ASUS ROG MARS760-4GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760x2 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card
  • Owned For: 1 week to 1 month

5 out of 5 eggs I went from using one GTX 760 to two GTX 760's and oh boy.. 08/03/2014

This review is from: ASUS ROG MARS760-4GD5 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 760x2 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Price-$489 bucks! Thanks NEWEGG OPEN BOX! Sure it didn't come with the original box but I got the card with all the original accessories.

Speed/Power-MAN THIS THING IS FAST!! I've been gaming with a single EVGA GTX 760 4gb FTW for about a year now. It served all my needs at 1080p on my 60 inch plasma screen tv. Overclocked with almost every game at max settings, with ABSOLUTELY NO ANTI-ALISING (I don't believe in it at 1080p and higher. TURN YOUR SHARPNESS TO ZERO) and keeping PHYSX turned off, (except on the older games.) I was getting a constant 60fps in all my games. But UNBELIEVABLE! When I installed this bad boy, like an earlier reviewer said, EVERY GAME FELT CHANGED. I can now MAX OUT EVERY GAME ( I still don't use anti-aliasing) and every game runs sooo fast it is ridiculous. I can't explain it...The characters and the general movement of everything on screen has completely SPED UP! Sometimes to frightening speeds. I hooked up 3 1080p plasma screen tv's to this thing and it STILL ran all my games at max settings and 60fps. Crazy.

Overclocking-A lot of dual gpu cards don't overclock that well but this one is different. Using the Asus GPU TWEAK software that came with it I was able to comfortably raise the gpu and memory clock quite a bit higher than the default factory overclock the card shipped with, especially with the memory. This resulted in vastly increased performance in all of my games and I'm pretty sure that influenced the speed aspect I spoke about earlier.

Looks and Build Quality-It is a gorgous card. Pulsating Red LED MARS logo was a nice touch. Just like the website and promos said this card was build with top notch components and it shows. No joke. They even threw on a backplate and even though my old card was the most powerful 760 evga made, it didn't even come with a back plate. Thanks Asus.

Cons: Heat-It is a dual GPU card so expect your power consumption and temperature to go up inside your case. Keeping those dual 760 gpu cool involves exhausting all that excess heat into your case.

Memory-Only 2gb. Remember guys 4gb of ram total on board but only 2gb is usable due to the other 2gb going to the frame buffer. I wouldn't recommend this card for anything higher than one or two resolutions above 1080p and still keep great fps performance Which leads me to my next con...

Price- Even though I got this card for a reduced price I feel like the regular price of this card is a tad bit much. I mean currently one Asus GTX 760 2gb is $259 sooo naturally adding another would bring up the price to $518. Why in the blue dynasty of creation is the price $639 bucks?? Is it because Asus was like "Hey....we gave you something that didn't exist before. We did the work so...yeah." Either way for only 2gb of usable memory that's a bit much.

Other Thoughts: This card is just like the Nvidia GTX 690 except for a much cheaper price, better cooling and higher stock factory clocks. Not stronger. But definitely close. Especially after overclocking this beast you will probably have the performance of a strait out the box none overclocked GTX 690. The Overclocked Mars 760 has beaten a lot of the 780 TI's on the market from what I've seen and read and if you can keep it cool, you won't be let down. I highly recommend this card to anyone. I couldn't even imagine using two of them. I'm gonna be riding the 1920x1080 train till the wheels fall off guys. A 4k tv or monitor is WAY too expensive and way to immature at the moment to even consider until we start seeing them pop up at Wal-Mart. I paid $500 bucks for my 60 inch plasma and until 4k hits that level of adaptation. This card will last me for YEARS AND YEARS to come.
