    that gpu might not even work with your build , it might be only for hp systems , but i can't tell as i never used one of these
  5. I have seen this card working in different cpu rather than HP systems :( i am sooooooooo confused..

    it's not the cpu that matters , it's the motherboard , and it only might work with an hp motherboard
  7. Yeap thats an issue toooo......:(
  8. And 'worth buying' also relates to how much you are getting it for.

    At that ebay price, no.
    If you're getting it for $75, yes.

    Getting it for 75 bucks is a greaaat deal but i don't think that he can get it at that price , even at a local store
  10. No i mean does it perform as good as original nvidia oem card?or HP is bad?

    Right. But as he has not said 'how much'....."is it worth it" is completely unknown.
  12. yep man im in sri Lanka and it would cost me approx.133$

    It's not gonna perform as well , it has 1.5GB of vram compared to 2GB for the original , and maybe its clocked lower so no it won't
  14. but according to some forums Gtx 660 oem is better than retail gtx 660...

    that's what i'm saying , hp's one isn't as good as original 660's , it's probably a low profile gpu
  16. It has all the specs of original 660 oems..that's what bother me..has the same number of cudas..same clock etc............

    I prefer not buying HP stuff anymore , i had lots of hp crap and they would all start overheating , bsod'ing etc till i decided to build pcs myself
  18. :D i should think twice then......
  19. Best answer
    A gpu is a gpu. As long as the connections are the same, it will work on a different mobo. It makes no difference the brand. It's an add-on card. If the specs are correct then it will perform similar to a reference card as it won't have the tweaks that 3rdparty manufactures use.

    What you may find however, is that the 600Fh, was originally intended as a 2Gb card, and has one of its memory chips either absent or disabled in an effort to keep the 660 title yet cut manufacturing costs for a bulk company.
  20. you mean i will be unable to overclock this card using msi afterburner,evga precision etc.?
  21. It will OC the same as any other gpu, it all will all depend on the quality if the card components. It's possible to have 2 identical gpus and have 1 OC 100MHz higher than the other and still retain stability. But as it is a nvidia board manufactured specifically for HP, is not expect to get much OC performance from it, in order to keep costs down, they won't be using the very best binned IC chips etc, unlike the ones Evga, Asus, MSI buy for their versions which usually get factory OC to start with
