10 months of hard gaming, then died

Summary: Owned this a couple years ago. Worked for about 10 months of hard gaming, then died (second NVidia card to do this to me). I played: Planetside 2, Natural Selection 2, Starcraft2, HL2. It wasn't the best card, replaced with an AMD card.
Summary: was a great card when was working... got BSOD after only few years of work :( $200 brick I don't think it's repairable. it was clean and no cooling issues need to buy a new card now :( should I look at EVGA again? is this issue from nVidia or EVGA???
Summary: RMA time and I dont trust Nvidia anymore. I tried them once not gonna go with them again back to ATI for me.
Pros: Well when it did work it ran all my games like Skyrim and SC2 on pretty much maxed settings, overclocked with no problems.
Cons: After about a month i started having artifact on my desktop at boot up and then it would just go crazy with colors and eventually blue screen my computer. I swapped it with my old HD4850 and problems fixed.
Summary: There are a lot of complaints on Nvidia's message boards about this chipset. EVGA would say you can't believe everything you read on the internet. While they're correct, there are too many people with the same issue to just consider this coincidence.
Pros: Like many of the reviews say, the card's performance is excellent for the price. So I won't get into that, other than to refer you to other reviews regarding temperature, fps, etc. I get the same results...when the cards work.
Cons: I originally bought 2 of these cards. I experienced the same issues a lot of others have with the cards just simply causing the entire system to randomly freeze. Sometimes, the computer would recover. Sometimes it might need a reboot to get it unfrozen. Once in a while a BSOD would occur. Unlike ...
Pros: Pro's?? It does give brilliant colors when its running
Cons: Crashed my system every chance it got. Perhaps I recieved a bad card. I would not reccomend this card to anyone. However, thats coming from someone who is having major problems with the card. I would download the drivers and it would not install PhysX ...I updated and still I get BSOD. I installe...
Summary: Don't buy unless you want to gamble with $180
Pros: Very great for gaming. Runs BF3 at high and 40fps and looks great. Plays other games a full (ultra) graphics fine.
Cons: Since I bought it it freezes mid game for seemingly no reason whatsoever. No ALT+TAB no Task Manager (CTRL+SHIFT+ESC) only hard reset fixes. I ignored it at first and then it began to happen more frequently. After doing some research on Nvidia gtx460 forums I've found that many people are experie...
Summary: I was able to get my RMA approved, my shipping label printed, and a tracking number from UPS already and it has been less then 14 hours since I recieved the card. I am miffed the part is DOA, but i give 2 eggs to Newegg for being so johnny on the spot these days with their return process.
Pros: I am home on leave and I decided to build a comp with my younger brother. I have lost track of how many I have built at this point. This card arrived DOA. gave same bluescreen post-BIOS in three different comps...I have to send it back, and wait for newegg to send me a new one...I will be gone be...
Cons: DOA from EVGA. I would blame it on rough shipping, (the box was pretty crushed) but I have examined the card extensively. There are stains and dust and residue on the bottom! and the protective plastic on the face of the card was removed?! I don't know what is up, whether it was a recert that nev...
Pros: Good looking Fast Fairly Quiet HUGE step-up from the 6800GS it tried replacing
Cons: Dead shortly after arrival: Played Just Cause 2 for about 1.5 hours, after that the driver started crashing (game minimizes and refuses to come back and/or screen goes blank). Testing with FurMark revealed instability, driver crashes after just a couple of minutes, requiring reboot or even reinst...
Summary: I really love EVGA customer support. 24/7 telephone tech support is unbeatable. After troubleshooting my issue with 3 different techs, we concluded the card is likely bad and I'm currently waiting for final RMA approval. I hope it's just my card, and not something I will experience again.
Pros: Works well when not overly stressed. I played WoW & Borderlands without any issues. Chip and memory have great OC potential if the board is designed to cope with the greatly increased power demands that comes along with the OC'd speeds. Newegg alway pulls through though, with price, shipping, cus...
Cons: There appears to be a potential flaw in the design of significantly overclocked GTX 460s using the reference board design. Using Furmark (or OCCT, EVGA OC Scanner, etc.), with a reference design card clocked at 850/975 (like this one) the power consumption is approx 44% higher than a card running...
