once i get another of these. left amd/ati last 2 video cards and will not go back. scores 12xxx in 3dmark with i7 2600k oc'd to 4.6ghz. picked it up for 480.00 with 20.00 mail rebate which is great since price went back up to 530.00
Cons: none. if you can afford a high end card like this one there are no cons.
Other Thoughts: will pick one more up when prices drop some more.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: would of had some if it worked out of the box. first experience with abs products.
Cons: comming from abs i figured this would be one of the best 1kw psu's out there for the money. thought wrong. been building computers for 10years now
Other Thoughts: sent mines back in for a refund. waste of my time. , and just this year have had 4 items fail out of the box. 1st was a msi 890fx motherboard-caught fire on first boot, 2nd is this psu, 3rd&4th are 2 gtx460's from evga dead with in 24hours. all of these with in the last 2months. must be just like they say "they don't build em like they used too!"READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: eats everthing i throw at it. wish drivers would work right, but this has been a problem of ati's/amd's for ages now. took 2days and acouple of six packs to finnally get it running without crashing.
Cons: needs to be xfired with hd5870 for additional performance, mines wont oc past 750core 1050mem with out artifacting. was going for broke and do a 5970 in quadfire but that doesnt work out too well, a triple cross fire set up will perform better. not really a con but, it still is the fastest single card out on the market right now. knocked an egg off due to junk drivers.
Other Thoughts: waiting on artic freezer heatsink, these things run hot, have to set fan on 45-50% if catalyst works half the time. really not an issue. i knew what i was getting into before i made the purchase. this card xfired with a hd5870 and a 4ghz cpu will keep up with any new card untill directx 12 releases with win8.
scores a 6300-6500oc on its own in 3dmark 11. 1090t at 4ghz,8gig 1333 ddr3 at 1600.
