Summary: This graphics card came in great shape, exactly as was described and so far after about half a year I have had no issues whatsoever. The card runs like a charm and is a beast when I need it. I can play every game I want on the highest settings, and the card shows no signs of slowing down. So far I do not foresee any slow downs or hiccups from this card. Highly Recommend!!!
Summary: the only game i can run most games with max setting and still get 60 fps, the only game I have drop to 30 fps on max settings is amra 3 but its a graphics heavy game, makes skyrim has now lag or fps drops what so ever, only when I had around 100 mods installed it started to cut and drop fps but other than that its amazing, haven't had any problems with it, have had it for a year now, i recommend especially if your going to sli brigde them.
Summary: first thing first the cards are amazing. the only problem i can say i had was with the rebates. i ordered 2 cards so i can sli them and i was like wow $30 off each card thats not too bad. so i filled out the rebate forms and to my surprise i only received one card while the other card was "processing" (and by the way it still is) so i called up the evga rebate department and they told me that i could only get 1 rebate per household.
Summary: This thing is so nice and so fast, runs every game I have on maxed out without problems, but it really helps out with After Effects and Blender. So if you want to have fun and have a powerful video editing machine, this is fantastic.
Summary: I did hours and hours of research before finally going with this card. When you're spending just under $400 bucks, you want to make sure you're getting your moneys worth. This card works very well, and fits my mid-tower by just over 1 inch. When running games, it does tend to get a little loud, but not so much that it bothers me. I've always loved EVGA products, and will buy again next time.
