Pros: It was cheap, worked really well.
Cons: I was trying to cool down my Video cards temp by placing 3 fans in my pc. One right on the side next to the video card, one on the exaust vents and one in the on the PSU to get heat out. But appearently just the 1 fan next to the video card on the side would have worked just as good.
Overall Review: Video Card: EVGA GeForce 8600GT 1GB
Temp Before: 55c
Temp After: 54c
At least I got some cool looking lights on my pc.
Pros: It was cheap and got here fast.
Cons: It raise the CPUs temps by 0 degrees C! Not impressive at all the coolant I had on there before was much better!
Overall Review: Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8GHz
Pros: Awsome card for a really good price! This card is an excellent card for the price and graphics it can handle. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good cheap card.
Cons: Only con I found was it was a little tricky getting the old PCI-E card out, just because I didn't know you had to pull the tumbtab away from the card then pull the card up. Other than that no cons except the fact that I couldn't get the 8800GT instead because of my price range and power limitations.
Overall Review: I found that it was nice to have the 1GB of RAM that came on the card. It does help other programs run. If you a gamer, I mean more gaming then average surfing the web and such, then I would recommend getting a NVIDIA PhysX card in the future it will take a load off your processor and also make game effect like explosions look really really cool!
