Summary: Awesome product, was scared it wouldn't work because I was buying it pre-owned from an anonymous source on the internet. It turned out to work great, and I can run most games on Very High Settings without lag or interruption of any sort. I even spilled water on it once because I was trying to walk while tripping on magic mushrooms which made it short out. I was sure i had fried the thing, and I unplugged it and let it dry all day.
Summary: The Gtx 550 ti is great, but there are other cards that show the same performance but a lot cheaper. Don't go for this card. Look up Radeon cards like HD 7770 or if you like the expensive nividia brands, the gtx 650.
Summary: Have been running two of these SLI'd together for a year now. They are holding up great, put an aftermarket water cooling system on it and it works flawlessly. Works on all the games i like to play and all of them play on max settings.
Summary: I purchased an identical card last October while building my custom desktop PC. I new I wanted to have 2, in an SLI configuration, but could not afford it up front. I have used the card and have no issues with it. When I went to order a second one, I found the EVGA no longer makes it, so I was lucky to find this one. I love EVGA cards, and this was a great card for mid-grade use with some moderate gaming.
Summary: I know that this is a used product, but the seller said on the description like new. There was nothing wrong with the box it was shipped in, however when I installed the video card I got lines on my screen and my PC kept crashing. I know it was the video card because I put my old card back in and everything is working fine. If your going to sell used equipment and say it's like new, then you better damn well test it before you ship it out!!
Summary: This product works exactly as it is supposed to. I connected it using my SLI bridge to my other 550Ti, and I am enjoying a 3 screen 1080P experience. Great for video development and does not lack power. This device supplies more than most gamer, 3D designer, or video editor will ever need. Also, using the MSI Afterburner software, you can tune the device to your preference. Adjusting fan speeds on both cards, as well as core clock (Run-time overclocking).
Well it's a decent card, but drivers have problems

Summary: Alright, so this seems to be a common problem amongst NVIDIA type graphics cards lately. It seems that the drivers have a tendency to stop responding and recover. While I've never experienced this problem while playing any games it tends to become annoying when you are just sitting around on the desktop.
