EVGA 256-P2-N749-LR GeForce 8500GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Good card for the price. Lots of features.

Cons: I don't know why they thought it would work without a fan. We bought it for a server machine thinking fanless operation would make it more reliable. WRONG! The card gets so hot that it locks up the machine after a few hours. This is in a server box with plenty of case ventilation. If you get this one, plan on making sure a fan draws in air from outside the case and blows it directly on the card.
