purchased this to upgrade from a gtx1050ti and so far extremely pleased with the performance, seeing i'm using an older motherboard with pci-e 3 and cpu (i5-7600k) and a 10 year old Iiyama Prolite E2773HDS. Tested using Horizon Zero Dawn and the benchmarks were good with the limitations of the system when running with settings on ultra with the cpu being the bottleneck.
I have an antec 1200 case (again extremely old) and the card only just fitted with a bit of a struggle and removing the drive bay caddys.
The card runs good at not gone over 52degrees on max load and not really heard the fans kicking in, but on average it runs around 26degrees.
Yes, it is a bit pricy but was the same price as the two fan version (which was slightly lower clocked) and was hard to get, overall extremely happy with this card and would recommend as an upgrade from the earlier cards and as long as you have decent sized case and specced board/cpu/memory.
