Summary: Although it may now be somewhat dated; It fit the bill for me fine. I only have a 250watt power supply and I needed something to speed up game graphics. So far I have been able to run all games on high res etc... and still get +60fps.
Summary: Great deal for the performance you get out of it. Packaging was nice and looks exactly like the picture. Would recommend to a friend - but I don't have any of those, ha ha ha. What's good about it: -Quiet -Stays cool -Easy to install What's bad about it: -512MB memory, but again, it's perfect for people with a 300W or similar power supply and need a cheap, powerful GPU. I would give this product a 6/5 if I could.
Summary: I purchased this card for a computer I am rebuilding for a Christmas present. for computers with only a 300w power source this card is one of the best from nvidia. I didn't test any hardcore games before wrapping but, tried Spore at max and it ran beautifully. windows experience scored the card at 6.7, benchmarked at 643 which is fair considering what most computers start at (my integrated graphics got an abysmal 31).
Summary: I bought this card to game on, games such as,, call of duty, minecraft, borderlands, and so on. It performs beautifully, it's a great card, works on a 300 watt power supply with powe to spare, Runs relatively cool especially considering its a fan less card,
Summary: This is a solidly build card for $30. It installed fairly easily. I initially downloaded and installed the latest driver manually. This made the card very slow and jittery. To fix this I install the default driver from the supplied disk, then automatically updated to the latest using Windows 7 driver update. Once finished, everything ran smoothly. Video is very smooth and saturated. I have posted off the rebate forms, etc, and will have to see how this fares.
Summary: I bought this card to replace a dying GeForce 8600GT, and the difference between the two cards is dramatic. Frame rates have more than doubled. HAWX plays smoothly with no jarring or hesitations. Moreover, the temperature of the GPU rarely rises above 120F and usually hovers around 105F. The card is solidly built and well laid out, with the fan placed amid the large heatsink. My choice of card was limited by the power of the PSU -- 300 watts.
Summary: It can play the games I like, usually on the highest settings, and it doesn't get too hot. My previous older fanless card got up to about 95C on load, while this one only goes up to mid 70s on a hot day, while it idles at around 45. While still a bit hot, I am not complaining, as long as it keeps working.
Summary: I agree with virtually everything the first six reviewers posted here from a technical perspective. I love the card. In my case the GT 240 Zone replaced an nVidia Verto 9600GT because the fan was making such an ungodly racket (i.e. NOT for performance reasons.) It bears mentioning however that this card takes up A LOT of space in the case due to the fin array on the passive cooling unit.
