Summary: I do not know how good graphics card would have been. The card was a bit too long to fit in the case. When I installed the card, I had to move the hard drive to install the card and move it back again. However, the card hit the hard drive case. I finally removed the graphics card, and installed the old card back into the slot. I ordered and received from another company a 'regular' but higher speed graphics card.
This is a great video card, but bad mini HDMI CABLE

Summary: I have owned this card for more than two years. It plays as well today as it did the day I bought it. It requires two power inputs, so be aware that your pc can supply the dc current to it. Also, be sure to download the latest software for it. Amazingly, the DVI ports pass through audio, which I find unbelievable. The mini HDMI cable included sucks, though. It jiggles loose easily.
Summary: I've been running this CPU now for a couple years and it still hasn't met its match in games. I run games at max settings with no issues whatsoever. I'm running an Intel Quad Core 2.6GHz CPU which is probably the only bottleneck in my system at the moment. I'm actually thinking about grabbing another one of these cards soon and trying out SLI, though I've had some trouble in the past with earlier cards in SLI...we'll see...
Summary: The GeForce GTX465 was $200 at the time I bought it, when EVGA released the GTX 580. Although the latter was by far one of the most advanced cards out there upon release, the former trails behind only slightly. As a 1 GB GDDR5 card, the only programs you won't be able to run at full settings without a massive drop in FPS are the most recent graphic-intensive video games (you'll still be able to run those too).
Summary: I' m running this GPU in dual SLI at 1920x1200 and I'm happy with the performance. I was able to overclock it pretty well: core clock: 840 mhz / shader clock: 1680 mhz / memory: 1825 mhz and my temperatures are never over 70 degrees under full load. I'm able to run the latest titles at max settings: metro 2033, battlefield bad company 2, battlefield 3..
Summary: First off I have dual EVGA 465 GTX SLI. I play many games ranging from WoW and Rift to Battlefield and Crysis. One card did decent on high graphics on everything, SLI was twice a good. If you are gaming or overclocking, you will get better performance with either a 460 GTX or a 470 GTX. With the 600 series releasing in January it may be worth the wait for either a 600 card or a discounted 560+ card.
Would be a great card without the BSOD (black and blue)

Summary: Pros: Works really well when it does not crashes with current games Cons: It crashes.. a lot and randomly. It is also a known issue with nvidia and evga but it is not being addressed. Search "The Nvidia 400/500 series lockup club!" and navigate to the nvidia forums. There are also plenty on the evga forums as well. They list a lot of cards to avoid that have known issues.
Summary: This is a decent, card. All in all, it has been runing fine, with no issues. The exhaust seems to be a bit hot, but that is not uncommon with this line. The only major complaint that I have is that the mini HDMI cable that comes included is of poor quality. The connector seems a bit loose, and thus has to be jiggled. It is a failing with the manufactuing of the cable only. Not a huge issue, but the requirement to buy a new cable brought the review down to a 3 from a 4.
Summary: It's a good GPU to have if you're just simply building a overall computer. I mean you can do video rendering, play games that requires DirectX11. It is loud if you do plan on OC, which I've achieved at 715.
