Pros: My first nVidia based card in a really long time...running with a 4770k and 16gb ram @ 1440p. I don't have all kinds of benchmark numbers, as I'm definitely more of a "casual" gamer these days...
at 1440p I don't have crazy high expectations but I am getting 50-60fps min with vsync enabled and all settings on "ultra" in games like Fallout 4 and Witcher 3. It's a nice improvement vs. my previous card (R9 380 4GB), which was playable but frames would dip into the 20's on that previous card.
this card runs nice and quiet and just oozes "quality" - the build quality is excellent and I like that it has a backplate.
haven't tried to overclock yet
Other Thoughts: I did want to underline what others have already stated: this card *is* BIG!! I have a pretty big case so I said to myself "meh it'll fit" but got a little worried when I went to install. It did go in but I only have about 0.5" clearance between the back of the card and my hdd cage. Highly suggest to measure and make sure this thing will fit before ordering...might save you a little grief.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: APEVIA CF12S-BK 120mm Case cooler
Pros: lots of room inside, easy installation of components. I like how there is a cutout behind the CPU so you can install an aftermarket mounting bracket/HS fan easily without taking out the motherboard. good options for cable management. installed a long vid card (HD5830) with no problem.
Cons: material a little too flimsy in some areas, in specific, the holes for the front fan wouldn't line up fore me, have it installed with 3/4 screws...not worth fussing too much over.
Other Thoughts: used to build the wife's pc, was actually a little jealous how easy it was to work inside this case compared to my bigger, bulkier, more expensive Antec case. FOR THE PRICE a very nice case.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: when it's working, good card for the price (got it sub 100)
Cons: within 6 months, card failed. video corruption, lost signal, etc. received a replacement card, which, to my disbelief and a hundred trouble shooting attempts later, also ended up being faulty (some type of issues).
Other Thoughts: to the manufacturer's credit, they did swap the card a second time with little hassle. the 3rd card works fine.
ok i won't say this is a bad brand over my bad luck, faulty hardware happens, but it was still a pretty big hassle and will be wary of the brand in the future.
