Pros: It can handle almost anything you can throw at it. Be it games, heavy textures on AutoCAD, whatever... the card will make it happen on your screen.
Cons: Card can get hot if used for long periods on heavy graphics causing a BSOD. Stock fan does not seem powerful enough to handle the heat produced by the card. If you have a full ATX case, make sure you have some fans working with the VC fan to enhance airflow. (note: some driver upgrades have made this issue a bit less common but it still happens once in a while). BSODs are not that frequent but can be very annoying in the middle of a game.
Other Thoughts: Overall, the card is really good. I'd give it 5 eggs if it wasn't for the heat issue that, although does not happen very often, it will make you mad that happens while you are gaming. I managed to reduce the amount of BSODs by having the case fans assist the VC fan. Nvidia driver updates seem to also help with this issue a bit.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Excellent memory for XP/Vista based systems.
Cons: Absence of markers or serials that would allow to identify which memory goes with its pair if they get mixed.
Other Thoughts: As above, memory is great if installed properly. If you mix the pairs by any chance, you system won't boot. And the fact that there are no marks or serial number to match them makes them very hard to distinguish. You would need to mix and match until your system works.READ FULL REVIEW
