4 out of 5 eggsdecent card

Pros: Small card, low power, and not a bad gamer for budget. comes with HDMI to DVI converter.

Cons: none as yet. its a budget card. does what you paid for. there is no 6-pin power needed. drawing all power thru the PCIe slot. will only be an issue if you are looking to OC the card. OCing will be limited by lack of power before you hit the limits of the GPU/RAM.

Other Thoughts: have 2 of these in a small F@H rig. low power, and they are quiet. I average 5.6k ea. PPD F@H v7 with the GT240, a moderate OC on Cuda cores/RAM. the GDDR5 seems to offset the smaller 128 bit bus, and for a casual gamer its not as bad choice. if you are looking for resolutions above 1440x900 spend more and get a more robust GPU with at least a 192-256 bit bus.

1 out of 5 eggsIt's Dead Jim...

Pros: * update to my review of 12/5/2012 *
Technical capability of video chipset (96 CUDA codres) and use of GDDR5 memory (512 MB is fine for XBMC and GDDR5 is *fast*) on this card was attractive to me for use in a "new build" Windows 7 based XBMC system "in a white box" using an Asus M3A78 Pro motherboard.

When this card did work the video quality was spectacular.

Cons: Nvidia 3D drivers keep crashing Windows 7 with this card so I removed all Nvidia drivers except the Nvidia Windows display and HDMI drivers since I was using the HDMI output to my TV. Determined the cause of the crashing to be Nvidia 3D drivers based on error messages in "blue screens".

After a marathon Windows 7 update session for this "new build" I powered it down. I powered back up 24 hours later to work on it some more. After BIOS display and Windows "splash", system would not start Windows GUI (it worked last night) and system was not accessible via Remote Desktop; complete "crash", but nothing changed in this PC in 24 hours. Checked every display output on the Zotac card, same problem. Removed this video card from system and rebooted with onboard video and did not experience any problems using the same monitors and cables.

When this card worked I checked it with GPU-Z 0.6.6 and a PCI-E 1.1@16 interface was reported.

Other Thoughts: Still not sure why this card will not boot up after sitting in a powered down PC for 24 hours. The PC is on a UPS and the motherboard standby power LED is "on" but otherwise the power switch was "off". Motherboard is verified to support PCI-E 2.0 video cards. Motherboard memory is on mobo vendor's QVL. Tried 3 different CPU, all on mobo vendor's QVL and see the same video issues in Windows 7. Ran hours of mobo memory tests, no problems. Checked power supply and a "3 month old" 600W OCZ unit is quite adequate for this system. No overclocking whatsoever in this PC.

Rechecked BIOS setup. This mobo only uses the PCI-E video card if told to use it and that was set correctly. Tried out a PCI-E video card with the "other major video chipset" and there were no problems at all.

Now I have to check the RMA status of this card and spend another $$ to send it back to Newegg if the RMA is possible and approved.

Not planning to bother with Zotac support as I doubt they would know what is wrong here.

Interesting note: This card has a RED DOT on the backplane interface metal where the video connectors are located. I wonder what that means since the other card (same model) on the same order (but now RMA'd) did not have such a RED DOT. Does not look like a QC mark, but like it was part of someone's multi-card video setup.

3 out of 5 eggsmeh

Pros: 1 out of 2 ordered actually worked. Playback of videos in XBMC on Windows looks fantastic.

Kinda strange startup in Windows 7 where this card replaced the previous "low end" Radeon-based video card. Booted up system with this card in it. Windows did not display at all. System rebooted 1 or 2 times before displaying Windows 7 screen. Noticed that Windows had downloaded and installed almost current "Windows Certified" Nvidia drivers from Windows Update.

Cons: 1 out of 2 ordered did not work at all. No "post", no "video BIOS" displayed. RMA requested. Is a 50% failure rate typical Zotac quality?

System is now very sensitive to any changes in video displays, like using a different connector on this card. Windows wants to check out the new hardware, adjust something in Windows "internals", then wants to reboot once. Very strange behavior compared to previous video card..

Other Thoughts: Clearance to card slot next to fan & heat sink of video card is almost zero. Potential for short circuit. Also would block fan on video card. In my case the next card slot is PCI and the video card heat sink almost touches it so double check where and how the cable for the video card's fan is routed.

Would have given this product 5 eggs if both cards had worked.

5 out of 5 eggsGT 240

Pros: -Extremely low power requirement; makes an excellent upgrade for older systems
-Fast GDDR5 memory
-Great price, we'll see how fast the rebate gets here
-Overclocks well
-Runs Battlefield Bad Company 2 at 1440x900 with all high settings and 4x AA/AF
-Excellent quality; felt 100x sturdier than my old 8500gt
-Runs pretty cool, 37C idle/67C load at stock speeds. OC'd, 41C idle/85C intense load(Furmark stability test with fur rendering, with only 1 80mm case fan)

Cons: -The GT 240 is the card that I've seen the most people have trouble with getting to install and run correctly. But, try not to let this discourage you too much- it's rarely because of a bad card, it just happens to be rather picky about its drivers. Make sure you update ALL of your drivers, especially chipset drivers, before you return a perfectly good card. Running a DriverAgent scan will let you know which drivers you need to update.

Other Thoughts: Once you get this card to work, which shouldn't take too long if you know what drivers you need, it is a surprisingly good card. If you have a monitor on the smaller size, <22", or if you are not planing on playing next years games at ultra high settings with 16x AA/AF, there is really no need to get a vastly more expensive card than a GT240. As for overclocking, you can expect to increase the stock clocks of 550core, 1340shader, and 1700 mem stock to AT LEAST 650 core, 1550 shader, and 2025 mem. Those were the speeds I got to(18% increase), with the worst air cooling imaginable. I would highly recommend this card for a budget system/upgrade, especially if you still have your stock factory 300W power supply.

1 out of 5 eggsToo noisy for a HTPC

Pros: Decent performance, doesn't neeed a power adapter.

Cons: Far too noisy for a HTPC. Fan is running at 35% and it's driving me nuts. I can't get it any slower. I would not recommend this card to anyone who is looking for a remotely quiet video card.

Other Thoughts: I've had Zotac cards in the past, but this one is the worst card I have owned. Stay away from this one, pick sonething else.

5 out of 5 eggsNice balanced card

Pros: Works well enough for Warcraft. Runs cool! There is no external power connector plug. All power is supplied through the PCI-e slot. Smoother than my 9500GT since it has triple the number of shaders.

Cons: Nvidia High Def Audio driver does not install on windows 2000! I have three yellow ! things in my device manager from PhysX. Everything I have tried works great so 5 eggs anyhow.

Other Thoughts: My 550W power supply has a 20A 12v rail, and it is enough to power this card.
