None so far
I bought this card for a gaming system, most games I like to play are 2 or more years old. I mainly run flight sims and racing sims, Rise of Flight, FSX, IL2, RBR, Grand Prix Legends, GTR2, iRacing, RFactor and still play Half Life 2, GTA 4,and some older titles once in awhile.
Im running this with a Pentium G860 and 8gb of RAM on XP Pro.
With this card I can run any of the above titles at 1920x1080 but I do have to lower the eye candy to varying degrees depending on the game. Typical FPS killers like clouds, trees, shadows, trackside objects/crowds. ROF in particular I read is very demanding on hardware, with some lowered detail and draw distance I get very smooth frame rates at 1920X1080. I get well over 120 FPS on iRacing and it still runs choppy...I dont think its the cards fault. FSX drags to around 35 to 45 FPS at med level detail, I do believe FSX is very CPU limited however so i'm curious how it would run with this card and a better CPU.
Overall I think its quite capable keeping in mind the cost. As always its a price/performance question. I put together an entire gaming rig with this card for less than $350. With that in mind it's a winner in my book.
