Super Fast Video Card!!!
21 May 2012
Summary: Wouldn't hesitate to buy another one of these Zotac GTX 580 cards. They do everything you could ever want. Haven't found a game yet that comes close to even push this card in the slightest. Awesome for PhotoShop too!
Pros: This card is super fast!!! Blows through benchmarks with ease. Scores a 7.9 on Windows Experience Index before overclocking. Paired it with an Core i7-3820, Asrock Extreme4 mobo, 32GB G.Skill Ripjaws Z Series ram. Runs very cool and easily overclocks... Thanks Newegg!!!
Cons: None found yet.... best video card I've bought so far.
Summary: The new mid range. With SLI type fancy rigs now widely available, and expected by game devs, getting any less isn't a good idea. I recommend at least this to future proof a serious gamer build.
Pros: Quick stable graphics. Plows through civ 5 like butter. Not too shabby on Skyrim either, we're getting ever closer to the dream single card Crysis solution. Try it before you knock it!
Cons: There is an odd problem that doesn't affect my normal desktop use. Appears some refresh rates get artifacts. Don't know if it's the card, drivers, or windows... So no eggs docked. Could have better minimum frame rates?
Summary: Asus M4E-Z, 2600k @ 4.6Gz, 8G 1600 Rip Jaws mem. I encountered none of the problems any of the other reviewers reported.
Pros: Lives up to expectations. I have two cards in SLI with no problems. Runs BF3 on ultra settings, but works better using Nvidia control center rather than game settings. MW3 is no challenge for the up. Vantage-38,666
Cons: I can't find any as yet and am quite pleased.
Summary: Overall a great card. I would advise buying it from EVGA though. I had the displeasure of working with Zotac customer support and you do not want to live that nightmare. EVGA has the same product for the same price with better tech support.
Pros: Powerful rendering, on time images, stands up to the task without killing the CPU.
Cons: Mini-DVI port is fragile if wiggled to much.
Summary: Running with an i7 860 and 16GB of memory -- gaming doesn't really get better than this! (Although if you're building a new rig, I'd recommend a 2500K + P67 mobo instead of the P55 + i7 860 that I'm running)
Pros: Fast, quiet, runs coolly, and overclocks very well (running at 900/1800/2004). Not really much more you can ask for. It's pricey, but the GTX 580 is the fastest GPU on the planet, so it's worth it!
Summary: I'll update this review if anything changes.
Pros: 1. Price- 419.00 after rebate made buying this card a no brainer. 2. Free Game- comes with Prine of Persia Forgotten Sands and Nvidia promo for Free Batman Arkham City download. 3. Mini HDMI adapter 4. Warranty- a bit confused on this some reviewers have said all Zotac cards are lifetime limited ...
Cons: 1. Still expensive even if it is the cheapest 580 out there. 2. Prince of Persia won't work on Windows 7- Not at all worth docking an egg, but apparently the ubisoft game launcher doesn't like windows 7? I researched it briefly last night apparently there's a fix for it, but I probably won't both...
Works as expected with some freezing and SLI issues

Summary: Fact of the matter is, they deserve to lose 1 full egg for truly not supporting SLI on two of their cards; that's pretty pathetic if you ask me. They replace your cards with EVGA cards if you complain about it; more or less admitting to the problem.
Pros: - Incredibly fast, can run any game of today at max settings no problem - Lots of great features using NVIDIA software to enhance games that may not self-enhancements (manual AFx16 works great in Oblivion!) - Got it at a great price ($390)
Cons: - Card freezes once every 2-3 days on me. Granted it has never frozen in-game or in-application, but rather when on the desktop doing nothing. There is a chance this is a power supply issue of course, but that doesn't mean the card isn't freezing. It's simply easier to restart every few days (und...
Summary: For those who think two is better than one you've never been more right. The GF110 scales so sweetly in SLI they should sell them in pairs. If you can afford 2 of these cards you won't have to worry about framerates or quality settings for a long time.
Pros: This board will do it all. There are only a couple games out right now that will make it sweat and even then it still produces playable framerates. There's nothing more to say. This hardware is built to please (your eyes, not your wallet). Crank up the settings and feast. Had no problems with ins...
Cons: You get what you pay for. If you're buying this card then power consumption (its hungry) probably isn't a concern and neither is your budget. Just know that it will get hot, even with the new vapor cooler. If you're using a smaller case pay attention to the dimensions. Its not as big as some othe...
Summary: I thought Zotac could be a replacement company since BFG went bankrupt and I had luck with their miniITX boards. Now I think I'll be heading over to eVGA. Hope this helps someone.
Pros: This card was an awesome card. It truely was... the GTX 580 is a monster. I will be looking to replace this card with an eVGA GTX 580. I gave 2 stars because while it worked, it was sweet.
Cons: This card lasted just over 6 months for me. Now in OCCT i get 50k errors on the GPU test for just 6 minutes. FuMark and 3DMark make all kinds of pretty polygon blocks and crazy jittery lines all over the place when the tests run. You can imagine what playing an actual game is like--constant drive...
