This review is from: ZOTAC ZT-70201-10P GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 Video Card
Pros: What an upgrade from a Radeon 6970! Comparison tests show the 6970 to be 50% CPU FPS, while the GTX 780 is 93%. Whew!! I had to upgrade my Gigabyte x79 ud5 motherboard to Bios F13p. F12 Bios would not boot. If you have a Haswell CPU (4770, etc) you might be ok with your Bios. Otherwise, make sure to flash the latest Bios for your motherboard. Most motherboards have a bios flashing utility. Mine was Gigabyte's Q Flash. To get full PCI-e 3.0 motherboard speed on the gtx 780, go to www.techpowerup.com and download the "force-enable-gen.exe" file and run it from your desktop or C drive. This works for my Sandy Bridge E 3820 CPU. It changed my PCI-e from 2.0 to 3.0. If your motherboars is quite new, you may not have to do this. GTX 780 is Killer in my games with a massive improvment. It is that good!!
Cons: No cons whatsoever!READ FULL REVIEW
