Summary: This is my first graphics card so me and my boyfriend had some trouble installing it. But after it was installed, it works amazing! All the games are finally working that haven't before. The most recent one i can think of is Witcher, even though its kind of old. But it works so I'm happy and would recommend.
Summary: For a long time I would only buy EVGA GPUs, but that's changed. This Zotac GPU is the tits. Plays any new game I throw at it on either high or ultra settings, while never going above 55 C . Freakin' magical! May end up doing SLI in the future. Pros: - Easy install / actually runs - Stays cool and quiet with stock cooler - Runs new games well - Looks sexy Cons: - Kinda hard getting it out of a PCI slot.
Summary: The bench marker (included with the card) gives me 60FPS.... which for me works just fine. I did have to go to NVidia's web site to get the 64bit drivers for my Windows 8.1 install... It would be nice if Windows HW would find and install this automatically, but that's a minor hassle to getting this card up and going. Take to get the right driver 32 or 64bit... Windows 8.1 is a but picky about that. ScottGeek.
Great cost/benefit ratio, but port design may limit monitor choice

Summary: This Zotac model appeared to be right for me, a sweet spot of price, performance and features - neither too basic, nor unnecessarily powerful and expensive. And it is exactly that. Using the new 28 nm technology, this card is also very compact and will fit in just about any PC case, even mini ones (this may lead you to underestimate its power, as my old HD6850 was much larger, yet it scored less in benchmarks).
Summary: I don't know what to tell you about this video card, I bought it and it's still sitting in the pretty box on top of the peecee. I don't need to put it in until the PNY I bought at the same time burns out. I can tell you one thing, the box is really pretty I've gotten used to seeing it sitting there whenever I walk into the room. I like it there, I'm almost certain it will kick butt should I ever need to use it.
Summary: Got it, plugged it in, downloaded the stuff on the CD and played. Games these days NEED more than one Gig of onboard memory to maintain their speed, largely because the game makers are making their games more draw intensive than before. I HAD a 650 std 1gig and it just couldn't cut it at anything higher than medium with water effects, lighting, particles, etc. set at Low levels. Draw distance WAS 120. It tended to overload and crash, too.
