Pros: Lightweight alluminum construction throughout, quick drive installation tray's, PSU is up out of the way of the processor. Interesting style
Cons: Didn't survive UPS.. The PSU mount was ripped off in shipping and the back top of the case and side panels were pushed in about 1/4" the whole case was knocked out of square. I didn't have the patients to talk to anyone about it or to re-order, so I got out the deadblow mallet and some anvil's to reshape the corners.
Something odd, it looks like the case was repainted, there's a layer of metalic green under the black, and then where there were scratches all over the side of the front panel hinge, someone pencilled them in with a Sharpie to hide the scratches, not very cool in my book.
Other Thoughts: If you use this with a VGA card that has the rear slot exit coolers, like the newer ati/nvidia products, you will need to reverse the flow of the side panel cooling fan.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Smooth graphics.
Cons: Big card at 9" x 1.5"
Covers the chipset hsf and 2 sata connectors of a foxconn uAtx nf4 motherboard.
Processor limmited with 2.2ghz venice
Other Thoughts: You need a fast processor and good memory bandwidth for this card. It's a little underpowered with a venice at 2.2ghz
Make sure your motherboard chipset and drive headers are not obscured before buying.
You might need a different motherboard layout to take advantage of sata raid and/or aftermarket motherboard chipset coolers/watercooling, the gts is 9" long, it may cover these features of your motherboard..
I heard these cards have some slowdowns out of the box, that Foxconn 640 gts's are not supposed to have.
