Showing 1-10 of 37
Reliable, high-performance workhorse.
10 December 2013
Summary: This thing has been such a consistent and reliable workhorse, I have to give it 5 stars. It's easy to overclock. There's rarely been a problem with drivers and it's been able to play almost every game on full detail since I bought it. A great value and an incredible performer.
Summary: This works great, and looks really cool. I used it in a computer I built with a Phenom X6 and a Gigabyte Socket AM3/AMD 890GX/SATA3&USB3.0/A&V&GbE/ATX Motherboard GA-890GPA-UD3H. Installation was a breeze, and I love the way this thing looks like something you'd find under the hood of a 50's or 60's...
Summary: I bought two of these for SLI and they run all my games 60 FPS except for Crysis on max graphics which gets 40-50 which is still damn good. just one card only gets 25 fps max graphics on crysis though.
Summary: I purchased this card because it was good value for money and used the Nvidia reference design layout which allowed me to easily replace the fan with a water cooling block. This modification was straight forward and went without a hitch. The good: Performs reasonable well for games for the price.
Summary: I bought this card about 8 months ago. The Cyclone comes with one of the BEST stock fans imaginable. The card idles in the low 30s, which is incredibly cool. I suspect that one of the reasons why this card performs so well is because of how cool it stays under load-- I've never seen it go above 60...
Summary: I really enjoy this card. I can put StarCraft II on "Ultra" and get very solid FPS, even when there is a lot of combat going on with a ton of unit onscreen. I highly recommend this card, it is quiet, it keeps fairly cool, at least in my case it does. I haven't had any problems at all with this card.
Excerpt: I bough this card for gaming build, it was not the cheapest option but I am glad I got this over a HD 5770. The card itself is pretty powerful and has a lot of potential when overclocked and/or run in an sli setup although I only use a single card.
