EVGA 03G-P4-2781-RX GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card Factory Refurbished Certified Refurbished
"Refurbished" products have been tested to ensure compliance with original manufacturer specifications, and MAY include a limited manufacturer warranty - see the item's product page for details.
The new EVGA GeForce GTX 780 enables an insanely fast, smooth, and whisper-quiet gaming experience, every time. It’s perfectly tuned to today’s most advanced gaming technologies with features like GeForce Experience for one-click driver and settings optimization, plus NVIDIA PhysX and TXAA for smooth, sharp graphics, and more!
ADVANCED GPU FEATURES
NVIDIA SMX Engine
Enjoy maximum performance in the latest DirectX 11 games and optimum performance per watt. The new Kepler SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation's, and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant and power efficient graphics card.
NVIDIA GPU Boost Technology 2.0
Dynamically maximizes clock speeds to push performance to new levels and brings out the best in every game. Boost 2.0 allows complete control over Temperature Target and Power Target, allowing a new way to customize your overclocking ability.
The GeForce Experience application is the easiest way to optimize your games and keep your drivers up to date. It automatically notifies you of new driver releases from NVIDIA. With a single click, you’ll be able to update the driver directly, without leaving your desktop.
Anti-aliasing smoothes out jagged edges but can be demanding on framerates. FXAA is a new antialiasing technology that produces beautiful, smooth lines with minimal performance impact. And with Kepler based GPUs, you’ll be able to enable FXAA in hundreds of game titles through the NVIDIA Control Panel.
An in-game option that combines MSAA, temporal filtering, and post processing for even higher visual fidelity. Get the image quality of 8 x MSAA with the performance hit of only 2 x MSAA. This means a smoother gaming experience without the loss of FPS normally associated with this level of eye candy.
NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync
Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-Sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it’s disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
NVIDIA 3D Vision Surround
Imagine your gaming real estate across three displays in full HD 3D for a completely immersive gaming experience. With the EVGA GeForce GTX 780, you'll use award-winning NVIDIA 3D Vision technology to build the world’s first multi-display 3D gaming experience on your own PC. Additionally, the GeForce GTX 780 supports an accessory display for the ultimate gaming experience!
NVIDIA SLI Technology
Used by the most demanding gamers worldwide, SLI technology lets you link up to three GeForce GTX 780s together for astounding performance. And with NVIDIA’s track record for fast and frequent software updates, you’ll not only get the best performance in existing games, but future games too.
NVIDIA PhysX Technology
Full support for NVIDIA PhysX technology enables a totally new class of physical gaming interaction for a more dynamic and realistic experience with GeForce.
PCI Express 3.0
Offers double the bandwidth of PCI Express 2.0, for the highest data transfer speeds to allow for maximum performance in bandwidth-hungry games and 3D applications. The EVGA GeForce GTX 780 is still backwards compatible with all existing PCI Express motherboards.
EVGA's exclusive features
EVGA Precision x 4
The EVGA award winning software has been further improved in the latest versions. EVGA Precision x 4 brings a major revamp to the software with a new GUI, new voltage controls, pixel clock control, and much more. Check out what all the buzz is about by downloading the latest software from EVGA - for free!
EVGA OC Scanner X
EVGA OC Scanner X is a free stress test utility, allowing you to test various aspects of your card with a variety of tests. This application even has a built in artifact detector that will notify you if any faults are found!
Attention to Quality
EVGA’s attention to quality is worth noting, from performance to appearance, even down to the packaging contents and protection. EVGA cards ship with cover caps over the critical components, eliminating worries about any dust build-up or damage that could occur.
EVGA Backplate (Optional)
Available on some SKU’s, the EVGA GeForce GTX 780 backplate looks great, improves PCB strength, and acts as a heatsink for the memory on the backside of the card.
This review is from: EVGA 03G-P4-2781-RX GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 SLI Support Video Card Factory Refurbished Certified Refurbished
Pros: Incredibly fast GPU. At the time of this writing, it's ranked #3 on PassMark's GPU benchmark and will probably keep its spot in the top ten for a few years to come. The refurb unit came in very plain packaging (no fuss, no muss) and thus far is perfectly reliable. (I'm not surprised, given that refurbs frequently go through much more stringent quality control than new-in-box items.) Getting it for $50 off retail opened up my budget for nicer memory in my new build, too. The Nvidia reference design cooler is very capable and exhausts all of its heat directly out the back of my case instead of recirculating it. By manually setting the fan to ~90% max RPM, I can keep the card at a cool 70ºC when it's running at 100% utilization. By default, it keeps the fan down around 50% and runs at 80ºC.
Cons: Above 50%, the fan becomes very noisy. This is to be expected, however, given the extreme amount of air it moves and its small diameter. I would still recommend the reference design cooler over any aftermarket cooler that uses axial fans and vents into the case instead of using a centrifugal fan and venting out the back.
