I can play halflife 2 and Doom 3 at 1600x1200 with all the eyecandy turn on. Enough said.

Well pleasantly surprised is the expression I was looking for.. Overall this is card performs better than I expected.. Doom3, HL2, JointOps Escalation, they all run smooth as I could ever need them. I replaced a Ati 9600xt with this card and the performance increase is amazing, when I first bought my 9600xt the price was around the same range but this card performs about 3 times better than it ever could, i'm finally back to Nvidia and I couldn't be happier with the purchase. Pros: 2 Dvi connections on the gpu but the package also includes 2 converters for analog crt's. It's blue and looks good through any window. Performs like a true DX9 card right out the package, no o/c needed. Cons: The fan on this sucker is LOUD, anyone into the quiet pc fad will want to add a Zalman heatpipe to this card.. the fan isn't really that loud when compared to other gpu fans i've had in the past, but it sure is the loudest thing in my supposedly 14db quiet pc.
