Pros: It's cheap, it can run new releases on optimum/high gloss everything, and it seems stable enough. Far cry 3 looks amazing on this card. It will comfortably run games at max graphics well above 30fps.
Cons: I had a 500watt psu that fried within a day of use after installing this card. It was old, but was functioning fine until this guy came along. I certainly don't believe a 400watt would do it. I have a 600 installed currently and it seems acceptable.
Also, the fan housing is plastic. It doesn't seem like a big issue, but this card runs really hot. If you don't have a case that stays cool, this is not the card for you. If you do, this will game amazingly on a budget.
