctic Silver 5 only dropped "idle" temp about 1-2 degrees.

Lets me play Gratuitous Space Battles and Torchlight under Wine with very high framerates. Both of these were cranky with my 7050.

Cons: The heat sink is as large as billed. Blocks one PCI slot and several of the SATA ports on my micro-ATX motherboard. If I had more SATA drives I'd have to perform surgery on the heat sink with a Dremel cutter to make it work.

DVI sometimes seems to have problems synching with my AOpen F90JS. I occasionally get a wavery, distorted display. Not sure if this is a hardware synch issue, a drivers issue or a monitor / cabling issue. Turning the monitor off and on fixes it.

Other Thoughts: Running on a double-headed Ubuntu 10.04 LTS system. Used it to replace an on-board nVidia 7050 chipset so I could multi-head and have a video card that wasn't utter bare bones.

Double heading works fine. Indirect rendering causes serious lag when multi-heading -- if you have problems with low desktop framerates using compiz, make sure you don't have indirect rendering set. (you can check / change this under Compiz Options with the Compiz Fusion Icon from the package of the same name).

Monitor says it runs at ~43C. I don't think this card is a good candidate for OCing unless you add an active heat sink.

I would say this card is 'moderately good'. It provides good performance for a low price, balance by the ginormous heat sink. I think the occasional crankiness synching with DVI is probably more my rig than the card but it's something to be thinking about if you think the machine might hard reboot frequently.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing card.

Pros: My 8600gt OC starting having loud fan noise issues so i decided to find something that matched its performance but i wanted to try a fanless gpu for the first time. So i figured a 9500gt would be near it. I couldnt be more impressed. Its runs every single game my 8600gt did but it seems to run it more smoothly. Also Ran the new Back to the future game on max perfectly and that along side my single core AMD cpu!.

I needed a quick fix because i use the my vga monitor and my tv sometime for video watching. The VGA input is crystal clear even more so then my old 8600gt that i was using with a vga to dvi adapter. If ya want something that equals a 8600gt but will never have a fan issue get this. Runs at the same temps as my fanned 8600gt.

Cons: There was only one annoyance with this, once i put the card in and booted up it would not display a picture, at first i thought i was faulty but it was actually the onboard motherboard gpu that reactivated. So i plugged my monitor into my motherboard output and deactivated it via the system device menu, rebooted and the card has worked perfectly. I even uninstalled the driver and updated to a new one and it recognized it just fine.

Other Thoughts: Fan noise issues has always happened with every fan based gpu ive ever bought. I was worried about a fanless gpu but man i think ill always go fanless for now on. I always buy the Mid level cards so fanless shouldn't be hard to find. All i know is that fanless is my new fan. Super silent and no worry about it getting loud. Also for the person who said the VGA port had no contrast you must of got a bad card, my VGA and DVI ports both work great crystal clear.

Also i have a 300 watt Power Supply and this runs fine.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card for the price.

Pros: -Cheap Price
-Easy to install and update drivers
-Runs without generating too much heat

Cons: -Towards the Lower end of the spectrum for graphics cards (hey, you get what you pay for).

Other Thoughts: Great as a cheap card. Bought for my wife to play WOW on. She's able to run at High Settings and stay steady at 35+ FPS.

(she had a horrible on-board shared memory video card before :( )

5 out of 5 eggsNo Noise

Pros: Great Price.
No Noise.
Supports my dual 23" monitors with no problem.

Cons: No SLI unlike it's fan-cooled 9500 GT brothers.

Other Thoughts: Not a beast but at this price you can't beat it's performance per dollar.

4 out of 5 eggsok

Pros: price was good. Ran BFBC2 pretty well on windows 7 32bit with 2 gigs of DDR2 ram.

Cons: mine only came with 300 mhz for memory clock, instead of 400 like advertised.

Other Thoughts: After install of windows 7 64bit and 2 more gigs of ram, runs a little slower. Noticing lags more in during explosions and smoke. Anywhere from 20-60 FPS for BFBC2 on med/low settings.

5 out of 5 eggsOC's pretty good

Pros: Runs wonderfully smooth with 263.06 developer drivers and a nibitor edited bios. bumped up the core clock to 650mhz the shader clock to 1625 and left the memory at 400. No complaints AT ALL! Runs everything I throw at it with the exception of a few. Resident evil 5 street fighter 4 lost planet will at least run on medium or high settings.

Cons: Didnt come with acceptable heatsink grease...(there was none) so first thing I did and usually do was add some arctic silver compound.

Other Thoughts: for the price I feel like I purchased a 9800gt. of course i had to do A LOT of tweaking but im smiling all the way to the bank.
