from completed build My Gaming PC (2016)
This is the component that makes this a beast at 1080p (and some 1440p) gaming! It can run any modern title with no issue what so ever! The tri-x cooler is genius, it's really good at keeping the card cool under load, however, make sure your case can support such a large card, as the 30cm (12") cooler can be quite the squeeze in some cases.

This can run all my usual games on high/ultra at 60 fps+ in 1080p. This card is a carry-over from my previous build.

from completed build Mid Level Budget Gaming Build
Best price:performance ratio I have seen. Excellent build quality, large factory overclock that significantly impacts performance. Plays modern games on high to max settings at 1080p with 60fps. Combination of triple fans and vapor chamber cooling keeps it below 60°C at all times, looks absolutely beautiful. Very large, 12.13"/308mm length so make sure your case can fit it. Can make cable management somewhat difficult especially in a mid tower with a non-modular PSU. Got it on sale on Newegg for 220 USD, best deal on a graphics card I have ever seen.

from completed build Keep me up to date! From 2011 to 2017
In summer 2015 this was a fine choiche for the budget i had. It's a MASSIVE, i had to do a great job fitting it in my previous case (elite 371). In my new case (carbide 600c) it was a piece of cake but keep in mind the dimensions when looking at cards this long.
