3 out of 5 eggsHOT???

Pros: Love the price and technology.

Cons: I think its too hot (temp) for me

Other Thoughts: Did not buy it, but would love to. It would sit next to my PCI-X x4 3ware disk controller card with BBU. I would be concerned about the heat. Could remote the BBU, but then I lose a PCI slot.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked great on a build for a customer that needed four monitors, for stock trading.

Cons: None. Be sure to go to Nvidia and get latest drivers, ships with older version.

5 out of 5 eggsSimply the best..

Pros: A 4 monitor solution for a computer only has one x16 lane PCI express slot.. If you are putting this card in a Gateway E-6500D, you will need to update your BIOS.. After updating, windows will see the card and ask for drivers.. You can download the BIOS update for free and is very easy to do..

This is the future of computing.. With more monitors I can do more on the same computer.. Helps in my line of work..

Cons: I wish it had a fan just for piece of mind.. It does it jobs and keeps cool with a heat sink but I like fans especially on expensive parts.. Price needs to be in the $300 range..

Other Thoughts: Could use a little more ram.. 512mb would do just great..

5 out of 5 eggsmost detailed monitor of all

Pros: This is the first grafcard I have found (except for one costing $3000) that runs the legendary IBM T221 at its full resolution (3840x2400, that's not a misprint) AND full maximum refresh (only 41 hz, but oh that resolution). It's an $18,000 monitor, and worth every penny.

Cons: The guys who wrote the user interface for the nVidia software are morons. Lots of trial and error, and before you try all the other hassles, be sure to find (it's hidden) and turn on the "Multiview" box. Read the three manuals that are hidden on the CD, also.

Other Thoughts: Be sure you get the pciE X-16 version of this card, not the cheaper X-1. And you have to buy, separately, two Y-cables that go from the two 59-pin females on the card to the four DVI cables that come from the T221. I got them free, but they might cost about $25 each.

5 out of 5 eggsIndispensible

Pros: Indispensible card for the trader. Fairly easy setup and works great with Tradestation using multi-monitors. Huge heatsink which eliminates the need for a noisy fan.

Cons: You're cheating yourself if you're trading without one. The DMS-59 pin connection is kind of a pain . . get the right splitter/adapters for DVI.

Other Thoughts: I own two of these running six Samsung 19" monitors on two computers. I had a NVS 400 PCI that ran four monitors but it had only 64MB . . the 256MB makes a big performance difference not to mention the PCIe x 16 difference.

Pros: To the previous reviewer, a KVM switch is used for controlling multiple computers from a single monitor/keyboard/mouse. This video card is useful for having multiple monitors on a single computer. Big difference.

Cons: none

4 out of 5 eggsGood card

Pros: Only uses 1PCIx16 slot for 4 monitors. You would think 4 monitors would be enough, but for trading, 8 monitors would be even better so using one of these in each PCIx16 slot (if you have 2 of them) makes an 8 monitor setup possible. You can see from the picture the whole card is covered with a massive heatsink which is a great feature.

Cons: Overall I'm happy with the card but my one disappointment is that it even though it plays most videos well, it seems to have a glitch trying to play DVDs using WinDVD or Nero's DVD player. I checked WinDVD's website and they list all chipsets their player is compatible with and this chipset is not listed as one that's supported so maybe that's the problem. I can play VOB files using VLC player so there's a somewhat awkward but functional workaround.

Other Thoughts: As another reviewer mentioned, this card is great for trading applications like stocks and currencies, and it's certified to run with Tradestation.

While the heat sink is massive, it does get hot to the touch so I added a fan inside my case just to blow right on the heatsink of this card. I had no video problems without the fan but in general the cooler your PC components run, the longer they will last so that's why I added the fan.
I ran a 3-d benchmark test and it passed many of the tests well but not all of them, so it's not the ideal gaming card but good enough to play some non-cutting edge games.

5 out of 5 eggsThe best need the best

Pros: In fast moving trading markets many times video cards with too little ram will overload the PC main processor and temporarily lock the the system up. not good. This card takes a huge load off the PC main processor. As always..you gotta also have the best motherboard and chipset along with the fastest processor..to avoid the weakest link in the chain syndrome sysndrome.

Cons: None

5 out of 5 eggsDual GPU'S, Dual RamDacs

Pros: I just wanted to add to my previous review that this card has 2 GPU's and 2 RamDac's. This makes it much better to run 4 monitors at the same time.

Cons: A little pricey, but this shouldn't be much of an issue for professional business, financial and graphics applications.
