After having it for a year and a half this card hasnt failed me in terms of performance except bf1. A big part is that I play at 1920x1080 with 2gb of vram which is not a good idea. for 1080p great card and more then decent for playing any other games like bf4 runs a high-ultra around 100 fps at my res but it is lacking in newer games (not cod)

For a today price it is still a pretty competitive card with excellent power. After I overclocked on core 1325 and memory 1430 it can beat new cards from AMD like 460, 550, 560 and even get close to 470 and 570. Got score at 61.7%.

Bought a ref design one to put in my little sister's computer for around 50 EUR. This card is perfectly fine on stock clocks, but god can it overclock! core at 1285 and mem at 1450 and it chugs along fine! it gets a 60% score on here, purely insane.
