Great Video Card

Pros: I bought this Card over 3 years, or 37 months ago, for $329, and I've had no problems playing any high end games to this date. All fans are still functioning and keeping it cool. Video is as sharp today as the first day I installed it. I never needed to overclock it which is probably why it has worked out so well for me. And it has many ports that I use for extra monitors and my 40"LCD TV. All the video out ports support audio as well as video so there's no need for separate audio lines.

Cons: No cons at all. Just keep it clean.

Overall Review: As long as you maintain it yearly by blowing out any dust that may build up you should have no trouble at all with it. I am surprised to see that it is still being sold today and the price is even higher now than it was when I bought it. Many cards are discontinued after the first year which shows this is a valued card even today. This is my third EVGA product and I've been satisfied with all of them. I'm happy to see I saved $130 by getting it when it first came out.

Average performance, Poor quality and design. Fans will fail for sure

Pros: FPS are about average depending on the game.
By the time I bought it, it had a reasonable price.

Cons: After more that two years of owning this gpu, there is only one big issue that should concern everyone. EVGA seems to care little about. Fans malfunctions are pretty common in this specific brand and series. To sum up, One of the fans spins at full speed and the other is stuck like if is trying to spin. Both will definitely overheat. I contacted EVGA and their fix is not the real solution. There's the fact that you can still RMA it withing reasonable time period. I just couldn't cause I took too long on reporting the issue and just swap to water-cooling since I couldn't fix it.

My advice: DO NOT BUY IT. plain and simple.

Great under 2 Years...

Pros: -Did everything I needed.
-Threw me into the game with BF4 and was able to compete with silk FPS.

Cons: I've been battling this odd crashing issue for the past month with multiple programs crashing my entire PC when the GPU engages more than just 20%. I've had the GPU for 20 months and it's super clean inside and out of my rig.
*Confirmed games BF3, BF4, and Evolve Stage 2. (All FPS games with higher'ish GPU standards)

Overall Review: I've done extensive testing for the past month. I know what I'm doing and the only time I can get it slightly stabilized is under what my old video card could do.
BF4 isn't even running how it used to, It's why I bought the thing!!! It as well crashes my computer now and I am unable to play.
I rather have my old over clocked Zotac GTX 560ti back, at least I could play BF4.

What a shame...

Lemon-aid

Pros: Worked as advertised for a short time.
EVGA support works fairly well.

Cons: Four months after install it started artifacting, at times corrupting the screen.
Replacement from EVGA wouldn't even trigger any functionality in Win 7.
Waiting for my replacement of the replacement that replaced the original.

Overall Review: I would not recommend EVGA products as anything other than what other vendors sell. While there are so many positive comments about EVGA support, that there are so many comments about EVGA support should raise a flag.
I asked about an upgrade path from 9xx to 10xx and was told there's nothing available. I'm expecting that when I get a somewhat working card that I will still want to keep EVGA support on speed dial.
Luckily for me, I kept the 770 card around that the EVGA was to replace and I haven't had any issues using that vendors products.

Waste of time for unknown Reasons

Pros: Decent upgrade from bad card like the GTX 660
Theoretically should give you alot more room to work with when playing big budget games
Good customer support

Cons: A massive unexplained stutter with when working with common hardware

Overall Review: After having the thing for several months, it was a big disappointment to attempt to play big budget games like Deus Ex:Mankind Divided and GTA only to find out that I can't play either without a massive stutter that, after talking to multiple support people, can not be explained or fix. By all rights and accounts if you have this card and a i5, you should be able to run games like these. And this card can not. If you're going to be upgrading or making a brand new setup, skip this and go straight for a Rx470 or 480. NVIDIA has been less than satisfactory on every front.

Not a Problem in the World

Pros: -Runs all games without a hitch
-Easy install
-Affordable

Cons: -Fans can get loud
-Only one DVI port and no VGA

Overall Review: I've had this card since March and it's been flawless. No issues with anything whatsoever. However, when buying this card, make sure your case has room for it as well as a proper power supply. I almost didn't have room for it. Other than that, it's a solid card for its price.

- Comes with everything you need to setup the card
- Great performance and quality
- Fans turn on when under load, good for preserving power and fan life
- Quiet
- Drivers included in case you don't have access to the internet for latest drivers
