Summary: The GeForce 8500GT 512MB is a good little graphics card. If you can get one for under 50 bucks for a low to mid range system and don't plan on playing the latest 3D intensive games, then it is a good choice. I recently put one in my son's home-built system and it runs everything really well. Great clarity, very responsive, quiet. It doesn't have problems running video and games for hours on end though it can get a bit warm if you don't have a well ventilated case.
Summary: Decent card for light gaming and everyday work. easily overclockable. If you are tight for money, you could do a lot worse than this card. The only thin I didn't care for was, no external pci power hookup. All power for card is drawn from the pci slot.
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. It's the cheapest model of the 8000 series, so no biggie. It's also obsolete now. If I had known that, I would have replaced it with a newer model for less. Ah well, live and learn.
Summary: Reputable name brand, excellent service and support months after the sale. I had a PNY video card fail and they shipped me a new one under warranty. I had a very positive experience with the PNY product and would buy again. After receiving my replacement I thought the least I could do is write a good review for this company.
Great replacement to integrated graphics for the price!

Summary: My desktop was getting on in years, and so rather than purchase a new one I decided to make some low-cost upgrades. Among them, I upgraded the RAM from 512MB to 2.5GB (thank you Crucial!) for around $[...] and when I spotted this on clearance at the local Staples for $[...] I figured it couldn't hurt.
Summary: This card worked well for quite a while, but eventually, the fan failed which caused the board to overheat and die. I keep my computer VERY clean, so dirt should not have been the culprit. I clean it regularly with compressed air. I replaced it with a fanless ATI HD4350 and have not looked back. My new card works much better, and was cheaper.
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 graphics are great!. And check to have a PCI-e slot on your motherboard!
