Summary: I say buy this card over the Titan or GTX 690. If you need more performance just purchase a second one of these and SLI them, It would not only still be cheaper than the other cards it would put your system in beast mode!
Pros: The card was basically plug and play and runs cool and quite for being a top performance card!
Cons: Make sure that you use the MSI drivers designed specifically for this card to ensure that you get the best performance out of the card. The automatic update will down load drivers not specific to this card.
Summary: If you can't afford $1,000 the Titan or the GTX690 buy this card! and If you can afford the Titan or GTX690 Buy 2 of these and run them in SLI they would blow the $1,000 cards away!
Pros: Kombuster Benchtest overall score of X5531 (168 FPS) Absolutely pleased that I selected this card for my new gaming build! Very quite card.
Cons: Make sure that you are using the MSI designed drivers. If you use the updated GeForce Drivers using GeForce Experience because the Core clocks get turned down to 890. If you are running the MSI driver the Core shold run at 1124.
Summary: My first brand new desktop built from scratch. Never had any dedicated video cards before either. These are amazing! (Consoles are getting worse, so I moved to PC gaming.) I've ran many benchmarks with 2 of these in SLI. Very good scores.
Pros: Overclocks well. Got my primary card to hit 1254MHz and my secondary card to 1267MHz. (sure i could get 1300+ if i spent another few hours fine tuning the settings.) Got the memory up 3800MHz Doesnt go over 70c under full load. (even then the fans are very quite and are only being put up 50%) All...
Cons: Coming from Intel's HD 3000 to 2 of these monsters in SLI, well it's not like I would notice any cons what so ever. without a stock cooler card I cant know for sure but I feel disappointed by the cards cooling solution and that its performance is marginally better than a stock solution (though it...
Summary: wow, cant say much about running 25% fan speed and the temperature still low, is like there's a ice cube inside it, cooling the GPU with low fan speed! Im able to play crysis 3 60fps+ on 1920x1080, and I love the box and protection for shipping!
Summary: Try to find it on sale. Don't let the enclosure fool you, it's very well built and quiet.
Pros: Great performance in games and full Hackintosh compatibility in Mountain Lion. The Twin Frozr is VERY quiet. Exceeded my expectations on noise for sure. All around, a great buy.
Cons: It's pretty expensive, but I feel like I won't need a video card for several years. My last card was the amazing Sapphire 5870, which is still going strong in my other computer. If this one lasts as long, I definitely got my money out of it.
