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.
