EVGA 8 GeForce 8400 GS DirectX 10 512-P3-1300-LR 512MB 32-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: does not break the bank, low power requirements, small size

Cons: fan is loud with no active control

Other Thoughts: Works with Widows 8 but must find latest driver from EVGA. Could not bear the fan noise so I soldered in a 150 ohm resister to slow it down. Never gets above 55 degrees C. Don't know why EVGA thought they needed such a whiner fan. Voided warranty but card is tolerable,

ZOTAC GeForce GT 430 (Fermi) DirectX 11 ZT-40605-10L 512MB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Comes with overclocking utility along with some other software some may find useful. Found that it works for crunching SETI work units on older machines. Passive heat sink works OK if you don't overclock it. Might give an older desktop with no AGP or PCIe slots a couple more years of life. Overclocks well

Cons: It's PCI. On the expensive side to upgrade such old tech if you plan to game with it.

Other Thoughts: core clock at 828
Mem 751
Shader (tied to core) 1656
Must use a good fan.

1 out of 5 eggs My Luck 08/01/2011

This review is from: MSI 760GM-P33 AM3 AMD 760G Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Lots of overclock options

Cons: Would not post with recommended rip jaw ram

Other Thoughts: Ordered this due to good reviews for a budget build. It refused to post with both sticks of ram installed. Tried everything, under clocking, relaxed timings, voltage, etc. No Luck. RMA'd board but same thing. May have been a problem with the ram but unlikely and could not wait. Build was taking a lot longer than expected. Not likely to try a MSI build again.
