Pros: The pros of this grpahics card far surpasses the cons, mainly because there are no cons. It is overclocked to 675 core clock. 512mb memory, 32 streamers (help aid in all the processes the GPU undergoes, and is not assigned certin tasks, in other words the GPU assigns them to optimize the full pontential of the GPU). Runs very well in vista too.
Cons: None for me, but for those who have trouble with heat you need to make sure you have adequate cooling, which is a duh, but alot of people only run 1 fan and yo uneed more than that. [u]Also like the other guy above if you have a PSU thats realy high power then you dont need it, it was designed to run on your old system, so no need to upgrade your PSU. That is unless your running like 10 fans, and have a 3.2ghz dual core processor like me.[/u] Other Thoughts: Buy it, and then when the next pay check come in buy another, then show off to your 8800 GT and GTS bubbies what it can do and they will scratch there heads in disbelief.
