Glad i took the plunge.

Replaced my ati 7970 3gb vram with this baby and it scored 3k (from 6k to 9k!) more points than my 7970 although that card did play almost everything in ultra (skyrim ENB) gave it some work though and i`ll admit it was mostly the vram i was after to help cure my CTD in skyrim and it did and it also gave me much larger scope in ENB`s to choose from (ENB=graphics modification) it is nice now to play without worry of vram, when pushing this card in ultra in my system it can reach 70`c but genrally sits around 67`c and unboxing this card was the most enjoyable of all my cards purley by the weight of the thing you really feel you got your moneys worth i know its just the heat sink but damn what a piece of kit with engraved emblums on the card not stickers that eventually peel off it really does feel a quality piece of kit and with some nice msi software to boot. Although one point the heavyest games iv`e played on this card and they sofar have only used 3gb of vram (not tested sk!
yrim yet too moded for secondary monitor programs CTD time!) baring in mind i only have a 1080p monitor not 4k which i think would make quite a difference.
