      Good Video Card for the Price

      I do a lot of video editing for my work. Having just the standard card built into my system board, which was pretty decent when I purchased it, I thought I could improve my video quality by adding a new video card. The GeForce product line is inexpensive, since I will be getting a newer computer within the year, I didn't want to spend a lot of money. I was hoping to get a 1 gig card, but the 6200 at 512MB was a big improvement to my current card. If you haven't even installed a video card, they can be simple or tricky. My personal system is pretty tight on space, so the card just barely fit. Once installed it was easy to continue the setup and it has worked just fine. The Biggest Problem was ordering through BestBuy.com I needed a PCI card for my system, so in doing so I used their search window and thought but clicking on the PCI button I would only be getting PCI results. Not so, it also included PCI-Express results and that lead to me ordering the wrong product, getting it and having to return it and re-order then wait another 10 days for it to arrive. It also offers Open GL2.0, but is not Open CL compatible as some of their newer cards are. Other minor problem I have noticed is some slight buzz through my speakers when scrolling on a web page. Not sure if this is connected to the card, but wasn't happening before the install. Also, since this does have more memory, after first installing there was a very distinct plastic odor coming from the PC. It went away after a few hours, but was sort of scary to think my computer was about to go up in flames from just a new video card install. Skip this model if you can afford a newer one, but for what it is, it does work as expected.

      The Geforce 8400 is a great card for upgrading a standard office computer to allow for multiple monitors. The installation was quick and after software installation was complete, I was enjoying dual monitors shortly thereafter. No noticable noise. I run various office software with no major rendering or video needs so i've yet to push this card to its limits. For $40 bucks, its a easy fit. Worked just fine with Windows 7 64bit OS

      Replaced an old, much more expensive card that was constantly crashing my computer, multiple times per day. Since I've installed this card, the graphics have looked much better and my computer has been up for over 9 days so far. The installation was simple and the included software is interesting if you want to play around with overclocking. Extremely good value considering this only cost $30.

      We are setting up dual monitor support for a lot of our users. These cards for performance and cost are great. I can send a card out to a site and someone with no tech skill whatsoever can put them in the pc. Drop the cd in the drive and install the software. They have more issues with figuring out the "blue connector or the white connector goes to where"

      I needed a cheap card with bare minimal. That's exactly what this is. It's about as good as your Intel or amd on board gpu. If you have one, don't get a card, just use onboard

      The card was suppose to be packaged in an anti-static bag and it was in bubble wrap. The fan ran, but after hooking up a VGA LCD flat panel monitor, the card didn't display graphics.

      This product was very inexpensive. It allows you to watch HD videos without all the cutting frames and very fluid. It was easy to install and simple instructions.
