Pros: Easy to set up and configure, lots of nice OC features ( don't use them my self ) Price is moderate. Running them in the SLI configuration is the way to go. I gave it 2 eggs because of the card failure ( see Cons ) if not this would have been 5 eggs.

Cons: 1 card died within 10 months. Big - VERY BIG !! I have the Antec 300 case with a different PSU 850W, if you plan on using these make sure you have the room. I had enough for a small TV card and that's it. Fans can be loud when you set them to manual at 100% even louder than my 4 120MM cooling fans in the case.

Other Thoughts: I bought 2 of these cards back in October of 2009, up until last week both had been flawless in the SLI configuration. They would handle pretty much anything I gave them. Last Friday night under normal (not over clocked ) conditions I was playing Battlefield Bad Company 2 and all of sudden the box just froze and wouldn't reboot. After pulling memory and checking the power supply ( Corsair 850TX ) I moved on to the video cards swapping them in and out to isolate the failure. Sure enough I had a bad card. I know these cards don't cost that much, but come on ! its not even 1 year. And believe me I run a stock box ( Asus P6T deluxe and 12 gigs of DDR3 OCZ Gold memory ).

I failed to register the card on PNY's site, trying tonight it rejected me because I waited to long. I'll try to contact support and set up a return if they will allow it. Its to bad really, this series card (though very big ) runs nice when its working.
