Summary: and the company who made it (XFX) is even worse. Blew out 2 capacitors 6 months after installing. Called the manufacture (xFX) who couldn't even apologize. Refused to warranty the product because I could not prove the exact date I purchased it. Avoid this company and product like the plague.
Summary: Just to let everyone know XFX uses bad capacitors, and their lifetime warranty is actually 1 year. Bad parts, bad service #fail. The capacitors are "Sacon FZ" capacitors that typically fail within a year; unfortunately mine failed after the 1 year XFX warranty.
Summary: Card obviously was used, tried in 2 different computers and did not work at all. Seemed hard to install at first, then realized it wasnt me it was the card itself. Took all day to figure out the card was bad, sent back for a refund, hope the refund reaches me
Summary: This is a very nice graphics card, its not new or top of the line but, it isn't that old and definatley above average performance. Too boot it has brand name quality behind it @ a price that is definatley right !
Summary: This is a great video card for the money. I put it in a Dell 540 with an Intel Core 2 Quad processor. I'm running dual Acer 22" monitors. Sweeeeeet. Crisp. Clear. And the fan is super quiet. I'm NOT a gamer, so this card is way more than I need. But for the price, why not? Buy one. You'll love it.
Summary: I bought this to upgrade from a EVGA 7300GT 512MB, and the difference is huge. I am very happy with the perfomance of the XFX 8600GT. The only thing that I don't like is that I can't configure the sound sent to my LCD screen, I use a DVI to HDMI cable converter and the video card sends HDMI signal...
