KFA2 GeForce GTX 580


Recommended Posts



I bought this graphics card for my new gaming computer, at a cost of £400. Here are my thoughts:


The card came in a nice, big, green box and was nicely packaged. The vinyl on the card was very nice also. I came from a system which was using an 8800GTX, so was assuming that this new card would be huge in comparison. However I was very surprised to see that the dimensions of the cards were virtually identical. The card was as easy to fit as all other graphics cards, and required 1x 8-pin and 1x 6-pin PCI-E power connectors. This was an issue for me, because I only have 6-pins. After a lot of scouring around, I managed to find one. I was very surprised to hear that the card is very silent, even under load it appears to be very quiet. It can handle all the games I have on maximum graphics, which includes Call of Duty: Black Ops, F.E.A.R 2, Dragon Age 2, and more. I have yet to try Crysis and Crysis 2 Demo.




Despite the steep price, it is an excellent card which I would highly recommend for any new gaming system.
