Pros: It's an excellent card. Looks pretty, has plenty of connectors, so you can easily fit what you have or use multiple monitors. Thing just burns through games, and numerous things play great on highest settings; if not a perfect sixty, then very close. You'll have to futz about with ENB series to really hurt your framerate.
Cons: Unfortunately, I've had two these cards die on me. One while playing STALKER:SOC started artifacting and then died; windows refused to boot with it installed, with any driver set. The same thing happened, in an entirely different rig, when playing XCOM EW. The card, when observed, had never really strayed far above 70 degrees Celsius, though it tended to hang around 75. Unfortunately these both happened after being in the case for not-very long at all.
Other Thoughts: The only upside is that EVGA has pretty good customer service. I'm currently waiting for the most recently dead card to ship to them, but it is disappointing that I've lost both of these cards, and not even when doing the more intensive things.READ FULL REVIEW
