Summary: I purchased this unit to upgrade from an nVidia GeForce GT 640 with 2GB of GDDR3. I was surprised at the performance increase. However, I was not pleased with the image quality of the Radeon.
Pros: 1.) Good performance. 2.) Fairly power efficient. 3.) Has 640 stream processors. 4.) Good quality construction. 5.) Uses GDDR5. 6.) Crossfire capable. 6.) Fairly quiet.
Cons: 1.) Blurry anti-aliasing in comparison to nVidia. 2.) Color and contrast levels not quite as good as nVidia. 3.) A little higher priced than it should be for its class. 4.) Slightly confusing driver release and download methods. 5.) Redundant and weird control center.
Summary: Got a $99 white box edition of this on black friday so it was a pretty good deal ..very very loud at stock settings i used msi afterburner to set a quieter fan curve and all is well also overclocked to 1100/1250 no problem and im playing bf3 at 1080p with all settings maxed out 40-50fps and temps...
