Summary: I play Skyrim at max resolution with more than 100 mods, ENB, SSAO, FXAA, max terrain distance, depth of field, 2k+ textures minimum, max shadows. It's easily one of the best looking and most graphically intensive games every created, this video card makes it happen. The rest of my system is mediocre at best, but I run this game at 40+ fps. My processor blows (3 1/2 years old 2.6ghz intel dual-core) and Skyrim still runs great because this card is such a beast.
Summary: I got this under the suggestion of my fiance when i got my new comp. I usually buy budget cards but got this one since it was better and not much more expensive. He runs the same card and hes quite happy with it as well. I will be buying another for my sister inlaws comp soon.
Summary: Cons It's a bit bulky and takes up space, so i had some issues installing it at first Pros: it runs games extremely well, the 2gb of ram really helps with higher resolutions, it's cheap considering it's performance, it has pretty low power requirements, the dual fans are effective in keeping it cool, comes with some molex connectors. I recommend this to anyone who wants to play on pc, but doesn't want to break the bank.
Summary: I upgraded from a 3-year old GTX 460, but I have a mid-tower case, so I’m limited in the length of the video card, and this one fits with room to spare. The 460 would heat up the case somewhat, especially the Northbridge. It even forced an auto-shutdown once when I was lax in keeping the vents/fans clean. The new card runs much cooler. I’ve had it about 5 weeks, and the hottest the Northbridge has gotten is about 64 C after gaming for 4 hours.
Summary: All in all a very good purchase have enjoyed being able to max or nearly max my games out with good FPS. Besides for the con (which is dealt with the silicon lottery)I have really enjoyed the card will definitely be getting another one when my budget allows me to
Pros: Small, Cheap
Cons: can't get any OC on it with out my games crashing
Summary: I put this in a system I built for my son's friend. Install is easy and drivers loaded flawlessly from the included CD. Games run at high settings smoothly and the card runs cool. A great card for the money.
