Runs Bad Company 2 at 1980 x 1020, 32xCSAA, 16xSAA, everything set to ultra high and a second monitor running.
Beats my friends 5870 running at 16xCSAA 16xSAA.
Shouldn't be outdated for a few years, and when it is, just SLI it to get double the performance!
Hot. Idles at ~70C.
Very big card, but so are most high end cards.
Cost!!! Availability (I bought mine from another site after missing five different card releases on NewEgg).
Amazing card. Runs everything maxed. Supports DX11. SLI scaling is off the hook.
I don't hear the fans at all, but I have an Antec 900, so perhaps my 200mm fan is covering up the noise...?
