Pros: Very satisfied so far, easy install, quiet running. Replaced GT220 with this and jumped from 20-35FPS to steady 60 FPS at 1280 and 1920 in my favorite on line flying game. Nice upgrade for my level system (i7, W7/64, PCIe x 16 2.0, 450W PS, purchased in 2010). After researching it seemed anything more than this would not show appreciable difference based on my level PC considering a number of factors, limiting factor seems to be the 2.0 PCIe bus so I think a GT 660 and up would probably be overkill? My 450W PS had a 6 pin power plug which is all this unit needed, bigger cards generally need more than 450Ws and possibly more plugs and I didn't want to go there if I didn't have to. Although this is a PCIe 3.0 bus unit it is backward compatible to PCIe 2.0. This was a nice size unit at around 7+" instead of around 9+" for a GT660. Kepler architecture and adaptive vertical sync. are nice features. If you are still looking for more performance and have a 2.0 bus I think it is possible to get more out of a 2.0 bus with a higher end card but there may be other limiting factors, I would try to get an expert opinion on just how much more performance and at what cost. In general pages seem to load faster, color is good, easy adjustments. Downloaded current driver from NVIDEA before I installed hardware, installation was smooth. Get a mini HDMI cable ready ahead of time as this is the output HDMI connection used.
