Summary: Haven't actually used this video card in a while and am WAY late on providing a review. It's quite outdated now by "today's" gaming standards but can honestly say when it was my main video card in that older system it performed flawlessly. PNY makes quality video cards.
Summary: I received this order as described. My WorldofTanks experience improved dramatically! I can scout with fast tanks now. No more skipping. I have received more 'top gun' awards than my previous 6 months of play!
Summary: Works well, runs a little hot compared to my old one (an exact replacement) The new fan design doesn't seem to be as efficient, but It's never "bogged down", so I guess it's okay. They don't even pretend that this model has the SLI integration; the "tab" isn't even built onto the board.

Summary: I had a GeForce 6600 and bought Call of Duty 4 The game ran but would freeze after 30+ minutes of play time. The Geforce 6600 was being maxed out buy the call of duty 4 game. I upgraded to The GeForce 8500Gt and the game now runs great no more freezing and the graphics are the best ever.
Summary: If you are looking for a budget video card, this is it. Graphics rocks!. Just take in account the games you are planning to play. The recent ones like Crysis or Far Cry 2 runs on low settings, they demand a lot of graphic power, but for the older ones like Fear, CoH, IL2, BIA, MOHA and others the...
Summary: I just bought a 24" monitor recently, and this card with its DVI connection is truly the item that tops it off. DVD's like I have never seen before. It also has the power for HD or BluRay. It only requires a 300w power source, which my HP has. I just love this setup. I had a nVidia 6150e in my HP.
Summary: I just got this last night and it made a huge difference in my gaming and video editing. I was using a 256mb ATI X700 Pro which in its day (2004-5) was a decent card. But eventually games started to get more advanced and I figured I would upgrade but I didn't want to spend over 100 bucks because I...
Summary: I installed this card in a new HP dual core AMD machine. After 13 months the card crashed and was worthless. After trying everything to revive it I sent a request to PNY for a replacement under their 3 year warranty.
