Waste of money from a terrible company

Summary: The card runs great -- when it works, but the card has a tendency to crash at random times needing a complete reboot. I tried all sorts of possible solutions to try and fix the problem -- updating the cards bios, trying various driver versions (old, new, beta), underclocking the card, turning off all the power saving options, making sure the voltage is static. Absolutely nothing solved the problem. I figured RMAing the card would fix the problem.
Summary: I bought this GPU years ago now. About two years. Here's my experience so far: + It does the job, and it does it well. + Two years later, I can still run games either on Max at 1080p, or Medium at 1080p (depending on the game, and optimization) + I have had zero issues with the card + It runs cool Its getting time to retire the card, but I will be keeping it just in case I need to stick it back in.
Summary: I had originally planned on purchasing the Sapphire version of this card, but it mysteriously disappeared w/o warning within 40 minutes as an amazon.com "in stock" product. Actually, I am glad it did; due to fact I bought this Gigabyte card @ $169.99 *new* from newegg. Let's dive into this fantastic card. Included in the Gigabyte box is one dual 4 pin molex to 6 pin adapter in case your power supply does not have a 6 pin PCI-E connector.
Summary: Max score on windows benchmark. I can run streaming software, watch my stream on twitch.tv, record the stream to a hard drive, play World of Warcraft and play YouTube music videos playlists as my stream jukebox all at the same time flawlessly. Plus I had my 6770 card for 4-5 years and that one still performed well. In other words I am comfortable with the brand.
Summary: This card is silent and a great card. I saw other complaints in the ratings so I was initially hesitant but I've now been rinning this vid card for a month in a half or so and haven't had any issues. I'm also able to run most games on max on my 1600x900 monitor. I highly recommend this vid card!
