Pros: Plugged card in, booted, installed drivers from Nvidia and done. Nvidia overclocking recommendations for 3D were 608/1118 and this only brings the CPU to around 44C. The lower power mode and quiet fan make this card a good choice for someone who is not interested in the latest games.
Cons: None so far. I had a noob moment by not downloading the drivers before installing the card.
Other Thoughts: Rebate is being processed, included game was playable through WINE.
WebGL demos work fine with it - the reason I bought the card - my IGP choked on every WebGL demo or tutorial I tried.
The NVIDIA X Server Settings panel sliders for overclocking are a little jumpy when trying to set it to a specific digit - but that is not XFX's fault.
Pros: Bonded channel on downloads, speeds increased without me having to buy a higher level of service.
Has been on for over a month straight now.
Other Thoughts: Comcast upped their monthly modem rental fee to the point where I wanted to do something about it. This unit just needs to last 12 months and it will have paid back the investment and however long it lasts is all gravy after that.
Works great with my DD-WRT Wireless Router.
Pros: Ran Memtest86+ overnight and managed 3 complete passes on the 8GB of this RAM I now own. Works great. Solidly constructed with securely fastened heat spreaders.
Other Thoughts: With the rebate, this takes a good deal and makes it brilliant!READ FULL REVIEW
