5 out of 5 eggs

Comments: This card is not made for games. It's made for 3D CAD and 3d animation.

So please don't buy this card if your intentions are to use it as a gaming card.

5 out of 5 eggsNice but ...

Comments: I just got this card ... and it got here on time... however the installation cd was cracked when I got it. Was it shipping or newegg? Who knows....

Anyways, the card performs well but because it requires so much power, and generates heat, getting a cooler may be a good idea. Doom 3 runs at High Qual, with all advanced settings on, and 4x antiA. That's good but once it heats up, its locks up.
