Pros

fast enough for 19' full screen monitor
quiet, cool in windows mode
Cons
not fast enough
Summary
Can play previous generation games at highest resoultion and high settings(eg FEAR, Bioshock), but the newer games, can only* play at med at 1280*1024. Then again, the price compensates for this. Great buy for budget gamer!

Pros

Great Card - Great Price
DirectX 10 for a cheap price.
Cons
Rebate failed because there was no Proof of Purchase on box.
BFG and NCIX were unable to help me with this problem.
Summary
Great Card - Great Price
DirectX 10 for a cheap price.
If you are looking for a decent card that can run top end games, this is the one.

Pros

Cheap (Purchased it in sale)
DX 10
Great Graphics
MFG Lifetime Warranty
Stock OCed
Cons
Loud only when booting
Summary
Awesome MFG OC'ed Graphics card...
Scared me at first when booting, since the fan was loud, but after initial boot, it gets quiet...
It has MFG lifetime warranty, so no problems on the breakage...And supports SLI
Awesome for the budget SLI gamers...

Pros

Quiet, supports DX10, does not require a 6-pins PCI-E power connector
Cons
Not as fast as a X1950PRO in DX9
Summary
First, this card has a loud fan when booting up, but as soon as the video driver kicks in, the fan is quiet, event under load. I am using Vista, and performance in DX10 is not really there in Bioshock, the only DX10 game I played. In DX9, it is fast as long as I don't activate AA. Overall, if you do a lot of gaming, you better go for a GTS, but other than that, this card works great, is quiet and is a good value for the money.

Pros

Cheap at $100
Fast
Quiet if fan is not going fast.
Cons
Loud fan if under big load
CANT WATCH A MOVIE ON TV AND SO SOMETHING ELSE AT THE SAME TIME UNLIKE THE OLD CARDS.
Summary
With my old 6600gt i always used a mirror option or something so i could watch movies on my tv while i still use the desktop. Unfortunately the new driver and this card don't support it. It was extremely frustrating and finding out ATI cards let you do it makes it worse. Have not had a chance to use DX10 because i only have XP but seems to be a solid card. It has a loud fan but after booting up it goes silent.

Experience: 5 Weeks

Pros

Low power requirement
Good performance for the sub 150$ vc market
Cons
Not as good as the x1950p series cards
Weak DX10 support
Summary
While this card claims DX10 support it is outperformed by the x1950p ati cards. I have 2 of these that I run in SLI with a NF4 motherboard. With the low power requirement on these cards it is a great option for people with prebuilt computers that don't want to upgrade the PSU. While I'm not giving it 4 or 5 stars it is still a solid product, just not the greatest price for current gaming cards.

Pros

Smaller design takes up less space, doesn't need a PSU cable for extra power, performs just fine for decent gaming. 100$!!
Cons
Fan sounds like a screaming banshee until the software kicks in when windows loads up. Hot air blows into case not out.
Summary
This unit was on sale, and for 100$ it performs pretty well. nVidia has a universal driver system which is neat, no learning curve moving from a 7800GTX. I paid 300$ for the GTX and only 100$ after rebate for this one. Probably won't handle DX10 all that great but I'm hoping it'll crunch DX9 games just fine.

Pros

Affordable.
DX10 support.
Warranty.
Cons
None for the price.
Summary
Pretty decent card which offers good value for the price. I was suprised to find that with it I can run slightly aged games such as Half Life 2, Doom 3, Oblivion and Call of Duty 2 maxed on on 1680X1050 wide screen. Overall, if you are on a budget you can't go wrong with this card.

Pros

Powerful for midrange GPU.Overclocks.Good frames per second.
Cons
Card runs a bit hot.
Summary
Upgraded from 7600GT in my secondary PC.Not much improvement but it does have HDTV out and Direct X 10.The rebate is being processed.Good mid-range video card for the after rebate sale price of $99.

Pros

Awesome price (got it for $99 w rebate)
You get more than you would expect for the price.
Runs pretty cool.
Cons
Not the fastest card but who cares, if you need a budget card this is a great choice.
Fans a little loud.
Summary
I don't game very much so i cant say how great the performance would be but for normal everyday use even with demanding applications i've never noticed a slow down.
You can push the oc further if desired (still plenty of head room).
If you aren't looking for flawless gaming graphics this is a great card for the price. You definitely get more than you pay for.
