Ultra Durable VGA™
Features & Benefits GPU Temperature 5%~10% down Ultra Durable VGA board provides dramatic cooling effect on lowering both GPU and memory temperature by doubling the copper inner layer of PCB. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA can lower GPU temperature by 5% to 10%. Overclocking Capability 10%~30% Up Ultra Durable VGA board reduces voltage ripples in normal and transient state, thus effectively lowers noises and ensures higher overclocking capability. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA graphic accelerators improve overclocking capability by 10% to 30%. Power Switching Loss 10%~30% Down Ultra Durable VGA board allows more bandwidth for electron passage and reduces circuit impedance. The less circuit impedance, the more stable flow of current and can effectively improve power efficiency. GIGABYTE Ultra Durable VGA can lower power switching loss by 10% to 30%.
"Triangle Cool" Technology
GIGABYTE introduces the latest exclusive "Triangle Cool" Technology to reach a better cooling performance. The latest patent pending technology combines fin with clip module in a special triangle shape. With the original anti-turbulence structure plus the new triangle cooling design, it enhances the efficiency of heat dissipation dramatically by minimizing the flow of turbulence between fans. Therefore, the "Triangle Cool" Technology provides a more efficient air flow for the cooling system.

Takes any game I throw at it at 1080p and Windforce cooling keeps it under 60 degrees at load. Only Crysis 2 and BF4 Beta on highest settings would run at less than 60fps, still very playable though. However, I redeemed Far Cry 3 without hassle but I still have yet to receive a working code to redeem Blood Dragon, and as expected with a video card running 3 fans its a little loud, but nothing unbearable, especially if you're a headphone user.

I got this card on sale at a great price. I am upgrading form a console to PC user. This cad is good for people that have a tight budget but still want good performance. The graphics I get on this card are fa better than current gen consoles such as the 360 and PS3. A great option for budget builds.
Purchased this to replace two 4870s in crossfire, this single card puts them to shame. I've overclocked the stock core/mem speeds of 1100/1200 to 1200/1300 respectively by increasing the voltage to 1.25v using MSI Afterburner. Even with overclock, card temp stays around 52C under load which is very impressive. I have an Antec 1200 case (very big) with lots of fans which may attribute for the lower temps compared to the avg system.
I got this card to replace the onboard hd 2500, using for about 6 months, and before that hd 2000 6 months, and before all that the x1650 pro. I'm happy I got this card. At first I was holding out until the 8000 series that won't be till the end of this year (speculation). With the sale, and game bundle, pushed me to get this card. I really like the bundle and surprised it would come with it.
I was debating between this and the Asus, and MSI, all were a little bit more in price. I went for the Gigabyte to try it out and read good things about it. I've always been an AMD/ATI user, since the 9500 pro days.
