Pros: - Best gaming card available
- Silent (for me)
- Runs 2 monitors (1 in 2560x1600, 1 in 1920x1200) without issue
- Runs every single game I own perfectly at max settings (also runs Skyrim perfectly even when modded in accordance with the STEP guide expanded version. That's 200 some mods for those counting.)
Cons: - Price (I hesitate to put this as a con since this is just a matter of budgeting and of course you'll pay top dollar for the best card.
- No real reason to own other than vanity (see other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: This card is pretty incredible as noted above. It will absolutely run any game you have at max settings unless something else is bottlenecking the PC.
That being said, I'm primarily a gamer so I can't speak to whether this is great for video rendering or whatever else you might need to do with it. Even for gaming, this is probably overkill at this point. I upgraded from a GTX 680 to a 780 Ti and while it did mean that any framerate issues were resolved, I feel like you could probably do the same thing with a 780.
If, like me, you're sitting at home and wondering whether you should get this or go with a 780 (even one in SLI) then there's really only one consideration. What is your budget? If you have enough to comfortably buy this then do it. If you'd have to stretch or it'll make you compromise elsewhere on your build, get the 780 and sit content with the fact that your PC will still be top of the line.
Pros: Nice, quiet card
Able to perform at maximum settings in the latest games at 2560x1600 resolution.
Cons: For a few hundred dollars more you can get the top card on the market that will outperform this one by a pretty significant margin.
Other Thoughts: I'm writing this review after this card has become unavailable. Were I to try and decide now, I'd probably wait to save up some extra cash and get a 780 Ti. That said, this card performs very well.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Massive Case
Tons of fans
Plenty of room for whatever setup you want to put in it.
Relatively good features for cable management.
Cons: Panels are difficult to remove. When I say difficult I mean REALLY difficult. Like, be prepared to brace the case against a wall, put a foot on it and yank to get the side and front panels off. Putting them back on is no treat either.
All the included screws come in a giant bag mixed together, so I had to spend 5-10 minutes organizing and identifying them all.
Other Thoughts: Overall a very good case that I am pleased with except for the noted cons above. For this price, a case should have virtually no cons to speak of, especially basic stuff like sorting screws.READ FULL REVIEW
