This review is from: NVIDIA $75 value in-game coin coupon
Cons: i went on the site and put in the code, it said my code has been used, what a joke.
Other Thoughts: got this for free as I brought my graphic card, and I saw people were selling them on e-- bay. My guess is that there're certain quota of the same code were given for register at a time, and when that quota was reached, anyone who register after that will get the error message. And the people on the e-- bay were probably selling the same code as mine, that's why my code didn't work as the quota has been reached.
Well, I didn't even bother trying to gettit back, as It's free anyway.
Pros: Good mid-high end card for the price. Quiet. Able to run games on the PS2 emulator at 1080p at full speed, as well as psp and nds emulators.
Cons: Limited CUDA video transcoding speed, even though the whole process is going to be bottleneck by the cpu anyway, still I'm expecting for a better result. So far as in the video transcoding field, Intel's Quick Sync technology is leagues ahead in term of speed.
For playing games like Starcraft 2 at 1080, the frame rate average around 30, as to 60fps max. And on some arcade games where there're a lot of enemies spawning, the frame rate drops to single digit.
Other Thoughts: If you're buying this card mainly for video encoding like me, go for something a lot cheaper like the GT 610 at $40, as both of them are using the same VP5 technology, giving them about the same speed.
And if you're going to use a lot of application that utilize the graphic card, get the 2G version, as the 1G version is clearly not enough.
Pros: fast boot time, can open 10+ programs at once instantly
Cons: annoying lags, random lags for no reason average 5 times a day.
Other Thoughts: i regret giving it 4 eggs earlier, and now i'm changing it back to 1 egg. Will not buy from this brand again, I will rather buy a pricier brand for a much more stable duration.READ FULL REVIEW
