Summary: This is not the most expensive graphics card on the market, but I had a stock g/c and a $40 g/c before this and they couldn't hang when I wanted to play skyrim on my PC. I put this in and it did the job amazingly for about 30 secs before it shut down the power supply. So if you decide to upgrade to this then you will also have to upgrade your power supply.
Summary: I bought this as the last video card upgrade for my Mac Pro early 2008 model. I've had it for well over a year now and its been working great. I have three monitors hooked up to it and never had any issues with it. For my setup however it does require separate internal power cables to be hooked to the mother board to get it to work. Did my research and haven't regretted the purchase.
The card died within a week. The cooler still works.

Summary: The displayport had an unreliable connection from day 1. The hdmi port required all other ports to be disconnected to work properly. after the hdmi was activated, other ports could be connected without issue. The DVI ports worked flawlessly. The card died within a week.
Summary: This card was such a great purchase. It's paired with an FX-4100 CPU not overclocked, 8g memory, 1 tb hardrive. I can play most titles at 40+ FPS almost highest settings on the most graphic laden titles. I can play Crysis 3 35-45fps 1080p at high spec settings.There are far more expensive set-ups out there but great card for the money. Very surprising I just got battlefield 4 and can play on high settings with 60fps consistently. It's even playable on Ultra around 45fps.
Summary: The card worked great since i bought it . Though just like that my computer restarted and i got the message that no video signal is being sent to my monitor. The fan still works in it but cant get a display even after changing the different slots as well as hdmi cable.
