4 out of 5 eggsVery Pleased

Pros: Card runs very well can run America's Army And BF2 on Max settings i got 165 FPS on America's Army running the latest omegadrivers and 50-75 fps on BF2.. ive sucessfully overclocked this card to 551/951 seeing only the smallest increase in heat

Cons: runs a bit hot 65C idle 83C to 551/1003 when OC'd.. stock it runs about 55C idle and 65-70C under load also my card did not come with painkiller and i didn't really want it anyway

Other Thoughts: i might look into an aftermarket cooler like the Zalaman VF700-CU for better overclocking ability's

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Great card to buy when money is a factor and you dont have PCI-E. It overclocks extremely well (mines at 590/1200 on water; still ran 550/1050 when it was on air)
3626 in 3DMark05 (at first OC)
9459 in 3DMark03 (still trying to hit 10k)

Cons: Not a huge performer, for the price it is amazing but... it's no match for a 6800 Ultra or any 7800

Other Thoughts: In my opinion, the 6600gt is THE BEST performer FOR THE PRICE.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card for the price

Pros: Can play current title smoothly, even in my somewhat low end system. Works on my VIA KM266pro motherboard. My CPU is the bottleneck now.

Cons: 128mb is a little on the short side but 256mb is too pricy to justify. X800GTO with 256mb is a better choice, but hard to find a cheap AGP.

Other Thoughts: I bought one only to play FEAR and QUAKE 4. It does that part pretty well, although I still cannot enable all eye candy and other things, but I didn't expect that from the beginning. One more thing, no full game for me. It's matter of chance, it seems.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat card

Comments: I upgraded from a Geforce 4600 Ti to this card and it made a world of difference. This card is blazing fast. With settings set to max, World of Warcraft runs smoothly and has never looked better. This is a great card.

4 out of 5 eggsBest Card for the Money

Comments: I've had this card for almost a year now and haven't had a single issue. I've overclocked it to 550 core and 1100 memory and again, no problem. I did get a full verson of Painkiller.

This would have gotten a 5 if it supported 2.0 GL, but thats just being picky. I've never gone wrong with Chaintech and this card is another validaton.

4 out of 5 eggsGood card for the $

Comments: This card will work good for todays games, BF2, FEAR. For nex years games, you may want a 7800 with 256 memory to handle the massive online gameplay. If you are on a budget and every little visual detail is not important, this will work good for you. With BF2 single player you can crank the graphics up almost to high. Once online, everything needs to be set to medium, which still looks good.

4 out of 5 eggsExcellent Deal

Comments: Bought this as part of an upgrade, if you need this thing for anything 'beefy' (BF2, WoW, FEAR), be sure to buy a decent VGA heatsink and Artic Silver (I went with the Vantec Iceberq, available from NewEgg) as the aluminum HSF on this is garbage. Aside from that, the card performs excellent, punching 3250 in 3DMark05 before I OC'd it. My only real gripe aside from a cruddy HSF is the included, which according to NewEgg's pictures are PainKiller and a Game Bundle but all that came with mine was the Game Bundle... and it's just 5 really old demos.
