Summary I could not get this card to be stable at stock clocks. The driver kept crashing and I got artifacts until my entire PC locked up during benchmarks. Stock clocks are 810 on core and 2001 on Memory. Once I changed the memory to 1800 it ran perfect. Most GTX 560s I've seen don't have anything over 1850.
Pros Can play any game with beautiful quality if you know how to optimize. Runs cool! Quiet
Cons Only 800MHz means this could be a faster 560, but the sacrifice is warranted in the WAAAY colder run temp. (you can buy an overclocked version here on NCIX if you want... its dual fan)
Summary I love ASUS products, and this card's smooth, quiet and cold running makes me proud of my choice. Its perfect for a budget gamer, and you could always SLI two of them together and get just as much performance without the heat of bigger cards.
Pros Just as capable as the 560 GTX DC Ti but, read cons! I got a free shirt when I got mine.. LOL "Compromise is for losers"
Cons Besides 1 cooling fan (Waste of PSU wattage and not really noticeably cooler..), a 16% Performance Difference (Ti is faster) AND from trusted dealers it's roughly $30 to $50 cheaper...varies on the deals you may find.
Summary I have this card (Mini-HDMI to HDMI FOR THE WIN) built with and Intel i7 950 CPU, 24gb of Corsair Vengence DDR3 1600MHz RAM on an ASUS Sabertooth x58 MoBo and everything is great. NVidia Control Panel on max settings, fast loads, great picture with my SyncMaster P2770FH, High FPS and no complaints!
Summary I got exactly what I wanted for with this item. For $150, the card performs good and has an attractive look. It would be nice if the fan exhausted out of the case, instead of ending an inch before the vent, but no big deal. Good buy
Cons Occasionally nvidia driver recover from crash
Summary Once in a while, nvidia driver crashed, the screen goes blank but the driver recover by itself. No harm done, just continue working. Asus didn't provide a mini HDMI to HDMI adapter for my GTX470, and the mount bracket need hand work to fit in the case. However, they seem to fix the cons with this card.
