Pros:

Nice GPU, you can tell by the packaging and design that EVGA puts out a quality product. There was definitely a "Wow" factor as I opened up the box. I am running all my games at 1920x1200 with setting most of the way up.
EVGA provides some very nice and useful utilities that you may actually want to install.
Metro is a good game.

The warranty ROCKS.

Cons:

Performance is great other than a single anomaly in the game War Thunder with the particle physics frame rates would suddenly drop from 70-100 fps to single digits. Not good in an online game. I cranked down the settings and it disappeared...but kind of a letdown after just upgrading my rig. In Metro Last light the same thing happened. The solution wasn't as evident as with war thunder but after some tweaking and eventually figured it out. In those two games for awhile my laptop with a GeForce 680m was performing better (but at lower resolution). Newer drivers and a relaxation of the settings has since fixed this - so I think it was a driver issue.

I tend to agree that this card is probably overpriced for the performance I've seen so far.

Metro is nice...but look what AMD/Radeon is packaging with their cards... :/

Other Thoughts:

I really struggled over which card to buy with my new rig. I'm not disappointed with this card and would still recommend it to someone, but I might make a different decision if I had it to do over, especially with the new cards in the 700 series out now.
