The card itself is really big, about an inch more than my ATI 4870, so many mid-tower cases may need to be completely rearranged for it to fit. The card itself is quite quiet, even when running under load. It rivals the 4870 while idle and completely blows it out of the water (quiet wise) when running pell mell. I'm running this card with a Crucial 520w power supply and it is working like a champ, so either I am getting really lucky or there is even more power hiding under the hood somewhere.
My only concern is the price which seems high to me, especially when this card is supposed to be the next-gen version of the 4870, which debuted at $299. That is only a knock on ATI for their pricing scheme, not that of Amazon or Sapphire. There is a good chance that the 5770 may be just as good, and cheaper, so definitely look into that when thinking about buying. This card is definitely overkill for me, but I don't want ANY slow down in games at a quiet noise level... so maybe it isn't!
Overall, great card that does what I want, quiet AND big and somewhat overpriced. I hope this helps.
PS - Amazon shipping is what made me buy from here... $25 bucks from just about any other store to Alaska PLUS handling fees? No thanks!
I was originally going to crossfire this with another one when the price came down, but even a year later, I see no need to.
