MSI GeForce 8600 GTS DirectX 10 NX8600GTS-T2D256E-OC 256MB 128-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: This isn't a large card,so it fits in a smaller case well.
GpuZ reports Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec) at 33.5 GB/sec.
It performs very well.

Cons: My only complaint is the fan noise.
GPuZ reports the fan running at 30%,but yet it sounds like a blow dryer even at idle.
MSI or someone needs to develop some software to slow this thing down when it's just idling.
You can find these cards cheap on auction sites and they are more than worth the $20-$30 you would pay.

Other Thoughts: It runs cool and does everything I bought it for with power to spare,I just wish I could slow the fan down.

XFX CORE Edition Radeon HD 7770 DirectX 11 FX-777A-ZNF4 1GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Works fantastic in a 5 year old Gateway desktop.
I'm a "retired" gamer,but even going on graphic intensive websites were taxing my ATI FirePro 3750 video card.

All my Blu Ray and embedded website videos play much smoother with this card.

Cons: It's big and long,so take notice of any south bridge heatsinks near the rear of the PCIe slot(s).

Also,the fan isn't loud when idle,but it is audible under load.

Other Thoughts: I installed this video card into an older Gateway GT5644E desktop tower.

•One PCI Express ×16 slot
Upgraded the power supply to:

The card is backwards compatible to PCIe x16 slots

Rosewill Green Series RG430-2 430W Continuous @40°C, 80 PLUS Certified, ATX12V v2.3 & EPS12V v2.91,Active PFC
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Quiet fan
Low cost
Great output

Cons: I replaced my older Rosewill RE501-SLV power supply
with this power supply.
My PC shutdown fine with my older ps,then after installing this newer model Rosewill, it reboots after performing Windows shutdown.

Other Thoughts: Installed on a Gigabyte GA-8I865GME-775 motherboard
P4 D915 CPU
1GB PC3200
Chaintech MX440-8X video card
