Pros:

One of the fastest cards on the market, and a decent price. You can buy a factory OC'd card for a few bucks more, but overclocking it is so easy, I suggest just getting the "normal" card and learning to do it yourself.

It takes a single slot on the mobo, unlike some other recent cards which require two.

I'm running it at stock speeds but will OC later. It's very easy to do this with a bios flash or registry editing. This card is VERY easy to OC.

With a 7900 GTKO, I was pulling 24-40 FPS in WoW, and 25-30 FPS in NWN2. Now, I am pulling 35-60 FPS in WoW - TBC (Ironforge) and 55-60 FPS in NWN2 - no stutters.

Cons:

It's long - about 11.5", so make sure you have room to fit the card in your system.

Might need to replace the stock cooler if you're into heavy Ocing, as it seems a bit weak.

Other Thoughts:

This is really a beautiful card, and my previous eVGA card is running smooth as silk (7900 GT KO). I put it in my girlfriend's Dell.

Main reason for upgrade was some new DX10 MMOs being released soon (AoC, WAR), and to get a bit of a performance "facelift" for Adobe CS3.

eVGA limited lifetime warranty sold me. Unless you put it in the microwave or solder something to the card, you can always turn it in (I exaggerate here slightly, but it's pretty durn close to that).

With step-up, you literally are given technology insurance if the next "latest and greatest" comes in 90 days within purchase. eVGA is a great company with great products - and they are pretty attentive on CS. This is literally free money - if you choose to use it. If not, no loss. Win-win situation.
