Summary: Ran multiple OSs in a full tower with plenty of airflow, 600W PSU, and a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Mobo. Experienced decent CUDA performance on various flavors of Adobe Creative apps, about as expected for # of CUDA cores and memory.
Summary: Overall, the card works great. I am one of those computer nerds who is always hyperventilating when he has to switch out a part for fear of breaking his system. Well luckily it's still running well.
Summary: I previously had another brand that carried a "lifetime" warranty.. until they went out of buisness that is. I paid $400+ for that card and it lasted 2 years. I decided I would no longer put all my eggs in one card so to speak and went back to running SLI.
Summary: I have tried to stress this video card with everything I can by maxing out graphic settings on every game I play, and there is no viable lag or choppiness in any way. I'm not a serious gamer, nor do I run more than one display. I recommend this card to anyone who wants to play the latest games.
Summary: I bought this for my Hack system and it's been great. It's super quiet; I can barely hear it even with the sides off of my tower. I only played a couple of games on the mac side (Portal 2 and Left4Dead 2), but they played great on the highest settings.
Summary: Even under heavy CUDA compute loading (not video related), card temperature stays under 77C. Fans are quiet, I just barely hear them over the top of the noise from the fans in the laptop that sits 2 feet away. When I stop CUDA loads, card temperature and fan speed drop dramatically.
Summary: I just bought this card the other day after my old Radeon HD 4850 bit the dust. I did a bunch of research and was really leaning toward the 570 but the price on it was quite high and I couldn't quite justify a $350 card for my current needs. I went with this GTX 560 and could not be happier.
