This model is amazing if you're looking to overclock. If you're hesitant to try it out, do some research and see what others are saying about it. I have yet to find a review that didn't claim the ability to clock it past 950 core clock and close to or even 1200 memory clock.
I wish that review said how much power it was drawing when OC'd. It sounds like it scaled with performance, judging by what was said in the closing remarks, but there wasn't enough info there to be sure.
I may just go ahead and get that. Its $10.00 cheaper than the Sapphire 5850 Toxic. Would you say its a better card?
I like Asus very much. I usually use them for motherboards.
It's definitely got some solid overclock potential. If you want, take a look at some reviews and see what the different sites are saying about the card. I did a massive amount of research before I decided the DirectCU 5850 was the way to go. I found one for $325 at a local shop.
