Hi all

Anyone have experience with Gigabyte's second generation GTX 570? It's factory overclocked from 732MHz to 780 and uses 3 80mm fans. Same price as the stock card.

No reviews up on Newegg or anywhere else that I can find. I'm getting ready to order parts for a new build and was hoping for some feedback before I go for this one.

I read a review where they concluded that there actually is some truth to the Gigabyte marketing about "Ultra Durable" components. Apparently, they try to use higher quality components through what they call Gauntlet sorting, and that actually results in a more durable card.

This is in reference to their motherboards, but the same applies to the ultra durable components on their video cards:

Thanks very much for your responses. I plan on replacing the card in 2-3 years so I think MSI's superior cooling solution makes it the better choice for me at the moment.

The one from MSI keeps the GPU cooler, but the Gigabyte is quieter.
