Amar, York

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Brilliant performance, overclocked reasonably well and maintains a decent temperature under load; even in my Dell inspiron 580 case

Very quiet when idle

I know this card will allow me to play high end games for a while now

Bad points:
The fans run loud and don't respond to MSI Afterburner under load for me, - this may be a driver issue; AMD drivers aren't as user friendly as Nvidia

The card is a big one but all the high end cards are, if you have a smaller case you will find this card harder to install - comes with the territory I guess

I'm occasionally getting voltage drops on my card, enough to freeze games - need to look into the source of the problem
