Pros:

I bought two of these cards for a new rig I was making with the intention of SLIing them together. I plugged them in, installed the SLI bridge, and booted up. It immediately recognized the cards and offered to enable SLI. The setup was quick and painless, and I'm loving it. It's rocking the Counter Strike Source stress test at about 260 FPS for me. The fans aren't too loud either. In addition, I was surprised to find that Audio worked through this card through the DVI port while using a DVI to HDMI converter to my monitor. It was surprising hearing noise come from my monitor's speakers when I didn't think it would even detect the audio cable.

Cons:

Only two that I can think of... first off, if you couldn't tell by the pictures, the fans make the cards very wide, and will crowd out any PCI slots directly below them on the motherboard. If you don't need your PCI slots though, then this isn't a huge deal. Secondly, the little audio cable that attaches the video card to the motherboard was not the right type for my motherboard. After a bit of guesswork, I ended up plugging the cable into what I thought were the right jumpers (which fortunately I did). In the case that your computer has a 3-prong 1394 port (I think that's what it is) it will go on the right two prongs. That's all I can think of.

Other Thoughts:

This card is the first major upgrade in a video card I've had in a while, so I suppose I'm easily impressed. However, in doing the windows experience rating, this configuration easily scored in the mid 7's range on a windows 7 64-bit system. Everything I have done that requires video has rendered flawlessly, and using SLI on these cards can probably rival a single high-end video card.
