  • Summary: At the time I purchased this, there were two other cards based on a slightly earlier chipset that were just as well reviewed and cost half as much as this one. It was a tough decision.
  • Pros: The Windows 7 upgrade advisor found no issues with my computer, but after I installed W7 I found that there were no drivers for my GeForce FX 5500 based video card, and it barely worked. After installing this card as a replacement there was a huge improvement. Though I was not able to use all the...
  • Cons: None, except that this card can't make up for the rest of my system being eight years old!

Turns a server into somewhat of a gaming computer. :)

William N., Newegg

  • Summary: Thanks Janton!! You all are awesome! Keep up the good work. I will be on the lookout for a 9800gt in pci form if one can be made?!
  • Pros: Let's see. What I like about this video card? This thing is sweet! I have a 4gb network connection, a 13gb ramdisk and this video card offers the perfect solution to my current setup. I am happy, now that I can at least run my favorite game -Rift.., which I attest is very demanding graphically. R...
  • Cons: Rather steep price, but well worth it.

Best PCI card available

Nathan T., Newegg
22 January 2011
  • Summary: Breathed new life into an old dell. Runs World of Warcraft at respectable medium settings, even with an old single core processor. Great option for getting higher resolutions on older systems. If you have any option for PCI-E or even AGP, then get that instead.
  • Pros: Does everything I expected it to. Heatsink is solid copper. Dual monitor support is a plus. Allows me to stream high definition movies. DirectX 10. Works perfectly with Win 7 32bit.
  • Cons: PCI has its limits. Not the cards fault. Included drivers are always out of date by the time you get them, get your Geforce drivers from Nvidia's website and nowhere else!!

Its all up to your CPU & BUS speed.

Joao S., Newegg
31 December 2010
  • Summary: After using this card for a while, I realized that although it runs great, but the computer still couldn't play Blu-Ray videos. Neither the CPU nor the PCI BUS were fast enough. I ended-up upgrading to a more powerful computer.
  • Pros: Still working fine
  • Cons: Video card more than maxes the speed of the PCI BUS it is attached to.
