Pros: Cheap after rebate.
Cons: This card is mediocre at mining and suffers from periodic hardware errors. Gets 330 Khash/s at scrypt mining but with the hardware errors averages out to less than 300 work units. My sapphire 7850 gets a better WU rate, similar hash rate, and also draws less power.
Also, when I plugged this in as my main card, my display wouldn't work properly. I had to relegate it to second PCI-E slot and use another gfx card as my main card.
I suspect I could RMA this card but it's a hassle and I'm not sure they'd approve it anyways.
Pros: one stick performed perfectly. gigabyte setting in bios was easy. There's an automatic presetting that autoset to 9-8-9-28 for me :)
Cons: The other stick was bad. memtest86+ showed thousands of errors. I wasn't aware what bad memory could do. Now I know. Several months of OS crashing on me, random system freeze, and I thought it was the OS or something else entirely. Nope. it's the memory.
Other Thoughts: Price was decent. Hopefully GSKILL RMA goes smoothly.READ FULL REVIEW
Cons: Motherboard, like those on a few other reviewers computers, failed after several months. Dell will replace it but it's still a hassle.READ FULL REVIEW
