Pros: Worked great when I was working
Very cool and quiet even at high loads.
Cons: Worked for about 6-8 months before artifacts started to appear and eventually stopped working outright. So, I sent it in for an rma.
Other Thoughts: I got this card as a birthday present and it worked very well for a longish amount of time. About two maybe three months ago now I sent it in for an rma to powercolor because of the problems listed above. Recently I received a response (the long wait was my own fault. I messed up the s/n on the website so I had to wait before sending it in) that the repair of my card was going to take a while and that powercolor was going to offer me a replacement card. Unfortunately even though their own warranty info states that replacement cards will be of equal or greater performance then that of the original card, the one they offered me was not. It was also older by about 3-6 months and had no where near the cooling abilities of this card. The one stipulation to the equal or greater deal was that it was based on availability. So apparently they have nothing in stock that can equal or out perform this card. In closing, I was never looking for a "free" new card, I like this one until it stopped working. It ran the games I play on high and did everything else I asked of it. I just wanted to be treated fairly. But when a company basically slaps me in the face with some phoney "offer" that they know no sane person would accept, I take offense. I will never buy another powercolor product nor will I recommend it to anyone I know.READ FULL REVIEW
