Pros: Runs cool ... not above 60C with the fans at 50% or less - clocked at 1100/1300 with AfterBurner. Registration for lifetime warranty was quick and painless. Rebate card arrived, as promised, in 5-6 weeks. The video card is quiet and well-built. Aluminum housing looks great with my Lascala LC13 case

Other Thoughts: I'll wait XFX out on that second card ;) C'mon, XFX, cut that price!READ FULL REVIEW

This should address your playback issues except with Silverlight. which is getting better but still not utilizing the UVD HW acceleration.
Cons: NoneREAD FULL REVIEW
