Summary: I bought the card a couple years ago (it was more expensive then) but it was a big step up from the 8600 GT i was running at the time. I am surprised at how well this card can still run newer games considering its age. I can play Crysis 2 and Skyrim at nearly the max settings for several hours without any lag whatsoever. Remember to occasionally remove it and clean off the dust. Normal Operating temperatures are 45 at idle and I have never seen it go above 80.
PNY branded Nvidia GTX 465 Fermi PCI Express 2.0 x16 is a great video card!

Summary: Even though the PNY GTX 465s are discontinued items, they were great cards. Many of them had all the power of the higher end still made GTX 470s with a true GF-100-275-A3 GPU and 10 RAM chips on board, but the higher features in the cards were disabled so PNY could sell them at greatly reduced prices. I was able to get one of these PNY 465 cards on eBay and flash the BIOS to GTX 470 specification.
Summary: For most this is probably a no Brainer? I ordered this card & installed it ... Screen wouldnt come up, called the Tech line on the box. They were extremley helpful as well as knowledgable. The computer I have has a 350w Power Supply, this card takes at least that much to run. So if you order this card, you might check your power supply capabilites first, so that if need be, you can order a Larger Power Supply along with the card ...

Summary: It could be flashed to gtx 470, which I did. Only think is the memory clock wouldn't handle it, and their were artifacts in gaming. I just edited the bios with nibitor to about 124mhz less, (was stable at - 100mhz, extra 24 to make sure), and I've had no problems since. Was worried at first, but turns out everything was ok. This is cool that this card is able to unlock; too bad they are removing this line. Good card! Thanks!
Summary: The item itself arrived in a relatively timely manner with no delays. Inside the box, however, the packaging left me a bit skeptical. Even though it looks like the product itself was not damaged while it was being transported, the lack of any preventive measures left me skeptical. The box for the product itself filled up the entirety of the box being used to ship it, leaving little room for any padding or material to deter any accidental drops or bumps.
