5 out of 5 eggsCrypto Mining

Pros: Works great for GPU mining of cryptocurrency. One of these will achieve between 300-350 KHash/sec when mining Scrypt, and between 500-1000 MHash/sec on SHA256. Not bad for the price. One of these generates about USD $1/day in Litecoin mining. Three of them = approximately USD$90-$100 per month (thus, ROI in ~seven months) at the current difficulty and on the pool I'm using. Your mileage may vary.

Cons: Hot and noisy. But that's to be expected. It raises the temperature of my room by 10 degrees fahrenheit.

Other Thoughts: It's a decent investment if you want an entry-level GPU for mining cryptocurrency.

5 out of 5 eggsQuality Card

Pros: Put this in last summer and it was a great upgrade from my old HD 4870. Runs games like TW: Shogun 2 on high settings no problem. I have no issues with online games like Rising Sun and Chivalry. I'm not a GPU overclocker so I cannot speak of it's abilities in that regard though from what I have heard it is solid in that as well.

Cons: None that I can speak of.

Other Thoughts: I am getting another one soon for Crossfire!

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Card

Pros: Been using this for several months with no hiccups. Runs cool and really quiet. It gets slightly louder while playing games but still very quiet and hardly noticeable. I have been a long standing supporter of VisionTek. These guys release very very stable cards. I still have older VisionTek cards given to friends and family that run perfectly even after several years.

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsVery Happy

Pros: Runs cool. I've never exceeded 70°, even when I ran stress tests.

To date, I've been able to play all of my games on maxed settings with decent frames (24-45fps), which has made me happy.

Price point felt very fair. Without breaking the rules and comparing against other brands, lets just say that the 1 fan worried me, but through experience I've found it is cooler than I expected.

Never had a crash or malfunction. Worked straight out of the box.

Great job Vision Tek.

Cons: A bit loud when pushed, but I play with headphones so I don't care one bit.

Other Thoughts: If this card got struck by lightning and died tomorrow, I would feel very comfortable purchasing it again. It has won my confidence.
