Is Gigabyte a reliable brand for Graphics Cards?

Specifically this one.

I have the Gigabyte 680 OC Windforce. About 9-10 months now and no issues. Runs cool and quiet, doing its job well......*knock on wood*. As far as I know the 680 and the 770 are the exact same chip, so you'll probably experience similar.

One thing, going too much beyond the stock OC is difficult - and I have heard numerous other reports similar to mine. Giving it a further small overclock works perfectly fine, and heat is never the issue, it's just that getting into bigger OC's makes the card just becomes unstable. Temps and voltage are fine; just the chip does not liking being OC'ed too much. It's a small issue, as there is hardly any need to OC these cards at this point anyway.

I've had mine for just over a year, a 670. It's been perfect so far.

as far as nvidia cards go, all brands are the same physically, unless they go above and beyond basic requirements.

nvidia ensures that each manufacturer meets the same basic specs and meets the same quality requirements. manufacturers can use higher quality parts, but aren't allowed to use lesser.

unless a particular manufacturer used higher quality parts, the only difference between manufacturers is price and warranty.

I've got a Gigabyte card, but I can't overclock it far enough to make a visible difference in games. This is typical for a Gigabyte card, and the trade-off is that it runs a bit cooler than other cards.

Had a 650 video card made by Gigabyte in my old computer and was happy with it, never had any problems with it. Also motherboard in old computer was made by them too and it worked fine with no trouble at all.

I have a 460 but it isn't that great. Experienced a few episodes of artifacting (spelling?) ever since I first got it in 2010. I anticipate an upgrade to EVGA soontimes.
