Pros: Runs Mass Effect 3 at 5760x1080 pretty well, averaging 40 fps, though I do experience president screen tearing on one screen, though that's a fairly minor issue and could be the card, the drivers for eyefinity or the monitor, or any combination there of.
Quiet as it needs to be, I've never heard it over my CPU fan, which is just the stock fan provided with the hyper 212+.
Runs cool, even when overclocked by 150 mhz, peaks at 61 in extended gaming or running unigine heaven with tessellation on.
Cons: Screen tearing on the left screen in an eyefinity setup no matter which of the the I use, Asus vh242h. I'm not putting all the blame on the video card, though I'm fairly sure that a second card would solve that issue, just gotta work up the cash again.
Other Thoughts: Went from a q6600 and an 8800gtx to an i5 3550 and this, and I an still blown away after almost two months, definitely a good buy, will probably spring for another in 5 months or so for more power and more screen space for work.
Computer is used for gaming and 3D modeling about equally and does both very well, the 3GB vram and powerful core make this a great card for real time rendering and gpu based raytrace renders.
Pros: Great screens, bought 2 to go with one of the same model I have had for about 2 years now. Good color, no stuck/dead pixels or anything like that. Used the speakers in the screens as the front speakers in my 7.1 surround sound settup too.
Cons: Not too sure about the lifespan of the screens backlight, but no problem with the two I got (explained in other thoughts)
Other Thoughts: The two new screens were way brighter than the one I already had and the colors were warmer (more red), and I cant seem to get them to match without some significant messing around with the controls in windows. not a big deal though.
Also, I'm noticing some screen tearing while gaming, looks like I need to grab a second video card to keep up with all that screen space, one 7950 just doesn't quite cut it.
