Based on the fast and power-efficient NVIDIA Kepler architecture, the GIGABYTE GV-N640OC-2GI delivers game-changing performance for strikingly beautiful graphics and realistic environmental interaction - and performance is only part of the story. Ultra Durable 2 design uses first-class components including Ferrite Core Chokes, Low RDS (on) MOSFET and Lower ESR Solid Capacitors for unmatched stability and durability in demanding conditions. Custom-designed 10 cm cooler gives exceptional thermal performance while still operating in ultra low noise, so you can get immersive entertainment without any annoying buzz.

  • newegg Ultra Durable 2 Using high quality components on graphics cards is the key factor for having a long lasting, stable and reliable product. GIGABYTE is again setting a new standard by using Ferrite Core Chokes, Low RDS (on) MOSFET and Lower ESR Solid Capacitors, providing the stability and reliability for their high-end graphics solution. In addition, GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 Edition graphics cards now feature a sophisticated layout topology. This state-of-the-art power design from GIGABYTE delivers the ideal integration of thermal, electric characteristics, digital signals, power circuitry and optimum placement of components for enhanced graphics performance.
  • newegg GIGABYTE custom-designed 10 cm cooler As opposed to the stereotype, GIGABYTE is able to maximize fan size to 10cm with the latest cooling design. With a 10cm fan, the card is virtually silent.
  • newegg Gold plated HDMI Gold plated, durable, large contact area connectors have been implemented for optimum signal transfer between connections.
  • 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 previous 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 New Anti-aliasing Mode: FXAA Anti-aliasing smoothes out jagged edges but can be demanding on framerates. FXAA is a new antialiasing technology that produces beautiful smooth lines with minimal performance impact. And with Kepler based GPUs, you'll be able to enable FXAA in hundreds of game titles through the NVIDIA Control Panel.

Pros: Easy install
quiet
cheap
plays everything flawless
I got this card in 02/07/13 it's now 08/14/13 and I haven't had one issue with the card so far. It's been outstanding, plays Skyrim maxed, CS:GO maxed, PoE maxed LoL maxed never had an issue with it so far!

Cons: they made a revision that's the same price but faster <_< not really a con

Other Thoughts: if your budget is 100$ you will not be disapointed

5 out of 5 eggsTRIPLE DIGITAL LCD BLISS

Pros: I wanted the cheapest Triple Digital LCD capable card I could find, this was it, and it works as advertised. No dealing with Display Port adapter non-sense as with many other multiple monitor capable cards.

I have 3 22" Dell 1080P LCDs, 2 hooked up with DVI, 1 with HDMI to DVI. All working perfectly.

Cons: NONE

Other Thoughts: Not really a con, but if you use an HDMI to DVI adapter, it won't really fit next to the DVI plug without some modding...I cut the rubber around the HDMI adapter to reduce it's width and allow it to fit...working perfectly now.

You could always use a female to male HDMI cable to get around this issue.

1 out of 5 eggsDrivers do not work

Pros: When it did work the display was nice

Cons: The drivers did not work properly. Anytime I tried to reinstall the driver, it would crash my system and I would have to boot in safe mode. I had several other techs look at my computer and they said that it was just a bad video card. Also, there was no updates for the drivers in the month that I waited.

Other Thoughts: dont waste your time

4 out of 5 eggsmoire like ...

Pros: Surprisingly fast for a low end card.. the fan is silent!. low power.

snappy on the desktop.

Cons: the digital outputs are a must for usage of this card, because...

the analog output (vga 16) or blue jack, my/your monitor will show " light wavy Interference lines in the background on light colored screens" it does not appear on the dvi-d outputs...

the dvi-d output can't use an Adapter on the dvi-d outputs to allow output to an analog monitor (using an adapter avoids the Interference lines problem)

Other Thoughts: the moirè patterns on the analog vga output is a moot problem, becase every monitor now have digital inputs.
it is just a heads up for those using analog monitors or the analog inputs on a monitor.

if you are a "second life" player this card is a perfect low end card, and by extension i would assume for "WOW"...

5 out of 5 eggs4 Monitors Extended!

Pros: Can run 4 Multi-Monitors Extended

Easy Just Plug and Play

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I only have one PCI-e slot and i needed to run 4 multiple monitors. I tired to install a pci video card and pci-e but on 64 bit windows 7 but i had nothing but trouble. So i need to find a card that could do 4 screens .

I was a little worried because of the price but this card is great it was just plug and play. I didnt have to configure anything my computer recognized it right away. I am now running 4 screens extended desktop.

For Gaming. I am a causal gamer. I have steam and i do play games. It runs my games smoothly. But i am also playing half life 2 an older game. I havent tried any newer games but i am not a hardcore gamer. So this card is perfect for me.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Small profile, easy to install, quiet

Cons: was expecting just a bit more out of this one based on the specs and reviews of this gpu

Other Thoughts: after a week ive had to request a rma as the card crashed and no longer responsive...based on my experience i would say be wary and perhaps spend a couple bucks more on a different card...

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: The card is only $99, you can get better cards for that but lets keep reading. 384 cuda cores gives it good power and at only 65w (you can put the 640 in a pc even if you dont have a powerful PSU). It runs cool 30c idle 40-45c at load. for light gaming it will do fine but dont expect much.

Cons: You can get better cards for a $99. It has a bad mem. bandwidth.
thats all I can see as a con as of now.

Other Thoughts: I am using this card as a physX card and for that purpose the 640 dose great. Its high cuda count is all that is needed for physX.

1 out of 5 eggsNOT GOING TO WORK WITH XPS 8300

Pros: Good Price and the customer service at "Gigabyte" was outstanding

Cons: I Didn't get to use it and Dell customer service was terrible.

Other Thoughts: This Video Card is not compatible with the Dell XPS 8300. It Meets all requirements to be compatible, but possibly, the dell motherboard does not supply enough power to run this particular video card. I spoke with Dell directly and they don't know why. I spoke with Gigabyte directly and they tested the same video card in the exact same XPS 8300 plus they swapped out the power supply with a 750watt power supply and after several attempts to modify the bios, they could not get it to work either. Please inform your customers.

5 out of 5 eggsGIGABYTE GV-N640OC-2GI

Pros: Price! Although this is the weak link on my new build I knew it would be. Just can't justify the prices of the high end video cards. Performed great out of the box. even as weak link it still scored a 7.2 running two 19" screens,

Cons: None so far.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for what, it is.

Pros: All the latest tech has been included in this compact card. Four (4) display outputs (you can use 4 monitors without fuss). Cool, idles at 30C, doesn't go above 45C under load. Reasonably fast. It runs Crysis 2 fine @ 1366x768 on Extreme settings. Practical: full HDMI (no need to spend on additional adapters). Supports the latest generation of nVIDIA PureVideo HD (great for HTPC). Power-efficient, does not need any cables to run, feeds entirely from PCI-Express slot. Quiet (a 100mm fan runs at 48% @ 1500 RPM) but you can make it silent with a quick bios mod (at the expense of higher operating temps, of course). Overclocked out of box, it's a little faster than the usual stock models (with a littme memory overclocking, you can further tweak the card to match your particule needs). 2 gigs of VRAM, great for developing. Runs rock solid with 301.42 drivers.

Cons: Price

Other Thoughts: Please, be aware that this card was not designed for high-resolution gaming (look for the 600 Series with GDDR5 memory onboard instead), in lower resolutions without AA, it's quite capable, though.
