Pros: I am now using the card! World of Tanks gets between 35 to 45 fps on HIGH settings! Its breath taking compared to my old factory stock one. I give this card 5 eggs not because i think its the best card ever, that would be foolish, theres much better cards, but for much more money. This is the best card you can get for this price (unless you can find a 650 Ti for the same price) Super for entry level gaming and there is a noticeable difference even with the graphics in my home screen. I can also now play strategy games that my computer previously couldn't. all in all, a great card that i would recommend
Cons: a few extra FPS would be nice, But hey, it was $120, 35 to 50 fps in World of Tanks is great for that money.
Other Thoughts: Im not sure if its my new PSU or this card thats a tad to loud...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I have a Dell Optiplex 960 and there were problems installing it. The place where the plug goes into the power source sticks out a bit and since i had to put my power source in (seeimngly) upside down, The protruding plug input wouldnt let the PSU get right up against the cage and so i couldnt get the screws back in. I ended up getting a pair of plyers and bending the back of the metal frame around the input and it fits just fine now. I like how the sleeves are in mesh, Makes it look better, However since its hard mesh, The cables are harder to work with. Example: since the cord are "extra long" on this model, the SATA connectors have more wire than they need between each other and it is hard to tuck the unneeded wire any where because the hard mesh wants to hold it straight. Any ways, i got it figured out and powered up. It looks good too.
Cons: It seems a tad loud, but no so much that its really a huge annoyance. The wire mesh can be a bit of bugger.
Other Thoughts: If you have a Dell like i do, Maybe consider getting a specialized Dell PSU that will fit in your brackets and clips.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I havent actually seen it used yet since i forgot to buy the DVI From VGA cable converter to go to my monitor, But i'm getting that today. All i know so far is that It looks and feels solidly built, Defintely made to last. I dont know if it says this on the website or not, But on the box it says its got a lifetime warranty. Its a good looking card too. I bought it for games like World of Tanks and Napoleon: Total War. Hopefully it will run skyrim on medium settings as well. I will rate again later when i find out how it performs.
Cons: Not to sure yet. I really hoped to get the Sparkle 650 Ti but it is discontinued. If you can get a 650 Ti over this, It would be a good decision, More CUDA cores = more power and better results. But, If you cant get the Ti, This is definitely a good card too. And i did turn it on and im not sure if it is the new power source or the new Card, but one of them (or both) are kind of louder. (not monstrously though, Its just noticeable is all. And when you have speakers on with games or music it should be fine.
