Experience: 5 Months
Fast and very quiet
Potential graphic issues
This card has been good and I'm impressed with the speed. I play at 1600x900. In terms of the feeling I have for the stability, I'd say it's pretty good but doesn't leave me knowing this is a flawless product. Some games I've played have had strange graphical anomalies but otherwise it has been good. I'm not sure another card from this range would be without these anomalies, I'd assume or hope so, but not 100% sure. I may not buy another product like this from Gigabyte again because of this problem, but I'm at least happy with what this Nvidia part has provided.

I give this product 3 stars instead of 4 because I'm not sure I'd buy again because of graphic issues I've experienced that don't seem to appear on a laptop using integrated video. It is good otherwise and the speed has been impressive and satisfying.

Great price, good value for mid-range graphics, nice big fan to keep it cool and quiet, comes with a power adapter for the card to use with molex connectors.. nice touch!
None, unless you expect this card to compete with higher level cards.
I bought this card to provide my brother's system with something that can play some older games like Bioshock and Prototype *x-mas present).. for $105 after rebate, this is a solid card.. considering it also features downloads of Just Cause 2 and Mafia 2, these are another two games that my bro may like to play using this card!

Wouldn't consider this card to be high end at all based on benchmarks I've seen, but playing on a monitor at 1680x1050 or lower should be no problem for it.. especially if the games are a bit older.

Great deal by NCIX! I'm sure this will be a great investment and my bro will get tons of enjoyment out of itMerry xmas!!

AMAZING card, works very well with the latest games.
Mine fried after 5 days of receiving it.
Overall, its an amazing card, but my personally fried after 5 days of receiving it. BUT the customer service is AMAZING and they were very informative, and I'll have my replacement of this card sometime around xmas, in the mean time i have a gt 430 in as a backup, also very good card, but i cant wait to get this one back in!!!

Good Price
None so far
Just wanted a newer card for my old system.This card is a good price.Also it does work with my Asus P5K mother board.In other
word it backward compatible to PCIe 1.Seems to be running smooth
at 1920*1080.Way higher than my old card.The huge fan is much
quieter than my old card which buzzed when starting.

cheap and overlock.
i get this card last week. the value is great. Run for STARCRAFT II and WOW, replace my geforce 9800GT. IF u wanna get a game card and good price, should choose this one

Experience: 2 Months
Low energy consumption, good price to performance ratio
not for hardcore gamers
The card is exactly what I needed as I did not want to spend too much upgrading an old machine.. It is great for playing most games and is way more quiet then my 8800 GTX I am replacing.

Price (even more so when on sale), very quiet, Gygabyte: nice service, never failed a mail rebate, got Dugeon Siege 3 with it.

Bought this card for my daughter's system (AM3). She plays on a 22 inches monitor so this card is more than adequate for her needs. Upgraded from a 7900GT because she is beginning to play more demanding and recent games (shooters, simulation and racing). She loves it and so does dad; plus i got Dungeon Siege 3. : ). For the price this is the way to go for such a system.
