Top of the line in the 400 series

Comments: If you're worried about this card running hot, take the same steps that I took in order to minimize the heat. First, buy a dual-slot motherboard (with 2 PCI-E x16 slots) and place the card in the bottommost slot as far away from your CPU as possible. This will also allow you to give it a direct airflow from the front intake fan, which should have as high of a CFM as possible. Secondly, buy a PCI slot cooler, pull of the mounting bracket and turn it upside down. This makes the PCI slot cooler draw air up into it, rather than down into it. You can then place it in the slot above the video card and it will pull tons of heat off the back of the main GPU area. I have this set up and both the GPU's exhaust vent (below the DVI ports), and the PCI slot cooler's exhaust vent (above the DVI ports) blow out very hot air. If you have a side window with a mountable fan, turn the glass upside down (if possible) and mount the fan as an exhaust over the video card, rather than as a CPU intake fan.

Awesome, but still not the best

Comments: I can run Metro 2033 at full settings at 1920x1200 with an average of 28 fps. All the reviews said that they could run ANY games maxed out at 1920x1200 including crysis, but not in my case, and that's with it being considerably overclocked. I have an i7 @ 4 ghz and 12 gigs of ram, so I know it can't be my machine. I just ordered another one for SLI, so by the time Battlefield 3, Skyrim, and Mass Effect 3 come out, I should be ready. But overall, it's a good GPU and should satisfy most gamers needs

Worth Buying

Comments: Thinking of buying at GTX 560, 570, or 580? Buy this instead. $350 is a fair price for these, I found mine on the Bay for the price of a 460. This has Full 1.5gb memory perfect on 1900x1080p monitors on up. Wasn't a jump up like I wanted from GTX280, but nice jump from 2x9800GTX. Those got 35fps in BF.BC2 and this gets 75fps with a AMD1090t/4ghz. With any CPU lower than an AMD 720/3.6ghz the GPU will be waiting for the CPU. Might as well go for a GTX460 and save some cash.

Amazing

Pros: Have run games for years with a 5870 at low settings. Now I can max everything out and truly appreciate games the way they were meant to be played. Yes, it's expensive, but to me, it's worth it.

One word... WoW!

Pros: Lots of video memory, fast with fantastic graphics.

Cons: Had some issues with game play lag in World of Warcraft, but once I disabled Anisotropic and Antistropic filtering, everything was smooth and was able to run at the ultra settings with no noticeable lag at all.

Other Thoughts: None

Great machines

Pros: I did a full rebuild back in August and have since then been preoccupied to write a review. This card is great, two is phenomenal. Crysis is like grass to a lawnmower. Cuts it, cuts it again and spits it out. Steady frames of 40+ while recording with fraps. Scores an average of 30-40 FPS in the Heaven 2.0 Benchmark with everything capped and tessellation on high.

Two of these together next to each other on a mobo isn't a wise option. I use these in a Rampage III Extreme and the board was built to use slots 1 and 3 at 16x for this reason alone. With them having a slot in between, the cooling is better and there is actually a few FPS increase in performance.

Hottest I've taken the card was 105c when running furry to check for artifacts. I had the fan speed locked at 55% and that was the only reason why. Re ran the bench and didn't go over 92c which is the norm for this card

Cons: Only con is it throws out high temps and this caused me to use the redirect box with the ATCS840 so the H50 wouldn't suck it back in to kill the CPU.

Other Thoughts: i7 930 @ 3.5

Excellent Video Card

Pros: This video card has completely ripped through every game I've thrown at it.

(All settings include online play as well as single player)

Crysis (and expansions) - maxed settings. ~40-60 FPS
Aion - maxed settings. ~50-70 FPS
Medal of Honor - maxed settings. ~50-70 FPS
Starcraft 2 - maxed settings. ~60-80 FPS
Battlefield Bad Company 2 - maxed settings. ~40-60 FPS

All games are played at 1980 x 1080 (P). Through an HDMI connector to a HDTV.

These were done without optimizations or any configurations. This was just after being assembled and a fresh install of Windows 7.

Cons: None so far.

Other Thoughts: Custom Rig:
CPU - i7 950 3.06Ghz
RAM - Corsair 12 Gb PC3 10666
GPU - ASUS 1.5Gb GeForce GTX 480
MOBO - GIGABYTE GA-X58 LGA 1366
OS - Win7
Power - 1k Watt Thermal
