Pros: Solid, reliable product. Packaged well and works as advertised.
Other Thoughts: Have these in both my daughter's and my own rigs and they work flawlessly. I like G.Skill products and would recommend to anyone.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: EVGA has been my manufacturer of choice for many years and this card does not disappoint. Was a noticeable upgrade from my GTX 650Ti. The ACX Cooler is a nice addition and runs quiet and well, cool ;-)
Just keep in mind the size of this card and make sure it will fit your case. I have a large Cooler Master HAF so it is no problem. Also, pay attention to the power requirements. I had an eight and six plug free so it was not a problem either, but perhaps your power supply does not. As with most things, the details matter ;-)
Other Thoughts: EVGA does a great job with their Video cards. The packaging is always first rate and New Egg does their part in getting my purchases to me quickly. This is a pretty capable mid-range card that will keep you gaming for quite some time.
All I had to do was plug it in, Windows got the drivers and I was back in business in short order.
Pros: Bought this for an upgrade to my daughter's Acer AN3470G-UW10P PC. That had integrated graphics and was fine for what it was, but she likes to game a bit and had to play at lower settings. This card was an excellent upgrade.
The motherboard had a PCIe slot and this card fit perfectly. We plugged it in and her Windows 7 downloaded the needed drivers. She was up and running in short order.
She can now turn her graphics settings to max on the games she plays and is very happy. This should extend the life of her machine by a year or more.
Other Thoughts: The big selling points for me was that this comes with an HDMI output and has a cooling fan plus heat sink. Most other cards in this category go with just a heat sink and many do not have HDMI.
Please keep in mind this card is not like buying one of the high end graphics cards and/or building a new PC - but it is a large upgrade over the integrated graphics most PCs in this class come with. It is a fairly inexpensive upgrade for those store bought PCs.
One other thing to consider if you have a PC like that - upgrade the RAM. Her machine came with 4 Gigs. I replaced those with 8Gigs and her machine loads everything so much faster. She practically has a new PC for around $150.
