      Disadvantages

      Nice price tag + can play all games (maybe not on highest setings) and is good for photo editing too

      Wow i got this card for £78 from www.ebuyer.com, i bought because i had heard it can play crisis which is a game with the best graphics (at the time of this review). once it came i installed it with no problems, didnt use the drivers from the cd however because they are always outdated, downloaded the newest from nvidias site.
      In terms of performance this card copes very well,i am running vista and my processor is not the best (amd x2 4000+) but i am still able to play any game i want to. To get an idea of what this card can do i could play bioshock on highest settings, crisis on medium and with highest setting on company of heroes this card has no lag.
      On the half life 2: lost coast benchmark this card gets an average of 91 fps and thats with the highest settings and a 1280 by 1024 resolution. For online gaming this card is capable of team fortress 2 with highest settings and anti aliasing on, the only lag i get is server lag. Not forgetting counter strike source benchmark where this card gets 162fps with highest possible settings and a 1280 by 1024 resolution which is very good.

      if you like overclocking then i have this card running at core 702 mhz, shader clock at 1566 and memory at 868mhz. Im sure this card can go higher but i have not tried it. With these clock speeds after a few hours of bioshock on max the temp of the card was only in the low 60s (c)
      I recommend this card to anyone wanting to play online games or new releases but cant afford a 8800 card. With graphically intense games this card will still manage but just at lower settings.
