Summary: Excellent upgrade to my early 2009 Mac Pro. The card arrived early, and the installation was relatively simple. No drama with startup, as well as with driver download and installation on my boot camped partition.
Excerpt: It's only been installed a week, but I can compare this GTX680 ot the GTX285 it replaced and I can say there is a speed improvement in Premiere Pro. Running 10.9.2 and installation was a snap. Just remember to download and install the CUDA driver first. Note on EVGA - these folks are definitely not supportive of non-gaming Mac professionals so rely on the good folks at B&H for guidance and the many forums for information.
Pros: Easy To Install, Easy To Use, Good Graphics Quality, Reliable Performance
Summary: The best video card I have every owned. Matched it as the prime card in a SLI config with a superclocked MSI 680. I get steady 59 FPS at ultimate video setting on BF4 without overclocking. It is limited because of my monitor 59hz refresh rate.
Excerpt: You'll need OSX 10.8 or higher to run it, but it's a small price to pay if you haven't upgraded your OS. Everything is faster. Renders are faster. Playback in editing programs like Final Cut Pro and Premiere is faster. Cinema 4d renders are literally cut in half.

Summary: I already owned a EVGA GeForce GTX 680 and bought this to complete a 4-way SLI rig, so this is more a review of the vendor than the already excellent product. The vendor was prompt, kept me well-informed throughout the purchasing and delivering process. Although a used card it came in a custom foam holder (not the original packaging material), in an antistatic bag and an EVGA box that matched it very well (this may have been a form of original packaging, just not the...
Summary: I was weary at first about buying a used video card from Amazon Warehouse, but I am glad I did! It's a great way to get that product you want but just can't seem to afford. This was a win-win for me, because I see how Amazon does apply high standards to selling used or refurbished products. And the video card is blazing fast in my custom built i7 3770k desktop PC. EVGA and the Nvidia technology is amazing!!
