Excellent Value 05/08/2009
This card is powerful, quiet, and just plain looks good. While running my games I have not heard the fan hit high rpm once. With vsync enabled in games this card runs at about 50 percent (with the exception of crysis). All of my games are set to high and run at 1680x1050. It survived the burn in period while running gpu intensive programs 24/7.
None really. You have to be careful that it doesn't block any of your sata ports, but if that happens you can always plug it into another 16x slot.
Some benchmarks. Some of these may not be true to the card's actual performance because I enable vertical synchronization to reduce any artifacts and scan lines.
