Pros: 1:Fast! It runs all of my games 60+fps with ultra-high setting 1400x900.
2:Quiet. I cannot hear the fans from this card. Sapphire really did a good job the cooling solution.
3:Runs cool. 28C-34C on idle and 60C with full load with my Corsair 750D case. The temperature is various depending on the case or room temperature.
My old NZXT case which has bad airflow still manage to keep this card only 2-3C higher.
4: Cheap. I bought this for $180 after rebate. This is way cheaper than Nvidia card with the same performance.
Cons: Don't have much to complain, maybe the case material. It is made out of plastic, but I guess most of the fan/case is plastic so it isn't really a con.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a superb product with good price and performance. People always complain about AMD card regarding their quality. I don't have any problem so far. I had a 4870 from HIS and it is still running fine. This is the second card from AMD and first time trying Sapphire. So far so good. Highly recommend people to buy this.READ FULL REVIEW

Somewhat cheap. I spent 53 dollars on this.
Cons: Really nothing. Works really well.
Other Thoughts: For around 50 dollars, I can't really complain much. It does its job. Great simple looking.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: For 120 dollars, I cannot complain more. This processor runs everything fine (including most of the games I play). This is the first time I bought AMD processor and so far I am happy about it.
Cons: Few cons I wanted to point out:
1: This processor does get hot when I am gaming. 32C on idle and 76C when gaming. My room temperature is not hot and i opened the side panel of my case (based on stock cooler). Highly recommend to get a aftermarket cooler like cooler master 212 EVO.
2: It draws 125Watt which is higher than Intel Chip. AMD needs to improve the efficiency on their chips.
Other Thoughts: I hope AMD will continue their FX line in the future. For people who does not have a high budget to build a gaming pc, this is definitely a good choice to pick up.READ FULL REVIEW
