Summary: Great card that runs pretty much every game I have at high settings and modded to death. You should see my Skyrim play throughs, I can now use any enb mod and texture mod I want and get great FPS. The size is very large though. I had a hard time getting it to fit. I had to take out one my HDD racks to get it to fit. My case has two sets of these racks so that goodness for that. This would honestly have a lower score if I couldnt get it to fit.
Excerpt: For those looking for a high quality, higher end graphics card that can laugh at whatever game you throw at it and ask for more, this is it! My old graphics card (MSI GTX 560ti) was starting to show its age so I decided to upgrade my system. I've always bought the "mid-range" cards and found them to be great at first but lacked the power to turn up all settings to max that I was looking for.
Pros: Easy To Install, Fast, Highly Compatible, Makes My Games Cry, Quiet, Reliable
Cons: Doesnt Bring Me Pizza, Expensive, Large size
Summary: I read a number of reviews on different makes of the GeForce GTX 780 and settled on the Asus version because of its quiet nature. The thing is a beast. It's heavy and solid and seems built for dissipating heat. It reminded me of the exhaust on my motorcycle. I bought it primarily for CUDA acceleration in high performance graphics applications that I use. Works as advertised.
Summary: I got mine for $336 dollars in Like-New Condition sold by Amazon Warehouse deals. That's an amazing price considering this card usually retails for $520. I overclocked it nicely: (at + 38mV Max voltage) 110% power target, +215 GPU Offset +295 memory Offset (crappy memory overclock because my card has Elpida memory instead of Samsung).
Summary: After years of cut-rate PC parts I finally saved up money and built myself a good mid-high range gaming rig. One of the first things I did was to research video cards. Man am I glad I settled on this one! Benchmarking shows higher than 92% of "high end" computers when paired with an Intel Core i7-4770 and Z87 Extreme motherboard with 16 GB RAM. This thing just screams and will play anything on the highest settings.
Summary: Got this for 390 dollars on here. Very good deal. Amazon Warehouse deals is worth it. I got a Like New one and it works flawlessly. They did send me the wrong card the first time and I had to send it back. They sent an HD 7850 first. LOL not even close to 780. The performance I get with an Intel i7 4770 and this card is 78 fps average in BF4, 55 FPS in Crysis 3 and 60+ in Company of Heroes 2 all at Ultra. Temps have never been above 72C with a 60% fan curve.
Summary: This card is an amazing card for quiet use and overclocking. I am not much of an overclocker myself but I got +125 core clock and a +100 memory clock in MSI Afterburner (I didn't really like GPU tweak that came with the card) I probably could have gone a bit more but I didn't want to take chances and my case fan's don't give off a lot of airflow. But even if you don't want to overclock this card is still amazing at stock!
