Summary: I of course can't tell you whether the reason my card stopped working was because of a lemon, or an inherent problem with the product, but after a quick search online, overheating seems to be a reoccurring issue with this card according to many customers. With only one fan, this card would heat up my entire system by at least 8 degrees Celsius. It was also slightly laggy when performing GUI effects. When I had almost had it for a year, it started crashing.
Superb card although still not cheap even after 3 years

Summary: I was forced to pick this card as I was not willing to upgrade my power supply, not augment the chassis design of my case. This card is powered by a Dell Precision T5500 with 72GB of RAM, and dual hex-core processors. It's design is strictly for video editing, video rendering as well as multi track audio mixing and post production. Notably it scores a 7.9 on the Windows 7 Experience Index, without overclocking.
Summary: More than enough for Adobe Lightroom 4 (I just down arrow in grid view and my catalog of 25,000 high quality thumbnails zoom by without stopping from beginning to end. No hiccups or pauses.) Adobe Premiere is slick and fast and uncompressed rendering is super quick (CS 5.5) ..Adobe After Effects is faster too (Although it doesn't use Mercury playback, all this memory makes it render previews in GPL much faster.
Summary: I bought this card to replace my beloved-yet-aging GTX285. The 285 was great for Call of Duty: MW2, but when it came to Battlefield 3, the 285 just didn't have the horsepower to really shine. I upgraded to the GTX570 because it's still a DX10 card (the max my MB supports) and provided a significant performance leap when I checked out the performance reviews of the two cards head to head. The install was straight forward, and it worked right away.
Summary: For people who think about buying a graphics card and use it for games that conmpren recomindo them this Produ devido in the tests that I've done has given optimum performance, the only drawback I've had with this product is that it is heated demaciado when playing for a long period of time, to rest this card offers great performance potential and amazing in games.
Summary: I was a bit concerned about it being refurbished but it came in like-new packaging with all cables as if it were new. I bought this to put in a MacPro 3,1 running 10.7 and was wondering if I would have a boot screen problem. But so far, I've not missed it. I did install current Nvidia drivers first, before installing the card but then it has worked perfectly fine since then.
Summary: This card an excellent choice for anyone looking for a high end and powerful graphics card that will not break the bank. Had one of these cards for a little under a year now, wanted something with enough VRAM to handle Battlefield 3 on ultra, ran well with some minor frame drop with all the eye candy turned on. Now with two in SLI still get all the bonus of the extra RAM and the added processing power. Scores breaking 80 FPS now!
