Disaster - Cost $320 to repair damage that ocurred right after this card was installed.
on June 8, 2014
Note to begin: The Video Card purchased definitely was compatible with our system specifications but when installed, the computer would no longer boot up. When the new card was removed and the original video card was reinstalled, the sytem still would not boot up. We took the unit to a reputable local computer repair center (with the new video card) and they diagnosed a faulty video card and a fried motherboard. Their work order stated "GTX Video card is non functional. Motherboard is nonfunctional, probably due to installation of faulty video card."
So, the $200 viedo card purchase resulted in the need to purchase a new card from the computer repair shop as well as a new motherboard. Total repair cost on top of the new video card and installation - $320. Too bad I tried to save some $$$ with this card.
