I have to give it 5 stars because it delivers the promised performance, at remarkably stable and low temperatures (the stock cooler is excellent and a great reason to choose a reference design, it is extremely effective and very quiet for its performance - even under maximum load, temperatures are lower than any top-of-the-line nVidia card for generations). There are no multi-GPU rendering issues, as can affect multi-card configurations or multi-GPU on one card configurations. I don't aim that specifically at ATI, as nVidia has their fair share of driver difficulties as well, but in general a single GPU card is a safer bet for cutting edge games as any scaled multi-GPU setup will require a compatibility profile update in order to work correctly.

The card overclocks beautifully. I feel like I haven't even touched its maximum performance, yet at 1080p, there are no games that exceed my visual desires that would justify even higher settings. A 10% overclock over reference GTX 580 settings comes with a commensurate performance increase; it's my feeling, though I don't have any hard evidence, that these EVGA models are binned for superior performance, so the price premium isn't just for the stock moderate overclock, but for what I perceive as a higher likelihood of taking it further.

As mentioned, the temperatures are well-controlled. Absolutely no complaints there. The card is much quieter than the nVidia GTX 280 that it replaced, as well.

The problem comes in with the question of value. I don't want to go into a long tear about it, but you're just straight-up better off buying a

Okay, from the title of my review one would think this is going to be a negative review. NOT! I want to state right up front that this is a great video card. I won't go into an illustrious hardware review as there are plenty of computer hardware review websites out there that have conducted much better and more detailed analysis on the GTX580. So, I will just give you my opinions.

I just bought and installed three EVGA GTX580 Superclock (SC) cards as an upgrade from my "old" three EVGA GTX480 Superclock (SC) cards. The GTX480s have served me well and the only complaint I have is the fan noise they generate when under full load (when gaming or benchmarking). Here are the pros and cons that I have noted thus far when comparing the GTX580 SC to the GTX480 SC:


- Cost of the new GTX580 is reasonable; NVidia had to remain competitive and released the new GTX580 with a very reasonable sticker price while dropping the price of the "old" flagship GTX480 at the same time!

- Lower fan noise (5-7db difference under full load) when running a single or 2-way SLI configuration

- GTX580 runs cooler at idle and under full load (10C cooler at idle and about 5-7C cooler under full load)

- GTX580 performs better by 15-30% in every game and benchmark that I have ran (Crysis, Crysis Warhead, Metro 2033, Just Cause 2, Battlefield2, Alien VS Predator, 3DMark Vantage, Heaven 2.

In a room with an ambient temperature of about 75F, and in an Antec 1200 case (3 front 120mm intake, 2 rear 120mm exhaust, 1 top mounted 250mm exhaust) the GTX 580 idles (in P8, or low performance mode, which it idles in if you aren't playing a game) at 46C and an automatic fan speed around 40% (which is the minimum in the driver). At load (tested in Crysis, and a few other games) the card reaches about 68C, with a fan speed not much over 50%. It could be kept cooler, but anywhere above 50% and the GPU fan becomes audible over the case fans (in my setup, anyway). With the lifetime warranty of an EVGA card comes a few drawbacks. The first is the reference design of the card, that keeps temps around 5-10C warmer than the custom cooled designs of companies like MSI and Asus. This means less headroom for overclocking, although I have seen pretty competent overclocks on this particular card (I haven't tried myself, however) The second is the reference fan, which is louder than similar models from EVGA's competitors at the same speed. The up side to reference cooling is that air is pushed directly out the back of the card, instead of inside the case. This is a good feature for anyone without excellent ventilation in their case, because it takes the hot air away from the other components in the case.

Coming from an ATI HD4850 to the GTX 580 has been like night and day. All of my games run much faster (obviously), and unlike the HD 4850 (that got over 100 degrees Celcius at load, and idled at 70 Celcius) it doesn't sound like a vacuum cleaner as I'm trying to play games.

At $500, I assume that you know exactly what you are looking for in a card, or at least I would hope so.
