Pros: First off this has to be one of the most well packaged computer part I have ever seen in my life. It comes in a very nice box that has full padding. The card is sitting in a perfect cutout almost like a guncase.
The card itself was in polished perfect condition out of the box. I am running this card with a i7 920 and I was able to run crysis on very high settings with no laggy frames.
XFX drivers work awesome, I am running Win 7 Ultimate and there hasnt been a single issue running this card.
Cons: I have a thermaltake element pro case and this card pretty much fit wall to wall installing it. No way it could even be half an inch longer or it wouldnt fit.
Other Thoughts: When I booted up my machine for the first time it didnt recognize the card at all, only vga standard. Once windows got done with all its updates I poped in the disc and chose register and get direct drives off their site.
Drivers installed really fast and then my computer reset with full detection of this card.
Win 7 performance rating gives me a 7.8 out of 7.9 without any overclocking.
I used to be an Nvidia fan but after changing from a GTX295 to this card. I think ATI has earned my respect and loyalty.
Maybe one day I will buy another to crossfire but seeing as I threw crysis at it full settings with ease I have no need to get a second at this time.
Pros: It does its job, powered up my machine. It has enough power cables to SLI or Crossfire graphic cards. It runs pretty quiet.
Cons: The power cables are long, I have a Thermaltake Element case and the cables have so much excess length you basicly have to loop them to get them to fit. I tried adjusting the wires abit but there is so many since its not modular. It looks somewhat sloppy inside my case now because of how the power cables fill every gap of space in my case.
Other Thoughts: I cant take off a star for the power cables being too long, because I know with another case someone might say they are perfect or even too short.READ FULL REVIEW
