EVGA GeForce GTX 460 (Fermi) DirectX 11 01G-P3-1371-TR 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: The card can run just about anything I've tried on it on max, and Skyrim on high.

Cons: It's been shutting on and off ever since installation.

I was going to return it, but it stopped doing it for three months back in August until it started doing it again in December.

Now it's doing it every day, this week it's done it more than 5 times. Shuts off like the power when out, but the other components of the computer still have power, and crashes the machine.

The power supply I got is fine, it's not the cause, because it still supplies power to everything else, and the card can turn on, it just shuts off whenever it wants.

Faulty Driver's isn't it either, I've flashed the card, and installed many drivers, none of them have permanently solved the problem.

Can't return it since it's been too long since I bought it, might as well trash it and get a 560Ti.

Other Thoughts: I really liked this card, it was the first video card I ever had and the experience of building a PC was great.

But it sourly disappointed me with it's constant failure and has caused me to lose online matches, even got banned for leaving two games in a row due to it crashing and needing a reboot.

At least my old laptop didn't crash on me when playing online, leaving my team with one player less.
