I got rid of that POS. Well actually let me take that back, the card is not a POS. Infact, if you have a nice CPU, the 8400GS 512MB can play Bioshock/Crysis/DMC, and Half Life 2, etc with ease or at certain settings between 1024x768 and 1280x1024. Couple people who i chat with on youtube and other forums, own the card and they say its pretty good. My CPU is old, so the 8400GS runs like POS on my computer. It played Crysis better, but every other game ran worse then my FX5500 and 6200 and 2400.
Also, the card is big as hell. The biggest PCI card i ever seen, so i had a hard time putting the thing in my tower and once i did, it took out my onboard sound, or like someone else said , i might of damage something when i put the card in. You need a BIGGER tower to use that PCI card and other people who bought it at newegg, was complaining about the same thing and they return it. Amazing, newegg took the card off their site, PNY made a mistake releasing the card. So anyways, right now i am using the Visiontek2400. I am buying the 8500GT as for my next PCI buy tho or i might be able to buy the Albatron 8500 or 8600gt, but i will not go into details on how i will obtain it. In the mean time, the Visiontek card is working much better, due to the 8.9 beta drivers
Yea it took a bit to load there, but awesome picture and nice scenery.
