Pros

Stock fan runs fairly quietly when in light to moderate load.

1 agrees

Can still handle any game on DX10, full settings, with playable frame rates.

Better overclocking performance than the competing ATI HD 4870X2.

1 agrees

Surprisingly low idle power consumption for a dual-GPU card.

Runs very hot with stock cooling--may require additional cooling in some cases.
