Showing 1-10 of 20
Great performance for the money
10 August 2014
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: Any card over 200.00 is going to be awesome. This one works good for the money. The weird thing is the extra power adapter to run it, they are the old power supply ones, not newer sata. This was really a bad design, being that all computer 4 years old and newer have the newer power cords. Be prepared to buy an extra adapter.
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: I bought this card when it was on sale for $209, and it performs like a champ! I can play Crysis 2 with a texture mod and DX11 and it runs nice a smooth. The card will get hot (80+ degrees) if you don't use the Precision X software available from the EVGA website. Once you get a nice fan curve set you can keep the card under 70 degrees during full loads.
Summary: This was part of a babrebone kit I purchased. I don't game much, and find myself playing 5-10 year old games that my boys have shelved. These all run great on highest settings. I have no complaints about this video card. Easy install and easy setup.
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.
