Pros: So I upgraded from SLI GTX 680 to the SLI 780 several months ago. Although the 780 cards were good, I never really felt like I made a significant improvement over the 680. So I bought two of these to SLI and H*LY CRUD ! What a difference in gaming.
Cons: No cons. Dont say price; high end cards ae always expensive.
Other Thoughts: I feel like nVidia pulled a fast one releasing the 780 ti cards so soon after the regular 780s. I ate a lot of crow selling them so soon at the newly discounted price.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Nice, sturdy, fast.
Cons: None really
Other Thoughts: I told myself I wasn't going to buy a GTX780, since I already had two GTX 680s in SLI, but I bought two of these to SLI as well. I was very excited, but honestly I cannot tell the difference with the upgrade. To be fair, it may be a driver issue, these cards are fairly new, but the game I play most often is SWTOR and to be honest, I am not getting anything more out of it with these cards (I thought if I cranked up the global settings higher it would be smoother but it isn't). Like I said, maybe my 680s were just too close to tell. Nice cards, just decide if you NEED an upgrade before such a large purchase.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: BIG! Bright and beautiful screen. Nice colors. Very tight dot pitch for text. Built in scaling ability (in case u run a 16:9 or 4:3 source). My last monitor by doublesight didnt have it and it made PS3 look fuuny all stretched out in 16:10.
Star Wars the Old Republic at 2560x1600 is PHENOMINAL. as Im sure all games will be.
Cons: None so far. The appearance is a little bland (brushed black finish) and the back looks odd being all aluminum (for heat disipation) but this thing is functioning well so far...
Other Thoughts: When I plugged in my PC via HDMI the picture only went to 1080p. Not unexpected, but a tad surprising since I know HDMI supports at least 1900x1200.
When I went dual-link DVI the picture auto adjusted to 2560x1600.
The monitor was VERY dull/dim when I was first tuning it and I was afraid that the 370 brightness was too low. Found out there is an eco setting in the menu defaulted to 50 %, turning the brighness wayyyy down no matter how you fine tune the osd. Crank it up a tad (I went 100%) and it is all good again.
I know it's not my place to tell you to watch which video cards you are using, but just remember that playing games at this resolution strains the card ALOT more than 1080 and 1900x1200. I am running two Nvidia GTX 580s and have not had the first sign of stuttering, even with all the eye candy turned on (cant wait for Kepler tho).
