Summary: It worked great from the moment I installed it and turned on the computer. I'm a mechanical engineer doing CAD drawings and needed a faster graphics card for my Autocad software. It was just what was needed.
Summary: Bought this card because my wife needed it for the CAD programs she's using for her interior design classes. Really happy with the quality of this product. Would recommend this card to anyone who is looking for a semi-pro card that will get the job done. Really awesome features and renders images in superb quality and quickly. A+ for Amazon and PNY.
Summary: Great CAD card for the price. Runs my Autodesk Inventor very well...better than the two G-force 7900GS cards I had running in SLI configuration. Highly recommended. And the card came in the mail earlier than expected. Once again, I am more than pleased with my Amazon purchase.

Summary: So glad I got this card - what a difference in video quality! It boosted my Windows performance score to 565. In addition to the quality of the video resolution, I really appreciated the connectors for two DVI cables instead of the more common one DVI, one vga. Don't get fooled by the claims that you can simply get a VGA/DVI connector to hook up to the DVI port - a VGA cable doesn't have the same number of pins so it won't produce the same DVI quality.
Good Card for 3D and CAD Apps if You're on a Budget

Summary: Just a preface: If you're a 2d illustrator or gamer, there is no big benefit to get this card. In case anyone is wondering this card scores about 6.5 on the Windows7 Experience Index (Max you can receive is a 7.9) If you're working on CAD and 3D and need a bit of a boost but have to budget, you should get this card. I specifically bought this card so I can get into the 3d realm of work. I am actually an illustrator and put this into my new Quad desktop.
Summary: I've found this board to be fast, compatible, and competitively priced. It hasn't given me any problems in the several months that I've been using it with AutoCAD and SolidWorks on a newer Dell desktop at work.
