Summary: Bought two of these in January 2012, and installed them in a SLI configuration. Just recently (March 2013) upgraded so its worth going back and relaying my experience with these: I did some gaming (Planetside 2, World of Tanks) which the cards did great at, but they spent most of each day running BOINC projects. So, the cards were loaded at almost 100% for a good portion of every day.
Made great addition to my sons gaming computer build!

Summary: After searching for a graphics card for my new Gaming Rig I stumble upon this one and I have to say that i was thrilled with the results. First off I have been using this card for about a month and a half and have loved it. I've played games like all the Mass Effect games, Dishonored, TF2, Chivalry, Natural Selection 2 maxed out without a problem. Overall a great card as long if you plan to just game it also comes with an adapter (DVI to VGA).
Summary: Man I love this card. Great deal as well. For only $215 (with rebate) its a steal. Bf3 alone is $50 for I only really paid $165! The dual fans are amazing and keep the card at a low temperature. This was one reason I went with a dual fanned card instead of a single. It runs around 33C idle and under load around 68C. Not bad. Easy to over clock even though thats not my thing. Not overclocked it runs BF3 (1920x1080) on high like nothing.
