The graphics card is one of the most important parts of the gaming machine and probably took the most amount of my decision making skills to decide on what to get. Ultimately I chose this model and am very satisfied. It can run every game I have at 1080p on max settings without breaking a sweat. Nvidia Geforce experience even increases the rendered resolution higher on some lighter titles. "The sweet spot of gaming."
I'm happy with this cards performance. I successfully overclocked to core 1586mhz / mem 3824mhz. It runs stable and hit a max of 62C in Heaven benchmark (high/2xAA/mod tess).
Great card for 1080p gaming. Not sure I'd spend more than $200 on a card like this, but I did get it on sale for $180, so it was a win-win for me.
I've heard blower style cards can be louder and it's definitely true, though not as bad as the PSU in this build. Something to keep in mind if total silence is something you want.
