EVGA 012-P3-1578-AR GeForce GTX 570 (Fermi) Classified 1280MB 320-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Great price on the last "tier" of cards, and a solid performer. I upgraded from an EVGA GTX 275 and the difference is huge. Currently playing SWTOR, GW2 and WoW at high/ultra high settings and seeing 60+ FPS in each. Processor is a Q9550 @ 3.4ghz.

It is fairly quiet and doesn't run hot.

The HDMI output is very nice.

Cons: Having an issue with the graphics driver crashing now and then while watching Youtube videos. Does not crash in games though.

No high-flow bracket for the Classified model.

Other Thoughts: I picked up the GTX 570 aluminum backplate for it as well. Looks very nice all together.

USE THE FAN SPEED TUNER. On the stock settings mine would not spin the fan up fast enough to effectively cool the card. I could feel the heat coming off of the back of the case with my foot near it. Adjusting the fan auto-speed fixed this and now it stays at a reasonable temperature through hours of gaming.

I see now that this model is discontinued. Understandable, especially with the "special" editions (OC, Superclocked, Classified). Still, if you can find one and are on a budget (read: cannot swing a GTX 680) this is a very good card.
