Fan is annoying and it runs hot/stutters in benchmarks within 20 seconds
21 January 2014
Summary: This video card is fairly powerful for 2013, and I'll probably keep it for another 2 years, but it runs loud and gets hot fast. It also down-clocks often within 15 seconds of starting a high frame rate game, so I have to frame limit my games in order to keep the temps and stuttering (from continuous down and up clocking) at acceptable levels. It also has a tendency to change its fan speed depending on very slight changes in system load.
Summary: I paid ~200 dollars for this card a couple of months ago to give my computer some more umph for gaming. This card is now paired with an i5-3750k and has no trouble running any game I throw at it. Most games are smooth at MAX settings, but some of the more graphic intensive titles do require a little bit of "fine tuning" to graphics settings to smooth out the gameplay. I'm currently enjoying Borderlands 2 with settings maxed out at 1920x1080 and FPS set to "smooth".
Summary: Well, I picked this card up with a little hesitation to finish off my gaming pc to enable an sli array. I could not match up my original card as it was no longer made. The specs on this card were identical though. I poped it into the second pci express 16 slot, installed the sli bridge ribbon connector, plugged everything back in and once windows was up it saw the new hardware and installed the driver. Used Nvidia control panel to enable the sli and it works perfectly.
Summary: This card is extremely powerful (as of 2012), but it's very audible even at idle. This is not necessary for a video card. My last one (Sapphire 4850) wasn't and the one I ended up getting now (Asus 550ti) isn't either.
Summary: Drop in replacement for my previous card. East install. Pulled down drivers and was up and running in a few minutes. It's been running quieter than my previous card. I run on max settings typically, and can't complain about any performance (LfD2 is my shooter, TWSh2 is my primary strategy game).
Summary: Purchased this card for son's system, after extensive research, finally choose this one. The Price at 2 bills was on the mark, with top ten rating was even better. The card works just as it should, there is not a game my son plays that if won't handle at the highest settings. Am picky, the fan on my card does have a bit of a pitch, not a deal breaker. The rebate did give us some problems, thus the minus a star. However, amazon was great and made things right.
Summary: I am very impressed with what you get for the price. Still very powerful even though its not the highest end graphics you can get (which cost you an arm and a leg). If you are building a gaming pc, this card should deliver the performance you need out the gate and if its not enough, buy 2 and SLI.
Summary: I bought this card and it worked great for about a day. Unfortunately, it seems to have stopped working altogether. Going to RMA with either Amazon or Zotac themselves. Whichever is quicker or whichever the process requires.
Summary: I bought this card about a month ago and it runs pretty good. It doesn't get too hot and when playing higher tier games (like Battlefield 3) it gets a little bit loud but not too much. I upgraded from a Radeon 6850 and it makes a world of difference. The only caveat is that I had to manually raise the voltage from 1.00 to 1.25 due to the manufacturer not upping the voltage after overclocking it. Before doing this, the card would crash on DirectX 11 games.
