Summary: This is a great mid-high-end card for the money. The heat pipe configuration lets it run cool and it's capable of receiving the firmware to unlock the shaders. Be careful, though, as it does not have a secondary BIOS in the event the firmware does not work. If the firmware upgrade fails, you will need a second video card to restore the firmware to this one. Running 5760x1080 (Eyefinity) of the Battlefield 3 beta I receive only 20-25 FPS.
