I got it from a sale in NCIX. so far, it's working very good. start to play the game that comes with it.the index in win7 is 7.8 haven't overclock yet. I was expecting a heavy/ solid "boxy" card like the one shown in reviews but received with a new design that looks like Asus card(with only one fan in the middle). no as noisy as previous reviewer say as i slowly rise the fan speed from 50% to 60%. tomorrow will rise more with overclock.
