Pros: I had no problems with the install, it was out-of-the-box perfect. But I suppose to be fair, it was on a brand new build. Used driver cd to get started, and they seemed ok, but I would highly recommend getting the latest drivers from ASUS. They updated with no problem. No crashes, is very stable. I really like the tweaking/monitoring software for this GPU. Also, this card is very quiet, even with the dual fans. But I think the biggest pro is that this card runs REALLY COOL. Medium graphics settings on games and it doesnt even break a sweat. High settings it starts to glitch a little on some games, but temps are still well within tolerance. Not too shabby for a mid range GPU. Very happy with it.
Cons: Biggest complaint was that the drivers for WinXP are horrible. Runs ok for basic stuff, but even low graphics settings on some games ruins the fun. Had major artifacts, but at least it never crashed on me. I guess there wasnt a lot of effort put into them since support for XP will be dropping soon anyway. Switched to Win7 and it runs perfectly.
Other Thoughts: I feel this GPU could be overclocked a little if someone felt they just had to do it. Just make sure the thing stays cool and you might be ok. But why? . . . no need . . . I am quite happy on the stock settings.READ FULL REVIEW
