Pros low power consumtpion, DDR3 ram, Silent as a sleeping baby, SLI ready, smoothly running high def games like COD4 and COD5 and Tomb Raider 7 etc.
Cons jerky 1080 performance on video playback (unlike its game performance)
Summary I did a lot of research for low power consuming nvidia cards for my Dell XPS 400 (dell is a loser when it comes to PSU) and I came up with this card. 8800GT was another option but could never try it cos the power supply for 8800GT is borderline for my PSU (375W) and there is a risk of frying your mother board.
I replaced a nvidia 6800 which used to make a lot of noise with this card and it amazed me by its silent action!
I'm playing all hard core 3D games on it and enjoying it.
Thank you nvidia!
Hence, recommended for Dell users.
Pros Much more powerful and versatile than my previous 128 MB ATI graphics card, Very affordable price (only $67 at amazon), plays modern computer games very well, dual DVI outs (with VGA adapters) with one s-video out, easy to install
Cons Had to get a new DVD codec because the one I had was not compatible with the card.
Summary I bought this last Christmas and it hasn't failed me yet. I play a lot of video games and I had to buy this video card because my old ATI card that came with my DELL computer wouldn't play several newer games. This card slid right into my 16x PCI express slot and I simply had to install some drivers from the disk that it came with. All of my games now play fine and several I can play at the highest graphics settings. I can also use dual monitors and can also use the s-video out to watch videos on the TV.
The only problem is my old DVD player decoder was incompatible with the card (Sonic Cineplayer) and I had to get a new one.
One more bit of advice: Don't buy this card in stores because you'll just be wasting money.
