+1 to Amazon who did an overnite shipping so I can get it early. I was one of the first to buy this card from Amazon. The installation was simple, below are pros and cons

pros:
+ Small form factor compared to my old Asus nvidia 8800 GTX
+ Very lite and extremely silent, Can't believe that I have a performance graphics card which is so silent
+ Played Crysis 2 maxed out settings with high resolution texture and it played it very smoothly! you gotta see dx11 to believe it!

cons: none so far and I bet there will be none for sometime to come.

I am very happy with the card and a must buy if you are looking in the $350 range performance graphic cards..

If you can make up an analogy describing how a $250 product now will be as good as a $15 product in 8 years... then that is the nature of buying graphics cards. in year 2001, I bought a $250 Radeon 9500 Pro, which performance-wise is about as fast as a built in Intel graphics card in 2012. The card I am replacing is a $50 Radeon 5450. I start with this because as new products are released graphics cards are somewhat disposable.

ASUS seems to have discontinued this card for some reason, and I managed to get a decent going out of style sale so I paid about as much as a regularly priced 7850 here on Amazon after mail in rebate. When comparing my benchmarks to those online, I'm getting similar ballpark numbers so I am very happy. The card is large, about 10.5" long, takes two 6-pin graphics card power connectors, and at least two slots on the motherboard. Being there are two fans on the heat sink, I would not recommend installing anything in the immediate slot next to this card unless you are prepared to cool that setup down well. I have two fans pushing fresh air onto this card, so I have not had problems with heat yet. That being said, it does heat up when playing games, but nothing out of the ordinary for a large card like this.

It came with a download voucher for "Sleeping Dogs". Seems like a fun game, haven't played it much because I bought the card to play CS:GO with friends online and my old setup could run CS: Source (lowest settings), but choked on GO.

Installation went without a hitch. I downloaded the stock drivers from AMD before installing the card because I rarely use drivers on the disc, and ASUS wanted me to download and install programs separately to make this work.

Several months later than I purchased this video card, I can tell you that this was a satisfactory purchasing.

Games like: Call of duty, Crysis 2, Hitman absolution, Tomb Raider 2013 are run pretty well by this card.

The unique inconvenience is the software, some times it get stuck and freeze the screen, and the only way to solve the issue is rebooting the computer.

Ordered this when my nvidia 8800 started to artifact. The PC was too old to invest in a new top of the line video card, so I found something better than the 8800 at a very reasonable price. This video card runs games and 1080p playback without an issue.

Plays everything i throw to it at 1920x1080 and 1920x1200. Good temps in both idle and full load. Haven't overclocked it, hope i got a good chip.

I plan to CrossFire it and get 7950 / 7970 performance for future-proofing.

Not top of the line, I know. But at the price point, you can't beat it. I am still mostly a TF2 player and this card crushes it. 100+ FPS at all times. I also played Borderlands 2 with this new card and it was buttery smooth, no complaints.

If you are building a new mid-range (mid-cost) PC and want a great card at a great price, here it is.

Paired this with my 2700k at 4.4ghz and 16 gb of ram. What a great decision coming from an 8800gt. I can overclock this thing EASILY to get a good 10-15% boost in its performance. It's a big on the large side and the noise can get loud when playing games, but who is listening to a fan when you got explosions from BF3?!

Overall a great product. I used to love ATI with my x850xt and 9600 pro. Hope they can stay in business because they make great cards.

I recently built my first gaming PC. I had a budget of $1200 so I know I needed to go with a mid range graphics card. I decided to go with this one and have had no problems running any game at full 1920x1080. I am very happy with how this card performs and runs at a cool 25°C when idle and around 50°C when gaming. Below are the specs of my build.
