Pros:

No full refund! HOORAY!

Cons:

Where do I begin? Tried to be optimistic, but this card is JUNK! I installed it and updated drivers for Powercolor website, then I got a vertical line crash watching a video. Formatted HDD and reinstalled Win7 x64, making sure not to install any DX games/apps (known to cause issues) and not to watch videos. Same crashes on everything. Borrowed cousin's XFX 6750 and installed drivers: ran all variations of DirectX games (Dead Space), Crysis2, watched movies for hours, no crashes at all. At first it ran Starcraft 2 extreme flawlessly, but after first vertical line crash NOTHING worked. Even opening Notepad crashed the system.

Other Thoughts:

Look guys this may be the cheapest 6870 on Newegg, but please do yourselves a favor and spend an extra $10 for one that works. At first I decided to take a gamble for this card seeing many others reported they had success. Now after an entire week of diagnostics, tests, and HDD formats, I seriously cannot stress this enough: do NOT take the chance and get this card!
