Pros: This card continually amazes me with everything I throw at it. Having just upgraded from SLi GTX 570s overclocked, I didn't know what to expect as far as game performance after having experienced the glory of dual GPU performance. Let me just say that I no longer hesitate to go into any game's advanced video options and crank it all up to 11. This card handles EVERYTHING without any problems or FPS drops below 50. If I recall, even Planetside 2 was running huge 100 player battles around 50 FPS with max settings at 1920x1080.
Cons: Fan can sometimes get on the louder side, but nothing that is going to be a deal breaker or annoyance in the slightest. I'm used to hearing 7 fans in my case as it is, so the addition of a high performance GPU like this isn't a bother.
Other Thoughts: My other specs when getting these results were on an i7 3930K OC @ 4.7GHz, 32GB Corsair Vengeance OC @ 1866, all on an X79 Sabertooth Motherboard and a 1200W Corsair power supply.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: - Amazing speed.
- Sleek look.
- Easy setup (none really involved at all except plugging in)
- Scores a 5.9 in Vista 64 bit in all categories.
- No slowdown in ANY games.
I've had this for a little over a couple weeks and am 100% completely satisfied. With the 12gb of DDR3 RAM, I've been able to open 6 clients of Crysis, 6 clients of World of Warcraft, among NUMEROUS 64 bit applications such as Photoshop CS4, iTunes 64 bit, etc. without having more than 30% of the CPU being used at any given time. It runs stock around 35-38 degrees Celsius, so you'll never have to worry about it overheating.
Cons: - Price drop happened a week after my purchase.
- Wished it had a single GTX 290 as opposed to the SLi GTX 260, but regardless, it still runs amazing.
Other Thoughts: This is definitely an amazing system to pick up, and I have yet to encounter a single problem with it through intense use.READ FULL REVIEW
