Amazing Card 03/28/2012
This card was really an amazing deal for the price I paid. I purchased two to SLI into a very nice build recently, and love them to death. Everything defaults to 100% using the cards without auxillery settings, and with the use of a bridge, the SLI setup was a breeze. The fans are rather quiet, and the system stays cool without much effort. On top of that, I have been able to play several games on Maximum settings with at or better than 60 fps on low gpu combined usage (around 40-50%), including World of Warcraft, Final Fantasy XIV, Borderlands, Dead Island, and more. I can see myself still using these cards well in 5 years' time. Well worth the buy for an SLI system. The rebate was also quick and painless, and I recieved both within a few days.
The physical installation in my tower was somewhat troublesome. These cards seemed rather bulky compared to other cards in the size range, and I needed to apply a bit of force to seat the screw properly. I'll admit, that was more poor design on the tower, but that was the only problem I've had with these cards.
Be careful, as these cards require two PCI power connections each. They work fine with 6+2 connectors, but you will need at least 4 6 or 6+2 connectors to use 2 in your system.
