Summary: Before this card I had A Sapphire Raedon HD 7770, and it was just one constant problem after another. I never really liked AMD chips and I had a good reason. After dealing with that for about a year, I needed to upgrade to something that wasn't AMD and wasn't too pricy.
Summary: Got this card to replace a GeForce GTS 250 in a rig with a Core 2 Duo processor. Noticeable improvement in frame rate, lighting and detail with games like EVE Online and I got mine for $115 including shipping. This card still goes for $160 to $180 (new) when on sale.
Summary: This graphics card is amazing. It runs everything I want and no struggle at all. The only game the card seems to try and use its full default (not oc) is space engineers that's because it isn't optimized very well (the game) it was a sexy beast opening the huge box and getting this awesome graphics...
Summary: I think I have it working decently now, but out of the box the graphics drivers crashed repeatedly. I bought the card along with a ASUS motherboard thinking that there should be no compatibility issues and everything would just work. No such luck!
So quiet! Highly recommended not a single issue after over 6 months of heavy usage.

Summary: The fit and finish on this card is top notch. It is amazingly quiet - even if you manually turn the fans to 100% you can barely hear them. If you let them auto-adjust their speed they're cheaper than my power supply. I am impressed and will consider ASUS the next time I upgrade.

Summary: I didn't realize that Asus has such horrible support until I needed one. I am a big (was at this point) Asus supporter. Always had Asus motherboards and video cards in the past and would always recommend them to my friends, but not anymore.
