Summary: I used to be a professional PC-system integrator. For the last 15 years, I have dealt with about one hundred of Gigabyte MoBos and VGAs, and I have always been confident with Gigabyte... until yesterday.
Pros: I loved this card very much. It was one of the best things I ever had. Good cooling system, really quiet and cool. Short enough to fit in any PC-case. Good performance for all games.
Cons: Until it died, it had no cons. Died after 1 year and 10 months of moderate using and non-intense gaming.
Cons: About 1 1/2 years later, this piece of junk crashes and won't display anything. Called Gigabyte and they refused to RMA over the phone. Tried to RMA on website and the website says that it is out of warranty, even though product was advertised as having a 3 year warranty.
Summary: I recommend using Precision X and GPU-Z for overclocking. GPU-Z has a slick render test that makes the Boost kick in so that you can see its clock frequency in action. I increased core/boost to +60, memory +240, and power 113%.
Pros: Gigabyte's fan design on this card is quieter and cooler-performing than the competitors, according to anandtech's review. Even after I OC'd, my max temp is only 64C and max fan speed 51%!! This card shows the miracle of 28nm.
Summary: I'd recommend again especially if it comes with more games. (bought mine with the deal for free borderlands 2 and assassin's creed 3)
Pros: This card is the bomb! Very quite, fits in my mid tower nicely with room to spare. I've been using this since before last Christmas and haven't had any issues so far. I've run borderlands 2 and assassin's creed @ on ultra settings with no noticable lag in frame rates. I've played on the pc using ...
Summary: Was very much looking forward to this card, as the specs and reputation of manufacturer (Gigabyte) is very high. Unfortunately the card was never operational.
Pros: Great looking card! Fans look great and operate relatively quietly.
Cons: Unfortunately, the card was defective and I was never able to use it. The card would crash my system after installing driver's (attempted to use many diff driver versions). Performed system wipes (and driver sweeps) and problem persisted. Took computer to computer repair technician, and card was ...
Summary: If only, if only nVidia would fix the multi-monitor support that would be great.
Pros: Great card mostly overall. Exactly speed, stays relatively very cool. The performance was great for its price point. But and the only but is in the cons
Cons: I was truly excited to have an nVidia card that could do triple monitors from a single card. But nVidia has the worst drivers and awful support for their trying to implement new technology such as multi-monitor support. Once you use 3 or more monitors, one constantly displays outside of range. So...
