I have a GeForce GT 555M in my laptop with 1GB GDDR5RAM and it is a really awesome working card until it heats up so protect for heat.

well, I reckon only time will tell. Plug it in, and if it works and does what you need it to, and lasts for awhile then yes its a good card. If it doesnt do any of those three (defective, not powerful enough or doesnt last very long) then no. This is one of those things thats hard to tell just from the card type-it all depends on what you plan on doing with it. Theres not necessarily a "good" card or "bad" card out there, its all dependent mainly on preference and what its used for.
