EVGA GeForce 7600GS 256-P2-N541-T2 256MB 128-Bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card
  • Owned For: more than 1 year

2 out of 5 eggs Succumbed to capacitor plague 08/12/2008

This review is from: EVGA GeForce 7600GS 256-P2-N541-T2 256MB 128-Bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Speed, stability, programmable GPU, good chipset, drivers, et c.

Cons: See title. I've owned the card for about a year, and the capacitors on the board popped. Game over.

The operating conditions for the card are reasonable: no excessive heat or overclocking--my setup is geared for stability rather than performance.

Other Thoughts: I'm an nVidia man because their driver architecture is terrific; I've had zero problems upgrading cards on my Linux box since the days of my GeForce MX cards. But this, in particular, is terrible.

I suppose I can be thankful that the capacitors failed safely rather than exploding.
