Owned for over 7 years, still runs everything fine. Outperformed my gtx 1060 whilst playing Ark: Survival Evolved. Best aging GC out there, now time to buy a 2080ti and have it age horribly.

Is anyone able to tell me what God this could run on warzone

Bought it for ~300€ December 2012. Impossible to OC with the AMD tool due to bad chip, sadly. Still handles all modern games pretty well, but lately, with big open world titles like Conan Exiles, it runs into limitations. Most games previous to that I could play on ultra settings (except Shadows and Anti-Aliasing) with constant 30fps. Not that much, but well playable. But after 6 hard working years, it is time for a new one if you want, like me, to play coming games with nice graphic.

Высокий разгонный потенциал, после которого карточка взлетает по производительности очень высоко, Mantle и DirectX12. Идеальная карта по соотношению производительность/цена. Рекомендую брать со вторичного рынка—Oct '15

Handles certain games decently, have successfully played: GTA V, COD BO4, COD BO3, WoW, WoW Classic, Overwatch, World of Tanks, World of Warships, LoL, Battlefield Hardline, Battlefield 4. The card has served my well for ~7+ years. Only complaint now is that it runs hot and loud. 90C temps are normal for in-use 70C temps when idle. Fan can get up to 60% when in use which sounds like a jet. Overall decent card but likely time for an upgrade in 2020/2021.
