Summary: Very stable card (although it is fairly large) and well worth the money if you need dual DVI. Equipped with GPU fan. Uses PSU connection. Only down side is the size. Other than that, good solid performance.
Noisy fan + jumping through hoops for warranty replacement
4 May 2011
Summary: This video card started out great - software installed easily, hardware installed easily. Then about a year went by and suddenly the fan became incredibly noisy. It's obvious there are parts rubbing on the fan. Eventually the friction builds up enough heat to shut down your computer.
Summary: I thought that I had come problems with my EVGA 260GTX card, and saw this pny card. For $50 after rebate, I knew I could not go wrong and used it as a troubleshooting device, while my other card went to EVGA for RMA. Since I am building up a second computer, I am leaving this card where it is. I used it to build the Star Trek Enterprise refit model in Lightwave 3D 9.6 without a hitch: [...] - and that is good enough for me.
Summary: Bought this card 2 weeks ago to replace 512MB 8500GT card that just couldn't handle newer games with graphic overload. Fear 2 would last 10 minutes on 8500 at minimum settings before giving up the ghost. Can now play Fear 2 (and other high end games) at maximum settings and this card handles them without even the slightest hiccup. Fan on this card only runs when the card needs it, so it's super quiet, even when the fan kicks on it's better than the last card I had.
Summary: wow, this graphics card is just hot. The picture quality is so good at my 24 inches dvd-d connection, I did not see with any card. Intially, since I was having only 250 Watt ATX power supply in my workstation, and also not having PCI-e 6 pin power connector, I did not got the quality what I was looking for.
Summary: I've been using it for about a week. Replaced my old 7300GT. Exponentially more powerful than that card, and still quieter. Owns my friend's 7900GS as well. What I liked: - Plays Spore, Bioshock, Stalker, Hellgate (yeah, Hellgate) with details dialed all the way up at my monitor's native resolution (1440 x 900). - Slight overclock out of the box - Fan whispers, but it still keeps the card cool.
