I would like to note that I never recommend upgrading to anything but twice as fast at least. You already have a very good card, and while the difference will be great and noticeable of course, but perhaps it won't be as much as what you would find satisfactory.
I'll buy a new card because currently I can't run games smooth with maxim settings like Far cry 3, or Assassin's creed 3, etc.
I don't known that the gigabyte's fan has a durability problem, i will continue reading more reviews that help me to choose the best one. Thanks a lot...
