Summary: I selected this card to upgrade an existing Windows XP/Linux machine. I wanted the highest performance I could get with a single power connector and my research led me to this overclocked ASUS card. I've been buying ASUS motherboards for a decade without an issue and this card has been equally reliable. This card is also quiet - the novel heat sinks and big dual fans are rarely audible in my system, even when gaming.

Summary: I was really impressed! Most cards require two power cables to operate in older PC's (and mine isn't that old). This card requires only one, which I had. I've never played games at full LCD resolution before, and this just works! dead-silent too. Works perfectly on Linux provided you get the latest driver from Nvidia.
Summary: I am not a wildly smart computer person, but I know what happened after my nephew installed this for me. My WOW Game went through the roof. Framerate went from 9 to 59 and sometimes 79. I kick butt - Very happy violent old broad here. Very wonderful deal on a graphics card and very happy Wow player.
Summary: About 5 years ago, my system was top of the line. I had an Intel I7 processor, 8GB of DDR3 RAM, and one of the best all around video cards available, the Radeon 4750. Over the next 5 years, this system withstood the test of time. Even as my friends were buying nicer, faster systems with SLI crossfire cards and huge amounts of RAM, my system was keeping up just fine.
Summary: This card is quite the bang for the buck. I run an experienced PC with an I3 processor. Before this card I was playing TW: Rome 2 on some low specs, and with it I can almost run it on max with the same framerate I had before. Install was simple, but I have a bit of experience installing graphics cards, so I'm not positive it would be easy for everyone.
This card is everything you will need if you are a casual gamer that just wants to be able to play the game and have it look goo

Summary: No SLI. But you wont need it. This card is everything you will need if you are a casual gamer that just wants to be able to play the game and have it look good. Its not the "worlds best card" but at $150. It performs like its $250. SO YOU KNOW: You're going to have to have a 6 pin power plugin or an adapter. It takes up 2 slots on the back of your rig, so be weary if you have a lot of stuff back there. I have a mini board and didn't think about size until I got this.
