Fantastic Service!

Superb card replacing a faulty graphics card almost out of warranty.
Returned card on day I went on holiday to Spain for a week.
No new card on return. Called OCUK on Thursday 1 pm lunchtime. Was told they hadn't sent a new card cos the old card was no longer in stock.
Offered this fantastic new card. It arrived at 11.00 am following day.
Happy days! Superb Overclockers I can't thank you enough. No sign of the free games not too bothered though. Repeat again top customer service. Thanks OC

Got this card today and runs Unigine like a champ, plays everything ive thrown at it on max settings and my CPU isnt even the best! Phenom x6 1055 2.80. As always super fast delivery from OC!

Amazing in terms of performance.

I bought this card a couple of days ago, in terms of performance and temperature it's amazing. It hasn't struggled with any game I've thrown at it yet, which was to be expected.

The card idles at around 40-45

It has a good cooler sitting on it so its quite and cool.

The greatest test right now is Battle Field 3, with a mild overclock @ 1920 x 1080P i'm getting an average of 55 FPS with all presets on Ultra with only AA turned off (which makes no difference @ 1080P anyway) this is on 64 Player Air maps, inside Metro its 60 to 70 FPS.

40 FPS is considered 'just' playable, anything over 50 FPS is pretty good and silky smooth. the golden frontier is 60 FPS, tho to me it looks and plays just the same at 55.

This will play Air maps with the AA set to its max (4x) but that's 40 FPS and sometimes drops to below that.

You can spend

This just arrived, i have to say, it's bigger than my motherboard. When you buy a motherboard and this graphics card, triple check that the north or southbridge aren't going to be in your way, else it is not going in!

Impressed so far, installed drivers, plug n play, still being updated as we speak! it also comes with a free dvi-i to d-sub(vga), which made me a happy man.

Very very impressed, was scared to turn the pc on, since it also takes 2 pci-e power slots(but fortunately comes with connectors if you're power supply does not).

Upgraded to this from a 8800 GTS on my old Abit IPro-35 with a 5 year old Q6660 Quad Core CPU OC to 3.2GHz running 8Gb 1066 DDR 2 on 64 Bit Win 7.

Very impressed with my performance boost Crysis 1 on High settings Full 1080P resolution.
AVP everything whacked on full. Runs sweet.

Yet to try BF3 and Skyrim but not expecting massive results compared to the very high end GFX's and latest CPU configurations. However, anybody who has older spec and wants a performance boost with the latest games at optimal settings. I highly recommended this card.

Thanks OC's!!!

expected good, got better

what a monster, its quite large so make sure that you have room in your tower. also It requires power direct from the power supply via 2 PCI express power cables (I think thats what there called) if you thinking of buying one of these, I think its important that your power supply is 500W or more.

I didnt have too much trouble poping it in

from the windows experience index, on a scale of 1 to 7.9, both graphics and gaming graphics are on 7.9!!!!

im pretty happy with this card, havent done much gaming with it yet though.

Great Card

This card is amazing, for the price/performance. I went from two Sapphire 5770's in crossfire and the performance of this card only beats it by a little but that is to be expected, I plan to add a second of these when I have the funds as this will make the graphics performance of my system extremely powerful.

With the dual cooler that is on the card my temps idle at about 37 degrees and max out at about 65 degrees. Keep in mind that I have overclocked this card to 880MHz on the GPU and 1340MHz on the memory, stable as all hell.

BF3 on 1080p everything maxed out apart from AA I am getting around 40-50 FPS. Definitely worth the money!
