Very good and makes miners mad cause this has a Low Hash Rate haha I love these new GPUs sure a bit pricey but keeps miners awayAug 26, 2021 20:51
From top to bottom, the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3060 has been designed to push performance boundaries. A fresh design and more metal surrounds a grouping of Axial-tech fans that leverage a new rotation scheme.
Great card if you can get it for a legit price. Thank you Best buy for making it so I could buy this video card.
Able to unlock 70% of the full hash rate mining ethereum. LHR doesn't really make a difference anymore. Able to achieve 36 mh out of the 47 that the card is supposed to do mining.Oct 08, 2021 12:00
Best overall brand for gpus, this one satisfies all my needs when it comes to gaming and video editingNov 06, 2021 03:00

Perfect graphics card for your PC setup. Now I can edit videos seamlesslyNov 12, 2021 16:48
Slightly more expensive than other 3060s on the market but the build quality is excellent. Thanks Best BuyOct 19, 2021 07:18
Really great! It came as expected with a lot of cool designs.Oct 30, 2021 13:11
I am really impressed with the performance of this card. A bit expensive though.Oct 13, 2021 07:46

Best, most stunning video card I have ever had. Love the look of this card and like the minimalist rgb. The only downside is that me pc isn't visible. This card is great stock out of the box and with proper fan speed tweeks can keep it running at full bost clocks constantly. Not very overclockable due to not being able to increase power limit, but this really isn't an issue. If not interested in the silver and white look, you should save your money and go for something like the EVGA XC3 ultra. Similarly performance but $150 less.Sep 07, 2021 14:55
The card is great, I find FPS limits in select games that have them. I average 180 FPS on ultra most games. That works well with my 144hz monitor. I see people complaining about noise level so I did tests I only really heard the card when it was air starved. I average 70 degrees while gaming and can’t really hear it with proper air flow. The card does put out heat. Can heat up my gaming room if door is shut. All in all amazing card. Next up is water cooling and oc.Oct 14, 2021 06:40
Finally after 7 months of waiting trying my luck with new eggs stupid drawings and getting past the scalpers I am finally able to pick a custom PCB card for retail. This thing is a beast and performs more than enough for rendering in 4K and scrubbing than the 3090. The 3090 is just a flex and a reason to burn your money. Grab a 3080 or 3080ti at retail you won’t regret it.Aug 21, 2021 01:09
No real issues. Temperatures are OK, it's a 3080, plenty of power. Price is high, but that's expected.Oct 01, 2021 16:18
Amazing card. Been looking for one for a while and they don't seem to drop online. Was able to pick up 1 in store. Amazing Card, great looks, fits my build well!Aug 20, 2021 23:05
Worked perfect for my Ice Build Best card money can buySep 03, 2021 06:47
I absolutely love my Vision 3080. I have a mostly white build, contrasted with some black and a little RGB. I have been running this for almost a year now without a hiccup. If you can get this at MSRP, or even a little over, its a great investment!Oct 08, 2021 20:42
White and stunning the metal plate is what makes the card really pretty the RGB not so much it looks dullAug 30, 2021 14:33

Great card, runs really quiet, no coil whine whatsoever. Benchmarks great. This isn't the fastest 3080, but it does the job for sure. I'm not terribly picky when it comes to which card I have, given the situation with them, but I am coming from a 2080 and it is miles above it in performance. My last card was a Gigabyte as well, and was also solid in every way.Nov 03, 2020 21:55
The GeForce RTX 3060 Ti lets you take on the latest games using the power of Ampere—NVIDIA’s 2nd generation RTX architecture. Discover incredible performance with enhanced Ray Tracing Cores and Tensor Cores, new streaming multiprocessors, and high-speed G6 memory.
TL;DR: Buy this product if it is in stock and if you need a graphics card because it is amazing, but don't fear if you don't get it for AMD and Nvidia's new offerings in Q 1/2 of 2021, may provide the gpu that could be a better fit for you.
I got this product after refreshing the page many times on launch day and was one of the few souls who got it, I wish luck to the others who are trying to get it. Firstly, I use a egpu (external Graphics Card Unit) when I game because of my personal situation, and I was able to get it up and running within a few minutes. All of my games are amazing compared to my previous card (gtx 960) and I was able to play Battlefield 1/V, Fallout 4/76, Skyrim SE, GTA V, and RDR2 all at 60 fps+ on 4k High/Ultra settings with 1% lies in the low 50s fps at worse (RDR2 during a pretty strenuous scene) and 0.1% lows in the high 40s fps (also in RDR2). But please remember, even with my relatively good egpu set up, it normally gets no more than 80-95% then what you get in desktop, so your milage may very.
Thermals: It never got more than 72°C in my 1 hour stress test in unigen heaven with the very quiet stock fan curve that got to no more than 41%. The physical card is simply beautiful and it seems to use all of the metal as a heat sink and (don't touch the card at home, I was just curious for this review) gets quite uncomfortably hot, so don't touch your graphics card while it's in usage even though that should be obvious because it is a computer part. It admittedly warmed up my room by about 1°C with room set at 21°C to 22°C after about 5 hours of continuous usage (along with my 25w laptop and my smaller bedroom, this is an uncontrolled variable but is interesting nontheless). The airflow and cooling for the card is outstanding considering it is a 200w card and is smaller than my evga twin fan edition of my previous gtx 960. Great stuff!
Overclocking: With there being quite a bit of thermal head room, I felt confident in the cards ability to I overclock, and I was right. I was able to oc it with the core at 2085 mhz (+150 cc) and it was stable during my 2 hour stress test of me playing GTA V story mode. I was able to get it to 2110 mhz (+175 cc), but it was a tad unstable if it stayed there, and would normally fall back down to 2085 automatically in order to not crash. With the memory clock I was able to get a +1400mhz on the memory and it remained stable and there was no artifacting after that same stress test on GTA V. Ii was able to get about 3%-12% fps performance gains, which is astounding, but the average was more like 6.5-8.5% fps gain. With the stock fan curve and with these overclocking settings, it got to 54% fan speed at 79°C, and with my manual fan speed setting of 72% it sat at 75°C. I would suggest using the auto curve if you are a bit sensitive to noise, but if you're fine with a little bit of fan noise, I would suggest raising the fan speed slightly higher like I did. Overall, it's very impressive from my perspective. Note that overclocking may void manufacturer warranty on some products and may not give same results, so use at your own risk.
DLSS and RTX: I really only play one game that uses either that I care to use and that is rtx minecraft which works perfectly at 4k ~55-60fps and looks stunning. It uses DLSS for the performance gains of from what I can tell of about 15-20+ fps to make it go from playable to very useable. DLSS at this point seems to be very a future oriented technology which is nice, because it gives me some more hope that I will be able to use the 3060ti for longer than I would otherwise. But, right now it is still a very impressive technology.
Overall: This is a great product for $400 and although a bit more vram would have been nice, for $400 there is no question that this is an absolute buy. Although the review shenanigans that occurred around this launch were quite suspect, this product is still very good and I recommend buying this model or any other 3060ti model if it is under $430. RTX in my eyes is still in it's infancy, but very much a product to be used, and DLSS along with Nvidia broadcast is also amazing. Best Buy pickup was fine and they got it too me a day later than expected, but they brought it out my car within a few minutes when I did go to pick it up. Thanks for my long ramble, and I wish you luck on getting this card, or any card for a good price this holiday season.

Performs very well for the money. Beats a 2080 Super and is $300 less MSRP. Sleek looking card, honestly more appealing than the AIB partner cards.
I was able to get this on release day. Contrary to popular belief (and a shocker even to me), Best Buy did a much better job implementing different mechanisms to prevent bots from taking over with their queued/gradual release system and additional human verifications at checkout. It wasn’t without a few bugs though depending on whether or not you were actually able to place your order. I know many others were able to add to cart and take it all the way to shipping/pick up location but no stores were shown as available at that point (this card was only available for ship-to-store/store pickup on release). I think it’s only going to get better though once these small bugs are fixed.
I haven’t been a Best Buy customer for close to a decade but after this mostly good experience, I can say they’re better than Newegg and that they are actually trying to prevent bots from buying stock whereas Newegg won’t even turn on Captcha because it “hinders the checkout experience.”
Take it from me, a pessimistic graphics-card seeker. One recommendation I do have for anyone reading this is to add all the cards you want to your Saved Items List on the mobile app and periodically check it to see if there are releases. You’ll see stock changes on the list itself so you don’t have to go through each item page. I think you’re more likely to stumble upon releases than waiting for a stock drop notification on a Discord server, which would be too late by the time you get it. On release day, I did this and beat stock drop notifications by a solid 5 minutes. I’ve found most Best Buy drops to occur on weekdays between 7:30-9:30am (PT). Make sure to have your payment information in your account in advance and use the mobile app for quicker checkout. Keep it up, you can get one.Dec 22, 2020 22:15
Ridiculous performance to the price. I've been playing Cyberpunk 2077 with a 3440x1440 monitor and it's absolutely killing it, despite everyone talking about bugs and performance issues. If you find the opportunity to buy this or any of the 3000 series cards, jump on it. I'm coming from an RX 470 so this is a huge upgrade for me.
In my Cooler Master NR200, I'm getting a max temperature of 65 C, and idle is around 30 C.
It also overclocks pretty nicely. My core clock is at 2070 mhz and memory at 8000 mhz and it holds both with ease.Dec 18, 2020 21:47
I didn't even know that they were still selling these FE cards at MSRP with all of the stock problems and tariffs raising prices, but Best Buy came through. I learned about a drop of cards on the 9th from a discord with drop notifications, and with the 2FA and app I actually got a card. The build quality is amazing on this card and it runs Cyberpunk at 1080p any settings with ease.Feb 13, 2021 23:10
The card has exceeded my expectations, whether it be Black Ops Cold War or Cyberpunk 2077, this card can do it all for an amazing price. Frame rate is always high even maxed out I still am well above 60, on Red Dead 2 for example the graphics are beautiful and I’m still well above 100 FPS. The card not only performs well but also looks amazing too, if you can get your hands on one get it ASAP you won’t regret it.Dec 22, 2020 14:46
For the price point, this is an amazing GPU that rivals the 2080 super but at lower cost. My cpu is a Ryzen 7 3700x and 650 watt EVGA psu. I cap my frames at 144 to match my monitor and on Call of Duty Cold War and Fortnite 1080p low graphics settings this gpu holds 144 fps all day easily. I also used an Asiahorse 12 pin extension cable instead of the adapter that came with it. Best Buy did an amazing job at fighting the scalpers and bots by requiring you to input a verification code not only once, but twice. Everywhere else sells out in seconds to bots and scalpers.Jan 05, 2021 11:47
This is the BEST price to performance card out there. At only $399 you get the power that a $699 (2080 Super) graphics card had. I have had absolutely no issues with my 3060ti. I have it paired with a Ryzen 5 3600X. I mainly use it to fly in Microsoft Flight Simulator, and I get around 30-50fps depending on the environment. I occasionally get a lag spike that drops me to 1-5fps, but driver updates and game updates will most likely solve those issues.
Best card out there if you can get your hands on it, would 100% recommend to anyone with a $1000-$1200 PC budget.Dec 20, 2020 18:08
Great card for the price to performance. Sad that it doesn't have the led for the rtx geforce, but everything else is great. I can game at great settings and still get good fps.Oct 23, 2021 15:32

I was lucky enough to finally get ahold of one of these bad boys!! Now, I really didnt need to upgrade coming from an EVGA 1080 hybrid, but I decided if I was able to get a 30 series I might as well considering the great reviews and how old my card already was. This new 3070 is absolutely FIRE! I have also upgraded my cpu, ram and motherboard as well so all of that together is obviously going to be way better no matter what. But the performance that this card delivers is outstanding. Even at $800 MSRP you really can't beat it. It does run a little hotter than my old liquid cooled 1080, but lets be honest. IT'S LIQUID COOLED.. I have been playing New World in 4k with all graphic settings on very high and the card runs between 60°-65°c. Clock speed is around 1850 Mhz. I have no intentions on overclocking the card because honestly, theres no need to. You could and you could have better performance from it, but theres no need to. The ONLY thing I'm not a huge fan of is the support bracket they sent for the front of the card. The card still sages a little on the right side. But I mean, it is a huge card. Very well built. If you have been thinking about it, you should just buy one if you can. 100% worth it and worth the price! GL out there bois!!Oct 20, 2021 09:52
The card literally boosts past TI performance levels. Dunno if I got a golden card but the card is insane. Never reaches past 65c on full load.Aug 08, 2021 15:20
Box was immaculate. Super fast to pickup and easy. Friendly staff! Probably the easiest pickup I have had and this I think is my 10th pickup. The card was wrapped in plastic still and no tears at all. Super happy.Aug 07, 2021 22:37
I'm so glad I was able to wait and finally grab a card. Thanks NVIDIA and MSI!!Aug 07, 2021 00:42
Yeaaa boy, I got the power of the gods now, also I can turn it into a jet engine, thank you!Aug 08, 2021 16:40
Prices continue to climb, so value will likely plummet for some users. Market factors aside, the 3070 is a solid card and this one is no exception. User has no complaints regarding function and performance.Oct 06, 2021 13:06
This GPU works great. My only issue is that it's pretty pricy.Oct 29, 2021 17:55

"Don't Give Up" I DID IT!!!! I beat the bots i know you can too! I've been hunting for one since launch since this card is a BEAST for price. I watched a lot of "fixitfixitfixit" YT alerts on my 2nd monitor all the time and watched the discord. DLSS is MAGIC in Cyberpunk 2077 i was getting before on my 1070ti i 40fps on LOW now everything is on ULTRA w/DLSS Quality hitting 100fps i'm in love. Good Luck to all who trying to get one. My watch has finally come to an end.May 02, 2021 01:43
Gets great performance in really any game @ 1440p. If you're looking to game @ 4k reliably I'd probably go with something beefier. But anyways, the reference design is great and my card has kept very cool (even in the cramped ITX case I've got it jammed in to). All I can say is I wish it had a bit more VRAM. Running multiple displays + a VR headset nearly maxes it out.
Also, don't give in to scalpers!!!! It allows them to keep doing what they do. Look up methods for tracking card drops & camp out on the BB app Tuesday mornings. Good luck.Jan 15, 2021 18:57
It took a lot of time out of my weekdays every other week for a month and a half but I DID IT.
This card is perfect for 1440p 144hz AND is at MSRP, which is a huge plus in these times with gpu shortages and such. The card is sleek and simple with the metal around the sides and built extremely rigid and is heavier than you'd think when you first pick it up.
Performance on this thing is a beast. For 1440p gaming this is the sweet spot for price to performance especially if you're pc budget is under $2000. The temps can get a little higher than I'd like to see, i sit around 68-70C, though i also have my case fans set to quiet most of the time with the 4000d airflow. I do sometimes spike up to 74C (it's been more common recently with the temperatures getting hotter and our AC not working currently), which is above what I find to be the thermal throttle line of ~70C, but just upping the fan curve by about 5% (and a little more on a hotter day) usually brings it back down to the 68-70C range. I have an overclock of +133mHz on the core which so far has been stable for over a month.
I have this paired with the 3700x (the 5000 series was difficult to come by when i bought it) and there is no bottlenecking at all. My frames are almost always 100+, except for places in ARK that have a lot of structures, but that game's also poorly optimized so that's too be expected. I play all games at epic/high settings which looks great and gives me plently of frames for it to be a very smooth experience.
Good luck to everyone who's trying to get a gpu, it's difficult but it's possible with some dedication and luck. I would recommend to anyone to join a notification server on discord, they're so helpful and the reason I got a card.May 30, 2021 16:56
Best valued 3070 video card you can buy. Card feels solid and heavy as it uses high quality plastic and metal. Founders stock cooler stays nice and cool. You either love or hate the look of the FE card.Nov 05, 2021 15:53
I cannot believe I was able to checkout when I had this in my cart! it is one awesome graphics card! If you ever see the yellow add to cart button, tap it!!!! then checkout as fast as you can!! being signed in already will help you out and get thru the sign in road blocks quicker! have your payment and shipping already saved in your account to be as efficient as you can!Jul 17, 2021 13:04
When I embarked on my first PC build this December, I had no idea the state of the PC market (Covid shortages, new tariffs, crypto demand, etc). Right now is arguably the worst time to build a PC. I consider myself to have been one of the fortunate to get a card at MSRP thanks to BestBuy - it was not impossible, and was persistence of checking the website multiple times a day.
This 3070 Founders Edition was initially not my first pick, but after having received it, it is now my favorite 3070 due to being simple and beautiful. In my opinion, the only comsetic downside to the card is the lack of any illumination. This card feels premium and is really rigid. Despite the fact my case only allows for one screw to be used on the PCI slot, this card does not have any sag and is very securely mounted.
Performance? Well, the benchmarks speak for themselves. Admittedly, I am still in the process of setting up my new PC and have not had much time with it, but I am excited to know that this GPU should withstand my needs for some time.Feb 09, 2021 22:51
Very late review but still a review none the less.
As hard as this was to get, it was completely worth it! This is my first "new" graphics card. First owning the 970, then 1070 both pre-owned. Card is a lot smaller compared to those two, but has better cooling and power! Great for my ITX build. The card surprisingly has some heft to it even if its a surprisingly small card
I use this with the Ryzen 3700x and no bottlenecks from what I've seen. In RDR 2 all high settings, I've been getting 60-90 FPS. Most game all on High to Ultra are completly playable, and this is played on a 1440p 165hz monitor.
I was fortunate to get this card, so if you are lucky enough to purchase one please do! Good luck have fun and don't give into scalpers!Mar 28, 2021 11:16
**THIS REVIEW IS NOT RATED BASED ON AVAILABILITY**
This GPU is fantastic. I built a desktop PC in anticipation for the new RTX 30 series cards. Specs: NZXT H210, i 10700K (overclocked), 32GB RAM, 2 x M.2 SSDs. Modern Warfare is at a constant limit of 144fps 1080p. Phasmaphobia is 240fps - 290fps 1080p. Heroes of the Storm is easily over 240fps 1080p. My system is completely air cooled with be quiet high speed pwm fans and Dark Rock slim pro. I recommend downloading EVGA Precision X1 and adjusting fan curves for case fans. If I don't adjust case fans my GPU stays around 70 - 73 Celsius. Adjusting my case fans when running at 60% speed my GPU will RARELY hit 62 Celcius in a room around 75 degrees. If you have a 1080p monitor you'll be extremely happy and run everything at max detail and max fps for your monitor unless you have the crazy 240hz or 360hz. Haven't used it for 1440p yet. This is a great buy, unless you have a 2080 ti you will go home completely happy and pleased with this item. This works well with ITX cases as long as you adjust case fan curve.Nov 11, 2020 13:48
Improve your computer visuals with this Asus TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER graphics card. The NVIDIA Turing architecture coupled with a blazing-fast GDDR6 memory smoothly handles demanding games, while the DirectCU II copper heat-pipes provide better cooling during long sessions in battlefields. This Asus TUF Gaming GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER graphics card features the GeForce Experience for capturing, live-streaming and sharing content with anyone.
Great GPU. Good price. I know that this GPU is for 1080p but I used it for 4k and it does the work.Aug 27, 2020 23:51
Good budget GPU that doesn't break the bank. I needed to upgrade my GTX 1060 3gb, but didn't want to pay too much for a higher end card. This gets me over 100 fps on low settings on Warzone and around 75 on medium settings.Nov 17, 2020 17:32
I admittedly bought this card out of desperation due to the current availability issues of the video card market. I needed it for a secondary computer. I mostly use it for 4k youtube and some mid 2010 games. But I've been surprised at just how well this little card does. Absolutely no regrets! Score wise it's not all that far behind a 1080 oc card I have in another rig. Think that speaks quite well of this card!Mar 05, 2021 17:55
Quality GC for the price. Solid build and works well with my I5Nov 04, 2021 10:19
Not a bad card at all, probably not the best for warzone as that game is poorly optimized, but I can get about 80-90 fps at 1080p. I would get it though to hold you over the GPU shortage.Jun 23, 2021 13:16
Great price for performance. 32+ Mh/s and cool memory temps.Oct 31, 2021 11:11
Thank I’ve been needing this for my custom built pc. Best Buy is the only place where real people can actually buy stuff without bots having to ruin everything. I sincerely applaud Best BuyAug 04, 2021 22:56
Card is really good and worked as expected. Good build quality. The only thing that bugs me is that it has a plastic back plate. I think that a metal back plate is a must. However the card really doesn't get that hot.Apr 19, 2021 16:14

This card is honestly the best bang for your buck especially for the price point! Review starts under this paragraph but I know these are hard to come by but patience is key with these items so please do wait until there’s more or consistent stock to pay at MSRP other than paying scalpers.
At this price point, the performance is so phenomenal that it’s hard to fathom how much value I got out of this card. I’m switching from a 2070 Super Founder’s Edition to this 3070 TI Founders Edition and the performance is noticeable. While the 2070S is a great card and ran everything, the 3070 TI runs every game smoother than a hot knife cutting through butter. I’m running pretty much every game at max settings at 1440P without dropping under 100 fps; COD Black Ops Cold War is one of these. My temperatures for the card are pretty good too, I haven’t seen the card go past 75 degrees Celsius under load.
I also use this for editing and rending videos and it works just as well.
The design of this card is aesthetically pleasing with the two tone color scheme. This card took a similar design of the 3080 (most noticeably with the fan placement) while mixing it with the 3070’s design. The GeForce RTX logos do not light up like the 3080’s and above models, so FYI for those who are into RGB lighting. The only downside I can find about this card is that it uses a 12 pin gpu connector which you’ll need to use the adaptor that it comes with that may make your case look a little messier but you can always purchase an off brand 12 pin gpu connector to clean it up a bit. However, those last two points I just mentioned didn’t affect my score of this card’s review.
I luckily went to an in person event and only waited 10 hours to get handed a ticket the day before so I didn’t have to camp overnight. I just got there at 4 AM day before. If you have that opportunity, I’d say that’ll be the second best way to obtain these cards other than an online drop which can be a little more difficult. As with anything, just be careful when going this route and I recommend either befriending someone in line or bringing a friend with you to pass the time & hold your spot when you need to step out for a bit.
Overall, this card is amazing for the price and if you can get your hands on it in the future, you’ll definitely get your money’s worth. Just please be patient as these are slowly coming in more in stock at Best Buy.Oct 21, 2021 17:41
The Performance and Aesthetics of this GPU are the Tops!!!
I recommend this FE Model above almost all else!!!
If your looking for the best OVERCLOCKING then the next best tier level would be Evga or MSI.
But if your not the type of person who has to push their gpu to the ultimate power levels than this card is all you need for *1440p* (120 - 200 FPS) Smooth Gaming!!!Oct 02, 2021 03:05
I play at 60fps on my 1920x1080 TV and I'm a fairly horrible gamer so I don't have any major settings on just the default and it works just fine and only gets to 40% usage so I'm sure at max rendering settings it would do just fine at 60 fps but probably not at 120.
It has not over temped or gotten close during my normal 3 hour bursts of gaming and I'm just happy to have a graphics card!
I waited in line for almost 24 hours for a 3080 I got to settle for this guy and while I've heard it's not much better than a 3070 it was my only choice and it's working nicely for me and what I do. The power cable in the middle is a little weird but it works.Oct 14, 2021 09:37
I got mine from the recent drop on the 1st. I waited 16 hours. I upgraded to this from a 1660 Super and the difference it's clear. I could manage 1440p with the 1660 super I had and got a decent amount of frames. It would hit 60 fps every now and then but would dip as low as the 40s.
With this card. I can have 1440p with RTX on and settings set to high and still get over 100 frames. 50-70 fps if I set the rendering quality to near max. depending on the game. I can play max settings.
I originally wanted a 3080 for that extra ceiling of performance but there were only 6 at the store I went to and 11 regular 3070s. So the 3070ti was the next best thingOct 05, 2021 11:38
Pro: This graphic card is nice compared to my 2080 Super that was having some odd issues. Unlike my old EVGA card which never idle the fans down like it should. This one will idle the fans while you do non intense work. Excellent value considering is hard to find any decent graphic cards these days.
Cons: none but "I wish it came with 12GB instead of 8GB."

Absolutely amazing, I’m going from a 2070 Super to the 3070 TI which isn’t the largest jump, but still a great upgrade! For $100 more I’m not sure a 4% jump in performance from a 3070 is worth it, however this was what was left available from the 1 day event they were having, so I walked out with a card I wanted no matter what. If you can manage to get your hand on any card I’d say it is well worth any money spent on it. One thing to remember when getting any card like this is it uses a 12 pin! The adapter for an 8pin is under the card in the packaging usually. Don’t stress about it being different than the plugs you have.Aug 27, 2021 13:26
Finally got the chance to build my own PC, I wanted to buy 3060ti but I didn’t camp outside the bestbuy, and when I arrived I am within the last 10% of the queue. No ticket for 3060ti then I chose 3070ti. It works perfect and I love the ray chasing effect in the games. Very satisfied to have this one.Oct 21, 2021 14:59
A really good product especially for MSRP. Value is better on 3080, but this is beefy enough. Bought it for HDMI 2.1 support - rocking my QLED TV 4K 120 Hz.Nov 07, 2021 12:21
The TUF GAMING GeForce RTX 3070 has been stripped down and built back up to provide more robust power and cooling. A new all-metal shroud houses three powerful axial-tech fans that utilize durable dual ball fan bearings.
Asus TUF is one of the better designed cards in my opinion, sure other brands have high quality flagships but TUF is not a flagship card yet great quality. Excellent temperatures, stable and quiet. Priced reasonably as well.Nov 05, 2021 18:39
First I am so happy that I finally got a graphics card. Second it performs way better than I anticipated. There is a lot of overclock headroom, but no need because it is so fast.Nov 10, 2021 08:42
Great product, great performance and build qualityOct 09, 2021 16:31
It's a 3070. Asus is a good brand and the card didn't have any issues. You won't go wrong with asus or EVGA.Oct 04, 2021 13:02
Great quality card. Solid performance. Not the best price, but it is what it isOct 19, 2021 19:53
Bought for a friend for his first PC. So far it’s good.Nov 01, 2021 11:13
It took me a bit of time to fit this card on my micro ATX case. and if you want to know this card is an LHR model.Oct 06, 2021 16:33
The EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 is colossally powerful in every way imaginable, giving you a whole new tier of performance at 8K resolution. It's powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, which doubles down on ray tracing and AI performance with enhanced RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and new streaming multiprocessors. Combined with the next generation of design, cooling, and overclocking with EVGA Precision X1, the EVGA GeForce RTX 3090 Series redefines the definition of ultimate performance.
Fantastic performance for a dual 8 pin design. More headroom available if you’re willing to void the warranty, but out of the box I’m hitting 70-110 frames on a 5120x1440 resolution with maxed out setting on Black Ops, 300 frames on Squadrons, and 115 average on Death Stranding.
It does generate some heat though.Dec 28, 2020 07:13
Amazing card, 10 months in. Installed an EVGA Hybrid cooler on it which really woke it up with the much cooler temperatures. It makes ray tracing games viable, smooth and worth while. It pushes high resolution Vive Pro 2 headsets flawlessly. It can Crypto mine on the side to make up for some of the costs while being a beast of a gaming and production card. In other words it can do anything you want and need for 99.9% of the population out there -> Best gaming -> Best production and professional level for a consumer card -> Best Crypto mining. Is it worth the price? Well if you want the best in gaming -> yep. Best in professional application without buying a much higher cost professional card -> yep. Crypto mine -> YepOct 27, 2021 14:01
One of the more compact 3090's, making it perfect for small form factor PC's. It also comes with EVGA's superb customer service.
Doesn't have RGB, just does it job.
I do recommend making the fan curve a bit more aggressive though, I like keeping temps at low 70's and the default curve values silence over temps.Nov 22, 2021 11:33
what can i tell you about a 3090 that you don't already know? it's powerful, like really powerful, it runs most of my games at 4k 144hz without even have to give it 100%.. Nvidia simply made their homework, couldn't be more happyNov 08, 2021 11:40
3090 chip is a pretty powerful chip. It has 12 GB VRAM on one side and another set of 12 GB VRAM modules on the backside. So It gets really hot even during regular gaming sessions.
EVGA hasn't designed the cooler on XC3 to handle the heat from stock card let alone any overclocking venture.
I had to replace the thermal pads on back side (remove backplate and replace the stock thermal pads. This dropped the temps by 5-6C. I used gelid extremes. Put a 90/120mm fan on top of backplate if the temps are still high for you. Airflow is really important to cool this card as the heatsink isn't large enough like the FTW3 version and even the Nvidia FE model.
The best way to utilize this card would be to undervolt and overclock it (if at all).Nov 05, 2021 15:32
It's been over a year now and I am 95% happy with my purchase. Honestly, could it be a 3 pin 3090 so that we can have better OC?. Yes, yes it could. BUT at the time, this was all I could get my hands on. However, under all of the circumstances, this card has been able to handle EVERYTHING I have thrown at it. So there is no reason for me to complain. With a little tinkering with undervolting and spending time to build a custom frequency curve, I was able to maximize my card and hit 14.5k in port royal and almost 20.7k in Timespy extreme.Sep 09, 2021 10:46
Holding up well so far, almost been two months. Thermals are OK, they get to maybe 65C running at full intensity with a somewhat aggressive fan curve, mounted vertically and placed in a large full-tower ATX case. Great for deep learning on Linux, although when training models it does make some questionable faint buzzing/noise (originally was more of a click every training epoch but I then plugged my PC into a different outlet in a different wall and no more clicks, just some subtle whiny noises — could just be that I had a lot of peripherals plugged into that one outlet including a power strip). Happy about the size as well — on the smaller side for a 3090 so this could be a plus for you if you have a smaller case...check dimensions first though. Has some very occasional hitches — e.g. game crashes/lag and I’ve spotted some questionable graphics artifacts on the screen while training models once — but overall has been doing its job well. Hope it stays that way for many more years.Feb 23, 2021 02:27
Holy grail item in 2021, it is an amazing graphics card with insane resale value if I ever decide I don't need to have it anymore. Getting items like this during the product drops at near msrp is about the best we can hope for now.Nov 05, 2021 15:53
Get the ultimate gaming performance with GIGABYTE RTX 3070 Graphics Cards. Powered by NVIDIA's 2nd gen RTX architecture and refined with WINDFORCE cooling technology, the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3070 GAMING OC 8G brings stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications with its enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores.
The RTX 3070 is a beast of a card for the price! Any triple AAA title, 1440p, maxed out settings, with ray tracing is an absolute treat to the eye. I managed to get lucky and buy one. Highly recommend RTX 3rd gen to anyone looking to build a pc, and hold off till stock comes back! You will get one!Dec 06, 2020 09:01
I'm getting between 100 - 144 fps (144hz is my monitor's limit) in Witcher 3, Modern Warfare, GTA V, Shadow of The Tomb Raider, basically every game I've thrown at it with ultra settings at 1440p. With a GSync display it's just the perfect sweet spot gaming experience. Can't wait to play Cold War and Cyberpunk 2077 with Ray Tracing and DLSS 2.0!
The card itself is beautiful with sharp angles and subtle rgb lighting. Runs without issues with my 600W 80+ white power supply and a Ryzen 3600.
Thanks to Best Buy and their antibot measures I was able to order this bad boy on launch. Without you caring a bit for real gamers I wouldn't have had a chanceNov 12, 2020 12:12
This 3070 runs cool and very quiet, even under max load. The overall design is solid. Actual circuit board is much shorter than the heatsink, but it has a very large flow-through design. Power connections are loose feeling and somewhat difficult to connect properly. Just be patient and don't force it. Overall a decent product, although the recent price hike moves this down in value versus the other brands.Mar 21, 2021 21:27
This thing is a beast!!! Quiet when needed and clocks in at 1965 core speed performing under 60c degree. Lucky to get my hands on this love the RGB, plus it looks simple and its already OC... all I can say is buy buy buy... go bestbuy!Jan 15, 2021 16:02
My experience with this card moving from a 1060 6gb to 3070 have been nothing short of awesome. This card has perfectly run every game I have at 1440p 165hz with only my cpu now holding me back.
For MSRP, this card is guaranteed to amaze. Just make sure your cpu and power supply have enough juice to support this card before you buy it.Jun 17, 2021 02:40
I was really shooting for a 3080 but landed this card after many failed attempts at trying to get a 3080. Really getting a 3070 wasn’t too much easier lol. Any hesitations while the product was in your cart and it was gone.
Not much to say other than it’s a well made card. It’s a substantial boost over the GTX1080 it replaced. It’s pushing my Omen 27i 2k monitor and full settings to near max refresh rate of 166hz in COD. It pushes Overwatch big time. . I do suspect I’m a bit cpu limited with the i5 6600k but I see no reason to get a 3080 unless I was pushing 4K and higher FPS.
Kudos to Bestbuy for getting the card to me on a Sunday two days before expected day.Nov 23, 2020 03:40
Great product at only 150 bucks over MSRP. Serious upgrade from my good old GTX 770. Able to handle any game i throw at it. Nice to not have to check if my system will handle a game any longer.May 07, 2021 16:44
Great performance and temps, very happy with my purchase. Solid card.May 14, 2021 21:54
Get the ultimate gaming performance with GIGABYTE RTX 3060 Graphics Cards. Powered by NVIDIA's 2nd gen RTX architecture and refined with WINDFORCE cooling technology, the AORUS GeForce RTX 3060 ELITE 12G (rev. 2.0) brings stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications with its enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores.
this card actually performed better than expected. It stayed nice and cool. Great value for $519, unless you can find a 3060ti for a good price. If you have a smaller case, make sure you check the dimensions because it's a big card. Mine needed an 8 pin & 6 pin power connectionsOct 30, 2021 20:14
Cooled designed card. Ordered this at BB walking into the store. Was extremely easy to get. I'm not sure why people are complaining that these are not available in stores when I ordered one at the counter.Nov 06, 2021 01:00
Great value card. Love the design and RGB. Was able to order this in store at the register. No hassle whatever in getting a gpu.Nov 06, 2021 01:07
Very nice looking GPU. The triple fan cooling keeps the temps low which means a lot of room for overclocking :)Nov 05, 2021 15:31
Love this card for its design and sleek RGB. Gigabricks usually have bad reputation but I lked this card.Nov 06, 2021 01:16
The graphic card was fantastic for its price. It was just what I wanted!Nov 12, 2021 18:38
Very happy with this purchase, item works as described and looks greatNov 07, 2021 17:07
it’s amazing and i love how it works with my computerNov 12, 2021 21:00
The GeForce RTX 3080 delivers the ultra performance that gamers crave, powered by Ampere—NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture. It’s built with enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores, new streaming multiprocessors, and superfast G6X memory for an amazing gaming experience.
My brother and I built our computers in August before the stock shortages happened so we were lucky. He got a 2080 Super and I got a 2060 Super. The 30 Series GPU's release dates were announced and I wanted to get an FE. Come release date, I didn't get a 3080 like everyone else. So I downgraded my 2060 to a 1660 Super in hopes of eventually getting a 30 Series and then I'd give the 1660 Super to my mom's build I was working on. Cut 6 frustrating months later and CONSTANT checking each day, I finally got a 3080 FE on Best Buy with NO issues during checkout. Yeah, I know, I was surprised to. So far I have no issues with the 3080 and I think it's amazing. I love the design of the FE compared to the other AiBs. I'm running 1440p with a Ryzen 9 3900X along with this and VR is amazing. The 1660 Super I was using previously would give some lag here and there but now it's so smooth with the 3080.
It sucks that this year has been the worst in terms of out of stock supply/scalpers/miners/etc. but I'd still hold off and keep trying to get one at msrp or close to it (unless you're rich and don't care about price but that's not me).Apr 07, 2021 14:54
Reading reviews because the button is grey.. I get it, I've been there!! Till that one magical day when that button turned yellow. At that moment my smart watch said I was going in to afib!!
The process to get through checkout was a bigger adrenaline rush than running away from an oozing Volcano. WOW!
Oh yea, the card..
It's amazing.Jan 31, 2021 17:49
I managed to snag this bad boy back in October of 2020. I fought tooth and nail against the scalpers like many others and was able to get to that buy now button. This card has performed admirably and I have zero complaints. I wanted to wait a year and use it to be sure it was solid. The temps have are very good. It has blown away all my expectations and some. Definitely worth getting if you can get it at MSRP. FE is a must have. Tough build and good quality. Good luck to all! Hopefully they become more readily available.Oct 28, 2021 13:02
There isn't much to say other than this is a fantastic card. For those who have the chance to purchase one don't think just buy it. I will say my VRAM ran a little hot (103C was the max I recorded) but I was able to fix this with a thermal pad replacement and my temps dropped around 20 degrees.
NOTE: Do not do a thermal pad replacement unless you know what you are doing as you could break your card.Oct 16, 2021 00:04
If you are somehow one of the fortunate few to grab this card, then wow, this is it in terms of price to performance. Coming from a 5600xt, the 3080 handles most max graphic settings that you throw at it. As someone who plays on a high refresh rate 1440p monitor, the card is near perfect for that setup. At that resolution, you can enjoy the high fps and great looking graphics. The ability to also handle 4K is a nice option if I ever decide to upgrade monitors.
As far as aesthetics go, I absolutely love the look of the founders cards MINUS the ridiculous looking 12 to dual 8 pin cable. Luckily there are after market cable extensions that help solve this issue. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that the card actually has some rgb at the middle of the card in addition to the led lit geforce logo. When it comes to temps, I actually found, through various websites, that undervolting the card allows you to achieve near the same performance while pulling way fewer watts.
All in all, while the gpu market is completely abysmal at this point, if you can snag this card at the original msrp of $700, then you have a winner.Mar 14, 2021 15:06
This thing is a beast. Has a small wind when under load but runs great at 1440. Fps is amazing as well. Only downside was waiting for this in line for 20 hrs just to get it. But worth it in the long run.Aug 27, 2021 21:55
It looks like i seem to have received a silicone lottery winnner. It clocks up very well and runs really efficient. It is surprisingly compact to bootSep 24, 2021 16:12
Was finally able to get a 3080 it only took camping overnight for the card but was worth it. The card handles everything I throw at it with no issues whatsoever.Sep 17, 2021 15:56
Get the ultimate gaming performance with GIGABYTE RTX 3090 VISION OC Graphics Cards. Powered by NVIDIA's 2nd gen RTX architecture and refined with GIGABYTE's WINDFORCE cooling technology, the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3090 VISION OC 24G brings stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications with its enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores, and a staggering 24 GB of G6X memory.
Looks great on my white build. It has a minimalistic look. I’m enjoying all my games on ultra settings. Price is kinda steep though., but overall very happy with it.Sep 03, 2021 15:36
I finally was able to get a 3090 and it was defective. crashed my system as soon as I would get into a game. Tragic to actually get one of these cards and it not work. I returned it no questions asked by Best Buy so they get 5 stars for customer service.Oct 08, 2021 20:37
If you're looking for an RTX 3090, this one is extremely powerful like the others, but if you have a white build, you need to pick this one.Oct 26, 2021 15:15
Oh man! whats not to love about this beauty? Other then the price and OOS!
I was a little disappointed this 3090 only has two 8 pin power pins. Should be plenty but 3 would have been nice.
I use it to game at 4k on a 10900kApr 24, 2021 09:02
You already know. Does it even need a review? Nahh.Oct 22, 2021 18:16
Amazing! Pricey! This card should last the next 5-10 years. Would definitely recommend this card if you can get it. Plug and playMar 05, 2021 16:47
I am sooo Excited for this!!! Glad that i am able to get my hands on this! It has not disappointed me.Aug 06, 2021 21:48
Nice white graphics card. Great for gaming and for streaming. Must buy if you want the best.Feb 19, 2021 15:44

This card is fast, as close to a 3070 as you can get. It looks understated, though don’t be fooled. It’s a beast under the hood for 1080p or 1440p gaming, and can play the latest pc games without breaking a sweat! These are in high demand, get yours today!Sep 23, 2021 00:56

Great performance card. The fans could be slightly better(feel slightly flimsy compared to the FE card). But performance and thermals are amazing and if you have a case that can fit the card it is still a decent buy in the shortage.Nov 02, 2021 23:26
Use this card for mining ETH and while it is hash rate limited I got lucky with getting Samsung memory and with the new unlocks it’s getting close to 45 MH/s so not bad. Solid build and no cooling issues.Nov 05, 2021 15:45
You cannot beat the price to performance ratio of a 3060 graphics card! This RTX 3060 TI is a beast! It plays almost every game at high settings. It's crazy the performance these things make, plus the design is awesome looking!Oct 30, 2021 11:04
Awesome looking GPU. Been trying to get my hands on a 30 series graphics card for months and finally got one through bestbuy. This GPU is BIG and I actually had to upgrade my case for my build since it wouldn’t fit in my old case. Gigabyte always makes great and attractive productsSep 25, 2021 14:21
decent price and a solid product! 37 MH/s on ethereum currently, got to check out some of the newer unlock software as people are getting close to 45 MH/sNov 06, 2021 07:46
Pretty beast 3060 ti, oc can be close to 3070(ref speeds). About 5-10 percent slower than 3070 when ya ng high power limit oc. Runs cool and quiet. Pretty beastly 3060tiOct 22, 2021 23:49

Great card. Super lucky to get my hands on one. Good luckAug 13, 2021 21:48
If you can get your hands on this definitely worth the buy.Jun 02, 2021 15:56
Great card! Runs cool, absolutely destroys 1440p gaming and plenty of VRAM for future proofing!May 27, 2021 16:24
Coming from a 1660 Super, this card completely runs all my games at Max settings and kills 1080p gaming. Got it with BB's in-store drop and offers awesome price to performance for EVGA GPUs.Oct 08, 2021 17:58
Finally was able to place my order two weeks ago after many attempts to get my hands on any rtx card. I built a new computer in January and was reusing sli gtx 960 4gb cards until I was able to get this one. After playing many new AAA titles at medium/ low settings so my old 960’s could handle it I became frustrating that getting an rtx card was so difficult. Luckily I finally got my EVGA rtx 3060 xc and I couldn’t be happier. I thought I would want more like a 3060ti or 3070. But to be honest this card runs ultra settings with ray tracing and dlss on call of duty Cold War with my lg 1440p 144hz at 60-100 FPS. That’s amazing to me and I am impressed wirh the performance.Apr 13, 2021 10:28
Managed to snag this card on a April 28th best buy drop. Very impressed with the performance. Runs COD Cold War on 115+ fps with high to ultra settings. Initially wanted a 3060 ti, but I cannot complain with this beast of a tiny machine. The cooling on this gpu is also stellar, never reached above 60C under full load. If you are looking to overclock this card, it will not disappoint. So happy I got the opportunity to purchase this card, as it is the cheapest 3060 on Best Buy. Overall, cannot complain with the performance of any of the 3000 series gpus.May 23, 2021 05:30
I was able to get this 3060 and you can too. Its a great card and will handle anything you throw at it. First, I downloaded an app on my phone called hotstock, and set the alert to 3060ti fe , even though i didnt want a 3060ti. Its what comes in stock most often. Then, i put all my payment info into the best buy mobile app, and then on drop day I got the notification, went to best buy, and added it to cart.
THIS IS THE IMPORTANT PART
ONCE YOU GET ADD TO CART, AND THE BUTTON TURNS GREY WHEN YOU CLICK, **DO NOT REFRESH THE PAGE**. THE BUTTON WILL SAY ADD TO CART AGAIN SOON.
Once it says add to cart again, go through checkout as fast as possible, dont even look at shipping, if you have to drive 10 miles do it. Once you are at payment, you are safe, you did it. Congrats, have fun with the card.Jun 24, 2021 12:09
The TUF GAMING GeForce RTX 3070 has been stripped down and built back up to provide more robust power and cooling. A new all-metal shroud houses three powerful axial-tech fans that utilize durable dual ball fan bearings.
Excellent GPU. It is also quite large, make sure to check your case dimensions. I recommend atleast a 750w power supply. Yes, it's expensive and hard to get. Paired with a powerful CPU, this thing will get about 80 frames on 1440p highest settings in a game like Red Dead Redemption 2. Obviously individual games, etc will vary. It can do 4k gaming as well, but don't expect the same performance as a 3080 or 3090.May 17, 2021 14:26
Besides regular use, I personally use it for Iracing. Runs 3 1080p screens at 140fps capped no problem. After a 45 minute race of 28 cars with ultra graphics plus custom settings for more detail (which weren't included in ultra for some reason), temps barely peaked 60 degrees with fans at 52%Dec 19, 2020 22:55
I bought the card right before the prices rocketed which cost me $560 [$617 W/ Taxes]. I was able to to pick it up from a nearby store just 2 days after I was able to secure an order. It has been phenomenal in terms of performance and cooling capability. The card is able to maintain nice stable conditions under load and has so far given me zero problems.Jan 29, 2021 16:06
This card is absolutely amazing. Thermals are great, fans are whisper quiet, and performance is excellent. My only complaint is that I spent way more than the original MSRP.Apr 13, 2021 23:50
This behemoth of a card is awesome. Definitely check to make sure this will fit in your case. I'm not a GPU expert, but it seems like this thing can handle whatever is thrown at it. DLSS, ray tracing - seems to have all the fixin's. Runs cool and quiet. Never had any issues. This card is so big that it does have a slight lean going on sitting inside the case, but doesn't seem to affect performance.
This card is on the expensive side since everything has increased in price at the time of this writing, but the quality of the product is unmatched compared to other GPUs. You get what you pay for here and you will not be disappointed.Sep 03, 2021 17:42
Best all around 3070 GPU, IMHO. Performs great and has the best cooling. Dragon Center sucks!!!Apr 16, 2021 22:13

This card is huge and you may need to plan around the size. The card is quiet and I have not had any coil noise as others have mentioned. Obviously it slays 1440P at max settings on just about every game.
I am not sure the price increase above the FE would be worth it in normal times, but given the current circumstances the value is there even at 649.99.Feb 15, 2021 15:40
The GeForce RTX™ 3080 Ti delivers the ultra performance that gamers crave, powered by Ampere—NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture. It’s built with enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores, new streaming multiprocessors, and superfast G6X memory for an amazing gaming experience.
This card has sooo much overclocking potential! I put the ekwb founders special edition waterblock on it and was able to go +190 on the core and +1500 on memory completely stable. My card clocks around 2130 in games and 2175 in synthetic benchmarks. Its faster than many 3090's that I have seen!! The true potential of this card can not be unlocked until you put a waterblock on it. The stock founders cooler is not good enough to allow this card to really stretch its legs. If your into overclocking and dont mind putting on a waterblock, this card will not disappoint! I love mine!!Jun 28, 2021 16:24
Can’t believe I was one of the lucky few to get this card on launch day and I gotta say it was definitely worth it. If you have chance to buy it at MSRP, definitely jump on that as soon as you can or else someone else will. Was finally able to finish my first ever PC build with it and coming from console -it’s such a huge leap that I’m a changed man haha.
This card is an absolute BEAST and can handle pretty much everything you throw at it. Being able to crank max settings on most games and remain relatively quiet is really nice. Unless you crank up the fan speed past 75% you won’t notice any noise. Having basically the power of a 3090 but at a much more affordable price is a no brainer and definitely looking forward to overclocking once I get the hang of things.Oct 18, 2021 23:54
Amazing card. 3090 performance without the size or thermal issues of the 3090. It does still run hot though, expect temps around 80-83 even in the best cases for airflow (this is normal though). Absolutely loved how Best Buy handled the release by making it in-person.Jul 08, 2021 18:40
Can not say enough. 3090 just with half ram. not the hot side ram really. but runs Alienware coldwar 1080p 240 steady. installed in a great H500m case. it runs 70c Gaming. paired with 5900x. 70c 1-1440P -165hz dell 32dgf monitor 1440p ASUS 1440P AND NEW TOY FOT THE 3080TI IS ME GOIMG BACK TO 1080P BECAUSE i been killin it in coldwar since the hz240.broke a record on 3dAug 30, 2021 13:47
Big but very quiet. That's what I needed to do when I tell it to do it. It's gorgeous too. You do get a lot of performance out of this card but the price just doesn't seem right for what it is. This card should be $1,000 to be honest compared to a regular 3080. But if you have the cash to spend and if you're not going to be doing any etherium mining you can think of it as buying a cheap 3090.Aug 13, 2021 16:00
Hideously overpriced (by about $300 realistically) but an excellent GPU and with moderate undervolting does well with the stock cooler even in a cramped case like the FormD T1. This is definitely the upper end of realistic for a two-slot GPU though.
The classic Ti reflective silver texture on the IO plate and metal accents is great to see, as is the fixed font for the "3080" text.
If you have the chance to get this at MSRP vs. a 3080 for twice the MSRP I'd say go for it. And if you have to use it for mining you can mine ETH up to half efficiency and an alt coin with the rest of the GPU's compute time - even at the same time.
Display name's my Reddit handle.Aug 13, 2021 21:52

Overall I really love the design of the Founders Edition and the performance you get is incredible. Honestly besides the price being hiked up at the last moment by Nvidia THERES not much to complain about it. But this is card is for those looking for a high end graphics card and if you get the chance at grabbing it for MSRP…. Do it. Your wallet will regret it, but at least you won’t.Jun 30, 2021 19:02
Coming from a custom cooled (NZXT Kraken G12 & Thermaltake Water 3.0 Riing RGB 240 AIO) RTX 2080, and using an ultrawide monitor, I can only say that my expectations are beyond what I had imagined!
As one other reviewer said, this is an OC beast, and smashes through framerates at ultra settings like an oncoming train!
Heat has not been an issue, though I wish there were some aftermarket brackets (NZXT?) for hooking up an AIO.Jun 29, 2021 19:59
Experience next-generation gaming packed with stunning visuals with this EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card. The 6GB 192-bit of GDDR6 memory keep up with the high-bandwidth requirement of the latest demanding titles, while NVIDIA Turing architecture ensures enhanced realism. This EVGA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card features an all-metal backplate that keeps it protected by absorbing heat.
Best bang for your dollar! I purchased this gpu for my first pc build and absolutely love it. I play mostly AAA games, some indie and even VR. I think you'll enjoy this card too. I will note, I don't run 4k for gaming though.. I don't have a 4k monitor.Apr 15, 2021 14:54
For 300 it's been working pretty darn good. If you can get your hands on a 3000 series card then Def spring for it as the FPS is a hugeee difference. But you can step up through EVGA just don't expect it to be for the next six plus months. I did a much more in depth review but best buy decided to not approve it. Sweet.Feb 08, 2021 23:28
Solid performer. Upgraded from an EVGA GTX 970, and the card runs cooler and faster than my 970 by a strong margin. Utilizing EVGA’s program to upgrade to a 3060ti or 3070 within the next couple of months. Definitely something to look into since zero new cards are available.Jan 17, 2021 20:20
This is a great graphics card for 1080p gaming at 60 hz but no moreDec 11, 2020 19:41
Given the current market for gpus as of 2/5/2021....I was happy to get this for under 300 lolFeb 05, 2021 17:56
Best 1080p card for your money. Has some ray tracing support in certain games. In shadow of the tomb raider used ray tracing no problem but in the new call of duty games they crash so keep that in mind. This card comes overclocked but there is still room to push it a little further. Great card for the price if you're looking to stay at 1080p for a while.Nov 28, 2020 02:48
Excellent graphics for an entry-level gaming pc, it looks and looks pretty quality.
In esport games it performs quite well, more than 200FPS (CSGO, Fortnite, Valorant). But in AAA games it only gives 60FPS in ultra graphics, it is still very good graphics.Jan 11, 2021 05:15
This card is a literal BEAST when it comes to 1080p gaming on high-ultra settings! I bought this card to use in the pc I built for my sister and she LOVES it. I ended up painting the gpu shroud and vinyl wrapping the backplate to match the build and I think it turned out nice. It packs a lot of punch for such a small size! This played Assassins' Creed Valhalla on ultra settings with around 60fps on a 1920x1080p monitor. She absolutely loves it. This card will play any triple A title easily on high settings. I even tested it out on The Forest on my 1440p monitor and on ultra settings it was getting 70+fps. I paired this with a Ryzen 5 2600 in the darkflash DLM21 mATX case and the temps are glorious. At full load the card is around 60 and the cpu is sitting pretty at around 45-50. If you are looking for a good mid/high-tier gpu for a great price, this is the one.Dec 07, 2020 10:32
Play to your full potential with this GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1650 OC graphics card. The WINDFORCE 2X cooling system offers high airflow to keep components at optimal temperatures, while the NVIDIA Turing architecture provides realistic visuals for complete immersion. This GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1650 OC graphics card has 4GB of GDDR5 RAM and 896 CUDA processing cores for fast, responsive performance.
I used to have a one fan GTX 750, worked well for the years I had it. I spoke to a buddy of mine since I needed a stronger card to use a Vr headset. He recommended a 1650 and well I love it.
It’s not loud in the slightest, maybe with the exception of it pushing wind flow hard but that only lasts about 10 seconds at most. I’m finally able to play AC: Syndicate at a much higher quality, along with my computer not heating up as fast.Sep 25, 2020 20:58
Works really well for what I intended. Light to medium gaming, but I believe it can be worked a little harder if need be.Dec 04, 2020 22:57
Got this graphics card because the high power ones were unavailable or too expensive when i was building my new computer.Oct 23, 2021 17:36
Good budget card for 300W prebuilt systems, but if you need better performance get something higherOct 19, 2020 00:46
Bought it for my friend and he loves it! Got dam 10 more characters till I can post this lolz!Nov 07, 2020 00:09
Great value for cheap gaming rig. works great for upgrading low end PCs to make them capable of gaming. plasy most games on High, Med for AAA gamesJan 14, 2021 02:19
Great graphics my downloads are a little faster, I'm watching everything in just about 4k, and I love the monthly updates, I'm a gamer mom, I play the sims4 and GTA5, as well as a few online games, the graphics are so realistic and very detailed.Dec 04, 2020 16:52
Good value and card works well for 1080p gaming. I mostly play world of warcraftFeb 20, 2021 09:38
Run demanding games at high frame rates and in incredible detail with this MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card. Games, streaming and other graphical programs run fluidly thanks to the 1,536 CUDA cores, and three DisplayPort outputs make multi-monitor setup simple. This MSI GeForce GTX 1660 Ti graphics card has 6GB of memory for handling intense workloads.
I needed something a bit more powerful than the stock Graphics card that came with my new RGB PC. I compared my card to many others and thought this was a good price point with a little bit of extra RGB bling to my system. Very happy with the purchase, and the card does not even break a sweat with FFXIV or WOW.Sep 26, 2020 13:07
My grandson needed this to build his gaming computer. He is ver happy with it.Oct 02, 2020 16:07
It was decent while I had it. Returned for a 3080. It had great LEDs and the cooler is very good. Software for MSI is good too. Runs any game high settings 1080p.Jun 06, 2021 01:42
It’s a good 1660 ti card. I do like the MSI afterburner software. It makes it very easy to tweak settings.Mar 06, 2021 10:46
This card is the perfect size for my computer when there’s not a hole lotta space, in Dell’s XPS 8930Oct 11, 2019 17:03
I am SO happy with this graphics card so far! I just built my own PC for the first time.
Ryzen 5 1600 (1st gen) @ 3.2ghz (overclocks COMFORTABLE to 3.9ghz)
16GB of 3200mhz DDR4 Ram
and of course, this GTX 1660 Ti graphics card.
So far I have tested a few games, and I'll show you the details/results below:
Forza Horizon 4 - Ultra Settings (all)
Averaging 120fps - plays fantastic. It would dip down to 89FPS in certain situations where it is very nature heavy, but not for very long, and it still looked fantastic.
Gears of War 4 - Max Settings
Averaging 115fps. The lowest I saw was 99fps during my benchmarks and playing the game. Looks fantastic and plays great!
The Surge - Ultra Settings
Again, averaging 110-120fps. It looks great!
Keep in mind, this is all being done with a 1st Gen Ryzen 5 1600 processor. The GPU takes a brunt of the work upfront, and it does it with ease. The highest I've seen it pushed so far is at 80% VRAM useage, during some parts in The Surge, other than that it's at around 50% VRAM usage for Forza and Gears.
Also, the RGB controls are wonderful, and it looks very slick inside the PC. Picture attached.Jul 07, 2019 00:54
I understand the hesitation behind buying 1600 series GPU after the 3000 series launch, but if you are looking for excellent 1080p to 1440p performance on a small-ish form factor card, this is definitely for you! It performs well in nearly all VR situations I've put it through, and gaming on my 75hz 1080p IPS display never felt so good. Paired with a Ryzen 2500x, you'll be far above playable FPS, even on most modern day titles on high settings. If your hesitant, don't be. Get it and I promise you won't regret it.
I have downloaded MSI Afterburner, but I have yet to mess with the out of the box OC settings.Oct 12, 2020 13:48
MSI yet again did a great job with the 1660Ti. This card is mainly for an entry level gamer wanting to get great 1080P content.
The way I’m using it is they mining. Currently this card gets 30MH/S on Ethash *Undervolted* under 75 watts. which is a mining ago utilize in cyrptocurreny. Yes I know gamers don’t like us but we contribute a great amount in nvidia sales as well and that’s one reason I’m writing this review.
Out of the box it shows the workman’s craft they put into the gaming edition great design and a touch of RGB.
I chose this card because of the looks mainly and the efficiency of the card. Also for resale value in the future. If your a miner you should already know this is one of the best efficient mining card and if your a casual gamer wanting decent FPS than this is a great choice of well. This card also requires an 8pin pci connector so make sure you have one available on your PSU
Happy Mining!May 21, 2019 17:55
Experience immersive gaming experience with this NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super gaming graphics card. The 6GB of memory and 1830MHz boost clock ensure superb gaming performance, while the GeForce Experience feature lets you capture and share live streams, videos and screenshots with friends. This NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Super gaming graphics card boasts a TORX FAN 3.0 feature for efficient heat management and optimal performance.
For the price it's a pretty high quality video card. Supports multiple monitors via HDMI and video ports. Supports my VR headset which was a must have when I was shopping and the added programmable RGB built in lighting is pretty cool as well.
Picture below does not do it justice due to all the RGB lighting but in person it stands out.Apr 24, 2020 16:02
This graphics card is amazing for my VR rig. I'm playing half-life alyx in high specs with the old oculus rift with no problem 10/10Apr 21, 2020 23:41
Was running a 580, went to this and it runs so much smoother. Doesnt over heat like the 580.Mar 20, 2020 15:50
with this graphics card you can play anything in 1080p in 144hz with 4k supportAug 17, 2020 18:29
Everything worked perfectly! The store clerks was very niceOct 24, 2020 09:50
Bought this card for my first self built pc, moved up from the 1060 3gb and there is a gigantic difference in performance. I'm able to easily play at the highest settings in games such as overwatch, subnautica, and PUBG with no problem at all. I've also been able to stream my games on high settings with no problem at all at 1080. My monitor is also locked at 60hz and 1080 as well so keep that in mind, I've heard it performs very well with 144hz monitors thought so that shouldn't be an issue.
The card also comes with 3 DisplayPort ports and only one HDMI port, no DVI ports at all so that is definitely something to look for depending on your monitor setup. But if you don't use DisplayPort you can always get adapters.
The fans themselves are also very quiet and only turn on when the card is under load, keeping your system relatively quiet. Temperatures usually stay at around 65 degrees during a typical gaming session.
Definitely one of the more expensive 1660 supers out there but I think it's worth it for the extra RGB which is adjustable with the Dragon Center software by MSI. It's definitely a well made card, feel sturdy and has a metal backplate to cover up the circuit board making your build look clean. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a powerful card but also doesn't want to break the bank too much.Apr 07, 2020 00:46
I'm giving this 5 stars because it works as well as it could. I planned on getting a 3070 but we all know how that went. Therefore I went for the 1660s because it can play games well even if it's not the greatest. Best Buy also had this card for a very cheap price. Like $150 cheaper than other places. Some fps counts. Gta V: 100-110 on medium/high. Cyberpunk: 60-70 medium. Rocket League: 144-200 Highest. COD Cold War: 100-120 medium/high.Dec 18, 2020 16:10
I decided to upgrade to this card from an ASUS strix 1050 Ti 4GB
I wasn't sure if it was gonna be worth it on my older system due to reviews online or you-tubers saying i will lose FPS, my CPU will bottleneck but it does work and it works well above my expectations. no stutters either! surprisingly!
I could play all the new games with my older card at 1080p HD at 40-60fps. but with this card, i can get surprisingly 80-90 fps on call of duty modern warfare, 110-140 fps on CS:GO on high/ultra settings with no stutters which is not bad considering my i5 6400 only has 4 cores & 4 threads. I can also get 40-50 fps on 4K setting (3840x2160) resolution but i'll rather just play on 1080p HD at (1920x1080) for now. of course streaming while gaming or VR wouldn't work with my setup. but i am pretty sure this card is VR ready.
and i was gonna go for a ryzen 7 3700x upgrade but after trying this out on my current setup why spend more money? i will just upgrade when i really have to or when money allows it. but for now, this works.
I also included pictures of my bench mark tests for those that are skeptical and no! my i5 isn't overclocked. i can't anyway. it's a regular 6400 and a none K. intel also put a stop to overclocking non k on Z170 mobos.
with that said, i almost forgot. you can also turn on RAY-TRACING on with this card (directX 12) and this requires a power supply at least 450W that has an 8-pin PCI connector for those who are new to pc building.
my budget PC specs are:
- i5 6400 air-cooled with an evo 212
- 32GB DDR4 2133MHZ
- MSI gtx 1660 super 6GB
- 650 watts PSU (corsair CX)

Get the ultimate gaming performance with GIGABYTE RTX 3060 Graphics Cards. Powered by NVIDIA's 2nd gen RTX architecture and refined with WINDFORCE cooling technology, the GeForce RTX 3060 GAMING OC 12G (rev. 2.0) brings stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications with its enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores.
This is a great card for video editing and gaming. But one thing I need to say is that I am not very happy about this card's price. This card is selling at $459, obviously, it is a great price in today's market. But, since 3060 launched at $329, it is still not very good to pay $130 above the MSRP on this non-flagship model. But since I got it, I am happy now.
*this card should be $399 in my opinion*Jul 08, 2021 17:04
It is an NVIDIA Graphics card, so you know it performs well. However, there are a few issues with this GPU. The first being that it is LHR which ultimately kills the after sale value if you decide to upgrade next year. Also, it hurts gamers trying to recoup a small amount of their value by mining when it is not bein used.
For the $500 price tag (after tax), it can barely keep up in most games at 1440p, let alone 4k gaming. The original targeted MSRP that NVIDIA had for the rtx 3060 was $329 was somewhat appropriate, but that's impossible to find now. If you are going to remove a feature of the card, at least lower the value to match it.Jul 25, 2021 19:12
Not a bad option considering the current GPU market. Can run most anything at 1440p without issue.Nov 05, 2021 16:05

From top to bottom, the ROG Strix GeForce RTX™️ 3060 has been designed to push performance boundaries. A fresh design and more metal surrounds a grouping of Axial-tech fans that leverage a new rotation scheme
I was able to get a hold of this card back in May, and it has been solid! I didn't pay scalp prices which was a relief, the 3060 is more of the budget card of the 3000 series, but this card can do anything, I am able to play any game at 1440p resolution so far at ultra settings and have not had any problems, I've played Warzone and average 80-130 FPS depending on where on the map you are playing, and other games and it has handled anything I throw at it with ease. I am very satisfied with this card, the RGB lighting is a bonus, and this is definitely one of the pretty looking cards!Sep 11, 2021 15:22
This card is really nice looking, even if it’s not a TI. I got this without a bot. A very helpful employee ordered it for me!May 13, 2021 15:13
WOW on the card damm it runs great, compared to a R9 390 10 year old card i had 2 this does both and extreme limits with no issues AAAA++++ i have it Maxed with a 3440x1440 ultras wide 144 it does it no problem i have DOOM and it have everything going at insane levels and not going over 50-60c on the computer the computer has a AIO and i7 7700 INTEL, Yea i payed 500 more but i didnt upgrade for 10 years so i hope there isent a 40 series card out soon 899 i paid i worked all winter to get it so i did and dont regret it it dont stutter or nothing running doom at max what a card do yourself a favor please experience something this rudeJul 01, 2021 22:04
Got this without a bot thanks to an amazingly helpful employee and he was very helpful checking on this card for me every day I came in, finally got the card and haven't been happier. Card runs great, doesn't ever overheat. All games run very nicely and everything I would highly recommend this card over most the others. Even though it's not the ti version it still runs great and everything.Jul 23, 2021 06:25

Large beefy cooler for a 3060. Quality built by Asus as always. Would definitely purchase again. Same cooler as the higher modelsAug 25, 2021 10:52
works great. Runs cool and has RGB.
heatsink and fan a bit large for a 3060 and had some trouble mounting in a smaller case.May 31, 2021 05:15
One of the best 3060 , I would recommend this ………………………….Sep 10, 2021 17:44

I paid regular price for this MSI GTX 1650 Super X 4-GB and for me that is expensive but I am very happy with this graphics card purchase.
The 1650S is as good as it gets for 1080p gaming. 4-GB is not enough for 4k so if that's your goal move up to a 6-GB card minimum.
This card does not have LEDs on the fans. It is 241mm long, 114mm tall and double width.
I have mine mounted sideways on a riser bracket so it will clear other items on my motherboard.
The card uses up to 100 watts and the documentation recommends 350 watt power supply minimum. It uses one 8 pin power connection.
Side note: in my pic my cpu cooler says AMD but my cpu is Intel I-7.Nov 29, 2020 09:39
This card has exceeded my expectations. Running warzone at a great fps that even my gameplay has improved. If you are on a budget get this card.Oct 08, 2020 22:27
Nice GPU im lucky i bought this when i did! Super nice looking tooMay 29, 2021 03:25
Great 1080 Card. Can run Call of Duty at high settings no problem. Really impressed with this card and it will do great while I wait for 30 series to become more available.Apr 20, 2021 22:31
I have a Dell XPS 8500... my old graphic card has been 'growling' inside my desktop for months now. Any time I open up Lightroom CC or Photoshop... and more importantly, Filmora, my video editing program of choice .... my GeForce 6200 would 'growl' and crash... all those issues.. gone. Glad I found this locally.. needed it fast for a project. .. No noise now :)Sep 16, 2020 17:47
The best graficar i recommend this 10o%
best item i boughtApr 10, 2021 00:36
I built an i5 gaming rig for my nephew. It’s his first rig and I didn’t think he would be playing graphic intense games. However, he asked me to install Call of Duty Modern Warfare so I did and to my surprise this GPU held up very well on a 1080p running at 144Mhz. It also, runs cooler than I expected. Highly recommend if your on the fence.Sep 04, 2020 16:13
Performs really well with my i5-9400 CPU. Very smooth gameplay and the capture technology works well. One star deduction because I purposely paid an extra $10 here than on amazon thinking that the metal GPU backplate was included (as stated in the Q&A section). No backplate is included. As far as performance however, I have no complaints and really think this is good value for what you're paying.May 12, 2020 16:14
Power up your gaming rig with this EVGA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER graphics card. Plug-and-play compatibility with most virtual reality headsets delivers easy pairing with your setup, while the G-SYNC support helps you experience your favorite games without screen tears and lag. Featuring 4GB of GDDR6 video memory, this EVGA GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER graphics card ensures enough per-pin bandwidth for high-quality textures.
I have never replaced a video card before. I’m not a gamer but more of a productivity computer user. The HDMI port on my 6 year old PC (Dell 3847) went out so I was hopeful this would work. Was easy to install and once I got the drivers installed it worked great. This is probably a little more video card than I need for my purposes but I’m glad I was able to fix it. Long live the desktop tower with replaceable parts! One other note - be sure that you have enough power. I replaced my power supply last year and I had more than enough power for it.Aug 30, 2020 12:41
Overpriced card but you can't do much in this market. Also packaging box came damaged and so did GPU box. Bottom EVGA sticker was cut. Likely refurbished, not new.Jun 03, 2021 22:07
Best bang for the buck, lucky to get it retail priceMay 28, 2021 23:47
Was there when the 3080 wasnt. Carried me thru a rough time in my life when i didnt have a 3080. Ill never forget what this card has done for me.May 22, 2021 03:37

I bought this as part of a computer build for a friend to get her feet wet in the world of PC gaming on a budget. Coupled with a Ryzen 3 3100 this thing gets 80-90fps on max settings in Apex Legends, which is perfect for what she wanted. Stress testing the card with a few passes in Unigine Heaven resulted in max temps of about 58 degrees with the fan speed set to automatic (it never got that loud either).
EVGA makes good stuff. This is the second card from them I've bought (I myself have a GTX 1080 FTW card and have had it for nearly four years now) and I couldn't recommend them highly enough. When I eventually get a new RTX 3080, you can bet it'll be an EVGA brand.Oct 31, 2020 10:53
Although a smaller graphics card when compared to the 2 and 3 series NVIDIA cards, this GPU is still a bang for your buck! Don't sleep.Nov 14, 2021 12:22
I previously had a GeForce GTX 560ti, and it died. I replaced it with this card (and nothing else on a rather old setup) and could not be happier. It’s at least 4x the performance, runs cooler, and uses less power. Delivery from Best Buy was super fast (2 days) and I got constant updates as well.Nov 21, 2020 15:27
The GeForce RTX 3090 is colossally powerful in every way, giving you a whole new tier of performance. It’s powered by Ampere—NVIDIA’s 2nd gen RTX architecture—doubling down on ray tracing and AI performance with enhanced RT Cores, Tensor Cores, and new streaming multiprocessors. Plus, it features a staggering 24 GB of G6X memory, all to deliver the ultimate gaming experience.
First, I need to give props to Best Buy: Thank you for keeping these at MSRP price, we truly appreciate this as GAMERS.
Secondly, this is perhaps the most exciting GPU for me in the last couple of years I have been building gaming RIGS.
Can't say I have ever camped outside a Best Buy the night before for ANYTHING!
Not even for a Black Friday sale!
But for this BFG, my only viable option was to camp the night before an inventory drop as paying 100% over MSRP is just plain ridiculous.
I play Call of Duty and Battlefield at 1440p, on 35 inch ultra-wide screens.
This card is off the charts on performance, FPS and gaming experience.
I've never experienced this performance before.
Truthfully, you can experience great gaming on a 3080 or 3080 TI too, however, that would be boring and with this, you get an extra 5-10% on performance.
EVERYTHING is just SMOOTHER, CLEANER, NO DRAMA in my opinion and experience so far.
- 1440p gaming is smooth
- 170+ FPS
- 24 GB memory (great for multi-tasking, rendering etc.)
- Low to Mid GPU temperatures
- Easy to overclock
- Best Buy sells these at MSRP
- Inventory (of course)
- Size (for those with small Cases)
- Power hungry (don't use a 750 W psu on this, 850 W is just barely enough, I highly recommend a 1,000 W PSU)

I was previously running a 5700xt, but I decided to upgrade from 2560x1600 to a full on 4k display and quickly hit frame rate issues in World of Warcraft @ Ultra settings and Deus Ex:MD @ Ultra. Couple this with the new Shadowlands game engine being Ray Tracing (RT) enabled along with patiently waiting for CyberPunk 2077 now due in December and I decided to take the plunge.
A nifty, "THE WAIT IS OVER!" in stock email popped up in my box and I was lucky enough to score one before it almost immediately went out of stock again.
Hardware wise, I'm running an EVGA Z390 FTW coupled with 9900k @ 5.2ghz and 32GB (4x8GB) of G.Skill B-Die @ 4000.
This card is pretty massive and expensive, but it gets the job done providing roughly 60fps everywhere @ 4k ultra with RT on high and shadows to high. I never knew WoW could look this good and be this beautiful. Seeing as this is my main game I play (and have played since Vanilla), RT is mandatory now for all my GPUs.
The custom FE heatsink and fan keep the card at 65 or cooler at all times while staying relatively quiet (my CPU fans get louder especially during raids). Even a mild overclock still keeps it relatively cool in the 60's. I absolutely LOVE the thick, industrial slab look of the FE heatsink with the lit up "GEFORCE RTX" on the top.
Is this card price:performance optimal? No, not even close. The 3080 is clearly the best price:performance spot within the Nvidia family even with the 3070 now here and as always, let your software determine your hardware; but if you want the best RT card on the market, right now this is it.
Everybody has their own idea of, "what's worth it." For some reason, people tend to have this odd, annoying habit of trying to tell others how they should spend their disposable income. For me, I wanted top notch performance and now having enabled RT in the game I play the most and at 4k, RT is mandatory now for myself and all future cards.Oct 28, 2020 09:44
Amazing card, obviously! After months of being out of stock, I snagged one when Best Buy dropped cards in the stores back in July. Runs anything you want as long as you're not bottlenecked anywhere else. You need the right display for this card, or you're wasting your money. 2k (1440) resolution at least. Oh...also, this baby weighs 7.2 lbs and doesn't require any sort of gpu mount due to the internal metals holding it up, just make sure you snug up the screws before letting go of this thing when you snap it into your PCI express slots. Runs quite and cool stock but I still can't wait to get it water cooled!Aug 19, 2021 23:34
The holy grail of gpu’s.
What more can I say.
Actually I have more.
It’s huge, and that’s an understatement.
It runs wicked hot.
If mining the thermals need replace.
But its 3.0 backwards compatible so if you have a pc from the past 10 years you’ll be good and the 24gb ram is more than enough for anything.
Waited 13 hours in line abs so happy I was able to get one.Oct 12, 2021 15:03
Absolutely amazing card. Do not waist your time with the 3080 ti (way over priced). I’m running this on a 48” lg oled and it runs everything at 120 fps (tv max frame rate).
The build quality is the best I have ever seen with a gpu.
The card is a beast… HUGE! Get a gpu bracket/support bracket for added long term security and pease of mind. Having this said, there was no sag when I installed this card. Shocking since my 1070 and 1080 both sagged.
Got to the store at 5am to pick up this card. I was happy to see they passed out tickets per card. Therefore, I knew before getting in side the store the card I wanted was available.Jul 22, 2021 09:21
I upgraded my 1080 ti even though I didn’t need to. I am glad I did though because now I have incentive to upgrade to PCI E 4 and get all the other features like more USB 3.0 , ddr4 and m2 4x4 ssd. This card right now is hooked up to my 2nd gen i7 2700k at 4.5 ghz, 16gb ddr3, sata 3 ssd, etc. For such an old system it still can push this card at 1440p ultra but I do know I’m bottlenecked by the cpu but not for long. I am just deciding whether or not to go intel again since this 2700k just won’t quit even after years of being Oc’d or AMD since I have heard good things about them recently.Jul 28, 2021 12:05
Aside from the obvious availability issues plaguing this generation, the RTX 3090 is everything I could ask for in a GPU. Loads of VRAM for TensorFlow and potentially next-gen games, 10496 Cuda cores and 82 RT cores chew through everything I throw at them, whether it be CyberPunk or Control. While Nvidia didn't explicitly market the 3090 as a successor to the 2080 Ti, it's obviously not truly a Titan card (lacking the certified drivers), which places it in a weird spot as far as gaming goes (double the price of the 3080 but only 15% better on average). Physically, the card is about the same size as the 3080 FTW3 Ultra Gaming I had previously, and performance is only about 10-15% better on average. Still, if you need the 24GB of VRAM and the beefier cooler, and can swallow the steep price, you won't be disappointed with this card.
Running on my Samsung Odyssey G9 monitor, Cyberpunk and Control both hover around 70-80 FPS with all settings on Ultra using Ray Tracing and DLSS. The card stays around 67-68 Celsius and is barely audible, which is a welcome improvement over previous generations of Founders Edition cards. Still, I would highly recommend an undervolt for daily use. I'm able to maintain clock speeds of 1920MHz at 837mV and the power usage stays around 350-370 watts in Control, and 250-270 watts in AC Valhalla.
Overall, very satisfied with this card, and can't wait to get a waterblock on it and see how far it can be pushed.Jan 19, 2021 10:23
The RTX 3090 literally can power through any workload. It would run Call of Duty Cold War with Ray Tracing and max settings in 4K with no problems and even Microsoft Flight Simulator at a playable frame rate. Just make sure you have a good enough power supply to support the card.Oct 13, 2021 09:21
Customize your gaming rig with this PNY GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER graphics card. The 4GB of GDDR6 memory and 1280 CUDA processing cores let you play modern games smoothly, while the DisplayPort, HDMI and DVI-D ports offer flexible connectivity to UHD monitors. This PNY GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER graphics card has NVIDIA Ansel technology for capturing quality in-game screenshots, and the NVIDIA Turing architecture delivers ultra-realistic visuals.
Great GPU for people that are starting out. Would advise upgrading in the future..Sep 25, 2020 15:54
Came in good condition and has a warranty. The package is nice and is safe.Feb 16, 2021 19:33
If you are looking for a graphics card that can easily handle 1080p gaming at high settings with low power requirements, this is it. I purchased this card to upgrade a 7-year-old pre-build from Asus. It was a huge improvement from the weak GT630 that came with my machine. This card does require a 6-pin power connector so make sure you have one free. I had to use a twin molex to 6-pin adapter for mine to work. If you also have a low-wattage power supply and don't have any free plugs, check out the standard GTX 1650, which powers straight from the PCIe slot. The new version of the standard 1650 also features GDDR6 memory like the Super, it just doesn't have as many CUDA cores.Apr 27, 2020 12:42
Got this for a budget build on a dell 990 Mt. It is getting a 298 fps in CS:Go and 88 fps in Laura Croft Rise of The Tomb Raider.It stays nice and cool during gaming.Price to performance a great value!Aug 15, 2020 18:45
I have been looking for graphic card to upgrade my son's PC with very small case. This is a very good card for price, you can run most games with 1080 res. You can buy more expensive cards with better proformance, but in my case we had a budget set. With adding SSD, 16G memory and this card it gave new life to his PC. Anymore money spend would be better to just get new gaming PC.
Graphic card is easy to install, it need 6pin power and runs very quiet. Nivida software take care of all drivers. Totally worth it if you are trying to upgrade current graphic card with more momery, faster gpu and does not require lot of power that you have replace power supply.Sep 05, 2020 16:16
I bought this GPU as a place holder until all the 30 series become available again. I have been impressed by the performance this card has in games like Fortnite, CS:GO and Warzone. Absolutely a great value to performance ratio.Feb 06, 2021 11:15
Great 1080p gaming card not just for the price, but in general! 1080p 60 is not at all an issue for this card! Its even pretty decent for streaming to with its nvenc encoder! would recommend!Jan 20, 2021 02:11
Purchased the XLR8 card along with an EVGA 600-watt power supply that came with the 6 pin PCIE to power the card with. If you do not have an available 6 pin PCIe cable, then you will need to purchase an adapter. Installed components in about 30 minutes +/-. Running FSX flight simulator with this card is night and day opposed to the embedded Intel graphic card which only allowed low FPS with minimal settings.May 05, 2020 14:46
Get the ultimate gaming performance with AORUS RTX 3060 Graphics Cards. Powered by NVIDIA's 2nd gen RTX architecture and refined with WINDFORCE Cooling technology, the AORUS GeForce RTX 3060 Ti ELITE 8G (Rev 2.0) brings stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications with its enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores.
Great card with a beautiful cooler. Temps are good and performance is solid. Glad i could finally buy oneOct 16, 2021 19:50
Great card. Please note that this card is quite long, I didn't consider that when ordering but moved some fans to the outside of the case and made it work. Beggers cant be choosers when it comes to GFX cards right now.Nov 05, 2021 16:44
Simple to install and no issues getting it up and running in a few minutes. Handles everything I can throw at it with no issues. Very happy to get it at MSRP.Oct 18, 2021 17:08
Great gpu, this card packs a good punch on par with a 3070ti. Pair it with a good mobo and you can overclock it while getting great temps was estatic to get this card through a return in store and not pay an outrageuos price.Oct 29, 2021 15:20
Great GPU, especially for the price. I have been waiting to get myself a decent gpu for a personal build.Oct 22, 2021 22:12
Great card, wish it was a bit cheaper, but better than scalpers priceNov 05, 2021 17:50
Very good temps, would buy again in a heartbeat. PLUS 5 YEAR WARRANTYOct 29, 2021 17:20
Product is super fast and a four year warranty after registering is awesome!Oct 23, 2021 02:44
Get the ultimate gaming performance with GIGABYTE RTX 3070 Graphics Cards. Powered by NVIDIA's 2nd gen RTX architecture and refined with WINDFORCE cooling technology, the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3070 AORUS 8G brings stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications with its enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores.
This card is amazing. It has one of the best coolers ive seen, it's not too flashy with the RGB but who cares if it delivers performance. When I got this it was at a reasonable price, atleast compared to the others. Sadly it's raised, but this card is a 10/10 in my books. Never has ran over 70c even in under 4k loads, along with using CUDA Cores for workstation purposes. Never had a problem with the RGB Fusion and AORUS Engine software like other people said.Feb 12, 2021 00:06
i’m not a bot btw, got this legitly. don’t hate, i know you want itMay 07, 2021 16:17
Finally got lucky enough to grab this one for my friend he likes it and it works amazinglyFeb 26, 2021 15:55
The performance of this card is outstanding. I am able to play recent AAA games like COD:CW and CP2077 with DLSS at 4K at around 60 fps. Plays older games like Star Wars Battlefront 2, Borderlands 3, Just Cause 4, and FarCry 5 at 4k at ultra-settings above 60 fps. The 8GB of VRAM is rather limiting for future games at 4k but would be plenty for 1440p and 1080p for a long time. Temps are around 65C at max load and the fans are not that loud at all.
The screen is a nice feature it is able to display your current temps, clock speed, etc. However, the default setting is their “Chibi Mode” and if you do not like that you have to change it with Gigabyte’s own RGBFusion2.0. RGBFusion2.0 has a reputation of being buggy and broken. It took a while for Gigabyte to release a version that would run on my computer. I eventually got it working but your millage may vary.
Overall great card if you are able to get one at MSRP.Mar 05, 2021 16:58
Exactly what I was expecting/hoping for. This Aorus Master 3070 is by far my favorite GPU as far as looks go and the screen on the GPU is awesome. The software to adjust RGB and the image on the screen work perfectly. Really happy to have gotten this GPU.Feb 01, 2021 13:40
I score this 3070 during the whole chip shortage ordeal. I wasn't looking for this one in particular, but I couldn't afford to be picky. However, I am so glad I got this card! It works really well, maxes out around 71 degrees Celsius while gaming, and the screen on the side looks fantastic! I can play almost any game on its highest settings in 4K and still maintain 60 FPS. Gigabyte really designed a great card!Jul 27, 2021 15:06
When I got this card, I really couldn’t believe I got the 3070 that I wanted. Call it superficial, but I was hooked on getting the little screen.
However, upon attempting to set up the card, I get errors with the screen where it gets stuck either on the little metal eagle egg or the aorus logo and you can’t change any LCD options after that, as Gigabyte’s RGB software is... well, a pile of crap. If you attempt to use some of the features of the LCD (i.e. uploading a gif or custom text) it does that eagle egg thing and Gigabyte’s software STOPS DETECTING ITS OWN CARD.
The solution? Well after hours across days and many experiments with resets and deleting certain files and uninstalling and reinstalling... I finally found a helpful reddit comment in some obscure post. Combining what that person said with that I had been doing works. (I will put the method at the bottom for those interested). Their most recent Aorus Experience update got the LCD panel working for me for a while, but if you have any other graphics cards going through the system for any reason, it completely screws over the software and you get the infuriating little metal egg.
HORRIBLE SOFTWARE ASIDE (when you get the gif feature working it’s super cool and having a temps/fans/other stats monitor panel is nice):
the actual card ROCKS. It runs a bit toasty compared to other aftermarket cards, as the Gigabyte aftermarkets tend to (buyer beware GB’s thermal pads are low quality) but the temps still stay well within ideal. I have an airflow case though, so do pay attention. The fan mechanism on this is an absolute beast and looks like one too, but you do have to give it air and understand where the 3070 cards in general spit out their hot air.
Overclocking is absolutely unnecessary but as a hobbyist I’m finding that you can crank out amazing performance AND undervolt to save a buck on electricity and spare some heat. On top of that, IIRC this card is one of the best two or three cards in terms of aftermarket base/boost clock speeds right out of the box, blowing the FE out of the water. I don’t play the eye candy games (ahem cyberpunk) that most people use as judgement, but this beast of a card EASILY achieves max settings on Overwatch 1440p, staying above 144fps. Overwatch is well optimized, sure, but I still achieve 144+ fps on mostly cranked settings WHILE HAVING OTHER GPU-DEMANDING PROCESSES GOING.
To fix the eagle egg of doom:
- first off, HAVE A BACKUP when messing with stuff like this
- cleanly uninstall all Gigabyte software including all the leftover files (I use Revo Uninstaller). (Some of the software is sneaky like the Patriot SSD software, which is downloaded with the Aorus suite even without a Patriot SSD) and get rid of their RGB Fusion software too
- download DDU and most recent working Aorus Engine. You MAY also have to roll back to comparable Nvidia drivers and keep it from updating... I didn’t have to do that this time. I kept these files on my desktop to make safe mode easier.
- Restart, booting into safe mode.
- Run DDU and select the “nvidia GPU” options and the “turn off computer as if installing a new GPU option”. The computer will shut itself off when the process is over.
- Boot up once more. (No nvidia drivers so your monitor may act weird and lower quality. All is fine.)
- Install Aorus Engine using the file you downloaded. Open it and click the RGB GPU button in the lower right. it will prompt you to download RGB Fusion 2.0, and possibly update the firmware. Do both of those things. (DO NOT try to attempt RGB Fusion by itself. Always use Aorus Engine to do it. I had horrible crashes and some people (not me) reported data loss from trying RGB fusion alone.)
- Let it do its installs, then try clicking the RGB GPU button again.
- All features on the LCD should work! I’m still afraid of getting the software “stuck” again, so I like to set it to the system monitor in a tasteful white scheme and just leave it alone.
ANYWAY, TLDR: The guts of this card are great, with some of the best clock speeds and a really well engineered cooler (minus thermal pads). This card is more power than most gamers need and then some! However, Gigabyte’s software needs some SERIOUS help and had me even thinking about returning the card once or twice. Yes... even in this GPU shortage. If you’re not comfortable troubleshooting software stuff, tread carefully with this one until they give a better update.
****Mar 12, 2021 16:45
Great performing card! I can play any AAA title at 1440p on ultra graphics and still get 120+ FPS at factory clocks. It overclocks nicely and has ample cooling to keep temps in check. The LCD screen is a nice touch.
Would have rated this card 5 stars, But the software you have to use to overclock and control the LCD and the RGB lighting is nothing short of terrible.Sep 21, 2021 15:39
The TUF GAMING GeForce RTX™ 3060 has been stripped down and built back up to provide more robust power and cooling. A new all-metal shroud houses three powerful axial-tech fans that utilize durable dual ball fan bearings. Fan rotation has been optimized for reduced turbulence, and a stop mode brings all three fans to a halt at low temps
Perfect card for someone not trying to spend to much on a new card.Jun 04, 2021 15:57
It has a phenomenal custom cooler, factory overclock, and it has massive headroom/overclocking-friendly features.
It's an excellent mid-range RTX 3060 choice above almost all the rest. Yes it's a bit pricey over the Nvidia's FE Graphics Cards and is also bigger in size.
The esthetics of this graphics card is wickedly superb.
In my opinion it is definitely worth it.
You will love the power in performance the Asus Tuf RTX 3060 empowers you with.
Excellent 1080p/1440p gaming!
Phenomenal custom cooler!
Stylistic & loaded with overclocking friendly features!
Beast running at 10800p with Ray-Tracing On!
The #1 best feature being (DLSS) 2.0 is an outstanding measure of what these new-gen cards can pull off!!
Price might be an issue for some.
It's bigger size is aimed towards a medium to larger size length in PC cases.
Maybe 12GB's of memory not being the best attraction for the extra GB's really don't mean anything without the inner-core power output being rather limited! This GPU is honestly never going to benefit with the 4GB added on to it!
*I highly recommend the ASUS TUF GeForce RTX 3060 OC Gaming Video Graphics Cards*Jun 12, 2021 00:23
This is a great GPU. I am coming from a 1050ti. I use this for 3d modeling, making games in Unity, and gaming. It is extremely fast and quiet. I can get 260 fps in rocket league, max settings. And Ray Tracing looks beatiful in Minecraft and Fortnite.Jul 31, 2021 14:02
I have been ordering products from best buy for years and although their service has always been pleasant this particular situation set the bar far above the rest. I had to drive 2 hours to pick up the new and almost forever out of stock rtx 30 series graphics card that was sent to the Oswego best buy location. The team there went way above and beyond to ensure that I was able to leave with my order. I can not possibly say thank you enough and you have certainly gained a for life customer! Thank you Oswego best buy. I certainly wish I caught the name of the employee that helped me specifically but he knows who he is. Thank you so much! You made my day during times when that is so absolutely needed.Jun 30, 2021 15:58
Great card. Stays extremely cool with this heatsink. Probably over kill for this specific gpu but better to be cold than hot.May 19, 2021 20:24
As another one of my reviews, bought this for a friend. They have also had no issues with this card. Unfortunately with ASUS, you have to pay an extra price on top of other cards, but it is a great card still.Aug 11, 2021 06:39
It was hard to get I got luck. The card is pretty good has 3fans always get above 100fpsOct 20, 2021 02:22
I was lucky enough to grab one of these swinging by my local Best-Buy. Due to current circumstances, it was priced as much as the RTX 3070 FE, but let's be honest a card the in computer is better than integrated graphics. The cooling system does a great job at keeping the temps in the mid 50's while under load.Aug 22, 2021 15:15
From top to bottom, the ROG Strix GeForce RTX 3070 has been radically improved to accommodate the impressive new Ampere chips from NVIDIA and to deliver the next wave of gaming performance innovation to the market. A fresh design and more metal surrounds a grouping of Axial-tech fans. Last gen's uniform fan layout has been usurped by a new rotation scheme and specialized roles for central and auxiliary fans.
It can take on almost any game with maxed settings and still push 200 fps. It comes with 5 video outputs 2 HDMI and 3 DP making it great for multiple monitors. Giving it another one up on the founders.Mar 12, 2021 21:48
Before even opening the antistatic bag, I could see three screws floating around in the bag. These screws belonged to the fan shroud, which go between the pcb itself and the fan shroud. There was no way to get these back in place without taking the card apart, putting the screws in, and re-pasting, and then testing. Hopefully this isn't common. 2/5 since it does work after this, but this is completely inexcusable on ASUS's end.
Only help ASUS offered was to bring the card back to the store for an exchange (yeah like that's going to happen with how hard these cards are to get)Mar 13, 2021 00:05
1440p 120hz~144hz is my desired game settings. Graphics range from med to ultra depending on the setting. This card hits that. DLSS boost that. Re:
village seen lows of 56fps but ran all the way to 110. I am pleased with the performance. So the strix model it’s self. A very solid card the metal feel and great rgb lighting. The fans run silent and keeps the card around 54c while gamingJul 16, 2021 16:21
Well kudos to Best Buy to at least ensure these weren't easily purchased by bots. I was lucky enough to buy this even after the Tarrif hike its a great card. Overclocked better than my msi gaming x Trio and looks good doing so. This is a premium card for a reason build quality is top notch. Would recommend this to anyone with a little higher budget and wants a card that can be displayed. Down side is at the price your in RTX 3080 territory so if you can get one then definitely go 3080.Jan 27, 2021 14:14
This GPU is a beast! I came from a ROG Strix GTX 1080 and the upgrade is massive, from the cuda cores, to upgraded VRAM, and of course, DLSS/RT performance! The card is also beautiful and just fun to own! One thing though, the left side of the GPU appears to have a small gap between the cooler and the GPU heatsink/plate. Despite this asymmetrical anomaly, the GPU runs cool and never tops 71 degrees celsius. Buy it!Feb 26, 2021 01:05
First review baby! What can I say? Getting this card felt like winning the lottery. Runs dang cool and quiet at around 48C-54C. (Take that FE!) OC reached a stable 2.3Ghz. Time to join Keanu in CyberPunk. Its summary, its breathtaking!Nov 28, 2020 17:04
This is a great card if you're lucky enough to get your hands on it. The strix series is the best for the 30' series at the moment. Still wild how AIBs make income so don't expect to get an fe card without being super lucky.Nov 03, 2021 22:25
Thank heavens that there is a republic for us gaemers. There is a republic made by Asoos that allows us to be the greatest STRIXERS there is around. There is so much STRIX in this card, it makes me so happy. THank you mr asoosJul 30, 2021 14:25

Ordering and Shipping:
This was the first graphics card I have purchased and Best Buy's system for waiting in line actually worked pretty well. I was "waiting in line" for both an FE and this card and this is the card that I was able to check out with. I ordered on Nov. 20 for about $830 after tax and received the card on Nov. 28 in perfect condition.
Build quality of the card is fantastic. No scuffs on the exterior, no scratches, perfect finish. This white, silver, and purple design is beautiful. I think this card is probably the best looking 30 series card.
Stock performance on this card is fantastic. Stock idle temps for me (H510 Elite) were about in the low 40s during idle and during gaming sessions I never saw it go above 60 Celsius with highest settings enabled and ray tracing on in games like Cyberpunk 2077 and Black Ops Cold War. This card also maxes out my monitors refresh rates (155hz 1440p and 240hz 1080p) in pretty much every game that I throw at it except the most demanding games. With some help from MSI afterburner, I was able to get a +110 core clock and +750 memory clock. I also adjusted the fan curve so now my card idles in the mid 30s and never gets above 55 Celsius during gaming which I'd call a win considering the case I have. In addition, my memory junction temps never really go above the mid 70s during gaming and the card is pretty quiet, even with the adjusted fan curve. I'm unsure about how much this card draws in terms of power, but I'm running it using an NZXT 750W power supply and haven't had any issues.
Honestly, I don't have much to say that's negative about this card. My biggest complaint is how poorly lit the Gigabyte logo is. I believe they only use 1 LED behind a light diffuser to light the logo and it looks quite poor. My other complaint is that on the side of the card facing you once it's installed, there's a cable that runs across the hit sink. The cable seems to be fine, but it doesn't look good considering the rest of the card looks incredible. While not really a con, I'd be weary of how physically big the card is. It is a LARGE card and may not fit every case that you try to put it in. In my H510 Elite, I have a little less than an inch of clearance between the end of the card and the radiator.
Overall, I'd recommend this card to anyone and everyone. Even in my H510 Elite case, which is known for bad thermals, it outperforms my friends founders edition 3080s in both temps and gaming and one of them is running their card in a Meshify C, a high airflow case. If you're able to get your hands on this card, consider yourself lucky. Gigabyte did a fantastic job with it and I'm very happy and lucky to have been able to get one when I did and have been so blessed with it thermally. Finally, at the time I purchased the card, I paid $830 after tax. At this price, I would consider the card to be a good value. At current prices, I would not consider this card, or any card similarly priced, to be that good of a value, but I will use the price I purchased it at for the breakdown.May 03, 2021 00:34
Best car did you can get your hands on it. I had all the stock alerts and got this card out of shear luck one morning when one of these alerts woke me up. Could not be happier with this card but disclaimer: ITS HUGE! I had to take off the extra hard drive bay just to make this thing fit! Make sure to measure it out before buying.Dec 06, 2020 02:15
The Gigabyte Vision OC 3080 is a great card and a great overclocker after some modification. In games and while mining it was thermal throttling on the memory controller, rapidly hitting 110C.
I opened it up and replaced the thermal pads over the memory and memory controller with Gelid 2mm pads. I also placed some 2.5mm pads between the memory and the backplate though I'm not sure how much those are actually contributing. The pads between the memory and the cooler are the most important ones.
After this modification the memory controller never exceeds 82C and my in-game and mining overclocks are much more stable. It seems like Gigabyte cheaped out on this key component of the card but after adding another $20 to an $1100 card it really shines.
If you manage to pick one of these up I can't recommend this modification enough even if you aren't planning on mining. Just in-game temps were causing thermal throttling out of the box.
Also it is a chonky boi. Make sure it's going to fit in your case before you buy one. In addition to being a 2.5 slot card. it's large enough that it required I remove the extra hard drive cage from my Fractal Design Define R4 and it's almost as deep as a Noctua NH-D15.Jul 08, 2021 09:09
Took 4 months to snag one, but well worth it. Upgraded from a 1070ti there was a huge performance boost in games. Handles 1440p gaming very well.
-Card is big so make sure to have a case, length wise, that’s big enough to support this beast.
- graphic quality
- aesthetically pleasing
- easy to set up
- customizable Gigabyte logo colors
- Fan software isn’t the best (new updates take a long time to download)Mar 19, 2021 18:32
This is a fantastic RTX 3080 card if you can find it in stock. In terms of temps it reaches max 68 C under full load while gaming with the fans not ramping up too loud. It is very well made and fits the white aesthetic very well (it is the only white RTX 3080 that I know of atm). One trivial detail is that the Gigabyte logo only has one LED that lights from the right side so the light is uneven.Jan 05, 2021 10:57
Runs great. Cool and quiet. Max temps hit 71 using stock fan curve. Couldn’t be happier with the performance at 1440p.Oct 23, 2020 20:30
Originally tried to secure an FE, but I have no qualms ordering this version - it goes beautifully with my white PC case and PSU cables. I don't overclock on my own, but I still reach 2010 Mhz occasionally when playing the Witcher 3 in 4K 160hz with upgraded texture mods, with 100-130 FPS always.
Card runs cool in my average airflow case (h510i), haven't gotten past 73 degrees. Even in mid 60% fan speed, the card is still relatively quiet. I typically game with studio monitors, I don't really hear my PC over the game noise.Dec 04, 2020 14:59
What can I say, it’s the RTX 3080 and hard to get hands on one. This version however, has clean lines, unique color scheme and an overall great look. Performed exceptionally well out of the box. Blows away all previous generations at a fraction of the costJan 02, 2021 12:32

I like the fact that this card is double the performance in many ways than the GTX 1070ti it replaced. The main concern I have with this card is the power connector. They had room to put a standard 8 pin connector but went with this proprietary connector...and the pins are horribly small. I contacted Nvidia tech support and they shrugged it off. Only 6 pins of the 12 pin header are even used on a 3070fe. I would feel better about this if all pins were used to lower chance of connector burning out. Good luck finding one and hope it last!Nov 29, 2020 00:13
What a great gpu, this thing is amazing, we are talking 900 fps in minecraft without shaders or optifine. With shaders 200-300. The fans turn on automatically and the rgb lighting looks great. I would highly recommend and it does very solid 1440p gaming. I know they aren't in stock much but I would recommend this.Nov 30, 2020 07:21
The card looks good! The backplate feels great. Card runs pretty good and I overclocked my card lightly and ran benchmark and performed in the 90th percentile out of all 3070 tests. The rgb is silly since it was just a little tiny strip. The problem I had with this card was the metal bracket. It was bent a bit and it couldn’t go into the case. I had to gently bent the metal bracket so it was straight. I had no problems with the “Gigabyte pin problems” but hopefully you don’t too.Jan 22, 2021 14:15
Very nice, works great, a lot faster then my old 1080Jan 15, 2021 23:37
Good graphics card, hard to get but was able to get oneMay 14, 2021 15:38
Works really great. Glad that I could get this productDec 05, 2020 07:35
Very fast GPU that looks good. This GPU has also been reliable since I got it. I recommendDec 25, 2020 18:51
It processes my computer graphics quite well. Very Nice.Nov 23, 2020 22:39

Love this card, it is one of the few white 30 series cards that exist and gygabite did an amazing job not only with thermal design but with the look of the actual card, would recommend a buy if the card ever goes back in stockApr 22, 2021 11:17
Great video card!! Have been running for 6 months now with no issues!!Jun 03, 2021 12:25
Very disappointed after the continual search for a single card in stock just to have a chance to spend over six hundred dollars on a card to arrive and to slot it in with anticipation just to have artifacts across my screen randomly and to make my games crash become of this. I’d return this card and get my money back but I know doing so I would be unable to get another 3070 for a long time due to the lack of cards. I’m sure this card runs amazing for people who received it without hardware issues but sadly I am not one of them.Dec 05, 2020 15:47
I was so excited to even get a 3070, but to get this version of it. The looks and feel of this card is amazing, the performance is amazing as well. All I had to do was update the drivers, & it was good to go, I was nervous at first to try this card out but it is worth it.Feb 14, 2021 19:09
Nice looking card, but big quality control issues on Gigabyte’s part.
I had to return this card because it was running very hot under load. The fans would also go crazy. I pull the card out and flip it over and see this GROSS yellow popcorn butter-looking oil coming out of the fan well. Apparently it is GB’s thermal pads just disintegrating,
I’m glad I had this issue before my 14 days of possible return was up, but... get your crap together please GB.
I’m incredibly frustrated because I was unable to get a replacement card with it being out of stock everywhere. Event though I did nothing wrong, I no longer have my 3070 due to a manufacturer defect, and now I have to keep trying to get one of these impossible cards.Mar 12, 2021 16:51
Beautiful card, don't surpass 65 degrees on High/Ultra settings in Black Ops: Cold War at 1440p
Only complaint would be (as others have stated) the RGB doesn't encompass the entire Gigabyte logo, which doesn't bother me a whole lot.Jan 15, 2021 17:13
I got a 3070 at MSRP... >$700 back in May. It's white, which will most likely yellow with time, but I'm not too concerned about appearances. I'd seriously avoid white if you have a window in your system. In this chip shortage, though you take what you can get. Performance is great, in spite of running in mediocre ventilation in a cramped mini-ITX case. One nice feature of this card is that it comes tuned with the maximum power budget enabled by default, which improves your performance without messing about with overclocking.Oct 14, 2021 06:38
This card looks so sexy pictures do it no justice, it preforms great and so far I’ve had it over clocked with out any problems. If I had something to gripe about it would prolly be the led that’s behind the logo, the white seems a bit dim and off to one side of it, not a deal breaker though. Still a great card!Jan 01, 2021 18:11

My son (13) and I built his first gaming PC and decided to hold out to get the GTX 1060 instead of the more expensive 970. We paid $250 so could not beat the price. The card went in no problem and everything has been running smoothly since day one. It runs quiet and does not get hot at all. We have thrown a bunch of heavy games at it (ARK) and ran beautifully on 1080.Aug 20, 2016 14:17
These cards draw very low power. About 110 a piece which is great for the hashrate which is generally around 19mhs on ETH. The only complaint is the price although they've been dropping as of late. When I picked it up it was 299.99 which was a fair deal then.Sep 23, 2017 08:24
This card runs super quiet even while under full load. Some other pros are that this GPU runs around 100fps in 1080P on almost all games even Shadow of Mordor. The very low power draw from the card is also a nice bonus.
Cons - 250$ is a little steep for a mid range card, but I don't regret it at all.Aug 20, 2016 03:09
This card doesn't not have all the fancy cooling feature so of it's more expensive competitors. However, what you are getting is a basic Gtx 1060 that performs how it should at a good price and a good value.Sep 16, 2016 18:33
I purchased this video card to replace my R9 380 4gb OC. I have to tell you this card is 50% better! I'm getting 62fps avg. on games like GTA V and Tomb Raider. I have an I5 4690s with 16gb of ram and this beast of a video card. The card itself runs cool and fairly quiet. If you're thinking of getting this video card over the RX 480.. Don't think twice about it - this is the card for you!Aug 02, 2016 02:14
At the time, I purchased this card before the crypto mining hit its peak. I payed $340 and have had no issues with itDec 19, 2018 18:18
Packaging: Upset that the card wasn't in an anti-static bag as I was going to use that for my old GPU but nonetheless the packaging was pretty decent.
Noise: I'm always wearing headphones so I never hear anything but overall I do not notice a difference in fan noise, sounds just like my 750ti.
Price: You cannot beat this price, better than the 970 & cheaper? What a steal.
Performance: I only play one game in particular and my 750ti gets the job done but in some areas of the game it'll go below 40FPS and that's why I made this purchase. My 750ti would idle at ~35 FPS on ultra @ 1080p, with the 1060 in the same area, I average 100FPS on ultra @ 1080p.
Also, make sure your power supply has an extra 6 pin connector (usually it's a 6+2) in order to give this card some power. Only adding this in because my friend who's clueless when it comes to computers had no idea he needed such a thing and had to upgrade his power supply in order to run the card.
Anyways, if you game in 1080p, I highly recommend this card, won't need to make an upgrade for quite some time.Sep 01, 2016 11:38
I wish it had back plate PNY needs to work on that but other than that very niceMar 03, 2018 11:31

Its in my system rn, works exellent. I won the silicon lottery with this one. Undervolts and overclocks like crazy. Temps are great too 60max on my undervold.Oct 19, 2021 18:55
I was lucky enough to get one of these cards for my Fiancé. She had an old and tired 1070ti. This card is very powerful for what it is. We're playing Biomutant at 4k max @60fps and even more demanding titles like RDR2 @1440P with everything cranked to the max.Jul 04, 2021 15:16
I bought this card to replace my 5700xt. Got the card, opened it up and it turned out to be HUGE. It almost did not fit in my h510i. I had to pull off the fans on the radiator in the front. The card has great performance for gaming. You should be able to get above 75 FPS on all games and 125+ FPS on games like warzone and apex on high settings. Getting this card was a struggle though due to the shortage.
Tip: If you are struggling to get a GPU right now, try to get a 3070ti, or a 3080ti as they are LHR(Low Hash Rate) Cards. That means that they are not that great for mining. People who need a GPU for mining will try to avoid this making them easier to get for Gamers!Jul 17, 2021 11:52
I am amazed that I actually got this card given the stock shortages. Nonetheless, the card is great and can run all my games with ease, 120+ fps on warzone and black ops cold war on high quality settings. The card also looks very nice.Jul 19, 2021 23:50
This is my first Gigabyte card and I am impressed with the quality and performance so far! Played Assassin's Creed Valhalla at max settings, 1440p, hovered around 75-90fps. Cyberpunk 2077 at High Settings with Ray Tracing set to High with DLSS Quality at Balanced above 60fps as well.
What most stands out to me is how quiet it is. Under normal load (browsing the web, idle, etc) the fans turn off completely. Temps are around 40-45 during this time. There is a OC and Silent options at the flick of the switch. I haven't tried the Silent, but I think the clock speeds are lower which means the fans would spin up less often. OC mode is what I'm using and my temps haven't gone above 65. Fans are quieter than my previous FE 2070 Super. I was also able to add +100 to the Core Clock and +750 to the Memory using MSI Afterburner.
The LED light is okay, not great. The middle part is dimmer than the edges. RGB Fusion software works well enough and uses very little memory (13 MB). It's a huge card, so check your clearance! Uses two 8-pin PCI-E connectors. There is a little sag so I also got a GPU support bracket.Jul 10, 2021 12:32
This would be an amazing card if it was $200 cheaper, for close to $900 you’re not really getting much of a performance boost from the 3070.
Other than the cost to performance this is still a great card.
With the increased heat fins and triple fan cooling capacity I haven’t seen the card get above 65c, even after playing BF5 for extended hours.
Having the choice between two bios setting is also a nice feature, I’ve left mine in OC mode since I got the card and have been impressed so far with the noise level that I haven’t worried about changing to the silent mode.
The rgb logo is a nice addition, although it’s not a lot it’s still a nice looking logo that looks well done.
The cards size is something you might want to think about with this card if you’re thinking a small form case, this thing is thicc! I have a standard sized case and with three fans in the front and with the card installed there is about a 1-1.5 Inch clearance between them. The size of this card also causes it to snag a bit, but not to much to cause worry.
Over all a great card.Aug 15, 2021 15:33
Excellent, quick shipping to store. with the Aorus engine easy to fine tune the card to perform and stay cool while rocking 1440p UltraNov 05, 2021 15:25
This card is a beast. Playing games as taxing as Warzone and getting frames in the 150 range (previous to the season update it was closer to 170s). Bonus as a regularly mounted gpu, the back plate is very nice looking.Sep 05, 2021 11:47
Customize your gaming PC with this PNY GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER gaming graphics card. The 6GB of GDDR5 RAM deliver fast, responsive performance, while the PCIe 3.0 interface fits a number of motherboards. This PNY GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER gaming graphics card has HDMI, DVI-D and DisplayPort outputs that let you connect to multiple monitors for advanced gameplay.
So this card actually worked with zero conflicts. My previous card was an AMD R9 380. I purchased the AMD RX560 and it rebooted and froze at random. The NVIDIA 1660 Super has zero random reboots or freezes and is much faster. Absolutely recommend this card!Jul 10, 2020 16:17
This small form factor 1660super is a champ. I use it for mining ETHEREUM and for 76 watts it hashes 31.81 all day long. It runs cool with the large single fan. This card has to have the memory underclocked by -502 in order to hash this high. I guess it stabilized and tightened the memory timings. 4month ROIApr 04, 2021 10:23
The video card is of excellent quality has a beautiful heatsink with a unique fan of large dimensions and therefore very quiet! being an 1660 @ 6gb ram it works flawlessly on high settings with Cyberpunk2007 and Mortal Kombat 11
It doesn't come with a cd for drivers or updates but you can download from Nvidia's Geforce website. I've had for just 2 months now and no complaints as it works perfectly almost like 2080 card.Dec 21, 2020 19:38
These are excellent GPUs for mining - I am able to get 31.85MH/s @ 74W power on these cards. Very efficient for mining for now and in the future post EIP1559. A 6 x PNY 1660 Super is taking a total of 486W at the wall.Mar 19, 2021 20:07
1660 super is a very good card but the price is insane, I remember this being around $200 or less before 2021 but it’s good for 1080p gaming and size of gpu very small so it will fit almost any case which is goodSep 03, 2021 15:42
Is a decent card for playing at 1080p at close to 60 fps on high settings. This particular card is loud and doesn't cool very well out of the box. Expect gam noise and rattling noises under load. After insulating the plastic shroud with foam tape and applying some better thermal paste, it works much better.Sep 16, 2021 12:33
Pretty good graphics card for the money, especially right now with the current shortage of gpus. I mainly play Call of Duty: Warzone and consistently get 144+ fps on high settings. If you're looking to play on a 1080p monitor, this card isn't bad.Mar 19, 2021 17:22
I put this card into a gaming system, and I'm running benchmarks in Direct-X 9, 10, 11, 12 at around 90% Worldwide using Passmark benching software. I am using EVGA's OC software with no problems at all. Low temps accelerated high-end graphics @ 3840 X 2160, Antialiasing X 4, Anisotropic X 16. Excellent card!Aug 15, 2020 14:21

Lets say you entertained doing something that rhymes with lining brypto, this card if set to say an arbitrar group of numbers such as oh i don't know, 200/2400/165w might theoretically get 30.5mh on an Edgar Allen Poe title at 59c provided proper airflow..... or so ive been toldOct 22, 2021 16:04
This RTX 3060 Ti is comparable to a RTX 2080. The upgrade is leaps and bounds for the retail price. Yes, retail price. Thank you bestbuy.Oct 13, 2021 11:09
Finally was able to get one and of course there's no disappointment. Last missing piece I needed for my pc and am now able run a smooth 150+ fps!Oct 03, 2021 10:28
Just SO excited to actually get a GPU!! It is working great. SO happy BB does the drops so people can actually “beat the bots”!!Oct 03, 2021 09:07
No issues with installing the card and its drivers. Runs any games I've been playing so far without any issues. RGB is a little lacking and doesn't sync with MSI's RGB software (mobo is MSI) from what I've seen, so I'm just using it to monitor heat temps based on its color. I like that the fans don't run 24/7 when the computer is on.Nov 05, 2021 20:04
Feels on the cheaper side build quality-wise, but the fact that you can get for this price in this market makes it a solid choice. Runs a little warm but performs wellOct 16, 2021 19:52
Overall its a nice card but I wish the backplate was not plastic. Games run pretty well and the fans seem pretty quiet. I really wish the blue light can be turned off or changed to a different color to match my PC lookOct 27, 2021 22:13
I don't know if I'll get bites have this Heineken memory which used to be very bad in the GPU scene but as of late lately it seems like this is a great overclocker for AAA games such as call of duty and VR as well pick this up at MSRP you won't go around although the extra AIB tax it's well worth it especially with the 3 years I believe warrantyOct 26, 2021 06:11
Game seamlessly with this GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER OC graphics card. The DisplayPort and HDMI ports allow connection to multiple displays for an immersive gaming experience, while the 6GB of GDDR6 RAM deliver smooth performance. This GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER OC graphics card has a WINDFORCE 2X cooling system for effective heat management.
I bought this item for my gaming PC, which I wanted to keep under a budget of $1000. I mainly play Counter-Strike GO and this has been an absolute delight for money spent! I was able to build my pc with amazing specs and really impressed with the performance.
Great buy!Dec 07, 2020 10:42
Great value for the performance. Only gtx card that has raytracing. And its ddr6 so its up to date with the rtx line. Runs games like a champ on 1080p with competitive settings. Handles 2k and 4k gaming with fps drop of course. But it will do 2k and 4k gaming. Getting around 40-60 fps in 2k and 4k settings. 90-110fps on 1080p settings. The Gpu fits perfectly in my micro atx build case. Stays very cool and I am running it on my ryzen 9 3900x.
For reference, it was on my i9 9900k and it ran fast and cool.
Also bought it open box so saved a bit more gbacks.
Overall very satisfied with this purchase.Dec 13, 2020 11:42
Happy with it running games like young shroud lets gooooSep 26, 2020 03:12
I use it on my kids pc and the fan barely turns on when playing video games.Sep 25, 2020 23:16
Good.......................................................................................!Aug 14, 2020 16:51
Purchased graphics card Open Box, was to be used in a client system - card was clearly not checked properly by best buy: displays artifacts at 2D clocks (windows desktop, shows black squares all over the place)
Since i didn't get a chance to check within return window, so will need to contact MFG for RMA.Jul 25, 2021 00:46
I didn't break the card when trying to install it, so it at least is pretty durable. The backplate is nice. The fans barely turn on even playing Doom or Mount and Blade Bannerlord. They rev when I start a game but then shut off. It idles at 47C for me and goes to about 60 max. I use a 1080p 60 Hz monitor so my goal was to get a card that could reliably manage that performance and match up without a bottleneck with a Ryzen 3. I work from home so I wanted a low power draw when it's on very low use. It works.Dec 06, 2020 23:05
Great performance at a great value. Used on my first gaming PC build and very satisfied.Apr 23, 2021 12:33
Introducing GeForce RTX™ 3060 GAMING OC 12G graphics cards, featuring the all-new NVIDIA Ampere architecture. Engineered to deliver the ultimate 1440p gaming experience, the GeForce RTX™ 3060 GAMING OC 12G powers a new generation of gaming with vivid visuals and elevated experiences.
I've had this card for a full 24 hours now. I've been waiting for Best Buy drops since launch to get my hands on a 6800xt or a 3080, but this little gem was what I got lucky with for now. I'll trade up once the opportunity presents itself. Here's my take.
Rock solid 1080p/1440p gaming. I've gone from an XFX RX570 > XFX RX580 > Gigabyte RTX 3060 OC. In this current climate I paid (from best buy) $360 for the 570, $450 for the 580, and $480 for this 3060. From that standpoint It's an outstanding deal for this card considering what people are selling these for online. In a normal world, still overpriced. IMO, this card performs extremely well. I've been throwing all my games at it at 1440p max settings and haven't dipped below 60 fps. (though i know some games certainly will) My monitors tap out at 144hz so that's the ceiling I've set for all games.
Outside of stress testing (64c tops), it hasn't gone above 59c gaming. Stays super cool (idle at 33c) and since my 580 was a furnace that loved to stay at 79c gaming; my CPU temps have also now dropped 5c during gaming and idle is down to 28c.
ONLY complaint: You can get a 3060TI for closer to $400 while this is a full $80 above that and performs worse, I have no cons to complain about. This is a powerhouse. It's the runt of the 30 series family but an outstanding card nonetheless.
If you can, buy it. Don't second guess because by the time you do, it's out of stock :)May 29, 2021 11:42
Picked this out on a whim when Best Buy had a drop. Had it for a few weeks now and it’s holding strong. Temps are low, and coming from a 1050ti this things is awesome. I can play everything on ultra settings. Obviously certain games are going to have frame low FPS. But I can get 75-90 FPS on warzone, and with dlss on I get 144. Nvidia filters make the game look even better. It was an easy installation as well. Enjoy the rgb on the card too. Only issue I’ve found is it maxes out the clock on Cold War. But I think that was my mistake. I was messing around with the settings and I’ll have to troubleshoot thatMay 14, 2021 15:36
It looks big, runs cool, has a bit of RGB and slays 1440p gaming. Great card for the price!May 27, 2021 16:18
Excellent graphics card. It's more expensive than the regulars 3060, I would say it's not worth at all the extra price, but in these days is better than nothing. Go for it.May 27, 2021 13:18
great card, plays practically whatever you want at full ultra 100+fps, (minus cyberpunk with psyco rtx on and others) good heat sink so fans pretty much never go 100%, i did upgrade from literally tech trash but i say it’s a mighty fine cardApr 28, 2021 02:13
I’m new to PC gaming so I can’t really give a detailed opinion but for a starter GPU this worked really well for me. I’ve eventually upgraded, but I had few problems with this, except it took a while for it to accept my TV. If you’re working with a monitor though, it had no issues with my monitor.
It ran smooth, and it’s all you really need if you’re not trying to be super fancy HD.Aug 06, 2021 09:44
Great product but thermals do suffer due to poor quality thermal pads. With the money you spend on this I wouldn't have minded paying an extra $10 for the manufacture to put higher quality thermal pads. They are easy to replace yourself though, it's just a hassle.Oct 07, 2021 12:47
Yo this thing is beautiful. Packaging is on point. When you take it out the box, you are just in awe.Nov 06, 2021 01:05
GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3060 EAGLE OC 12G Graphics Card, 2x WINDFORCE Fans, 12GB 192-bit GDDR6, GV-N3060EAGLE OC-12GD Video Card
Soild card a bit pricey for a 3060, but id take it over scalper prices any day.Jun 11, 2021 18:28
Good graphics card, especially if you like to make your own money and be successfully driven to making more digital moneySep 30, 2021 16:12
Great card, but dont like the looks. Otherwise simply to install and use.Jun 18, 2021 16:52
Decent card. I like the form factor & simple aestheticJul 18, 2021 15:51
Great entry level graphics card. Able to play 1080p games with no issues.Jun 21, 2021 05:22
This is a great little card. It runs games great at 1080p and fits in my smaller case. Just wish it was white, but beggers can't be choosers amiright?Jun 27, 2021 23:21
Great quality and great performance in my favorite games. I had no problems running any gameJun 09, 2021 10:26
Rise to the Top with GIGABYTE RTX 3080 GAMING OC Graphics Cards. Powered by NVIDIA's 2nd gen RTX architecture and refined with GIGABYTE's WINDFORCE cooling technology, the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3080 GAMING OC 10G brings stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications with its enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores, and superfast G6X memory.
Although the price seems to fluctuate a lot (got it $999 a month ago but now its $1030), but at least it's not as bad as MSI. Performance is great and hopefully will last me years to come. Keep on trying you guys!Nov 02, 2021 09:05
Works good - definitely needed to update the nvidia drivers before card installation. It is certainly louder than my 3070, but the fans seem to be doing their job. I don't tweak, overclock, or mine, so it's fine for standard gaming at 1440p.Nov 05, 2021 16:00
Gigabyte cards aren’t the best IMO, but at least it’s not MSI.Oct 21, 2021 10:52
This card is a beast but consumes lots of power. The price is not bad either.Oct 11, 2021 07:28
Was lucky enough to receive this card. I am satisifed with the performance while gaming.Aug 24, 2021 12:38
Get the ultimate gaming performance with GIGABYTE RTX 3080 GAMING OC Graphics Cards. Powered by NVIDIA's 2nd gen RTX architecture and refined with GIGABYTE's WINDFORCE cooling technology, the GIGABYTE GeForce RTX 3080 GAMING OC 10G brings stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications with its enhanced RT Cores and Tensor Cores, and superfast G6X memory.
Goes without saying it was a nightmare being able to actually buy this GPU - Took almost a month to actually get lucky enough to make it through checkout.
Performance for both traditional and VR using Oculus Rift S is really awesome. Consistently get 100+ FPS with most games on a 120Hz display.
Only complaint it is super long, and impacts 3 HDD slots in my system. Not the end of the world, but would prefer it to be about an inch shorter. But it keeps cool, and the fans aren't loud, so clearly optimized design for cooling.Jan 14, 2021 17:13
I really wanted to love this 3080, and don't get me wrong the performance is great. The cooler design looks cool, is quiet, and effective. The RBG on the outside is a nice touch without being too flashy. But, Gigabyte has a pretty serious issue when it comes to this specific card. The thermal pads on the memory were defective casing the card to overheat and thermal throttle. Under load, memory temps would spike to 110 C causing the card to slow down. The card also doesn't come with any thermal pads between the back of the PCB and the backplate, so the back plate is basically useless outside of looks. After discovering the thermal issues, I replaced the thermal pads on the memory and added thermal pads to the back and saw significant performance improvement. This was only about a $20 fix, but on an $800 GPU, I would expect better from the factory.
Here's the jist: The 3080 is a beast of a card if you're lucky enough to get one, but if you have the choice, I'd go with a different variant and save yourself some hassle.Feb 16, 2021 23:44
The hype is real. The 3080 is by far the most powerful card I've ever owned. Its VERY large though so take that into consideration if you have a smaller case. I have a full size keyboard with a numpad and it's nearly the same size lol (see pics). But if you have the money, a case to fit it in, at least a 750w power supply and a decent cpu (i would recommend at least a 5800x, 5900x or 5950x) to pair it with, then you're going to be enjoying the most premium of premium gaming experiences.Feb 05, 2021 15:48
Great graphics card , totally worth the money !!!!Jun 11, 2021 17:28
Works Great, cooling is a
Bit inconsistent though. If you have a smaller case beware because this card is very long. I could not mount my 280mm Corsair cooler in front with this card. Over all the the card does everything. I have not ran into any issues, nor have I tried over clocking it. Don’t forget to register it on gigabytes site to get up to 4 years of warranty.Oct 28, 2020 15:39
This card stays under 70 degrees while overclocked for at +150 MHz core and +350 MHz memory. Pretty impressive, if you ask me. I do have a rather aggressive fan curve, but the fans are quiet, so it's the best of both worlds.Jun 11, 2021 07:53
Very powerful card with massive heatsink but bad thermal pads, would highly recommend changing them out and adding some more to the back to improve memory temps especially if you bought one for mining. 3mm on back and 2mm inside where the mem chips are, didn’t bother replacing the other thermal pads for vrms etc and still works fine.Jul 04, 2021 12:27
Performs well, knocking down 1 star due to quality control. Upon opening I couldn't insert gpu power on one of the ports. 2 of the pins were bent upwards inside one of the housings. I was able to use a screwdriver and nudge them back to the center. Not terribly pleased with that but the card is covered by a 4yr manufacturer warranty if registered within 30 days of purchase. Hoping I don't run into any other issues with it though.Jan 19, 2021 07:46
Make your entire PC experience faster with the new NVIDIA GeForce GT 710 by PNY dedicated graphics card. Now, you can enjoy up to 10x better performance than integrated graphics in all your PC multimedia applications.
Needed something better then my old GT210 it does what it needs to for the price. But if your looking to game with this spend alittle more and get a really good graphics card.Aug 08, 2019 21:48
Was looking for a little upgrade on my older system.
It had built in AMD video and my monitor is Dvi. I read conflicting info as to whether it would be plug and play or if I'd have to do some setting changes before installing. Went ahead with plug and play. On first boot after install it took a little longer than normal, then booted to Windows 10. A few minutes later, got a message that there was a software update to download and install. Did that and rebooted
Working fine. I do some photoshopping, watch some videos, and play a few games on the computer and it does seem to perform a little better.
An inexpensive upgrade to get a little more life out of what started as an HP 500-217c and has since has hard drive, memory, and case upgrades.Sep 25, 2020 19:48
Very poor performance
my old (7 years) gigabyte with only 1 mb of memory works a lot than this piece of garbageDec 27, 2020 11:26
My HP Pro 6200 was struggling with 4k Youtube content using the integrated graphics (Intel HD Graphics 2000). My upgrade options are somewhat limited due to the 240W power supply (max 30w at the PCIe port) and the small form factor case (requiring a low profile card).
This card has made a huge improvement and seemed to speed up overall performance a bit. Installation was simple. It would've been nice if they included a tool to help switch to the low-profile bracket, but not a huge deal. Drivers/NVIDIA control panel installed no problem. Being a WDDM 2.0-compatible GPU, GPU utilization now shows up in the Windows 10 task manager as well.Aug 24, 2019 10:11
This GPU card gave new life to my HP 8200 Elite SFF with i7-2600. My son especially likes to play World of Warships and other fun non triple game titles at the moment and this card fits the bill. The computer is hooked up to main tv in living room and it doubles as a media center. Gonna get another one for my Dell Inspiron desktop midtower sized. That brings up another thing I like about this card. It comes with the brackets for the small form factor computers and already has the bracket for your full/midtower desktop computers.Aug 04, 2021 22:53
This works great for minesweeper. I am currently looking to become pro one day and this enables me to turn on my monitor on non-APU AMD processors. Thank you. To those of you in the future, this was written during the great GPU crisis of 2021 and desperate times calls for desperate measures. This GPU works and served it’s purpose.Sep 27, 2021 10:51
The Pny - Verto Nvidia Geforce Gt 710 2gb Ddr3 Pci Express 2.0 Graphics Card is an excellent graphics card for my Windows 10 Dell computer. It provided me with terrific graphics and a very clear image. I use it a great deal in online gaming and surfing the web. No distortions or problems at all.Dec 02, 2016 22:32
This works as anticipated. I was trying to watch a YouTube video and my APU was at 100% use and not even playing the video back, so I decided to look into a lower end graphics card as I do not need to play all the fanciest new games or anything like that. So after about ONE WHOLE minute of pain staking research I found this. It was basically this model or a 1GB version that my local best buy had in stock, I went with the 2GB version just cause the price difference seemed too low not to. Supposedly it supports 3 displays I have not tested that I just have it running to a 32" hdtv as of right now. All my content now loads with no studder and my APU usage is now down to 20-ish% ("ish" definition: generally around this number but does fluctuate, never going above 40% under a normal work load). Also on a side note I am able to play Smite at max settings in 1080P so that's fun lol.Dec 08, 2017 16:57
