Pros
-Great performance at an affordable price
-Matches my Mobo and Ram colours
-Good overclocker, theoretically
Cons
-Fans are loud when at full load
Summary
After the mail-in rebate, which was received only this week, it came to about $226, which was a great price for lower end enthusiast performance. The next card up, the 7950 from Gigabyte, MSI, ASUS, SAPPHIRE(brands I am comfortable with; 3 year warranty except for Sapphire, which is 2 years) was on average about $280 at the time, if I recall.

Like most of the enthusiast AMD Radeon 7000 series cards, based on reviews, this one is an overclocking champion, even with some more headroom above what MSI has already set.

In the future, I'll be testing to see how fast I can OC it. I will be careful to provide enough cooling so that the fans never generate that annoying sound at full speed.

Pros
great graphics, easy install
Cons
none
Summary
It can play any game I put to it. Far Cry3 is great. I haven't benchmarked my system but it's all new MSI and intel stuff. I don't think the card is noisy, it's not gotten hot enough to crank the dual fans up and I let it auto run with a slight over clock. For the price I think it's a great deal and it looks really good. All the reviews I have read on the net were quite positive. I had no install issues so I don't understand why anyone else would. Maybe they aren't geek enough to know how to do a proper install? You can pay more for a card but is it really required,,,,,,I don't think so.

Follow-up. I've had this card for a couple months now. Still no problems,,,runs fine. I think if anyone is having issues they should look to a bottleneck in other areas of their system.

Pros
Cooler is phenomenal and keeping temps low.
Quiet (Can't hear it over case)
Looks sweet
Cons
Massive driver conflicts
Drivers constantly crash
Have to underclock to run games
Summary
I picked this card up based on online reviews being over the moon about it, and it was on sale. First time I dropped it in I was greeted by massive tearing across the desktop which would not go away unless I uninstalled Catalyst Control Center from my system.

I then ran into issues where adobe flash would cause the drivers to crash when opening a video unless I hovered my mouse over the current tab and shut it down quickly. If I didn't it required a restart to recover.

Now to game performance, this card comes factory overclocked out of the box, which one would assume would increase game performance. Not for me, every title I loaded up showed the GPU at 100% usage and the game would chug along at 15-20fps from Farcry 3, Battlefield 3, MoH: Warfighter to Dragon Age: Origins and Dragon Age 2. I found undoing the factory overclock relieved the gpu usage issue but defeated the purpose of buying a video card that is designed to be overclocked.

I have tested this card with 12.8, 12.10, 12.11 Beta 8 and 12.11 Beta 11. 12.8 is the only driver that this card will work on my system without these issues, but any game released after August runs unbearably bad if at all.

I exchanged my first card for another one hoping it was a flaw with the card. However the second one behaves identically.

I will be returning this card on the 19th and picking up the "XFX Radeon HD 7870 Double D" like I should have in the first place. I've had 3 XFX cards (4850, and dual 5850's in crossfire), and they all ran without flaw. I should have known better than to be tempted by the cooler.

8GB corsair Vengeance DDR3-1600

Pros
Fast, cool, nice to look at
Cons
Loud fans
Summary
Good card for its price. It has room to overclock and is quite cool. Only downside is the fan noise becomes quite noticeable when its 50%+
Shouldn't be a problem with a good headset/headphones, though.
