Summary: This graphics card is only slightly slower than an ATI 5770. The fan is actually quieter. Even though the card is longer, it fits better with the fan at the back of the card. With my old ATI 5770, it not only took up two slots, but the fan intake was mostly blocked by a PCI card two slots over.
Summary: I've owned this card for over a year and just bought a 2nd to SLI. Nothing bad I can say about it. I've run it hard without overclocking it and finally come to the point where I have to upgrade a bit to run all my graphics at max.
