My System Specs


I would say that these are the last of the available cores so that would be much more of a limiting factor than them being weak. These cards always suffered from horrible stock cooling. Even my 8800GT with the Quimoda ram overclocks like a beast once I put the HR-03 on it. Other than being slightly outdated, this is a killer deal on a good card.
Driving sim: Intel DQ67SW/I7 2600/12GB/ASUS CUII R9 290X 4GB/128GB SSD+750GB HDD/ASUS Xonar D1
Daily: HP 7800USDT E8400/4GB/GMA 3100/160GB HD (at least it plays solitaire..)
HTPC: Dell 960 SFF Q9550/8GB/R7 250 2GB/128GB SSD/2TB HDD
