Summary: This was an upgrade to a Gigabyte Windforce 2 GTX 650 Ti 2 GB OC card. That card in itself was great, but wouldn't play games to the caliber I wanted. I had built the PC for a customer who wanted an all-around affordable gaming rig, but after about 6 months, wanted to upgrade, so it went from an i5-3470 to an i7-3770k and a GTX 650 Ti to a GTX 670! Quite a jump. We are probably familiar with the GeForce GTX 670 card.
Summary: Got this for my son. He likes to game but did not want to spend $1000 for a video card. It was a sweet spot for price and performance. Allowing tweaking to configure it best on the games he plays were a big plus. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a mid range card.
Summary: I would first of all like to mention that I was considering this card against the GTX 770 and the AMD HD7970. Both of the other options are the latest generation video cards, though with some careful research I found that this video card was actually keeping up to it's competition in every aspect. This video card has been bench-marked by a lot of websites and has received outstanding scores compared to the next generation video cards.
Summary: This GPU is huge! The quality of the materials is awesome (it looks you could use this board as a hammer and it would still work!). The ASUS software for overclocking is also pretty easy to use.

Summary: Review for: ASUS GTX670 670-DC2-2GD5 (with Direct Cool II Card Cooler) This card is very well reviewed by the silent/quiet PC community. It is a great VALUE in NEAR SILENT HIGH-END video cards. I got a lemon card my first time with a tiny clicky noise in one of the fans so I returned it, so listen closely soon after getting it for an easy exchange.
Summary: This is an excellent product from Asus. Fairly easy to overclock through the easy to use GUI. Very good performance on games like Batman: Arkham Asylum. I bought the graphics card to be able to use it mainly for 3d modeling softwares and its performing quite well on all fronts. Thanks.
