Summary: Still a good choice for a modest gaming machine based on price per performance less than $50. GPU speed is adequate however 512 MB DDR3 ram is bare minimum and may limit high graphic settings on certain games. For upper end gaming machines I would recommend at least 1 GB video ram.
Summary: Great performance, noisy fan. Offers great performance on its own or when paired with a twin in SLI mode. For those of you considering SLI in the future, don't waste your money. I only did it because I got a second card on the cheap and curiosity overwhelmed me.
Summary: Pros: It runs smoothly; I can play many games with this card, watch Blu-Ray movies, and edit images in Photoshop. Cons: It is very bulky. It covered 2 SATA ports, and 1 PCI port on my motherboard.
Summary: Running on full specs Call of Duty World at War...no problem. Details are amazing. You can get it for around 60-80 $ on E-bay...well worth the money! I had 8600 GTS 512 and it was barely running on min with the same resolution which is 1920x1080
Summary: This is a very stable video card with very good performance. The only thing you need to mindful of is you cannot mix the older 2 power connecter versions with the newer 1 power connector version as the SLI connectors do not line up. Otherwise you can mix the cards with no issues just no SLI.
Summary: It was my first buy of a graphics card in about a decade, so I not an expert in gpu. I'm not really owning this card right, I exchanged it to a friend by an ATI X1950XTX, for the following reasons: 1) The card is so big that it barely fit on my Apevia X-Qpack2 case, also the power connectors where...
Summary: I purchased this card to upgrade the lame video card that came standard on my computer, and am very happy. I always used ATI video hardware in the past but became disappointed with the quality and driver availability. My experience with this Nvidia card is awesome.
Summary: Well it is way too LOUD.. You have to blast your stereo or headphones to lessen the noise that this cards fan makes. I have a cooler master cosmos case, which is very quiet and insulated against noise.
