Pros: Makes me smile ever time I look in my case. Built this computer 6 months ago and have been using my CPU (I-4770K) for graphics. Does well, but then a friend sent me a golf game and seemed like I was missing a lot. He got online with me using Team View, I was missing a great deal. He suggested I get a dedicated Graphics Card. Told me I could get one for $40 or so dollars.
I got on line to Newegg, and started reading reviews. Took about 2 months of reading and one day say a new gigabyte, the R7 235. Liked what I saw. Was about decided to get the Gigabyte Nvidia for about same price. It had 128 bit where the Radeon had 256. More reading. The 265 had only been out about a month, and I choose it.
So glad, golf never looked so good. Also got two games with it. I have never played a game. Am old and this is my first build. Fun learning about this stuff. Games hard, old man slow. LOL Graphics rock. BTW I watch a lot of movies, hooked this into my big screen, via computer HDMI. WOW big difference in quality of viewing.
I have a Gigabyte Motherboard, main reason I chose the Gigabyte Graphic card. So glad I did. Goes well with my system. It really is an over kill for my meager use. Heck my whole system is an over kill. Should last a while. Dang it am looking into getting a 4K monitor, when available.
I do recommend this product. It works well. Easy to install, comes overclocked. Plus its purty.
Other Thoughts: If your like me retired, with time on your hands, and want to create a system, try building one. Cost more then buying one only mine is more powerful. HA HA True is it has been a joy to do, have learned a great deal. Part of that learning is that Gigabyte makes excellent products

Pros: I think I said something somewhat negative when I first tried this, could not get it to work with my computer, it did work with my ROKU, and my Samsung TV, do not know why would not work wita Acer monitor unless I just goofed on the plug in.
What I wish to say is the tech support from this company has put to shame all other tech support from other companies. They were very helpful and concerned. Made me feel even better then I did so to them thank you for doing your job.
