Cool and quite. Nice VRM heatsink for H2O. Needs BIOS update. Low VRAM.

Summary: Upgraded from the GTX 480, this thing performs probably only around 15% better which is to be expected, however it runs much much cooler and quieter than the 480. The triple fan system does a great job of cooling the card at a low noise level.
Summary: In my opinion Gigabyte video cards are the best you can buy. The heave PCB construction and the high quality components along with top customer support make Gigabyte the best you can buy. I bought this card to run in SLI with an existing Gigabyte card and the performance is outstanding.
Summary: I purchased this video card specifically to play Battlefield 3 on Ultra settings. I'm not running SLI but this video card is awesome. I can run any current game (Battlefield 3, Modern Warfare 3, Skyrim, Dirt 3) at 1080p resolution and at max settings with no hiccups.
Summary: This card is amazing! Running Battlefield 3 at 1080p res...smooth as butter. Make sure to put it in a mid or full tower case. It fit in my Cooler Master HAF 922 case without a problem. Note that it also comes with a 5 foot long mini-HDMI to HDMI cable. Yea, it's expensive, but worth every penny.
Summary: Very simple review. Its everything you can possibly need from a video card. Whats the point of reading another review? If you are looking for something like this, most likely you've already done your research and know what this baby can do!
