Pros: Got this for xmas. Worked right out of the box. Lots of features.
Cons: Worked great until it didn't. Well it still technically works, but 2 of the memory slots won't recognize during post, so no dual channel functionality. Disappointed, but I guess I've been lucky up until now with parts not failing on me.
Other Thoughts: System Specs:
Cpu: Amd 965 be
Ram: G.skill f3-12800CL7D-8GBXH
Psu: Antec hcg 900
Vga: Gtx 570
Pros: Handled everything i could throw at it exceptionally well. Overclocked about 15-20% with ease, considering it was factory oc.
Only required a 500W PSU.
Great value at the time.
Cons: Forgot to send in the MIR lol.
Other Thoughts: Purchased as part of my first self made system, saw lots of reviews touting asus, msi, and evga, but decided to take a chance on a lesser known brand.
No regrets, upgraded to a Galaxy GTX 570.
Pros: Installed in an ASUS Crosshair V, bottom slot. Surprisingly cool for being choked by the psu, even when overclocked.
As with most 570's doesn't overclock especially well (google 'Have you killed a 570').
Handles vanilla games like a champ, dx9 games with max settings usually at 60 fps (w/ vsync), dx11 @ max settings 30+ fps.
Rebate handled by 4myrebate (Mailing address in CA, US), chose the 'instant' rebate for $45. Received $45 pre paid Amex 3-4 weeks later.
Cons: As mentioned by others, the case and fan housing are plastic and kind of flimsy. If handled and installed by the edges of the board itself not an issue.
One of the few cards not offered with Nvidia's Batman deal, but the pricing seemed to reflect that.
Other Thoughts: Originally had an Antec 500 watt psu when I first purchased this card. It ran, but anything too intensive would crash out. Upgraded to the Antec 900 hcg, no problems since.
Previous card was a Galaxy GTX 460 GC, got great value out of that card, looking forward to more from this company.
Definitely looking to pick up another one of these cards for SLI.
