EVGA 8 GeForce 8400 GS DirectX 10 01G-P3-1302-LR 1GB 64-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready Low Profile Ready Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: less than 1 day

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Drivers would not install from CD.
Got an NVIDIA error message "Access Denied".
Had to go to NVIDIA website which finally worked.
I bought this card to output HDMI w/audio to my TV.
Never did get HDMI sound to work.
Whenever I plugged the HDMI cable into the card my computer screen would go blank??? After several hours I just finally gave up.

Pros: Board is a fine product but see the heat caution. No problems with using factory CD drivers. No problems with the install.

Cons: During the Windows install process (minimum graphics demand) this board got so hot that I couldn't hold my finger on the heatsink! I had to rig up an internal fan to blow on board to keep it cool. Part of the problem in that in a vertically oriented tower the heat sink points down which serves to hold in the heat. Better choice is to buy the fan cooled version of this board.

GIGABYTE GA-P35-DS3L LGA 775 Intel P35 ATX All Solid Capacitor Intel Motherboard

  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: I've built many computers and this is the first with no problems. I used the factory CD drivers and everything worked fine. Great Mboard

Cons: Nothing major. [1] Only 1 IDE port [2] Only one on-board music input. [3] The back edge of the board is not fully supported by mounting screws; need to support board with fingers when pushing in cables.
