Hey there all,

Recent Build... I had an HD radeon 6950 (Unlocked Shaders, and OC'd) but hated the results I was seeing with the Radeon. I swapped it out with a Sparkle Calibre x580 card. LOVE this card. The difference in the quality is amazing.

My question is, I don't see alot about the Sparkle Calibre x580? I found a review or two from when the card was first announced, but I dont even see much on any site I can find about owners reviews, opinions etc...

Is this considered a good 580? I know it's clocked higher then most I had found or the normal GTX580's. It's cooler is dead silent and temps are perfect.

I'm just confused at what I think is a very good 580 card, but not many people have it?

thanks for the input in advance...

-Gromet

Yup. That's the one. I had seen that review already. It's just about the only one I have found. No real world user reviews, videos , nothing.
