MSI GTX 960 GAMING 100ME GeForce GTX 960 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support ATX Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: Overclocks like crazy, and even more so with a voltage increase. Beautifully designed heatsink. Green accents compliment the cards design. Sturdy aluminum backplate. Performs slightly better than a reference GTX 770.

Cons: Costs $20 more than the non gaming just for a backplate.

Other Thoughts: Overclocks up to 1575MHz without increasing the voltage. Requires an additional 50mV to reach the 1600MHz point. Dragon LED lights up green instead of white.

EVGA 02G-P4-3757-KR G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 750 Ti 2GB 128-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 FTW w/ ACX Cooling Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: Powerful little card that is comparable to a GTX 660. G-Sync capable. Fans are quiet. Very stable at stock clocks.

Cons: Very unstable when overclocking. I can't even get a 50MHz core increase without this this crashing.

Other Thoughts: I bought this card to replace my MSI GTX 750 ti Gaming OC card that requires no external power. My hope was that having additional power would allow the card to overclock higher. That is not the case at all here. With a boost clock of 1268MHz, I can only get it up to 1296MHz before it starts crashing. My MSI GTX 750 ti Gaming OC on the other hand has a boost clock of 1202MHz and I have been able to achieve 1508MHz. A full 306MHz increase over the stock boost clock. Remember this is coming from a card that only gets its power from the PCI-Express x16 slot. I don't know if I received a dud or what but this is the last straw for EVGA. Yes most people will just throw the card in and use it. That's all fine and dandy, just don't advertise it as a great overclocker.

MSI GTX 980 GAMING 4G GeForce GTX 980 4GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support G-SYNC Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Amazingly stable overclocks. High performance for such an energy efficient card. Very quiet even with fans at full speed.

Cons: Card seems to struggle in some high-end games, something my old GTX 780 never did. 1 less DVI and 2 more DisplayPorts. (256-bit) bus width.

Other Thoughts: Overclocking is just amazing. 1520MHz on the core and 8100MHz on the memory. Runs all but the most stressful games at MAX perfectly. Metro: Last Light seems to be too much of a stress on this card as there are a few times when the game stutters and framerates drop slightly. It may have something to do with the 256-bit bus because I never had a problem with my old GTX 780. Overall a great card, but I feel that the GTX 980 was built more for overclocking than real world performance
