Other Thoughts: I bought this card two years ago and after several months it stopped working. RMA it once still didn't work, wasted shipping fees!

5 out of 5 eggsGave bad review; completely WRONG!

Pros: I had the windows kernel errors, artifacts and the occasional blue screen - I reviewed this card negatively and the ECS support agent responded with contact information.
They determined that the card had a certain type of memory chips installed and as such could use a video BIOS upgrade.

Lets just say I am now able to successfully OC the card and my system with no problems...

Cons: None at this time - thought I had wasted $119!

Other Thoughts: Give ECS support a chance before you completely throw this off/away...

4 out of 5 eggsThey made good

Pros: Good card for the price now that the driver problems are resolved

Cons: it took a while to get my problem fixed, had to pay 18 bucks to ship the card in for fix.

Other Thoughts: I had sent in a poor rating for the manufacturer but they have now shown the proper support I had expected from the start and I will use their products again

3 out of 5 eggsStarting to have problems

Pros: Great price, HDMI Output.

Cons: Starting getting artifacts after a few weeks use. Driver constantly closes due to error and successfully recovers. Locks up after being on a while. I thought it might have been the RAM or the Power Supply or the Video Driver causing this. But, I have eliminated the RAM and the PS, and I am using the most updated drivers. I am using Windows 7 Premium 64bit.

Other Thoughts: Considering RMAing this to NewEgg while I still can.

Manufacturer Response:

Before RMAing, please do contact us.

We would like to help you with your issues and go over other possible causes. We would like to help resolve your issue without possible RMA.

3 out of 5 eggsGood card, now has problems

Pros: Great card for the money. Ran fine in Win XP x86, Win XP x64 and Win 7 fine. Even was able to load properly in open SUSE Linux 64 bit (cannot remember the exact version- 12 maybe?).

Cons: Everything was peachy for a while. I started getting strange artifacts and then I realized my PSU wasn't up to par (was a 500W and the card req 450W, noob mistake). As a result I replaced it with a 750W LSU model.
Worked great until recently when the artifacts came back twice as bad and in both, WINXP 32 bit and 64 bit - even WIN 7 started freezing.
JUST PAST THE 30 DAYS!
At

Other Thoughts: I would spend the extra $20-40 and make sure you get a card that doesn't have ANY issues. I am really not sure what to do with my new $100 fail card.

Manufacturer Response:

We do apologize for the artifacting issues you seem to be experiencing at this time.

If you haven't already we would like for you to contact us, so we can find out more about your configuration and help with any possible solution and alleviate any down time if RMA is needed.

1 out of 5 eggsUnhappy

Pros: Price

Cons: I am also getting the problem Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 197.45 stopped responding and I have logged a call and will update the status here

Other Thoughts: Also I bought 2 of these cards and they are both doing it - BUT none of the boxes have the cable for sli - my plan is to replace my motherboard and do sli with the cards - but how if they dont include the sli cable???!?!

Manufacturer Response:

If you still require assistance with display driver stopped responding issue or have yet to receive help from your previous case, please do get in touch with us using the contacts below.

We would like to help with this stability issue and look into your previous case and address any concerns if necessary.

An SLi ready motherboard should ship with an SLi bridge. This is to help take into account the spacing of the PCIe slots on the motherboard.

2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Inexpensive video card

Cons: The card did not want to easily seat into my case's expansion card slot.
I am receiving the same driver stopped responding messages from win7 64-bit. Oddly, it also appears to reset the desktop background also.

Other Thoughts: If I can get the driver to work properly in win7, this will be a pretty good investment.

Manufacturer Response:

Please do contact us as we would like to help resolve your stability issues with this video card and Windows 7.
