Great card for the money! Runs alittle hot and you will not be able to overclock it much past what it already is since its running pretty hot. 70-75 degrees depending on room temp.
Waaaay overkill for 1080p, but damn does it run games well.
Ohhhhh my god. The speed. I am in love with this card. It's flawless. Temps are fine as long as you don't stick with the somewhat idiotic stock fan profile. Just bump up the fans some; they'll keep the card much cooler and stay pretty quiet. Plays any game on Ultra settings guaranteed, although that isn't saying much at 1080p :P. Minesweeper runs pretty damn smooth -^ Haha, I kid, I kid. Recently beat Crysis 2 easily just because of the extraordinary experience running at ultra settings across the board and still getting 100+ FPS constantly. Even with anisotropic filtering and MSAA up very high (can't remember exact numbers). Overclocks like a BEAST. This thing is a hot rod of graphics cards. I easily got it up +200 base clock and +300 on the memory (albeit with a bit extra mV), and that's definitely not all that it can do. I just don't want to keep it all the way up there because of the increased heat output and power intake. Either way, highly recommend this. I rate 6 stars. Yes, six. 5 stars plus a hypothetical 6th star.
Incredible - every game, maxed out - 60fps guaranteed - if you're at 1080p expect 100fps
Great card. Will play most games on ultra at 1440p 60FPS, ShadowPlay is neat, and mine, at least, overclocks really well.
I was never a power user and you could get by with a 960 but when I saw the 980 TI......I simply said take my money. This version isn't as powerful as the other partner cards but the clock speed as it is, was more than enough juice to run the most taxing games. I was also in the predicament because my psu was a 550 and nvidia recommends at least 600 so I wanted the most efficient version. If the Palit version was available, I would have picked one up but those are impossible to find so I ended up with this one.
Not the easiest thing to install - thought that i had a defective unit until i searched the web and found that BOTH not EITHER (As stated in the manual) power cables need to be connected. Rendering is much faster, and the only game played so far is Mad Max, under load the card is stable and looks gorgeous.
This card is beastly. I've barely begun to scratch the surface of its performance. Hopefully when all the new christmas games come out in november I'll be able to take it to the limit. Limiiiiiittt.
I bought this card after I found that it matched up on a bunch of charts and stuff I found on various forums as being a good balanced match for my CPU. I use it for graphics and video editing, and so far it has been a champ, except for one glitch in Illustrator: when I put a raster effect onto an object (drop shadow etc) it works fine, but when I apply that effect specifically to the stroke or the fill of the object I get a crash and it sends me to the EVGA website. Not sure what the deal is. If anyone from Adobe or EVGA is out there reading this, I'm all ears for solutions. I will say, of course, this thing tears through games like crazy, but maybe I'm questioning my decision to go with a GTX over a workstation solution like a Quadro - even though a Quadro of comparable stats would be way outside my budget. It seems like Adobe's support of GTX cards has been an evolving story recently, so maybe there will be some software/firmware/driver updates that fix this issue. Fingers crossed.
runs too hot in idle, still a very good gpu
