Summary: nice card runs every game i play full tilt except i had an issue on arma 2 with the dayz mod i learned going to nvidia control panel and adjusting the power managment option for maximum performance helped. Friendly reminder to those who may be experiencing lag with some high end nvidia cards, anyways cards at 55% fan speed suppossidly runnig really hot.
Pros: runs quiet, fast, good price i feel for benchmarks and considering i was planning to get a 750 ti instead i think the extra cash was worth it, stable drivers (afterthought)
Cons: only con i can think of, and this may be my own fault is card runs hot im sitting here currently playing civilization 5 complete collection top notch and gpu diode is at 67c 153 f and gpu vram is at 89c 192f. I am not sure if aida is reading it wrong or not but i dont see how this card is that hot and aida says fan speed is at 55%, I just felt the card and it feels hot but not burning hot, i just wish there was an easy way to manually control the fan speed better or s...
Summary: I installed this in my Hackintosh. Kepler based cards do not require any configuration. Runs my gaming flawlessly on both Mac and Windows. NOTE: There is a bug OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) that causes the GPU fans to spin up and maintain 100% fan speed. Definitely one of the best Value-performance combinations available today.
Pros: - Works as advertised; amazing value, - Zero config for Hackintosh
Cons: - None really, - Odd bug in OS X 10.9 (Mavericks) keeps the fans throttled at 100%
Summary: Runs cool and Quiet, looks sexy, made by ASUS, plays everything at 1080p on high/ultra at 30+ FPS (all you need really) I actually bought this for my HTPC I got it on sale for $179.99 and after MIR it was 159.99 and came with AC4 and Splinter Cell ($120 worth at the time) I was going to buy AC4 anyways so in my head I just subtracted another $60 from the $159.99 and it was like getting it for $100, couldn't be more happy even though its total overkill for my HTPC lol but...
Pros: Plays all games at 1080p with High/Ultra settings at 30+ fps, all you will need for now.
Summary: This was purchased as an upgrade to a 5770, and what a difference, indeed! It runs much cooler than the 5770 and is fairly quiet even when the fans are at full rpm. It's a nice looking unit, but it is pretty large, so I would recommend taking measurements before purchasing. I have a full size ATX case and it fits like a glove.
Summary: Snagged this one for ~$180 (not including the $20 rebate) during one of the surprise specials. This card replaced an old Nvidia 9600xt that was in a 2 year old build with an i5 2500k proc (overclocked). So now there's new life and then some in my 2+ year old build for gaming. I'm a casual gamer so a video card like this is great. Able to run most games at or close to their highest settings at 1980 X 1200 for playable frame-rates.
Pros: Fantastic value for a great video card under $200. Runs cool & quiet.
Cons: Not really a con but I can see that this card can be a little to large/long for some builds.
Summary: Bought it to replace radeon 7770. I also had a AMD FX 4170 paired with my radeon. kept getting errors and bluescreens and after hours upon hours of troubleshooting decided to finally go with a new card. BEST IDEA EVER! Decided on this card for several reasons, i love ASUS (always great quality), good reviews on multiple sources, cant beat the price with NCIX sale - MIR - and Two free games. SOLD.
Summary: Great card. Super quiet and cool and runs superbly. I can run most things on max 1920x1200 with no issues. The other good thing is the price. There are often sales for this card that make it cheaper than others. Note, though, this card is fairly large. My friend got one in an antec 300 just barely.
Summary: The card is amazing for its price. Going to be getting another very soon and run them in SLI. I play all games maximum settings with the exception of anti-aliasing, usually this is turned off completely. Running BF4 at 50+ fps Ultra with AA off, coupled with an i5-3570k. This goes on sale ALL the time, it can go as low as $159 with rebates. Highly recommended, you won't regret it.
