Hi.
Although I would prefer a different brand this looks like a standard Radeon card following AMD's reference design. Video cards are fairly reliable if you have good ventilation in your case and depending on dust pet fur etc you keep the fan clean. Make sure your power supply has plenty in reserve as this card needs a 600w. The unit comes with a 33month warranty which is pretty good too. I would go for it, I have a Gigabyte HD 7770 and I am very pleased with it. Gives me a 7.6 score in Graphics and Windows Aero Graphics.
Good Luck. Tony.
