1 out of 5 eggs Not compatible with Windows 8.1 - useless 05/13/2014

This review is from: GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 650 GV-N650OC-2GI 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

Pros: Nice card
Plenty of memory

Cons: Not compatible with recent OS's

Other Thoughts: The card is not compatible with Windows 8.1 - useless – after 8 month of having 8.1 out in the market it doesn’t seem they will update the drive soon. According the Newegg the card “was” compatible with 8.1 but not according to GIGABYTE (website).

Just like Vista I wanted to wait until Microsoft created a product that was worth buying. But no – now I have a new system and I can’t buy Windows 7 student edition unless I pay the full retail price. What does that mean? I have to buy Windows 8.1 with does not work with this graphics card - Goodness.

Once i see the 8.1 driver i will run a benchmark and rewrite my review.
