4 Star Review  tomshardware.com - Dec 31, 1969

The GV-NX666256DP2 and the GV-N66256DP are nearly identical, and offer the same basic functions. The only real difference between the two is that this version of the card works with PCI-Express. Using the top port on the card, video output can be delivered through S-Video or in HDTV format.

5 Star Review   By member Renegade8100 - Sep 14, 2005   

Strengths: Price($115.00), blazing speed/power, overclockablility sweet jesus, best card i've ever owned.

Weakness: that damn heatsink just didnt fit my shuttle sn25p, i couldnt give up the card, its literally thee best 6600 available.

ok here, im extatic. stock: Core 450 Memory 501 my OC with artic silver 5 and logisys something or other. its a vantec "knock off" but its exactly the same thing, all copper and it comes with ramsinks and frag tape. new core: 521 New Mem: 617 STABLE! used ati tool beta artifact scanner for 2 days nothing. I've overclocked it to the performace of a 6600GT, and its SLI. If this isnt incentive enough to buy then your stupid. You literally save 100 dollars even after the new vga cooling kit and it outperforms without overclock the x700 pro. I am more than happy. Gigabyte and their turboforce rock my socks. just fyi, my card before this was a ati 9600XT 256 overclocked to 550/360. I am no fanboy, this was just amazing.

5 Star Review   By member karenlu - Sep 7, 2005   

Strengths: Outstanding graphics

Weakness: None so far

This is a great graphics card at a great price. I bought a new PC with integrated graphics that just wouldn't cut the mustard. This card makes my new PC complete. I couldn't be happier. Another great feature is that this card has a 3 year warranty. Most of the comparable cards in this price range have only 1 year. I highly recommend it!

Strengths: Quiet ,no fan,great performance

Weakness: does not support video in.The card because of the heatsinks is too thick so an extra pci xpress card cannot fit below

Strengths: Excelent video card. PCIe 16x

This is a great videocard. If you need a quiet computer, this is a great choice for video. This card doesnt have a fan, instead it uses heat pipe and large heatdinks. This is no an SLI card.
