4 out of 5 eggsMakes a decent budget card

Pros: Plays World of Warcraft at highest settings with no noticeable lag unless I'm in windowed mode on a dual monitor set up. Even then, it's not very much.

Cons: Sometimes textures flicker on and off of the screen. Does this in WoW and Sims 2.

Other Thoughts: I have it paired up with the Abit AW8D mobo, and it works well enough to make me happy with it. But it's still not as good as the combination I put together for a friend (Asus A9600PRO/TD/128 video card and Asus P5P800 mobo.)

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast Card

Cons: Will NOT fit in a standard ATX board. It requires 2 slots as it is a double wide card. However the heat sink on the video card is so big it will not fit into an atx board as the video card heat sinks bumps into the motherboard heat sink and it will not go it.

5 out of 5 eggsshuuuuuuush

Pros: I have been a retail system builder for quite some time now, and one of the biggest challenges you have is meeting price points. This card allows me to have a middle of the road option for my "quiet" line of gaming pc's. The card will deliver quality performance with todays games, and many that will launch in the future. It handles world of warcraft as well as other systems running a 7800GT Thats great, because the 7800GT is a much bigger hit to the wallet. In my setup (wich has maximum air flow with minimal noise from fans) this card runs 105f and 115f under load.

Cons: if you are using a micro atx motherboard, dont use this card. you will not have pci slots. also this is not the best card at all for cramped form factor enviornments.

Other Thoughts: wonderful price, wonderful performance, good job gigabyte.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat video card

Pros: It's been a great video card so far. Been running it for over a month now. I've had no problems with it running hot. I was scared it would because of the lack of a fan. It usually runs around 102 degrees at idle and 113 under load.

[WARNING] be very carefull when updating the bios. It comes with a utility for updating the bios, which i used. It gives you two options, update from file or internet. I chose file the first time because i had downloaded a new bios from Gigabytes website.

Good thing it allows you to save a copy of the original bios, which saved my backside because the flash went all wrong. The pc would boot but i had no video.

I sent NewEgg an e-mail describing my problem. They told me to contact Gigbyte for technical support and provided a number for me to call. That was nice i did expect a little more help than that.

I then contacted Gigabyte with that phone number and was told that i should have turned off VPU Recover in the Catylist Control Center.

Cons: That would have been nice to know beforehand, like in a readme file or something!!! I was told to RMA it back to NewEgg. A freind of mine helped me reflash the bios with the original i had saved, using an old PCI card.

Other Thoughts: After this ordeal, i also tried updating the bios with the live internet update function of the utility but everytime, it comes up "cant connect to server".

I'm just going to use it as-is. It runs pretty good but i dont care for the Control Center and i didnt see the big improvement, graphicly over nvidia that a lot of people talk about. Next purchase of vid card? Back to nvidia!

4 out of 5 eggsGood deal

Pros: Did a bunch of research for a graphics card that'd get me by without the requirements of extreme gaming but would handle some HDTV. Haven't tried that out yet though.

Cons: right now the screen flickers when booting up in windows, suspect driver issue probably or something else. Also this thing may be silent, but it certainly isn't cool. My thermal probe is showing it starts out at 40'c and goes up from there. This doesn't allow for a nice cool case temp for one's watercooler.

4 out of 5 eggsServes it's purpose

Pros: Great price and uses all the newest graphic standards for next generation apps. I don't really use this for games, so I actually underclock this significantly when I don't need the acceleration to make my comp run very cool.

Cons: I am so far unable to monitor the temperature of this card. I have tried a variety of tools such as ati tool, etc, but have been unsuccessful. The card is hot to the touch in my silent pc (very minimal fans), so I would love to know what temp it is running at.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully they will include temp monitoring in the next bios update.

4 out of 5 eggsSolid, but hard to install

Pros: Very nice graphics card with all the bells and whistles. Includes a lot of additional things for inputs and has a video tuner on the card. The card's cooling systems keeps the card and the interior of the case temperature down. Not to mention it is totally silent. (totally)

Cons: The heat pipes are really large and can be difficult to fit with large heat sinks on your chipsets. The card takes up two slots, but that isn't much of an issue. The mail issue is getting the card in without damaging the motherboard or bending the heatsink's fins. Basically make sure you have 3/4 of an inch on the backside of the card to clear any other heat sinks on the motherboard. The bottom side takes up an additional slot in the case so that isn't much of an issue. I had to spend about 30 minutes getting the card installed into a Intel D975XBX motherboard, but it's been worth the hassel.

Other Thoughts: Even though the card is large and may take a while to get it to fin in the PCIE 16x slot, it's well worth the time. The card is a great card for the money and I've been very (very very) happy with it so far.

4 out of 5 eggsVery Quiet Video Card

Pros: Silent solution, great chip from ATI, etc.

Cons: I would like to have ddr3 memory, but isn't too much of a problem IMO.

Other Thoughts: I ended up RMA'ing this, because the display was doing funny things, even after I installed new drivers. It did play Ghost Recon Advanced War pretty well, after I put in 2 gigs of DDR ram in. With 1 gig, it was kind of choppy. (no PhysX card installed, either) Other games are probably fine though.

2 out of 5 eggsDoesn't fit Dell 5100

Pros: Nice box.

Cons: Doesn't fit the Dell 5100 and similar cases, because it requires a slot above the PCIe slot, and there isn't one.

Mounting this card requires a lot of room; one open slot above, and one below.
