My EVGA model stood up to abuse for 5 years. I skip most of the AAAs, but it handled everything I tried to play at 1080p, 60 fps, never the bare minimum settings. Ran FFXIV this way at near max settings with shadows turned down. Did Overwatch with lowish but not potato settings at a consistent 110+ FPS. You'll see it very commonly listed as a minimum spec in modern games, which means it's on its way out. But it's still hanging on and is a great choice for playing older releases if you can find one cheap.

My first graphics card, has just recently been replaced by a GTX 1070. It held up fine for my needs even at 1440P. I mostly play FPS', and I didn't even have to play on total potato settings. Most of my time with it was spent at 1600x900, though.

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

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 ;)
