Pros: Everything, except one (See cons)
Cons: Early cards had some VRM probs; mine was one of them
Oh, another thing: As is the case w/ most new, high end GPU's now, it is quite large. Make sure you have enough room in your case to fit. When my second card arrives I'm going to have to do some finagling w/ my case and HDD's to get both cards in there.
I think the price is fair for what you get. I have the SC version of this card. IMHO, if you are trying to decided between a 580 and this, buy THIS. The extra $$ for a 580 is a waste. Look at performance charts; the difference between these two cards at stock speeds is negligible. In real life game play you probably wouldn't even notice the difference.
