Summary: I needed a decent card that would fit in my smaller case and Asus came through. According to some benchmarks I have looked at, this slightly outperforms the GTX 580. Great news. The fan is very quiet at idle and has a very clean sound even at high speed. No rattling or grinding.
Fantastic small form-factor GPU, well worth the price

Summary: Unbelievable power in a small package! It runs well with Linux and Windows, providing raw power to those applications which require intensive GPU resources (BOINC, etc.). I do not play "modern" games, so I cannot speak to its effectiveness in that area; however, for GPU processing, it works...
Summary: Great card, I bought this to replace a GTS 250 for Planetside 2. I get solid 60fps now and couldn't be happier. FWIW, I'm also running an i7 930 (an older i7) which keeps up just fine. Planetside had some CPU issues before but they've finally worked them out and the gameplay is smooth as butter now.
Summary: This card is so little, yet so powerfull it can match or surpass the power of a GTX 770 if you know how to push it when overclocking. I bought this from amazon warehouse deals, labeled as used in good condition, and it is. In fact, it was smelling as new.
Summary: Installed on a P8Z77-I Deluxe/WD motherboard inside a Silverstone SG-05 case with a Silverstone ST45SF-G PSU. The height of the video card made installing the 8-pin power connector from the PSU very, very tight.
