I bought this card after it was recommended by PC Gamer magazine. At first I was happy with the card and the performance. Unfortunately I kept getting freeze ups and grey screens. After some research it seems these cards are quite unreliable. This card was installed with a fresh install of Windows 7. Thinking it may be something else causing the issue, I uninstalled the drivers and reinstalled my old Zotec 560ti, all the problems disappeared. I have since sent this card back and replaced it with a Gigabyte HD7950 which I am very happy with.
