1 out of 5 eggsStay away from Galaxy products

Pros: decent price at the time of purchase

Cons: 1. poor quality.
2. makes high pitch noise under load
3. ZERO support from the company.
4. did i mention 0 support

Other Thoughts: I tried to file RMA with the company back in Dec. and received instructions in an email. I tried to follow up with it as soon as I got it, but the support website was unavailable at that time. I also work in IT and I understand it happens, so I figured I would try it again later. But what I don’t understand is after a half dozen attempts and 8 months later, I am still having trouble accessing the support website

Every time I tried to access it, I go this message. In fact, about half of the links that I tried on your support page resulted in this error message.

[User Error]: Unable to connect to Database. Please verify the username, password, grant permissions and the database status. (library/class.SWIFT.php:641)

I also tried to call the “24/7 support” and could never talk to anything. The only thing I could get is a prerecorded message telling me that the voice mail is full.

4 out of 5 eggsDecent Product With Some Flaws

Pros: This card is a lot more powerful than it might be given credit for, especially for a two year-old card. I get awesome framerates, fast HD video publishing, and DirectX 11, what more could you want? It's a heck of a lot better than my cruddy 9500GT that I paid $100 for 1/2-2 years ago. While playing Transformers: War for Cybertron with the frame rate unlocker, I can get up to a maximum of 75 fps with everything set to high, unlike, my 9500GT, which would only rarely max out at 24 fps! This card is also a lot more stable than the 9500GT. Oh, and it looks epic!

Cons: This card has one major flaw that I really should mention though... It produces a lot of heat, sometimes maxing out at near 90 degrees celsius! I even have an additional fan underneath the card and the thing still gets very hot. Even before I overclocked it (do your research before doing so, as this is not in the instruction manual), it got very hot.

Other Thoughts: Overall, it's a decent card I got on sale for $90 that has great performance but overheats. I would also assume that for a company that boasts about their "award winning" cards, that they would at least think to put a better cooling solution on it. If you are thinking about buying this card at $150.00, I would highly recommend buying a younger card like the GTX 550ti, which I've seen go on Newegg for $20 less than this.

Pros: It does what it is supposed to do, and has been doing it well for the past year+.

5 out of 5 eggsBest price/performance ratio of any card I have ever owned.

Pros: -High overclocking headroom
-Removable Fan/easy to clean

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: This card can easily be overclocked to the 900mhz range with galaxy's xtreme tuner software. I am currently at 900mhz GPU, 1802mhz shaders, 1881mhz memory frequency. Well over stock and stable.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!!!

4 out of 5 eggsI like it

Pros: It plays all the games that I like at max settings or near max. COD 3 almost max, NFS the Run maxed out, NBA2k11 maxed out, Tropico 4 maxed out. Plays all my Bluray with no problems. For the price and the power usage I think it would be hard to find a better deal.

Cons: Its a little noisy but I cant hear it anymore.

5 out of 5 eggs3DMark06: 15080. WEI: 7.2

Pros: Easy to install. Simply downloaded latest drivers from NVidia. Works perfectly with my OC'd Q6600 @3.3 GHz and my GA-P45T-ES3G Motherboard. Upgraded from an 8600GTS/256MB DDR3 video card and saw WEI go from 6.2 to 7.2 and 3DMark06 go from 6840 to 15080.

For $60 after rebate? Amazing.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: My system config is as follows:
Gigabyte GA-P45T-ES3G Motherboard Rev 1.3
Intel Q6600 Rev G0 C2Q CPU @ 3.3 GHz (9x367)
16GB Corsair Vengence 1.5V DDR3 1600 RAM
Kingston 128GB SSD
Windows 7 Pro x64

4 out of 5 eggsrebate

Pros: card works as expected purchased as an upgrade replacing older 8800gt in sons computer. Runs WOW and MW3, black ops etc Perfectly little to no video lag.
Rating for card not rebate problem below in other thoughts that gets a half a star

Cons: card was a bit bulky barely fit onto a lanparty NF590 SLI mobo. small heat sink was in the way.

Other Thoughts: The rebate form does not have this card listed as a qualifying card for rebate but here on the newegg site it states 40 Dollar mail in rebate?? I just sent a letter to newegg under their contact info as their customer support department is closed. this was really the only reason for me buying this card as I am on a budget and 60 bucks is not to shabby for a video card that can run newer games

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic card for the price

Pros: Runs almost all new games at 1080 with medium-high or high settings, and all older games (1 year or older) completely maxed with no issues.

Can play Rage in 1080 with medium high settings and still get 30+ fps.
Can play BF3 in 1080 with medium settings and get 30fps
Detachable fan
Looks sexy
SLI ready
100 bucks, or 60 bucks with mail in rebate!!

Cons: A little bulky
Runs pretty hot in my case. When playing Deus Ex in 1080 and medium-high settings, it will jump to 70-80C with the fan at 20%. If I kick the fan up to 40-50% the temp will drop back to 50-55c.

Other Thoughts: Other than it being a bit bulky and running hot, this was a fantastic purchase. Sure, it's not a GTX 580, but for the price, you get a whopper of a card that can play any brand new games with 1080 resolution and at least medium settings and still pull 30+ fps.

I'm glad I got this card as it was probably the best choice to make for the price. I mean seriously, 60 bucks after rebate?! Wow! Even with a low pricetag, you're not getting a pile of junk, as this card can kick some decent tail and keep up with most cards.
