2 out of 5 eggsWorked great... then....

Pros: Worked as advertised. I don't game at all, so I never really stressed this thing.

Cons: Crapped out after roughly two years of modest use. I would have put one star but it did give me my money's worth.

Other Thoughts: I'll never buy SPARKLE again.

3 out of 5 eggsVery good card but.........

Pros: CD driver install without issues. Downloaded most recent drivers from Nvidia website... no problems.
Compact card. powered by PCIe bus. love card design.

Cons: LOUD card when considering I only use it for web surfing, you tube video, etc. No gaming......... card is much louder than my CPU fan (single)... I find it to be irritating. RMA'ed the first unit but replacement the same way. Fan too loud for "routine" use. Wish I could turn down the fan speed.

Other Thoughts: Standard return policy (did know) does not cover this "problem" unfortunately as I would swap for a quieter Sparkle card in a minute.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent Card for the Price

Pros: Able to run games at a much higher resolution with all DX 9 settings enabled.

FPS rate is astounding, especially on games that my previous card choked on.

Cons: Fan is loud, but that is to be expected.

Other Thoughts: Replaced a dead nVidia GeForce 7300 series card with this.

Well worth the investment if you're short on money and need a good videocard.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Card For The Price

Pros: Price: Defiantly worth the price.
I purchased this same exact card from a friend for $25, but I would've paid $69 if I were to order new. Honestly, the card is worth the full price. Great for any gamers on a budget.

Performance: Extremly FPS on older games, and very decent FPS on newer games. It plays GTA San Andreas MAXED out like a charm, and runs GTAIV, Left 4 Dead 2, and World of Warcraft well.

Sexy Look: I honestly think this card is sleek n' sexy. Very sturdy construction.

Requires NO additional connections to your PSU; the card seems to pull enough from the PCI-E slot with no problem!
and this card does spot 1GB of video memory; nice addition to this product.

HDMI and Audio Through HDMI Support: Works flawlessly with my Toshiba 32" 720p TV. Has a DVI, VGA, and HDMI Port, so there are plenty of ways you can connect this card to a wide array of displays.

Cons: When using a DVI to HDMI adapter, things tend to get a bit annoying.
If you use one of these adapters, the lower half of your desktop display will be cut off, no matter what resolution you set it at.

As for games, there are no cut-offs.
If you do not use an adapter to convert to HDMI, your good to go.

Other Thoughts: Works great with my setup!
Before this card, I had an ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro with 256mb of video memory, so this was a well needed upgrade, and easy on the wallet, too.

5 out of 5 eggsCheap good DDR3 card

Pros: The cheapest(price wise) Geforce 200 series you can get with DDR3, and it's even 1GB.

Plays all the GTA IV games with good FPS even at 1600x1200 and medium to high settings. Low heat.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: Geforce 210 cards never had GDDR3 or DDR3. The 220 is the only low profile card with them. Also 1GB is the biggest size, I think there are 2GB DDR2 ones in 220, and 1GB DDR2 210 cards. Also other makers like PNY and EVGA equivalents are more costly. This one lasts and is a good performer, specs are almost identical where it matters.

If you want better you wont find it in a low profile 200 card, the better are all bigger cards like 250, 280, 295 etc..

5 out of 5 eggsGreat for gaming

Pros: -Completely supports latest DX
-Great GPU for your money

Cons: -A little noisy (I have 3 case fans, so I don't notice or care. I also have 5.1 surround, so I can just drown it out :) )
-Installation guide is in the most broken English I have read. It's actually kind of hard to understand because of the bad translation. It is relatively easy to get it without instructions, however. Pop in the card and then the disk, done.

Other Thoughts: I got it to play Modern Warfare 2 on, and it blows it away. All high settings with AA 2x, and it ran it flawlessly. The only time FPS went low was in high explosion scenes, things where an entire city was blowing up. Runs multi-player on same settings with a high FPS rate all around. It never dipped anywhere I could notice. I consider myself a pretty serious gamer, and for the money this card will be a worthwhile addition. Will play any game you can find resting on a store shelf. Also, I'm only playing on a PCI x16, so my bandwidth is limited. I would love to see what this card can really do.

4 out of 5 eggsDon't need SPDIF for audio over HDMI

Pros: This video card has HD audio on the video card.
So you don't need to fool around with connecting the video card to your motherboard with a SPDIF cable.

Cons: Takes up two slots but, most card do now.
Gave it only 4 eggs for using two slots.
Hint to manufactures don't use to slots if you can avoid it.

Other Thoughts: I had to set the video card to the default audio out put manually. It had the name HDMI samsung.
I guess the audio player takes its name from the HDTV it connected to.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Good Card

Pros: Very nice card, very silent wont even know its in the case, plays all of the latest games flawlessly and its not that big. No power cable needed and only need a 300 Watt power supply because of the nvidia 40nm process. Also had dual monitor support.

Cons: No SLI, but if you only have 1 PCI-E slot on your motherboard like me then it really doesn't matter
