Pros: Nice card, quite and easy to install.

Cons: There are a couple of things. 1. On the websites and not only NewEgg, it says it needs a 400 watt power supply minimal (12v rail needs to be at a minimal of 24A). However, when you look at the box, it says it needs 450 power supply minimal. I contacted tech support and they assured me that 400 is what it needs with the 12v rail having a minimal of 24A. 2. As the previous customer reported, it says it can run 3 independent monitors. I purchased 2 HDMI monitors just so I could take advantage of the HDMI ports. When you connect both HDMI, it shows up as only a single monitor. You can connect a monitor using DVI to give you the "3rd" monitor. I contacted their tech support on that as well. I was advised that they were looking into the informaiton on their website stating the 3 independent monitors. The only issue that is troublesome for me is that if I do full screen for a video, I don't like the break between monitors.

Overall Review: Other then the two issues mentioned as cons, it is a nice video card. I don't think it is a scam per say, but just be aware you don't get 3 independent monitors. I unfortunately purchased a new power supply, new monitors and the video card and I could have gone cheaper and just purchased 2 video cards instead of the one.
