Good cards for collecting, performance is between okay and poor however. It has fallen into the spot where the power consumption and noise is not worth it anymore. Although it helps me save money on heating my room so four stars

Extremely reliable for 9 years, performed above expected until now (2019). Ran Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 at least at medium graphics, with extremely rare issues
