Other Thoughts: Purchased this off of another site a few weeks ago. Just wanted to correct the last reviewer and help others who may want to get this monitor. THIS MONITOR WILL RUN AT 2560 X 1440 USING HDMI. You must have a fairly recent Graphics Card ( mine Nvidia GTX 750ti and works perfectly at 1440p using just HDMI) to run full 1440p using HDMI. Your graphics card simply needs to be hdmi v2.0 capable.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: My Passmark 3d score 5013. That is GTX 760 territory.
Cooler is incredibly quiet and keeps card cool.
Fabulous backplate. Card well made and sturdy.
Have not seen card go over 60c yet.
Zero coil whine playing games or at desktop.
Cons: None so far after about two weeks.
Other Thoughts: I realize this is a beefed up 7870 but it is still way better than what I had previously. I had two fanless 7750 Sapphire Ultimate's in crossfire because I do not like extra fan noise. While the performance was good with these cards crossfired (and silent) I did not like some of the quirks of xfire when playing some games. Was looking for a fast and low noise single card to replace what I had and this was exactly what I was looking for.
I am just amazed at how quiet and cool this card is as I cannot hear it in my case at all. Am running hdmi to a 40" Sony 1080p tv/monitor and everyhing I have runs smoothly.
Pros: Powerful ***see notes***
Other Thoughts: You get what you pay for in this case. This card is not as powerful as a normal GTS 450, but in return you get a very low power (no pcie power plug needed) cool running card that still has enough juice to play most games and give excellent graphics on all else. It is also a small card that only takes up one slot, so this card will fit in the smallest cases without a problem (not low profile though).READ FULL REVIEW
