Ok it looks like there is alot of bad points but when ure warned about it its just fine for the rest. But basically, as an installer point of view, this card is not the most well conceived card. Im explaining : the heat exaust (the plastic cover precisely) is so long that it touch the dvd-hd rack in certain standard cases. Also, with an asus m5a97 evo, its right over the sata plugs so you have to remove the card to plug in new parts with sata! a pain in the ass. Also, its so big again, that to unplug it from the pci-e socket, you actually need ur little daughter's finger to go press the clip to remove it under because it hides it all! and last, the 2 pci-e power plugs are stock right beside the plastic heat cover, and again, u need these daughter's fingers to unplug them since u cant reach with these big old fingers!
But that was the negative part, as once its putted in and the cover is putted back on and you press power, that card will make you forget this 30 minutes of pain in the ass for full time in heaven with the performance it will throw in your face! Again ive putted up alot of rig, but this, full hd in bf3 and full on graphics and not a caugh from the card!
So that is why im giving this card an excellent rating because it is excellent in games, so it does what its supposed to do, run a game in the max settings!
