Pros:

6GB of VRAM, great for Watch Dogs. I've been tinkering with this card for about 2 weeks. It overclocks like a beast. I am able to run the card +160 mhz on the the boost clock and +600mhz on the memory, gaining about 8 fps on Valley Benchmark. It runs all games at max settings with good fps.

Cons:

Expensive but I did buy it for $589 on launch day (July 14th, 2014). It should have been released earlier since we are inbetween gpu generations for Nvidia. The 800 series is coming this October/November already.

I am also dissapointed that Asus GPU tweak will not load on my system. It fails during installation. Asus was not able to help me at all. They told me to reinstall my entire OS which I'm not going to do. So for now, I'm using EVGA Precision X which is a good program. That is why I took off 1 egg; expensive and GPU Tweak doesn't install. I am running Windows 8.1 and that is not the issue.

Other Thoughts:

I do recommend this card over the regular GTX 780 with 3GB of VRAM. I have used EVGA precision to monitor VRAM usage in Watch Dogs and i takes over 3.5GB of VRAM on Ultra @ 1080P. Future games will require more VRAM. Rumors are saying the new GTX 880 will have up to 8GB of VRAM. I'm glad I made this purchase because 3 years ago I bought the 1.5GB versions of the GTX 580 due to bad advice by people on other forums. They told me I would not need 3GB of VRAM and it was a waste of money. Look at today, 3GB is the minimum required to run games on Ultra. Do yourself a favor and always buy the most amount of VRAM possible.

Watch my unboxing and install video. I beat Linustech and Newegg to it :) http://youtu.be/H5-gH8Y1SGQ
