Pros: After reviewing some higher end models, and debating on how much I wanted to dump into the last piece for my "Budget pro gamer" build, this was an excellent choice. Clock speeds, software & hardware are excellent.
Some more expensive cards ($250.00+ USD) have 300-400MHz more clock speed, or as much as 3GB more of GDDR5, or mix and match 256-bit interface, but this card still works great @ $95.00 USD (what I paid after rebate and sale), and came with a $40 game that I wanted anyways.
So far it has worked GREAT with every current AAA+ title I own. If I'm not maxing FPS, I'm staying well above 45 on Ultra with games like Bioshock Infinite, Skyrim (loaded up with gfx mods), Red Faction: Armageddon, Cowadoody, CS:GO, DotA 2, etc.!
Cons: I can often hear it humming away, when otherwise my system was totally silent. Recommend a strong PSU for this beast; it made my old card look rather wimpy.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Excellent PSU for the price. I've finished my "budget" pro-gamer build, and have tested with games like Skyrim (on Ultra, with some heavy duty graphic mods), Far Cry 3, Red Faction, CS:GO, Call of Duty, DotA 2, etc. and this PSU is able to effectively power my CPU and gfx card.
Very pleased. FYI: Paid less than $550 for my build, for all pieces including cords, and any extra fans.
Cons: Maybe an easier way to deal with excess cords? Although my Rosewill case has very nice brackets and pockets to tuck these cords in - it's still very annoying situating everything to not hit some of my FANS.READ FULL REVIEW
