Not good

SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card SXX4701280D5-NM
SPARKLE GeForce GTX 470 (Fermi) 1280MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card SXX4701280D5-NM

Pros: when it worked it was great.

Cons: After 14 months of using the card it started dying. Boot ups resulted in picture distortion and lock ups with this card in my system. Upon receiving rma sent out card for replacement they received it and shipped a remanufactured GTX580 as a replacement. Other Thoughts: dont count on getting equipment replaced by these guys if the product fails.

Overall Review: The GTX580 states it only has a 90 day warranty so I guess I lost the other year and half still left on the GTX470 warranty. The GTX580 has developed problems after 2 months and I had to disable it today. The GTX580 came with on manual, no driver or any thing else

Replacemt for dead GTX470

SPARKLE Calibre Series GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 1536MB GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 SLI Support Video Card X580

Pros: Worked good for about 2 months.

Cons: This was a remanufactured replacement for a dead GTX470. The GTX580 states it only has a 90 day warranty so I guess I lost the other year and half still left on the GTX470 warranty. The GTX580 has developed problems after 2 months and I had to disable it today. The GTX580 came with on manual, no driver or any thing else. Needless to say I am not to please with the Sparkle cards. They die to soon.

Overall Review: If you buy a card with a 3 year warranty then any replacement should continue to carry the time left on original card. They have no cross shipment so you are out of service until you receive a replacement.
