First, this card is an awesome overclocker. Only had one issue with it while doing my initial overclock, and that was because I got a little crazy. The card runs everything I throw at it. It maxes out BF3, Crysis2, Skyrim, Borderlands 2, Guild Wars 2, Starcraft 2. Plain and simple, the card is great.
Another side note, this card directly competes in performance and price with the 660ti. Depending on the game, (If it is Nvidia sponsored or not), the performance will vary, but once you start overclocking this thing, it will destroy the competition, and who can argue with 3gbs of ram?
I have no complaints about the card itself at all. The game it came with (sleeping dogs at the time), was utter garbage. Now, that I finally have the game working, its awesome, but for a full month after I got the game, I couldn't even get he game to start. Either way, it was free and now that it is working, it runs smooth as butter. And this is not something that xfx, amd, or newegg could control so there is no way I'm docking an egg for that blunder. (Especially since the game was free)
If you are on the fence between getting this card or a Nvidia card, I would seriously take a good look at the games you will be playing. Although this card is freaking awesome, games like Borderlands 2, and the Crysis series are notorious making the games run far better on a Nvidia card, even if the card is worse than its amd competitor. If you are going to be playing games that have no allegiance to either brand, then I strongly recommend this card.
