Summary: I have no idea why some of you would put this card down. I had this card for a good year and it never ran hot, it ran like a champ, ran better then this new one I have now. Only reason I dont have one now is the fan fell out , other then that I would buy another just like this again
Summary: Performance is great, I use it for mostly for 3d gaming and design. It is very long, but fits in my atx midtower just fine. It runs a bit hot, but if you have a descent ventilated case, it should work fine.
Summary: This is/was a good card for the money, but it's easily the largest video card I've ever seen (11" in length) and I had to buy a new conputer case to fit it. It took a LONG time to find a case that it really would fit in. Most cards are just 9" in length and would not give you this issue.
