Summary: I got this card to run more graphic (texture) intensive games- Rage among others. Reviews I read said essentially "this card can take anything you throw at it." I have found this to be true. I am running an AMD Phenom II x4 955 chip at 32 MHz (125w CPU) with 16 Gbs of Kingston & Corsair 800 MHz DDR3 SDRAM. A 2 TB WD Black hard drive with a 650 Watt Corsair power supply. A PassMark test gave this computer an average of 2.75 stars.
