Also It's almost 3X cheaper than the 8800 series cards.

Same under the load, but under the load my other fans get loud so maybe they just drown the fan on this card.

I have Dell Dimension 8400 with single core P4 3.6Ghz/3GB RAM. This card works great in it. The 3DMark score is 4100 if you care (I didn't, I purchased it b/c my old card started giving me problems). When not under the load I can't say I hear any extra noise coming from it. Same under the load, but under the load my other fans get loud so maybe they just drown the fan on this card.

I bought expecting to be able to play games at medium quality. Boy, was I wrong. Let my first let readers know the complete specifications of my sub-$600 gaming/programming/linux rig:

***Motherboard: ABIT Fatal1ty AN9 32X
***Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 4400+ 2.3GHz
***Memory: Corsair XMS 2GB
***Optical drive:Asus LightScribe 18x Drive

People have been trashing this video card all over the net ever since it came out. One particular reviewer said he didn't even know what type of buyer would buy it. Well, here's the answer: those of us on a who aren't much into spending over $600 on a single card alone (cheers to you if you can do that).

Anyways, if you want a short review, read the following sentence:
Bioshock (hottest game around) @ 1024*768 @ The HIGHEST possible settings without ever seeing a stutter.

If you want an inexpensive video card that will last you for years, this one's it. The reason I say this is because just as when Doom, Half-Life 2 and Farcry set the bar for hardware system requirements on 2004 and seeing how those who upgraded then are still able to play recent games without bigger upgrades (that being a dual core processor), expect this one to last even more than those good ol' 6800GT did in 2003/4.

* The good: This card performs MUCH better than I had expected. I hesitantly bought it for my cheapie backup computer which is a $300 SR2020NX Compaq from BestBuy. 1st I spent $50 for 2Gb of RAM which helped it, but not much. The only other mod is this XFX 8600GT video card, and WOW is my 1st impression. It plays Quake 4 very smoothly and it's beautiful. I just tried Enemy Territory - Quake Wars (Demo), and it plays smoothly as well.

* The bad: It is a bit noisy, and although it doesn't bother me a bit, some will complain after being used to their on-board video chip unit which doesn't NEED a fan.

* Overall this one is a winner and I recommend it without exception.

Let me start by taking care of a couple worries you might have from some other reviews.

First, the card runs just fine with a 300W power supply. No decrease in performance, no fried card or PS. I even found a comparison showing that the card draws LESS power than the 300W-approved 7600GS I replaced with it. However, I have not OCed it further than the factory OC, myself.

Secondly, I think the fan noise is a matter of personal taste. Yes, it's sort of loud -- but I think it will mainly bother people used to pre-builts, vs. people who build their own and stuff in a lot of fans to be safe. It's going to be almost silent to anyone who crammed one of the old AMD inferno monsters with five fans just to keep the thing from melting down, and loud to someone running, say, one of the nearly silent new HP prebuilts.

Finally, yes, it appears to run fairly hot. I got 61C idle during one test. But the CPU and case were still running cool, and I haven't seen any problems with the card, so I'll just not stress about it unless it becomes an actual problem. It could very well just have been an anomaly with the test software I ran.

Now, I'm going to repeat what a lot of others have said, and I mean it sincerely: This card has taken EVERYTHING I've thrown at it, and performed MUCH better than I expected. First, I tried HL2, Episode One. (Since I'm finally getting around to playing it -- darn you, TF2!) I maxed everything, and I mean everything, and it was smooth as silk. The only thing I ended up doing was reducing the resolution a notch, but that was because the aspect ratio made things look a little short and squat.

But I expected that kind of performance from that game. So, hey, it's a DX10 card, why not give DX10 a shot?
