Pros: It was a great card while it lasted. Fan noise isn't as bad as others make it seem. Great FPS in almost every game but Total Rome 2.
Cons: So my significant other bought this for me during Thanksgiving sales week and it was given to me on Xmas. Yea I knew what Santa was going to give me and I was excited.
Now fast forward two weeks and I'm getting strange red dots artifacts throughout while I'm playing games. The screen tears just watching an Netflix or iTunes movie. The screen tearing is so bad, I can't stand to watch any video on my PC anymore. Within the past week it has gotten so bad that I'm noticing the same errors while gaming. Same lines screen tearing at the top and bottom.
Any browser I use becomes a strobe light if I scroll down and than back upward. The browser blinks very crazy.
I lost my XFX customer number SO I CANT RESET MY PASSWORD TO GET SUPPORT! Sorry I'm yelling but their site is extremely frustrating.
Overall Review: I've built 3 PC's for my family members thanks to newegg. I have never had a problem with any part or component before. I do blame myself for choosing this card. I should of read the refund/exchange policy better. According to their policy I can't even exchange this card.
2 weeks after Xmas and I now have a expensive paperweight. I still love my wife, it was the thought that counts.
The only thing OC'd was the fan curve.
