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. I get lines and test patters across screen at boot-up. Even at bios screen when card is in VESA mode.
Summary: Exactly as described and works perfectly. I've got it outputting to 3 monitors currently, and haven't had it do any kind of 3D anything yet. I bought it to use in my work machine so that I could easily have more monitors. It was a good price and can run 4 displays at once, so I decided to give it a try. I haven't noticed any kind of tearing in videos yet, and any kind of 2D drawing it does works perfectly.
Summary: I picked this because of the four monitor connections, 2 HDMI and 2 DVI, so if you need DisplayPort look elsewhere. But specs and reviews say it's one of the highest overclocks. I can't give a game review but as a tech, designer and engineer it looks like good electronics. 2. I'm adding this to say I've now bench-marked this card and it's all true.
Summary: I installed this card on a fresh Windows 7 64 bit installation. The first thing I noticed was that my monitor would not wake up from sleep although the computer did. Later, I noticed that one time out of three the video would not come on after a cold start until after the second or third try. I researched this problem extensively, played with quite a few suggested settings and did a clean install of the drivers three times. Nothing worked.
