Cons: - Drivers were kinda hit & miss but since the 14.12 'Omega' driver update, all has been smooth.

Pros: - 4GB of VRAM- 512bit bus- can run Skyrim at 60+ FPS while I have 100+ mods running (including ENB)- Solid construction, adequate heatsink & cooling
My last cards were two GIGABYTE Windforce 7870s and this was a worthy upgrade. Card is still running with no issues (I saw some comments regarding dead cards).I had some BSOD issues but since I updated the BIOS on my motherboard I haven't had any (*knock on wood*).I look forward to future cards from GIGABYTE

Pros: Worked like a charm, no performance issue.Quiet
The card completely died and stopped functioning 3 months into use.

Cons: -Fans much louder than comfortable when operating above 75%-Terrible BIOS software, led to a bricked card

Pros: -Good performance value-Convenient switch for Power and Quiet profiles-No graphics card sag in vertical tower orientation as in some ASUS models
I'm using this card to game on a Samsung U28D590D monitor at 4K resolution. As can be imagined about a sub-$500 graphics card, you obviously won't be able to max everything out on every game, but damn if it doesn't get close. The performance is extremely good for a single GPU and I'll be adding a second one for 60 FPS capability. That being said, I usually have to play the more demanding games with my noise cancelling headphones, due to the fans being loud enough to be easily audible over 10 feet away. While not a dealbreaker, investing in this card might require a second thought if you're using speakers or a TV exclusively for audio.

Cons: Card failed within a year. Garbage Customer Service from Gigabyte.

Pros: Great FPS on high end games
Bought this card and was initially happy with it. About 7 months in to ownership I started experiencing system crashes, coloured lines across the screen, and BSOD when playing graphically intense games.Reinstalled OS, same issue. Took card out and used onboard video, problem went away. Sent for RMA to Gigabyte, and their communication was HORRIBLE throughout. First, they did not even notify me that the RMA was approved and I only discovered by signing back in to their hard-to-find RMA support page. Then after I shipped it to them (at a cost of $40) they didn't bother updating me on ANYTHING. The email I received was that they were sending the card back. I checked the support site and the notes mention "no trouble found, tested multiple configurations" -- so no one bothered to contact me to ask any further questions.There goes $40, and I'll be getting back the same card without any repair... and I'm out a video card that supposedly has a 3 year warranty.NEVER AGAIN GIGABYTE -- STAY AWAY
