Summary: Recommend buying another video card in addition to this one. I was not an expert in video cards but I thought that a 500$ video card was plenty for playing video games on ultra settings without any problems. It came to a point where i couldn't play for more than one minute before the card gave up.
Pros: Amazing look.
Cons: Overheated constantly, fans ran at 100% all the time.
Summary: This and other Zotac cards are often a few dollars cheaper than their competitors, which is enough to sway me most of the time. I was pleasantly surprised to find a solid cooler on this unit as well.
Summary: First time buying a Zotac product, and I'm very happy with the card. No issues at all so far. The card is built very solid, and I like the orange and black look. My only con would be that the fans do get fairly loud when you ramp up past 40%.
Summary: Let's start by saying the gtx 780 is an awesome card. ZOTAC is not awesome. I got this card as part of a gift. Immediately upon tut binging it on there was a little fan rattle that quickly turned into the fan destroying itself and I had to shutdown to say the card.
Summary: Very nice card, does a fine job with my new 2560x1600 monitor, runs nice and cool and is very quiet. Edit: I should mention the service. Impressive. Shipped 1 1/2 hours after I paid and Xpresspost got it to me 23 hours later! This review was modfied by poster @ 03-29-14 07:27 PM
Pros: Well made, useful stuff in the box, the whole side is fans.
Cons: Just got it. This is not a long term review.
Summary: I bought the card from another vendor but I would like to drop a review because I think Zotac has delivered a very good product at a very competitive price. Runs super cool, under 30 C idle and stays under 60 C while under 100% load.
Pros: Quiet, Runs Cool, Great Price/Performance ratio if you can get it under 500$
Cons: Nvidia could include a few more games for a card of this price, No backplate but obviously this is not a really a con since you are not paying a premium price for this card (as a matter of fact this is the cheapest GTX 780 at the moment).
