Good points:
Amazing Card for the price given the 2 free AAA titles and SSD hardware
Bad points:
Card was longer than stated dimensions, and card was not described as overclocked, which would be a consideration for power requirement

Richard,

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Very quite: the fans are literally stopped when doing normal computery stuff, and only spin up when gaming; even then they are not intrusive.

Great performance: going from a GTX 760 2Gb to one of these doubled my Elder Scrolls Online framerate from a barely tolerable 20-30 fps to a much comfier 40+ fps (with everything maxed)
Bad points:
I marked the card down for ease of installation for two reason:

1) It's massive. I've had plenty of big cards before, and they easily fitted in both mine and my partner's computer cases. With these, I had to remove bits from both our cases to fit them in. Double check how much space you've got!

2) It came with absolutely no cables what so ever. No SLI cable, and worse no power adapter cables. The card has an 8 pin power connecter; my PSU 2x6 and a +2. A 6+2 did not work. I had to use both 6 pin connectors connected to an 8 pin adapter for it to work. Luckily I had a couple of such adapters from previous cards, otherwise I'd have been stuck. When you pay a lot for a card, the least the manufacturer can do is chuck in some 50p cables to ensure you can use it!
