Pros: This has been a truly great video card for the money. A little long in the tooth now, but it keeps low temps, isn't too loud, and works like a champ.
Cons: The Grid game this card came with had copy protection on it which hosed my machines until I disabled it with shell extension viewer.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Memory overclocks up to 1520 stable at 12gb RAM, 8-8-8-24-59 timings (1 command). Works well with the Asrock x58 Extreme board, making an excellent low-cost OC solution for an I7-920 system.
Cons: There is alot of back and forth of what this RAM will do in a 12gb set (two of these kits). Some folks have said that the speed has to drop to 9-9-9-28-98, but this has not been the case with the two setups I've built with this memory.
Other Thoughts: Yes, the gold bling-bling is nice, and the memory easily fits under the Scythe Mungen II that squats over it.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Played Crysis with all settings maxed at ~30FPS. Also ran Batman visibly well.
Cons: Card would not allow my system to sleep (Windows 7). I swapped it out with my old 4870, and this problem went away. Also, I noticed that the package had already been opened when I got it. I got this off the shell-shocker deal 2 weeks ago, and it says retail, but this could be a possible re-furb... have no idea.
Also noticed some adhesive oozing out of the board on the side of the power plugs.
Other Thoughts: RMA for this card.READ FULL REVIEW
