This product is one of the most expensive and one of the best pieces of equipment that I had purchased for my computer. First, I must say that newegg.com did a good job of getting me the piece in a timely manner. When I recieved this monster, I opened the box and pulled out the biggest video card I have ever seen!

Let me give you some specs on this card. NVidia GeForce powered, 512mb of GDDR3 ram, overclocked out of the factory, PCI Express x16, Lifetime Warranty, Gamer's choice for High Definition Gaming, and it is DirectX 10 ready. I love the response on this card. It displays beautiful graphics in games such as Unreal Tournament 3, Call of Duty 4, and others of the next generation of gaming. The card will playback HD and Blu-Ray discs like it is nothing.

But with every positive thing, there must be a negative. I currently own an Antec Nine Hundred series case to house my computer and I must admit, this card does not allow for much room. My system is comprised of an Asus P5K-E, Western Digital Raptor 150gb, Intel E8400, Antec 800W PSU, and 2gb of ram. With the positioning of the card on the motherboard, it will cover the first SATA controller and the power connector is not easy to snap into place.

Although there are a few draw backs (price, size), I would highly recommend this card for someone that wants to play some games and still want to do office work or video editing.
