Summary: This GPU is amazing for beginners. It let's you play games like farcry 3 on ultra at 28 FPS (with a Anti alising off). I don't think you can get any better performance out of any other 150$ card
Summary: I am not interested in paying premiums for ultra-state-of-the-art computer hardware. Prices of even the best components frequently become decent deals after successors are introduced and touted. This is one (I paid $113).
