2gig GDDR5, 256-bit, small, cool n' quiet, lots of display out options.
Plastic cover is kinda lame and flimsy. Didn't dock any eggs for this, just a personal preference. Also, it slightly covers the power port, which is rather annoying for someone with meaty fingers.
Like many others, I bought this Black Friday for $150 and some change with a free Far Cry 3. Upgrading from two Asus 450's SLI'd, I saw a huge increase in performance, temps, and everything all around. There is some performance failures on newer games at high specs, but one card can't do everything, not for this price, anyway. Runs ME3 maxed, Fallout: NV maxed, Far Cry 3 pretty much maxed, and Black Ops II with all but max anti-aliasing and sync frame. Turn those on is playable, but get lots of glitching and frame rate drops in fast paced sections.
