Pros:

Purchased this card for a quiet build with a 5800K APU and GAF2A85X inside a Fractal Design R4. This card runs very cool and rarely surpasses 50 Celsius, and the fan is inaudible. The backplate adds a nice touch to the card's aesthetics and does not become hot, it compliments the white LED aerocool fans installed in my case. Unlike longer higher end graphics cards, the pcb has remained flat without any signs of bending, and is quite light requiring only one 6 pin PCIE power cable. This card can overclock in addition to the factory overclocked speeds, but not something I have in mind, at least for the time being. The 2 GB is a nice feature over most other Radeon 7790s if the one intends to use all thi memory for multiple screens or for a specific application.

Cons:

2GBs adds a premium to the card over other 7790s.

Other Thoughts:

Crossfiring this card with another 2GB 7790 will be a little too expensive. One can get more bang for the buck when buying a 7950 since it has essentially twice the specs of a 7790 (896 sp vs 1792 sp). Unless you plan to use two 7790s (shorter pcb) to try and match th performance of a 7950 (longer pcb) in a small computer build (if crossfire supported by app).
