Great card

Pros: Cool, quiet and fast.

Cons: None.

Overall Review: Been running for a month on mild overclocks (+150 core, +200 mem) and have not yet run into a GPU related issue. Also, I upgraded from a 680 (already pretty big), and found that the 780 is at least a finger width longer than the 680 and barely fit in my case.

Most Critical Review

Solid performer but difficult to live with

PC Power & Cooling ZT Series 750 Watt 80+ Bronze Fully-Modular Active PFC Performance Grade ATX PC Power Supply (OCZ-ZT750W)

Pros: -Good performance -Modular factor makes for good cable managment

Cons: -PSU cable is on the short side -Taking out the cables is slightly difficult -I can no longer live with this PSU. After a couple months the fan is on at what seems to be 100% at all times. Only a complete shutdown and restart fixes this problem (a simple restart does not fix it) and once it gets up to heavy load, the fan doesn't stop. It is bothersome for someone who keeps their computer on nearly 24/7 like me. I've read of instances on OCZ's support forums where people RMA and receive a product that will go faulty within a few days. I do not want to spend money on shipping just to receive loud PSU's over and over. Will be swapping out for something quieter.
