Pros: Runs games very well. I play on a 30" display with 2560x1600 and still can max out just abotu every game and run fine. Is the same size if not a tad smaller then the 9800GTX it replaced

Cons: Price... I guess demand is high so why not. Doesnt work as well in 2s as my 9800GTX. I notice odd stuff like the screen will flicker when watching some movies (mp4).

Overall Review: All in all I think most folks will be happy with this. I would have liked to buy a 5970 but couoldnt even get my hands on one... Run with 8GB ram with a q6600 @ 2.8ghz or so and runs games awesome.

Works

Pros: Cheap - good stand

Cons: Bad viewing angle. No matter where / how you look at this thing you will never get even color due to its bad viewing angles.

Overall Review: I was going to buy the dell 30", I should have.
