Summary: Picked up this card at the end of summer to replace my Radeon HD5450 - what a difference! This card is able to handle the HD content easily and the occasional game here and there on Steam with ease. I have not had one lock up or driver problem. Some installation advice - use NVIDIA software manager to download and validate latest chipset drivers and updates for the Zotac card. Updates are painless and work behind the scenes.
Summary: Product was well packaged and came with a complete set of cables (DVI and HDMI) as well as a SVGA to DVI adapter and a power adapter. The documentation is outdated and hard to follow, but the product itself is easy to install. Very quiet operation.
Summary: The card does a great job on older games like Battlefield 3. Runs everything on ultra. Scores medium-well on the benchmark tests, the 7850 is a way better card, but you gotta pay. This card on sale is quite good as it scores just a little below its big brother, the GTX 660. Installation is a breeze, keep in mind you need the 6pin power cable to run it . You will need to change bios settings if installing on an HP (disable safe-boot).
Summary: A solid upgrade for high def video playback and a solid gaming card for the casual, non-rabid hardcore gamer. The installation is easy, Nvidia has all of the latest drivers available, and the card isn't 3 feet long, so it actually fits like a normal card. Very quiet operation and not a power hungry monster either. A good upgrade for a slightly older system.
Summary: Bought this card as I was tired of struggling with AMD drivers in linux. The card performs above expectation. I know this is only an entry to mid level card. But I can say that it handles everything I throw at it and then some. Great addition to my linux gaming box. Would recommend this if you are looking for an cost effective option for gaming.
