Worked like a charm - for just under 22 months.

  • Summary: Ran multiple OSs in a full tower with plenty of airflow, 600W PSU, and a Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD3H-B3 Mobo. Experienced decent CUDA performance on various flavors of Adobe Creative apps, about as expected for # of CUDA cores and memory.

Pretty Decent Card

Christopher C., Newegg
16 January 2013
  • Summary: It's served me well, but it's probably time for an upgrade soon.
  • Pros: Runs pretty fast and has been stable for me for over a year. For $200 at the time, it wasn't a bad value.
  • Cons: It's an aging card and is starting to struggle with some of the very latest games. It does run Battlefield 3 with most settings on ultra at 60+ fps pretty consistent, but it fails to maintain even 30 fps in games like Planetside 2.

Alright, but I had to send them back.

  • Summary: Overall, the card works great. I am one of those computer nerds who is always hyperventilating when he has to switch out a part for fear of breaking his system. Well luckily it's still running well.

Extended Field Test Results....AWESOME CARD!

B G., Newegg
24 August 2012
  • Summary: I have built many gaming rigs for myself and others and I have tested and used countless video cards from both ATI (AMD) and Nvidia and out of them, maybe a handful I considered to be the "Best Bang For You Bucks" cards...this would be one of them.
  • Pros: Great price for a this type of card. Wicked looking Cooling fans. Super easy installation (As long as you have room...more on this later.) Handles nearly all modern games without issue on high resolutions. Run quieter than most GTX cards even under load. This is the card for those looking for hig...
  • Cons: Cards cooling fan assembly may be a minor problem for some motherboards and/or cases...especially if you plan on using two of these bad boys in SLI. It may be a tight fit with the SLI bridge connector. Cooling fans at high speed (under load) may be a little too loud for some. You may have to down...

GTX 560

Nolan B., Newegg
12 June 2012
  • Summary: For the price it's a great deal. I payed a little more for mine then I'm seeing here today online. But that was around 6 weeks ago. Gigabyte z77 Mobo Intel I5 2550k OC'd to 4.3(will easily go higher with my setup) Samsung 830 SSD 64gb OS Seagate Barracuda 1TB Gigabyte GTX 560(Soon to be SLI)...
  • Pros: Great price and plays all my games on ultra. It was an upgrade from a GTS250. Runs cool and has a 3 year warranty.
  • Cons: Other then having to RMA in the 1st week that I recieved it. Seams there was a bad capacitor that was leading to artifacting. Just shy of a 3 week turnaround. Cost me another $16 in shipping to deal with this. Runs great now so I can't complain.

Very good card

William C., Newegg

  • Pros: This card is great. I improved my FPS 3 times better then with my old card. Easy setup and install. Great value.
  • Cons: A little costly if you want SLI. I paid $160 so it would take over $300 to get my SLI going.

great card, can do almost anything

Samuel R., Newegg
18 January 2012
  • Summary: Works fine with my 520w corsair psu. I'm running an i7 2600k overclocked to 4.5GHz. Gigabyte z68 motherboard. 16gb ddr3 2tb hdd + 60gb ssd with intel ssd caching If it matters, I did a fresh install of windows 7 when I put this card in (I was building a completely new computer). No problems at all.
  • Pros: Great card, runs almost everything at 30fps+on ultra settings. Skyrim, gta 4, crisis 2, battlefield 3, etc.. Very quiet except under full load, even then my CPU fan on full speed is louder. Love the mini hdmi. No problems at all, never have needed to even think about it. Runs cool - 55-65c under ...
  • Cons: Won't play X-Plane on the highest settings. I understand that, but it is probably because of the 1gb VRAM. Xplane can easily use 1.5gb VRAM. Otherwise it relies mostly on the CPU, which I have plenty of a punch in. Sometimes gets a bit lower frame rates on some other games that have 16x AA.

Great card

Eric M., Newegg
10 August 2011
  • Summary: I have a Antec 900 case with all fans on med. and that helps. All in all i love this card and def. recommend it as long as you can deal with a little noise with more intensive stuff.
  • Pros: Card plays all the games on own on max, crysis, bad company 2, and all my COD games. Love this card for its raw power. Stays cool with most games.
  • Cons: On some games this guy gets "Hot" now hot for this card appears to be in the 65 degree C range so that isnt bad but the fans on it kick up to 100% and it sounds like a mini shop vac. So far only happened on BC2 so not a prob.

Correction

Michael W., Newegg
29 July 2011
  • Summary: In my previous review, I only gave 1 egg as I thought I had a problem with the card. It was my mistake as my cpu is trying to die on me and the problem was not the card at all. I'll re-re-review again after my new cpu gets here. Apologies to Gigabyte.
  • Pros: Great looking card, powerful, quiet
  • Cons: unsure
