To be honest, this is a awesome card! With the prize of 259 € this was a really good choice!
Some benchmarks i did with my pc(average fps measured with fraps):
Minecraft: 238
Skyrim: 83(vsync off)
Battlefield 3: 69
Everything was tested with best graph. Bf 3 with 2 x mxaa.
And i got to say that the cooling of this card, it is fabulous! I was able to run with Gpu 1450MHz and memory 1425 MHz stable w/ temperature of 63
