Pros: I bought my first Nvidia cards. I have no regrets. It's fast and stable. I've been a loyal ATI fan since Radeon 64 mb DDR. I didn't have a choice. I bought an Acer 27" 120 hz 3d vision ready monitor. I wanted to try 3d gaming. It's cool and it's just gonna get better. Gaming w/ this monitor and GTX 570 SLI is smooth and fast. My frame rates stays high. I have Core i 7 950 Asus x 58 P6T deluxe v. 2.
Cons: It's hot 92 C on load w/ case closed. I keep my case open. I have Coolermaster 840 ATC full tower. I have a 120 mm fan blowing on them. It stays 72 c on load. Maybe I have SLI. I will keep the 5 coz I'm that impressed w/ stability and speed.
Other Thoughts: I bought mine from Microcnter. I wanted it bad that day. MY 2 CENTS. Actually if you will upgrade ur monitor to 120hz you wiil see a big difference. Smoother animation. I think the current 60 hz monitors is the bottleneck.READ FULL REVIEW

Pros: To attain maximum working order use Driver Cleaner to remove old drivers. It's free. I just bought 4870 x2 before 5870 came out with the same price. I don't have regrets. But 5870 is newer tech so buy this one. I love my 4870 x2! Newegg too. Just my 2 cents.
Other Thoughts: I have owned ATI video cards since my onboard 2 megs in 1997.READ FULL REVIEW
