Pros:

Very good price to performance ratio
Looks good
Runs cool with 1 monitor

Cons:

Stock fans are garbage
Voltage is locked, unless you find a way to unlock it
Runs hot with more than 1 monitor

Other Thoughts:

I bought this card back in September 2012, and it was a big upgrade from a 9800GT. I was running one monitor at the time, which had the temps at about 35 in idle, but when I hooked up a second monitor, it went up to about 40 degrees. The more monitors you have plugged in, the hotter it will get.

I tried overclocking it, which worked half the time but I left it at stock since I had no need to OC. After about two months, the fans started to make a loud humming noise. I figured it was normal, until it drove me crazy one day. I took out the card and manually spun the fans, which caused a buzzing noise when spinning. I tightened and loosened the fan screws to see if it was vibration noise, but I found out it was the barrings inside. One of the fans was working and was silent, but the second just made such a loud buzzing noise. I recently bought an Arctiv VGA cooler to replace the stock one, and now this card is awesome. It's totally silent at 100% fan speed and the card idles at 38 degrees with three 27" monitors.

I could have used the warranty, but was too lazy and wanted an aftermarket cooler anyways.

I will be overclocking it soon when I unlock the voltage.

If you get this card, get a custom cooler for it. The stock one sucks.

I gave 3 eggs because of the issues with the fans. I expected them to go bad after a year or so in, not after two months.
