Pros: Card maxed out 3DMark 3D test in Windows 8.1. Easy install. Fan noise not noticeable in midsize room. SOLID CAPACITORS WILL NOT BULGE! I have replaced my share of mylar capacitors on video cards.
Cons: Read Comments for drivers.
Other Thoughts: I read the comments before I got my card about all kinds of driver issues. Here is what to do if you own an AMD HD card and you are upgrading. 1 Download and install the latest Catalyst for the newer card while you have the old card in. Don't worry the payload carries the drivers for the whole HD series. Once you install the new card your screen will come up fine and then re install Catalyst from your original download and it will update the driver.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Very affordable for GDDR5 with extra cooling.
Cons: Dual slot can be a cramp for some of today's smaller mother boards.
Other Thoughts: I've seen a lot of issues about drivers. This won't be applicable to everyone however if you have a lower end AMD HD series card installed you should be able to change the card out and have the drivers install from the latest Catalyst download installed previous to physical hardware change.READ FULL REVIEW
