Summary: Great frame rates at very high to high settings in most recent games. I would get higher fps but I'm sure im held back by only having a dual core (a gateway dx-480 that i got at a garage sale.) It is very quiet and is always cool. Issue with the heatsink shroud having gaps all along it that let the heated air from the card recycle back into case, but since the card never breaks 60C even under high load inside a crappy garage sale box with only a single fan this hasn't...
Pros: Quiet, stays very cool under high load.
Cons: the shroud around the heatsink has large gaps so hot air blows/leaks into the case instead of going out.
Summary: I bought one of these about a month ago to add to my build running a 4770K z4.4Ghz. I was planning some casual gaming... Honestly, this card alone is more than enough to play all games, including intensive FPS, at high fps but maybe not on Ultra settings. But I could easily run BF3 at 80-110 fps on medium settings, on high it would go down a bit, but was still playable for single player missions. The card is nearly silent even under load, which is surprising.
Pros: Relatively good performance/price ratio, Asus quality, Already overclocked (even though it's a bit on the safe side), Nearly silent even under load
Summary: Bought this card to take the rendering load off my CPU for doing CAD work. Packs way more punch than a similarly priced workstation graphics card. Very happy with it so far, and every other Asus product I own.
Pros: 2 DVI ports for multiple displays, quiet, powerful, and more than exceeds all my CAD requirements, for less $$ than a workstation graphics card. Well worth it.
Cons: Installation wasn't as according to the manual... plugged it in and lost all my display capabilities, even on motherboard. Inserted driver disc and everything worked out smooth. Got me worried for a couple minutes though.
Summary: Price-performance-wise, you couldn't beat this offer. Particularly warrant mentioning is its great thermal design. I stress-tested the graphic card with Furmark for an hour. Under full load, the temperature of the card never exceeded 60 degrees Celsius, with the two fans only spinning at 20% of its full speed. Thus, the graphic card really ran very quietly.
Pros: Great mid-range graphic card, Boost clock, Efficient cooling, Quiet
