Pros: Relatively inexpensive, low power needs, most games run smoothly at high graphic levels
Cons: Occasional Skyrim crash
Other Thoughts: When it comes to video cards, I haven't owned an Nvidia card since 2006. I always felt like the GTX series was considerably overpriced and bulky in comparison to AMD's offerings. That was until the GTX 600 series. This particular card is perfect for someone who wants high graphics for a lower price point. I ran several games on the card within the first day of purchase at the highest settings that each game could run.
The list is as follows: Skyrim, Crysis 2, Batman: Arkham City, Sleeping Dogs, Starcraft II.
Most stayed at a very high frame rate, and I did not overclock the card. If you are looking for a video card and considering buying a model under 100 dollars, re-think that decision. Save another couple weeks, buy this card, enjoy.
Pros: Low Price, runs most modern games with a steady frame rate, very quiet
Cons: None thus far
Other Thoughts: If you're looking for a gaming card that can run most modern games without breaking the bank, this isn't a bad choice. I've had no issues with it so far, and can run Crysis on max settings, and Crysis 2 on what would be medium if the game used normal terms.
You won't be able to get the fancy PhysX support of an Nvidia Card, but if you don't care about such things don't worry.
