This review is from: MSI GeForce GTX 980 GAMING 4G
Pros: Plugged it in, updated to the newest Nvidia drivers, and away I went!! Just that simple! Quiet, cool, dominates all games on max settings, buy this card!
Cons: None what so ever, this is the best bang for your buck.
Other Thoughts: This is the third MSI video card I've owned over the past 8 years. I've never had to deal with their customer service because I've never had a bad card from them. Does MSI even make bad cards?READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: This card might have rocked if it worked, but alas I never got to play with it.
Cons: After about 3 hours of playing Skyrim I noticed my monitor shutting off and back on again, along with strange horizontal ripples in the screen. I went back to desktop and it continued so I rebooted the computer, still happening.
I turned off the computer for the day and the next day it started happening immediately after I turned on the machine. I started playing Skyrim and it continued. I reseated the DVI cable but it persisted. I put my GTX 680 back in and played Skyrim for the next 4 hours without problems. Definitely something wrong with this card. I had it RMAed.
Pros: Beautiful picture and vivid colors for gaming.
Cons: Unfortunately this monitor can't display black, it can only display dark gray, which is terrible for gaming. I bought this monitor to play Skyrim and at night it shows a nasty white film over all the dark areas. I read the other reviews and 4/44 reported this same black problem so I'm thinking it's a problem with this particular monitor.
One inch string of dead pixels at the top right of the monitor which can happen, but it certainly didn't help with my opinion of this monitor.
Other Thoughts: When playing Skyrim the daytime viewing is beautiful at 1080p but because this monitor can't display black, it looks terrible at night.
I've been using Asus only for monitors since 2008 and have been brand loyal. I'm wondering if Asus just got too big that they lost focus on product quality. I RMAed this monitor for a different Asus monitor so hopefully they can win back my loyalty.
