Pros:
well, here it is, the most powerful videocard on Dx yet! it's considered a mainstream enthusiast videocard not a hardcore ultra expensive card like the GTX680 or Titan so this model will be far more popular type for your average pc user, it's fast enough to play all new games on a 24 inch screen(1920X1200) with 2AA/4AA and 8AA/16AA depending on cpu/ram config, also has good cooling, similar to MSI Windforce, i.e heatpipes with 2 X large silent fans side by side, card has a turbo boost button on back panel, and silver plating technology, also you get the full retail box + manual + cd, accessories are 2 X molex to PCIE power adapters
Cons:
most obvious is manual is in Chinese but its mostly software driver installation, and price could be a little lower
Other:
as for speed, this has a turbo button on back panel for an instant 10-15% speed boost depending on game, but take note, will ONLY boost speed on gpu limited games, take for example Crysis3, this game is very cpu intensive as it will use all available cores , if your performance is cpu bottlenecked pressing the turbo button will do nothing for speed, as usual getting the best performance from your pc will hinge on carefully selecting balanced parts, it's a waste having a powerful gpu paired with a slow cpu, or fast ram with a slow cpu etc box states silver plating technology, not sure why, silver is a good conductor with anti corrosion properties maybe it means your card won't rust or tarnish with age??
Bottomline:
good card for the performance minded user
