Quite... But hey, a smoking fast PC is good for more than just games. A snappy, nothing-can-slow-it-down PC is a pleasure to use. Oh, but let me say that SSDs are worth every penny even at their current prices. Going back to having the OS installed on a regular 7200RPM HDD was terrible.

Oh, and about my card. I turned up the VCore just a little bit and "underclocked" it just down to 728MHz, just 14MHz lower than the default settings. And so far I've realized I haven't had a freeze with a lower clock... But I'm still skeptical, I'll be trying a bunch of games in the coming days to make sure this sucker stays stable.
