Pros: It was the right card at the right time for a HTPC build and had worked flawlessly until 3-4 months ago
Cons: I don't really have any cons except that it stopped working without warning or apparent cause. My main concern is now having to deal with Zotac tech support which based on a past experience with a motherboard is something I do not look forward to
Summary: Excellent card for the money. I have an older computer and didn't want to spend big money on something I could not take full advantage of, but at the same time didn't want to sell my machine short. The Zotac (Excellent Brand) GTX - 650 was just what I needed.
Pros: everything works. forgot to bend some little crock-blocker on the i/o shield so i booted up for the first time directly off the card without installing the driver first. ever since then seems to work pretty well. tried messing around with oc-ing it; gave up. plays black ops 2 at a near constant 5...
Cons: the fan is the quite, but not silent. cant turn the fan speed down below 16%
Summary: I bought this used elsewhere; I buy from Newegg all the time. I like getting a good deal. This is the upgrade you want if you want to be able to casual-game with your older machine - or even a newer machine.
Pros: It looks great, low power needs make it ideal for upgrade of an otherwise "stock" computer. Most store-bought average desktops will need no power supply upgrade for this card, I can now play WoW and War Thunder on a 2006 machine with an AMD Athlon x 2 5000+ CPU and a 350 watt PSU. Gets 50+ FPS wi...
Summary: I usually don't have video card failures. I don't overclock them, keep them clean, and keep good quality power supplies installed when my needs change or they get older. I have some cards that are 14 years old and still work. My first ever Zotac product failed at 6 months.
