Great performance at a wonderful value

by Drew Nietert on 7/1/2009

The card is wonderful. It replaced an EVGA 8800 GTS that worked fine, but simply didn't have enough horse power to play games like battleforge. This card runs battle forge at 1900x1080 perfectly smooth. Keep in mind you still need a decent CPU, but if you have that and don't have the $600 for the other high end cards - this card gets the job done quite well. It is installed in a custom built unit: Core i7 2.66Ghz, 6Gb Ram - No overclocking.
