Pros: Good price (after $20 rebate)
Runs really cool
2 free games!
I actually received my rebate!!!
ACX cooler is nice
Cons: none really. see below.
Other Thoughts: I bought this for $179.99 after a $20 MIR(~12/27/13). I also received the holiday bundle as a free "free gift" and have only played Splinter Cell Blacklist so far. That game installed fine and so far has run really well on my system. Game settings are nearly maxed out and I still get ~60+ fps(never officially measured w/fraps). I did run the Unigine Heaven DX11 benchmark when I first got the card and was able to get a solid 60fps with max settings. Unfortunately, I only have a 1680x1050 monitor so with a 1080p monitor you should expect some frame rate loss. I do notice some jitter/ stutter in a few of my older games(Rise of Nations:Rise of Legends was one I remember) that ran fine on the 9600gt this card replaced. It only seemed to happen on cut scenes and gameplay was, as far as I could, tell just fine. I don't know if this is a software problem or a problem with the card. I have played bioshock(2007) on my 2nd partition and that seems to work fine. I don't know what to think atm.
Believe it or not, I'm still under $650 for my entire system including this card. Not too bad for an ultra budget school PC that can play modern games every now and then.
