This is a fantastic card. I was a little afraid I might have a power issue since it is going in a HP Pavilion which has an integrated video system. Previously I had put a ATI Radeon card in a system and did not have nearly the power for that -- but this Nvidia card needs a mere 350watt P/S to be happy.

One thing, the fan is a little noisy. I thought I had read reviews on it being quiet, but this card is the loudest thing in my system. It is not as loud as a PS3 or XBox 360 by any means, but you can hear the fan.

I needed a better video card for Call of Duty 4 and this was the best value out there. Easy to install this card has worked perfectly ever since! No problems - all settings are easy to adjust.

I didn't want to spend too much but wanted to get all I could for my buck - this was it. You will be happy with this card!

Its really a great card with much more capabalities then what i wouldve expected from a 256MB card. It runs far cry , FEAR and many other big grafix games smoothly on high display configs.
i love playing GRAW2 on high config, and love the effects and the landscape. its great to be honest and also cheap and with DX10 and most of the latest tech. so wut else would you want?

I consider myself a casual gamer; which means I have just enough time in my busy life to play one or two newer games a year. After researching gamers' websites looking for a new card to replace my 6800, I found the 8800 GT. Unfortunately the specs on my Dell could not run such a powerful card without upgrading the PSU. The 8600 GT became my next choice. The card did not receive very positive reviews, but it appeared to be the best card for my computer.

I chose Nvidia because of my positive past experience with their chips (TNT2 and the 6800).

Pros: The 8600 GT is a good midrange card for people who like to play the newer games without breaking the bank. This card was easy to install and worked perfectly when I installed the latest NVIDIA drivers. I was also able to overclock the card a bit to receive better frame rate for graphic intensive games like Bioshock.

I read that XFX creates quality products and the warranty is lifetime and modder friendly.

Cons: I was a little surprise to how loud the fan was. Another concern is the temperature. My card idles at 54-57 C and will go as high as 80 under load (not overclocked).

If you have the specs then buy a stronger card. The money is worth it. If you are on a budget or have a weaker computer then this card will satisfy your gaming needs.

When I recieved this card, I was concerned about the minimum power requirement(350 watts)for my Dell 531 Inspiron, which has a 300 watt power supply. I contacted XFX and was told this would probably not be a problem. Have been using it with Company of Heroes, which selected the settings for me (medium level @ normal resolution), which looks fine to me, and no problems so far.

This card is probably one of the best for nongaming computers, and moderate system requirements for graphics. I replaced a Radeon HD pro 2400, and received significant improvement, as well as less problems with one of my other games. It also performed excellently with Reason 4(music software), with maximum settings for performance - there was no lag in the graphic interface.

In sum, this is a good card, with a good price,for nongaming computers.

This is a great video card, especially for the money. It performs fast and the fan is quiet - all my existing applications and games performed so much better. In addition, the dual DVI was great as I'm running my secondary screen on my Samsung 56" DLP and this card is excellent. HOWEVER, my primary objective for purchasing this card was to view HD DVD's and BluRay DVD's and unfortunately, this particular 8600GT card is NOT HDCP compliant. XFX says that their 8600GTS series is HDCP compliant, and not their 8600GT, despite the NVidia website information. So if you are in need of an HDCP compliant card, be careful, this is not HDCP, which is the only reason it did not recieve 5 stars from me. I had to RMA and got the 8600GTS as the replacement.

Excellent card for the money. I got it mainly to do dual monitors which it does an ok job on but not great. The graphics are excellent and it really makes my Samsung LCD shine.
It does have a fan which isn't super loud, but when you are not used to a fan running all the time - it is annoying. Hopefully moving my PC to the floor will keep me from hearing it.
Installing instructions are almost non-existant. If you have never installed a card before - get help from someone who has done it before.
