Summary: replaced my old 6600 (garbage) that my comp came with. i went from being unable to bioshock to being able to play it on full settings - which is good since that was the sole reason why i upgraded at the time.
Pros: great deal for the money
Cons: as with all graphics cards, by the time they're cheap, they're outdated
Summary: Great card for anyone running any game pre 2007. or maybe that came out in 2007.
Pros: Runs most games well. Crysis -> Medium @ 1680x1050 30-40 fps dx9 Age of Conan -> Medium@ 1680x1050, shader 3.0 about 30fps down to 10, with 2.0 i can get 30-60 fps outdoors with shadows off and max view distance. COD4 Runs 40fps @1680x1050. Haven't had any issues with this card. Just isn't runnin...
Cons: Limited at 256 mb, would only buy if you really need a gfx card for cheap. Otherwise, I'd suggest buying a 9800gtx for only hundred or so bucks.
Pros: Good dependable card. No Crashes. Not a speed demon by today's standards but it gets the job done.
Cons: Don't plan on getting the rebate. I bought this back on 3/19. They said to give 8-10 weeks from the end of the promotion to receive my check. It's been 11 weeks now and still nothing. 8-10 weeks is kind of long as it is. So I wouldn't plan on getting your $20 back. My rebate status on the website...
Summary: I custom built my computer. eVGA 680i, intel e6750 @ 3.4ghz (stock 2.66ghz), 2.5gb ocz sli pc6400 (really 4gb). The red circuit board used makes others think you have ATI card's in your system. UPGRADE the coolers!
Pros: I have owned this video card for over 4 months and have had no problems with it what so ever. I have installed a Zalman ZF-900 heatsink and memory heatsinks and have two of these running SLI'd. I have this overclocked using "ATI Tool" at 680/900 and am running flawlessly. The temperatures never g...
Cons: They are not 8800's or 9600's. The card doesn't have standard size 3-pin fan connectors, they have the smaller ones that only the Stock cooler uses.
Summary: This isn't an 8800GT, but for half the price you get excellent gameplay. Card does a great job running FEAR on my 22" LCD. Price to performance, this is the card to buy for a mid-range system.
Pros: Runs games, perfect for a mid-range gamer. I like the included MSI Dual Core Center, makes it easy to overclock.
Summary: With the rebate, this card is a steal! Get it while it's cheap and has a free game included!
Pros: Considering I went from an ATI Radeon x300SE video card to this, the performance increase is amazing! I guess by most standard this card will be considered mid range, but it's handled most games I've thrown at it incredibly well! Install was a breeze and I've never noticed any problems with my st...
Cons: None that I've noticed. I haven't tried more graphic intense games like Crysis with this card, but I'd imagine it could perform well enough on medium and lower settings.
