"Our final thoughts are simple. NVIDIA's done a good job in ensuring that a midrange GPU has true top-end performance clout. AOpen hasn't seized the opportunity with both hands. The Aeolus FX5900XT doesn't have enough going for it at the asking price of £150 to seriously warrant an immediate purchase, and the lack of a bundled game is disappointing. We'd either opt for another partner's card that offers the full gamut of hardware (VIVO) and software (games) extras, or we'd plump for a generic model at a lower price-point."
