Worked fine initially, failed horribly in the end 10/12/2016 10:01:22 PM

Pros: When it worked it was great! Ran quiet and could handle any game I played.

Cons: The card ended up not working with Windows 10. Anytime I installed the card it would lock my entire PC up. I do not know if it was a SW issue or HW. I removed all the SW, drivers, and cleaned the registry. Did a clean install and still locked up. W/o the card installed the PC works great. Unfortunately it only has a 1 year warranty and I could not return it. It would be great if there was another work around but I ended up purchasing a whole new card.

Overall Review: Would not recommend this card if you're running Windows 10.

Stock only GTX970 9/29/2015 1:24:42 PM

Pros: Bought to add to an existing GTX970 to run in SLI. Easy install with no problems/defects. Adding the second GPU increased my game performance by 40fps!

Cons: Reference type cooler is only adequate for stock clock speeds and tends to noticeable fan noise at full load. The GPU temp at full load and stock clock speed is 80deg/C so I won't be able to overclock this card.

Good for what you pay 8/27/2015 8:07:19 PM

Pros: Looks good in online pictures.

Cons: Feels cheap... is cheap.
Turbine fan makes noise almost similar to coil whine. Very annoying
PNY has a reputation for being cheap unless you pay for there higher tier products, everything about this card was just cheap. The packaging, the accessories, And the card itself.

Overall Review: Neweggs Customer Service is the best online retailer Customer service I have EVER, dealt with. Though I couldnt get a "cash" refund. They were able to Give me a newegg gift card for the price so I can purchase a new card for my trouble! Thumbs up newegg all day long!

Amazing Card 8/14/2015 6:09:26 AM

Pros: This thing handles everything I've thrown at it so far. I'm running an i7 (3.6GHz), 16 MB RAM, and Windows 10 and I've yet to see something it cannot handle on maximum settings. Battlefield 4 runs on Ultra around 130FPS, Grand Theft Auto V runs all settings on maximum (avoid that MSAA stuff though) at 60 FPS, and Skyrim is now a mod factory. It's easy to install, and works very well. If you're upgrading from another NVidia card (I had a 560 Ti) then you don't even have to reinstall the drivers (I did, just to be safe). The card is heavy, but three case screws holds it in place without an issue. Additionally, having the ability to record gameplay via software doesn't result in performance issues (I use OBS) anymore - so I can stream Diablo IIII and BF4 without any slowdown. I highly recommend this card.

Cons: None really. I know people have said the card looks cheap but I don't have a windows in my old case so I don't mind. It takes up a lot of room (what doesn't?) and the power cables face the side of the case as opposed to my old 560 Ti cables which faced the front. There's still plenty of room to hook up though, but people who are looking for a specific aesthetic look should be aware of that fact.

Overall Review: If you've got $300 to spend, this card is definitely worth your investment. Playing games with maxed settings has renewed my love for some of them. You won't be disappointed with this card.

Fast , Powerful , Easier on PSU 7/18/2015 8:12:04 AM

Pros: A great card.
Plays all my games maxed.
Direct-X 12 (when Win 10 is available)
Hangs with the R9 290/290x , better than R9 270-280x , and draws less power.
The main seller for me was that I could max out Battlefield 4.
The card is also pretty quiet.

Cons: none.

Overall Review: I was and still am an AMD dude , but their graphics cards nowadays draw WAY too much power. I needed a new GPU , and if I was going to stick with AMD/ATI I'd have to upgrade my PSU , which is more than I want to spend at this time. So I bit my lip and looked at nVidia. Found this , and have been blown away.

BF4 (and BF3) plays flawlessly maxed out , and when the new Star Wars Battlefront comes out , this card should do well too.
Especially using Direct-X 12 and Windows 10.

Amazing value! 6/22/2015 3:34:04 PM

Pros: High performance to price ratio compared to its big brother the GTX 980.
3 Mini DisplayPorts means you can connect 3 2k or 4k monitors to your single GPU!
Remarkably quiet for a stock air cooler.

Cons: 3 Mini DisplayPorts means you probably have to separately order a specific cable for each monitor depending on what they come with.

Overall Review: Bought one of these to replace my AMD R9 290 because AMD's Linux drivers are unstable as balls. Good investment, actually upgraded my overall performance as well. Getting a second one for SLI now that I have a 2k monitor and it's impacting my game performance.

It is a GTX 970! 6/16/2015 8:04:57 PM

Pros: GTX 970, alot cheaper than some of the other 970s you see out there.

Cons: Can is Noisy under load. Gets fairly warm 70c+.

Overall Review: I plan on swapping it to water cooling once I get the money for it. For now I have a case fan blowing cool air from out of the case right into the blower and has helped keep temps down.

Edited* 5/13/2015 1:04:41 AM

Pros: For the OC to work stable for me i had to MAX out core voltage to +87mV and check (unlock voltage control) do not check (force constant voltage) and i have fan speed set to 70% not 60%.

Cons: N/A

Overall Review: Everything is all good. But I just forgot some minor details for the overclock. because i wasn't in front the rig when i wrote it.
I haven't played a PC with out it crashing in such a long time since i was on Radeon 7790 Crossfire. I'm surprised i just didn't give up trying to figure out the problem, with Radeon Drivers. And then you have to pray theres a crossfire profile for your game, if not you'll be back on the forums trying to find what game profile barely allows you to run CF. After all that it would constantly crash everything 30-45 mins.
