Summary: When I received the item, it was in poor condition. I wasn't able to make use of it at all. From what I've read and heard about these VGA cards - they are supposed to be quite capable. I was forced to return the item to Amazon ultimately.
Summary: Well it was less than 18 months with a full 3 year warranty before this card crapped out on me. I contacted EVGA twice and they were rude. I need a serial number on the card that is not there. I was told it was probably sweated off. That does not help for a card I paid nearly $500. Everyone at EVGA that I did contact basically told me that since the sticker was gone, there was no way to get a replacement. If anyone looks at this card, just do not buy EVGA.
Summary: I really like EVGA and the recent decade they have stepped up their game big time! I still prefer MSI and ASUS but EVGA is almost there. They need to learn from MSI how to keep their cards running cool. EVGA cards run hot, hot, hot! I bought another one recently and had them SLI for because I wanted Metro Last Light at full blast! Running beautifully, but the cards run at 92°C and they are bulky with my sound card fitting only between them, Scary!
Summary: I was told by friends that i was going to be able to play any game no matter how demanding it would be. After reading so much i found out that it was better to get 1 real good video card instead of doing Sli with to inferior video cards the reason why is because in most cases you have to have 1000+ watts PSU to SLI without any issue not only you need to spend money on another video card to SLI but also another higher Wattage PSU to hold both cards.
good card, must be SLI(ed) for current and future games

Summary: this card is really powerful, but what im disappointed at is that game developers support GPU companies and they purposely bad codegames so u can buy a graphics card every month, lol. But yea its true, hence why most games intros start with "best played with Nvidia" or ATI. it really is disappointing because this card is too powerful but we will never know the power of the card as long as game developers keep bad coding games so they run like crap on a really powerful...
Summary: I had trouble getting my gaming machine to do a full 60 fps in most high-graphic games and upgraded to this. Now it handles everything I throw at it with the greatest of ease. A little pricey, but so is everything else in this range of graphics quality. I rarely dip below 60 fps, usually only when I'm using Fraps or doing something that hits my CPU more than my GPU. If your gaming experience is lacking, and you can afford it, I would highly suggest this.
Summary: I was in the market for a new video card, since AMD's drivers kind of suck in both Windows and GNU/Linux and the new 6xx series cards completely nerf the OpenGL performance this was my top pick. This item was shipped quickly, a little dusty but that's ok. Once I got it I thourghly stress tested the card (gaming at max settings, 24 hours of FurMark and 6 hours of Nvidia's artifact detector, everything passed with flying colors.
