Pros: The custom fans do a great job of cooling the card.
Nice to have a stock overclock which is factory supported.
Good gaming performance.
Cons: I wish it had another DisplayPort output instead of the single-link DVI port.
Other Thoughts: I upgraded from a GeForce 210 with 512 MB of DDR2 to this, and my computer felt like a totally different machine when I launched games - it was like going from a PS1 to a PS3.
It is easy to overclock this card past the settings out of box.
In all honesty this is all the graphics card you should need if you are running a single monitor. I am playing Crysis 2 and Battlefield 3 on a Dell 3008WFP running at native 2560x1600 resolution and framerates are 70+ FPS with maximum settings. Very happy with the card.
Pros: Works as it should - adds more memory.
Can speed up computers with Intel HD Graphics
Inexpensive compared to others
Cons: Price still high.
Other Thoughts: The memory works great in my ThinkPad T430. If you have a computer with Intel HD Graphics, and you're currently running a single channel of RAM, you will see a big increase in framerate with a dual channel setup. CineBench 11.5 went from 11.27 FPS to 18.9 FPS.
As well, this is Corsair memory, so I'd trust their quality and warranty a bit more than some of the more generic offerings.
I got it for $93 after an instant rebate. Watch out for these deals on RAM, they can save you alot.
Only complaint is of course, RAM prices in general are high and haven't come down.
