Pros: Benchmarks I Ran On This Card (Everything Maxed Out)
Grid Auto Sport - 60 Avg FPS - 82c Max Heat
Thief - 66 Avg FPS - 88c Max Heat
Tomb Raider - 42 Avg FPS - 92c Max Heat
Just Cause 2 - 58 Avg FPS - 82c Max Heat
Company of Heroes - 36 Avg FPS - 80c Max Heat
Cons: As you can see above this card gets HOT! (In Skyrim and other less demanding games it stays around 65c)
Demands ALOT of power 350-400 watts
Needs one 8 pin power connector and one 6 pin (I would have like to have two of the same but its not a big deal)
Other Thoughts: I have this paired up with a FX-8320 and Corsair Vengeance RAM, my case is a corsair Air 540 so i have great cooling.
I upgraded from a Asus 7870 Crossfire setup and this card is anywhere from -5% to 35% Better or worse, depending on the game.

Red LED's All Over Board Look Sweet
