All in all I would definitely recommend this product to anyone considering buying a graphics card for around $200...

(For testing I used The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim with a very demanding enb preset
Functionality: (Performance
Runs extremely cool, highest temperature I have seen so far is 64 degrees centigrade
Runs very smoothly, frame rates are much less erratic when spinning, moving and loading new areas in-game
Frame rates themselves are very pleasing when you consider the price point of this card. 28- 46fps
I was a little upset the card didn't come with a case badge, at least in the LE model it doesn't. oh well : P
Display drivers constantly crash under moderate load. This card is not overclocked
There is some bloat ware that comes with this card, but thankfully it is optional, the bloat ware will slow the graphics card down a good deal
No cons thus far. A few loading screens on D 3 were flashing but once it loaded it was beautiful on FULL settings and ran VERY smooth paired with an AMD FX 8320 VIII 8) Core Vishera
