Most helpful reviews

Steve, Sheffield I do my research

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
One of the best graphics cards sub £200 atm. Achieved 40+ FPS with an old Athlon II x2 250 (1680 x 1050) and DDR2 memory, so I'm impressed. The card looks great
Bad points:
The card is huge, it can be a challenge to fit in, but if you've got a normal ATX chase you should get it in.
After a few weeks of operation the casing surrounding the fans and around the power connector seems to be coming further away from the board. This may be part of the design but I will keep a close eye on it.

Ian, Northampton

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
this was an upgrade for a pc that came with a standard (but good) graphics card. I needed something with a little more power for gaming.
It's not the best card out there but for a lower budget it is very good.
Bad points:
have not found any yet

Conor, St Austell

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
This card is fantastic; allows me to run pretty much any game on maximum settings, and get a decent frame rate, while staying near silent.
Bad points:
Was not made aware that I needed a PCI-E power output on my PSU; had to buy a new PSU to power the card.

Chris, Stevenage Pessimist, atheist, gamer, narcolept.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
-Quietest GPU I've ever owned, inaudible over case/CPU fans, and my case is running an ultra 120 CPU cooler and arctic cooling quiet fans throughout; not being audible over my case is no mean feat
-Runs cool (max 63c under full load)
-Solid construction
Bad points:
-Only one bonafide DVI port, but that's the way the tech is going. I'll have to rustle up an adapter, but hey, that isn't the card's fault
