The 780 windforce

GIGABYTE GV-N780OC-3GD REV2.0 G-SYNC Support GeForce GTX 780 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 HDCP Ready WindForce 3X 450W Video Card

Pros: Beast of a card. Maxes every setting on every game I have at 1080p@60hz. Only a select few games ever drop below 60 fps, and that's under EXTREME conditions. Runs cool, runs quiet, and the OC software makes for an easy OC. Pretty much a Titan for $300 less if you're running at 1080

Cons: The price is ridiculous, but AMD hasn't dropped their new line yet so the 780 is the only card that you should consider to buy in its price range. Don't get me wrong, you're getting what you pay for and then some, but it isn't exactly pocket change for this college student.

Overall Review: Ramen noodles for months

RMA

HIS IceQ Turbo Radeon HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 CrossFireX Support Video Card H787QT2G2M

Pros: Runs like a beast when it is working.

Cons: Random black screens of death while playing any 3d game so far. Evidently Sapphire 7870s were having similar problems. Huge pain; have to do a hard reboot every time it happens. Could be 5 hours after you launch the game, or 5 minutes.

Overall Review: I'm hoping I can redo this review after the RMA process. I really like this card, while it is working....
