5 out of 5 eggs6 years of usage, still kicking

Pros: Dependable. Still plays new games which is awesome for 6yr old video card.

Cons: some what loud fan when it's running at max capacity.

Other Thoughts: I use my computer everyday, at least 300 days out of a year. Most times I leave it on for 6~12 hours.
Noting that, this video card still works perfectly fine and have not ran into warning sign saying 'your video card cannot play this game' messages, I'd say I'm pretty happy with this guy.
But I'm sure I'll upgrade for 'better' performance before 10yr mark.

1 out of 5 eggsThese are WORTHLESS

Pros: The cards look nice on paper...

Cons: The specs on these looked good. m But I have had nothing but problems with these things. One would think that running 2 of these on SLI would provide excellent results but with 2 gig of RAM each I crash while running any MMO's. Nothing like getting a blue screen for a memory issue when one has 6 Gigs of RAM on top of the 4 gigs of V-ram 2 cards have to make your day.

Other Thoughts: In closing...SPARKLE SUCKS. I've checked and their products never fail to disappoint. This is the last time I ever try to save a few bucks by buying a off brand product.

This card is the best bang for the buck I've ever seen

Cons: when you first turn on the computer its very very loud sounds like a vacume cleaner but once you install the new drivers from nvidia and windows loads it very quiet

Other Thoughts: it didn't make any sense to blow alot of money on a new card because Direct-X 11 cards will be coming out in spring maybe summer 2010 this will tide me over till then

this card is AMAZING for 2 gigs at 94 bucks

4 out of 5 eggs"Sparkle"

Pros: Cheap as dirt, 2 solid gigs of vid memory made for jaw-dropping increase in preformance from my nvidia 8800GTS. (however - the GTS Still works, and will be my emergency spare)

Cons: terrible software/drivers CD

Other Thoughts: go straight to the nvidia site, download the latest drivers, UNPACK the .exe, and be sure to fully remove all nvidia drivers and software before you attempt to install new ones
When first installed, the fan sounds TERRIBLY loud. Fear not, once the drivers are installed it's volume is halved.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Graphics and speed

Pros: This is my second geforce videocard and I have to say, it greatly improved the speed of graphics, games, video, and photo programs.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: If your into games or video and photo creations, this card is a must to invest in. It has great color and what you see on your monitor will print out the same.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat for CUDA

Pros: This card is excellent as a co-processor, it can multiply floating point
2-D matrices (500x30)x(30x800) in about 3 seconds! which is 461x times faster
than my current Sempron processor. The great amount of memory is the only limit
for the matrix sizes.

Cons: none so far.

Other Thoughts: although this is not the best performance chip from nVidia
it lets you do some really serious math crunching per buck.
working in M2N-LR motherboard, 2 Gigs of RAM.
