The fans are garbage

Bradley B., Newegg
8 April 2013
  • Summary: Great card, cheap lame windforce fan.
  • Pros: It's sad because the card itself was great.
  • Cons: I got the card despite the bad comments on the flimsy cheap windforce fan. I plugged it in all excited to find the last fan (3rd from the front) wouldn't spin. I spent all afternoon trying to get it to spin but it wouldn't. I even tried stress testing it thinking maybe if it got hot enough, the c...

It was great... for awhile

Justin L., Newegg
8 April 2013
  • Summary: It seems like I was just unlucky with this card after reading most of the other reviews, but it definitely stinks that my card after such a short time, has started to fail.
  • Pros: Works great for the most part. Plays all my games on max settings with ease.
  • Cons: Like the title of the review says " for awhile", it did run my games absolutely great, but now it does a series of brief freezes while playing any game even ones that aren't very taxing on the gpu. In addition to this I've started to see visual artifacts while playing some games. I've updated the...

Good Car - Big Negative on Multiscreen

Anonymous, Newegg
23 February 2013
  • Summary: If you do not plan on being a power gamer and shelling out over $2k in graphics cards and monitor buy a Geforce 680. I you want 3 monitors for gaming and are not wealthy, buy a AMD 7970 cards for crossfire setup and eyefinity.
  • Pros: Car is fast. A powerhouse right out of the box. I don't understand why others in the forum are complaining of fan noise. This card is quiet compared to the Geforce 580 and Ati 5870 cards that I have owned.
  • Cons: Before I bash this product, I would like to say that I am a big fan of Gigabyte. Their motherboards and graphics cars and architecture is solid. The con is not not Gigabytes fault, it is the fault of NVidia and the protocols that the have forced the manufacturers to use. Here is where the buyer n...

Crashes every time

Reid J., Newegg
18 December 2012
  • Summary: I loved the card until it started crashing, now I hate everything about it. But it worked great for the 3 months it did work. Currently, im reseting the drivers on it for the 3rd time, if it doesn't work this time I'm done with it!
  • Pros: I loved this card at first, did everything beautifully and had absolutely no problems until about 4ish weeks ago. The graphics are fantastic and I run all of my games, Diablo 3, Forge, Guild Wars 2, on highest settings.
  • Cons: Like I mentioned, the card started crashing about 4 weeks ago. I rolled back the drivers, used the originals and did everything I could, even tried the beta drivers, but it keeps crashing every time I open up a game now. I can't do anything with it except internet and low-duty stuff. Don't have e...
