Pros: I was one of the lucky ones to get it before the price jumped a bit. This card is amazing. Currently running two of these in SLI. The 5870/5970 will beat these in max FPS, but during load these keep the frames much smoother than the competition.

Cons: Young drivers. Not really a con, because they can only get better. The price jumped, but only 10 bucks. Having them already and seeing what they're capable of I'd have paid $400 for them.

Overall Review: I wouldn't believe the hype about heat. They run hot, but they're made to. If you're investing this much money in a GPU get a case with good airflow. In SLI these handle a 23% overclocks, handle like beasts and peak out at 83/74c for top and bottom. Thats over 20 degrees below max rating and only 65% fan.
