Pros: 3dmark rating is over 4,800. The average passmark rating for a 570 is 4,300. It flies, it soars. It's not a 670, but hell, it handles everything I can throw at it, what more could I ask for? Can get hot at times, but with the EVGA precision tool, you can always just tweak the fan to run high at those times (but the fan CAN get pretty noisy, I've never run it at 100% speed) I'm guessing this clock can be easily overclocked with its stock cooler, you'd just need to keep the fan higher than average. I haven't tested all the high end games on it yet, I'll write more on this later. It has a 320 bit-rate memory interface, something that I was sad to see go in the 600 series.
Cons: I grabbed mine for $170. For how old this card is, It's awfully hard to get a hold of for a low price. I guess that really isn't a con, but it'd be nicer if they were more available. It doesn't have the ridiculous memclock that the 600's do, or the 200mhz higher core clock.
