No matter your platform, this card is worth money and upgrade.

Summary: This is an excellent video card, whether you're on PC or MAC. This was plug and play right into my Mac Pro 4,1. It requires two [mini] PCI-to-PCI cables to power on [inside my mac pro]. I am running the 10.9 and it required no extra drivers or work, as of now, other than installation. Just be sure this is the ONLY vid card you are using when using specific apps, because it will have GPU conflicts with more than one card installed. I.E.
Summary: I bought this graphics card two years ago, and it still works great! I just got Battlefield 4 about a week ago and it played it on high settings with about a 75 C 100% load temperature. I also particularly like that it can still go SLI, so I can wait for a deal to happen or the price to drop on another gtx 570 instead of buying a new top-of-the-line graphics card again.
Great value for the price, outstanding performace alone or in SLI config.

Summary: This graphics card provides just the right amount of video performance "bang" for the buck. As the new cards keep coming out from NVIDIA this is not a weak card at all. I bought this card as a second for my SLI setup, but ran it single for several months. Very stable in non overclocked settings. Quiet and stays cool.
Performs well, but seems to be having issues sooner than expected

Summary: I got this about a year ago to replace a video card that was getting old, but it seems to be having issues already. I can't really pinpoint what the problem is except that one game I've been trying to play always seems to crash after playing it for a few minutes, but it doesn't happen with any other games I play. And yes, I've made sure my video card drivers and Java were updated.
Summary: I have an older motherboard (EVGA SLI 790i) and processor (Intel Quad Core) and wanted a graphics card that will be the best fit for my architecture and I feel I have that with this video card. My only bottleneck on my system is my CPU at this point, but for this machine that mostly edits and finishes video productions, it is working well.
Summary: Hardware rendering of video in Premiere Pro. Works great and is less expensive that most Premiere-compatible cards. I don't have experience with its performance in gaming as I use it strictly in my editing machine, where it's a gem.
Summary: On the advice of PC Maximum I bought 2 0f these for an SLI system in a computer I was building. They said that it was one of the least likely vid boards to overheat. I agree with their advice.
Summary: This card has performed very well for me. Plays all the latest games at max settings or close to max on a few games. It pumps out the heat when under full load, but the card itself stays in a decent heat range. the fan on this card does its job well and EVGA software is well designed for on the fly overclocking, over voltage, and fan speed control.
