BAD INVESTMENT! GIGABYTE RMA SUCKS!
Pros: The card has a huge heatsink and no fans, and is thus quiet. And I paid a premium for it to be quiet.
Cons: Within 6 months of light gaming use, no overclocking, the card has gone bad. After minutes of playing a game artifacts start to appear and eventually I get a BSOD with display driver cause. I have a temperature monitor running and noticed that this happens when the GPU reaches 65 degrees Celcius. The computer and games run fine with the i5-2500k processor embedded graphics. It is clearly a hardware problem with the Gigabyte graphics board. I RMAed the board and sent it at my own expense, and Gigabyte returned it as is saying they did not find any fault. The over $100 I paid for the board seem to have gone down the drain. Stay away from Gigabyte brand of products. They do not seem to have the right skills and process for repairs!
