I was originally going to get the 1gb version, but Microcenter offered me the 2gb for the same price. The first card I got was doa, but once I exchanged it everything went swimmingly. This card destroys Battlefield 3 on ultra at 1920 x 1080 and every other game I own runs silky smooth. Also, this card is the reference model with two bios chips, so theoretically you can unlock this card to a 6970 (though I haven't had a chance to try it yet). The only thing I don't like about this card is how loud the fan gets once it's above about 50%. Other than that, it's great and I'm planning on getting another for crossfire later on.
