Meh

Johanna P., Newegg
22 January 2016
  • Pros: Wasn't a bad card.... when it was working.
  • Cons: Failed shortly before 3 year warranty was up. So far the RMA process has been a complete nightmare. A month later and I still cannot use my desktop for lack of a video card. Gigabyte tried to low ball me with a nvidia 960 to replace the failed 7970. Honestly its insulting that they would offer a ...

Awesome reliable card!!!!

N/A, Newegg
11 June 2015
  • Summary: I break all the rules, when its time to clean it out i use my cheap 2
  • Pros: I have owned 2 of these since late 2012. No problems, and they play every game i own. GTA5 plays nice. One system is i7-920 oc 3.6 and a i7 3770k stock, no need to oc yet.
  • Cons: none, only reason i am upgrading now is so my kids can get these as upgrades.

Ultimace, Amazon
10 May 2015
  • Summary: The video card does exactly what it is intended to do. Which is a lot. It's a powerful piece of hardware to add to your computer. As with all PC purchases, do your thorough research to make sure you do not have any heartbreaks when you are installing this unto your new or existing tower.

Great card at the begining

Kyle L., Newegg
13 February 2015
  • Summary: ok so I purchased this card on 5/27/2013, I have noticed the last fan in the line of 3 has started to wobble and occasionally rubbing the walls of the fan well making fan hitting cable noise almost. this is very annoying, it tends to start around 45-60% fan speed and above is just awful.
  • Pros: Great card ran everything I wanted good cooling good power not necessary to over clock
  • Cons: weak fans got decently loud when fans pushed 60-70% This is on the longer side of owning this card I have begun to notice fan warp-age or misalignment over time, * note I have only cleaned the card twice with canned air duster*

1 Star for fragile fans & poor RMA service

Alex D., Newegg
9 January 2015
  • Summary: I bought this card thinking that if I paid the premium and got a super nice card, then I could use it for 3 or so years until it was time to upgrade again. Boy was I wrong. Due to the shoddy-at-best RMA process and the fan eventually breaking over nothing, I'm giving this 1 star.
  • Pros: -Initially I listed the 3 year warranty as a pro, but due to the RMA process being insanely slow and frustrating, this is no longer a pro. More like a false promise. -Card is very fast, you can play any game on max at a high resolution and it works great
  • Cons: -Card is massive, you better have a full size case AND empty room in the hard drive bay -3 fragile fans. Doesn't sound like much, but remember, if your fan breaks then the card breaks. The mobo wont POST without the fans working. One of my fans literally broke from an AIR DUSTER, blowing out the ...

Amazing

Scott F., Newegg
1 December 2014
  • Summary: I bought this card in 2012 and paired it with a 1090 black 6 core Thuban, that I bought in 2011. These two pieces of equipment are amazing. Since then I've bought a 4770K and 780 TI. Guess which system I'm posting this from. The Thuban. It really is just that good, and I've no reason not to use it.
  • Pros: Cooling, ports, constitution, speed, longevity.
  • Cons: I only bought one.

Hardware Issues with the product

Daniel, Amazon
9 November 2014
  • Summary: Bought this last year for the BF4 beta. Crashed consistently and I thought it was due to the game being terrible, so I kept using my old graphics card which didn't crash. Just brought it out of the box again and tested with Furmark (not getting it to work was bothering me after I learned some new...

Just... Bad

Aaron M., Newegg
26 October 2014
  • Summary: I'm not sure if my experience has anything to do with win 8 compatibility... but I've never been able to fix the issue with trying several different drivers, roll backs, new drivers, etc.
  • Pros: None...
  • Cons: Blue Screens, Crashes.... Makes me not want to buy another gigabyte or AMD card... ever....
