Default A few questions for recent GTX 280 owners

I was going to wait out the R700 but my trigger finger is getting itchy and I might get a GTX 280 instead. I have a few questions/concerns though:

1: Is the overheating problem that seems to be effecting like 50% of them fixed yet on recent cards?

2: Is the driver issue with not being able to display above 60hz on Vista fixed now?

3: Does anyone have a Corsair HX620 power supply and is running a GTX 280? If so, how does it work? From what I can tell, it can be done, but it requires a bunch of half-assery and converter connectors and I'm not sure I want to go that route.

4: Drivers in general, any crashes/instability?

5: Any specific board makers having lots of problems? I have a BFG 8800GTX OC right now, was thinking about going with them again as they seem respectable, thinking about getting the BFG GTX 280 OCX version, anyone have this?
