3 out of 5 eggsSuddenly died

Pros: Good performance, quiet.

Cons: Suddenly died after just over a year. Not cool. I am contacting Gigabyte to see what can be done.

5 out of 5 eggsBest 660 Ti board design

Pros: Gigabyte's fan design on this card is quieter and cooler-performing than the competitors, according to anandtech's review. Even after I OC'd, my max temp is only 64C and max fan speed 51%!! This card shows the miracle of 28nm.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: I recommend using Precision X and GPU-Z for overclocking. GPU-Z has a slick render test that makes the Boost kick in so that you can see its clock frequency in action. I increased core/boost to +60, memory +240, and power 113%. Check the box "START UP", and Precision X will apply this on startup and the task will end on its own after a minute on bootup, which is perfect.

5 out of 5 eggsOUTSTANDING CARD!

Pros: This card is the bomb! Very quite, fits in my mid tower nicely with room to spare. I've been using this since before last Christmas and haven't had any issues so far. I've run borderlands 2 and assassin's creed @ on ultra settings with no noticable lag in frame rates. I've played on the pc using this card for 10 hours at a time and still haven't noticed any heat issues. It's quieter than my case fans.

Cons: it didn't install itself

Other Thoughts: I'd recommend again especially if it comes with more games. (bought mine with the deal for free borderlands 2 and assassin's creed 3)

1 out of 5 eggsDefective card.

Pros: Great looking card! Fans look great and operate relatively quietly.

Cons: Unfortunately, the card was defective and I was never able to use it. The card would crash my system after installing driver's (attempted to use many diff driver versions). Performed system wipes (and driver sweeps) and problem persisted. Took computer to computer repair technician, and card was tested with different system & OS with same results. The card was defective.

Other Thoughts: Was very much looking forward to this card, as the specs and reputation of manufacturer (Gigabyte) is very high. Unfortunately the card was never operational.

3 out of 5 eggsMulti-monitor support needed

Pros: Great card mostly overall. Exactly speed, stays relatively very cool. The performance was great for its price point. But and the only but is in the cons

Cons: I was truly excited to have an nVidia card that could do triple monitors from a single card. But nVidia has the worst drivers and awful support for their trying to implement new technology such as multi-monitor support. Once you use 3 or more monitors, one constantly displays outside of range. So if you are looking for more than triple monitor support look to AMD or a new nVidia these guys dont like it.

Other Thoughts: If only, if only nVidia would fix the multi-monitor support that would be great.

5 out of 5 eggsLiked it so much I bought a second!

Pros: Fast, quiet, and stable.

Cons: Scarce availability, a little too expensive.

Other Thoughts: In an SLI x 2, faster than any singled GPU card around!

5 out of 5 eggsBest bang for your buck

Pros: Runs Bioshock: Infinite in High-Ultra settings silky smooth. Can't wait to dive into other games and see how awesome they look at Ultra settings.

Cons: Wish I had bought at the end of last year, when Nvidia was offering Borderlands 2 and some other games instead of "just" $20 back in rebates and $150 in points to various F2P games.

Other Thoughts: Installed the drivers off the disc, instead of downloading the latest from Nvidia. Had to manually update drivers because Nvidia's software threw me into a "you must restart" loop when trying to update or uninstall the disc drivers.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: Well cooled, even in my tight case. Paired with i5 2500 and some good ram im maxed in BF3, and playing Arma 3 with mixed high, very high settings. Nice upgrade from Gtx 460.

Cons: Long. Nearly didnt fit with its longer cooler, and length is not listed on newegg.

Other Thoughts: Upgraded from Gigabyte gtx 460 listed at 9.4". The board itself seems about that length, but the cooler hangs over about another 1-1.5".

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card Overall

Pros: Super fast card. It's quiet too. Even at 80% fan speed its a hushed whir sound. Generally the fan run at 45-60% in almost all circumstances and would be considered inaudible. The stock Gigabyte OC utility allows you to set the fan to "auto" or "manual". In "auto" the fan was basically idle until temps got above 75 deg. I use the "manual" setting and specify the fan speed vs. temp - I don't want the temp above 69 deg and I set the fans speed accordingly. Excellent framerates in the games I play - no slowdowns or studders. Decent utility software. Excellent X-Plane / FS2004 / Civ4 / Skyrim gaming card. Good combo with AMD FX-6300 CPU.

Not a single crash or problem using latest Gigabyte OC utility (downloaded from website) and latest 310.70 Nvidia drivers (also downloaded). Card ran as soon as I plugged everything in and hasn't stopped in a week.

After looking at reviews and benchmarks, I decided on the Gigabyte model because of its larger fans - this makes the card run cool and quiet and that was the deciding feature. I am happy with the Gigabyte cooling solution, it keeps the card cool and quiet.

Cons: Uses 2x6-pin PCIe plugs. Not quite as fast as I had hoped (see other thoughts). Uses more power. Slightly louder overall. This is all compared to a recently installed GTX 650Ti. Compared to my original GTX550Ti, both cards are far superior in every way.

Other Thoughts: I replaced a very nice Gigabyte 650Ti with this card. After reviewing benchmarks and reviews, I deemed this card a worthy upgrade. The 650Ti was a placeholder card until I finished my computer build. That being said, the 660Ti is a great card.

However, I was expecting a little more. The 650Ti was extremely quiet, ran very cool and didn't use a lot of power. The 660Ti is a little louder due to higher temps (although the "loudness" is relative - it's a very quiet card overall) and draws more power (this was expected).

I am not disappointed by any means, just was expected a little more performance for the extra heat and power. Again, these complaints are relative - my original GTX550Ti was much hotter, louder, more power hungry and much slower in performance compared to the 660Ti.
I should have just bought the 660Ti to start with. I believe the 650Ti is a great card, and it's a hard call to justify the extra $100 I spent on the 660Ti vs. the 650Ti.

The card is fast - wicked fast. Just not much faster in the games I use compared to the 650Ti.

I would not swap it out with the 650Ti however, because it is faster. Here's my example. I primarily built this new system for X-Plane flight simulator. With the 650Ti I had great framerates at moderate settings and medium quality 8xAA. I was hoping, based on reviews and benchmarks, that the 660Ti would allow me to maintain my framerates and improve detail settings and AA. While this turned out to be true, I was only able to bump up the settings one level. Again, I didn't expect a doubling in performance, but I did expect more. It just goes to show that the video card is not the only factor in gaming performance (I only upgraded the GPU - my CPU / mobo / RAM remained the same). With the increase in details that I did get, I also got about 50-75W more power usage (via Kill-A-Watts), about 15-deg increase in demand operating temp (via Gigabyte OC software) and a slight increase in overall case temp (about 2-4 deg) and increase in sound level (due to higher temp, increase in fan speed needed for GPU and case fan).
I do have to say that with the 650Ti in X-Plane there were some instances where the sim would slow down a bit and it was noticeable. With the 660Ti there are no slowdowns whatsoever.

So, with a slight increase in detail level and AA and a general increase in overall "smoothness", I would say the 660Ti was a worthy upgrade over the 650Ti. That is why I rated it 5 stars.

I could overclock the card I suppose and make it similar to the TOC version of the same card, but when I did so, I got about 50Mhz in stable clock speed with no noticeable improvement in any game.

My suggestion would be if you're debating a 650Ti vs. 660Ti, just get the 660Ti unless you are on a strict budget - then get the 650Ti if that's the case and in 95% of your games you won't notice the difference.

Finally, it didn't make me coffee this am, so that's a con, obviously.
