These are full of features, but if you are going to be using it for gaming, best to look elsewhere. For HTPC, it would be a win.

Yep. It looks appealing with the 96 shaders, but it only has 32 TMUs and 8 ROPs and a 128bit memory bus with GDDR5 (less ROPS than a 9600 GT). Would be a nice low power consumption upgrade for F@H if you wanted more cards.

I like the XFX one better because the end of the card is the end of the PCIe slot. These are longer.

I was surprised that this card (with 195.55 drivers) beat a GTS 250 in Crysis. Other games put this a little bit above a 9600 GT.
Just to be destroy by the 4670 in HAWX? :p
The performance is too inconsistant for my liking.
