By J. Steen on January 19, 2012
Pros:
I bought this card in 2007. The card has been very good to me. Many hours of gaming have gone though this guy.
I can still play some of the top games with decent graph settings turn up. It's not the best graphic settings, but the games are smooth and still look wonderful.

Now here is the bad...kind of...

Cons:
My card is on it's last leg. It started flaking out about 4 months ago. My screen would turn a bit pink and crash my computer.I have baked my card now for the second time. Yes, in the oven for 10 minutes @ 200-250. This has fixed it both times, but alas I know this card is heading towards the light.

On a side note. I think the card is overprice for being 5 years old. Considering I bought it for $130 5 years ago, but hey maybe I spent to much 5 years ago.

Works excellently. The only problem is now my rear cooling fan runs like a jet engine on takeoff when the card signals it is working hard. Oh well, newer machines can be told to run the fan slower. No worries with the card.

I'm running 2 of these SLI. I have had NO problems. It was an upgrade from my EVGA GeForce 9400gt, and I love having the DDR3 speeds. I have had no compatibility problems/errors. Buy at your own risk, but I am very satisfied.

It is fast for the price. It is not going to be good for the latest games, but for every day use and some light gaming, it is great. Dual DVI is awesome. This card runs cool and is not loud.

Though the unit was sold as a used unit, I expected it to be clean. The units fans arrived dirty--I used some dust buster to clean it. A little touch like that would be appreciated.
