Pros: Bought this card when it Came out and so far i can still play most games in High Settings on 1080P. Bought another one last year and have it sli and they have been chugging along. Still rocking a 1st gen i7 920 @ 3.8GHz
Pros: I wanted to give EVGA props for their excellent support regards RMAs. I have a very similar card by them and the first one died about 1.5 years after I'd purchased it. EVGA immediately agreed to RMA it for me, no fuss, and the replacement has been running great ever since.
Cons: No cons to the card once it gets past the 1-1.5 year mark.
Summary: I bought and installed this card in 2012, and have not had a single hardware problem with it. Drivers were occasionally a pain when using Ubuntu, but that's hardly an unexpected consequence of using Linux for graphics-intensive applications!
Pros: The card arrived on time, with high-quality casing and intelligible instructions. Installation was a breeze, even for someone who had never built a computer before, and there was no trouble in installing the drivers on a fresh Windows 7 machine. Even after dual-booting the machine with Ubuntu, th...
Summary: This thing will go into my permanent stash/collection after I'm done with it.
Pros: I've had this card for exactly 2 years. No issues with heat or CTDs, even when leaving games running over 24hrs. I have yet to overclock the card. This is by far the best video card purchase I have ever made. I hope my next FTW card is as good.
Cons: Should've gotten the 4gb model, then I wouldn't even be contemplating the 970 FTW.
Summary: Great company, great customer service, great warranty service, great components =)
Pros: Great Card, i have not had any problems with it at all. I paid 370$ for this card and after a few weeks/months the card price rose. With the excellent quality of EVGA products i will be a customer for life. As you can see by the reviews only a very small percentage of these cards had problems. I ...
Summary: Even though this type of cooler is not the quietest I still prefer it over dual fan configs that just circulate hot air inside the case. This type helps move hot air OUT of the case and is worth the extra noise in my opinion.
Pros: Fast. Runs most anything on max settings (not everything, some games would require two or three of these so dont kid yourself.)
Cons: Not really a con because I knew what I was buying, but this type of cooler does get loud when temps ramp up, but only after setting a custom fan profile. If no custom fan profile is set the default settings will allow this card to run too hot and it will throttle itself.
