4 out of 5 eggsAsus GTX560 DirectCUii OC 1GB

Pros: This card is a Beast, However out of the box its not that awesome lol, after tweaking the card with ASUS SMART DOCTOR included in the software I was able to max out everything in every game with Anti-aliasing filter at x16 and Multi Sampling x8. I play games such as Alien Rage which was just released in oct of 2013, BF4, and Far Cry 3.

I run an amd quad core 3.2ghz processor, 32gb ddr3 1600Mhz ram, 750w Antec power supply with continuous voltage.

Cons: Not fast out of box, loud as hell, screams when under heavy loads, gets really hot, (last stress test gave me 34fps at 1080p at 80 degrees LOL) pretty dam hot.

Other Thoughts: I think this card would be super beast in SLI mode :)

3 out of 5 eggsSame as below, only 2 years of use

Pros: It was an excellent video card while it lasted. Was able to handle Battlefield 4 pretty decently as well.

Cons: Only lasted about 2 years with moderate use. It started having hiccups in BF4 (video lagging, random pauses), then artifacts on the desktop with random 5 second pauses and freezes. Also, if switching video modes, it likely will not come back and the system will hang the PC. Tried changing around drivers but always the same issues. Nothing looks physically out of place on the card.

Plugged in my old GeForce 8800 GTS and everything is smooth again. No problems, except can barely play BF4 now.

Other Thoughts: It's a shame, worked really well for a time. ASUS generally has made great products in my experience.

2 out of 5 eggsGood but only 2 years

Pros: The Asus Gtx 560 is a great entry level card to begin with my first build. It won't max out graphics but you sure can play all titles without much difficulty. Gpu tweak allows you to overclock or change your fan speeds to what ever is optimal to you.

Cons: The only one con I have and may not apply to everyone who buys this card is that mine died within 2 years. I was expecting it to last for at least 3 years. Disappointed in Asus for their bad technical support. I guess $200 for 2 years is okay but definitely not what I expect form Asus.2 eggs for 2 years.

Other Thoughts: I would suggest a higher performance card to begin with. I'm leaning more towards the EVGA cards now with their great warranties and support. Recommend: Gtx 760 or Gtx 770 4gb edition

5 out of 5 eggsgreat card and service

Pros: Great price. Has worked flawless from the box.. updated drivers. Owned and played skyrim for over a year and a half religiously on ultra settings no problem. Very impressed with Asus customer service. My first build and I got lucky with no problems to speak of. I would suggest this card to anyone for the price, although newer games are requiring more than this card for max settings, but if money is an issue.. go with this one.

Cons: Had an issue when I installed dues ex with the graphics card glitching, locking up and freezing. It was because of a driver problem with the new game. Square enix would not help me with the problems at all.... Although Asus walked me through everything and got the problem fixed.. I don't know much about computers and they have helped me when square enix and also gskill would not... even though it was not there problem.. very impressed with Asus customer service...No cons with the card

4 out of 5 eggsLoud.

Pros: It runs most of the games I throw at it very well. Every now and then I get FPS stutters but my main rig that is running an ATi 4890 stutters more.

Cons: Loud. This things is so loud that I can't use speakers I have to use noise canceling headphones. I am not one to complain about noise that often when it comes to part but it is far too loud. I feel that it is partly because there isn't great ventilation where the PC is. I am knocking off only one egg because the location is probably part of the problem. The case is also not an aftermarket case it is a case for a gateway computer. There aren't front fans in the case so it doesn't help much.

Other Thoughts: With the limitations of the case it runs great. I am jealous because this went into a family computer and not my personal rig.

5 out of 5 eggsGraphics Galore

Pros: Great speed

Runs Skyrim on Ultra, AA on max, getting consisitently over 60fps.

Doesn't run very hot

Well worth the money, but they've since discontinued this model. Grabbed another one off a certain auction site to run in SLI and couldn't be happier. There are better cards out, but this works wonderfully

Cons: Discontinued, so people are jacking up the prices everywhere online.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat card for price

Pros: I want to make the step into the newer gtx series and I love ASUS products. They have never failed me. This card performs nicely on high settings for my games (BF3, all the COD games, and Diablo 3). Everyone continues to ask why I haven't moved to Radeon yet, and I say if it ain't broke don't fix it! I recommened this card, and for the price it's a great deal!

Cons: None yet

5 out of 5 eggsIt works

Pros: It works

Cons: It's ever so slightly under powered. If this thing was a little bit stronger I think it would run BF3 flawlessly. However, there is still some slight lag that can get annoying. Either way not a bad card it's holding up. My processor is like stone age slow though so that could be it's primary problem and not the card itself.

Other Thoughts: 170$ deff. not a bad card for that, but really 40 more dollars and you have an even better card, but that's how it seems to work with all products. You get nickle and dime'd to death lol.

5 out of 5 eggsLoving this card!!!

Pros: Fast and great picture. No issues with any games what so ever. Running all of them on the highest settings and it is handling it better than I thought it would.

Cons: Asus (monitoring and overclocking) software that comes with it causes issues with Windows 8 which results in IE and Firefox crashing when you open them. If you get that issue then uninstall that software and reboot to fix the issue. Wish I could mess with the clocks but so far I haven't found a way around this issue yet. Still not enough of a problem to lose an egg though!
