Pros: This video card is absolutely brilliant - when it's working. The display is so crisp and it astounds me the quality of the monitors and details when things are moving smoothly

Cons: But to why I only give it two stars. The main reason I give it two stars is because 1) it's fairly loud when you're trying to game, but that's not horrendous and is expected. And 2) I have the latest drivers, and I've already RMA-ed it, but I am STILL having a lock up whenever I game. It works fine for the day to day, but anything I try to play, I can't even make it to an hour before my computer freezes up. I have to perform a hard reboot in order to resolve it.

There really doesn't even seem to be a reason for it to lock up. With the latest drivers, GPU usage spikes every now and then, but it doesn't stay at 100% or anything like that. The temperature never rises above 60 degrees (celsius). And the auto fan feature isn't very intuitive. I would imagine it's supposed to adjust on it's own, but it doesn't. So I'm stuck monitoring VGA through MSI Afterburner, but it STILL crashes on me. It's incredibly frustrating.
