You dont need a 560, 570, or 580 card, this card does it all with ease, paired up with my AMD 6 Core CPU and 12gigs of DDR3 memory.
I highly recommend it.
-Automatic fan speed is not enough to keep the card cool at 100% load, It will reach 80C in no time while playing and it's going to reset itself every time gets close to that temp, and the Firestorm (Zotac's program to overclock and control fan speed)s#$%#!, 2 possible solutions, download EVGA Precsicion, customize the fan speed, change the curve temp vs fan speed in a way it gets faster everytime the temp gets higher but is gonna be LOUD, like you have a jet in your room, or buy a video card cooler, it will run quieter and you will have better temp control. I have a well vent case, it is a cooler maste HAF and still have some temp problems with this card at 100% load, I don't imagine how bad could be in a regular cheap case, even with the fan set to 100% it will reach 80C at some point with 100% load, it is cool now but summer will be bad.... Any way I'll buy the card cooler, the noise it is driving me crazy!!
I had noticed that the card ran a little hotter than I would have liked when under load, max 160 degrees F, but according to what I read, it was within normal range. When the DVI started to fail I popped off the heatsink to re-apply thermal compound and what I found was that it looked like the original compound had been put on with a trowel, and coated the entire chip adjacent to the contect area. I rubbed the old off, applied new and the card immediately ran ~30 degrees F cooler.
Long story short, card works well but if it's running above 130 degrees under max load you may want to apply new thermal grease. One starring it for shoddy workmanship. Might change it if they honor the warranty.
I can not say much of this Card since it was DOA, fan would not work and HDMI was dead so I had to return it. I bought instead an AMD Radeaon hd6850 wich I'm pretty happy with...At least the return process and the customer service from amazon was GREAT!
As far as performance, this thing is great! It has trouble running games in FULL HD resolution though, anything below that is great. This card blows my GT120 out of the water, all my games at the highest detail, while getting 40-60fps.
LIKE I SAID, NOT FOR HD GAMING. But anything below that this card works wonders. At a great price, you can't go wrong. Worthy for someone on a budget, you wont be disappointed when that new game you've been wanting comes out and you have this baby.
