Pros: UNBELIEVEABLE! This is the first powerful gaming rig I've really ever built for myself and I went all out. Core i7 Extreme, 6gb high perfomance ram, Evga x58 motherboard, 256gb SSD and so on. The card ran great for two weeks... I had settings maxed out on everything. it came with a coupon for Dirt2 on Steam which I downloaded and was BEAUTIFUL
Cons: About two weeks in, everything seems great. I start getting rid of all the boxes, and I cut them up to mail in my rebate UPC's. Later that SAME day, I'm playng a game when I get hit with the dreaded grey screen I've heard so much about. I power down the machine and it's dead, no boot. Need to use an old card. With no packaging I cn't return to Newegg so I try to reach the manufacturer... don't even bother calling. I got my RMA number and sent them the card, and no I have to wait 2-4 weeks... if i get a working replacement in a timely manner I will be happy as can be.
Other Thoughts: I know cards go bad, and that it happens, but i am disappointyed that the turnaround time for RMA's is so long and that HIS does not have any way for me to track my RMA status... when you cough up $700 for a video card and then have to send it off to a place with little more than an email it can be a little nervewracking.READ FULL REVIEW
