Pros: Comes from the factory @ 700MHz with a decent overclock (75MHz), but I am currently running stable at 775MHz. The Zalman HSF keeps the temp at a relatively cool 55C, which is absolutely fine in a graphics card. The memory doesn't have any sort of heat dissipation, but I still have it overclocked to 1050 MHz with no heat problems at all. I was lucky enough to get it for $85 with the $30 rebate, but I would still buy it at the current price.
Cons: Can't disable ATi PowerPlay from the Catalyst driver.
Other Thoughts: Not an issue with the card itself, but still a minor concern: ATi PowerPlayer auto-throttles the clock speed when switching from 2D to 3D environments. In some games (notably Borderlands) it causes unstable drivers and eventual crash after roughly 20 minutes. A fix for this is to get a 3rd party utility and manually clock the card (even stock clock speed if desired) thus disabling PowerPlay. ATi's Catalyst Control Center allows you to overclock but it will *not* disable PowerPlay.READ FULL REVIEW
