The days of buying a stock reference video card and not having other options is long past and Gigabyte is capitalizing on the aftermarket bonanza. Their Ultra Durable line of GPU's feature a 2oz copper PCB to decrease electrical resistance and decrease operating temperatures. Solid Capacitors to extend the life of the GPU and Tier 1 Samsung or Hynix memory for better overclocking. Combine all that with a great aftermarket fan factory installed and you have a lean mean overclocking machine.
