This card is Great! I can run everything I play at the highest settings. too bad it sounds like a an airplane when the fan goes over 50. Highly recommend getting a gaming headset along with this card.

I actually bought a XFX DD wasn't a BE though it was a 925mhz got a great price on it but ended up returning it because it was voltage locked and I couldn't even get a 30mhz oc on it in a couple of games. The quality was superb though with it's aluminum case. I have already got a 65mhz oc with this one staple in a couple of games so far.

Nice anything over a 1000 is bad ass. Got mine up to 1145 with a voltage bump for some reason my voltage was very low 1.100v for 1010mhz. My 925mhz xfx was 1.175v.
