Pros: Absolutely nothing.
Cons: Crashes all the time, games freeze, driver crashes.
Other Thoughts: I'm not tech savvy, but this card was trash for me. I put up with it for a year, but it's the same story over and over: Games freeze and crash or drivers crash. I've tried different drivers but it does nothing. I feel like I never got to enjoy this card and it was $300...what a waste of money. Newegg helped me to send it back to Gigabyte once already and it seems like they fixed nothing...I just haven't updated anyone because I've been busy. Now it doesn't even seem to work properly with my monitor (I am using HD400 from my 3570K, it's sad). I don't even know if I am entitled to anything at this point, but would sure like hear something from Newegg, because this is ridiculous. Will stay away from Gigabyte for one more builds I have planned.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: It works until lag spikes or your game crashes.
Cons: lag spikes, random frame drops, random game crashes
Other Thoughts: Had this card for 6 months now. This is my first video card ever, so I did not know how to test it too well. I do modest gamin so I didn't notice anything too major for a while. Now after six months of ownership, I finally came to the conclusion that this card fails to perform. I've tested with several games for consistency and it's the same story every time; lag spikes, and game crashes. Restarting my games over and over is not fun! I don't know if I got a bad card or what, but I am not pleased. I would not recommend.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: keeps below 45C at clock speeds running it for 8+ hours everyday, have not tried overclocking
Cons: I bought this baby the first it came out. Unfortunately my stockedness for this card didn't stop me from buying this Gigabyte at $320. Now they are at $300 a few days later...that's meesed up. Would love a reimbursement or something for those $20. I have spend over $1,200 on merchandise from Newegg it's a great website; but this I cannot help but to be very upset over, $20 is $20...taking an egg for that.
Other Thoughts: Could be cheaper, but I think $300 is a good price for this card. The Boderlands 2 coupon was a great motivater to buy because I was going to buy that game anyway, so I actually see it as paying $260 for the card ($320-$60). Bottomline is I needed a card today not in 3 months so I got it this and it works great. Was going to buy a Gigabyte 7950, but I could not pass on saving $60.READ FULL REVIEW
