Summary: I have had this card for 7 months now and I can truely say woah! It handles anything.. you name it! The 3d with my 3d alienware monitor looks freaking amazing!! Sometimes the wow characters seem like they are on top of my keyboard or the dragons seem like they are floating over my hands. I ordered another one for my alienware aurora r4. I set up 3 monitors and will see how this extra card handles games with around the 5000x2000 resolution on the monitors.
Summary: This is the best graphics card i have ever owned. It runs games im max settings DX11 without a hitch. I liked it so much I bought another a year and half later to do SLI (from and friend so i saved alot of money). For a new card it is work it!
Summary: Awesome card, expensive as heck but great fps. sadly I didn't even get to enjoy it because on day one my son spilled his drink into my case and .. Yup liquid on top of card and done. Fast ship, great seller.
Summary: The vendor I chose, "Divine Lite" packaged a 9800TX board in the GTX580 package, I guess, thinking I wouldn't notice. (In fact, I didn't notice at first, because the cards look the same except for some graphics stuck on the plastic cowling.) But, when I put it in my computer and checked the NVIDIA control panel to see what I had, sure enough it was a 9800GX. Not that this is a bad card. Its just NOT THE CARD I ORDERED and its only worth about $150, not the $300 I paid!
Summary: I got this graphic card to play FSX. So far, i can see the improvement of the games graphic. I wish I can overclock this baby to see how far i can push the limits of FSX graphics. This card is quite when the fan are on auto, even at 80% its no louder than my system fans running at high speed.
Summary: This is not a review of this specific card but rather a warning to persons looking to purchase it used from Amazon.com. That is why I awarded it 5 stars; I'm sure it's a great video card when you receive a working model. I bought this card from Amazon.com in "Very Good" condition. It had the return request from the last person to own it who claimed the screen went black when playing video games. I can confirm that the screen indeed does go black..
