Great Card 06/13/2011
This card is an excellent card for the money and have achieved some great results. I have been able to max out and get very playable results from: Crysis 1 & 2, BFBC 2, Brink, COD Black Opps, Rift, Aion, Red Faction Armageddon, Dragon Age 2, Mass Effect 2, Shogun 2, Star Wars Force Unleashed 2, and Ultra setting on Witcher 2 without ubersampling. The card has a great overclocking program and it will overclock to 1040 MHZ with shader clock over 2000MHZ, which is really impressive. All the games were tested in 1920 x 1028 resolution. Card is relatively quiet and only gets loud under heavy load. The card is only 7 in long and fit perfectly in my midium sized tower. Overall this card is well worth the money and the extra 2gb of memory certainly helps out. This is so beyond my Radeon 5570 the difference is shocking! I have it set up to my 42in hd TV and watching blu-ray movies is amazing. It brought Windows index from 6.9 to 7.7.
The card can get pretty loud when stressed but only at a noticable noise level. It really is not an issue and only other thing is the when playing Witcher 2 I get odd pixelation at random times. However I do believe it is a driver related. One thing that is proving to be annoying is registering the product for the factory warranty because the makers are located outside of the US.
Crysis 2 looks so amazing on this card! So much better than the xbox 360 version. Everything looks so real. Completely blows my mind.
