Great GPU 02/27/2013
Got it during the holidays for around $299. Performance is amazing. I was struggling between this and a GTX 670 but the price difference and same specs (192bit vs 256bit difference though) made me want to go for this card.
I haven't had a problem at all with framerate in any of my games. I can play games such as BF3, Crysis 2, Far Cry3, Skyrim, Borderlands 2, etc maxed out and get full frames and not notice any slow downs.
My Skyrim is modded with ENB's, extreme grass mods, water mods, .ini configs and I still get full frames except when in a dense grass area. Then I pull 25-30fps, but these mods are intense and I'm still happy with it.
As for temps, extremely impressed. Gaming in 1080p in BF3, using 100% of the GPU, 45% fan speed was only getting to 67C. I think that speaks for itself. Highest I've ever seen this go was 71C.
Only problem I personally have is idle fan noise. It's the only thing I can hear when I have my CPU fan down very low and my one case fan extremely low. Nothing worth taking an egg away for though. It's not extremely loud or anything.
I built a mini-ITX rig and wanted something quiet, power-efficient and better than my previous rig which had two overclocked GTX 460's in SLI. This destroys it. I love the card, the temps and performance I'm getting all while using less power and having a quieter, smaller build.
