re: specs 7/28/2009 8:41:12 PM

Pros: Had ASUS read me the specs over the phone. They said it was 512Mb of 192 bit DDR3 memory. I asked them stream processors, they said 96. What more confirmation do you need? Best gso here.

Cons: Best for 1280x1024 or 1440x900 or less.

Great Card 7/24/2009 9:45:40 PM

Pros: Great Card!!! ASUS did a great job on this card and the cooler is not cheaply made according to other comments made. Came with a copy of COD World at War for FREEEEEEE!!!!!!

Cons: none

Overall Review: I have purchased 6 of these cards this year for low budget gaming PC's. All have worked great and play video games great as long as they are set moderately on the graphic settings in high intense games. COD4 / COD World at War / WOW / Steam games all play smooth. Buy it and take advantage. If you want an SLI rig and your on a budget get 2!

Great Card 7/22/2009 8:12:07 PM

Pros: I believe this is one of nVidia's/ASUS's most well-made cards. I bought this originally a while back as the sole gfx card in my machine, and it has performed great. I just recently bought a second one for SLI, and my framerates are generally 220+ in CSS and 180+ in DoDS with all settings MAXED and EXTRA OPTIONS (SLI 32xQ) enabled via nVidia's ForceWare drivers at 1920x1080. Oblivion looks better than it ever has, plus using ForceWare I've made Spore look fantastic... For newer games like Fallout 3, the card will do nearly anything you ask of it.

Cons: It generates heat. All cards do, but having to SLI these right next to each other, the fans that are on the cards and the ones on my case haven't been able to keep them cool, so I took the side off of my case and put a real fan there. Like, the one that actually cools the house. Works great now!

Overall Review: I would have taken an egg off for the heat issue, however this card is awesome. I believe the 9600 GSO is better than the 9800's from nVidia (which for some reason have had a lot of technical issues, and seem to get the same, if not WORSE framerates) -- In my opinion: Best in the 9 Series.

Overheater 7/15/2009 3:40:37 PM

Pros: I don't really have anything to go here. See below.

Cons: Within 6 hours the card has started overheating and shutting off. Seems like they went the cheap route with fans on this model. Now I have to send it back or buy an aftermarket fan.

OK card, for the price. 7/8/2009 1:59:35 AM

Pros: Good price, especially after rebate. Decent performance at lower resolutions.

Cons: One of the cards died 30 minutes after I got it.

Overall Review: I didn't have much cash but my ancient X1950 was getting too slow for comfort, so I decided to spring for this. The first card showed up and performed alright, so when I noticed that I could get World at War for free if I ordered a second one to put in SLI I went for it. Card two showed up with a wobbly fan that I immediately questioned but installed anyhow. Sure enough, after only ten minutes of playing WaW artifacts began to show all over the screen and I smelled burning video card. The fan had died and taken the card with it, but the replacement chip came quickly and works fine. Overall the performance is pretty good on these cards, though I would suggest something a bit more powerful if you intend to play at resolutions over 1280x1024/1400x900. Newegg was great as always, but in the future I will stay away from Asus and stick with a more reputable brand.

Pretty good 7/4/2009 3:44:20 PM

Pros: Plays Fall out 3 on all high and oblivion and call of duty WaW on all high too. Great card for the price! No problems with the fan at all!

Cons: Wish I had spend the extra cash on a little better card because this will just be obsolete in a year or 2 and i'll have to upgrade again. It is big.

Overall Review: Works great. I recomend to someone who isnt looking to play new games but this card will even chew threw crysis on almost all high settings.

Not a good value 6/25/2009 9:36:49 AM

Pros: Seemed cheap, it accelerates Photoshop. Works well on OSX86 (10.5.7) - causes a mouse lag problem but that's easy to fix.

Cons: The fan went out after less than 12 hours. Possibly never worked. I could either ship the entire unit back to Newegg or buy an aftermarket fan. Went the aftermarket route, and now it works. At least I can return the fan locally if anything happens to it.

I would rather have spent that $25 on a better card. For ~$95 you can get a 9800GT. Would not buy again.

Overall Review: The rebate is a hassle - it's a Visa card and they want to charge you $3 to get it back in a standard timeframe. Should have read the other reviews - do not buy this video card.
