Pros: Runs quiet even when the fans are at 60% speed
Runs cool even on full load (stock fan is great at expelling heat)
Very powerful for the price of $229!
Very easy to install
Would fit even in a mini atx case
Cons: Only has 2 DVI ports, would be nice if it had 3, but 2 is still very amazing, especially for $229!
If a game is unoptimized or nvidias drivers are not to good the card can reach 80c (only happens on drivers 320.18 while running fc3)
Other Thoughts: When this card is on idle it run anywhere from 31-35c. And while on full load about 61-72c
Runs Battlefield 3 on ultra at 1080p with 60-80 fps.
Runs The Witcher 2 at 1080p on ultra with 60-71 fps.

My systems specifications;
Core i5 3450, 3.1 ghz (3.4 ghz with turbo boost)
8gb ddr3 1600mhz RAM
3 1080p 22 inch monitors
725w power supply
2, 2tb HDD
Antec eleven hundred case
Pros: For $140, it's an amazing GPU. Bought this to replace my Radeon 7570.
Plays BF3 on high at 50-60 FPS.
Skyrim on high at 50-60 FPS.
Torchlight 2 Max at 60 FPS
Crysis on high at 50-60 FPS.
Easy to install, quiet, low power (uses about 108 watts at full use)
Cons: Drivers that come with it are very horrible. Catalyst 12.4 played all my games perfectly, but when in a browser while streaming video or photos, it would cause the screen to glitch out and flicker a lot. Download the catalyst 12.6, or 12.8 from the AMD site.
Other Thoughts: I don't know why AMD recommends a 500 watt PSU. Maybe because they are lots of poorly made PSU's out there, but my card runs fine on this rig;
i5 3450 quad core processor (3.1 ghz)
460 watt PSU
Radeon 7770 1gb
