Card installed and Windows all back up and running with no problems. Loving it so far, really quiet and cool. Played a bit of FC3 and it's unbelievably smooth with every setting maxed. I could almost hear it whisper "pfft, is that all you've got?" so I stuck on Metro LL bench with all bells and whistles ringing and brought the card to it's knees with a 9.2fps min... which is still better than the 8.6fps min with the 7950 I think the 780s max was about 94 though. I ran Valley too and impressive results there. Only 1 issue that's bothering me... my monitor is connected via HDMI, and my HDTV is connected via DVI>VGA Adapater at TV. On AMD I always used to get the BIOS screen (and BIOS itself) on the monitor, but now with the 780 it defaults to the TV. No apparent way to chance it in the BIOS either. Not a big issue as I'm rarely in the BIOS, just a bit of a pain if I ever do need to go into it when the TV is in other use. I'm also missing the ability to disable/enable display 2 from the system tray, but otherwise I like NV Control Panel a lot more than crappy CCC.
