Pros: This card runs very cool and overclocks effortlessly. I've yet to play a game this thing can't max out at well over 60 fps at 1080p. This card is fantastic. Massive upgrade over my GTX 550 Ti. Very happy I went with this card. This thing will easily max Crysis 3 when overclocked, and won't break a sweat doing it.
Cons: The main con of this card is that the price has gone down considerably in the past month. This is great for new buyers, but I feel bummed that I payed 50 dollars more than I could have. One of those instances where a price guarantee from Newegg would be amazing. But alas, that's the way of technology.
The card is also large, but if you're looking to buy it, you probably already have a case that can handle it.
Pros: Accurate colors, bright and clear whites, very fast refresh rate, no ghosting, thin and lightweight, has decent viewing angles for a TN panel. I play a lot of Counter-Strike: GO, and this monitor works really well for shooters. It keeps up with any sudden movements or turns I make, and doesn't streak or have ghosting. It's fantastic. I sit 2 to 2 and a half feet away from the monitor, and the 1080p resolution looks great from this distance. No excessive pixelation or graininess. Games and movies all look absolutely fantastic.
Cons: Blacks are very dark grey, but they don't quite get down to a true black (to be expected with a twisted nematic panel). Viewing angles aren't amazing, but again, you have to expect that from this panel. The monitor is a little spendy, depending on where you buy it (Newegg has the best price of anyone, by far).
Other Thoughts: I've compared this monitor next to a 27 inch IPS Acer monitor, and liked the response time and natural colors of this monitor. If you want more saturated colors and wider viewing angles, pick an IPS panel. Otherwise, a standard TN panel still looks fantastic and will work really well for gaming.READ FULL REVIEW
