Patrick, Chester Tech-Geek, Enthusiast, PC-gamer

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Easy installation, no hassle. Just a case of plug and play.
Overclocked settings once drivers are installed.
Performs beyond my expectations, with most of the latest games running at max/ultra settings.
Capable in running dual monitors, and SLI
Nvidea GeForce experience program is frequently updated, and allow you to optimise every game for the best visual performance
No-overheating problems. (Idle temperatures 22'C, and full load 52'C using a Corsair Graphite 600T case, powered with i7 4770K cooled by H100i)
Bad points:
Takes up 3 PCI back plates space
Asus GPU tweak software could be an eye sore (but works perfectly at monitoring GPU temperature, GPU usuage and voltage etc.)

James,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Excellent performance, Runs everything I throw at it on ultra quality with full view distance with lowest frame rate of 42.
Will be buying a second card to run SLI when i can afford it.
Bad points:
Very long card needs plenty of space and also takes up 3 slots due to the cooling system, quite expensive.

james, Derby

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
Works as it should what more can I say?
Bad points:
Works as it should but beware this is a monster and you need to ensure it will fit in your case. It generates A LOT of heat so make sure the airflow and case cooling is up to the job.
It also came with a free game.
The 'free' game (worth all of £7.99) is almost impossible to download.
the process is so complicated and convoluted i gave up. at one point you are taken to a site where you have to click on pictures of cats FFS!!!! A quick Google will show you hundreds of complaints so if this 'free' offer is is something that makes you decide to buy don't bother

Kevin, Birmingham Thirties male IT Consultant

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Blistering performance with an intel 3750 and 32gb of ram. Crysis 3, assassins creed 3 and world of Warcraft all in top res with everything turned on. Beautiful card if you have the cash.

Quiet running despite 2 fans on board, and medium power drain for the card type. OC speed adds additional performance boost automatically.
Bad points:
The card is deep and long and requires a 6 pin pci power as well as a 4 pin pci power plug at the same time. You can't daisy chain these as they need to be separate from the psu. If you have a hard disk bay which lies equal horizontally to where the pci-e slot is then this card will not fit in the case due to lack of space limited by the hard drive bay due to its length.

If you have the psu, the case space and the cash then this card is fantastic.
