True, it's a rather odd high-end cpu/low-end gpu combination.
2  Hardware / Graphics Cards / XpertVision GeForce 8500 GT Sonic, 256MB GDDR3 on: May 25, 2007, 11:50:40 PM
Hi all!

Nice to see a review here of a real budget card (http://www.fudzilla.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=1155&Itemid=1). Being on a budget myself I got a XpertVision GeForce 8500 GT Sonic, 256MB GDDR3. I can confirm the results of the Gainward card review. The XpertVision runs stock at core/memory 600/1200, but got it easily up to 700/1400 using the stock cooler. Have it running on my A64/4000+@2800, ASRock S939NF6G-VSTA and was amazed by the results compared to the onboard GeForce 6150SE.

Handles all games like a champ so far under Vista at 1280x1024. The GDDR3 and high clocks compared to other 8500GT definitly help.  Smiley
I am sure the card will get me through the year.  Wink

Also no problem with my old no-name 350W PSU, 16A@12V. Was afraid the oc'd 4000+ and a GF8xxx PCIe card would be a bit too much for it but works like a charm!

Btw, card was just 79,99 Euro at Peluga in Vienna.
