Summary: More horsepower than you may need for a single 1080p screen. Have been using it for a couple of weeks and it works cool (barely warm on the touch when videogaming, although I do keep my case open, so that may help. Even so I live near the equator with ~26-30 Celsius each day and as said before haven't had any temp. issues for now. Have had artifacts a couple of times, but could have been a problem with the game's 3d engine.
Summary: Arrived DOA. Didn't notice immediately because was buying up parts. Plug it in, it's dead. RMA it. Gigabyte returns a total hunk of crap that has thick blue bars running vertically down the screen. Love replacing a dead part with a broken part, epic fail on Gigabytes customer service and support will never buy from Gigabyte again!
Summary: I have no complaints about this card so far at all! i am yet to see a frame drop in any of the games I've played thus far. There have been instances where there are some poorly rendered artifacts on screen but I can't say it's worth complaining about.
Summary: Recently built my first computer. Decided to go with this graphics card. It is a great card. Not too expensive and you get great quality. the few games I have played I was able to put on the highest graphics. If you do not want to spend a ton of cash on a card I would recommend this one.
