Pros:

eats everthing i throw at it. wish drivers would work right, but this has been a problem of ati's/amd's for ages now. took 2days and acouple of six packs to finnally get it running without crashing.

Cons:

needs to be xfired with hd5870 for additional performance, mines wont oc past 750core 1050mem with out artifacting. was going for broke and do a 5970 in quadfire but that doesnt work out too well, a triple cross fire set up will perform better. not really a con but, it still is the fastest single card out on the market right now. knocked an egg off due to junk drivers.

Other Thoughts:

waiting on artic freezer heatsink, these things run hot, have to set fan on 45-50% if catalyst works half the time. really not an issue. i knew what i was getting into before i made the purchase. this card xfired with a hd5870 and a 4ghz cpu will keep up with any new card untill directx 12 releases with win8.
scores a 6300-6500oc on its own in 3dmark 11. 1090t at 4ghz,8gig 1333 ddr3 at 1600.
