ZOTAC ZT-60201-10L GeForce GT 640 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: I can play Farcry 2 full screen with highest settings (I haven't tried any newer games yet). Audio thru the HDMI worked instantly. Fit great in my HTPC and added very little noise. Great deal for less than $50 (including discount and rebate).

Cons: The card uses HDMI-mini output, which is not the same as what my smartphone uses, so I had to buy yet another HDMI cable. The HDMI-mini output is too close to the edge of the slot. I had to "bend" the card a little, otherwise I couldn't fully insert the plug.

Other Thoughts: I had the video card up and running for a few minutes then all of a sudden the picture went out. It turns out that I simply needed to push the HDMI-mini plug in further, but in order to do that I had to re-seat the card and "bend" it to the side before I tightened the slot screw.

EVGA 01G-P3-N959-TR GeForce 9500 GT 1GB 128-Bit DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Decent performance for the price, S-Video out, moderate power consumption and size.

Cons: Artifacts and wavy lines appear across the displays (even during BIOS splash screen before drivers are loaded). S-Video out never seemed to fully work. Nvidia Control Panel locks up when detecting TV.

Other Thoughts: I contacted EVGA support. They thought it was either my PSU, PCI-e slot, or the video card itself. I swapped out the video card with a friend's 8800 GT (which is more power hungry than the 9500) and it worked just fine (including the s-video out). I would have exchanged it, as I'm sure I just got a lemon, but then the rebate submission period would have expired before I got the replacement. it's actually cheaper to just pay the re-stocking fee and re-purchase the item than to void the rebate.
