Over all, great card.
Jack Brown
Mostly, it's a great card that can play most of your games at max settings without any issues at all.

I would still highly recommend buying one bigger faster card over going sLI right out of the box.

This was my 2nd attempt at purchasing a Good Video Card for my son's "Excalibur" Desktop that I had just finished building for him for his games, video & Picturing editing, and of course his academic pursuits. The 1st Video Card I brought for my son's Excalibur Rig (A GIGABYTE Radeon HD 6450 1GB DDR3 DVI-I / D-Sub / HDMI Low Profile Graphics Card, GV-R645OC-1GI ) while did well with the 2nd and 3rd requirements the card fell short in the 1st requirement for his games, especially with video intensive games like Star Wars: The Force Unleashed which would show seriously lagging durring the more intense action parts of the game. Plus the Windows 7 Index score was almost the same as my wifes ATI 4650HD Video Card in her Desktop which was 5.0 for Windows Aero and 6.3 (out of a possible 7.9) for Gaming Graphics.

So I did some heavy research and decided to look at the EVGA Cards (with the Nvidia chipsets)on what I heard about from thier reputation and see if I could find a serious Gaming Video Card without necessarily breaking the bank. So after looking at the different EVGA Cards between the $100 to $200 dollar range I finally decided to go with this model EVGA Card on the merits of the reviews (which were just over 4 and 1/2 stars at the time of purchase) and made the plung hoping I would not regret it (Like I did with the 1st Video Card)and it turns out I didn't.

While the installation was fairly easy and without incident please be advised of the following...
1. This is no small card, you will need to 2 available pci/pci-e slots available in your tower (Just 1 pci-e 16x slot to plug it in).
2.

The video card was easy to install. Was up and running in just a matter of moments. I already had the current drivers for the card, so the swap was very easy.

The price was quite nice for 2gb of on board video ram. Only thing that I had a problem with was the precision software from EVGA. Really don't see the point. The themes are cumbersome. Over all, great card. Nice upgrade from the gt430.

Upgraded to this card about a week ago. Mostly, it's a great card that can play most of your games at max settings without any issues at all. However, this card is not the top of the line available right now. For extremely graphically intense games, you might have to settle for moderate settings. The card will still handle those games just fine, but if you don't want to sacrifice game performance you will probably have to keep the settings at a reasonable level. Overall, a great card for the price. Recommended for people on a budget that still wants a solid card. Cheaper cards just can't handle the load this card can and to get noticeably better performance over this one, you'd have to drop at least another hundred or more.

That being said, I did have a handful of issues but they seem to have cleared up. These are the reasons the card did not get 5 stars. First of all, when playing the game League of Legends (which is not graphically intense at all) I had an issue where my screen froze and at one point even went black for a few seconds. This occurrence only happened once and has since seemingly have been fixed. Second, when playing Portal 2, I had an instance where when there was a lot of gel flowing on the screen, I would get minor flickering. There was only 1 part in the entire game this was apparent that had enough flowing gel to cause the issue. Third, and this was the worst scenario, my screen would randomly go black and my computer would freeze when simply browsing the internet, not even in a game or anything. This happened a total of 4 times, so it wasn't a simple fluke.

Like I said, I believe this issues have been alleviated since they last happened.

The EVGA GTX 550 Ti is a very good card but it has some pretty serious short comings. It is one version shy of making the recommended graphics card for modern games like BF3 and for good reason. Though for a price difference of about $50-100 it makes a good runner up if you can accommodate it.

The performance of the card is very good, it can run BF3 on high and ultra high settings without so much as dropping a frame but its biggest drawback is that it heats up WAY to fast. Using the high settings on BF3 as a benchmark it gets up to between 58-60º C under the game load of DX11 shaders and high geometry. Under idle loads of windows 7 and the Areo desktop the temps sit between 35-40º C for everyday use, very cool running and spells a long service life if you don't put it under strain but thats not what you, as the consumer, are buying this card for.

The problem with this card is that it is already pushed to the limit out of the box. It's a factory overclocked card that boasts a number of performance bumps compared to earlier versions using the same or similar hardware with more capacity, such as memory and the actual GPU chip.

It comes with an over clocking software but I would highly recommend NOT using it because cranking up the settings will make it run hotter and there by shorten its life span though a benefit of having the OC software installed is that you have access to the fan speed controls which can be adjusted accordingly for your performance and possibly keep it from over heating rite off the bat.

I've managed to play on the card for a few hours at a time on the high settings of BF3 however I need to mention that after a while the card becomes unstable usually at the 60º mark.
