Served me decently for a while, but running 2 monitors off of it became impossible. The card simply wasn't built for multi monitors like they are now.

I still have this, but it doesn't get much use. It hasn't aged very well. I wish I had bought an AMD Radeon HD 7970 instead of the GTX 680 back in the day.

My first serious GPU, so rating is biased. But it performs well even though old and a little expensive.
