Pros: It was decently priced, great cooling and, when it works smoothly, works incredibly well.

Cons: I get the dreaded "____ display driver has stopped responding" event at least once a day. In Windows 7 x86/x64 this typically crashes only the game. In Windows 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 preview it crashes the entire system.

ASUS GeForce 9600 GSO DirectX 10 EN9600GSO/DI/512MD3/V2 512MB 128-Bit GDDR3 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros: Good card for the money, 96 stream processors instead of the dummed down 64 on most 9600GSO cards is a nice touch.

Cons: VERY large, somewhat hot.

Other Thoughts: Check the placement of your motherboards south bridge fan/heatsink. If your board usually runs hot and your south bridge heatsink/fan is below this card it will only get hotter. Have some extra fans around because you'll need them. Speedfan is a nice, free tool if you need to check your temps.
