Pros: -Runs great has a full 2 year use from what I can give.
-Can almost compete with next gen processors
-Price for 3.4 GHz is an outstanding price
-Runs all games with great fps
-I can guarantee 2 years with this processor if you take really good care of your machine.
Cons: With next gen processors I would mainly suggest this if you can't pull out the extra $90 for the Vishera 8-core 4.0 GHz processor. The reason for this is because with today top end motherboards are limited unless you use a top end processor it is compatible with just to get the most out of your machine.
Other Thoughts: I used this processor with my build of the Asus Sabertooth 990FX Version 1 which is no longer in the markets. R2.0 can support this Processor and have extra hardware and software compared to it's older sibling. I do have to say it was a great run with this processor while it lasted but I will be upgrading to the Vishera very soon.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The card is great. It brought most of my games' FPS higher and stabilized most of my games. Very quiet most of all when not playing certain games. Very good buy in my opinion
Cons: One of my major problems I had but was solved pretty fast. At first I had to replace the card because the fans were getting loud for no reason even while not playing a game they were loud. I thought the fan was grinding on the case or the axis was off on them. When I got my new replaced card it did it again a couple weeks after, but I ended up doing something different. I turned the card's fans up higher than normal and let it run for about 6 minutes. After I did that I turned the fans back to their normal speed and default settings and the sound stopped I haven't had the problem again since then. I guess Sapphire tightened the fans in really well.
Other Thoughts: Can this card be any bigger? I swear this thing was a tight squeeze I even had to re-arrange my cables to let thing card fit, but I will upgrade my case soon so I won't have the problem for much longer. I bought the card 6 months ago and I don't put in my reviews until about this long of usage. I use my computer everyday and have not had a problem with it since I bought the card and fixed the fan problems I hope this review helps and hope you don't have the same fan problems like I did. I recommend this card to anyone.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The card is really great loved it. All the games were running great (except Tomb Raider 2013). Ran all my games great from World of Warcraft to other games like Guild Wars, Rift, and Steam games. Just a great card in general I think.
Cons: The down side to this is that I've only had this card for 6 months and it went out on me. Just like my AMD 6790 did about 7 months after. I figured the cards I picked had a lot shorter life due to their manufacturing. the 660 GPUs and drivers crash and i've done everything I could from re-installing drivers to using a different slot on my motherboard (Sabertooth 990FX) but still the same problems. (Display Drivers have stopped responding and have successfully recovered).
Other Thoughts: My personal thoughts is don't buy this card unless it's intended for over clocking. The card is already superclocked just one more step to over clocking. Other than that this card is not worth the money if it will only last for a certain amount of time. Hope my review helped. I will be sending my card back through warranty after I find a new one. Nvidia is no longer my to go to card selection.READ FULL REVIEW
