5 out of 5 eggsAmazing card for the price.

Pros: This card is great, I've had it for years and the only thing it can't do well is play those terribly optimized games. (Metro, I'm looking at you.)

It runs most decently optimized games at 1080p with medium to high settings without issues at 60+ fps.

Cons: Supersampling brings this card to a crawl in most titles.
If you're looking for Supersampling try SLI or a Titan.

Other Thoughts: Bought this as a temporary card but ended up keeping it for years. Very pleased with it.

5 out of 5 eggsStill Going

Pros: Long Lasting
Plays DMC Devil May Cry on highest setting, 90% of my Stream games on highest setting
Fairly Quet
Does not over-consume power

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I've had this since 2012 and here I am three years later, still runing 2/3 of my Steam games on the highest settings. Its not loud, its not a power-hog and is by far paid for itself ten times over. I could not be more impressed. This card has gone through two PC upgrades and has been hands down my most reliable piece of hardware.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great

Pros: Plays things like SMITE and TF2 just fine on the higher end of their graphics scale. I dont do too much hard gaming anymore, but anything I've purchased in the last three years this thing's been able to handle fairly well.

Cons: None that I can think of. I'm still occasionally finding bits of plastic cover that I forgot to take off.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Card while it lasted

Pros: This graphics card lasted me a good 5 years. I have to say, I had fun. Now I replaced it with a Asus GTX 660. My old GTX 550 ti card still works as a matter fact and is now being used on another PC build I made a year ago. With this card I used before at its time, I was able to Run battlefield 3 at 1920x1080 at low settings at about 50-60fps. was able to play far cry 3 at medium settings at 1920x1080 about 40-55fps. Those are a few examples of course but hey what can I say, it's not the most powerful card out there but it was a really good decent card at its time. Now new games are coming out and are starting to become demanding so it was time for me to upgrade. Not bad for this card to last me a good 5 years though. All I can say is hopefully for those who plan on getting themselves a gtx 750 ti will last them a good 5 years like this card did.

Cons: Only bad cons i can say about the card was this card's temperature. Gets pretty hot when in heavy gaming. Can get about 70 degrees C and above but not much of a big deal if you use the EVGA Precision X fan control options to keep the temperature steady.

Other Thoughts: Again, this card lasted me a good 5 years and it did well. For those who still have this card in your PC rig, would be a good idea to start replacing the GTX 550ti card with a better one soon if you plan on wanting to play games like Far cry 4, Dying light etc etc that are pretty demanding.

3 out of 5 eggsNo Sli connector included

Pros: bought 2 of these for a build in 2012, with the intention of SLI connecting the two cards. Turns out no SLI connectors were included. Okay no big deal a friend had an extra one. Since then the cards have been able to run most games smoothly without being overclocked, and I've had 2 monitors connected to just one of the cards most of the time, no problem.

Cons: One model higher, the 660 i think, supports nvidia shadowplay. as a gamer I wish I'd had knowledge of this when I bought my cards, because I would have gone with 1 model higher for this capability.
The cards 'failed' earlier this year but it turns out it was due to dust blocking the fan. They're already 2 years old so I'm satisfied that it took this long. dust is now cleaned and they work again.

Other Thoughts: If I were making a budget system I'd probably go with the next model up minimum just for shadowplay capability. Despite my rant, the cards are pretty good at what they do and they were inexpensive compared to alternatives at the time.

3 out of 5 eggs1 Out of 2 Ain't Bad?

Pros: When works, is a great graphics card. I've been running all games since 2012 quite flawlessly with this card and I have no complaints. The only games that give me any trouble have been 2013+, with that being minimal and still being very playable.

Cons: I bought a second one thinking I would dual SLI. I actually reviewed the motherboard for having a faulty second slot since when it was installed it would freeze whenever a video would run and give me the "display driver has stopped working but recovered" nonsense over and over again until it restarted my computer. Turns out it's actually the second card I bought. For some reason I never tried to run the second card by itself in the initial slot (I thought I had) and decided I would wait it out to buy another MoBo. It was the card all along!

Unfortunately the purchase was so long ago I do not think a replacement likely or possible.

Other Thoughts: Great card when it works, quite upsetting after owning it for 2+ years with nothing but good things to say about EVGA that it was the card all along that was faulty.

5 out of 5 eggsStands the test of time

Pros: Had it since the little quy came out and at first I always hated it cause no matter what I couldn't get past a certain fps so I dropped a 770 in the rig and no change realized I was bottle necking off my processor, this gpu seems like it was made to last its still being used and only got a few months off time till I put it back in the old rig and put the 770 in my one, have a friend getting a 750ti, hopefully they'll be alike

Cons: none, it survived in my old cork of a case

Other Thoughts: Hopefully the 750ti will be the same in the way it lasted

2 out of 5 eggsPOOp

Pros: Worked until it didn't.

Cons: I feel like Nvidia makes these to break down shortly after releasing new card series. Not buying Nvidia again.

5 out of 5 eggs3 years old and still running strong!

Pros: Just replaced my 550ti with a 750 gtx superclocked. Now I'm going to be using this 550 in my new budget build until I can replace it with something more newer & powerful.

All it's really been used to do is watch videos, game (LoL, SC, WoW, Crysis, D3...etc) and moderate Photoshop use. It's held up spectacularly over the years and I hope it continues to do so.

Cons: none.

Other Thoughts: The new 7 series, having no 6-pin connector is amazing. So I'd recommend the newer cards over the 5/6 series only for that reason.
