Pros: Very cool card. I mean that in both physical appearance and temperatures. The fan is surprisingly quiet even turned up to about 50% speed. Currently using in an eyefinity set up and works great, it more than satisfies my gaming needs.
Cons: The card itself is pretty big, which may be a hassle depending on your case size and motherboard layout. Be sure to take it's physical dimensions into account to ensure that you won't have any problems. Just like some of the other reviews on here, I too had some random restarts and bsods at first... But I fixed that issue. Please read the other thoughts portion of this review.
Other Thoughts: I had the bare minimum 500 watt psu and needed to use both adapters included with the card. After several restarts and crashes, I decided to stress test with furmark. 10 mins in and no problems. 15 mins in and bam, my psu died. I went out and got myself an antec 900 watt psu which already came with the necessary cables directly from the psu. THIS COMPLETELY FIXED MY BSODS. No need to underclock or any of the other solutions on here. Be sure to read instructions such as those saying not to use both included power adapters on the same line from psu and have either a really high quality 500 w psu or something much bigger. I've gone about 2 months now and not a single problem even after hours of tf2, dirt, wow,human evolution, and league of legends all on maxed out settings. I highly recommend this card. Awesome bang for your buck!READ FULL REVIEW
