Summary: Works excellently. The only problem is now my rear cooling fan runs like a jet engine on takeoff when the card signals it is working hard. Oh well, newer machines can be told to run the fan slower. No worries with the card.
Summary: Pros: I bought this card in 2007. The card has been very good to me. Many hours of gaming have gone though this guy. I can still play some of the top games with decent graph settings turn up. It's not the best graphic settings, but the games are smooth and still look wonderful.
Summary: I have two P C came with NVIDIA GeForce 8500 GT. They both went out after about a year of service. So I decided to up grade to 8600 GT. The first 8600 GT was made by NVIDIA, the second 8600 GT was made by PNY Technologies.
Summary: I'm running 2 of these SLI. I have had NO problems. It was an upgrade from my EVGA GeForce 9400gt, and I love having the DDR3 speeds. I have had no compatibility problems/errors. Buy at your own risk, but I am very satisfied.
Summary: The mediocre video card which came with my HP Pavilion m8120n gave my Vista PC a Windows Experience Index graphics score of only 3.3 (out of a possible 5.9). Installing the PNY GeForce 8600GT video card was relatively easy.
Summary: I buy this graphic card 1 year ago, the instalation is very simple, the performance is great (sometimes). but this card comes with a few problems, it crashes my pc, the screen shows an error message about a graphic problem. so when this happend i have to rebot my computer.
Summary: Installed the product ok. It came with a PNY sticker on the fan. well the sticker was off center and after a few hours of use the fan would start making funny noises and eventually the computer shut down.
