3 out of 5 eggs so-so, but bad generation of nvidia 09/07/2012

This review is from: EVGA 256-P2-N751-TR GeForce 8600 GT 256MB 128-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card

Pros:

decent value for the money back in the day. played all the games it needed to, but not that great looking graphics with games like Company of Heroes, etc. but with settings turned down it was fine.

Cons:

card has intermittent issues since about 2.5-3 years after purchase. I personally had an 8800GT go bad on me and there are tons of similar chip video cards in desktop and laptops of this generation that just overheated and broke solder connections, so basically poor design due to an overload of power and not small enough transistors in its time.

Other Thoughts:

I would expect much longer lifespan out of an $80 graphics card, no matter what the current technology spectrum looks like.
