Pros: Works with Ubuntu Linux Default RadeonHD drivers, much faster performance than previous graphics card.
Cons: Packaging seemed a little cheap, but it arrived safe an functioning. Non-descript unmarked cardboard box, like you might use for a deaddrop giving money to the mob.
Other Thoughts: I wonder why it was refurbished.

Pros: Runs games such as Skyrim, Borderlands 2 and Crysis 2 in high settings. Quiet, and cool idles around 54 Celsius in a small crowded tower. Size is perfect for mini towers. Out performs the 6770 and rivals the 7770.
Cons: Not being an Nvidia card means no cool PhysX effects, most notable in TWIMTBP, (the way it's meant to be played) games. Borderlands 2 looks alot cooler on my M11xr2 with the physX. It's an older card. For the price look at the GTX 560ti.
Other Thoughts: I have read a lot of reviews bashing the 5770 but I found a great site for comparing a lot of the 90-$150 range cards, and it still out performs most in it's league. Not being an Nvidia card does have it's draw backs, and in this case the GTX 560ti does out perform for about the same price. http://www.hwcompare.com/8917/geforce-gtx-560-ti-vs-radeon-hd-5770/
