Summary: I used this GPU for awhile until I upgraded to a GTX 680. I used the card for gaming Call of Duty and Battlefield 2 and 3.It worked flawlessly. I will only purchase EVGA or Asus graphics cards. I still have a EVGA GTX 285 that still works.
Bottom line. Easy! EVGA Customer Service = Best. GTX 580 water cooled = Fun

Summary: The EVGA Nvidia GeForce GTX580 Hydro Copper 2 with its 3gb of onboard memory was the absolute best in its class. The 512 CUDA cores or 4ghz speed of this may not sound as impressive today as it did 2 years ago but when you add the fact it has a 512bit interface, is factory water cooled and fits in a single open pcie slot you have to respect it. There is simply nothing to not like about this card.
Summary: Not being used for gaming. This is a second GPU waiting for the software that will use it when released. Since the software hasn't been released yet (Octane Render for DAZ Studio) I still cannot evaluate it. Item seems in perfect condition. Will report more when I can use it with my software.
Summary: No problems at all with this card. I placed it in my new rig and have it OCd to around 930mhz no issues. Will run hot with certain games but never past 70c and that's in a warm room. With AC on and at load I get around 64c on ultra settings. The only problem with this card is SLI. Make sure you have a giant PSU. This thing eats power. Sure there are the newer 600 series out but this to me is still a solid choice.
Summary: I Built my pc for gaming, and it just works great. This Video Card have a great performance. The graphics are just amazing, I can play the newest games and wach every detail. It's incredible.

Summary: I'm glad I bought this GPU. Originally I was shopping for the newer GTX 680, but it sold out and the only ones I could find were overpriced. I finally decided to give this product a try based on reviews all over the web, and on the tech specs, specially the fact that it has 3 Gb RAM and the rebate (from $726 to $560!). It runs like a dream. The GPU automatically controls frequency, voltage, and fans.
Summary: I have 2 of these in sli in a system with the amd phenom II X6 1100t and 24gigs of hyperx ddr3 1600 ram and they are hard to beat.I have not run the 680's yet and plan to wait till the stutter issue with v-sink is lined out befor puting over $1000.00 into 2 more cards.I only run evga video cards and they have never let me down.
