EVGA 256-P2-N749-LR GeForce 8500GT 256MB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card

Pros: This card does as advertised and I love the performance boost, full DirectX10 compatibility in a 128bit card. It gives a 5.9 Aero / 5.0 Gaming Vista Experience Index rating. I get especially good frame rates, 50+fps in WoW. HALO2 and Half-Life2 both perform well on this card.

Cons: The core clock is a bit weak, and the memory is limited to 256MB, but this is a value card. Biggest problem is that the card runs very hot, 140F under full load, read from case temp monitor probe with no fan. I changed AI Quiet Mode to Performance Mode and installed an additional case fan. Much cooler now, 89F normal, 122F under heavy load.

Other Thoughts: Great card for the value if your case supports it.
