This card is a BEAST!! 08/15/2012
Decent price at time of purchase
Twin Frozr cooler keeps temps low
Dual cooling fans, 5 heat pipe heatsink
Overclocks like a BOSS!!
Overclocked it gets into GTX 580 performance numbers
Can be a power hog-especially when OC'd
Generates lots of heat
You can find used 570s for about $200. I've seen EVGA 570s go as cheap as $175.
Power requirements are 550w minimum but I'd run a 650 at least. I overclocked my core from 750MHz to 920MHz, memory clocked at 2100 shader at 1800 with +70mv voltage. Rock solid at these numbers for 2.5 hrs in game and could probably go just a bit higher. Temps at about 68 on air in an NZXT Phantom full tower w/ all case fans.
I got a hard 60FPS in Bioshock maxed, the FPS never moved from 60.1. BF3 Ultra was a steady 60FPS average sometimes dropping into the 50s. The Witcher 2, maxed, I got steady 60s and occasional drops into the 50s and a few dips into the 40s.
