Pros:

I purchased a complete HP quad-core Windows 7 PC from NewEgg at a great price, and the computer needed a few upgrades so I could continue my World of Warcraft addiction. The HP computer has an Nvidia motherboard, but I am a fan of ATI Radeon graphics. I selected this video card based upon reviews of other NewEgg buyers, the price, online testing reviews, and Free Shipping. Installation of the card was easy: Windows drivers from the CD installed without error, and I am very pleased with the overall performance thus far. I have no plans to overclock this card although the Control Center provides all the necessary tools to do so.

Cons:

Like other reviews on this product, I am frequently hearing the video card fan 'spin-up' while playing games. It occurs every 8 seconds, and sounds like a distant hair-dryer being switched on-then-off. On the locked/default installation setting, the video card fan spins at a very quiet 30% when the PC is only running Windows 7. I am researching online to find safe operating parameters so I do not burn out the card by unlocking the default setting and modifying the fan speed to prevent the spin-ups during gameplay.
Also using the default installation card setting, in World of Warcraft the distant shading effects are blocked and pixelated, but this too can be fixed by me with research and testing. I wanted to note that the video card settings require a bit of refinement and tweaking.

Other Thoughts:

I am confident that after I find the proper settings this will be a powerful card for gaming. For those that are shopping, compare these video card specs with an ATI Radeon 4850...pretty impressive.
