Summary: I was worried that I wouldn't have enough power to run this on my power supply. So far so good. I can max out crysis SDK and run the stock island level inside the editor at 40 FPS which looks great. It is a BIG card though. I guess they all are now. Hoping to get a motherboard that can sli another. Happy new year!
Summary: I did much research before buying a new graphics card. I settled for this card mainly due to the quiet and cool functioning. And as promised it is indeed cool and quiet. I hate loud cards; I am a quiet freak. My PC case has bad airflow and yet this GPU is 28 degrees at idle and 60 degrees full load and quiet as a GPU can be. I am very impressed. The only problem I had was fitting this into a Rosewill THOR V2 Gaming ATX Full Tower Computer Case.
Summary: this video card has a great heat sink and quiet fans doesnt run very hot either some downsides are it takes up space for 2 slots so i couldn't use my tvtuner in my pcie slot anymore and the heatsink was so long i had to order some right angle sata cables that doesnt mean this card deserves a negative review because of that also i havent tried overclocking yet but im sure itll do fine in that since it already stays so cool no regrets on getting this one ;'-)
Summary: This is an awesome card, I don't have Crossfire setup; just a single card and it scores a 7.8 ( 1.0-7.9) on the Windows Performance Index. Has overclocking features, 1 HDMI, 1 Display, and 2 DVI ports, one is analog. The fans are quiet, video driver needs to be installed from DVD or support website.
Summary: I can only tell you i got what i wanted. if you dont want to be disappointed, first see the benchmarks and youtube some videos abou this card running heavy video games. upgraded from a HD6770 to this one. this is a very quiet card btw.
