You're really just paying for better heatsinks and fans on these cards -- honestly I would just downclock one, and increase its lifespan, if I had the $$$ to afford one.

If you want high-rez performance at that price, you're better off just coupling two $250 GPUs together... or do like I do and just deal with 1360x768 with decent AA. You have to be a serious videophile to really notice the difference, IMO -- and in that case, you probably don't mind spending the extra $$.

For best image quality you want run the resolution your monitor supports natively.

If you're gaming at 1360x768, this card isn't meant for you. There are $100 GPUs that would perform more than adequately at that resolution.

To each his own, but this card is meant for 1920x1080 or above (preferably 2560x1600) resolutions, multi-monitor setups, overclocking enthusiasts and benchmarks. If you just want to play BF3 at highest settings at 1080p you may as well just buy a GTX 560 Ti for a third of the price.

To me, this card is an investment -- a well-cooled, future-proof GPU for games at 1360x768 until 2016. Other GPUs often don't have the durability of the OC editions, because they don't have the necessary cooling to be reliable for 4+ years.

I have the option to push the rez to 1920x1080 (or more) on games in 2012 as a bonus -- but that's not the sole purpose of every buyer.
