Pros:

- It runs pretty cool thanks to the big fan.
- 2GB of RAM allows you to crank up those texture levels.
- Doesn't require PCI-E power 6/8 pin power connectors, so it's good for those old PSU's.
- Pretty low power consumption.

Cons:

- The price/performance is simply not good. You're better off buying a R7 250 for the 90$, which will greatly outperform this card (Yes, I know this card was released before the new AMD GPUs, but I am talking about now, not the past).
- The PCI-E connector is weak - The card keeps moving inside my case and if it's slightly out of the connector, the PC will either not boot or I experience performance issues. I am sick of having to open up my case just to re-insert the card every time I move my PC.
- Plastic parts that break very easily.

Other Thoughts:

Just don't buy this card. It's not suited for gaming and if you want it just for media/general uses you can either buy a cheaper card or use the integrated Intel GPU (if you have a new core i3/5/7 CPU). Both will work just as well.
For reference - I was struggling to run Battlefield Bad Company 2 (a 3.5 year old game) at 1080p and high settings. Got an average of 25 FPS. I barely ran Battlefield 3, 1080p low/medium settings, at 30 FPS and with endless shuttering.
