Summary: Card is going bad. Thought it was just a cooling issue so I bought more fans but the issue continued. It is now being disabled by windows because of a hardware issue. The card was great before this problem but hey there are duds with everything. Still would recommend, just make sure you have good air movement in the case.
Summary: I have to say, I have chosen the PNY brand before back in the 2-- series days. Was impressed with a brand I'd never heard of before. Fast forward 3 years later, I chose them once again with the GeForce GTX 770 2GB GDDR5 model they offered. American made? Check, quality service and product in the past? Check. Deal! Ran wonderfully for 4 months, taking everything like a champ.
Summary: I gave this a five star rating because my upgrade from a GTX 580 was flawless. I didn't even have to install a new driver (although I did anyways just to be safe)! This card runs worlds better, cooler, and quieter. It is the best $300 I ever spent. Definitely would recommend - I did get the 3-fan model.
Summary: I've had this for 5 months and it's been causing problems on my computer for over 2 months. It took a while to diagnose why the computer kept crashing. (ie....bought new router, new usb wireless card, new cpu fans) only to find that it's this $350.00 piece of crap video card. Now I go on Amazon to return it and find that the window for returns was only for (1) month. NEVER WILL I BUY PNY PRODUCTS AGAIN.
