This is a really great mid-range card. After a bit of time setting up drivers I was good to go. I spent a few hours playing Sim City, Bioshock Infinite, Doom 3 and Dead Space all at top settings and locked to 60fps.

On my Asus ROG board I was able to quickly select the XMP profile and overclock to 1866mhz. Overall, set up is an absolute breeze.

If you are having trouble overclocking then you need to check settings and memory profile, as this particular ram is designed for this purpose, and I found that the process could not be simpler.

In terms of performance, I opened a dozen browser tabs and some… Read more
