Summary: I'll have to replace this soon, but I'm going to try to wait another year. It's either a sad state of PC gaming when you don't have to replace a card in 4 years, or this card has been a legend. I'll definitely go with a newer Frozr in the future.
Pros: I've had this card since September 2011, and I can still play new games at high settings.
Summary: I am finally looking to upgrade, just because this card is quite out of date now. But even to this day, if it was still available I would buy another one and run them both in my backup machine.
Pros: This thing absolutely will not stop. I've been running it as hard as I since 2011 when I bought it. Not once has it hiccuped since then. I've been using it for gaming in a windows environment, mining in 2011 when it was still cost effective for me to do so, and for hashing pass keys in a kinux en...
Cons: I OC'd it and it started to burn up my surrounding hardware due to my lack of cooling in my case, but the card stayed cool! Even when I was being ignorant and mistreated it, the card still persevered.
Pros: Never had any issues with the card over the last year and I've put it through hell. I play demanding games, mine, fold... etc. I am really impressed by the build quality of the card and love the metal cooler cover. The plastic covers on most cars just look cheesy IMO.
Cons: None that I can think of. It's kinda heavy and sags if you don't tighten the screws while at the same time holding it level... but that's not really an issue.
Summary: Other than it dying, and the one they sent me as an rma having a bent backplate. Its a fantastic card, I had to use a ziptie to secure it to the case lol.
Pros: Runs good and cool. Runs Counter Strike: Source on 2560x1600 for me at 550-950fps depending on map and players in the server. All my games are on 2560x1600 and I keep my settings rather high on all of them. No problem running bf3 at all.
Cons: After a few months of having the card it died and I had to rma it.
Summary: this card is great plays diablo 3 max crysis 1&2 max bf3 max max payne 3 max big games on max smooth no problems just need a dual link monitor with 120hz refresh and your good to go with this card if you have 60hz your screen will rip other then that its a great card its a most get if you like...
Pros: quiet runs cool very strong great quality plays all games with no problems using i7 3820 quad asus rampage extreme 4 16gb ram 500gb hard drive 7200 rpm 1000 watt psu kingwing
Summary: When I got the card at first my bottom monitor input didn't work so I had to switch to the top. I tried to figure out the problem but I couldn't. I asked some people and they didn't know either. If anyone else knows feel free to advise! (:
Pros: I bought this card as a birthday present back in January. This card will play anything I throw at it on all high settings on a 23in monitor! Love this card and would definitely recommended!
Cons: The only con I am having is I can't seem to raise the voltage in the msi afterburner. I have it unlocked but can't move the needle, not a big issue.
Summary: - Have yet to try to unlock shaders - Don't Expect to OC this much more, it is already 50mhz over the standard core clock! -Fans get loud at about 60% Depending on what mode the switch is in. Still quieter than every console out there though lol.
Pros: UPDATE REVIEW - Stays cool, never goes above 68C* at full load - Looks Cool in the case - CrossfireX and Eyefinity - 2GB GDDR5 - UNLOCKABLE SHADERS*
Cons: Not really a con, fits in an Antec 900 just fine with an inch to spare, But now I have the HAF X Blue Edition (NEWEGG WIN!) BUT It is Huge if you are moving up from 2x GTS 250's.
