1 out of 5 eggsGreat card, Big Flaws

Pros: Fast and affordable. Solid build.

Cons: Extremely finicky drivers make a randomly unstable system. You're taking a real chance if you buy this card.

Other Thoughts: I recently purchased this card as a part of my PC upgrade.

Everything has gone well until recently, where I've been getting a number of driver crashes. I'm running Windows 8 so I can't safely go below 306.23 drivers, as those weren't writting for Windows 8 Pro. I had no problems in games but now I can't play WoW in Ultra settings as the card will crash. I have to set it to High, turn SSAO off and set Multisampling to 1x. That is unacceptable for a card of this caliber. Also getting some driver crashes in Skyrim and even Guild Wars, which has not happened before. Ironically, if I enable my CPU's video (Intel HD 4000), the games work fine albeit with more meager settings. I'm not a happy camper and at this point am not sure what I'll do. If I RMA the card to PNY I'll likely get it back unfixed or worse, get someone elses re-certified/refurbished item and have the same problems.

My advice to you is to stay away from this card until Nvidia has figured things out on their end. Go check out the Nvidia forums and pick a card that few are complaining about. Stay away from this card especially if you're a WoW player, you're better off going with a Radeon or alternative class Nvidia card (600 or so).

5 out of 5 eggsSecond one!

Pros: This is my second one of these cards. Purchased the first one back in march. The first one I bought was a different revision than this one. It had a sort of squirrel cage fan on the back that blew air through the HS and out the back. It was extremely long and didn't stay very cool without manually turning up the fan. This one came as pictured. Heat pipes with direct fan on HS and all. I kind of think this version outperforms the other one. Maybe I'm Just crazy, but it seems to run games more smoothly over extended gameplay. Maybe that's due to the better cooling solution. Also the other version didn't have built in HDMI audio. It freaked me out during install to have no audio cable hooked up, then windows boots and plays the annoying welcome sound. Scared me half to death because my tv was at volume level 45 and it was 3 in the morning. Woke the whole house up.

Cons: The two 12v power plugs are in the back. I don't like that. The other card I have that is the same chipset has them on the side. I guess it's just a preference I have. It did make for a nice little PNY GTX 560 emblem on the side for my case window though. Nice way to show off what I have inside to people.

Other Thoughts: Listen up newbies! To all people out there that are going to buy this card just because of the "lifetime" warranty, you may want to head over to the PNY website and actually read the warranty policy. I'll make it easy for you. It's a warranty for the market lifetime of the card, not your lifetime. In other words when the card gets discontinued, the lifetime warranty is void. I think they offer a regular warranty like any other GPU company, probably a year or two. I'm not saying don't buy this thing, it is awesome for a mid to high level card, but know what you're getting into before you buy. Like I always say "DO YOUR HOMEWORK FIRST!".

5 out of 5 eggsThe card with your wallet in mind.

Pros: This is a great first video card, it renders everything perfectly. I play all games full graphics smooth fps, hi-def videos are a breeze. It a very well priced card, and its all you need to great success. If your a gamer and you want a top of the line nothing over 200 buck video card this will get the job done.

Cons: I have found none yet, and I'v had it for 6 months

2 out of 5 eggsRefurb Didn't Last Four Months

Pros: One of the two I ordered was great! Still is. Works like a charm, hence two stars, but I guess I got unlucky...

Cons: One of the cards died after 4 months. Not Newegg's fault at all. Card failure resulted in 1 FPS versus the 10 FPS in the benchmark (Furmark - a tough benchmark, to be sure) with the other card. After emailing with a guy there, said it was past the 90 day warranty and he couldn't do anything. Go figure it had to fail right afterwards.

Other Thoughts: Unfortunately, I don't think I'll be doing business with these guys again. $150 was a lot to pay for a card after having it fail after four months and having the guy tell me that he "couldn't do anything for [me]". 90 day warranty. What a joke.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Amazing performance from a rock solid video card!
Will run all 256 PC games I have in beautiful full resolution no problems.

Cons: None at this price and performance level.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this card for two reasons. PC Gaming and Video editing. It does both beautifully.

You can't go wrong at this price! This card replaced my older NvIDIA 8800gts that I paid $450 dollars for 5 years ago. Now this GTX560 card for $189 replaced it and it ROCKS! No I'm not being paid to say this. I'm VERY happy with the card and the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Handles most everything with ease. Battlefield3 is rendered beautifully with no problems even when bullets are flying and buildings are exploding all around, no slowdowns.

Bare, unboxed card survived falling off the table and onto the floor when my cat jumped up and knocked it off the table during the build. Installed and runs fine. Your results with cats may vary.

The card is different than the one pictured (until Newegg updates or PNY changes stock). The card is an inch or so longer than the specs state because it has a "squirrel cage"/turbine fan on the end.

Maybe it uses the new Vapor Chamber heatsink technology like the high-end GTX5xx cards? *maybe*

It's same design as the 560 in the Battlefield3 Bundle, Newegg item#N82E16814133433 (which makes sense so they can save $$ by not selling 2 versions of the same card)

The card is just nearly as long as my DP67BGB3 ATX motherboard is wide, so as long as your drive bays don't hang over the MB you should be fine.

Cons: The Pink Screen of Death is *NOT* a problem with the card hardware, just some driver releases are glitchy. The Pink Screen failure has been documented on the forums extensively, though Nvidia would rather sweep it under the rug until it's solved (hopefully) in the next driver release.

What happens is the driver errors and fails and then has to be recovered by Windows. Windows7 has a little pop up box from the task bar that states "Nvidia driver failed and was recovered."

Allegedly it may or may not be a problem with Hardware Acceleration in Flash Video.

The easy fix for this is to use a different driver. I had the issue with the latest driver release (it shows up on both beta and certified releases). I uninstalled the problem driver version and downloaded Certified (WHQL) Driver v295.73. No more pink screens since then (been about a month now).

So as of the time of this writing, v295.73 is the latest driver that WORKS for me with NO glitches, pink screens, or problems

Other Thoughts: I downloaded the latest version of Nvidia System Tools to create a custom cooling fan load profile. Before, it ran sustained Battlefield3 gaming at 70C on 40% fan. Now it runs at 60C with 70% fan (that's ~20 degrees ferenheit lower) and fan speed spins up so that it never really touches 75C when being worked hard.

Nvidia specs say that it can handle up to 99C, but I'm paranoid about that.

You can also use Nvidia System Tools to overclock but I haven't seen the need to do that. Everything is already super-shiny. (It looks like voltage is locked so you can't go too crazy anyway)

Idles at 33C

All my temp values are real temp, not that ▲T value (difference between surface and ambient) that some people use to make it sound lower.

I don't run Folding@Home so I can't vouch for load temps when running that beast.

2 out of 5 eggsWake Up Nvidia!

Pros: Well it plays games: I would have loved to have given this card 5 eggs, but I wish new egg had 1.5 eggs because 2 is a little high. Let me explain: The graphics are awesome. Renderings are clear, movement is fluid, view distance is far. This card has made me re-build my PC, Im now waiting for a whole new build to go around this card. However, for those with small processors who complain that they cant get good performance even on LOW SETTINGS, thats the reason. Turn your settings up higher, not lower. Give the card something to do so the tiny CPU you have can keep up with it. Overall Im pretty happy with this card, but then the only reason I bought it was because my 240GT kept crashing during flash video......

Cons: ......WOW! This card keeps crashing during Flash Video!~ I have a friend who JUST bought a GTX8800.....Keeps crashing during flash video! Tried to get hold of NVIDIA about this, went to their website and got their email address and wrote them about it......email was returned (No such address?.....thats just B f S!) I went to the forums and EV1 is complaining about this.....does NVIDIA pipe in and give a response? NOPE. If NVIDIA and ADOBE dont get their S# !T together soon, I WILL BE switching to ATI. The last time I switched (from ATI to NVIDIA) I didnt come back to even look at ATI for 8 years or more. Well Im looking at them now! I dont care if its NVIDIA's problem or ADOBE's problem, Im NOT going to pay these high prices for a card that I can ONLY play games on and cant watch Movies or Videos on. Thats not going to happen. And when I sell my card(s) used, thats gonna be one less sale that NVIDIA gets, I wonder if they have thought about it that way?

Other Thoughts: Im going to wait a few months (Ive been waiting for more than a year and a half already) for someone to do something about this, then Im going to be replacing the card in my NEW build with an ATI card. The whole flash thing seems to be a cr *ap shoot, you may get an NVIDIA card that crashes, you may not.......but for close to $200....... should I need to even take that chance.
"Nvidia, get it fixed or lower the prices on your messed up cards! Im sick of trying to be an NVIDIA FAN with no support from the company that I love!"
