MSI GeForce GTX 660 Ti DirectX 11 N660TI-2GD5/OC 2GB 192-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

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 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.

SAPPHIRE Radeon HD 4890 DirectX 10.1 100269HDMI 1GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

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 port
