5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: 1) Powerful enough to handle my needs (aka WoW@60+ fps on Ultra)
2) Not to bad of a price
3) Stays Relatively cool

Cons: Not a 580... lol

Other Thoughts: I was looking for a cheap card to play a few games on till I had enough money to drop on a new build. It handles all of them nicely with great fps. Only possible issue you may run into is its HUGE. I had to move around my HDs to accommodate it. Its kinda sandwiched between them. My case is a Antec 300 so you can get a figure of the size of it. Probably close to a foot long. Also the pic Newegg has and the description contradict themselves. It needs 2 6 pin power connectors. Don't be fooled by the picture.

2 out of 5 eggsWas nice while it lasted...

Pros: Ran everything I had no problem on it's highest settings with triple monitors including Fallout 3, Fallout New Vegas, Assassins Creed II, Sim City 4, Grand Theft Auto San Andreas, and Left 4 Dead 2. Remember that's with the games spread across THREE screens (3840x1024)

Cons: Died after 120days exactly, while the warranty is only 90days. After buying this exact card for a friend to upgrade his computer and it dieing on him after a couple of months and now me buying the same card and it dieing after a couple months I think I'm going to stay away from PNY...

Other Thoughts: These cards were never overclocked, at times they were actually underclocked to reduce heat (even though that wasn't a problem, maxed at 75c under stress testing), power supplies were checked before being hooked up to make sure their was enough power, yet they still died, my friends card died rather suddenly, turned on his computer one day and it wouldn't POST with the video card, mine started randomly crashing, used OCCT to test the video card and that crashed the entire computer, when reset their were artifacts all over the screens, I took it out of the computer and let it rest for a day then put it back in and nothing, same as with my friends computer couldn't POST with the video card installed. My friend however was lucky as he bought the card new and was still under warranty, me however, I'm short on money so I bought this refurbished one with only a three month warranty. But over all you buy cheap you get cheap.

5 out of 5 eggsSo Far So Good!

Pros: Runs cool in Antec p180 case, about 48c at idle. The hottest I have seen is low to mid 50's, but I'm not a gamer, I do video editing and heat hasn't been a issue for me so far...

Cons: If I had to come up with a con it would be size, but all cards of this caliber and up are big...

Other Thoughts: Bought a 2 year warranty for $17 that I probably won't use.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Amazing card for the price. Can't go wrong with a GTX+ version. Upgraded from a 8800gt so the performance boosts is amazing.

Cons: Stopped working after 4 or so months. Thankfully I bought an extended warranty from myserviceplan and they reimbursed me the full value.

Other Thoughts: It's risky buying a recertified card and a 90 day manufacture warranty may not be enough.

3 out of 5 eggsI got a dud

Pros: Worked great. Had it in SLI with an evga 9800gtx+. Very capable card (despite being released in like 2008).

Cons: It idles at 64°C and when I play games it runs up to 100° and throttles back, murdering my framerate. Will try get a replacement because I do like the performance of the other card (and they're really cheap)

Other Thoughts: Its a great card. 5 for being good. I got a bad one with an overheating issue. -2 for that

4 out of 5 eggsVery capable card!

Pros: This card is quite powerful and is definitely able to play the games currently out. I believe it is equal to the GTS250 performance wise. Newegg is as usual great with shipping, picked overnight and I got it the next day. The unit only has 1 PCIE connector for power, not 2, as the details say.

Cons: It runs somewhat hot at about 84*C full load on furmark, but I am pretty sure these GPUs can take upwards of 100* C. I've ordered a vga cooler from newegg so hopefully I can take those temps down.

Other Thoughts: This great deal won't last forever, grab it while you can! I'm sure glad I did!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat GPU at a great price!

Pros: -The price is very cheap. Buy it while you can!
-This gets good FPS. Easily can get over 60 fps. Anything over 60 fps doesn't really make a difference.
-So far it ran everything I threw at it flawlessly.
-Pretty cool for a NVIDIA card. At auto fan speed: 47 Idle and 68 Load. At 100% fan speed: 41 Idle and 65 Load.
-Fast delivery. Got here in two days. (bought 3 day shipping)
-Can run SLI (1 card is enough for me though)
-Compared to most modern graphics cards, this card is pretty small. Dimensions: 9 inches long and 1.3 inches thick.
-Has a pretty good heat sink. Pretty thick aluminum fins with copper heat pipes.
-Fan is silent on the automatic settings. On 100% it gets loud (all fans are loud on 100%)
-The design is pretty attractive :)

Cons: -Takes up two slots
-The cooler exhausts the hot air into the case.
-Requires a pretty high amount of watts. (450 watts is suggested)

Other Thoughts: -Do not use the drivers on the CD. Go to NVIDIA's web page and use the newest drivers.
-My case is super tight, so you're temperatures may be lower.
-Did not come with a DVI to VGA adapter.
-I'm not sure how this overclocks. I never overclock anything. No real need to overclock this card :)
-Got a 5.9 in both graphics category's. (Windows Experience Index... Vista)
-There is only one 6 pin connector. The details are wrong.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing card

Pros: Great card, runs cool in my tight Dell case. Maxed out MW2, BFBC2, and everything else I tried. No problems.

Cons: None. Well, i couldn't get a steady overclock. But there really is no need to overclock this one.

Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a beast of a card under 100$, this is the one to get. You won't regret it.
