Pros: I just upgraded from a 8800gt and although i was waiting for for the 5850 to come down in price im incredibly happy to have waited for this card. Its got incredibly low temperatures even when i OC'ed it further and its even quieter then my dvd drive. On load it doesnt even go over 60C and idle it sips power and stays cool. Reviews on some sites also showed the 768mb model in SLI overtaking the 5970 in some benchmarks so this is definately a price/perfomance bargain and i will be looking to SLI the 1gb version in the future. Get this card.
Cons: Wish i had money for 2.
Overall Review: If you want to OC the card further make sure to download the latest Afterburner software to unlock the voltage and the new beta drivers increase fermi performace further on alot of titles.
Pros: Booted up with zero problems. everything's working fine. overclocking the cpu was a breeze. Fantastic amount of features for the $$. Upgrading from a q6600 and ip-35 pro. onboard sound is probably better then my old audigy 2 so probably will ditch it.
Cons: no ide connection for my burner. might as well upgrade to sata anyway
