Decided to buy a new card because my old PNY Geforce 9800 GT couldn't keep up anymore, first I wanted to go with GTX 280 or HD 5830 than after reading some reviews and seeing some charts I was pretty sure that this is an investment to make for couple of years to come and I wasn't wrong. It performs well with most of the latest titles like Dirt 2, AVP, Assassins Creed 1 and 2, GTA 4, Crysis Warhead. Run all them at max settings at 1920x1080 resolution it's all really smooth and get good fps on all of them.
Pros:
Very powerful yet doesn't require much power of PSU, can be easily overclocked to 5870 level, runs cool.

Cons:
It's long and bulky, but should fit most of the cases without problems. Power connectors are in the front. Auto fan control isn't that good and it crashed couple of times because it wouldn't react till card overheats but I set it to 50% manually so it's ok now.

Although cons aren't that important just wanted you to know. Off the topic:
Does anyone know why graphic cards keep getting bigger and bigger instead of getting smaller and more efficient? Is progress going backwards when computer used to take up the whole room :D

Verified Purchase
Based on other reviews this is a great card - that's why I bought it. But I couldn't get it to work with my motherboard which is a, ASUS P5N-E SLI. I upgraded the motherboard to the latest bios, and applied every update I could find. I was running in single-card mode, not SLI, because I was only installing one ATI Radeon card. Whenever I plugged the card in, a constant 'beep' alarm sounded, and the fan ran at maximum speed. I saw some folks on the internet were able to get it to work, but after 3 hours of trying, I gave up. My recommendation: Go to the nVidia site and find a compatible SLI card. There are plenty available. Again, I don't fault the ATI card; it's just not compatible with the motherboard I have. Also, it's a pretty long card so make sure to measure your application before buying.
