Pros:

I was /not/ expecting to utterly /beat/ a pair of 670's on 1 card, but in the end, I was able to edge over my friends system. You have to understand, we're on x58 920 i7's. I mean, I kinda knew going in I was going to stomp face on an old pair of 560ti's, it came, it conquered out of the box, and then after bending it over my knee and making it do what I wanted, it dominates.

Cons:

BOOST... you... you are a villain... and SEVERELY underclocked by stock settings!

Other Thoughts:

Considering a pair of 760's? just buy this, different beast entirely, I can assure you and basically the same price, it's the safer bet from someone that's been midrange since 8800GT's(G92's). I will tell you, straight out of the box, you /will/ have to grow a pair, and flash this bios to make it work like it should! Boost /will/ make the card flake(happened to me and I was stuck at 546mhz until restart)! Use a combination of afterburner to get the actual performance you want. It will overclock like the beast it is without blinking or batting an eye. Never before have I had a GPU I could just throw 500MHZ at /memory/ and not get artifacting... is that even possible? How? wat? Threw another 250mhz on a custom flashed bios that sits at 945 with boost disabled. http://imgur.com/a/Tiz15 Go here, understand this is an x58 i7 920, so... think about what it could do for /you/ on /newer/ hardware... brain...hurts...
