Thanks Music. I will review the reviews.
It's amazing that you could potentially pay a net ~$105 for this card.
In actuality, there were a couple of other reasons for the upgrade: Windows 8, 3 yr refresh cycle...so I was only half joking...
No problema! I'm right there with you, I'm coming from a 4870 1GB from 2009, so this was my 3+ year upgrade for me, installed it already and I have no problems running BF3 on Ultra.
