Summary: I bought this card to replace my "comparable" NVIDIA GTX260. By most standards these cards are supposedly equal. In my opinion, there is no comparison. After putting this card in, there was a noticeable increase in my performance running games at top settings. DragonAge 2 would not run in DX11 mode without a terrible drop in FPS on my old card, where as the drop with this card was hardly noticeable. It's a little loud during POST, but runs quietly after that.
Summary: Can someone tell me if the video card you receive is the same in the picture. I ordered a video card from Amazon a while back and didn't get the one in the picture as advertised. I have this video card and am looking for a second one to use in a crossfire configuration. It is an excellent video card,over clocks well. Thank's.
Summary: I've set up my new desktop with this awesome graphics card and it didn't disappoint me. It's only a week since I have it & I've watched videos, movies and video detailing is excellent. I'd certainly recommend this to anyone who is looking for an excellent / high-end graphics card for watching blu-ray or gaming.
