5 eggs but with a MAJOR but.... 11/02/2012
Miraculously the card works great. EVGA did a great job
Read below for why I say this.
Got a good price $60.00 off
Okay I will start by saying that the card runs great. I have no issues with it. Actually I was shocked that it worked at all. I received it today. When I got it. The shipping box was CRUSHED BADLY. When I got it open (which wasn't hard, because must of the tape was destroyed) The Retail box was protected by a scant amount of paper. The retail box had one corner crushed and the rest of it looked as iff it were used for a soccer ball. Now The packing was truly Neweggs fault. But the condition of the shipping box was all UPS and this isn't the first time I have received obliterated boxes from them. I have noticed a woeful amount of packages from the Memphis warehouse being under packed and the shipping containers damaged. This is tough to swallow as I spend at least $1500 - $2000 a year at Newegg.
The GTX 570 defiantly deserves the credit it gets on Passmark and other reviewing sites. I am getting 121.6 FPS in Heroic Sethekk Halls in World of Warcraft and 93.2 FPS in Orgrammar. So This is a great card.
But Newegg, you REALLY need to get on top of the shipping situation. Because this is really unacceptable.
BTW. I took plenty of photos of both the retail and shipping boxes.
