Cool and quite. Nice VRM heatsink for H2O. Needs BIOS update. Low VRAM.

Summary: Upgraded from the GTX 480, this thing performs probably only around 15% better which is to be expected, however it runs much much cooler and quieter than the 480. The triple fan system does a great job of cooling the card at a low noise level.
Summary: In my opinion Gigabyte video cards are the best you can buy. The heave PCB construction and the high quality components along with top customer support make Gigabyte the best you can buy. I bought this card to run in SLI with an existing Gigabyte card and the performance is outstanding.
Summary: I purchased this video card specifically to play Battlefield 3 on Ultra settings. I'm not running SLI but this video card is awesome. I can run any current game (Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, Dirt 3) at 1080p resolution and at max settings with no hiccups.
Summary: Very simple review. Its everything you can possibly need from a video card. Whats the point of reading another review? If you are looking for something like this, most likely you've already done your research and know what this baby can do!
Summary: I just ordered this for a lightning deal this morning. I've been waiting for christmas to get this card but with the 60$ off i couldn't resist it! I've looked up other reviews and videos on this card and it looks fantastic. I'll update this more as soon as it arrives on the 8th!
Summary: Well, its a Nvidia 580. What more can I say? You can get 20-30% more HP with a new 680, but you'll pay very dearly for it. This board has an impressive, board length, heat sink that looks like it will be much easier to clean when it come time t do your semi-annual PM dusting.
