- Had the video card for more than 8 months, works like a charm and runs everything on Ultra or High settings. Never overheats and easy to overclock.
- A little long.
- I bought it in a lower price wait for the right time.
For everyone having issues with crashing!

- works well (When it works!)
- Card will only run reliably using PCIE 2.0 on certain intel motheboards
For everyone having issues, please google this card with pcie 2.0 and intel boards.
I am only giving a 1/5 rating due to the fact that I had to spend 3 months without the card. And that gigabyte has not officially acknowledged and addressed this issue. Please choose another card in it's place unless you want a potentially buggy card.
- This card will not run using pcie 3.0 on certain motherboards (at least the early versions of the card).
Like a lot of people here, I bought this card, RMA'd this card only to get another that didn't work. Early versions of this (maybe more, I'm unsure) do not work using PCIE 3.0. Please set your montherboard to only use PCIE 2.0. Kinda sucks since I chose nvidia over ati for this reason. has been stable since though
Buy This Card If You Have a Z77 Motherboard!!

- Don't listen to bad reviews that provide very little feedback. I Had this card for 8 Months and it works like a dream. it runs cool with all 3 fans and quiet under full load i'm on ultra settings everything I throw at it. I am waiting til the price gets to about 350.00 and I'm buying another 1 to SLI. I haven't had a single issue with it and it's powering 3 monitors like a boss. I have a Asus Sabertooth Z77 and it looks great and runs perfectly fine.
- Gigabyte software is not the best, not enough to kick a star off my review, use MSI afterburner to balance the fans speed and adjust OC slightly and you'll be fine.
- Don't listen to bad reviews from bitter customers that had to go through the RMA and want to vent to the world. Go online and research actual reviews from professionals. I would recommend this to anyone that is looking for the best bang for their buck. Buy it and you'll be happy you did. GL HF!!
Don't buy this card if you use a Z77 motherboard

- When it works it works great and runs really well.
- It stopped working on my computer after about 2 months of use and even after an RMA it was still not working. Do not buy this card.

- -Super stable and cool under heavy load
-Excellent performance at 2560x1600
- -None so far
- I bought one of these cards when I upgraded. Installation was a breeze, the card is super quiet compared to blower style cards, and it takes anything you want to throw at it and devours it.
I now have two of these in SLI running a 30 inch monitor, gaming at 2560x1600, with absolutely every setting maxed out. Skyrim, TERA Online, Firefall (beta), Guild Wars 2, Crysis 2, DiRT 3.... all are just destroyed by these cards in SLI, and before SLI, they took a mighty fine hammering from the single card

- Combined with my i5-3750K, this card can handle Battlefield 3 with all the eye candy turned on. I bought a 7950 to play some online games and it couldn't hold a candle to what the GTX 670 can do. Do you really need a GTX 680? Do not pass this one up.
- It's a long card, so make sure that your chassis is long enough to fit it. Also make sure that your S-ATA connectors won't be blocked after it has been installed. Asus can be bad for placing their S-ATA connectors near the PCI-E x16 slots.
- Got it for a bit cheaper due to price match, and I know this graphics card will last me for 3 years or more.
Great card with small driver bugs

- -Runs everything at max
-Keeps under 60C at all times
-Can't hear it. Ever.
- - Gigabyte OC software is pretty bad. Causes crashes and sporadic fan spooling. Get afterburner or precision X instead.
- Fan spools to audible levels on boot. Not sure why. No harm done though.
- Awesome card at best price point. Would buy another if I could afford it!
Only reason that I wouldn't buy this card is if I were using a case with the Mobo mounted 90 degrees. Supposed problems with heatpipe orientation.

- Best price/performance ratio for current-generation, top-end cards
- Drivers have some issues. They're great for games, but at least on my rig there are some refresh or drawing issues in day-to-day Windows 7 usage. Nothing terrible, but if you, say, close a window, parts of the frame may not be cleared until another window overlaps it. Something to knock a star off for, but it doesn't affect overall performance. And if you're using this card, you're probably more interested in games than Excel anyway.
- Obviously ridiculously expensive, but if you *want* (nobody *needs*) to crank games up to 11, without completely blowing your budget on a 690 (or even a 680), this is the way to go. It's notably faster than a 7950 while being only slightly pricier, and nearly as good as a 680 (in fact, they're practically equal when both are overclocked -- 670 has more headroom). So really, I'd say it's a no-brainer, but if you're buying a card like this, you probably abandoned logic and rationality long ago.
