Summary: I purchased this GPU and then returned it. There was nothing wrong, except that I installed it in a system with another GPU of a different type. I saw no problem with performance, but I was advised by PNY that they do not support the K4000 GPU to be installed in that configuration. So I returned it - end of story.
Summary: I bought this to work with programs like Maya and similar, but on the side I also wanted it to be capable to run games, and it's been really great. I'm not saying it would run every game at full graphics, but it does a great job (even though its not a gtx).
Summary: It's ridiculous that you have to spend twice as much to get half the processing power of a modern graphics card just because Nvidia and Autodesk are in bed together. If you want any kind of tech support from Autodesk you have to have the Quadro cards installed. I won't get into that here since the review is for the card and not the intended use. The card works well, and is stable in the system.
Summary: this s*** is REALLY hilarious to me. I see all you poor saps here on Amazon buying low end graphics cards for 600 bucks. 600 bucks or more is a Solid, large investment. I don't see ANY posts on the $3k, 4k, and 5k graphics cards that have 12gb, cards that would more than satisfy every creative, media, and gaming desire you need and want to see. yall are going to keep on buying these cards and thinking, "I needed it now".
