Packaging: Upset that the card wasn't in an anti-static bag as I was going to use that for my old GPU but nonetheless the packaging was pretty decent.
Noise: I'm always wearing headphones so I never hear anything but overall I do not notice a difference in fan noise, sounds just like my 750ti.
Price: You cannot beat this price, better than the 970 & cheaper? What a steal.
Performance: I only play one game in particular and my 750ti gets the job done but in some areas of the game it'll go below 40FPS and that's why I made this purchase. My 750ti would idle at ~35 FPS on ultra @ 1080p, with the 1060 in the same area, I average 100FPS on ultra @ 1080p.
Also, make sure your power supply has an extra 6 pin connector (usually it's a 6+2) in order to give this card some power. Only adding this in because my friend who's clueless when it comes to computers had no idea he needed such a thing and had to upgrade his power supply in order to run the card.
Anyways, if you game in 1080p, I highly recommend this card, won't need to make an upgrade for quite some time.
