"-If you have owned a Galaxy product, tell us about it."
A few years back I was in the market for a Nvidia card with hdmi out for my new Vizio LCD HD TV. At the time I had a 8800gt with a s-video out that was just not getting the job done.
I also was running 700 watt Marantz 7.1 surround reciever.
My desktop monitor was a Sony 19" Trinitron.
In short I bought a Galaxy gtx260 (216). In fact it was this one....http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6814162039- What do you like about Galaxy cards?
Although I can't speak for all Galaxy cards ,I will speak on the Galaxy gtx260 that I had personal experience with.
At the time of purchase I needed a specific card for my needs and found it in the above Galaxy gtx260.
2. digital audio out to motherboard then to my Marantz 7.1 reciever.
3. DVI to vga adapter for my Sony monitor.
4. 6 pin to 4 pin psu connector. ( I had a Enermax psu with 1 6 pin pci-e connector)
5. Something that will not need too much psu power, but will perform well in games.
In short what I liked about my Galaxy card is it came with all my needs in one package. Name the most important things that you consider when you buy a graphics card
1. performance and overclockability
2. driver stability and compatibility
4. cooling, noise, power requirements, and build quality of card
5. warranty, customer service. (only noobs need tech service and I never keep a card more then a year or 2)
6. Physical looks of the card How did you decide on your current video card?
My current card is a cherry picked gtx460 1gb that I picked up for the amazing price of 170$ shipped a few months back.
It met or exceeded every consideration in the above "most important things you consider" question.
In closing, I'd like to say the one thing about Galaxy video cards that stands out for me, is there ability to push the design envelope. The close, long standing, good relationship with Nvidia does mean something. It means your more likely to recieve a top notch product. It also helps that they have been in the video card business since 1994.
Dual gts250 card, dual gtx460/470/560 prototypes. These types of inovated designs gave me feeling of trust.
The kind of trust that says "this company is not cutting corners" they want my business, and they are trying to wow me with a new inovated design.
I think they are moving in the right direction with the dual fan gtx 560. To be honest, the gtx460 removable fan turned me off.
I mean look at this dual fan Galaxy gtx560, it looks like its saying "I'll chew Crysis up and spit it out". http://news.softpedia.com/newsImage/Gal ... -Ti-2.jpg/
