My System Specs

Default

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 Other than being slightly outdated, this is a killer deal on a good card.
