MSI GeForce 8600 GTS DirectX 10 NX8600GTS Diamond Plus 256MB 128-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • 256MB 128-Bit GDDR3
  • Core Clock 675 MHz
  • 1 x DVI 1 x HDMI
  • 32 CUDA Cores
  • PCI Express x16

Pros:

Good marks on 3d Mark. Good scalability. Great value for the money. Runs most games very smoothly (depending on your RAM). No trouble installing/ setting the drivers. All in all, this is a great value. it's not the top card, but, it's very nice and for 100 bucks you cannot beat it.

Cons:

it is LOUD. The fan runs at one speed "VERY FAST" which just happens to mirror "very loud". I got this for my wife's machine, and it's inside her desk (well insulated) so it really doesn't have much of an impact apart from the HEAT that blows from behind her desk. Otherwise, no cons.

Other Thoughts:

For the price, this is almost too good to be true. If you're looking for a card for a 2ndary box, your kids or your wife (who doesn't play a lot) this is ideal. It's not a bad choice for the primary box if you're in a pinch. it'll do whatever you need it to.
