Score 10.0/10
Good points:
My first non Nvidia card, and it is so much better than Nvidia's offerings for the money. The software is also much better and far easier to use than Nvidia, and since installing I'm not getting any "driver crashed but recovered" errors which I had ALL the time on my old card despite installing latest drivers etc. Quiet and cool on normal settings.
Bad points:
Fan is noisy when on full blast.

Janine, A very happy gamer.

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
I cannot fault this card at all. This card is wonderful for gamers who are looking for bangs for their buck. This card may seem expensive to some gamers, however, this card successfully competes with some much more expensive cards.

The card manages to stay cool, while maintaining a steady frame rate.

The card IS very large and was too large for the case I bought, however, this was more down to my own fault and not fully checking the dimensions of the case next to the size of the card. After a couple of modifications to my case, the card fits perfectly and runs like a dream.
Bad points:
This card does cover the slot next to it so may not be able to be used for cross fire on some motherboards, however, this isn't necessarily a terrible thing if you are looking for a good quality card with a good price.

Tom, Whitley Bay Kind unbiased helpful

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Good value for money, easy to install though i would recommend a full tower case as the card is 01.47 " x 4.25 " x 1.54 " Inch.
The card does run very cool. On average the card runs at about 22 °C when idle. When the card is under load the temperature is usually between 45°C and 55°C.
The image quality is superb and you can run most games on a high resolution with ultra settings.
Bad points:
You will need a good CPU to make the most out of this card.
