Summary: This Graphics card is surprisingly great, and it can run games like Skyrim with no problem at all. For the price, and performance, you'll save quite a bit of money. It is very quiet, and you can barely hear it even at its max fan speed. The installation is very easy, and the Catalyst control center can download the drivers for you. I would dual video cards if my motherboard would allow me to.
Summary: I play Skyrim on ultra settings with all mods installed from the Skyrim Beautification project and it still runs beautifully. I get 55-60 fps consistently on bf3, and 65+ on Borderlands 2. It stays very cool and I never hear it at all.
Summary: Bought this card for my new pc build and couldn't be happier. Runs cool and quiet, aces high runs 59 fps at 1680x1050 with Max settings and high res textures. The price , fast shipping and great product made this a steal.
Summary: Does not disappoint at all. Much cooler than a HD 4850 which I upgraded from. If I had another slot I'd buy another and go crossifire. I don't know why though because this is basically all you need. I can max out everything except Crysis 3 which I put on High and medium AA. I get 25-45 fps when coupled with SSD. Definitely playable. Other games frame rates are ridiculously high.
Summary: I use this card for scrypt mining. If I have cgminer set to run this card at intensity 14, I can pull around 250kh/s. At intensity 19, the rest of my computer lags HARD but hashrate jumps to around 340-350kh/s. Card stays VERY cool compared to my old card (ATI radeon HD 6750). Never gets above approximately 70 degrees celsius, even under high stress and full load.
Summary: I got this graphics card for use in a computer with these specs: - amd athlon ii x3 445 processor running @3.1 ghz - 10gb ram - 1tb 7200rpm seagate hard drive - msi 760gm-e51 mobo with pcie x16 2.0 - anchor 450w power supply When I got the graphics card I was so excited to put it in my computer, so I just tore off the packaging and plugged it in (without reading system requirements) and then when i turned my computer on it crashed right away.
