Pros: This card is amazing, runs every game flawless: Cod4, oblivion, source games. Was skeptical about the heatsink at the beginning, but my worries were laid to rest when i fired this puppy up. Load temps are between 59-65c, and its not very audible.
Cons: strange smell
Overall Review: Its not loud as some people stated. Its audible but nothing compared to the blow dryer reference cooler. Those of you who have doubts about this, trust me, this is a great card.
Good while it worked
Pros: Runs all current games flawlessly with 60+ fps with the exception of Cryisis.
Cons: Well I got a defective one from the very first batch. Red artifacts all over the screen. I had to underclock the memory to get it to funtion properly.
Overall Review: Its not an overheating issue as some may suggest. I even out on a zalman vf900 and my load temps were in the mid 50's yet it still would artifact. Still is a great card an I was just probably unlucky.I Hope my rma replacement doesnt give me the same artifacting results as my previous one.
seems like a great deal
Pros: just an underclocked xt
Overall Review: shrapples you lie. This card was just released therefore making you a biased nvidia fan boy. Let people make their own decisions with up to date information instead of commenting on a product you clearly know nothing about.
