Pros: I have 2 SSDs, 1 for my OS and programs, and 1 for games; and it seems the perfect setup to me. Along with windows 8.1, my load times are almost nothing. Windows boots in a few seconds, and opening a program is near instantaneous. Running games is now a beautiful experience as there are low load times. I modded the junk out of skyrim with around 100+ mods, and the longest load time I get is 5-10 seconds. If you don't have an SSD do yourself a favor and gift yourself one now!

Pros: This card hits the sweet spot. Unless you are doing benchmarking tests in all your games for Newegg or another company, then this is the card I'd go with. It's built to handle anything you through at it, and works great even if you have more than 1 monitor. It came with 3 game codes as well: Assassins Creed, Splinter Cell, and Batman. Can't beat that! Read my 'other thoughts' for further info.
Cons: None yet, but I'll make sure I edit this post if something comes up.
Other Thoughts: I've read a lot of negative feedback about the card being too big, or too long for the customers case, and then they take of an egg for that. But isn't that the customers fault for not being smart enough to research the measurements needed, and purchasing a product that fits their needs. Maybe it's just me. Also, people are complaining that they didn't get their games, or the codes don't work. Well, my codes didn't work either, so I emailed Nvidia at their website (since it's nvidia's promotion, not Newegg!!!), and they responded and fixed the issue within 24 hours. I had my games downloaded and playing the next day. Another complaint was that the 770 is just a rebranded, although more powerful and cheaper, 680. Seriously, how is that a complaint? Oh well, you can't please everyone. Trust me, if you are reading this, you'll be very happy with this card.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I just can't see any reason going for an i7 just yet when the i5 4670 has great functionality without even having to OC. It's fast, runs cool (with aftermarket cooler), has the option to overclock if necessary. The bottom line is it won't bottleneck.
