Pros: faster, quitter, sexier, and more sturdy than my msi tfiii 7950 (and that's saying a lot. I loved that card). Looking at the pictures doesn't do this beast justice, its a work of art. It will max out any game on the market @1080p.
Cons: Nvidia still hasn't fixed the issue with 1080p monitors over HDMI. still doesn't default full rgb,hence nerfing the colors on your monitor. There was a simple fix by doing a registry hack, but be warned if you have never owned an NVidia card before. This doesn't count as an egg off because ASUS out did themselves with this card, and NVidia's driver problems should blemish this.
Other Thoughts: pair this with an fx 8350 and be happy gamer :)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: +Mine has a 7970 PCB, Over clocks like a beast
+looks very sexy
+stays cool under stress
+7950 = best bang for your buck GPU that I have ever seen released in terms of current power, and having a future proof card (if there ever was such a thing, this is it) because of it extreme memory performance and 3gb of gddr5. Most gpus that lose their potency in game is due to not enough vram or too slow of vram or if it doesn't support the current dx (insert number here) because vram lag is the worst lag because if your card has 1 gb vram, and the game is running at 60 fps and using 900mb of vram, as soon as you go over the 1gb of vram, your frames will TANK HARD. Dx 9 lasted for 7 years in its prime, and is still supported today. DX 11 is the new DX 9. Look for this 3 GB of vram to be sufficient for at least 4-5 years. You'll be running games at high to ultra for the next 3 years EASY, then if you can live with medium-low settings, your looking at this thing lasting you 7+ years. and all this for $300...
Cons: - fans get loud after 65%
- I had to rma mine due to premature fan failure after just 3 months of usage and a loose heatsink. RMA took only 3 weeks even though I had to ship it cross country.
Other Thoughts: My temps after playing an hour of BF3 are roughly 66-71 C with fans hitting no louder than 55%. Mind you, this is in a mid tower case (which is well ventilated, but that only gets you so far) where this card is so long, that the hot air that it pumps out gets caught underneath the dvd drive bay, and recirculated back into the card. So, if this thing was in a full tower case, you should be running about 5-10C cooler. Im not complaining what so ever though. 70 C with only 55% fan speed means I cant even hear the card over case fans, and 70C isn't even hot for this GPU. They can comfortably handle 85-90C.READ FULL REVIEW

acer hits another home run with an affordable and feature rich product.
Cons: -collects dust fast on its surface
-collect finger prints easily
-no remote and navigating the settings is not easy
Other Thoughts: This is the best value in a monitor that I have ever seen in terms of build quality, features, and looks. Amazing deal, if you are gamer/hd streaming enthusiast looking to enter the FULL hd world, look no further than this.READ FULL REVIEW
