Summary: I used two of these cards in a SLI (2 video card) set up and they could handle every game I threw at them, at MAX settings, until the major publisher games of 2011-2012. It could still run them, just lower settings. I had older other hardware as well, processor, RAM, etc...
Summary: EVGA outsources its rebate to Parago, Inc, a datacenter in Lewisville, TX. They denied my rebate due to an 'Invalid Purchase Date'. However, Promotion #09-79236 from EVGA states that if the purchase was made between 5/01/2009 and 05/31/2009 and postmarked by 6/30/2009, then the $20 rebate is valid.
Pros: Ran card through stability test with Furmark with top settings. Card took the punishment well, temperature stabilized, and no freeze ups or anything.
Cons: Had to take off the cool sticker, as it was coming off the card anyway. EVGA forgot to peel off some of the thin plastic underneath the sticker. Also, nVidia SLI doesn't work the way you'd expect with two monitors, and fails with certain games. Better to just turn off SLI and use the cards separa...
Pros: Great Card, good price, especially with the Newegg rebate
Cons: By purchasing this card I thought I would get 670Mhz Clock and 1940Mhz factory overclock out-of-the-box. Instead I got a normal stock clock and I am forced to overclock it with third party applications. Why is that EVGA? I paid extra for the OC and I should have it out of the box!!
Summary: Would I buy it again, probably not. I would rather sacrifice some performance for a quite machine....or spend a little more on a quieter card.
Pros: It's definitely fast. There's no arguing about the performance. For gaming, this thing is good to go...however...
Cons: Surprisingly loud fan. I intentionally built a nice quiet system, and I succeeded, until I installed this hurricane. It is as loud as someone standing next to you talking. Hard to give a good example, but plan on it being louder then you expected.
Summary: Great card that you can practically do anything with. Only problem is cost. You can find a 640mb card for $299 elsewhere. If you have the $350 to buy this I would suggest searching around the internet for a better deal.
