Excellent addition from Nvidia and Gigabyte

Pros: Stable gaming performance, Good cooling system and Incredibly low heating.

Cons: Overclocking , Bit Noisy running in full load.

Among the 200-250 $ graphics cards, i think this is the best card one can have. I was a bit confused at first whether to take the MSI or the GIGABYTE version , later i went for the GIGABYTE because of its higher warranty of 3 years. And , it didn't take long for me to realize that i made the perfect choice. I didn't expect such stable performance from this card, but it has been performing superbly. idle temp: 24-28 in Celsius and i saw a maximum of 62 in full load which is pretty impressive. Only problem with the card is when u OC it. But, i don't consider it as a big problem as i'm not a fan of overclocking my rig parts Hope, my review helps u in deciding a perfect GPU for ur rig.

Not so good, Nvidia's fault.

Pros: High clocks by stock, solid memory chips.

Cons: Bad heat dissipation on the memory chips, reference design resistors result in worst "advanced overclock" you can barely reach 1.2Ghz with this card

Better than Zotac, Galaxy, PNY, Zogis - Worst than MSI, ASUS and EVGA (if properly cooled).

Pros: very flexible fast and renders greatly definitely oc'ed to the max

Cons: if you attempt to oc it any higher you may have instability issues

i love the thing i have it as the master in my sli setup with evga sc in the slave position. when i got it it was pushing 1189 core clock which was definitely above specs and mem was 3008 which is norm i guess but the thing handled almost anything i threw at it in some games you will have to play just under high and some even medium but most run perfect in high. definitely a hot grab as these will sell off cheap new or used so they are worth the money as there not too expensive.
