Pros: This card is incredible. It destroys Crysis with every setting maxed at 1980x1200. It runs Crysis at playable FPS on high / medium settings at 5760x1200...Yup...crysis playable across 3 screens. Eyefinity makes triple monitor spanning a breeze and is something that needs to be seen to be appreciated.
This card decimates everything I have thrown at it at resolutions up to 5760x1200.
This joker is as future proof as you can get.
Power consumption is incredible.
You get what you pay for.
If you are in the market

Cons: Grey screen problems and banding issues have been reported on these cards, although I have not seen this for myself. There was a hotfix released a couple days ago that addresses this.

Price is pretty steep...But again...You get what you pay for with this card.

Card is really long. You should have a full tower.

Good luck finding one.

Other Thoughts: This is the best video card purchase I have made yet. I didn't expect much of an increase over the 280's in sli it replaced...boy was I wrong. This card is awesome.
