Thinking of grabbing one of these as a gift for my best friend's son. He plays a lot of Skyrim and he's using my old 5770 which just isn't up to. He games @ 1920 x 1080 and has to turn settings down to maintain a decent framerate.
Likely it'll give him slightly better performance than my 5870 while running cooler and using less electricity. Win-win. Just wanna' wait and read reviews for the cooling the different manufacturers will use.
