Good card

Kacey R., Newegg
28 November 2014
  • Summary: If the fan fails again I'm just getting an aftermarket cooler, never had an issue with Gigabyte as a whole... but the second fan is making an odd noise at load. Only experienced two bsods after moving to this card from Nvidia garbage.
  • Pros: Good performance for price. Good cooling ability and stable temperature under load. Looks nice? Drivers can recover unlike Nvidia ones, if you do something stupid there's a chance you'll just have to close what you're doing and start over... unlike Nvidia where a crashed driver = BSOD.
  • Cons: Had a bearing failure a few months into owning it, had to RMA through Gigabyte which was rather annoying... However card came back noise free...

  • Summary: My Setup i7 3770k oc'd @ 4.5 ASUS z77 Sabertooth Corsair 16gb 1866 Vengeance RAM Gigabyte 7970 ghz x2 in Crossfire Corsair H80 Water Cooled Corsair HX 750 Gold Cert. Power Supply
  • Pros: Couldn't be happier with this product. I currently own two of these in crossfire and posted a 12328 Fire Strike score on 3dMark. This GPU in crossfire is almost overkill and outperforms much more costly Nvidia GPU's.
  • Cons: This card is voltage locked so for overclockers it will be a problem but having two of them I see no need for overclocking.

  • Pros: Have run games like FarCry, SecretWorld, MW3, and Crisis on max graphics with no lag.
  • Cons: Not so much a con but the card is huge. Make sure you have the space before you buy.

Gigabyte GV-R797TO Radeon

Jonathan F., Newegg
3 November 2013
  • Pros: Everything can't find anything really wrong with it, except once when it made a funny sound, but I just turned it off and left it off for a couple of days. Havent had any issues since.
  • Cons: Can be a little noisy at times when playing BF4, or Crysis, or any high taxing games. Expensive at the time for what I paid.

was good, not anymore

george k., Newegg
28 October 2013
  • Pros: was great first 3 weeks, ran stuff nicely, was a 500 bucks well spent, and then... poop, But this is how i FIXED IT, Downloaded"msi afterburner" and set core clock to 800, and memory clock to 1000, and no more lines of death, have fun with a slower card and no crash's
  • Cons: then my computer crash's, not knowing what made it crash i then just went on my way, and it crash's again, after 2 days, and then after a month i figure out that its the video card and its too late to send it back. so im stuck with the poop..,,

  • Pros: Fast, Ooodles of out puts, quiet while at idle, well made with lots of cooling, Quality build with excellent support.
  • Cons: BIG, this is a big card. Cooling, when running full out you may need extra intakes.

BF4 on ultra at ~75fps

Daniel F., Newegg
17 October 2013
  • Pros: I came from a 6800GT so this card is incredible to me. Paired with an i5 4670k I can run everything like Tomb Raider, Hitman Absolution, Dishonored, BF4 beta on Ultra and the feeling is awesome when I could only run League of Legends on Low and that was pretty much the only game I could play.
  • Cons: I do have trouble with Borderlands 2. I have no idea why but other than that, this card is ridiculously awesome.
