Summary: I bought this card to do SLI but since it is discontinued I thought I would take a chance on a refurb. Unfortunately, when I installed it my computer became unstable. The mother board I have is SLI ready and the cards were an exact match. So I returned it for a refund.
Summary: When i received the item, it was damaged. The vga cooler was totally smashed. I Bent the heatsink back in place and then installed it and everything seems to be in working order. I went through the trouble of fixing the unit because it is a rare find and i needed the 2gb version to set up my sli.
Summary: This is my first video card purchase in quite sometime. I found that this video card was compatible with the unit that I was building (Shuttle SZ77R5) and decided to go with it. It rates well on the Windows Experience Index (7.8).

Summary: I needed a GPU solution capable of outputting to three full HD displays for a total resolution of 5760x1080. Due to this high resolution across three monitors, VRAM was critical which is why I settled on this 2GB card as opposed to a higher-end 1GB card.
Summary: Listen guys, this video card is an absolute beast! Runs BF3 on ULTRA! Understand that a good cpu will be needed for this game to run (quad core) but this card is amazing! The MSI Afterburner allows for easy overclocking past what it comes overclocked with.
