5 out of 5 eggsSTRONG piece of work

Pros: I bought this card in 2010... It hasnt caused me a single bit of trouble since then and it still runs through new games with high graphics settings. I used to be on the fence with whether or not buying a high end graphics card was worth the money. I think this card was close to 600 when I bought it, and tech wise it was brand new. Anyway the performance that this piece has put up over the last FOUR years has validated the cost of the card 100 fold. I doubt anyone will read this because the card is so old now, but if you do - this is a nice card!

Cons: Some people say it runs hot - not sure, I have a full tower with 6 case fans - I've never had an issue with the heat this card produces.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Great video card and excellent tech support. I had an overheating-issue and got it replaced within a week.

Cons: Was literally obsolete/discontinued a month after I bought it, not to mention the 600 series was $300 cheaper, too. The main problem was that it did overheat (80 or 90 degrees C depending on the software I used to test it), but tech support quickly replaced it. It got so hot, that it fried an egg (see what I did there?)

5 out of 5 eggsPretty good

Pros: I bought this card for BF3, when it came out. Since then I've put it to use for tons of games in 2013, including BF4, and it hasn't disappointed. I can run most games on ultra or very high and it barely gets to 75 celsius. I never overclocked it, and it performed nicely.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: I'm currently taking a big leap to the 780, I think it's just time to upgrade. The 580 served me well!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card, but a couple quirks

Pros: Amazing card, amazing quality, still high on benchmarks/passmark site. Enough said.

Cons: Runs hot. EVGA did someone wrong with DirectX11 games if you're not an overclocker. I had to up my voltage using the EVGA tools just slightly to keep it from crashing in some DX11 games. It gets a little power hungry. This is something most overclockers won't even notice, but after some research I found that I wasn't the only one that kept mine stock and had this problem. Easy fix, no problems otherwise.

Other Thoughts: I bought an ARCTIC Accelero Xtreme+ II VGA Cooler - nVidia & AMD, 3 Quiet 92mm PWM Fans, SLI/CrossFire to get the temps down. Great purchase, but not for everyone. Voltage increase has fixed my problem with crashing now for over a month. With the extra cooler the increased voltage hasn't raised my temps high at all so no worries.

5 out of 5 eggsAlmost eerily perfect.

Pros: I've been using this card for two years now and haven't had a single problem with it.

Have yet to play a game that this thing can't handle at max settings, although my gaming preferences are generally somewhat less taxing on the "graphic requirement" front.

No driver issues, no weird errors... absolutely nothing unpleasant to deal with.

Cons: Not a one.
I'm usually kinda stingy when it comes to buying hardware, but this was every bit worth the money I payed at the time.

Other Thoughts: I actually originally ordered two of these when I saw that the mobo I was getting was SLI-compliant, and while the second card showed up completely defective, I didn't have a single hitch with the RMA or the replacement card.

While I was waiting on that, though, I found that the single card I'd been using proved to be more than sufficient, so I've just been holding on to the second one as backup for the inevitable burn-out.

2 out of 5 eggsTime bomb

Pros: A powerful card, games never looked better.

Cons: This $480 card died on me after less than 6 months of use. The GPU burnt out (as it seems to do for many owners) leaving a basic vga port that'll boot into Safe Made but the Nvidia drivers kill it every time.
I personally know two other owners (purchased theirs based on my initial recommendation) one had it die like mine, the other burnt out completely. Almost five hundred dollars for a season of gaming?

Other Thoughts: Because I travel for work and my primary rig stays home it had passed the warranty (of course) when I discovered too late the problem.
nVidia makes some good cards/products, just not this one in my opinion. Or my friends opinions. Or many others who've bought this card assuming it was of similar quality to EVGA's other products.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card!

Pros: I went from a GTX480 to this card, which isn't a huge leap, but I gave my 480 to a family member. The temperatures stay much lower with this card (usually 39c vs. 46c on the 480). Overall, this card is responsive and suits my needs perfectly. So far so good!

Cons: None so far! Although I do kind of miss the awesome looking heat pipes coming out of the 480 :-)

Other Thoughts: So far I've had good luck with EVGA cards on my past three builds.

5 out of 5 eggsGet this 580GTX, NOT 680/600-series!

Pros: I use GeForces for WORK (business), not games - CAD/design, Engineering; since Autodesk who makes Inventor (& AutoCad) switched 3D API's from OpenGL to DirectX. Also though "Solidworks" still relying on increasingly archaic OpenGL - a mistake, it runs fine on this card if you're skillful with settings. The benefit? GeForces cost several times less than Quadros, yet deliver better performance at little loss in accuracy and no loss for most worksttaions. An equiavlent fps Quadro costs $1600+, if not $3000
I've invested enormous time in reseacrhing professional application of GeForces, after everyone is fed up with "workstation grade" cards costing asmuch as a used car.
Get this card for 3CAD work, definitely if based on DirectX, but OpenGL also fine.

Cons: None, except people who believe "newer is always better".
nVidia needs to advertise new 600-series cards honestly, admitting their floating-point processors are INFERIOR to this older 580GTX - new 680GTX or any 600's may deliver faster FPS, but inferior compute ability, meaning: LESS ACCURATE, not so useful for Design, CAD, etc. pro applications

Other Thoughts: GET THIS CARD for 3D CAD if your CAD relies on DirectX, and EVEN if OpenGL as this card supports OGL 4.1 (along with DX11). Do NOT waste money on "professional workstation" cards unless you design some bridges with tens of $Million liability.
Do NOT waste money on "new" 680GTX or any new 600-series for 3D CAD, Work, etc - surprisingly, it was discovered nVidia deliberately dumbed down new 600-series (incl. 680GTX) making them even more game-oriented & less professional. The new 600-series speeds up thru FPS even faster than 500's and why? Because they're even more crude, inaccurate. The 580GTX is very accurate, with ray tracing, etc. - strong compute ability, 680GTX is more of a toy than work with its Floating-Point math inferior to 580GTX. Crazy but true.
Clearly with new 600-series nVidia is trying to further separate "game cards" i.e. useless for serious stuff like Adobe, Design, art, engineering, from "professional" ('Quadros").
SO... I waited for this 580GTX to come back in stock desperately!, once Newegg notified me I grabbed it imemdiately, prices worlwide are higher than Newegg & was out of stock here (Newegg) for afew days I panicked, because alternative 680GTX is just not as good.
it's like old car is better than new, I know hard to believe - but true. 580 is better for work than 680.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing card

Pros: This is an amazing video card. Pick a game, turn all of the settings to max, and enjoy.

Cons: This card runs incredibly hot if you're not careful. I am not sure if it is airflow in my case or a defunct card... My HDMI port stopped working after 5 months of use, and is finally unable to game after one year of use. Was hoping for a longer life out of an EVGA product.

1 out of 5 eggs

Pros: i like this card, had one for over a year

Cons: bought a second to put in SLi, but they never gave me an SLi bridge. Why advertise a card as SLi ready and don't include an SLi bridge? In either package at that too. TERRIBLE

Manufacturer Response:


We do not ship this product with an SLI bridge as most SLI compatible motherboards come with the respective SLI bridges that match the boards layout. I apologize for the inconvenience. Please contact us at 888-881-3842 for assistance with this matter.

Thank you,
Brandon B
