Summary: Bought this Zotac graphic card back in July 2011, Mail in Rebate actually arrived in 3 months from date of purchase, the instructions were not that clear and after mailing it in, I contacted mail-in-rebate customer service and the agent who responded was extremely helpful.
Pros: Price after mail-in-rebate. Works well with Dual display (PC Monitor and Plasma HDTV). Performance is great.
Summary: for not knowing much about pc and admiting it but idk how people thought that this had 2 hdmi port i know by the picture that it didnt the disply port is little bit bigger then the hdmi port.
Pros: it a good video card for it price runs great on my low budget build and runs alot better the my xfx low pro gforce 9500gt gddr2 1gb. works great for gaming got it running crysis 1&2 and the newest call of duty modern warfare 3 with no flaws so far. dvi hdmi work great
Cons: non so far besides i havent found out fully what the display port used for yet
Summary: Sticking with bigger name brands next time. Should have just stuck with i3 processing to begin with and used smaller case for my HTPC. Cheaper and better quality. Video actually looks better using i3 only than the Zotac.
Pros: Cheap cost.
Cons: You get what you pay for. Worked fine for about 4 months. Now getting frequent flickering on screen when watching video. Updated drivers via Zotac site and ended up with black screen with audio only. Removed card and videos are working great again (using Intel i3 onboard HD3000).
Summary: The performance is adequate for the price, when the card goes on sale again I plan on buying another one and SLI them together. Nvidia rocks!
Pros: I know you probably shouldn't review a graphics card purely on the rebate but I just want to note it. I never expected the rebate to come after all the reviews I read and the time that went by but it actually did. In that case I highly recommend this card, it is a great card for the price. It wil...
Summary: A single card can run most games including Battlefield 3 at 1080p with Ultra settings with multisampling at 0. In SLI mode handles 4x well
Pros: I have been running two in SLI mode since February.
Cons: Had to send one back because i was having issues with it crashing my computer. This took place about 5-6 months after purchased. Zotac was very friendly and replaced the card. I only had to pay for shipping to them
Summary: According to my temp. gauge on my case this card idles around 86 degrees and maxes out around 130 degrees in game. It works great but I'm gonna install some fans around the card and some heatsinks on the card to help ensure that it doesn't get too hot.
Pros: I have always trusted NVidia to get the job done right and their cards have always pulled through for me. I'm using the HDMI output and playing games at max settings on my 32" TV and there is no lag and no issues.
