Pros: Fast & Beautiful graphics when it works.
Cons: Gives random black screens. Does not matter if it is in game or just on the Desktop browsing the Internet. Only way to bring out of black screen is to physically unplug HDMI from back of card.
Overall Review: I RMA'd it to Gigabyte. That cost me approximately $18 to mail it from East Coast to West Coast. The entire process took about a month and a half. When I got it back, there was no report of their findings. The card still blacks out and Gigabyte will not return my emails. I installed MSI Afterburner and am just keeping the fans cranked, see if that works. Afterburner does not report anything near overheating either way. I may next try to flash the GPU Bios with NVflash. After that I will scrap the card and just use the i5 graphics because they work flawlessly and are not terribly bad (4670k). I will never buy another Gigabyte product again. I had a Gigabyte MoBo go bad on me too, but that was years back. I have not been too please with Nvidia drivers recently either. I would recommend an AMD card or the CPU graphics, please do not waste your time and money on this card. Hey Gigabyte rep, this was my RMA# USA-1430478. Please help!
Pros: not as good as anticipated from such a reputable company.
Cons: 1.) Has started to throw random Windows errors with the different crazy codes like 0x438yh84 (not a real code). It has been my experience in the past that this is an indication of a future crash, we will see. 2.) Drive not as fast my Corsair Force.
Overall Review: 204 GB of usable space after a windows 8 install or 223 GB minus whatever OS you use. These drives should state they are between 223 GB - 240 GB range in capacity. It just feels like false advertisement.
