This GPU would of received 5 stars, however I was quite disappointed in some aspects.

Let me go over the positives about this card first. I have had this card for 1 year and it still is awesome. It can battlefield4 on medium graphics, some games on ultra, but at 15-20 fps. Not bad, but not smooth. It can play most of Valves open source games on highest graphics without any issues. So if you're looking for a cheap card without worrying too much about the graphics, then get this card! You get Nvidia GeForce which gives you shadow play, this GPU can run ShadowPlay like a beast! Very happy with its performance. Runs at 30C idle (86F) and it runs about 60C under load. It is very silent during games. I think most of my noise comes from my CPU fan.

Negatives, this card would of got 5 stars. However quite disappointed in a game which I play loads. Not sure what the issue is, drivers, the card of the game. However, I cannot play Mount and Blade Warband on high graphics. I can only play it on lowest and still get some lag.

In conclusion I recommend this card, despite my personal issue. Had it for a year but sadly replacing it for R9 280X by Sapphire. However, if you're looking for a Nvidia card. Always go to Evga first. Very pricey, but you get what you pay for!

My pc spec:
AMD Phenom X6 1045t
8 GB Memory (Dual Channel)
400W by Silverstone PSU
750GB SS/HD
And my GTX 650 2GB SC

bought this to replace a nvidia gtx 550 ti, and i must say say it kicks the s*** out of the 550 =)
the 550 was struggling with torchlight 2 game i play, this 650 just storms through it with ease. my only bit of grief is that the built in hdmi socket is a mini not a standard size, so now have to buy a new cable to use the cards hdmi capabilities =p

I got a new graphics card to play games my old one just couldn't run even on the lowest settings like the witcher 2, mirrors edge and fallout new Vegas. Withcer 2 only just runs at medium settings with this card at about 23-38 fps, to be honest I was a little bit disappointed by this i know its a very good looking game but it did come out quite a while ago.Mirrors edge ran on my old gpu at medium settings but i couldn't get passed a certain point because the fps dropped to about 8 on every setting my new gpu fixed this and runs on high at about 50 fps but later on through the game it did it again and the fps dropped to another unplayable amount of frames. Fallout new Vegas worked well at over 60 fps on high but I still suffered world lag a lot.These problems could be to do with a different piece of hardware but i doubt it so i can't exactly say its a great card when it hasn't really fixed a lot of my problems with running games.

My PC has the new modern SATA power cables and the adapter that came with this wasn't correct. I had to buy a separate adapter called the SATA serial ATA to molex power cable lead wire adaptor. I'm still looking forward to trying this card out as it can apparently run Battlefield 3 on ultra.

Update 11/04/13: Been using it mainly on ArmA 2 OA and it has been fine. I run at 30 - 40 FPS on ultra and it seems fine. I also only have a i3 3.4Ghz with 4Gb of RAM too. Not big on PC gaming and it works like a charm.

I bought this video card to run 3 monitors concurrently as it claims to do on the box. The requirements state that it will work with windows XP - it does neither!!
I have been dealing with their tech support - but they don't have any answers other than to buy some additional hardware.
This was an expensive waste of time.
The tech support department gave me an email address to contact if I was happy - I wasn't so I emailed 3 weeks ago - Still waiting for a reply
I want either my money back or someone to get it working the way the packaging claims
