This review is from: EVGA GeForce GTX 970 04G-P4-1972-KR 4GB SC GAMING, Silent Cooling Graphics Card
Pros: This card is truly a game changer. Absolutely surprised me how well it actually performs. I have two of them in SLI and from my experience, when compared to my friends computer with 290's in XFire, they perform almost the same at 1080p. These cards will play any game you want at the highest settings possible. In Battlefield 4 on ultra settings I get about 150+ FPS. Far Cry 3 maxed a get 110+. I run them with ASUS 144hz monitors in surround and although surround has it's issues they work very well. They kill everything and they are the best GPUs I've ever owned. For this price they can't be beat.
Cons: The coil whine is very real. Very very real. The fans also tend to become hair dryers if it gets too toasty in your case. However, that's a small price to pay. Also, if you have speakers or headphones you won't hear it at all.
4k gaming is a bit out of their reach. It can be done, I wouldn't try it will less than 2 of the cards, but it isn't brilliant. The bus width is just too small. However this means that they are ideal for 1080p and even very good for 1440p.
Other Thoughts: When I got these cards I put them in my computer installed drivers and that was it. No problems since, and a very easy process. SLI is working extremely well also. I would recommend these cards to absolutely everyone. I've had a 780, and a 290, and I can tell you one thing, the GTX 970 blows them out of the water.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Wasn't too expensive
Good for gaming
Cons: Dead sub-pixel, meaning it is lit up red whenever it is on a white or light colored background when on a dark background it is nearly black, I used this monitor for about a week before I noticed it, in the left bottom center portion of the screen. Its not too bad though, it is only one pixel for now, and I only notice it when I am looking for it.
When I first turned it on it was like seeing double, all the letters you could see had a double lighter letter just next to it. This was because of some of the settings BenQ had set up as default, however I changed them around and took that effect out.
Other Thoughts: You need to know how to set up the monitor how you like it, and when it comes from the factory the picture may look like the monitor is malfunctioning, but if you play around with the settings you may be able to fix it for your eyes. It is good for games, but I am very disappointed in BenQ for that dead pixel.READ FULL REVIEW
