Pros: The card is an amazing card for the price, but really overall lacks the drivers to make it work properly with most mainstream games. I dock this card mostly due to my other thoughts section.

Cons: MultiGPU is not supported by WoW, etc. Tried different driver versions, also overclocking / shutting off cores and still had the same issue. Sent for RMA with a 285 GTX instead.

Other Thoughts: It's too bad that ATI's drivers and WoW itself do not support dual GPU's as well as most of the games that are mainstream out there. With settings on High in WoW, and the latest drivers / running driver cleaner I was getting horrific graphic glitches and bsod's. This could be fixed by disabling one of the GPU's, but what is the point in owning a card that has that ability and then not putting it to the test.
