Good card...'til they broke.

Pros: Great card at first.
Cons: I bought two of these when I built two identical systems back in March of this year. They worked fine until on the first system the DVI port stopped working. And now on the second system, using HDMI and DVI (dual monitors), the screens are starting to show bad color artifacts. That's about the on...
Summary: I bought this unit as an Open Box, and it came with everything exept the retail packaging. The card was pretty much in perfect condition. I've upgraded from a EVGA card which was good since my 8800GTS before that died, but I was throwing too much at it when multitasking and running video.
Pros: This thing has a lot of juice. It is very stable. The cooler design looks great! This card handles everything I throw at it! I don't game, but I do a lot of multitasking and videos, and It barely coughs. 7.2 in WEI (my system is 5.9 because of boot drive. Need to upgrade to a SSD for that).
Cons: Wonder why Asus is still using a VGA port. I rather have DVI/HDMI/Displayport only.
Pros: Need Help --- I need help...I have a Seasonic 520W Modlar PSU...with 20A 12+v line... Will this Card work on this psu...as in its requirements it says it need an 12+v rail with min 22A.... Please suggest...
Summary: In general, this card is a great value for most mainstream gamers. It will easily handle just about every modern game. Just don't expect 100 FPS on Crysis Warhead with 2048x1600, 12xAA, 16xAF, "ULTRA EXTREME!!" settings.
Pros: Good Value for the Money. I mainly got this to play Starcraft 2, which I run on High settings. In most scenarios, it runs very well (70+ FPS). It also runs Battlefield: BC 2 well on medium. Older games like Team Fortress 2, Dawn of War, etc, are a total breeze with this card on high settings. I d...
Cons: When things start to heat up, it can slow down. Huge 3v3 and 4v4 SC2 battles can certainly slow this card down (15-25 FPS). But these battles are rare & short-lived, and I expect slowdown when 300+ different units are onscreen battling all at once. Same idea with Battlefield: BC 2, where high-set...
Pros: Good budget video card that can still preform well with gaming. Runs very cool, idles at 26C and never gets over 65C under load. Overclocking is very easy with the Asus SmartDoctor software that is included. Mine is currently running stable at 950mhz engine clock (1900mhz processor clock), the me...
Cons: I noticed some problems immediately in MW2 with bad rendering problems and my system bogging down. It ran OK in Windows 7 for a few days and then just died with no video at all even at bootup. I'm sending it and getting a different card since this one is out of stock now.
Summary: I plan to buy another identical card for SLI mode to tackle games coming out later on this year. I'm running a P5N motherboard with the Q8300 Core 2 Quad processer and 4 gigs of ram.
Pros: Superb value for your money. This card turned my aging system into a gamer's delight. I went from barely being able to play Battlefield Bad company 2 in multiplayer on Medium graphics setting to easily playing it in multiplayer on the High graphics setting.
Pros: Rates 7.1 on Windows Experience Index for both aero graphics and gaming graphics performance. (This rating was obtained with the default graphics card settings) Runs extremely cool. Stays at about 29 to 30C when idle. Very good graphics card especially for only a little over $100. Much more cost ...
Cons: I wouldn't consider it a con, but this graphics card is very large as are many high performance graphics cards. So those people with micro-ATX cases need to make sure they have enough room. My case is ATX and this video card presses gently against my hard drives.
