Only thing worse then the card is support 9/14/2011 6:25:45 AM

Comments: So do I start the 2 month process of trying to get the card replaced again? I think I'm going to cut my looses at this point. I can't stand the thought of fighting with tech support again. I think I'll just buy an ATI card not made my Gigabyte.

AVOID AT ALL COSTS!!! 9/2/2011 6:49:27 AM

Comments: (...continued) at my own expense. They kept them for a while and finally returned them, literally, saying they have been "tested". They worked for two days before the same issues that I sent them in with came back, although this time the pixel snow was in technicolor. I contacted Gigabyte again and demanded 'new' cards, which they finally approved and were nice enough to send a pre-paid shipping label for the two bad cards. A long time later, they sent me two different cards, same model though. I installed them in my machine and launched World of Warcraft when immediately turned my screens blank and crashed my computer. Rebooting the computer crashed trying to load the OS. I swapped out the video cards for the ATI 4670s I have on hand and everything's fine. I'm expecting a refund from Gigabyte, but bottom line for you reading this, this is a bad card design, there is no support, conclusion: AVOID THESE CARDS AT ALL COSTS!!!

Nice and cheap card. 7/26/2011 7:44:08 AM

Pros: This is a very good video card. Can run a lot of games at the highest settings. May not be the highest end video card, but still an amazing choice for the casual gamer. Runs Fallout 3 without a hiccup.

Cons: You need an alright CPU/processor for this amazing video card to run flawlessly. Anything above 2.9 GHz is enough to run most modern day games at highest settings.

Overall Review: Great card, I'd recommend it to anybody.

If you're having issues with this card... 7/1/2011 7:20:58 AM

Pros: A Gig of GDDR5 memory, SLI Supproted, It's not an ATI, Nice price for a low-end GPU. Fairly quiet.

Cons: Can't do 4-way SLI. Only 2-way SLI is supported. IMO, this card runs a little on the hot side. 76C=168.8F!!! If you've gotten yours over 76C you might want to consider replacing the Thermal compound on the heat-sink. The factory compound gets hard quickly at high temps. Too many hot-n-heavy gaming sessions and your card might start giving you fits and crashing because the GPU is overheating at idle due to the thermal compound hardening and not transferring the heat to the heat-sink. This is something I've seen with several GeForce-based GPUs from a number of manufacturers.

Also, after reading several of the reviews I noticed 2 things:
1) When people talk about downloading the latest driver from NVIDIA and how they don't work, I have to laugh at you. These cards are only BASED on NVIDIA's chip-sets.
If Gigabyte built the card, you HAVE TO GET THE DRIVERS FROM GIGABYTE. Using drivers from a different manufacturer might cause more problems and even damage the GPU. Don't mix-n-match!

Overall Review: I also saw in several reviews that people running Win7 seem to be having the most issues. Here's a thought: Go back to XP! OK, set up a dual-boot and load XP. Do all the updates and bring all the hardware up to date too. I'm talking BIOS updates, micro-code for your HDDs and burners, sound cards, Mice\joysticks, your MONITOR and anything that can possibly be updated. Do these things BEFORE installing the card in XP. Then do a clean install of the latest driver from Gigabyte and proceed to test for stability. If you can't make it crash in XP then the problem isn't with this card, it's with your other hardware.
Now that your hardware is up-to-date, try running Win7 again and see if you can crash it. If you do crash it, you may want to try a clean install of Win7 and repeat the XP experiment steps, installing the video drivers last on a clean install. These basic steps could mean the difference between enjoying your favorite games or filling out an RMA request.
Good luck. Hope this help
