Great card wonderful performance 1/5/2017 3:18:25 AM

Pros: It doesn't make noise, mainly because pretty much anything you can run on it barely phases it, but the fans on mine have never even ramped up, even during extensive VR gaming.
200+ FPS in pretty much anything with varied settings, at least 30-60 where expected otherwise, never drops frames

Cons: Asus doesn't offer a trade-up program which isnt the biggest con, but I totally would've traded this in for a 1080 after realizing I had jumped the gun a bit (had already received my Vive tho...) Happy nonetheless, this card performs beyond expectations.

Overall Review: If you can't afford something MORE expensive, get this, simple as that.

Dependable 9/15/2016 6:40:05 PM

Pros: Zero issues, fans have held strong/silent, temps are low, couldn't imagine the 1000 series being better.

Cons: I got it on sale, couldn't imagine paying 900 for one.

Newegg will not help if item is damaged in transit 7/16/2016 2:09:46 PM

Pros: Good card when it works

Cons: If package is damaged in shipment Newegg will not help you. Your choice will be to go back and forth wih support until tine for manufacturer rwbate expires or not be allowed RMA if you submit rebate. Currently facing that situation.

Overall Review: Very unprofessional cusfomer service. Chat aggent hanged up on me when I asked for supervisor

You get what you pay for -- in this case, a wonderful card. 5/31/2016 4:43:09 PM

Pros: Stupid powerful. 2 of these is basically overkill for 1080p, but probably required for smooth 4k gaming.

Cons: pricey. at the time, money was not an issue for me. if i was building now, id probably look at last generations or hold out until the next cards launch to pick this bad boy up at a discount.

Overall Review: **these cards are very sensitive to voltage.** even though Asus practically begs you to overclock it, I would be extremely careful and make sure to use proper surge protection if doing so. An uninterruptible power supply (UPS) would be a very wise investment.

Great performance, but huge and overpriced 5/22/2016 11:06:01 AM

Pros: - Plays all my games cranked to ultra settings at 2560x1440 without a sweat
- Doom with adaptive v-sync turned on pegs 60fps constantly
- Makes a Titan look slow (but so does 760x2)
- Handles HBAO+, dynamic fur, PCSS, etc without any problems

- Low Temps with a super quiet fan
- White LEDs turn on when power cables are connected so you know you're good to go

Cons: - Does not OC very well beyond GPUTweak II default settings
- Card is absolutely HUGE -- Bigger than my ASUS ROG GTX 760x2 card -- did not have to relocate anything because I have a big case, but buyers beware
- Pulsing LED, like all ASUS cards I've owned, will not turn off, which is absolutely annoying
- Power LEDs also will not turn off -- even when the machine is off
- Seems to struggle with Tom Clancy's The Division (~45 fps,but that game is terrible anyway)

Overall Review: Given the upcoming release of NVIDIA's new architecture, I wish I had skipped this one and waited for a 1080. The price point can't be justified with brand new tech on the horizon. If you do decide to get this card and you're hardcore into overclocking, get the overclocked version. This one just doesn't overclock well, even with conservative settings. Even though this card is VR ready, I'd wait until the new NVIDIA architecture to dive into that.


Equipment:
AMD FX 6300 6-core 3.5 ghz factory OC to 4.1ghz
Sabertooth R2.0 mobo
16GB Ares G.Skill 1866mhz RAM
Thermaltake 850w power supply

Awesome Card! Price Dropped less than TWO weeks after I bought it though 5/10/2016 7:00:56 AM

Pros: - Ran Steam VR Benchmark and got the highest rating without any drops in frame rate
- Great tweaking software that comes with card
- Runs great with my ASUS ROG Maximus Hero VIII motherboard, great synergy between motherboard and GPU
- Works well with my Intel Core i7-6700k Skylake- ASUS AI works well with card

Cons: - It is a MASSIVE card! I had to move my SSD to make room in my Full Tower case as it took some space in my drive bay
- had to modify my back panel lanes just so it would line up in the slot correctly
- I had just bought the card less than 2 weeks ago and i has already dropped by $40 AND has a $30 mail-in rebate, so I feel taken advantage of on this, this being my first NVIDIA card

Overall Review: - I would reccommend this card if you're looking to be VR ready, but am disappointed that I paid $60 more than I should have which had me drop 2 eggs, otherwise would have been 5 eggs

Amazing GPU!!! 4/14/2016 7:35:24 AM

Pros: This GPU is nothing short of amazing! It looks great in the CS storm trooper case with the ASUS ROG Maximus VIII Formula MOBO. Just started playing Dark Souls 3 on this with everything maxed out and this card isn't even breaking a sweat rending it on a 21:9 2K Samsung monitor.

Cons: NONE

Overall Review: If you can afford this card BUY IT!!

I bought 2 one came faulty I need a replacement! (RMA) 4/10/2016 5:06:47 PM

Pros: - The first card I bought works fine and is a very powerful card on its own
- High speed 4k gameplay great for gaming on ultra settings with a solid frame rate

Cons: - It took me months to realise that one of my cards came faulty after months of troubleshooting fixing problems only for them to come back such as (frame drop, screen tearing, crashing, fan malfunction, etc....) I took out one card and tested it on its own and it worked flawlessly and tested the other to find it almost incapable to run without horrible screen tearing, frame drop, hard crashing, fan malfunction, etc...)
- I called Nvidia support to help fix the "problems"" I was having (which were just a faulty card), they helped me but I kept getting issues I recently called them about tearing issues, they helped me figure out the card was faulty. It sucks it took months for me to find this out...
- I need someone here at newegg to send me a replacement for my faulty card you sent. my order number was #244735524
- I do realize that it has been months but I when my initial problems were resolved they were only subdued every so often I got issues. Testing the card on its own wasn't something I thought I needed to do at that time, but the second time I got tech support they told me to test the cards one at a time to be definitely sure...
