Pros: (while it worked):
preformed all functions very well, and never really got hot, dropped my power consumption and let me play all my games with almost no hiccups. great price for good performance.
games played: batman arkham asylum, nfs most wanted, battlefield 3, borderlands 2, burnout paradise ultimate, simcity, SWTOR, full arma 2 series w/ dayz mod, diablo 3, and the game it died on was battlefield 4 :(
so clearly I've put it through the works. and all those games were played well.
further more i use both ports and run dual monitors. often times i was playing one game and streaming video on the other or recording and broadcasting. this card did it all.
Cons: well obviously it doesn't do any of the things that it did before because battlefield 4 killed it 2 days ago. there weren't many cons but there was always this one graphical error where the mouse would disappear and would be replaced with a dotted line and there would be these little squares that would pop up on one monitor or the other and that would always bother me and would go away after just a few min. but this never affected any game play. and after 7 months of good use what ever happened has killed this card. i am waiting to chat with gigabyte Customer service on Monday since it was past the rma date for newegg (which by the way has some of the best customer service) to send it back.
keeping my fingers crossed that ill be able to get this replaced.
Other Thoughts: gigabyte is a good company i have many products from them and have had many more over the years. this wont deter me from buying their products in the future but id be sure to get a guaranteed warranty as i bought this as an open box product and that may hinder my replacement of the product without coming out o f pocket.READ FULL REVIEW
