Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Brilliant card for a budget build. Very easy to install. The fans on top are surprisingly very quiet. On games such as Battlefield 4 the temperatures don't go above 45 degrees
Bad points:
When using HDMI one of the DVI is disabled. Just take a note of this if your thinking of doing a 3 monitor set up.

Like most graphics cards they need better cooling through this is not to bad the last card i had had to have a better heat sink and fans, and i think this one would benefit with one too apart from that its spot on

Stuart,

Score 4.0/10
Good points:
was replacing my 2gb 6750 with this, the only difference is the mhz went from 750 to around 1000 and ddr3 becomes ddr5, for the price this didnt seem worth it but i did it anyway, its MUCH better than i expected to be honest!
Amazed me with how it handled graphics over my old card.
even thru battlefield 4 at it in its highest setting, in 1080p it did not drop below 40fps while watching a building fall with lots of dust and shading and sat watching it amazed at the cards performance.
Bad points:
replaced my 6750 with this, my 6750 would idle at 38c, this idles at 42c.
it runs stupidly hot, was playing tomb raider in 1080p in amazement as my 6750 wouldnt play it on highest settings, then i closed it to find my graphics card was running at almost 70c, my cpu was at 20c and i had all the fans on high, this was unacceptable so have since sold this and gone back to using my 6750, means i have to run games in 720p over 1080p but i've never had that card into the 60c range.
The only disappointment with this card is the fact that the thing runs insainly hot and it would not last long at these temps.

Nigel,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Upgrade for older Raedon series (assus) card. runs my eyfinity set up with ease. Instalation straight forward performance seems very good. Can run graphic games at a hight level and still surf the web on my other screens. (Still pays to shut down screeens to play high end games COD crysis etc.) looks well made, good value for money.
Bad points:
none so far

rob,

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
very clear picture works great
Bad points:
you only get a VGA cable with the monitor. Would be nice to get a DVI or HMDI as VGA is pretty obsolete now.
