I was quite surprise with this card. It runs modern game pretty well. I get about:
36 fps Hitman absol ultra
57 fps skyrim ultra (with 33 mods)
You'll be surprise how this "Tiny" card performs. :) Yes a tiny card compare to the same performance from the big blocks of Nvidia 9xxx GTX series.
Cons: Not a hardcore gaming card. Get the GTX 550 ti or 650 ti if you really want to go ultra on every new games out right now.
Other Thoughts: I wasn't planning to game with this card, but after testing it, it's good enough for gaming. 384 Cuda core is enough for old and new games (2006 - 2012) to run at a decent and playable FPS.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very fast with my Asus 97 mobo and GTX 650 ti. Played BF3 with 60+fps ultra on stock speed and never went 50c+.
At first I was worried because of what the intel fanboys are saying in tomshardware (Never take advice from a fanboy), but after testing it with my programs, I think it's bargain for the price and what I need it for. (Didn't bought here) Sure it wont run 1000 programs at once, but it gets the job done. Plus the fact that I can overclock if I needed more juice (Why I chose this over i3, it has more headroom for performance and you can't overclock i3). Tried it at 4.5ghz for brief use and it seems very stable and very fast!.. (You need a water cooler if you decided to permanent overclock it to be safe)
Cons: Wish it was a real quad core, but oh well. Saves me energy bill on 95w. :)READ FULL REVIEW
