Experienced minor issues. 12/12/2012
I like the extra room in my case compared to other cards which can easily touch the HDD drive cage.
EVGA support is second to none. I cannot emphasize enough the security of a lifetime limited warranty.
I cannot say anything bad about the performance.
1.) The card did not display on POST. It worked OK after Windows came up. I'm not sure if that's incompatibility with the BIOSTAR motherboard or not. I opened a few cases and did a lot of troubleshooting. I found a workaround but then the card eventually stopped displaying in Windows as well so I had to submit an RMA.
2.) I missed out on my rebate. It's really my fault I feel the nature of the promotions can be unforgiving. Like you have to pretty much mail out your stuff right when it arrives.
I'm going through the RMA process now and EVGA has good support with speedy response via their website. They offer cross-shipping if you cannot wait for the round-trip.
The main idea is that you buy one and then hopefully that same card comes down in price when you're thinking about upgrading to SLI. I don't see that happening.... maybe it's just too soon but I would like to see this priced a little lower with more newer technology available.
