Pros: Price, performance, noise, temperature, basically everything that matters.

Cons: It's huge! Seems to go out of stock very quickly.

Other Thoughts: This card is really nice. Performs better than a regular 7870 and can be overclocked to perform like a 7950 at stock. The could rename under the 7900 (7950 light or something) series if they wanted.

The card is running everything I've thrown at it (so far) at Ultra settings averaging 50 FPS or better (some games from two years ago I'm getting well over 60 FPS with every graphic detail I could possibly turn on enabled). I am not getting the coil whine that many people seem to be having an issue with. Like I noted above, the card is massive. I have a Coolermaster HAF 912, so I was able to remove a hard drive bay from the case to give it room to breathe a little. Card idles at 30 C and I haven't seen it go over 70 C while under heavy load, so that is a plus.

For the price of this card, it outperforms anything else in it's range. Great for budget builds - highly recommended!
