Pros:

Extra VRAM to get the job done. Noticed in Afterburner that BF3 used now 1.6-1.7gb of VRAM instead of 800mb on my old GTS450 SLi. By the way, a single on of these babies beats my 2 old cards. I got two of these cards and put them into SLi. The result is an unstoppable beast! This card gives you the bang for the buck, and extra ram really handy for 3d work. It overclocks quite nicely too. Easily beats a 6990 or a 590 when in SLi. Keep in mind that this card is EXTREMELY COOL, the fans are dead silent. Even though, they get loud after 50%, you could only hear the WIND, the fans still remain silent. Not encountering any problems so far, these cards are really well made, and if you are one of those who really pays attention, there is a support bracket to prevent bending under long term heat and weight! They really thought about everything for this card!

Cons:

This is not a 680, and you might want to wait for the 660s. Although nVidia decided to get away with putting the GK104 with a 256-bit memory width (which is really a model on par with all the 60s model in each generation). This card might be rendered obsolete soon. There are not that many cons to pick. The only thing that really bothers me (just a little) is that a 560Ti is a high-end card, yet it only sports 2-way SLi. I would be glad to get a third one of these, in the future to keep up.

Other Thoughts:

This is a big card so make sure you have space. This is also a heavy card, hence the support brackets are genius! Make sure you have enough 6-pins for two cards if you are going to get two. Using molex converters is a pain, since each 6-pin need two. I would recommend at least a 750watt PSU for running SLi, and make sure the rating is silver or gold (or else you'll be cutting it close).
