Pros: It was a great card while it lasted...

Cons: started to overheat after 7 months. I didn't OC or anything. I couldn't figure out why my computer was shutting down randomly. so I swapped video cards with my other gaming machine and I realized the fan wasn't spinning, and after 5 mins of gameplay, sure enough, the other machine shut down as well. Also, on top of the overheating, the video card stopped recognizing my second monitor. Monitor kept coming up with "no signal". after hooking up my Nvidia card, the second monitor popped right up. So either the second DVI port went out, or it just doesn't like my monitor (Acer AL2216W)

Other Thoughts: I've had a 9800gtx+ in my other machine for 4 years now, never had any issues. I've always been an Nvidia fan, but decided to be open-minded with this build and I built ATI. Never again! Drivers sucked too.
It's a shame, though, because I'm a huge fan of AMD processors. Wish they could get their video cards straightened out.
