Pros: None so far.

Cons: Only two of the four modules would run at advertised speeds/volts. Other two wouldn't even POST the computer. I called to RMA these withing two hours of receiving them. What a bummer. Read below...

Other Thoughts: It appears newegg shipped me an already returned defective product. The packaging (not the shipping package) was torn at the bottom and the modules appeared to have been extracted from their package prior to my receiving them. They were covered with fingerprints and had smudges inside the plastic see through carton.

This is the second time newegg has done this to me so I'm knocking off eggs for that shameful practice. STOP selling USED and especially,.. DEFECTIVE merchandise!! NEW ONLY PLZ!

EVGA GeForce GTX 480 (Fermi) DirectX 11 015-P3-1480-KR 1536MB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: The reviews of this card is spot on.

These cards handle everything I throw at them with ease. I bench tested in single and SLI configurations and found that it scales very nicely. I get double the performance using two. I was expecting maybe an 80% performance increase but not 100%! WOW

By purchasing two, I got both cards with consecutive serial numbers which I like,.. knowing they came off the same production run.

The noise isn't as loud as others have noted unless you run the EVGA precision software to "up" the fan speed. I did choose to increase the fan speed slightly during the break in period and then let the built in fan profile take over after the first month of heavy gaming.

Cons: Absolutely none.

Other Thoughts: I ordered a MSI card then found out that MSI doesn't have a written warranty. Yes you heard me, they have NO WRITTEN WARRANTY. I asked newegg to cancel that order and they did so prior to shipping and immediately refunded my money....So I then bought a Gigabyte card and found that it was getting poor reviews so I refused delivery of it after it shipped...again, Newegg accepted the return and immediately refunded all my money including the shipping costs...I then purchased two of these EVGA cards and never looked back.

Thanks Newegg, you guys are earning a great reputation and continue to get my business.

GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 560 Ti - 448 Cores (Fermi) DirectX 11 GV-N560448-13I 1280MB 320-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Nice design. Great cooling ability. Overclock potential.

Cons: I was anxious to purchase this video card however, upon contacting Gigabyte, I discovered they do NOT have a written warranty. They replied "There has no any copy on warranty requires, All graphic cards carries an 3 year warranty from the date it was manufacture (according to serial number)"

Unfortunately, you have no idea of when that warranty began until you purchase the product and look at the manufacture date. So 3 years could actually be 2 years depending on when it was manufactured.

All other companies base their warranty on purchase date, not date of manufacture.

I'm refusing this delivery per Newegg's advice so that I can buy from EVGA.

Other Thoughts: Newegg rocks!

They're letting me refuse delivery and issuing a full refund. That's why I'm buying my EVGA card from NEWEGG!
