  • newegg Ultra Durable VGA Gigabyte’s UDV board employs 2 oz Copper PCB, 1st tier memory, Japanese solid capacitors, ferrite core chokes and lower RDS (on) MOSFET, resulting in 5% - 10% lower GPU temperature, 10%~30% better overclocking capability and 10%~30% less power switching loss

The latest unique technology combines fin with clip module in a special triangle shape. With the original anti-turbulence structure plus the new triangle cooling design, it enhances the efficiency of heat dissipation dramatically by minimizing the flow of turbulence between fans. It’s proved that the temperature of GV-R797OC-3GD is reduced by 15% compared to stock fan by "Triangle Cool" Technology design.

Meh 1/22/2016 8:55:53 AM

Pros: Wasn't a bad card.... when it was working.

Cons: Failed shortly before 3 year warranty was up. So far the RMA process has been a complete nightmare. A month later and I still cannot use my desktop for lack of a video card. Gigabyte tried to low ball me with a nvidia 960 to replace the failed 7970. Honestly its insulting that they would offer a card that is around 17% inferior to the card that failed. It took over a month to end this RMA nightmare. I will never buy another Gigabyte product again. Its a shame really because their product quality is quite good, their support is just absolutely awful.

Awesome reliable card!!!! 6/11/2015 6:31:04 AM

Pros: I have owned 2 of these since late 2012. No problems, and they play every game i own. GTA5 plays nice. One system is i7-920 oc 3.6 and a i7 3770k stock, no need to oc yet.

Cons: none, only reason i am upgrading now is so my kids can get these as upgrades.

Overall Review: I break all the rules, when its time to clean it out i use my cheap 2hp air compressor and just blast away. never hurt anything. but i dont try to blow the fans smooth off of them. lol

Great card at the begining 2/13/2015 2:01:04 PM

Pros: Great card ran everything I wanted
good cooling
good power
not necessary to over clock

Cons: weak fans
got decently loud when fans pushed 60-70%
This is on the longer side of owning this card I have begun to notice fan warp-age or misalignment over time, * note I have only cleaned the card twice with canned air duster*

Overall Review: ok so I purchased this card on 5/27/2013, I have noticed the last fan in the line of 3 has started to wobble and occasionally rubbing the walls of the fan well making fan hitting cable noise almost. this is very annoying, it tends to start around 45-60% fan speed and above is just awful.

1 Star for fragile fans & poor RMA service 1/9/2015 5:28:16 PM

Pros: -Initially I listed the 3 year warranty as a pro, but due to the RMA process being insanely slow and frustrating, this is no longer a pro. More like a false promise.
-Card is very fast, you can play any game on max at a high resolution and it works great

Cons: -Card is massive, you better have a full size case AND empty room in the hard drive bay
-3 fragile fans. Doesn't sound like much, but remember, if your fan breaks then the card breaks. The mobo wont POST without the fans working. One of my fans literally broke from an AIR DUSTER, blowing out the dust.
-LOUD. I thought 3 fans would make it so it would be quieter, but no, it still gets very loud under moderate load.
-RMA process very slow. If you aren't prepared to go a (MONTH at the very least) without your grpahics card, you might as well ignore the 3 year warranty.

Overall Review: I bought this card thinking that if I paid the premium and got a super nice card, then I could use it for 3 or so years until it was time to upgrade again. Boy was I wrong. Due to the shoddy-at-best RMA process and the fan eventually breaking over nothing, I'm giving this 1 star.

I spent $400 on this card, but I will never buy a gigabyte product again. If you think a gamer can go a month without a graphics card then you don't understand your customers.

Amazing 12/1/2014 3:27:06 AM

Pros: Cooling, ports, constitution, speed, longevity.

Cons: I only bought one.

Overall Review: I bought this card in 2012 and paired it with a 1090 black 6 core Thuban, that I bought in 2011. These two pieces of equipment are amazing. Since then I've bought a 4770K and 780 TI. Guess which system I'm posting this from. The Thuban. It really is just that good, and I've no reason not to use it. I use my monitor input control to switch over when I play PS2 or EVE, but other than that it just sets there. Oddly this system, at 3.7 ghz, will match any setting the other computer will, with only frame rate drops, but for a game like PS2 they can go into the 20's. Honestly this is the best computer equipment I've ever owned. The 4770 wasn't bonded correctly to the lid and was soon replaced by the 4790, and the 780, although a good card, was way overpriced and soon replaced too. Honestly, the purchase was a waste of time and money. Not this system, it's a beast and is still rockin. Just an honest review from a real customer.

Just... Bad 10/26/2014 11:21:12 PM

Pros: None...

Cons: Blue Screens, Crashes.... Makes me not want to buy another gigabyte or AMD card... ever....

Overall Review: I'm not sure if my experience has anything to do with win 8 compatibility... but I've never been able to fix the issue with trying several different drivers, roll backs, new drivers, etc.

Works Great, but mine is dieing 8/17/2014 2:02:38 PM

Pros: -Runs Everything with 60 fps or higher
- Control Center works perfectly
-Has Support over many Windows versions and Linux
-Its Fast and clan play the newest video games

Cons: -Its Loud
- Can get extremely hot sometimes
- Tends to be buggy or crash

Overall Review: My Video card hasn't died yet but i feel like it will soon, I've owned it for about 4-5 months now and it has now been lately crashing on me extremely, I'll either get the normal for me the blue with a bunch of lines going through it type of crash requiring me to completely restart my pc's hardware, or just lately having my graphics card just go off and i cannot see anything at all on my computer but i can hear what is going on like Skype or a game that was playing
