Pros:

It is the best Mac video card out there (boot screen, etc) for Mac OS
About as quiet as the 5770 at idle.
Minidisplay ports, wish all cards came with them

Cons:

Expensive
Noticeably louder in games. Would have appreciated a custom quiet cooler for the markup in price instead of the blower.

Other Thoughts:

Title says it all. This purchase finally convinces me that my 2009 Mac Pro is at the end of its career.

The card is a decent upgrade over my 5770. It seems better than the 5870 I briefly had but returned to Apple due to heat and noise. As a 2009 owner, would I buy it again? No. If I had a 2012 model, maybe. Just know that if you do buy it here Newegg's VGA Return Policy is really a "Replacement only" policy.
