Pros: Replaced a GIGABYTE GV-N670OC-2GD with this beast. This card is slightly smaller, uses about 70W more under load, and has raised my framerates 35-50% (depending on the game I am playing).
Good looking card.
Stays under 70C under load in a case with only air cooling.
No problems with my Asus mobo using over 1 year old bios, no flashing needed.
Cons: Couldn't get through Newegg, so ordered direct from EVGA. Wound up being $10 cheaper through EVGA.
No bundled games included.
This price seems quite high compared to historic high-end card prices, I was expecting $500-550. Perhaps will come down when ATI updates their line of cards.

Pros: Boot up time decreased dramatically in Dell Inspiron 15r. No issues with instability.
Cons: none so far, but would prefer stability of now hard-to-find SLC drives for long term usage
Other Thoughts: Doing really well so far in win7/ubuntu dual-boot laptop.READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: Seiko Black Dial Stainless Steel Chronograph Mens Watch SSB007
Pros: Looks more expensive than it is. Keeps good time. Fits well on my small wrist (after removing 2 links).
Cons: Removal of links not straightforward (good video on YouTube). The second hand is small and at roughly 6AM, the large second hand-appearing thing is actually a stopwatch (a little odd).
