Worse than the card it replaced

Summary: I replaced my 9600GT with this card. Even with the latest drivers installed and no overclocking, it stuttered on games like Sleeping Dogs and SpecOps: The Line while my old one ran them just fine. I read that this was a nextgen card, but it's terrible with games; at least the ones I tried.
Summary: my other card Geforce 7900 gs was a very good card lasted 6 years went bad was going to get another one just like it but a friend said i should go with the Geforce GTX 550 Ti 1024 MB GDDR5 sure glad i did . I also had to put in a new power supply at lease 400 watt. I put in a 450 antac power supply.
Summary: Since I have purchased PNY products in the past, I was sure this video card would be good, I was not disappointed. Installing board and loading drivers was easy, and it works as advertised. Would recommend this card to anyone that is looking for a good performer at a reasonable price.
Summary: Just upgraded my desktop, new ram (8gb DDR2), new power supply (500W), windows 7 64-bit, 24"monitor with 1920X1200 reselution and this graphics card connected to it with a DVI cable, running with and Intel quad core, all on a dell XPS 420. Got it, installed it, and loved it.
Just wish it was cooled better. When idle the fan is silent

Summary: Only complaint is it has 1 loud fan. PNY is really insistent on single fan GPUs. Never had any problems with it. Never crashed. Just wish it was cooled better. When idle the fan is silent. But when you game you may want to stick to medium/high settings in 1080p.
Summary: It really is a decent card. It runs Guild Wars 2 on maxed out settings at about 30-40 fps, and on medium 40-60+. I am running it at 1920x1080, so you should get a little bit more at lower screen resolutions. Only thing I don't like is that the fan is loud.
Summary: Before purchasing this product I tried to get information from internet about the perfomance of this video card, many said this was not the best option for gaming but after testing it i could say for everyone who look for a good video card this is more than enough, 5x more powerful than my old...
Works perfectly, but received a differently styled card.

Summary: I needed a new video card, and I've had good luck with Nvidia cards in the past, so I gave them another shot. Boy was I impressed! My shoddy little dual core (running at 2.8 ghz) runs everything I've asked with graphics cranked and in 1920x1080 at a steady 40 to 60 frames per second.
