1 out of 5 eggsBeware

Pros: Was good while it worked.

Cons: Tech Support....i started having problems with the card just crashing.i swapped it out with a 6970 i had in my other machines and the problem went away. So i tried other various tweaks over the internet with no resolution so i finally called tech support after owning this for about 3 months. I called up and started getting a tech support dancing around anything but it having a problem. First the guy tells me it must be my power supply and i tell him its an 850 corsair(not the best but should work) and he says these cards need atleast 1000 and i was really blown away by that. So i tell him i put in a 6970 and had no problems so he looks it up and the 6970 uses a couple more watts then the 580 so then the power supply was ok...then he went on to asking about all my other parts that might not be compatible.....end result was him telling me to try to RMA with newegg and if that doesnt work call them back. WoW!!??

Other Thoughts: So like a couple others have said....i will never buy PNY again. I used to buy all EVGA and never had any problems but got this for 469.00 on sale and thought it could not be that bad...huh well thats why these are so cheap.

Oh BTW i did end up finding a resolution to the issue and it was not with any help from PNY...i found an article on a forum and others were having the same problem as me...turns out the ram's voltage was to low (lower than what they send other 580's out with stock) and once i upped it just a tad it fixed all the issues for me and everyone else in that forum that had the same problem.

5 out of 5 eggsSolid

Pros: It runs as expected.

Cons: None.....some peeps try to say this gets hot and its loud. I have not had this issue. Any card at this level is going to get a little warm and fan noise is to be expected, but it performs very well for 70C and thats gaming 2-3 hrs BC2 and FPS is around 200

Other Thoughts: As long as your case has good airflow and good exhaust you should be fine and the card performs as expected. I you have a 6970 this card is not all that much better no matter what fanboy says otherwise. I 2 systems that are identical other than one having a 6970 and this with the 580 and it has a little better performance but nothing to be blown away by. I play BC2,COD4,MW2,MOH and waiting on BF3 launch. The beta ran like butter.

5 out of 5 eggsEnthusiast All the Way

Pros: Excellent card all around. Much more power than my SLI285x2 set up, especially in min frame rates Excellent fan cooling, room to overclock, pushed and benchmarked 10% increase in performance over stock overclocks. Dx11, tessellation and shading improvements. As well as more impressive min frame rates than the sli setup.

Cons: Hot & Loud, when I am pushing the card in benchmarks and demanding games it sounds and outputs like a hair dryer, i see why they need that 8pin power connector. But this card is Enthusiast in nature, its stock overclocked, its going to be loud. Its not liquid cooled.

Other Thoughts: SLI when I can afford it... May not need it today, but in the computer world things become outdated before they are released.

Final Thoughts, Happy with my card. Bring it!

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Fast, quiet, decent price. Life time warranty.
Runs (in SLi) @ x2 @ x16 with mobo: GIGABYTE GA-Z68X-UD7-B3

Fits fine in case: Cooler Master Storm Sniper ATX Mid

Cons: These things run HOT.
Idles hot, (120f+). Top GPU Averages (in SLi) between 170-200f (76-93c), and secondary is roughly 10-15 degrees lower on full load. This is with far beyond adequate air cooling/flow, fans will kick in (auto) at roughly 70% load/temp. Be sure to have decent cooling regardless if running SLi.

Other Thoughts: Have only had them for 2 weeks, so far so good, however only time will tell their life span. Past 3 Geforce GPU's I've had (6800, 8800, & 480) were all PNY's with little to no issue.

Have one qualm with Newegg, I purchased these cards prior to the rebate expiring on the 31st of July, however they did not charge my account until August 2nd, thus disqualifying me from a $80 rebate from PNY.
