Summary: I thought the NVidia 610 was decent but the 650ti oc is much much much better. I have to say that this card has to be the best of the low end mid level cards. Yes, I know there are probably better cards out there like the 750's and so forth, but for the price I bought this card at (around 85$) and how well this card works, it's kinda hard to beat.
The only thing worse than the product is the customer service

Summary: The video card had no output, the fan spun but nothing, not on dvi, not on hdmi, and not on vga. Went to the website, went through ALL the unnecessary hoops, called the customer service number during their business hours and they claimed it wasn't during their business hours, as if I am unable to read a clock. Never returned my e-mails. If you're looking for a video card and you hate functionality and you especially hate customer service then this is the card for you.
Summary: I wanted to upgrade my video card to run Windows 8.1, and this card seemed to be a good fit. The card that I had previously was a ATI 5770, which would have been fine, but I was having stability issues with my system and I thought the video card was suspect (turns out, it was not related).
Summary: This card outperforms competitors cards with similar specs. Steam and other games run fine, notably better framerates than AMD card. No graphical stutter at all. Unfortunately, I run a Yamakasi 2560x1440 LED IPS monitor which requires this card to run at max when any games are played. This causes a lot of fan noise and the card reaches temperatures well over manufacturer specified limits. If you are using this card for video, it is a great choice.
Summary: I purchased this for my first computer build, installing in Gigabyte GA H77-D3SH motherboard with 4 GB of ram. I installed Ubuntu 12.04 LTS as my operating system. Ubuntu recognized the card and automatically selected the Nividia driver. I realize this is not a high end graphics card but it serves my purposes. Now my son wants to play Minecraft on my computer. I am not sure this is a good thing!
