Pros:

Great card for the price (atleast when I bought it). Bought this for my girlfriends computer build which is pretty much my old build with a few upgrades here and there. Only a slight performance difference between this card and my GTX 680. I mainly bought it because of the windforce system. This card runs insanely cool idles in a htpc setup at 32C hasn't gone above 59C even while gaming. This is in a hot room in a wooden HTPC case, ridiculous cooling. Nice stock overclock on card and can be pushed a little further. Very quiet especially considering cooling performance. Great driver support.

Cons:

Doesn't compete with the 7970 which can be picked up for around the same price some days. Knew this going in but the card dumps hot air into the case instead of outside so be sure to have good airflow.

Other Thoughts:

I purchased the Revision 1.0 seems to have an extra heatpipe vs. 2.0 also 2.0 is on a different PCB. Revision 2.0 may be a cost cutting revision?
