3+ Years 10/8/2013 7:41:46 AM

Pros: I've had this GPU for over 3 years now. I've never had any issues. This was a component for my first build back in 2010. I am just now replacing it to keep up with next-gen games. Still runs strong though and am sad to say goodbye. Ran like a champ.

Cons: None

Died after about a year 1/29/2012 12:50:37 PM

Pros: It was a great card, but after I isolated that it was the cause of my system being very unstable, it's taken almost a month of working with ASUS to get it replaced. Asus sent a 465 as replacement, which is inferior to this card. So the saga continues

Cons: ASUS support, I've heard so many good things about it, but first hand experience has been slow and painful, and having them send me the wrong card is really frustrating.

ASUS repair facility leaves much to be desired 3/20/2011 10:04:22 PM

Pros: Decently priced for a standard GTX 470 at the time I purchased. I purchased two of these to run Folding@home and other GPU compute applications with, and the performance is excellent.

Cons: While one of the two cards has been reliable, the other card has not - it has been responsible for many "The video scheduler has encountered an unexpected fatal error" blue screens, produces artifacts in games, and errors in the OCCT GPU test.

I have sent this back to ASUS twice now, and am dissatisfied with their repair service. The first RMA number took 4 days to be issued. The card returned almost as bad as it originated - more blue screens and errors in the OCCT test, none of which were symptoms when the second card was inserted in place of the first.

So I called for RMA this time in an attempt to get an advance RMA, but this was refused. At least I got my RMA number the next day! The card came back last week, and is producing errors again!

I am not sure what I am going to do next about this. I just need ASUS to swap out the bloody card for a different one. My Newegg RMA period has expired and I am tired of ASUS sending my back the same card and not repairing it!

Overall Review: This was an unexpected experience with ASUS. I have used their boards is many machines to my great satisfaction and have been recommending their parts for friends' builds in my college's gaming club, where several people each semester build high-end machines to take to our LAN parties.

I am not sure I can recommend ASUS's video cards at this point. While I understand that failures are going to happen at times in products this complex, I am very frustrated that ASUS still has not returned me a reliable card after two separate RMAs, the latter of which I enclosed a note stating my experience with the previous one and asking that the card be tested very thoroughly before being returned. For what I paid in return shipping I could have bought the EVGA competition!

For now I would recommend looking to EVGA for NVIDIA video cards - I have seen a very low failure rate with these in our club. Some other brands may be OK as well but I do not have enough experience to make other recommendat

Good card, but runs HOT and resizing resolution 2/28/2011 12:39:42 PM

Pros: Great and fast video card, works very well whit CS5.
However runs hot on factory cooler. I had to buy Zalman for it and it keeps temp and noize down.

Cons: Dont know what is the cause of it but this card started to resizing the screen resolution to 1440x900 for dual monitor setup. The default screen resolution is 1680x1050. So disabling dual monitor from nvidea control panel and re-enabling thru windows desktop setting solves this issue until next restart.
This card is running on Asus Rampage 3 formula, w/ 12gb of Ram and i7 950 CPU

Overall Review: newegg - I would like to know where does the first review went? this is the second time Im posting it.

Good Card but runs little hot 2/27/2011 11:39:03 PM

Pros: Great and powerful cad. Adobe CS5 runs on it like a camp, I like it. I did not use any overclocking, just watever default works great.
for other see below

Cons: However it runs little to hot on factory cooler, I had to buy a Zalman VF300 cooler for it, and it helped a lot to keep temp down.
Also it started having a problem with the resolution every time I restart PC on dual monitor setup video card changing screen resolution to 1440x900 form 1680x1050. I have tried installing different driver versions and it still does the same thing resizing to 1440x900. However for some strange reason it does not resize monitor resolution on single monitor setup. What could cause the problem. Running Vista 64bit on Asus Rampage 3 Formuma, i7 950 cpu, 12gb of Ram
