Not overly loud, At less than $160 its a real bargain. It plays game well at high detail settings at 1080p. Do not know about higher i only use one monitor.
Got mine for $149 after MIR with Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider, and Bioshock. Can't beat that value at all! If you are ok with 30+ fps, this card is for you and believe me you could get much more fps from many games maxed.

Summary It's a budget card aimed to provide low to medium graphics settings for most modern games. Bought one for a budget build no problems so far. As an owner of 7950 and 7970 cards, it's not bad if you don't mind lower graphic settings.
I'd go for the 2GB version of this series or 2GB 7870 series for $20 more when on sale.
Pros Decent frame rates in most games. Runs well on high detail, and some games on Ultra detail.
Cons Overheats badly, can't overclock at all.
Summary This is my second XFX card, and I'm not very impressed this time around. It was great that it came with Tomb Raider and Bioshock Infinite, and while the card plays most games at acceptable frame rates, it blows tons of hot air directly into the case, and overheats very easily on the latest high-end games. Don't bother trying to mine Bitcoins with it, it just overheats and causes display artifacts, sometimes even crashing the display driver or freezing the system. I previously had an XFX 6850, which blew heat out the backplate of the case, but this card blows all it's heat directly into the case. And it gets HOT! Even without overclocking, I've seen it hit 103C, and then it temporarily down-clocks itself to 400MHz, which kills your frame rate. Do yourself a favor and get a get a 7870 model with 2 fans. And maybe buy something not from XFX. I bought this card because I needed a new card while I wait for XFX to warranty my 6850, which died under warranty. Apparently they have no refurbished cards in stock, so it's a long wait for XFX warranty too.
Summary Got mine for $149 after MIR with Far Cry 3, Tomb Raider, and Bioshock. Can't beat that value at all! If you are ok with 30+ fps, this card is for you and believe me you could get much more fps from many games maxed.
I am a console gamer so this is more than good for my needs and budget. I can max many games t 1080p. I also don't mind 720p which even gives me more room to push more taxing games like Far Cry 3 and get higher fps.
Pros -Very good performance/dollar. -Overclocks extremely well (1ghz core on both cards I purchased) -Fan does not make a lot of noise. Very quiet as far as cooling goes.
Cons -Card makes a high pitch squealing noise when under load. -only 1gb of gddr. Maxes most games now but probably not next year. (not very future proof but good as a cheap buy to get you through until 89xx/gtx 7xx launches.
Summary -If you need this card for a media PC or a PC that is meant to be silent stay away. (my pc is on top of my desk 3 feet from my ear.) -The high pitch noise this card makes was bad enough I RMA'd the first card and put in the second I bought to use for temporary purposes. Unfortunately all 3 cards in the end all made the same noise when loading and playing games. It seems to be related to power draw as when the cards are idle they are completely silent. I even unhooked the fan on one of them just to see if it was the fan/power for the fan, however it was only gpu load related. -If you don't need perfect silence when under load overall this card is fantastic value. I just wish the power load noise issue didnt exist.
Pros looks good stays cool even with just one fan lowest priced of all similar card
Summary Very please with this purchase. Got this for my baby nephew and it play everything he throws at it in max settings on 1080p. Idles at 31c and low 60's on load (this is on a OEM comp with one case fan) and overclocks like crazy. Just wish I purchase it a 3 days later could have score the little guy a few free games.
Summary This card is a good deal for the price. I got it at 159.99 on special and will have a 20$ rebate by mail so it has cost me only 139.99$ for this card. The card gives good speed and comes close to the 7870. I had some problems with the drivers. It kept saying that it could not find an XFX product in my system and would not install the drivers. I had to go on the website to download the drivers and finally it worked. There are 2 gb and even bigger cards out there but for the price it is still a good deal and it can play every games out there.
Summary This card was perfect up until this month. I contacted support about it, I never overclocked it, everything was way it was and my setup had cooling for the card (Under a stressed environment it had a MAXIMUM temperature of 55 degrees). After doing a full driver reinstall ( Following the supports instructions on how to remove old drivers it stopped crashing) However, now I'm noticing artifacts while playing games, (Although I haven't crashed (YET) ) XFX has yet to answer my support ticket regarding why I am seeing artifacts while running games like Diablo / League of Legends
