Neat little card 5/27/2008 1:06:54 PM

Pros: Cheaply priced, came with 512Megs of Ram, Bought as upgrade for when my 7300GT OC blew some capacitors and I was on a strict budget. Been playing games like Doom3, SWG, and EQ2 maxing it out as far as I could, and it performed beautifully.

I've been an Nvidia fan for years, I needed a cheap card that would do great things, and their 8400 was just what I needed.

Cons: Cant say there are any cons.

Overall Review: I'm keeping with Nvidia. Nothing else comes close.

Pros: dirt cheap for this type of card

Cons: complete and total failure, had to jiggle the monitor wire to get it to make a connection and the s-video port refused to work at all. Obviously the card was defective but if it passes ECS QA in this condition I can only assume others have as well

Overall Review: as stated above card seemed to be built poorly and not inspected.

Love it 4/21/2008 7:36:24 AM

Pros: Fast, cheap, powerful, and mine came with 512mb (gotta love when companies make mistakes and give you better stuff), kept me playing games even after my computer with an 8800 went down.

Cons: Small fan on the heatsink really doesn't help out too much.

Overall Review: Used in a computer that i really only use to surf the Internet and some light gaming, came in handy when my good computer fell apart on me.

8400 4/18/2008 8:46:14 AM

Pros: Bada$$ graphics card.

Cons: The port keeps loosening, you could probably tighten it down with the right tool. In time it will decay.

Overall Review: This is the first time i built my computer from scratch and i put the motherboard in wrong at first, causing me to bend the metal rear panel in this card, but luckily both still work.

Pros: I was happy to finally get a graphics card that was vista compatible. My overall rating went from a 3.0 to a 3.7! This card is solely used for the Sims 2 game and the graphics on it are excellent!

Cons: The heatsink could be a bit thicker to keep it cooler.

Pros: This is a cheap but powerful graphics card. I have Oblivion running smoothly with everything maxed, except AA which is only 4x. 8x made it a little choppy. Overall a VERY good bargain.

Cons: The fan on it is awfully small, I'm worried about how well it will cool. I guess we will see, eh?

Overall Review: I've always had a bad gfx card. This one has blown my mind, I am very happy with it.

Pros: Amazing card for the price, you have a card that will run old games on high and get 75 constant and newer games on med-low getting 40, and its cheap. and you dont have to oc it.... plus it makes no noise, what so ever, i forget my computer is even on sometimes.

Cons: They didnt mistake the order and place a 9800GX2 in the box.

Overall Review: AMD dual core 3500+ 2.2 ghz processor 8400gs 64 bit ddr2 256mb not oced, 512mb ram.

Great card for the price 4/15/2008 11:28:56 AM

Pros: If you're looking for a card to play graphic-intensive games on in this price-range, then good luck finding anything. On the other hand, this card is excellent for just about anything else one might need. Side-by-side with an ATI Geforce RADEON 9800SE, the ECS blows the Radeon out of the water.

Cons: Not for high-end gaming.
