Advantages: Runs latest game with ease
Disadvantages: A little noisy
Purchased this little gem from Scan at a bargain £139.99. Once you open the packaging, you get the usual CD, SLI bridge but PNY threw in TWO vga/dvi converter which was very nice of them. The 1GB version is quite probably the best one to get as its in a good price range and is more than adequate for some serious gaming.
Perhaps I should take a step back and talk about installation. The card is quite big so you do need a roomy case and its a dual slot cooling solution to boot - so ensure that you have enough space to plug it in. Installation is pretty simple as it clips into the PCi-E slot and can be secured with screws or screwless case solution.
Once the drivers installed you are ready to load up some games and give it a twirl. First thing you will notice is that there is a bit of a whirr when the computer is switched on. The fan just picks up RPM but then settles down when Windows loads up (I think its a driver issue).
What sort of games and resolutions can you expect? Well the latest Modern Warfare 3 and Bad Company 3 can be played with Maxed AA and AF at 1920x1080 faultlessly. For those who don't like jargon - this means the card is very capable of playing these games with ease.
If you like recording videos or streaming this is also a very good performer. Expect recording full HD videos using Bandicam at 60fps (capped).
The card does become somewhat audible when stressed but that is probably to be expected. It does however maintain good 70degree operational temperatures so thats pretty good too.
Definitely a good christmas present for yourself or a gamer in the family.
Summary: Definitely a good christmas present for yourself or a gamer in the family.
