5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: The card I received is the reference model and my Danger Den water block fits perfectly.
This is a really good card for the money and with a decent overclock, it will beat any of the newer cards in the price range that I purchased it for ($200).

Cons: N.A

Other Thoughts: N/A

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent GTX470 Card!!

Pros: Runs cooler than my EVGA GTX470 and that is with it being on the bottom of the case.

Cons: Does not have the Lifetime warrenty like EVGA but I won't own it in 3 years any way so its all good.

Other Thoughts: THE PICTURE FOR THIS PRODUCT IS WRONG!! THE REASON I PURCHASED THIS CARD, INSTEAD OF THE OVERCLOCKED VERSION WHICH IS CHEAPER, IS BECAUSE I LKE THE OLD STYLE FAN DESIGN THAT BLOWS THE HEAT OUT OF THE CASE. THIS CARD IS DESIGNED JUST LIKE THE OVERCLOCKED CARD IN THAT IT BLOWS HEAT IN BOTH DIRECTIONS. THIS IS A NEWEGG ISSUE NOT THE FAULT OF THE CARD SO IT GETS 5 EGGS. I WOULD HAVE SAVED MYSELF 10 BUCKS IF I'D HAD KNOWN THEY WERE BOTH BUILT THE SAME AND HAD A FASTER CARD.....

1 out of 5 eggsDead Already!

Pros: Well it's a great card when it works. This one is giving me pixelated graphic's over HDMI that leads to a hard freeze. Eventually it just quit giving video output altogether. It felt flaky to begin with knowing I have to install a driver just to get the HDMI to work on it. I used my wacom cintiq till I had it installed and it's as if the driver unlocks the mini HDMI allowing it to give video output to that port. As usual though just about everything I buy these days in computer hardware lives either a week to a month. It's almost all garbage these days. Seems like none of the engineers can get their act to together and make something that works for AMD boards. I am on a Asus M4A89GTDPro/USB3 board with 890GX chipset. If you have this board I recommend selling it. I replaced it already thinking it had defective PCI E. I have gone through several video cards and replaced my powersupply as well. And nothing seems to work with this setup!

Cons: First I'd like to say newegg does some false advertising on this card. The pictures you see here for the $200 model is the model that goes for $190 basically. I don't get why I'm paying 10 bucks for the wrong shroud that covers this card. It does however have same serial. So whatever they are doing over there they need to lower it 10 cause it's really no different then the GTX 470 that goes for $190. I'd have to check again but I think it's also 320 Bit GDDR5 memory. If that's different then I can see the price being $10 more. But the fact the model seems to be exact same model annoys me a bit cause I like the appearance of this card advertised more. It's not a big deal but I'd like to get what I think I am paying for.

Other Thoughts: My other thoughts is wondering where the computer industry is going. I feel if you have the cash buy a $200 or above board. You'll feel better knowing you might not end up with constant issues. I have replaced my entire machine around video cards thinking it was a powersupply or motherboard issue. Memory always checks in with no errors etc. Worst part of this constant hassle with RMA's is I have spent $100s in RMA's for products that don't work or end up dead. I have been building machines for over 15 years and the latest line of cards are just coming up flawed.
These companies should offer to pay for the first RMA. It's not fair to rip off the customer when you have computer parts that are defective or just simply don't agree with certain chipsets etc. Not my problem. I'm playing you for a product that should work and instead I'm getting ripped off on a daily basis. It really ruins my interest for computers. I might just get out of this hobby if I have to continue doing this.

5 out of 5 eggsGood price for an upgrade

Pros: It was slighly more expensive than the GTX460's I was looking at so I went with it. Like other reviews I have yet to hear the graphics card. Runs any game I throw at it. Mondern Warfare 2 flies on max settings. I don't have exact fps and benchmarks but I can tell its better than my old GTX260

Cons: wish I had a cover on the other side of the board to protect it and look better when it's upside down, not a big deal. Still a massive 10.5" card but that's pretty standard nowadays.

Other Thoughts: Definitely a good buy for the price. DirectX 11 will be great for future games and CUDA processors for future applications.

4 out of 5 eggsDual Screens on VGA

Pros: Very cheap GTX 470 24 7 tech support Nice Looking Card
It a fast card if you have the right CPU

Cons: Gets Very hot tech support not picking up on week ends but my real problem was that when i tried running Dual Monitors it would Dim Out one of the screens after waking up from S1 sleep and one time one of the monitors had no signal even though it was detected in windows switched screens and it was the card it got a bit better after I switched to S3 sleep. Need a Core 2 Quad To Run this card Tried to take short cuts and use a Pentium D 3.5 GHz and .... well it sucks runs worse than my old 8600GT getting 18-20 fps in games using the unreal engine but after I upgrade to a Q9550 was getting over a 100 Fps in the same games LOL there are no short cuts. Card at a room temp of 26c Idles at 72c Max temp of 91 c and Avg of 82c in games what worries me is that this card should idle at 40c+ but it gets to 71c i have got the card to 29c when comp sleeps over night and Fan runs at 41% 1650rpm idle and 60% 2600rpm max the Rpm at 100% is 4950rpm and will drop 10c in about ten seconds

Other Thoughts: I got this Card At Store for only $250 thats why i said it was cheap will Run any game you trow at it as long as you have the RAM and CPU to go with it and I have noticed my PSU blowing out hotter air since the instillation of this card 750W by Ultra
Also Got up to 27.1 FPS in Heaven v2.1 on a 1280x1024

5 out of 5 eggsDead silent.

Pros: This card is so silent I couldn't believe it. The 120mm case fans in my case are the only fans I can hear. And they are pretty much silent also.

I have yet to overclock this card because I haven't needed to. It runs Singularity in 1080 resolution like it's a joke. WoW on ultra settings is another cake walk.

Overall a very stable, well built card. Very happy.

Power cables run out the side of the card as opposed to the rear. Which is nice in my case.

Cons: It's a bit on the ugly side. (Windowed case users)

It does hit ~85c under load for me. But it's worth it for the silence.

5 out of 5 eggsGood Buy!

Pros: This card replaced a E*GA 8800 Ultra that decided to burn up finally, and the difference is amazing. I shopped around and the 480 didn't seem that much better for the price difference. This card is extremely easy to OC. If you go to the Galaxy website they have some OC'ing software there that will take the core clock and shader clock to the equivilant of the 480. The software also allows you to set fan speeds for manual or automatic,you can adjust the clocks so that they are locked as you bump them up as well to make it easy. Very happy with this card so far. The price is def. a plus!!!

Cons: There really isn't any as of yet.

Other Thoughts: If you want to buy a card but don't want to pay for a name then this is the one to get. Galaxy is on there way up though!!!

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Each of my 2 cards are excellent. Individually, that is. In Sli that is quite a different matter.
Individually, I give each of my cards a 5 Star rating.
In Sli, less than 1 Star.

Cons: Sli...sucks. They don't scale properly. The images have an almost stroboscopic effect. It gives me an immediate headache in Sli. I've tried everything I know to get these cards to properly play together. No go. Everything is set up properly. I've tried suggestions from different forums, e-mailed Galaxy (with no response) and Sli just doesn't work for me. I wanted to return one of these cards for a refund and then found that it's replacement only. No refund. I'll have to sell one or probably both and buy a dual gpu card from what used to be ATI.
Each card, individually, runs quite cool for Fermi's. In Sli, the top card surpasses 80C at idle with stock speeds with a HAF-X case, VGA duct wi/120 mm fan and the side fan, on an ASUS P6X58D-Premium mobo. 850 watt Corsair PSU, 12 GB Corsair 1600 memory, Intel i7 920 @ 4.2 GHz.
Ambient temp is 20C (68F) 24x7.

Other Thoughts: Also, no watercooling them since they're built on non-reference PCB's. From now on, if they're not on the watercoolers compatability list then I will never order another non-reference card. Even if I have no present reason for watercooling.
5 Stars for an individual card. 1 Star for 2 in Sli. 3 Stars averaged out.
I have no experience at all with Tri-Sli so no comment except I wouldn't try it.
I have now publicly called-out Galaxy. If they know of a fix it's time for them to tell us all what it is. I really want Sli to work for these fine cards.

5 out of 5 eggsBattle Ship Galaxy

Pros: This thing is battastic, when I got it all 470's looked the same, but the battleship grey, jet fighter primer stood out. Added some steady speed at 730 knotts with 1460 for current speed and 1720 for prevaling winds. Fan works when gaming gets intense and is hardly noticeable, Temp. is completely in a different category than all other computer componets, threw me off at first. Xtreme Tuner is awsome, very simple. Cant Wait double up, maybe too much for now, but cysis 2 looked intesive. ran crysis 1 on highest every thing 1080

Cons: Can get warm, and warm the box but there all like that. No benchmark utility with xtreme tuner but MSI Kombuster does work with it.

Other Thoughts: Wish NewEgg would sell evga back plates, For some reason I get this fear working in the box, bios, switches my hand oil is going to short something when i start it up. Some weird ill'blowitupphobia
