Pros: - Best price for the performance
- The free games are a nice bonus
- Fast delivery, packed very carefully and arrived in great shape
- MSI seems like a high quality product
- AMD software provides a lot of options to optimize your GPU card
Cons: - The dual 8-pin power connectors are goofy. My PSU power daisy chain had 6+2 and a 6 pin plugs. So I had to buy a 6:8 pin adapter for the second connection to the same power bus
- This is a BIG card. I'm new to video cards, and the size of the card wasn't obvious. It just barely fit into my Dell XPS tower - almost needed a hammer and I used some of my special words.
- AMD software provides a lot of options to optimize your GPU cards :-). I'm new to PC gaming and GPU cards, so it's a bit bewildering. I chose the stock "gamer" configuration, so I think I'm good.
Overall Review: - Yes I would recommend this card to people with large towers
- I wish it only required a single PSU connection or came with an adapter
