Excellent video card if you want to boost your graphics from medium to ultra/good for cheap
17 November 2011
Summary: I had been in the market for a new graphics card but it was tough for me to find a decent one with only a PCIe 1.0 single slot. I was sick of running my graphics at low or medium setting on games like sc2 and WOW so I figured I'd try this one with all the great reviews. Got it today, popped it in no problem and am now playing SC2 and WOW on ultra settings. My cpu is decent but my last graphics card, a geforce 210, sucked. Couldn't be happier.
Summary: Picked this up for $30 to put in s new system for my son, setup is msi mobo h61, i3 2100, and a 500gb hdd at 7200 running on windows 8 developer. After reading up on the card on Toms Hardware I thought $30 for a 700+ 3d benchmark isnt too bad at all, but happily to me and my sons surprise the posted benchmark is for the ddr2 or ddr3 earlier versions, this card benchmarked at stock speeds in around 1060-1070, overclocked it is easily stable upto 630-640mhz and benches in...
The best video graphic card for a 300 W power supply!!

Summary: I've had this video card in my computer now for over a month, and I must say I'm very impressed.On graphics, my Window Experience Indexed when from 3.4 up to 6.8! Playing Starcraft 2, on medium settings, my frames per seconds went up from 40 FPS up to 111 frames per second!!. At the highest settings, frames Per second can range from 60-45 FPS. Also,the fan runs very quiet.
Summary: I bought this card because it has an HDMI port on-board with an onboard sound codec as well. This means that you don't have to run wires from your soundcard to the video card like with other geforce boards. It works great. The onboard processor isn't that fast, but I'd say it's comparable to a mid-level 9000-series geforce card. Also, I bought a Geforce GT220 to go in a different computer (DELL 518 with Windows 7 64-bit) and there's some glitch so it doesn't work.
Summary: Just replaced my 9600GS card and very happy with replacement. This card runs no hotter than 58C on my machine compared to the 9600 which ran as hot as 78C. Windows 7 experience score better too (6.8 vs 6.6). Finally this card is quiet unlike the last card and you can't heard the fan running at all.
Summary: You shouldn't go into purchasing this card with visions of grandeur, but as long as you're ok with reducing some settings on current games (circa 2010), you'll be pleased. I purchased this card at a local electronics chain for $25 more than Amazon has it for, but I needed a card right away because my EVGA Geforce 8800 GTS died on me this morning (08/20/10). I went to the store not knowing what they would have in stock.
Summary: I got this card for [...] and it blows through Mass Effect 2 on maximum resolution (on a 22in screen, though with the special shadow effects and such turned off, haven't tried turning them on yet). It's a huge huge improvement over my poor decrepit 8400.
Summary: I upgraded my video card because I was tired of running at minium settings on Starcraft 2. My Score on Windows (Windows 7, Home Premium, 64 bit) was 3.7 with my old 512MB video Card. After installing this new card, updating the driver from the Nvida website, my score went to 7.0 The graphics are crisp, and beautiful Also a side note, on World of Warcraft, at BARE MINIUM settings I used to get around 17 FPS in Dal.
