3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Good quality video
High Def sound through HDMI

Cons: Won't wake up
Sometimes the resolution changes then resets itself?

Other Thoughts: I don't play too many games and I don't OC or run SLI so I can't tell you if this is a particularly loud, hot, fast, etc video card. I purchased it to replace my aging video card and use it primarily to watch Blu Rays and surf the internet on my HDTV. I can say that he Blu Ray is stunning. My Denon receiver that it is hooked up to recognizes the non-decoded HD audio through the HDMI and it sounds fantastic.

I am, however, having an issue with the video card not wanting to wake up from sleep mode. I can hear my PC's hard drives spin up and the lights light up, but no video or audio. Keyboard shortcuts and restarting don't seem to work either. I have to power down completely then restart my PC for the video card to turn back on. When that happens, it usually takes a little longer to reboot and I notice that my desktop icons are reshuffled. Super annoying!!

5 out of 5 eggsCorrection

Pros: Runs Cool
Straight-forward installation
Quiet
Good Value
Acceptable performance

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I want to correct my previous review (see below). I said in that review that this card has no performance advantage over the EAH4850. I discovered that there was an error in my benchmark, and this it has about twice the performance of the EAH4850. Sorry for the mistake.

4 out of 5 eggsGood replacement for ASUS EAH4850

Pros: Runs cool
Quiet
Acceptable performance
Straight-forward installation
Good value

Cons: No performance improvement over ASUS EAH4850

Other Thoughts: I just installed this card to replace a 5-year-old ASUS EAH 4850 (ATI Radeon HD 4850, 512 MB) which had become unreliable. Installation was straight-forward, and is proved to be a good replacement. Performance is almost identical to the old board, which was slightly disappointing to me. But it runs much cooler (46C - 70C), and I cannot hear the fan over the five other fans already running in the case. Delivery was fast, drivers install easily and work, etc.

4 out of 5 eggsAwesome master SLI card

Pros: The price!! 120$ for a NEW SLI card is perfect. The 550ti line must be getting phased out cause there aren't that many to choose from on any site.

Bought this to run SLI in my machine. Current card is an EVGA 550ti that came with my computer. Compared having the EVGA as the master card versus this one, and the Gigabyte definitely handles the anti-aliasing a lot better than the EVGA, mostly in water reflections and really complex textures.

The EVGA ran way hotter than this card too, it would surpass 70c easy and level off at about 73c... which was my main reason for putting it as the piggy back card.

This card is very quiet, fan is on 100% and you can't hear it over the EVGA's at 56%... but that card's fan is just plain ol' loud, but it's all I have to compare it to! Idles cool in my system @ 32c and Bioshock Infinite on Ultra plays at an average of 32 fps.

The Gigabyte card however never goes over 65c under full load and all in all I'm impressed and satisfied to the fullest.

Purchased Newegg since I got a few computer parts off bAmazon but I just don't know how their RMA stuff is and Newegg is the best so I got all my major parts here!

Cons: -Should have come with a bottom vented case back plate... you can't put anything right there it's a 2 slot card, why not let it breathe and put the slotted end like most other graphics cards? I have the case plate in right now but I'm going to order some vented ones...

-Wish it came in 2GB :(

-I guess it just a con of most video cards today since I was looking at other manufacturers but there is no hardware support. No screws, no adapters or brackets, just an outdated driver disc and a 6 pin to molex... I bought an 8600gts back in yesteryear and it came with so many extra doodads I loved it :(
oh well must be how they squeezed this down to 120$!

Other Thoughts: -I don't know how this card performs by itself. I have an Intel i7 3770, with 16GB of RAM, and the primary HDD is a Hitachi 1TB. The computer came with a 550ti so I'm running dual SLI and that is what I based my review on. Would definitely purchase again.

-Still really wish it came in 2GB, would have 5 all around if I could be sitting on a 2GB master card!

-Should have gotten expedited processing fricking got 1 day shipping and it took 2 days to build the order! Ahhhhh!!!!!! lol lesson learned

5 out of 5 eggsNice Card

Pros: I like this card because it was both affordable and it performs well. I didnt need a multi display card. I only use one monitor for my gaming. I use this card to play COD2, TF2, L4D2, and many other games. It seems very stable, quiet, and cool.

Cons: zilch

5 out of 5 eggsdecent card for the price

Pros: Very decent card for the price, runs the witcher 2 on ultra 1600 x 900 around 30 Fps which isn't the best but playable. Runs starcraft 2 max no lag avg 60 fps. Clocks safely to 955 MHz tried to push it further didn't get stable results. Runs cool at 63c on games and 28 at idle

Cons: Price dropped a couple of days after I got it bummer

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card

Pros: Works great, I have yet to experience lag issues with it. I was able to stream skyrim with several graphical enhancing mods to our HDTV without lag.

Cons: None so far.
