5 out of 5 eggsWorks as advertised

Pros: Does exactly what it is supposed to. I can run everything I own completely maxed out.

I have not found the limit of this card.

Cons: Has yet to make me breakfast.

Other Thoughts: No Linux 3D drivers for this card yet. 2D works fine.

System Specs:
Phenom II 965 Black Edition
Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Ubuntu Linux 10.10

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well

Pros: Very quiet. Cannot hear fan when set 35% and below in Antec Solo case and idle temp is 50C (high idle clocks see cons). Runs SCII at ultra settings well. Fits in the Solo easily.
Overclocked it in CCC to GPU 850 / Memory 1200. SCII at ultra settings has the fan at 55% and temp at 55C. Heatsink looks good.

Cons: Idle clocks are too high. Sitting at GPU 250 / Memory 1000. From the web this is due to problems with Catalyst Control Center. Therefore using more electricity than it should. Hope this gets fixed.
