Pros: - Price dropped quickly and became affordable
- Good performance for the cost

Cons: - Black screens during 2D activities
- ASUS support is notoriously terrible

Other Thoughts: Exchanged this card a couple of times already, but when this most recent card started acting up, ASUS basically plugged their ears and acted like nothing was wrong. Eventually sent it in for RMA under a supervisor's guarantee that the unit would be replaced, and instead the repair facility reflashed the bios (been there, done that, doesn't solve anything), and sent it back. If you're reading this review because you're considering buying this card used (since it's discontinued), DON'T, it will only be a huge headache down the road.

Pros: I managed to snag two of these cards and got lucky with both being 8+6 pin 7970 PCBs. They are stock boost clocked to 960 core and 1250 memory, so I don't know where the MSI support tech responding to reviews is getting that none exist. I asked MSI for a UEFI GOP bios and permission to redo the thermal paste after seeing high temps, and got both. Secure/Fast boot is great and crossfire is very smooth on the latest catalyst beta.

Cons: The price goes up and down quite a bit, as do the included items. Having to redo the thermal paste is not something I expected.

Other Thoughts: If you can get them at the price you want, you'll outperform a titan at a very small fraction of the price.
