Summary: Bought an Asus Nvidia GeForce GTX780 Graphics card from another retailer. It failed after 6 months. After a week Asus are still refusing to do anything about it, and the retailer says they only cover warranty for a week.
Graphics card is larger than specified and too big for my system

Summary: I ordered the ASUS HD 7870 and I checked on the ASUS website for the specifications which looked fine. From the photos on Amazon I guessed it was actually a HD7870-DC2-2GD5-V2 and when it was delivered it is indeed that model. Anyway, the ASUS website [...
Summary: Have this card about a year now and I have run all the gig games through it. I have an i5 3350 win 7 64bit. The fact that this card is factory overclocked means that it's revved up pretty high out of the blocks.
Summary: Had tjis card for about two months now, started freezing within the first month of having it, playing simple things like WoW and watching videos on you tube.

Summary: Quality Card, High proformance, Quiet, Stays cool with standard atx cases. With my I5 3.4ghz this runs like a dream, Metro last light plays 60 fps, BF3 60fps upwards, crysis 60fps upwards! Great purchase for a great card! ATI till the end!
Summary: A brilliant upgrade, once I had bought an adapter to power the second aux power socket. Runs really quietly, even when running flat out. Great card I had major problems for a while, but after telling the graphics driver to let applications decide on anti-ailiasing etc. suddenly it worked perfectly.
Summary: This graphics card i got in exchange to my Sapphire version which kept crashing. needless to say with the ASUS model i have had no problems except for some driver issues when i initially installed it (Flickering black screen).
Summary: Got this card for my first custom build PC. I must admit I was expecting more out of it but it's working out only as a very slight improvement over my old HD 6770 which had half the RAM! Still, it's a good price and is a solid card.
Summary: Well, my first review, and it's going to be a long one - sorry! However, for the TL;DR among you - card is amazing at stock, will overclock well in the future, but is noisy over 40% fan speed. Anyway, onto the waffle! I upgraded (a LONG way - 4 generations!
