4 out of 5 eggsUpdate RMA

Pros: See other thoughts.

Cons: See other thoughts.

Other Thoughts: US Support does exist, I can verify it. I called today and they provided information for my RMA. Still been over 1 month and they said another 2 weeks to go (waiting for a shipment of cards to arrive). Still not as smooth as the first go around, but at least they actually exist!! Just in case anyone needs it:

3 out of 5 eggsRMA is horrible

Pros: Great card when working.

Cons: RMA is horrible. I have RMA'd with Sparkle twice (this same video card). First time: fragmenting and no video output after restart. RMA went smooth, mailed it out, 2 weeks later refurbished replacement arrived. No communication from the company, does not respond to emails. That's ok, got my card quick.

Second time: second (refurbished) card, same thing. Started fragmenting and no video output after restart (have to shut down for 20 mins in order to work). I RMA, it's been over 1 months since the delivery of the card to them and NOTHING!!! Their RMA website (which they changed since last time) simply doesn't work. It sends you to a 404 forbidden site. They haven't responded to emails.... again NOTHING!!!

Never again with Sparkle. Dealing with this company simply isn't worth the initial purchase savings. I hope you don't have to RMA anything from them, if you do, you've been warned.

5 out of 5 eggsworks beautiful

Pros: 7.9 of 7.9 Windows Experience Index.
hard to believe my processor is the slowest rating in the Index with a 7.8

Cons: Was expensive when I bought it.

Other Thoughts: Its more than $200 less than when I bought it when the 580 first came out.

5 out of 5 eggsNice Solid Card. Great Performer

Pros: Slightly faster than a standard clocked GTX 480. Doesn't overheat like some of the other 480/580 GTX cards.

Cons: In Ubuntu or Fedora Linux, the fan speed can only be adjusted to 85 %, and no higher. But that's really no big deal.

1 out of 5 eggsCustomer Support non-existent

Pros: no pros, don't buy.

their website is horrible too.

Cons: No tech support. They do not answer emails. The "Sparkle Customer Support" person who posted the phone number of Sparkle on the Newegg website doesn't even work. The phone number dials up a power supply company.

Card runs really hot while not overclocking.

Other Thoughts: DO NOT BUY. You will not be able to register this product for a warranty.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat card ok cooling

Pros: Outstanding performance. super fast run most games on max settings with no lag what so ever, got dead space 2 on max settings running great.

Cons: Runs hot compared to other cards around the same price, about 80c.

Other Thoughts: Im glad i went with the 580 but i wish i would have gone with a different 580 with better cooling, now i gotta spend 50 bucks on an after market cooler. that the only reason i gave it a 4 instead of a 5.

2 out of 5 eggsNot sure how I feel...

Pros: The card is fast, when it works. I bought two of these for SLI and they worked quite well in that configuration. For about a month. One card just decided to die and so far the other one is alright.

Cons: I called and emailed Sparkle's technical support and have yet to see how the RMA process goes fully. They didn't answer their Tech support number during their slated business hours and I have sent an email in to their support but have yet to hear back.

Other Thoughts: I thought the card was a solid card. I don't know how I feel about it anymore. I was afraid to go with a competing product because it was overclocked out of the box, now I may have made a mistake. Overall, you get what you pay for and this is definitely one of those cases where you don't want to skimp on the 20 bucks.

1 out of 5 eggsDon't buy Sparkle

Pros: Low price, but in the end not worth the horrible service, spend a few more dollars and get a quality product.

Cons: Card died about a month after I got it, Sparkle's eRMA process is a joke, they've had my card for days and the status won't update, and there is no way I can contact them to find out if everything is ok because they don't have a customer service deparment, they just have an e-mail tech support that won't answer, $500 down the drain.

Other Thoughts: Stay away from Sparkle, they won't back their products up, if I would have known that I wouldn't have spent $500 on them.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing video card

Pros: High performance, quiet, and the clock down feature is great at extending the card's life. Cant wait to upgrade my computer and get 2 more of these monsters for a sli.

Cons: Runs hot, too hot under load. I had to download msi afterburner and set the fan speed manually for it to run cooler.

Other Thoughts: Worth the money
