Summary: When I plugged the card in my PC wouldn't boot and after some resurch I discovered that this was a symptom of a hard short. Since the card was the only new item I concluded it must have been it. Further investigation revealed the circuit board and heatsink didn't even match.
Summary: It plays games flawlessly. My only issues is the drivers keep failing. This is most likely due to the used, dusty condition in which I got the card and in no way should affect your decision to get this card.
Summary: A friend turned me on to this card because of how much they go for used and the fact they are pretty tuff cards. So far it has been able to handle everything I have tried with no problems and I have been doing my best to push it just to see up to what exactly its capable of.
Summary: I love this card. I originally built my computer to run this card, but ran out of funds halfway (broke college kid at the time). It's not the best on the market, but it can run most games on high settings.
Summary: I bought this card just over 2 years ago, and was relatively happy with it. It handled just about any game I threw at it, and never seemed to tear or glitch. However, It met a violent end yesterday. I turned on my computer and the card caught on fire.
A good card but dated. If you can get it cheap, you should be happy.

Summary: This card was great two years ago. It runs most of games well at high to max settings on a 1920x1080 display. However since at this moment there are many new cards available at around $150 which is faster than this card, the price is a very important point if you get this card now.
