Great card. Extremely good price/performance ratio when compared to the GTX 580.
First card died within a couple of weeks. After wrestling with EVGA support and paying $20 to ship the defective card back to EVGA, THE first RMA process was complete. The replacement card worked flawlessly for about 3 weeks and started to exhibit the same symptoms as the first card. Cue the second RMA.
As a first time EVGA customer, I'm not having a very good experience at all. I'm also a non-traditional college student and the price of shipping these defective cards back to EVGA is adding up fast. The replacement card's temperatures seem to have increased over time. Idle temperatures stay steady at around 50 degrees Celsius and, before it started crashing as soon as I launched a game, temps hovered in the 85 degree range. It is a comfortable 72 degrees Fahrenheit in my room at all times so I suspect the card is failing. I guess I'll have to put my XFX GTX 285 back in and wait for a replacement again. Too bad XFX isn't doing nVidia cards anymore.
