Summary: I have not had any problems with the card since January 2011, but lately (after the patch in BC2) I have had graphical artifacts. In fairness this may be game related, but it feels like it is the card running too hot. I will talk to tech support in case it may be the card failing.
Pros: This is the best card that I have ever owned in terms of power, but there are issues. I have been able to run most games on the highest settings. Metro 2033 is not one of them, but it runs and looks good on medium settings. Very powerful card though.
Cons: Hot! This card runs hot as... (you know what). It may be what is causing my new issues with graphical artifacts in BC2. The price is also way too high.
Summary: He comprado esta tarjeta de video, me ha gustado mucho, mucho mas fria que mi anterior 280 gtx ssc, es rapida, he jugado sin problema con ella con el I7 que arme comprando las piezas en Amazon, la mejor tienda..
Summary: MOBO: Asus Rampage III Formular i7-990X Corsair Dominator-GT 1600 - 24GB Corsair SSD 120GB x 2 RAID 0 (Boot) WD 1.5TB 7200RPM 64MB Cache x 2 RAID 1 (Backup) Corsair AX1200 PSU Corsair H70 Antec 1200 v3 case GTX 580 Black Ops x 2 in SLI Windows 7 Ultimate 64 - bit
Pros: Plays Crysis and Metro 2033 smoothly with all settings on high and with temperatures extremely cool while in SLI. Idle temperatures in my build 40C - 45C and under load varies but still remain about 66C top so far. Very quite for a card with so much power.
Summary: Put this next to a 280GTX acting as a physics processor and you've got a winning combo.
Pros: Plays anything you throw at it in highest details without breaking a sweat.
Cons: Started throwing tons of artifacts within a week of getting it. Oddly it didn't affect new games like Crysis 2, but showed up most in older games like Torchlight and Lego Batman. Was also disappointed that EVGA required me to pay for the advance exchange, even though it was defective from the fac...
Summary: the power of this card is unreal. yeah the casing is lame but its superclocked. best single core gpu card on the market IMO. also keep in mind when buying this card, your other hardware specs. its very easy to put the bottleneck back on your mobo/processor when having this incredible card.
Pros: very powerful card. EVGA is best in quality IMO.
Cons: the blackops case is kinda lame, seeing blackops for pc is garbage and runs like junk regardless of your specs. price
Pros: Great card. If you want the best get a GTX 580 hands down. There is no comparison.
Cons: The card has a sweet COD logo/picture on it but it faces down so you will never see it if mounted like mine is. I have it in a HAF X 942 mounted on a new ASUS P8P67 Deluxe with a Sandy Bridge 2500K. Like I said, would be nice to see the picture/sweet paint job instead of the back of the circuit b...
Pros: I have a pair of these in SLI config with a liquid cooled 3.33 GHz Intel i7 980x and 24 GB RAM on an eVGA SLI3 motherboard and an SSD primary drive. Everything lives in a full size HAF Cooler Master 932 tower. So far the GTX580s have been outstanding. I have had extended plat sessions with Fallou...
Cons: No problems or deficiencies so far. They are expensive but things fell into place and I was able to afford a pair of them. I did have to buy a honking 1250 watt power supply to feed them and everything else which is something some people don't consider.
