Cons: 6 pin connector faces the back of the card rather than the top, increasing card length in tight spots (though I admit, that's a really picky con). I didn't see a VGA dongle in the box but if you're still using a VGA only monitor you might want to look at some inexpensive LED screens while you're here.

Pros: Nice budget gaming card with a decent amount of fast memory and a 256-bit memory interface. DVI, HDMI, and Displayport connections covers all the (digital) bases. My card came clocked at 955mhz rather than 925mhz, though Club3D's website notes that the stock clock for this card is "~925mhz" so I guess it's still accurate.
Comment:
I bought this to complete a budget gaming build for my nephew (paired with a Core i3-4160). Ran several Unigine Heaven 4.0 benchmarks to get the heat up and see how loud the fans will be and was pleasantly surprised. The temperature topped off at 69C and held it there through a couple runs without any worrying fan noise or obtrusive buzz; the graphics card's fans seem more than capable of handling the card's heat without spooling up too aggressively.In terms of performance, running the Heaven 4.0 bench in 'Extreme' got me 737 marks windowed, 760 fullscreen. For comparison my gaming rig is a Core i5-2500K at 4.5 Ghz and crossfired Radeon 7950s (the most similar currently selling card to the 7950 would be the R9 280). Disabling one of my 7950s netted me 946 marks windowed, 1018 fullscreen. Running my 7950s in crossfire and fullscreen netted 1981 marks. Considering I spent less on the Core i3 and R7 265 together than I did to get my first Radeon 7950, that's some decent budget numbers without spending a lot of money.While if you can afford a more expensive gaming card you'd be rewarded with some good performance improvements, this card is a nice option for anyone who wants an inexpensive gaming card but doesn't have the funds to stretch the GPU budget to an R9 280 class card. I believe if you're looking at the 128-bit memory interface cards like the R7 250X or 260X, stretching your budget another thirty bucks or so to the 265 would be worth it.I'm giving it 4 out of 5 stars because I start in the middle and add or deduct based on my opinion, rather than starting at 5/5 and deducting for flaws. It performed as I expected and at a good price point, did it quietly, and provides a good variety of display outputs. All-in-all a solid budget gaming card.
