There is a 15 page long discussion on Nvidia forums on why not to buy 780ti cards from Gigabyte. Short story is many of us are experiencing the same issues and it has been going on for months now. Which means that Gigabyte is selling broken products of 780ti Ghz and OC edition. https://forums.geforce.com/default/...8toc-3gd-oc-bad-batch-/15/?offset=225#4267941 http://www.overclock.net/t/1461220/gigabyte-780-ti-ghz-edition-crashes The cards are unstable and are crashing in games and windows most of the time. There is also a lot of artifacting but that depends on the each gpu it self. For my case the artifacting only showed in 3DMark 11 and some games like the new Wolfenstein and of course there are also system freezing issues. Stay away from it! EDIT: Hot Hardware review conclusion for Gigabyte ( Thanks to FreaksMulder from Nvidia forums for finding this ) http://hothardware.com/Reviews/NVID...Gigabyte-And-MSI-Duke-It-Out/?page=12#!bnGntn What worries me here is that the reviewer didn't even had the guts to say that the card was broken. I mean If I buy a product I want it to run stable without any stability issues and would not satisfy my self until I get that product.
