PNY GeForce GTX 670 DirectX 11 VCGGTX670XPB 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

1 out of 5 eggs Died after 13 months and PNY wouldn't warranty! 05/08/2014

This review is from: PNY GeForce GTX 670 DirectX 11 VCGGTX670XPB 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Worked ok for a little over a year. Played most games at max settings on 1680x1050.

Cons: Unbelievable that the card would just die after 1 year. I had proof of purchase from Newegg and I thought it had a lifetime warranty, but because I didn't "register" the card at PNY website, they would not honor the warranty. Plus, out of the box, the card lacked a serial number sticker that was needed to register, although I did not realize it because there were 3 other stickers on the card! I will never buy a PNY product again.

Other Thoughts: Terrible experience with PNY. Would not recommend any of their products after this experience.

XFX Double Dissipation Radeon R9 290X DirectX 11.2 R9-290X-EDFD 4GB 512-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card
  • Verified Owner
  • neweggOwned For: 1 day to 1 week

Pros: The card produced a jaw dropping, stutter-free performance improvement compared to my previous GTX 670 SLI setup. The fans are quiet, even under 100% load. The build quality and style of the card are outstanding, by far the best looking graphics card I have owned.

Cons: Expensive and big. This is a long card - I had to move a hard drive down in order to fit it in my case.

Other Thoughts: First impressions are important. I was impressed with the build quality, packaging, and had no issues upon installing and loading up the latest AMD drivers (14.4). I played Splinter Cell Blacklist and Sleeping Dogs with everything maxed (with 4XMSAA) at 1920x1080 and the I instantly noticed the improvement in frame smoothness and no tearing compared to the GTX 670 SLI.
