EVGA GeForce GT 640 is Fast For the Money

Summary: This card is pretty amazing for a measly $104. I needed to throw together another video editing / rendering machine to speed up my work flow and this coupled to my Dell R5400 server does the trick. I assume it would also work great for a lower end gaming card. The card scores a 7 on the Windows performance test so it's pretty snappy for the money.
Summary: This is clearly better than every one of those below. I don't know how it compares to the best. But seriously, for the money it does dual screens great, frame rates on the lame programs i run seem good. I did no benchmarking since I am not that guy. But my old video card died, was buried, and replaced by the former company twice and they all died, and this one does its work with no complaints.
Summary: This video card is a good upgrade to extend the useful life of an old MacPro a bit. I put mine in a MacPro 3,1 (early 2008, 8-core 2.8GHz) and the system worked perfectly with Mavericks (stock copy of the OS, no changes/mods applied to the OS). About the only thing I noticed is that I didn't see the gray apple logo during the booting process, but it presents no significant impact to the usability of this product.
Summary: I already have one, so I bought this graphics card for my son who likes to use memory intensive programs like Blender and Adobe to create special effects. While it's meant for gaming, it offers an intense boost to effects editing. I do not play the MMO games, but it's actually built with those in mind, so there can be little doubt that it will perfect and heighten your gaming experience.

Summary: *EVGA Rebate- Beware* The rebate is scam. I sent in all my information including the bar code label cut out from the box. It was rejected because it was not pasted. Yet, it was in the envelope. Just another rebate scam, Why do rebates. Never again will I purchase from EVGA!!!
Summary: This is a solid, economical video card. It won't be breaking any benchmarking records anytime soon, but for a mid-level graphics processing unit, it does a really nice job. I purchased this card for a customer's build, it stays cool and runs solidly. It runs Sims 3 with all of the expansions and updates for her with no issues on full settings, and I would feel comfortable even pushing it a bit further.
Summary: Not sure if it's the card or just my luck. The first card I got was faulty out of the box. The screen would go dark after boot up and stay that way. The replacement card seemed to work ok. Except 3 months into it, it started to show strange artifacts all over the screen. This happens when I game occasionally, but it would go away when I quit the game. Now 6 months of ownership, the same thing happened again during my game.
Summary: I was searching for a better video card for my gaming computer and this was recommended to me by tech support at Cypertron as the one that would best fit my current rig without upgrading the power supply. With a 500 watt power supply this card fit my current system. It was a quick and easy install and then when I went into my game wow what a difference in the video quality!
