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: They have a good card but their warranty is nin-existance. I have purchase a card last year, few month back went dead I have tried to contact retailer, no longer in business, normal, then contacted XFX the following is the results: [ 10/18/2011 10:54:39 PM] dead [JEDY 10/19/2011 10:03:31 AM] Hi,...
Excellent value for durable and SLI ready graphics cards

Summary: I bought this card because the card that came with my Dell Dimesion E520 2.8 GHZ dual core machine couldn't handle adobe Photoshop (full version). An error kept coming up " need more memory or better graphics card" This card did the trick.
Summary: This card is made with subpar components, the fan is very noisy + sneaky warranty tactics are used by the manufacturer! I had the card for alittle over two years when some of the capacitors blew. Come to find out the capacitors are well known for their poor quality.
Good card. A little underpowered for current games

Summary: I've had two of these cards SLI'd for about 3 years. Although they held up for a bit, they are currently underpowered for today's games. SLI support has gotten better over time but still has some hiccups from time to time.
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: Nice card, Plays many games well, Majority of them on Medium to high settings.the XXX series offers DDR3,Cuda,Some of the Fastest factory settings in it's class. Nice warranty too. basically biggest bang for the buck including less wattage consumption.
Summary: Owned the card for two years, no games. As soon as I started gaming like a month ago 3 capacitors blew up. It was pretty nice while it worked. I hear you can replace them and they are very cheap. But as of today you would be better off buying a 9600 gt but beware of XFX using those cheap capacitors.
Summary: I had my XFX 8600 for almost exactly a year and a half. Nowhere included in the box or on the box was any notice of warranty, nor was there any notice on or in the box that one must registered on-line in order to extend the warranty beyond the original warranty period of 1-year.
