Excellent videocard for the specs, money and airflow.

Summary: After burning out my previous card on a homebuilt rig. I found this item and purchased it based on the reviews, price, reputation of the manufacturer and the honking big fan. Why? I have realized that the fan that is often just glommed on really doesn't provide any sort of consistent air flow for the graphics card during intense use - photo/video editing, gaming, etc. I have been using this for about a year. I have had no issues with overheating or similar problems.

Summary: This improved my graphics only a little better than the native Intel Graphics on my i7 (maybe about 15-20% better), but since I installed it, it randomly turns the monitor off, about 3-5 times per day. I'm not sure if this is a power-saving mode, or an issue with my power supply. I'm going to upgrade my PS to 750-Watts and if that makes a difference, I'll revise this review.
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: *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!!!
