Summary: everything was in the box, everything worked, been using this graphics card for a long time now, still works great! My only complaint is that the plastic cover is a bit flimsy and wasn't quite the power I was looking for, probably should have gotten the 560
Awesome graphics and Video card. Great value for the buck.

Summary: This card is awesome. I wanted to play Final Fantasy XIV, which is an online game, but the download to test my card for minimum requirements said I needed a 1000 score to meet the minimum requirements for the game. My old card made it to 789 and I couldn't even see the video portion of the test, but the sound was there. When I installed this card, I could see the video and scored 3845 on the test.
Summary: When ordered, I thought item was new meaning unused/unopened, but no matter. The product works perfectly and nothing was missing. I will buy from this seller again in the future. Communication and detailing of his service was top notch. Thanks for a good product and a pleasant buying experience.
Summary: For the price this was an excellent purchase. I use it to play a long time favorite - Hellgate London - on a 23" widescreen acer @ 1920 x 1080 60Hz with all settings all the way up, save dynamic lights which I prefer off. (Win7/XPsp3 os, 4gb ram (2.93 for xp) E8400 cpu on a MSI P6NGM-FD mobo.) It replaced my 384mb EVGA 8800GS and is way faster. During gameplay the fan speeds up and is noticeable but not an issue as the game drowns it out.
Summary: After being frustrated with my old video card, which I found out many people were due to poorly made sodering issue, this card was simple to install and works great. If you are not very computer savey (that's me) I installed it myself within 10 minutes. Great value for the small cost, even comes with a rebate.
