Pros: This card is a great value to me. My Radeon HD 4870 served me very well but the fan failed the card was finished. This new card was less expensive and is a superior card to the 4870. I noticed the difference right away while playing SW:TOR. The detail is much improved and the game looks fantastic on the highest settings.

This card also requires less power than others that I have owned. It is a quiet card as well. The big test for me after my fan failed on my previous card was to test the temperature after several hours of gaming. After playing SW:TOR for about three hours on the highest graphic settings the card temperature was 50c. Not bad at all.

Cons: None so far!

Other Thoughts: This is totally petty but I would have preferred a rebate or discount instead of a voucher for a $50 game that I will never even use. If you want to give me value then do it directly and not with a free optional game that I would never have heard of had I not bought the card. Again that is no big deal and has nothing to do with the card itself. Just my "other thoughts" as it were. :-)
