Pros: The price was spot on for what I wanted to pay. I don't game at all so I only wanted this for low level video conversions.
Cons: I thought since this was a refurb it would have any kinks worked out of it. I keep getting system freezes and blue screens. Returning to new egg and purchasing a new GPU from a different manufacturer.
Pros: This is a monster of a card. Being my very first brand new card I had some high expectations of it and it fulfilled all of them. This thing doubled my FPS in all the games I play, and that is on ultra settings. Going up from a GTX 460 I was a little worried I wouldn't see much difference. Well there is plenty. At this price point I would definetly recommend purchasing this video card!
Summary: I still haven't come close to using the full potential of this card, but so far it has been great. I'm currently using it to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and it's definitely meeting the standards. The GeForce Experience feature is also really cool, as it updates the drivers frequently and automatically detects supported games. Very happy with this purchase.
Summary: Bought this graphics card because I liked it a little better than the EVGA even though that one has slightly faster speeds. Don't know if the speeds are even really noticeable. I also have a Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD5 motherboard and so I figured I would try and stick with the same brand. The card is exactly what I wanted and for a decent price too. $205 at the time. I run all my games at max settings on 1680x1050 and get pretty good fps.
