Pros: Everyone talks about bench marking, over clocking this, that...forget all that tech savvy boring stuff that we all know about.. What matters most is this card can handle BF4 with everything maxed out on ultra, VSYNC on, and a slight increase in scale resolution at 1080p at 51c and still maintain 60 FPS most of the time.. The card looks awesome, it has a nice aluminum case.. Fans run great, of COURSE if your fans are above 90% your going to hear them.... even though it...
Cons: I wish I bought two even though it's not needed!
Very good gaming video card able to run 2560x1440 dual monitors

Summary: Very good gaming video card able to run 2560x1440 dual monitors, I have had the EVGA 580 GTX, 680 GTX and now the ASUS flavored GTX 780. I mainly chose this design over the EVGA's based on the dual fan and uniquely designed cooling system. It runs extremely quiet under load vs previous EVGA single fan in a closed system ported out the back of the pc.
Summary: Have it for sell. Really does need a backboard. Very quiet. Performance does not match my EVGA 660TI. Better off going twin 600 or 500 series performance. Card designed for Windows 8 and really did not like my environment of Win7 nor my Gigabyte motherboard. Just about every other boot of my machine required a new prolonged discovery of the card. Even with new bios for both the card and motherboard, I could not resolve the issues of booting.
Summary: I was hesitant about spending this much on a graphics card, but I bit the bullet and I'm so glad I did. From the first moment I held it, I could see and feel that it was a quality product built to last. It not only has a backplate, which looks great, helps dissipate heat and protects the card, but it also has a front brace, all which add rigidity and stops the card from sagging.
Summary: I have been an adamant AMD user for over 20 years, never anything against Nvidia or Intel, but they always performed well for me, and fit my budget better. In my latest build, I wanted to shed expense woes and go for what I wanted. Well, i WANTED a 290X card from ASUS but, since they were so overpriced or impossible to find, I found this gem instead.
Summary: This model of the GTX 780 is a treat to work with. The back-plate makes for a very sturdy video card and the colors compliment a variety of cases and colors. I managed a 251MHz overclock and it blows through every game I own. Highly recommended.
