I'm not videogamer so I have not many expectations about the product.
Quick delivery and easy to install. I haven't tried the additional applications.

Great Card But Check the Driver Install Aug. 7 2009
By N. Tornese - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Picked up this card for our Dell E520 after our original 256mb card fried. Great price and 512mb - installed and evidently windows installed it's own drivers - performance score went from 3.3 (motherboard card) to 3.2! Played with settings then installed driver on CD that came with card - said older driver than installed but tried it - voila performance score of 1.0! arggh - After reboot windows did not recognize the card and back to stock VGA adapter. I then went to Nvidia website and downloaded latest driver - installed and adjusted performance settings to "best apearance" and tweaked the Nvidia control panel video settings to 50% - ran test again and overall performance now at 4.0! Graphics score of 5.9 and gaming 4.3 - not too bad! Videos now run beautiful full screen HQ setting on 23" monitor - overall PC performance, screen loads etc ROCK NOW! VERY HAPPY FINALLY!
Worth the purchase - also no issues with fan noise at all - very quiet.

eVGA e-GeForce 8400 GTS 512MB DDR2 PCI-Express Graphics Card Feb. 29 2008
By Keith Burns - Published on Amazon.com
It is an excellent video card for the price. It is not the most advanced card for high-end gaming but it works great on Call to Duty 4. Windows Vista rates the card 3.5 on its performance scale.

22" widescreen displays perfectly w/ this card Nov. 3 2008
By Richard Genz - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Bought this to fix flickering and distortion on new 22" Soyo monitor. Previous video setup didn't offer native resolution setting of 1680x1050, 60hz. The 8400gs card does, and that made all the difference. Setup was smooth, documentation good. Only downside is some extra fan noise since card has its own fan. (Note--before installing, I used Windows Device Manager to disable my old CPU-integrated video adapter.)

eVGA makes great cards Nov. 12 2008
By John Bales - Published on Amazon.com

The eVGA GeForce 8400 GS is a nice little card. I used it in a Linux system and had no problem with it. My experience with eVGA graphics cards has always been excellent - great performance, great price, great warranty. They're always the first ones I look to when getting a new card.

Decent, affordable card June 21 2010
By O. C. - Published on Amazon.com

I watch a lot of movies and TV shows on my computer, many of them in hi-def. My embedded video chip worked fine for a while, but soon began to heat up after half an hour of use. So while this video card actually brought down my Windows Experience Index to 3.8, I can watch hours of HD video without this card heating up to 120 degrees Celsius, unlike my onboard video. (I'm guessing the onboard video had a higher rating because it had access to all of my RAM) Installation was a breeze. I updated the drivers when I first installed it and had no problem. Another excellent fact is that my computer only has a 300 Watt power supply, but this 350 Watt card works fine. The only problem so far with this card is that the fan is loud. My computer was fairly quiet before and now it is a little quieter than my XBox 360 (which is LOUD).
