Easy to install and get running smoothly.

Gavin, Blackpool

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
I don't game but use my GPU's as number crunchers and this card is blazing fast!
Temps hover around 48C max with constant 96% load.
Much lower power consumption than my GTX580's for nearly twice the speed.
Bad points:
Drivers - had to re-install them several times to get them stable.

Screen flickers in lighter screen images regardless of refresh rate setting, again probably a driver issue.
