Pros: Stays cool, Great Price for preformance

Cons: Utilities could be better

Well guys, for my first gaming rig I bought this card. I have loved it since, overclocks really well past the 6870 clock speed and for 20 or 30 dollars cheaper! great size and heat-sink shroud exhausts all the air out the back of the card into your 5.25 drive bays where you can expel that right out of your case.
I liked it so much I bought another one last week..... The performance gain I saw on Dirt3, BFBC2, and WOT was amazing. Some people would say not to Crossx this card but for the price why not! The cards do get loud but only if you do not have great airflow in the case.
Now Im not sure if its the GPU or my CPU but I cannot run BFBC2 all the way turned up. I would like some opinions if anybody would care to share. Thanks for reading, hope it was helpful.

Pros: Performance, Design

Cons: Packaging

A great video card with enough juice to handle the demanding 2011 games at 1080p with high settings - case in point is BFBC2. The video card ran quiet and cool, as tested in a CM 690II case. The design is sleek while facilitating good airflow through the heat sink. It would have been nice if the video card came in a sealed static bag rather than being exposed right out of the box.

Pros: Fast, overclocks well, aesthetically pleasing

Cons: noisy, support is bad

I'm just going to give you a quick review of my experience of this card.

When I got it I was quite excited, the size looked really daunting for me, coming from a 4670.

Fitted it in, all works fine.

However, with overclocking, came the problems for me I think, firstly this thing is hot, I mean 106+ C hot on the capacitors, about 70C on the core

Had it upto 920/1140 stable which is great

It's a shame the fan is noisy, and the support I receied is pretty much useless for it.

Good quality card for the price though, not sure if you would like it if it's for a quiet pc though!
