Pros: Works great for all sorts of gaming. Runs iRacing with triple screens with full graphics.

Cons: None.

1 out of 5 eggsLord help you if you have to work with ASUS return

Pros: I wouldn't know....I guess it's pretty.

Cons: Had this motherboard in its package until I needed it for my build. The card was dead....fans worked and that was it. The twister, is working with ASUS return folks.
Was wanting a X shipment replacement .. so I had a case number and the man at the ASUS call station said I would receive an email within 48 hours. 120 hours later, I decided to call back....I will now receive help within 48 hours. Time has started now. We shall see.
I have a $29.00 card in a $6,000 build at this point.
It nevers gets better! Customer service that is very abysmal.

Other Thoughts: Gave one egg because you can't post with no eggs.

5 out of 5 eggsAWESOME!

Pros: I got the last one! ASUS EAH6950 has 4 standard display ports available. This means no trouble with mini display port to standard display port adapters when running monitors using display port cables.

Cons: I was looking forward to hanging myself with the Startech cable I had on order to adapt the mini display port on my HIS to the display port on my HP lp2475w. Another user suggested this in a pro for the startech cable. "Can be used as a noose when you give up trying to get your display adapter to detect your monitor" mini display port sucks, be glad it is not present on the ASUS EAH6950.

Other Thoughts: I almost bought one of these when I assembled my computer April 2011. I wish I had of, the HIS I bought is nice but the ASUS is AWESOME!

I will have to say I am worried about how I am going to fit a three slot card into Crossfire for Eyefinity. I am going to try to use it in slot 2 set as primary.

5 out of 5 eggsBeast from the East!!!

Pros: This thing is awesome! Though the drivers that came with crashed BF3, the updated versions from the ASUS website fixed it. Now I'm running EVERY setting on the highest no problem! I still haven't seen the temp get over 45C even after playing with friends around the clock for almost 24hrs.

Pros -

Sheer Power - I'm sure it will handle anything that I can throw at it for a couple of years

Cooling - The two fans and beastly heatsink really do the trick.

Good Toolset - Comes with 'GamerOSD' which lets you take screenshots and capture video in a lot of different resolutions. The 'SmartDoctor' tool has a decent fan controller and temp monitor for the card. It also has some basic overclocking and voltage settings.

Compatibility- Worked with all my other components which includes an AMD FX processor.

Shipping - Came alive and well with no damage to any of the packaging or other products. On time.

Cons: Nothing negative to say about performance. It really puts out and stays cool doing it.

Size - This thing is HUGE! It almost didn't fit into my Antec LanBoy Air, I had to really work it in there. Also, it takes up three expansion slots on your case.

Power - Needs an 8pin (or 6+2) and a 6pin peripheral power connector. Not too bad if you consider 2GB and massive processor performance on a single card vs. two in XFire or SLI. This can also be said for the expansion slot requirement.

Other Thoughts: If you can fit it in your case, I would definitely recommend this card. The price is well worth the power.

My Rig-
AMD FX-6100 OC'd to 3.6 @ 6 cores
ASUS AMD Radeon 6950 Direct CUII 2GB
ASUS ROG Crosshair V 990FX AM3+ Motherboard
Corsair Vengence Memory, 8GB @1600Mhz
Western Digital Black 1.5TB SATA 6Gb/s 7200rpm 64MB
Windows 7 Home Premium
