Pros: Runs cool, takes everything I throw at it and chews it up and spits it back at me in Ultra setting glory. Skyrim has no problems anymore. Going from a GTX470 to this is an amazing step.
Cons: Expensive, but worth it. A little big if you don't have a large case like mine, HAF 922. Still have about 1.5 in of space before the HD cages. Still trying to find a game that would actually give the card a run for my money, have not found one yet.
Other Thoughts: I was kinda worried as I have always had a card that takes the hot air out of the case(reference coolers) instead of just getting it off the card and then spreading it in the case. This thing has not even seen 55C yet and I have used it up to 5 hours and that was with the furnace running and the room getting hot. Not worried now.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Creative Sound Blaster Audigy FX 5.1 PCIe Sound Card with 600 ohm Headphone Amp
Pros: Cheap. Runs Great. Quality sound.
Cons: Was'nt free.
Other Thoughts: Got this card to replace a 3 yr old Audigy SC that was giving me fits. Easy install, easy driver setup (get the newest from the website beforehand and skip the CD). great sounding off the bat. Avide gamer and this gives me no fits in anything and way cheaper than the top shelf stuff with almost no difference in sound that I can tell. If your an audiophile, you might be disappointed as it does ok with music, but with gaming it's great.READ FULL REVIEW
