Pros: Excellent cooling solution, overbuilt, 3 year transferrable warranty
Cons: vents into case, power inputs should be moved 90 degrees to end of card, needs more vram
The lifespan of this card is rated for: Gaming-10 yrs of continuous operation Office-40 yrs of continuous operation. It's built very well. Great components, you do get what you pay for.
IMO, this is the most thoughtfully designed and best built expression of the 560Ti GPU. I can't wait until the next line and prices on these go down. They would make an awsome folding or crunching farm. The only thing that would make them better would be additional vram. I do take off a little bit for this.
