Works well for an older card, can play a lot of last years AAA games at 1080, but with lower graphics settings


Poor

too slow for recent games even at resolutions lower than 1080p on minimum settings

I feel like it's a new gpu, so hard to believe that it's from 2012, wow!

It still works so that is beutifull.

This looks like one of the overall best cards from the 600 series and it's only $80-90 on EBay right now.

The 3gb version still holds it ground with C2Q and some Phenom II cpu's ;)

It was and still is a good GPU, especially for being mid range, but it's beginning to reach the end of it's lifetime where it starts to be kicked off games into the lower settings. However if you still use this GPU you should plan on upgrading in 2020 or 2021 as it will no longer be suitable for gaming especially on AAA titles where they have gotten very, very demanding. It's older sibling, the GTX 660-Ti, on the other hand was a better buy back in the day as it still partially performs reasonably well today.
