Summary: This card deserves 5 stars, it runs all my games without a hitch at high-ultra settings. Games with high particle density like WoW, D3, and SCII are no problem! I did have some software issues with the card a few months ago and it ended up being an issue with the drivers. Since the drivers are necessary for the card to perform, I was a little frustrated but was able to resolve it by rolling back to a previous driver version.
Summary: worked very easily with my acer computer. It came with retail packaging, an hdmi to mini hdmi adapter and a screws to help me mount it. Easy install, and setup. The software it comes with optimizes my games for me automatically, which is a good feature as some games I don't know what all the confusing options do. I have this video card hooked up to my monitor through dvi, my television through hdmi, and I bet I could use another monitor as there are two dvi/vga ports.
Summary: I would like to say that I really like this card...but I never got the chance to use it since I have an older computer, and even though I have a power supply that is big enough to handle the new card, my motherboard (built before Oct. 2012) uses legacy BIOS, and all the new graphics cards use UEFI BIOS. Not compatible, and will cause the computer to not start after installation. I didn't know all this until a lot of time was spent with HP help and Nvidia help..
Summary: Bought two for gaming and 3D/Photoshop work. Works beautifully. Ridiculously fast for a previous generation set of graphics cards. Decent price for it's power and having purchased two of them and using dual monitors, I can attest that they have been stress-tested. Been almost a year now and there has been zero problem. Keep it updated and keep your PC cool. Everything will be fine.
Graphics Score 7.3 - TRAINZ Simulation happy even with 300 Watt supply

Summary: Gaming Graphics Score 7.3 in W7. I bought this to run TRAINZ 2012 on a 300Watt power supply for an older W7 Duo-CPU ASUS motherboard with two DVI monitors. I was prepared to buy a 450Watt power supply, and might in the future. The GTX 650 works just fine. It required TWO spare 4-pin plugs in case your power supply does not already have an nVideo power plug. The unit comes with a nVideo pigtail cable to adapt to such older power supply cables.
Summary: I am extremely happy with this card. The graphics are so much better than my last card. Note: If you install this card yourself - download the drivers from their site. Do not trust the driver disc.
Summary: An absolutely Fantastic card! I've had this card for a little over 4 months and it runs every game I've thrown at it from high to highest settings. But I say this running on a measly 1440x900 monitor. On a 1080 monitor/tv, its runs from medium/high to high settings. But that isn't a problem at all considering I have a strange setup. ANYWAYS, it's also a very quiet card. When i first added the card in to my rig, the noise level didnt change at all.
