I got tired of waiting for a MSRP or even a good priced IN Stock 480.

Paid $200 @ the egg.
As I write this I see it's Idle temp 39.0 c
fan speed 19%- 708 rpm
GPU load 2%
GPU only power draw- 9.3- 10.3W
mem usage 23mb
VDDX 0.8000v

I play 6 games in Armored Warfare -SD install( not the HD version)
All setting on High .
Highest temp 80c
Ambient temp around 84f. Also its very quite compared to the OEM GTX 760 Ti

The card is well made. Looks really nice-and has a added cosmetic chrome face plate .

Fits in my x51 R2 i7 - with no modification -just a tad over 9.5 inches,

if you have questions.. I will try to answer.

Have had zero power issues.

At 1st I had misconceptions on how GPUZ reported power draw. I latter found out that it reported power from PCIe and power supply.

So no over power draws.

Card has run stable from day 1

I love it!
