Pros: Great Card, especially for the price, down to $190 during October, thats insane. Fantastic for those of us who aren't surpassing 1080p any time soon.
The dual fan cooling allows for great overclocking, mine is at 2.1ghz, no issues. Thats mind blowing for a GPU, Pascal really delivers.
Cons: -The Gigabyte Overclocking tool is half pro, half con. The pre-set OC mode simply doesn't work, which is annoying, but it is SO easy to set up a custom PC with this tool that I didn't even notice.
- On games that hog VRAM, this card will show its age soon at higher resolutions. Right now it can handle 1440p like a champ but it's already pushing 2.5 of the 3Gb on ultra in GTA V for me at 1080p. That being said, I don't think that a $200 card is really aimed at 2160 or really even 1440 gamers, if we're being honest.
