Pros: Good price at the time, and decently fast drives
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Decent card, CrossfireX is a feature i use and like on this model. 4 way CF had very nice results on my i7. ATI or AMD as they are now preferred namewise, is updating drivers and correcting issues with drivers a lot faster. They are more comparable to Nvidia now in that regards.
3d mark Vantage: 4 way CF with i7 got me GPU 33.5k score on performance bench. On AMD 1090t i got about 27k gpu.
Cons: Cards are slightly larger than 2 slots, the screws on the heatsink stick to far out the back of the card. I bought 4 of these to CrossfireX and they dont fit properly between slots.
They dont overclock well at all for me either.
Missed physx since i was previously on GTX 295 w 260 physx.
Other Thoughts: Running 4 of these is a bit to much work since they don't fit right. However, 3 way is the best performance for price. After 3 the 4th card doesn't do much.
Note: if your using an AMD x6 or x4 i found in testing the 4th card had zero effect. This is due to the CPU bottle-necking. AMD firstname.lastname@example.org couldn't even get anything out of the 4th card in games. I get a very mild increase from 3 to 4 on my i7 @ 4.4ghz.
