Pros: Easy to install with no glitches. It replaced a GTX 260-216 and slid right in, same size same power. Easy and event free is good.
I am getting a considerable improvement in FPS and quality. It is like getting new games. I ran Metro 2033 on DX11 and Max everything at ~30FPS. Useable and very nice looking. Other stuff like BC2 is in the 70+ range. More than needed.
Noise is pretty low, heat is acceptable. It idles at ~40 and, when hammered, gets up to ~70.
Overall Review: I am most interested in useable performance in games. Once the FPS get above the display refresh rate there is little marginal return on investment. I expect this card to keep me there for some time.
