This is an amazing card for the price. I have two of them running in SLI in my upgraded rig.
I'll just focus on installation and performance and also packaging and presentation. If you want all the detailed specs etc. just scroll down and read the product description.
First things first, contents. In the box you get the card (thankfully), power-splitter cable, mini HDMI to standard HDMI adapter, VGA adapter, a few screws and a driver disc (already outdated, go to nVidia's website for the latest drivers). The box and packaging is all premium quality and presented beautifully. Exactly what you expect from Asus.
Installation was a breeze. Just find your PCIe slot on your motherboard. Slide it in. Secure it to your case with a couple of screws. Attach the power cables from your power supply and your good to go. If you have two of these and want to run SLI just pop the second one into the PCIe slot next door, secure to case, attach power supply cables and SLI bridge, go to your nVidia Control Panel and activate the SLI option. Done.
Performance is excellent. Running the Crysis GPU benchmark (found in the games `Bin64' file) a single card was getting an average of 35-45fps (DX10, 4AA, 1080p). For a card in the sub £200 pricing, this is amazing.
Running the same benchmark with two of these cards with the same settings was 70-80fps. At certain points it went over 100fps!
So to summarise, the performance of a single card is excellent and well worth the upgrade if that's what you are looking at doing. Also at less than £200 you would be a fool not to seriously consider the Asus GTX560 as a viable upgrade.
Two of these cards will eat through every current game with everything set to 'high detail'. Better performance than a GTX580 and about £20-£50 cheaper for the two GTX560's.
