Pros: While it worked, the card performed very well and is reasonably priced.
Cons: There is a widespread error where the screen goes black and an error message pops up saying "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered..." Looking into fixes I find people with this problem dating back to mid 2012, and currently there seems to be no solution. Rolling back to old drivers doesn't fix the issue. I tried multiple versions dating back to August of 2012. My PSU is plenty powerful (750W), I've monitored GPU temperatures and it will still error even at low temps (~30C).
Nvidia posted this on their support forums https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/389688/geforce-drivers/nvidia-statement-on-tdr-errors-display-driver-nvlddmkm-stopped-/ essentially saying "it's window's fault and it could be caused by anything" i.e. you're out of luck. There are lots of proposed fixes, up to and including a full reinstall of Windows, but plenty of people still have the issue.
I'm going to keep looking for a solution. I'll post it if I find something that works, but if I can't find one then I'll have to RMA the card.
Other Thoughts: Card worked perfectly for several days then this error started.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very good price for the power
Cons: -Large, just make sure you have room in your case and it shouldn't be an issue.
-HDMI port does not display properly. It doesn't fill all the pixels on the screen, leaving a black border all around as well as slight changes in color. This has been an issue I have seen happening with other people, and I have spent the past week trying to hunt down a solution. No one seems to have one yet. It seems like it is only an issue when you are running Windows 7 64 bit, but this is not confirmed.
Other Thoughts: Beware if you are planning on running a monitor/television through the hdmi portREAD FULL REVIEW
