Out of two, one was bad from the start. 02/20/2013
Sturdy outside that's easy to worth with without touching sensitive parts. The one I have that's working works great.
I bought two of these for two machines I built for my two sons. One works great, but the other one gets glitchy and freaks out as well as heating up way hotter than the working one. I didn't send in any of the warranty stuff because I'm not on top of stuff like that. I didn't do anything at first because the games my boys were playing weren't freaking out that bad, just random black pixels flashing. The game he's playing now (WoW, not super graphics intensive), is unplayable after a few minutes due to glitchy graphics. All I have to do is swap the cards in the two identical machines and the problem follows the bad card, so I know it's the card but I'm sure I can't do anything now, and wouldn't want to make one boy wait while they replace it so I'm out $300. It's partially my fault for not doing the paperwork, but if their products were more solid, I wouldn't have to. I realize this could be a fluke but from my experience, they only get 1 egg for shipping a defective product.
I suppose you take a chance with anybody and every company will have bad cards from time to time. This time, I got burned by this card.
