    Incredible Performance, Even Better Value

    I bought this card to replace dual 970 GPUs and it does not disappoint. Pros: - Dropdead great performance in the most demanding games at the highest resolutions including 5760 X 1080 (triple screens) and 3840 X 2160 (4K) - Does not break a sweat running my Oculus Rift - Looks high end with the Founder's Edition casing - Hot air blows outside back of case - Excellent value at $450 when you consider it outperforms even the might Titan X which costs more than twice as much - Five connectors - 3 year warranty Cons: - Overclocking has not gone well for me yet - Only four displays can be active simultaneously even though card has five connectors - Card is very long, make sure you have enough space in your case In summary, I cannot recommend this card enough, just go buy it!!!

    I had no plans to purchase this card, as I had planned to purchase a GTX 970 for my son. However, when this card was released, I decided to purchase it for my system and pass down my GTX 970 to my son. The card performs as expected. I had $325 in gift cards I had been saving for a while that eased the blow of the purchase price, so for me it was much more affordable. I recommend, if you have the budget, if not, the 970's, 980's and 980TI's are still decent cards that are more affordable now and still good cards for 1080P gaming. Lastly, I know the partner cards add many more features, such as factory overclocking and aftermarket coolers but I personally prefer the reference design cards built by NVIDIA.

    I haven't experienced anything like this in the gaming world before. Everything is running flawless. I try to tax this thing and give it a workout but it hasn't been able to break a sweat. All games on ultra resolution without a stutter. 60 fps+ at all times on every title I've thrown at it. For this price I feel this is a fantastic product that is definitely future proof for a good many years. Also relatively quiet and runs pretty cool temperature wise. 3D mark benchmarks but my modest rig in the top 10% with this card.

    An outstanding GPU. Dollar for dollar the best bang for the buck. Keep in mind that at this time. Only the GTX 1070 and 1080 can be used in SLI. No more entry or mid-range SLI builds. Buy this card, unless you have Terry Crews money ;)

    1440p Perfected!

    After having messed around with both the GTX 1070 and 1080 this card seems to be the best deal for the money by far! The price is reasonable and is justified by the performance. Absolute beast and beats out the GTX 980ti in many aspects. Perfect for 3 x 1080 monitors or 1 x 1440p monitor. But for 4k you are still going to want a 1080.

    Delighted to get my hands on the card

    Have been running a EVGA GTX 1060 SSC in the beast my son and I built last summer, wanted a GTX 1070 but had run into my budget wall around 2400. Thought I would wait a couple months then pop for the GTX 1070 and hand the GTX 1060 over to the kid for his box. If you have been following the market it has been nutz for close to a year with prices ridiculous. So, my purchase was put off till now. Have checked online occasionally to see if there might be a GTX 1070 at a reasonable price. Typically, by now the prices would have dipped but due to the demand it’s not happened. Two nights ago, saw that Best Buy had the GTX 1070 at my store at a good price, waited till morning to purchase and of course all gone. Found one at a store 60 miles away and now have it in my machine. Long winded way of saying that I APPRECIATE that Best Buy did not gouge its customers on the price (like other well-known sources have done). KUDOS to Best Buy for not marking up hundreds of dollars on the card. Was it worth a two-hour drive, you betcha. The card is smoking hot (performance that is), sips on the electric juice, and looks very nice behind the tempered glass on my Cooler Master case. Love the light (green) scheme on card edge, goes nicely with the build. Not a top end gamer but enjoy Cities Skylines and CIV 6 to pass the time and the GTX 1070 doesn’t even break a sweat running all settings at full tilt. My GTX 1060 did a great job with the games, but with a fire breathing beast of a machine it deserves a smokin’ hot card. It is the best card for the money for almost any gamer today, and when 4K 120hz arrives you can simply SLI two together and Rock On.
