Summary: I waited for quite a while to recive this older card. The discription clearly said on amazon "new in box". I was amazed to see that the clear round circle tape was missing from the front tab of the box. No matter I opened it anyway. Thats when I knew somthing was seriously wrong.
Summary: This is still a pretty good video card, I bought it a year ago as a second card for my latest build. The cooler is especially nice, always kept the temps down in the 30s idle and mid 40s during full load.
Summary: Have been using this video card for a year now, has easily digested every game i've thrown at it with max graphics settings at 1080p resolution, almost never dropping below 60fps. Im a casual gamer, Ive been playing civilization V, Dishonoured, Fallout New Vegas, Diablo 3, Borderlands 2.
Summary: Pros: Runs good and cool. Runs Counter Strike: Source on 2560x1600 for me at 550-950fps depending on map and players in the server. All my games are on 2560x1600 and I keep my settings rather high on all of them. No problem running bf3 at all.
Summary: I bought this Video card to replace the Nvidia card that came with my Dell computer. The main reason for the change was to be able to connect 4 monitors. I have 2 monitors connected directly to the video card via DVI and the other 2 connected with a Active mini display port to DVI adapter.
Summary: I have been looking for a major overhaul for my gpu (old gpu was an hd 5670 which I paid $90 for) but I didnt want to spend some ridiculous amount of money (over $350) just for a graphics card and I found this for just a dollar short of $200 and it arrived a day earlier than the delivery estimate...
