3 out of 5 eggsSomewhat Acceptable and Very Expensive

Pros: Able to run 4 displays (I run 3 at 1920x1080 each in DVI). Low profile and very low power consumption.

Cons: 512 MB memory is a bit subpar for today's standards. Only 16 Cuda cores and does not support DirectX 11. When given these specs, the card is VERY expensive. 3rd display lags quite a bit on occasion.

Other Thoughts: Although my main interest in this product was the low power consumption and 4-display support, I have seen that it was quite a trade off for acceptable performance. Windows 7 x64 rates it as 4.3 for Aero on windows experience index. But, of course it was not meant to be a 3D card in any way.

After testing various settings, I have determined it is not worth the price I paid for it. Newer and cheaper Multi-display Nvidia cards easily out-perform this card and the price for this dated card is still $500.

As others have said, this card does NOT support dual-link DVI so 1920x1200 is it's max resolution.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Easy to install, no power supply upgrade needed. Goes up quick. This works very well for what my office needs them for. It's a good card if you are looking for a quad display to do professional work on.

Cons: Can't really anything bad about this.

Other Thoughts: I would like to touch on one of the comments here. If you reference this card on the nVidia website, it promises that 2560x1600 is limited to Display Port Monitors ONLY.

Anyone who researches their products before they buy them would notice this, and not buy the card expecting those resolutions on DVI connections.

1 out of 5 eggsDOA

Pros: Very quick shipment from NewEgg as usual.

Cons: Nothing else to say except the PNY plastic container is poorly designed, and the backplane bracket had a serious bend in it. The outside of the PNY box had taken a blow to one corner, but wasn't responsible for the bent bracket. The NewEgg packing was fine, which means a NewEgg warehouse picker packed a video card box with a crushed corner.

The card itself looked fine with no apparent damage, but was definitely dead dead.

Other Thoughts: $69 restocking fee is out of line. Restocking fees should have a $ cap (say $15) because I think the cost of restocking a $10 item is the same as a $400 item.

3 out of 5 eggsGood card, not for 30" monitors

Pros: Good card capable of pushing ridiculous numbers of pixels. Worked flawlessly with Windows 7 and 4 1600x1200 monitors. Quickly sets up and remembers the identities of all monitors. Small form factor (though most 4-monitor systems, I can't think that would matter)

LOVE that it can flawlessly run 4 monitors with no messy dual-card priority issues.

Cons: Though the GPU is capable of pushing one 2560x1600 monitor per port (meaning 4 x 2560x1600) ... they put DVI-D single link connections.... effectively limiting the card to 1920x1200 per monitor. So those of you hoping to use this to push 30" monitors... look elsewhere.

The price is a little steep given the above con and the fact 2 dual-port dual-link cards would be way cheaper.

Other Thoughts: This card is sold (no longer at newegg though, so that's good) as a card that can push 4 x 2560x1600 monitors. It cannot.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Worked right out of the box with windows 7 x64. Didn't have to install any driver or software. That's Windows 7 for you folks. Able to open up multiple applications and dragging them accross mulitple screens with no glitches.

Cons: None at the moment.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 types of cards to test; both with the same spec. First was the Ati Firepro 2450 which had an issue. The mouse and the dragging of windows accross the muliple screens would be very slow. I've tried downloading the latest driver and even updating my Bios, no luck.
