1 out of 5 eggsProne to crash

Pros: It runs quiet. I don't hear it and like most cards, it fits comfortably and this one was easy to instal. It's fans can get close to other hardware but that's an issue with any device if you don't have a spacious chassis (which I do, fortunately)

Cons: 1: It runs hot. The software it comes with lets you monitor its use, and even under casual use (compressing a video from FRAPS to MP4), it ran in excess of 70 centigrade.

2: It crashes. Twice daily for almost a year, the video card stop working. Sometimes it starts up again with a popup stating 'Nvidia drivers have stopped working and have successfully recovered', or the PC will just freeze up completely and one has to hard boot. The drivers are up to date.

Other Thoughts: For the money I was enticed by the specs of this device. Though after a month of operation I had wished I had purchased the 560, for $50 more.
I'm almost through with Nvidia for a while and might want to check out gigabyte or AMD.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for the price

Pros: Very good budget card, I got three to crunch seti work units on, and I'm very
pleased with the amount of work they get done in a short time. On a Linux
machine this card takes less than an hour on one type work unit where a 9800GT takes 4 1/2 to 5 hours.

Cons: Not any cons yet for this price. I wish it was a Titan, but I didn't want to pay the price.

Other Thoughts: With 4 compute units it blows away a 9800GT with 14 compute units. I haven't gamed with one yet but I'm pretty sure it would shame my 9800GT machine
on anything I play.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat gaming card

Pros: Great for running games on high or ultra high. Decent frame rate.

Cons: Many games wont run on ultra high or high at 1080p.

Other Thoughts: I have a friend that has a PNY 560 and it plays everything at ultra high, 1080p. Almost bought the refurb pny 560 from newegg instead. For $50 more I wish I did.

Still if you like gaming and want to save money this is your card.

4 out of 5 eggsNice

Pros: This card is worth every penny! Plays BF3 on ultra at around 30 fps without any overclocking. Very quite fan.

Cons: Wish the memory interface was a little higher

Other Thoughts: Over all if you wanna play the newest games and are on a budget this series is perfect

4 out of 5 eggsNot Bad

Pros: So its works, get about 40 frames per sec on fur mark. I have not over clocked, yet, but planning on it in the near future. Not a bad card over all for the price. And it compatible with AMD systems, i am running it now on mine. You get what u pay for.

Cons: The shipping was a pain in the -A-. I had to return the first card because it was defective. This one works good so far.
