Pros: Good card from any older PC, my friends Dad needed a new Video Card and this puppy fit the bill perfectly. His HD4850 had lasted him for quite some time and finally started to give out when he went from Vista to Se7en, so this should keep him going until he decides to upgrade to Windows 8 in about 10 years.
Cons: None as of yet
Other Thoughts: Did not have a 6-pin connector, but that is just something of note, not a con in any way.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Have purchased 3 of these for use in our Office as our machines needed to able to have Dual Monitors running. The machines we use are pretty old and they all had Zero issues with these cards.
They weren't purchased for gaming, but I have given them a test with DotA 2, Rust and NFS Rivals and they performed very well in all, heat started to be an issue as it is passively cooled.
Cons: -None so far.
Other Thoughts: Make sure your case has some spare room around the area your card is going, the heat sinks are on the bigger side as they are passively cooled, in one rig I had to remove one "Fin" from the heat sink in order for it to clear the CPU cooler.
In the rig I am using I have it setup with a 80mm fan pulling air from the side of my case and exhausting it directly on the heat sink, keeps temps at very reasonable levels.
Pros: Upgraded from onboard video to this card about 6 months ago, and so far it has been great! Handles all my game at 1080p with high to ultra settings in certain games.
Can drive 3 monitors with very little taxing on the card. Played GRiD 2 for 3+ hours in an Eyefinity setup and was great, got a little hot after that amount of time but that is to be expected driving a 3 monitor gaming setup off a semi-low end Video Card.
Cons: -Runs a little warm when under stress.
-Doesn't wake me up and give a kiss in the morning.
Other Thoughts: I keep my fan setting at a constant 100% and it isn't all that loud, although my Corsair H80i runs louder than it as my CPU is overclocked from 2.8Ghz to 3.8Ghz and can still go higher.READ FULL REVIEW
