Everyone hates on reference but I love the look of these, and the blower design works well for the air flow in this case. Both cards have been overclocked 200+ on the core and 400+ on memory.

Love this thing. Absolutely love it! I originally had a GT 740 and while it worked, I knew it wouldn't hold up over time. I changed it out to a XFX 280X and loved that too but I wanted to be pretty future proof and knew I had to get more. I ended up getting this after having Best Buy price match it at about 319. Traded in the 280X (Which was 219) and bought this after paying the difference. It is great. 9093 3DMark score on Fire Strike. Have dual monitor setup right now with another cord hooked up to my 55 inch for watching movies.

Went for the reference card because of its blower style cooling and its nice aesthetics. In love with the green GeForce GTX on the side of the card --- looks awesome from the side-panel. Oh and did I mention it's also a beast of a GPU --- 1080p 60+ FPS just about any game.

Great card, replace the stock thermal compound with Arctic MX-4, it will run 5 degrees cooler. I'm a computer repair tech, and this card has the highest build quality of anything I have ever felt.

Can be found cheap online, used, and is a good performer. Keeps paces with the RX 480. Reaches about 80c, due to the blower style cooler, however. Still, at 80c, I have yet to notice much sound.

Love the looks and the fact that it spits the hot air out if the case.

Overclocks well and never goes over 62C. Reference cooler does a great job and is very quiet. Very easy to mod as well.

This is a pretty great card, even for late 2016 titles. First video card I've dealt with in years, so I have no basis of comparison. However, BF1 on Vsync'd ultra doesn't quite max it at stock clocks, I guess it should hold me for a few years still. Reference, yes, but I can't hear it over my array of Rosewill case fans. Plus, I got it for free. That kinda pushes the value rating toward infinity.

Great when you buy for cheap used but a bit loud
