Got it, it gets the job done. Don't expect anything amazing. But I guess for the price it's good.

How did you manage to get it for $50? Thats a really good deal for the price, just don't expect to be running most things on high settings.

I Use it for COD4, Oblivion, BF2, 2142, It plays Crysis, but not too well. Condemned, Bioshock, etc. All max. Except Crysis.

Hardly plays Lost Planet. Sometimes slows down in Oblivion.

Mine is the PNY OC 512 MB 8600, but same thing basically.

Works good for maybe another 6 months, then I'm getting 9600 GT.

Oh Yeah, the rest of my specs..

Athlon 64 X2 5600+ 3 ghz 2 GB 667 mhz ram Had 3 GB Ram, 1 stick died. :(

How many FPS do you get on CoD4, 2142, and BF2 with maxed out graphics in a 1280x1024 res?

privategomez;4320992How many FPS do you get on CoD4, 2142, and BF2 with maxed out graphics in a 1280x1024 res?

Res=1440*900

COD4- Maxed (2x AA, not 4X) Average 65 FPS Max 100+ FPS(singleplayer Multi is a bit less) BF2 Maxed Full AA- 95 FPS Average, max 101 FPS 2142 Maxed Full AA- Average 70 FPS Max 90+

1280x1024 (my current res) COD4- average 65 FPS Max 110+ BF2- About the same as above 2142- Still, about same as above.

Can play Crysis with mixed high/med effects/graphics about 19 FPS 30 FPS max

I'm actually very happy about that. BF2, 2142, and CoD4 were my main concerns. Not to mention lower requirement games such as, America's Army, MoH: A, MoH: AA and expansions, War rock, HL2, etc.

Yeah, those will all play flawlessly.

in HL2/ CSS I get 120+ FPS full AA

Though, I think mine might be a bit more powerful than yours... This is mine:Newegg.com - PNY VCG86512GXPB-OC GeForce 8600GT 512MB 128-bit GDDR3 PCI Express x16 HDCP Ready SLI Supported Video Card - Desktop Graphics / Video Cards
