Summary: Ten years ago I used to be on top of graphics chipsets and their specifications. These days, not so much. So, is this card worth the money? *shrug* This card does the job for me. It performs well for my purposes, doesn't run too hot, and doesn't cost and unreasonable amount of money. My one complaint is that the plastic guard extends rather far past the end of the card and makes it a little difficult to get into the case.
Summary: The graphics card works well and as advertised. The only sham in this order is the refund. When you try to get the forms it will not allow you to enter the required postal zip code. Even when you can enter the zip code it claims it is invalid and to enter an actual zip code. I would recommend this graphics card, but don't let the phony $10.00 rebate sway your decision - you won't get it!! If you keep trying it may take the entire 30 day after purchase time limit.
Summary: I purchased this card to replace the card in my teens computer. He upgraded from a Nvidia 8800 GT to my old Nvidia 8800 GTX and now to this 650. Instantly notable gain in graphic performance. Fan design put the air into the case instead of out of the rear vents of most video cards however This cooler is more efficent than the single fan unit. This is no problem for the Case that we are currently using. Antec 300 mid tower has great cooling.
Summary: Bought this card for my Dell precision T3500 workstation. It fits, but only just, this is a very long card and it takes up two slots.. Check dimensions before buying it for your PC. You will need to provide it with extra power, so again make sure you have a spare power connector. Once fitted though, it's a quiet card and see to work well.Windows performance index is 7.3 for both desktop and gaming graphics.
Summary: super fast delivery, arrived in high quality packaging. easy to install, looks fab. has deffo boosted a lot fo my PC gaming capabilities, can put a lot of settings to high or very high. LoL runs at highest for everything.
