Great video
Huge Fan
Bought this to upgrade from an 8500GT and what a huge upgrade it was. This flies through games, movies, everything i have used it for it hasn't disappointed! The only weakness is the gigantic fan that blocks one of my PCI slots.

Experience: 7 Days
Very Cost Effective, Cheap
Lacks a little power
I bought this card to put in computer I'm building for the wife. It was nice and cheap, but suprisingly powerful for what you pay for it. Good deal.

Experience: 5 Days
on for 50 bucks after mail in rebate.
none so far
going into a folding rig I am building. right now I am trying to get it all set up so I dont know the ppd it gives yet.

Has a program to overclock, gives temperature, fan settings on how fast to run depending on heat, etc.
Works great and smoothly.
Cheap and efficient.
None in my opinion unless maybe if I tried some games that are hardcore on graphics but I could probly still run those games on low settings if anything.
This video card works amazing for me, it runs every game I play on max settings flawlessly, my friend has the same video card so I tested it somewhat when I was at his house and it can run more than 1 game on max settings flawlessly, its amazing haha.

Greatly priced for the quality and it comes with an application that tells you the temperature and sliders that let you overclock the video card, I clocked mine to 701 MHZ and it works great for me haha

If you're tired of using the intergrated graphics in your motherboard and of getting killed in FPS games due to low framerate and etc but you dont want to spend like 300 bucks on a video card then this is the product for you no question about it.

-large Zalman-style cooling
-pretty good price to performance(after rebate)
-fairly quiet
-long card for budget range
-no control for fan speed
-all forgiven for price paid
-look elsewhere for high resolutions
To be fair, I only played with this a few days while doing a budget upgrade for a neighbor, but a huge step up from the x800xl it replaced! There are certainly better cards, but at ~ $40 AR, hard to beat for price to performance ratio. Fairly quiet, easily overclockable, flys thru WOW (his game of choice) 1440x900.

Nice size fan and heatsink, and great price.
Needed to buy a bigger psu
This video card was a great price. I needed a new one since my EVGA chunk of garbage went on me for the second time. The fan is HUGE, the heatsink is a nice size. The only thing that sucked was I had to buy a bigger PSU, since mine didn't have all I needed...which is cool, because now I have a better PSU!! Video quality is awesome.

Great price
Plays any game
Got this to build my friends computer as it was pretty cheap and can play most of the games out there right now. Works pretty good, nothing wrong with it so far.

Nice price
Good middle-of-the road gaming card
Best PPD/$ and PPD/watt folding card on the market
Runs a little hot
No fan speed control
Fan uses two slots of space
Picked this up for around $40AR about a month ago to use in a folding box. Very good card for folding - can be OC'd to 700/1750/1000 FAH-stable (not sure if it could do that kind of OC stable for gaming, as I've never tried).

The 8800GS or 9600GSO has always been a very good value for the quality of the card, but this particular card kicks that value thing up a notch, and I'm very happy with the purchase.

The one fault of this card is that the Zalman fan is really only okay at cooling. When OC'd and folding, my card regularly hits 85 degrees, which is a little bit warmer than I would like. Mind you, that's in a system with three other cards (1 other 8800GS and 2 9600GSO's). So, to be fair, I also have the same card in a different system with slightly better cooling and only one other GPU (another 8800GS), and the ASUS card only goes up to about 78-79 degrees, which is exactly where I'd expect it to be.

So the cooling solution is only so-so, and not much of an improvement over the stock 8800GS cooler, which is kind of a bummer considering it takes up two slots, but oh well. At this price, that's space I can afford to lose.

Also I should point out that the 8800GS or 9600GSO - generally speaking - is the best folding card out there from a PPD/$ and PPD/watt perspective. There are many other cards that crunch the proteins faster and more efficiently, but they cost quite a bit more and consume quite a bit more energy.

low cost, scaled-down power usage
minimal packaging, poor Asus utilities
a very cost-effective stop gap measure until ati/nvidia improve performance and energy efficiency at the upper ends of their lines, this card worked okay for me even with the resource pig known as Far Cry 2

Experience: 3 Weeks
-great unit for the price
-runs well with settings on high for alot of the newest games
-you loose on pci slot
bought this card for 45 bucks!! (minus MIR) Runs CoD4, Red Alert 3, World in Conflict with setting on high or very high! Have not complained one bit. For the budget games this is a card that you will not be disappointed in!! I guess my only "beef" is that you loose one PCI slot from the large gpu heatsink, but hey who is going to complain.
