I finally saved enough to add this graphics card to my ongoing rebuild of my computer (mobo, cpu, ram, etc.). Packaging was carefully thought out to (being funny) withstand a small nuclear war, though very easy to open. Installation was very easy (i did refer to the instructions note: evga, can you please provide instructions one doesn't need a magnifying glass to read?). I did have some minor issues uploading the drivers (no cd with the card), but did get them installed. My reasoning for this card (aside from rebuilding/upgrading my computer) is so that i can take full advantage of my 43" 4k uhd tv as a monitor. The results are pretty significant. I'm using only the hdmi (with a new, high quality hdmi cable).Results: i can now watch full 4k uhd content from available sources without the cyphering i was experiencing with my 8400. I do see some flickering in the picture but, for now, will attribute that to causes that are not the fault of the card (i have a "laundry list" of things i need to check/adjust). Just for "grins and giggles (i'm not a gamer), i did a generic benchmark with the 8400, then with the 1050. The 1050 raised the benchmark by 700 points.Before i decided on this card, i made a couple of calls to evga for advice. My calls were respond almost immediately, and the reps were friendly and very helpful.For reference, my build is an antec mid atx, 500w p/s, asus m5a99fx pro, amd 8350 with wraith cooler, 8gb kingston hyperx 1866 ram, and win7 64 ultimate. I expect to add an ssd, upgrade my hdd to a new 2tb, and add a new optical reader shortly, which will complete my build/upgrade.
