  • newegg Super Alloy Power Premium alloys inside power delivery components defeat the heat for cards that run better, cooler, and longer than reference.
  • newegg Dust-proof Fan Unique fan design dissipates heat efficiently while extending a graphic card’s lifespan by 25% (for reference) through increased dust and particle resistance.
  • newegg GPU Tweak GPU Tweak utility helps you modify and tune clocks, power consumption targets, voltages, and fan performance via an intuitive interface. Detailed specs and actual card status are available with GPU-Z. Monitoring widget provides real-time and detailed multi-parameter info. Automatically check and update drivers and BIOS versions.

  • newegg Kepler GPU Architecture NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not just for maximum performance, but optimal performance per watt. The new SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant and power efficient graphics card.
  • newegg NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
  • newegg NVIDIA CUDA Unlocks the power of GPU’s processor cores to accelerate the most demanding system tasks

Pros: Quiet
runs cool

5 out of 5 eggsLinux compatibility

Pros: I wanted to go from two to three monitors. Cards that will run three monitors under Linux are scarce and expensive. I found a couple of people who mentioned this 640 worked for them, so I bought this one.

I hooked up two DVI monitors and a VGA monitor; I don't have anything to plug the HDMI port to. openSUSE 13.2 came up and spread KDE across six feet of monitor. Easy-sleazy; no configuration file editing, no video utility program, it just worked.

I have no idea how its gaming performance is, but it plays HD movies just fine on one monitor while I have a sheaf of windows open on the others.

I'm using the default NVidia driver provided with my Linux distribution, not the "real" one from NVidia. Though I've had other, older cards that wouldn't drive two monitors without linking the NVidia binary in, the new Linux driver seems to handle multiple monitors flawlessly.

I am very happy with the card.

Cons: The card is quite large, takes one slot, and since it takes two backplane openings, it may block access to another. If you have any other expansion cards you need to look at where your PCIx3 slot is in relation to the others; motherboard manufacturers seem to be economizing on slots nowadays.

This isn't unusual for medium to high end cards nowadays, but not all motherboard makers seem to have taken the hint yet.

Other Thoughts: The jump from two monitors to three isn't as awesome as going from one to two, but it's definitely work it, as cheap as monitors are nowadays.

5 out of 5 eggsDecent card for older pc's

Pros: Can run 4 displays at one time*
Good price for # of displays.
Runs good on only 350 watt psu.
good for older pc's
good for general use

Cons: Seems to need windows 7 or above to run more then 2 displays at one time.
Takes up 2 card slots.
dvi are digital only outputs.

Other Thoughts: owned for about 5 months
i have a dual core E5300 2.60 ghz cpu. 350 watt psu
I have pci 1.0a
This card is probably Bottle necked by my pc , YMMV

In windows xp you will be limited to any 2 displays at one time.

In windows 7 , you can attach and use up to 4 at one time (i have tested only with 3 )my 4th display is on order.

I can run many games , but not everything.
unreal , minecraft , killing floor , ut3 , call of duty etc all run ok.

I can play minecraft and unreal across 3 screens with decent fps.

I bought this card to give me more displays and to replace a 8 year old s300se radoen that was showing its age. in a attempt to keep this older pc alive a bit longer.

I am happy with my purchase for what i paid.

1 out of 5 eggsTerrible card

Pros: Cheap, easy to install

Cons: Terrible card. I've had it for about 2 1/2 months now. I contacted ASUS and I sent in my card and they send it back "Fixed" but it continues to overheat it started about a week after I got it back just like it did at the beginning when I first bought it. Waiting for tomorrow to talk to someone from ASUS about the card again and send it back.
Wouldn't recommend buying this card.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Easy to install, good graphics. I'm only using the HDMI, but appears to work great.

Cons: Little bulky, but alot of output options.

Other Thoughts: Used this in a Steam box and had no issues at all. Driver on the CD is out of date, but it was easy to get it current.
