Therefore, the "Triangle Cool" Technology provides a more efficient air flow for the cooling system.

1 out of 5 eggsCard has crashed

Pros: Worked great for a little under two years running any game just fine on highest settings

Cons: Same errors as other, get alternating grey and blue/orange bars when running any 3D game, ultimately results in thread stuck in device driver error shutting down my computer

1 out of 5 eggsCard stopped working

Pros: Card worked great for just under two years.

Cons: Started crashing about a week ago to a screen of alternating grey bars and now I am completely unable to play 3D games.

Other Thoughts: I've owned 5 motherboards and 3 video cards from Gigabyte and this is the first time one of thier products has caused me any grief.

Still plays 2D games just fine.

2 out of 5 eggsWorked Fine, Until It Didn't

Pros: Worked fantastic for the first 6-10 months

Cons: I initially started having small issues like instability in games that ran golden prior. This is where I began troubleshooting. A year and some change later I cannot wait to get this card out of my system as I've never stopped the troubleshooting process. I'll be honest, I don't even want the equipment this card has touched. I wouldn't even resell this PC out of respect to the strangers potentially purchasing it. That is how terrible these cards are.

This is a late entry to the Rev.1 card but I hope others out there really pay attention to their purchasing brands. I got this card because of the extra clock speed out of the gate and have paid for my poor choice ever since.

I've considered sending the card in but reading the horror stories has left me skeptical that they will even assist me. My cards run fine and benchmark with 3dmark @ 12k but they are so unstable and just unfriendly. Every time I have to update drivers I stop using my PC out of dread of having to do it. The cards are a chore to use and while awesome when they work, the stress is not worth it.

Other Thoughts: These are the first and last product I'll ever purchase from Gigabyte. I understand sometimes things happen but judging by all the issues reported from these cards the company should have just recalled them.

To those of you who have gigabyte hardware and swear by it, understand I do not judge them by their history but by this product and its failure to so many users.

3 out of 5 eggsGood card until artifacting

Pros: Awesome graphics the first 30-45min of gaming. After that, enjoy the artifacts and crashes!

Cons: Random crashing, Artifacts

Other Thoughts: Just save yourself some headache and get a different card... I mean the fact you are already looking at this price range, don't waste the money on this thing

4 out of 5 eggsGood GPU

Pros: Great performance, was reasonably priced at the time

Cons: During intensive gaming and benchmarking it make the computer sound like an airplane engine. Nowadays there's much better options than the price I purchased it for ($300)

1 out of 5 eggsNice Card til it Died

Pros: Card ran really great, until about month 10.

Cons: About 10 months in, I started having game crash issues, rare at first, but finally got to the point that I couldn't run any game more than 2 minutes. After running thru all the normal testing (RAM, blow out the dust, updated drivers, older drivers, known good card, etc) I RMA'd the card to Gigabyte.

The card itself gets 4 eggs while it worked, the 1 egg rating is for Gigabyte's RMA Service. They've had my card for 2 weeks now and not shipped a repaired or replacement card. I had to email customer service after 10 days just to get the status changed from received, to repairing or replacement being tested, where it's sitting now.

Other Thoughts: I used to recommend Gigabyte hardware to people as I've always had good luck with their stuff, not sure I will continue to do so after this experience with their customer service.

1 out of 5 eggsGreat While it worked

Pros: Great Card when it works
I mean the hold music isn't too bad, if you count that as a pro...

Cons: Customer Service (waited for someone to answer for 5 min, then someone answered and I explained my issue to him, then I was put on hold for another 10 min. Then the next guy said he would RMA the card for me, and I had to talk to technical support, which put me on hold.
RMA Process
Dead after about 9 months of use
RMA was DOA

3 out of 5 eggsIt's been fun.

Pros: This card has handled every game that I have thrown at it over the past year maintaining at least 30fps with all settings maxed and mild/moderate AA at 2048x1152.

The fans aren't near as noisy as you might expect. At full throttle they are barely louder than my 92mm CPU fan.

Cons: My single biggest complaint is that I just noticed, ~9 months into owning this card, that the fan closest to the rear of my case is only performing at maybe 15% the power of the other three. Blowing on it with canned air while cleaning showed that it slows much quicker than the other two, leading me to believe it is a bearing related issue. At least it isn't making that lawnmower eating a weedeater noise that most bearing failures make...

Really my only other complaint is the fact that--as many others have said before me--the card sags. Like Grandma's funbags. At least these funbags can run Metro Last Light maxed out with at least 45fps...

Other Thoughts: If you can look past the sagginess, this is a great card for the money. Just make sure you read the reviews for common issues and CHECK UP ON YOUR CARD while it is still under warranty. I may be about to RMA this bad boy, since 2/3 functional fans will in no way satiate the thirst for higher frequencies that next year will doubtlessly bring.

1 out of 5 eggsCrashes Frequently

Pros: It is an OC'd 280X. Other than crashing, it behaves like a 280X.

Cons: - Sags to one side blocking PCI slots
- Crashes

Other Thoughts: I've had this card for almost a year. Since day one, this card randomly crashes pretty frequently when playing BF4, Crysis, or even CS:GO. It also sags heavily on one side which may be the cause of the malfunction. It sags so much it basically blocks my final PCI port. I shouldn't have taken the chance on this card based on other reviews. Now I have a card that can crash at any moment. I've put up with this card for a long time and tried underclocking, increasing voltage, and running fan at 100%. Nothing works so I will be RMA'ing this POC soon.

4 out of 5 eggsBe Careful w/ ASRock

Pros: Had this card for a while and it performs fantastic except on one motherboard.

Cons: Causes 5 beep code on boot when used with both m-dvi connections on ASRock z77 series boards. Tested with other boards and it's fine there are also a few threads unsolved on tomshardware about the issue. So do not buy if you own that board in particular.

Other Thoughts: great performance pushing 2 1080p benqs
