Pros: Feels great to type on, satisfying tactile response and click. If you know you'll like browns then you should enjoy this keyboard.
Have had it for the better part of 2 months now without any issues.
Cons: These aren't really cons so much as things to take into consideration:
Can be a little noisy to others, if you are going to be around people who are sensitive to hearing you type then I wouldn't recommend it.
Not fully back-lit but that's not really that big of an issue for me, if you want something that has full back-lighting for uber gamer status you might want to look at Coolermaster's other options or another keyboard manufacture.
Pros: Good card, runs well with no issues. With my setup and case, it doesn't break 65 C temps in any game that I have tested. With furmark, I recorded it hitting 75 C after a 15 minute period, but it seemed to have leveled out. All of this was with the fan spinning at only about 45-50% at peak strain. It's really quiet too. My case (HAF 912) isnt the quietest, and I have 6 case fans in it. Even with this setup, I cant hear the windforce cooler over the sound of my case and cpu fans even when at max load.
Honestly I love this card, and I love the gigabyte cooler design. it is a bit large so make sure your case can support it.
Cons: None so far.
Other Thoughts: I grabbed the 4gb model despite all the information pointing towards the fact that the 4gb is unnecessary for today's games at 1920x1080. I've been monitoring my usage pretty closely with gpu-z and I have to say that it is true that I havent gone over 2gb. Closest I have come is hitman: absolution, which ran 2100mb during the benchmark with 8x msaa. I've backed it to 2x msaa because I prefer 60fps gameplay (it does dip to 52ish in some scenes at this setting).
However, I do play games with some mods such as fall out: NV, skyrim. Those definitely eat up the vram usage. And even games like bioshock infinite have peak useage of ~1900 mb during gameplay. So do I think the 4gb is worth it? Yes, for the security that I have plenty of head room for modding, its worth it. Since the new game consoles are out that will likely determine how games are designed for the next few years, and since they are equipped with more ram designed to be used for graphical interfacing (at least in the case of the ps4), I also think its worth the consideration. Devs may or may not design around, but I have it if they do. And the 2gb is close to being max used now in some titles as it is. if the $50 isnt worth it, you'll be fine with the 2gb model but thats up to you to decide.
