Summary: So far this is an awesome graphics card. I bought this card because my Radeon HD 4870 was too loud, too hot, and constantly has issues with drivers. When I booted a game I had speckles or artifacts all over the screen. It was random.
Pros: Quiet, runs cool, AWESOME graphics and stable on max settings. I also love the open heat sink assembly because it will be a whole lot easier to simply spray off with canned air. My old card had a closed case over the heat sink that required complete diss assembly.
Cons: Power plug is on the side of the card instead of the end. My old card had the plug on the end which makes the inside of the case appear cleaner and improves air flow since most of the wiring is hid better. This doesn't reduce my rating but it would have been nice if it were located at the end of ...
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.
Summary: I bought this to work on a hackintosh, and it has not failed me. For video editing and gaming, I could not be anymore satisfied. It handles League of Legends, Assassin's Creed 4, and Batman Arkham origins on very high graphics, Msaa 2x, and Physix all maxed.
Summary: I still haven't come close to using the full potential of this card, but so far it has been great. I'm currently using it to play Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, and it's definitely meeting the standards.
