Pros: Amazing card. Strix cooler is top notch. Plays all my games at 1080p ultra without breaking a sweat.
Cons: None for the product - read other thoughts.
Other Thoughts: This is the second time I have purchased an ASUS branded product and not received my rebate. The first one went unanswered for a ASUS VN248H-P. This time I had the GPU shipped to a different address due to the fact I was unable to be home at my apartment. The rebate was denied again. ASUS is a world class brand, but unfortunately due to this happening again I am done with ASUS and I am done with Newegg. If they cant communicate to eachother that this account was the actual purchase account, who knows what else they can screw up.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Extremely lightweight - easy to install by yourself. Instructions are clear. Holds my Sharp 60" LC-60LE450U without a problem. Extremely flush to the wall. Coming from a $700 Bello stand that held my 2008 model Samsung LCD this thing is light years ahead. Cannot believe I waited this long to wall-mount. 20 Bucks!!!
Other Thoughts: It is a bit tricky to use the bottom security screws but it can be done. Included levels are very nice and the HDMI cord is seriously beefy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Incredibly cool and quiet even using the stock cooler. Going from an OC'd Core 2 Duo E8400 @4.05ghz to this is honestly night and day. The architecture updates are where its at. Using this for Adobe Creative Suite and some gaming as well and it is crazy! If you are holding onto your old Core 2, this is the generation to upgrade too. The price is too good.
Other Thoughts: I do not use the integrated graphics so I cannot tell you what the performance is like. Between this and a GTX 760 you can build a very solid budget workstation/gaming machine. I also would recommend doing some hard research on whether you need hyperthreading or not. While it is a nice feature the majority of software does not scale past 2 cores well, let alone 4 cores. If you don't need the threads get this chip.READ FULL REVIEW
