Summary: Card works okay have experienced problems with video on one of two monitors. Rebate was a total scam I followed all of the instructions to still have them say that that I did not submit UPC , proof of purchase ,and so on. That is exactly what I sent. Now rebate has expired and they have original UPC from box so their is no way to resend. This the rebate offered by Galaxy not the reseller.
Summary: I bought this card when they where around 230$, since then they have gone down in price to the 200$ and even lower. I have owned the card for a couple of months and done light to heavy gaming on it at 1080p coupled with a stock i5 3570k CPU from intel, this card can handle everything i trow at it at 1080p giving me an average of 45-60+ spf on all the games i played, the most graphically extensive being Far Cry 3 and Crysis 2, and i get around 45-60 FPS on them max out.
Summary: This card works AWESOME !! I run all my race SIMs at full, flight SIMs, anything and everything seems to run great with this card. Adobe Photoshop 11, always runs cool, never been hot once. not even after hours of racing SIMs ... DiRT 2, DiRT 3, I have the FULL GTR race on series, everything runs perfect on full or max settings ...no problem ...I always run 3 monitors. ASUS 24" LED's.
Summary: Well, first of I use this card paired with a core 2 duo e8400, 8 GB gskill 1333 Ram and windows 64 home edition. the card is great but I was able to get the max from games from 2009 and below, for far cry my CPU didn't hold quite well and the only real upgrade was that I was able to get the same 45 fps but on ultra, I switch the card to my brothers PC and that CPU is a Phenom X4 BE with the same amount of ram, and well, after that there are 2 things that I can say, first...
Summary: This card is great. I unfortunately never had experienced screen tearing before. Probably because the video cards I used were much slower. The image quality is great. I do have a bit of screen tearing and sound looping in MOH Warfighter. Due to this I purchased the vg248qe that is on sale at amazon right now 2/16/13 for 264.99. 144hz refresh rate. I'm hoping this will solve my issue with screen tearing/audio looping.
