Lives up to expectations. 12/19/2012
Producing 60 fps (game's fps cap) on ultra high settings in Mechwarrior Online. This card handles MWO's CryEngine 3 with a level of detail and smoothness that is unbelievable.
Quiet, rock solid video card. The case fans make more noise. The three fan design on the heat sink is better than the reference design fans most mount.
A pair of these cards in SLI out perform a single 690. Right now, the price of two of these cards is in the same ballpark of a 690. No reason to buy a 690 with cards like this one on the market. Definitely worth purchasing one if you can.
Smaller cases and older motherboards might find it a bit cramped fitting one of these as it does take up three slots in the case.
