Happy with its performance, especially dollar for dollar it does a great job. Realy not much to say I haven't really stressed to much yet.

For the money, power and heat, best upper mid range card you buy, Direct X 12 full future support also being key.
If you want you budget build to be future proof, obviously go with an R9 290+ or equivalent card, but the heat, cost and power requirements obviousness alter the entire build.
This was my trade off, but with new chips coming out this year, no need to buy old stuff yet.

Cool and quiet card. Great upgrade from an HD5770. Not too tall and sometimes you can find them for a great price. Mainly playing Diablo 3, SC2, and TF2 at the moment, but it handles all of them easily on high settings and 1920x1080/60Hz.
If you have a shorter case, this one has the power connectors on the long axis of the card, which could make this card problematic if you're limited in GPU-length.
