Summary: Great card once I got it to work. Installed into a Win-Xp machine and caused all kinds of issues, but I don't blame the hardware. The drivers were the issue. Replacing a blown card meant that I couldn't properly uninstall the previous card before installing this one.
Summary: I love the performance of this video card, but ultimately had to send it back. The fan was imbalanced and sounded like a hairdryer. I updated the firmware. From 30% to 100% fan speed, it drove me crazy. Waiting on my refund from Tiger Direct now :(
Summary: This card will run at the clock speeds/voltages as advertised, but *ONLY WHEN IT FEELS LIKE IT SHOULD*. Most users are used to their video card running at one speed all the time. These 400 series Nvidia cards use bios based power management to raise/lower the clocks/voltages to what it feels like is...
Summary: forget using the HDMI out duel screen as it will fail the Sony DMI (digital rights management) even playing your own recorded HD however I thing I got a defective card as every so often I crash hard due to nva_4 error even though I formatted the drive and has the new drivers by the way forget the...
Summary: Great performance, but the External Exhaust version of this card is very loud. Coming from a EVGA 9800+ that is practically inaudible at idle and barely audible when gaming this card was not what i was looking for. Upon first boot i could already hear the fan even in a closed case it was too loud.
Summary: Afraid I have to agree with those who say this card is loud. Not INCREDIBLY loud, but quite noticeable. I noticed it the second I powered my machine on after installing the card, it sounds like a miniature vacuum cleaner in my case.
Summary: Not bad... I do sometimes see artifacts during boot with Windows 7 and every now and then the screen goes black then returns to normals with a "driver" error message in windows 7. I do look forward to an upgrade soon...
Summary: Upgraded from the 9800 GT using a 6400+ processer and total computer performance slowed down. Replaced the CPU with a 945 and now it's much better. I seem to be having a slight issue with skinny horizontal lines flashing across the screen every once in a while though... weird.
