Pros

Overclocked performance comes close to the GTX280's level, but at a far lower price

1 agrees

Excellent improvements over performance with AA enabled, unlike the previous HD38xx generation where AA brings these highend cards to a crawl

1 agrees

Stock performance matches the overclocked GTX260 models, with overclocking, the ATI models can easily exceed the GTX 260

1 agrees

Low power consumption with respect to its performance level contributes to the good thermal performance

1 agrees

Not the quietest fan out there, but it keeps the efficient GPU running cool

Cons

Catalyst control center's overclocking limit prevents users from getting the most out of the card

1 agrees

Some motherboards do not support CrossFire, so multi-GPU users are advised to go for GTX 260 SLI for that purpose
