Pros: -Plays BF3 on Ultra, 4xMSAA, HBAO, 1920 X 1080 @ 55-60 FPS (64 Player maps, Armored Kill maps also)
-About 10 Deg C cooler than my OC GTX 460 2 GB under load (Now 60 Deg C)
-Fan is very quiet, I can't even hear it during games (1:1 Temp to Fan Speed Ratio)
-HUGE, but it still fits in my Antec 300. You will have to move your hard drive if its across from the PCI Slot
-Still has a little trouble with Crysis Warhead on full settings, specifically when there is fire.
Overall Review: Very happy with this card so far. It performs much better than my 460 by a huge amount. I don't know what fan noise other people were talking about in other reviews, as mine is silent all the way up to 100% (except the noise from air movement).
i7 2600K @3.4 GHz

EVGA GTX 670 FTW LE

Pros: *Keys have great feel to them, require a little force to push
*Volume Control is nice, a little slow though
*Great looking keyboard
Cons: * Back lighting is the worst I've ever seen. You cannot tell that its on when there is any light around, including the light from the monitor.
*Some keys only partially backlit.
Overall Review: Read mixed reviews on Newegg and was hoping to just get a lower-priced backlit gaming keyboard... so I bought this, and I regret it already. I just got it today. The backlighting was the main reason for the upgrade other than the fact that I was using a 10-yr old Dell keyboard up until now, and it is terrible.
Pros: Price, 2 GB, EVGA. Can run Battlfield BC2 on highest settings, Crysis, Portal, etc. on the full settings. Temp gets to be around 55 C for full load.
Software included for overclocking is very easy to use, but have not really had to do much overclocking.
Cons: A little big, but fits in a mid-tower just fine.
Pros: Can handle anything I throw at it, runs @ about 25 C idle, around 53 C after heavy load for an hour
Cons: Heat sink isn't the best design in the world, initially would not stay attached to motherboard almost causing overheating. Easily fixed however.
Overall Review: Very fast, but seems overpriced. The 2500k i5 might be a better option.
