2 out of 5 eggsGuess I got the Lemon

Pros: Easy to install

Cons: Periodically fritz's out with streaks across the screen.
Periodically goes black for a few seconds.
Only a reboot will fix either of these problems when it acts up.
Also, the fan bearings are noisy.

Other Thoughts: This is a new build computer with all new drivers. Win 7 64bit. The fan bearings are rebuildable, but even with fresh oil they make an annoyingly loud ticking sound.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect!

Pros: Easy install, comes sli ready, heat sink/ fan work well together more so if there is plenty air flowing through case, I bought two of these and sli'd them and I haven't found a game that i can't play on atleast high settings, nVidia has a nice easy driver to update to.

Cons: ... I guess it could use just a little larger fan on it ... other than that I just don't know what else I don't like about it ...

Other Thoughts: I built a PC from scratch using NEWEGG to order the parts. I had one of these in for a while and could run Skyrim on it's highest settings. That made me happy. Thanks NEWEGG! You helped get me hooked on building PC's!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat

Pros: Have to say, after looking over the card itself i was a little overwhelmed. The Card is rather big (Considering i upgraded from a 9500 GT) and it barely fits in my Antec 300 Case, but not a reason to take a egg off. The card runs great, able to play Fable 3 on All High/Ultra, Skyrim, DayZ is just phenomenal. I would for sure tell anyone to get this card, not only for the price, but for how great it runs.

Cons: None i Can think of

Other Thoughts: Well when i looked at the Specs online, it said it came with a Blue Vid Port, White Vid Port, and a regular HDMI Port, and Looked Orange.

But when i recieved teh card, It came with two white Vid Ports and a mini-hdmi port. Yes it came with an adapter for a White-to-Blue port, and a Mini HDMI-to-Regular HDMI port, but was a little worried i got sent the wrong card.

Also the color wasnt exactly the same as in the picture, but none of this is a reason to take an egg off. Just me being nit picky

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for any price!

Pros: Works great. No problems playing any game i tried on ultra graphics or near ultra graphics. Really easy way to improve PC gaming experience.

Cons: Fan gets loud at times.

Other Thoughts: Nice bonus that it included a free copy (steam code) of Duke Nukem Forever

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, great Direct X 11 graphics. Surprisingly quiet.

Cons: Price. It's still just a little too high for me. I would have felt much better about this purchase had it been under $100.

Other Thoughts: This is a great card, just a tad more expensive than I care to pay for a card this old, but it's still a great purchase.

5 out of 5 eggsgreat video card for the $$$

Pros: I have a Dell XPS 720 with an outdated quad core q6600, 5gb ram, and this card. I upgraded from a 6670 and the difference in games like skyrim, the darkness 2, and borderlands 2 was quite amazing even with it running in a PCI-e 1.0 slot, can run everything on high to ultra, looks better then my Xbox.

Cons: its kinda huge, I've heard the fan twice through the thick XPS case but its not bad enough to take an egg off.

Other Thoughts: if you can pick this up for 100 shipped get it! biggest upgrade I've seen on my Xps, can only imagine how much better it'll be on my new setup.

5 out of 5 eggsHigh quality, low price = value

Pros: Built solid, lifetime warranty, plenty fast. Installed with no problems, replacing a Radeon setup. Came with a Molex adaptor in case your power supply doesn't have a six-pin connector. Packaging was bullet-proof. Wish all companies would do likewise.

Cons: Drivers on the included CD were quite old, but they got it up and running and I had no problems downloading the latest versions from nVidia's website.

Other Thoughts: Bought from another vendor for $115 and free shipping. Was going to buy the newly released GTX 650 until I found out it cost more and was slower. Newer is not always better.

Not a heavy gamer, so I have no useful numbers. I was impressed with the overall quality of PNY's card.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat mid range graphics card!!

Pros: Great card & capabilities for an affordable price!! I have been using NviDia since 2006 & they never cease to impress me :) I hear/see some people complaining about PNY cards but I have never had an issue with PNY. I now own 3 of them, all running strong. Food for thought for those having issues.. You need adequate case ventialtion when running these higher end cards. They really heat things up inside the tower!!
I'm going to get another one of these & set up SLI with these little bad boys when I get my new rig for sure!!

Cons: None!! As usual NviDia exceeds!!!

5 out of 5 eggsgo sli with these

Pros: Get two of these and run an SLI setup. With an i5 2500k and 8gb 1600mhz ram, i get a nearly constant frame rate of 60fps with v sync on to prevent screen tearing with games like bf3 and skyrim with the hd texture packs with the settings cranked to ultra excluding antialiasing and anisotropic filtering, resolution set to 1080. If you're building a budget gaming rig its hard to beat that for $200.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsGood and Cheap

Pros: Good card and runs Battlefield 3 and Counter Strike GO at over 100FPS but my computer also helps with that.

Cons: Not an awesome card, but I could have spent more money if I wanted a top of the line one.
