Pros: This card is very quiet; practically silent. I was worried that with three small fans it might actually be louder than the single-fan card it replaced, but I needn't have worried. This thing runs quiet and cool whether idle or under load. I run this PC in the same room with a TV and no longer have to turn up the TV when I turn on the computer.
Overall great frame rates with high settings at 1920x1200.
Cons: I'm seeing substantial hitching in games since installing this card. The two games I've played the most are Titanfall and LotRO, and in both, the video will completely freeze for a second or so, then resume at a high frame rate.
This hitching usually happens 1-3 time per match in Titanfall. In LotRO, it's fairly frequent and is accompanied by stuttering where the frame rate drops to ~10fps for a split second.
Other Thoughts: Hard to say whether I would recommend this card. The hitching could be peculiar to my system, and perhaps I could resolve it by experimenting more with game settings.
Though I get the hitching even using the "GeForce Experience" optimized settings for Titanfall. It's also disappointing that the recommended texture resolution is "high," not "very high" (Max is "insane," which requires 3GB of VRAM). Also worth noting that both games and Windows are installed on a Samsung 840 EVO SSD.
