Summary: It's such a beasty card. I use it for scientific computing. I know that Fermi chips works better than the later Kepler chips in terms of HPC. It does. It impresses me a lot. It reduces the time I need to complete a calculation by 3/4 from my latest i7 CPU.
Summary: This card is the best card on the market hands down. I use it primarily for gaming with 3D Vision at 1080P resolution. The 3D is amazing. It really adds a lot more immersion when playing games.
Summary: Bought this based on what looked like ground-breaking air-cooling design by MSI - their new "FROZER III" supercooling package. Let me say that so far, on an all air-cooled i7 2600k overclocked to 4.7, this card, overclocked from 770 mhz to 1.0 Ghz runs cool and super-quiet.
Summary: I have used this graphics card in my custom-made Xeon ER-1270 workstation with 8GB RAM and I am very happy with my choice. My monitor is HP ZR24w, 1920x1200 16:10 with 24" size. This card is showing brilliant displays for games and Camtasia Studio although Camtasia is limited in terms of capture...
Summary: I have had this card for a month, with no problems. I forgot how much I love Nvidia.This card is massive, and it rocks. I can run ALL games with it. Metro 2033, has some low frame rates, but its maxed, and still very playable. Make sure you have a large case, because you are going to need it.
Summary: I researched all GTX 580s available through Tom's Hardware benchmarks, overclocking forums, and other such places on the internet. This card, for the price will give you the best cooling, out-of-the-box performance, and overclockability per dollar.
This card is the best I have ever owned, but it's the largest too!

Summary: This card is the best and the most expensive I have ever owned, but it's the largest too! For the first time, I had to move some hard drives into different slots because this card went a couple inches past the front of the hard drives.
Summary: A beast! You can only really appreciate the craftsmanship of the custom PCB and cooler when you hold it in your hands. Performance wise, it's a beast at overclocking, mine does 1000mhz with very little tweaking all while staying cool at 75C at load.
