So let me recap.
This card will allow you to play Crysis 1 at a resolution of 1920x1080 at 24x AA WITH super sampling applied, 16x AF, AND with the "Real Lifesis" & "Xtreme physics" while maintaining 50+ FPS! That is incredible!
Now you are probably wondering why this is NOT a 5 star review. While this card is BLISTERING fast it also gets BLISTERING hot. The cards cooler is less than desired for a card of this stature. Without overclocking and utilizing stock fan speeds the card averages between 85c and 95c depending on the games load. And idles around 50c. The back plate gets so hot, it is untouchable to the human finger without causing sever burns. (YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED)
The blower style fan is also less than wanted if you are attempting to maintain a quiet case. If you want to keep your GPU cool while gaming you will need to blast the fan AND play with head phones. At 100% the GPU is about 68db which is almost as loud as a small vacuum cleaner.
So lets recap the problems here.
Just like every other GPU, they do have there flaws.Read more ›
It didn't work out of the box for me, on an ASUS motherboard it just made the screen blank. The flashing of the bios for my ASUS board is a non-starter for me. Too many things can go wrong with that. So, I switched to a Gigabyte MB, and it's working fine.
I bought this card for an extreme software engineering project, and I'm looking forward to having 5+ TFlops of capability at my fingertips. I recommend buying the little copper stick-on heat sinks to extend the life of the card, and the motherboard around it. The motherboard I'm using has extra copper in the wiring, so it should have better thermal properties. Still, this kind of heat will cause the motherboard to expand and shrink. If you don't know what you're doing, buy this pre-installed in a system-engineered and pre-built system. Heat kills electronics, so don't expect a complete system build running this full bore to last more than 2 years.
AMD's developer support for this card is bad compared to NVidia, but the capabilities make up for it.
I will never buy another AMD/ATI card ever again.
Enjoy the card, I did, and do.

This is not overkill for 3 monitors. And with that said, you could argue that 3 monitors are overkill. Well, don't knock em till u try em. Read morePublished on January 22, 2012 by Dan "who farted" Meyer
I bought two of these to try out AMD's flagship GPU's. When they arrived I swapped them out in a NVidia (GTX 580's) rig. So, far I think the NVidia cards worked better. Read morePublished on December 10, 2011 by zyklonterror
