Pros: First card that I've purchased so I was extremely, and I mean extremely, hesitant. I would read reviews for hours upon hours about graphics in this similar range.
Went from a stock ATI Radeon HD 5450 to this.
As quiet as old stock gpu. More quiet than stock gpu under stress.
5x or greater more powerful.
Fits in my stock midsize tower.
Other Thoughts: IMPORTANT:
I was looking around for this entire 3 or 4 weeks of ownership for a clue/fix to a sporadic horizontal line issue I was having. It would happen during movement in videos (Netflix, YouTube, etc.) and in games although less noticeable. And literally before typing this review I found the ridiculous simple fix. It is nothing to do with this card, any brand GTX 660 card, or any other gpu that you've upgraded to. It is WINDOW'S AERO MODE. Like most people before upgrading gpu, if you're picky you probably have turned on windows 7 basic or some minimal mode to maximize performance. Well, you need to turn that off and Aero on after installing the new graphics card! Window's for whatever reason doesn't like the compatibility of certain gpu's and its basic modes. Right click anywhere on your desktop background, select Personalize, and select any Aero theme you want. You can tweak the theme however you want (background change, sound fx, etc.) as long as it stays in Aero mode. This works for Window's Vista and 7 as far as I know. Spread the word!
Pros: Just as quiet as my stock 300 watt power supply, yet puts out all the power needed for my newer graphics card.
Other Thoughts: I record music from time to time and thankfully it is as quiet if not quieter than the stock psu.READ FULL REVIEW
