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.
