Excerpt: I got this card to replace my 9800gt with plans to go SLI in the future. Runs mos AAA title at max settings. Crysis 3 at 50-60fps with high settings @ 1080p. You won't find a better card at this price-performance ratio.
Excerpt: Excellent card for its price. with this I am able to run all my games at Maxed settings with 40+FPS. The fans on the heat-sink are very quiet at idle but when you ramp up the speed they are quite loud, just something to consider if you are planning a 'quiet pc'. overall, I am really happy with this card.
Summary: Bought this to run "Cliffs Of Dover". My PC had no installed graphics card, but plenty of memory and a good processor. This is a BIG card. I was worried about getting it in there, but it JUST fit. This card does require a separate power cord, but if your computer does not have an extra 5-pin power cord no worry, supplied is a cord that taps two of the motherboard powersources and runs them to a 5-pin.
