Pros: What a great purchase! This is by far one of the best purchases I've done in months. I can honestly say that I see very little difference between high end cards and this one, when playing on high settings. I only saw a little decline in FPS when I set the video settings on highest. Because of its exceptional performance, I find it hard to consider this card a budget card as others have pointed it out to be. I can't wait to try SLI on this! -Exceeded expectations -I immediately felt the difference after upgrading my PC from a Radeon HD 6850 -Didn't have to rob a bank in order to afford it -Runs quiet -Runs cool (40-45 C on heavy gaming) -Extremely beautiful aesthetics -Doesn't consume too much power -Made me fall in love with PC gaming once again

Cons: For some reason, I don't like its size. I wish it was bigger. The card is only ~5 inches long. he extra length is just the fan. Maybe it's just me but it looks (emphasis on LOOKS) a little handicapped since it's not the full size. I wish the power connector was on the end and not on the side.

Overall Review: I'll be playing WoW Pandaria and Starcraft 2 Heart of The Swarm with this graphics card, for the most part. -WoW: I set everything on ultra and it still does not drop below 59 FPS. It feels very smooth. -SC2: I currently have it set on high--not ultra. Although it still seems to work fine on ultra, I've experienced one or two graphics hiccups. It's nothing very significant and definitely doesn't affect gameplay; but I'm a compulsive perfectionist and I have a hard time concentrating on the game when this happens. -Diablo 3: Exactly the same comments as Starcraft 2
