Preformance of the card is great, especially for the price
6 March 2015
Summary: Preformance of the card is great, especially for the price. Unfortunately installation was a huge hassle because it disabled the on board graphics but would not display out. The fault was likely of my board and BIOS. Be wary of installing this card on boards for premade "normal" desktops unless you are tech savy and patient.
Summary: It's a great graphics card for people that aren't extreme gamers but it is almost on that list you can play all games on high to ultra. Watch dogs I could play on high but it lags too much for me when I'm driving around so I just go on high, any free game, or any games that are a couple years old you can play on ultra, but I do see some fps drops and such when it gets hot.
Summary: I purchased this because my current PC was running an Intel HD 4000 and was nowhere near enough the power I needed to play the current generation of games. I bought this because it looked reasonably priced and I've heard good things of it. It plays all current games at Max to high settings at 60 FPS. The only problem I have with it is that in Crysis 2 it crashes within 5 minutes of playing.
Summary: As said in the title, I switched from an integrated card with 512 mb to this card that is 2 gigs. When I ordered it, I thought, "Hm, I know this card will do better, but how much?" I got this card and I was stunned. I ran games that I couldn't play before on high-ultra settings! I got 60 FPS on GTA IV with it pretty much maxed! Keep in mind, I bought this PC about 2 years ago. It was a pre-built one, so you can imagine how bad my CPU is.
Summary: Unfortunately the card I received has a balance issue with its fan, so it would sometimes start scraping against the inner sides of the plastic shroud and make buzz/click noises. I am RMAing it and getting an EVGA GTX770 instead (that has custom ACX large fans that should not have this potential issue). Still a fantastic card though, overlooking the somewhat poor fan implementation.
Pros: Fantastic performance/cost ratio * Looks great in PC build * EVGA's famous warranty and customer service * blower style fan great for medium-sized PC case
Cons: Shroud is plastic rather than metal * the single fan overworks itself and is quite a bit louder than 2-fan cooling solutions
Summary: I got this card for my Alienware X51 since it came with a GT 640 1gb GDDR5(its the OEM version, not available for purchase). And although the GT OEM version worked with every game I tried to play, it didn't work well with PhysX and you could tell the graphics were lack luster. So I grabbed this 660, since it only puts out 140w max, and the x51(with 330w EXTERNAL BRICK, NOT INTERNAL FELLAS) can handle a card that uses up to 150w.
Summary: Bought this because my computer needed a dedicated graphics card. I'm running a Asus i7 3.40GHz with 8gb RAM. With this card I can now run most games I've tried on High/Ultra settings no problem. My only complaint is upon installation of the hardware, I could not get the drivers to install. (NVIDIA software failure) After trying every solution I could find, I upgraded my system to windows 8 and everything worked fine.
Summary: Definitely a nice card for the money. Runs Battlefield 3 at high settings in multiplayer at 60 fps. Will run any current game well if you have a good cpu. Only problem I am having is that my card is running HOT. Not sure if it's just mine but from benchmarks I have seen it should be running cooler. Idles at ~30 degrees and came up to 83 degrees under load.
Summary: I have a computer I built which has a 2600k I7 over clocked processor, 16g of RAM, SSD pcie drives, and a z68 mother board. I did not get a graphics card because I don't do gameing. When I started to do more serious design I realized that the integrated graphics processor in the i7 could not handle it even though its awesome for other stuff like encoding.. So instead of spending $400 on some other cards I got this and it works great.
