Pros: I bought this card to build my first gaming rig. I studied computer networking through college and always dealt with computers from a business standpoint, never for gaming. I always used consoles to game, what a shame :( Anyhow, I have had this card for some time now and have to say, for the money, the card performs exceptionally well. It run's cool and looks cool at the same time. I ran wow at almost full setting's 8X AA etc. with about 40fps. I am now playing SW:TOR and can put the settings on high and get about 40fps. I am looking to find another one to upgrade to Xfire before moving on to another card.

Cons: At this point the only con is the fact that the card is a bit outdated. It is DX10 and most games are running DX11 by now. I can't take away from the card for this because in its time it was top notch.

Other Thoughts: For the price, this was a great pickup. I am hopeful that in Xfire I can run SW:TOR on Max settings and achieve 60fps.

I gave it 4 stars only because I don't feel that this card performed as well as some of the other card's in the price range, albeit a great card. It was still a great pickup for 150.
