Summary: I'm using two of these in SLI with an Intel Z87 motherboard. No issues whatsoever in any benchmark or game I have tried thus far. Skyrim runs beautifully. No driver or SLI issues at all. Better than a single GTX 780 in most applications.
Summary: First off, I bought this card to replace an HD 5770 which just wasn't cutting it running new games on max settings with playable fps. I had to go with this card instead of an R9 280x because just before I bought it, my motherboard failed and I had some budget problems. It is not as fast as a 280x, of course, but it is over $100 cheaper and better than the R9 270x AND it came with Assassins Creed Black Flag and Splinter Cell blacklist (holiday Bundle on newegg), which...
Summary: Pros: On sale for $240! Factory overclocked Dual fan design 7.68" card length make it easy to fit in cramped cases CD includes overclocking software Holiday Bundle includes 2 free games Came with a sticker :) Cons: Speedfan doesn't register the GPU fan, need to use included software Is not a mainstream manufacturer (yet) Orange color scheme may clash with your PC if your case has a plastic window Other Thoughts: Plenty of power for my 1680x1050 monitor.
Summary: This thing ranks #9 in most video card charts as of today and is a fantastic budget card for those that would like to stick with Nvidia and need to upgrade from a 4 or 5 series card. It has more than enough memory for taxing games and runs pretty cool with it's stock reference blower. The blower does get a bit loud as most stock blowers do when you're playing more intensive games, but is inaudible otherwise.
Summary: Pleased with the performance of this card. Purrs like a kitten; actually much quieter. For the price, it was well worth the investment. Surprised to see that it required 4 power leads from the power supply!
Summary: I upgraded from a Zotac GTX 560. I have played several of the latest games at 1920x1080 with all settings maxed and this thing was as smooth as butter. It seems quieter and cooler that the 560 as well.
