Pros: Low power consumption!
Cons: Sleep mode does NOT work on x58 motherboards.
Benched lower in 3DMark Vantage than my GTX580 Classified (750Ti 19088.7 pts vs. 580C 27937.9 pts)
Other Thoughts: My i7 970 still has life in it so I don't want to retire it yet. Kepler had the same sleep issue on x58 but I was hoping Maxwell would fix this, it did not. Google "GTX 680 - problems resuming from S3 sleep" and you will find the thread detailing this issue. Sticking with the 580C for now as sleep works greatREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Got this card for a great price ($160) for a friend with only 1 PCI-E connector building a budget box. Not as powerful as my GTX 580 Classified but for the price this thing ran Skyrim (almost maxed) at 60+ fps. Card runs cool, total power of the whole system is just under 200W at full load, < 100W idle! Friend is loving his system
Cons: Galaxy tuning software is worthless, but my friend doesn't know enough to overclock anyways.
Other Thoughts: i7 3770K 400W PSUREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Have has no problems with this motherboard. Had a built-in XMP profile for my low voltage, low latency memory and passed memtest no issues. NO finicky issues like a lot of other cheap boards. Had Coax out which was my main reason in purchasing. i7 3770K is running well and overall everything is great so far.
Cons: None so far, fingers crossed all stays well.READ FULL REVIEW
