Great performance for the $$ 06/28/2013
Great GPU. Plenty quick for pretty much every game I play.
Bought nVidia specifically for 3D support on my Sammy 7 series active 3D set, pretty angry that they actually charge to unlock the feature in their drivers. My G53 laptop's drivers have it unlocked for free so I didn't expect it to cost extra. That's pretty deceptive. And the cost, $40, is like a kick in the nuts for buying their product.
So I'm not using the 3D feature, while money is not the issue, I just won't buy it out of principle, I even would have paid extra for the GPU knowing that it had 3D support, but I'm not going to pay for a key and deal with their SecuRom-like process. That was my main buying decision over AMD, and I may not buy nVidia next time because of this. I'll just have to keep using my laptop whenever I want to watch something in 3D.
Still otherwise a great product.
Runs everything I've thrown at it pretty smooth in 1080P with AA, graphics quality is stunning compared to the 460m I've been using for the past few years.
