Nice review Hilbert. For the price you really can't find better, great overclocker, it even reaches 280X/770GTX performance with ease.

Overclocked well. Got a 20% core overclock there I see. I was interested to see that the generic comment of "Overall we have been able to get another 10% performance out of the graphics card. " has come up again in a graphics card review, when really you got another 14-20% more performance out of it by overclocking it, which is especially true in the GPU limited tests at 2560x1440 resolution.
