This is an excellent card. Overclocks well, can max out almost any game and still maintain 40+ FPS.

Pros: Wicked fast. Overclocks very well. Will max out Batman Arkham Asylum fully 1366x768, 2xAA and keep 65+ fps.

Cons: Reference, runs a little hot, fan can be loud, but at 100%, a fan on a hot summer day is louder.

This card is awesome. Sure it's going to be kind of outdated by the time the 7000 series rolls around. But this card is plenty fast enough for what I need it for. Will do Crysis DX9 mode at 60FPS on these settings: High on everything 1366x768 8xAA Same for Batman: Arkham Asylum. This card overclocks well too. I got it to 800MHz core and 1200MHz memory without even touching the voltage. Overall I'm very impressed with this card.
