Pros:

-Amazing power for the price paid
-Bought 2 for CrossFire and they both unlocked with just a flip of the dual bios switch. (Lucky to get both to unlock!!!)
-Runs crysis 2 on ultra settings without a Hiccup!!

Cons:

-Wish I had a monitor that supported 1920x 1080, just can not justify buying another monitor just for that small increase from 1680x1050. If if were in the budget I would get a monitor that supported 2560x1440 and really put these cards to work!!

Other Thoughts:

I only had one issue and it really was something that just took a little research and it was solved. AMD has a power saving feature that will shut off the second card if it is not in use. This may be nice for some users, but I wanted to be able to monitor and use fan profiles for both of the cards at all times. I finally found a forum on Overclock.net that explained to me how edit the windows registry to turn the power saving option off. Turning it off allowed me to adjust the fan speed of the second card which gave me the options to create fan profiles and possibly overclock the card if I wished to do so.

Another note, if you see this card in stock BUY IT QUICK!! I got very lucky that I checked my Email when I did because 1 hour after I bought these 2 cards they were sold out!
