Summary: The card works great, it's just not what the box says it is. After installation the device manager and the nvidia control panel reported that it is a GTX470, NOT a GTX580. I consulted with PNY's tech support and they confirmed that it is not a 580, that it was tampered with (labels and serial...
Summary: 01/19/2013 I'm a gamer. I bought 2 of these for sli configuration All I can say is awesome. No crashes. I would buy it again. PNY is a name I have come to trust for video cards. So far I haven't even had to use the 2d one, and I play the latest, most graphic intensive games.
Summary: I bought this card nine months ago. With the exception of some minor driver issues that were corrected by an nVidia patch a few months later, it worked fine for all that time. I play a lot of games, so I used the card heavily during those nine months. A few days ago, the card stopped working.
Summary: I was replacing an older Nividia card for this one. I have an Alienware pc and it has been nothing but trouble. I fell for the case. Alienware is overrated junk. My video card, motherboard and processor was overheating. I had to put more fans in the case.

Summary: After a lot of research i went for the Nvidia GTX 580, it was such a nice choice, the card is freaking quiet, i never hear it, i am able to play all games on max settings at 1920x1080p, the card is always cool, i dont know much what to say, the card is just flat out excellent. The cons?
Summary: The GTX 580 PNY graphics card is a fantastic card. Still the best single graphics card on the market. I was impressed by the power and quality of the graphics that this item produced. However, my problems arose right out of the box.
Summary: The Koolance 580 water block fits this 'reference design' perfectly. So if you are able to water cool, you can overclock this card and have a functional equivalent to two 460's in SLI without the cost or power consumption. In addition, this is the third PNY card I've bought in the last 6 years.
