Pros - Cheaper than other Quads
- Good bang for buck
Cons - Not the fastest on the market
- Over-clocking risky
- Only 4mb cache
Summary Bottom-line is, if you are thinking about buying this card then I say go for it. The price is very nice for the bang, but you could also go with the earlier made Q6600 and just over-clock, to get more speed, with more cache. I have read that the Q8300 could possibly be OC'ed to 3.2GHz. Over-all the card is just right for your avg. gamer or mid-high gamer.
