SPARKLE GeForce 9400 GT 1GB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card SFPX94GT1024U2
SPARKLE GeForce 9400 GT 1GB DDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 Video Card SFPX94GT1024U2

Pros: I bought this to replace my ancient ATI PCI card from late nineteen ninety something. Before my pages would jump when I surfed, now they roll like a marble across glass, flawless. Also, I can play newer games, Yeah! I'm not a big gamer but the games I have played, the visual has not only blown me away but they've impressed my 11 year old son, and that's not an easy thing to do sometimes. I bought this on a shell shocker deal for 35 buck and free shipping. Now that I have it, I would have easily payed double, but don't tell newegg that. Although it didn't come with a fan, it ran between 65 and 72 deg C. I then jerry-rigged a fan to blow across it and now my range it 43-50, even on the intense games. If your looking for a really really good graphics card, I would recommend this one, really. Oh yeah, and dual booting with Ubuntu, the sphere never moved so graceful. My 3D desktop looks lilke something from a really good scifi movie.

Cons: i think I would have to put a DUH, about here. I mean, a solid card with great performance. Nope, no cons from this fella.

Overall Review: i ordered on a Friday morning and had it installed Tuesday evening. Great shipping and a great deal. If you are concerned with the heat from the stock product, you can do like I did and string up a $2 case fan with fishing line from the side and your heat will drop 20 deg C easy
