580 for the price of a 570 but better! 07/15/2011
To keep it simple this card is amazing. 580gtxPerformance+quieter+colder@570 price
It is absolutelly silent and runs incredibly cool. (32-36C idle 55-59C after 2 hours of crysis2 DX11+HRtextures) the 3 fans do an incredible job. I run an all air case with 2 120mm intake fans and a 120mm exhaust and top side mesh.
Performance wise this is a beast. Ran the CRysis2DX11HR texture benchmark 5 times and got an average of 46fps. I cranked all the settings from the nvidia panel to the max and the game still ran at around 37fps.
The card might be too big for your case. This thing is GIGANTIC! I have less than 1/8 of an inch clearance between the card the the HD cage. It made the installation tricky but not impossible. I am not sure if be able to maneuver a second card into my case without bringing a saw into the mix.
Excellent benchmarking article for this card and other similar ones.
This is an excellent contender to the much raved about MSI 570lightning and a few bucks cheaper.
