I can get a better card for that much money

Unhappy Camper, Amazon
20 February 2015
  • Summary: Going BACK! and all the cables with it! What you don't know up front is that this card will only drive 6 Displayport inputs. If you want to drive VGA, DVI or even HDMI inputs then you will have to purchase another $150 in active converters plus cables... I can get a better card for that much money. This card couldn't keep up with rapid movements of Excel spreadsheets anyway, so....GOING BACK!

Great video card!

DMc, Amazon
21 December 2014
  • Summary: Be sure your motherboard has adequate space to accomodate this video card as it is BIG. I had to alter my heat sink cover in order to make it fit. If you plan to run multiple monitors (up to 6) you MUST purchase a VisionTek Active Mini Display Port to HDMI dongle cable (900636) for each monitor connection. Be sure to budget an extra $100-$150 in your budget for these Active dongle cable connectors as they do not come with the graphics card.

Good workhorse

bigmikeonline "bigmikeonline", Amazon
17 December 2014
  • Summary: OK, I just connected the six monitors as planned, and nairy a huff! Nice product, software is useful too. I have another desktop manager (Display Fusion), so I'm not using nearly all the software is capable of. I'm not a gamer, I needed to drive a massive desktop for work, so look elsewhere for reviews of how this performs in gaming mode.

Great card, but a few issues

Matt Devine, Amazon
19 October 2014
  • Summary: This is a great graphics card! It was fairly easy to set up, except the drivers have to be installed from the Internet, not the CD, and except that, it was good. I can run almost any game on the market at high to Ultra settings with pretty high FPS. I would recommend this for gaming and someone who needs a high-powered graphics card for AutoCAD or other programs like that.

Little known tip

Nanette G., Newegg
23 August 2014
  • Pros: A card that can run 6 monitors is awesome, if done right...
  • Cons: I read in a review for an older model of this same card, that greater than 3 monitors at once requires an ACTIVE adapter, and that the adapters the card comes with are PASSIVE, meaning you have to buy ACTIVE adapters. These ones (at the link) are recommended: http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100017680%2050001180%2040003048&IsNodeId=1&SubCategory=3048&Manufactory=1180&SpeTabStoreType=131

Wish it came with more cables

RainierRandy, Amazon
7 June 2014
  • Summary: Only two cables come with this. It looked like these were HDMI ports to me, but they aren't. You are probably best off getting DVI cables and an adapter to go from the mini display ports to DVI. I have this hooked to five monitors for a flight simulator and it works really well for this. I wish that it came with all the cables you need, just make sure to budget that into your costs when you buy this.
