"I upgraded from a 2400 and couldn't be happier."4.5 starson by egil7erik
Pros: Almost real 3D, even makes CAD look much better, great for animations. I'm impressed with quality of graphics compared to cost!
Cons: current driver seems hard to find, although this card works well with existing driver. Would be nice if I could make it true 3D on three monitors but seems to work as SLI on single monitor, but still looking for correct driver.
Summary: I didn't go wrong with this card and would recommend it to anyone who isn't stuck on the most expensive equipment on the market. There are better GPU's out there but nothing that compares in price for quality to the 8500 GT. I'm very happy with the pair I've been using for several months. Look for rebates and sales, I got mine on a rebate special for less than half of retail. Jimi Montana
