great card 08/17/2013
Card is very stable, quiet, and stays very cool (59C full load).
Was a slight (15%) improvement over my old 5870 card.
Is able to handle 5040x1050 with 3 monitors but I had to turn down settings to medium from a stable ultra mode to get decent frame rates (pretty much expected unless you crossfire 2 of these). Handles 3360x1050 (iz3d monitor 3d mode) perfectly on all games >40fps
None so far. Drivers are generally stable (no more grey screens of death).
I like the cooler on this card but I do wish it was designed to push all the heat out of my case. It's mostly open on both ends (since it's a double fan model) so most of the heat pulled from the memory and voltage chips are pumped back into the case. Again, this is not a con, just the nature of a double fan cooler, which does work better than a single "exhaust" type cooler. Just understand it will heat up any components behind or above the video card and the case itself (probably less than a few degrees).
