This card delivers the performance it promises. I'm running Borderlands 2 on all ultra settings with hardly an issue. It has really turned my machine into a budget super computer. (16 GB RAM, 4.1 Ghz AMD, 120GB SSD).
The only issue that has developed since I've installed this card is the amount of heat generated. I will no longer be able to keep my tower inside the cabinet. It will have to be set outside so it can breath. Twice I've had the system crash to what I suspect is the card becoming heat soaked and shutting down. I feel like the fan design could have been utilized better. Although the card takes up two expansion slots, the vented case plate is not an exhaust port. A blower style fan may have been better here. But I'm no Vid Card engineer, so who am I to say that would be better.
Overall I'm very pleased, and would buy this product again.
