Guys, I think its good that there are people who have a smooth GX2 experience. No need to be quite harsh about it.

My best experience with GX2 was holding it in my hands after getting it out of the package. That evil looking black beasty brick surely may result in a headrush/goosebumps. I think it really looks badass (well, unless you leave the stock cooling as it is).

I also quite enjoyed packing it really nicely and sending back to EVGA after 2 months of use.

That is to say though - only after getting a new card I realized how flawed GX2 really is (at least not suitable to my needs: 1680x1050 high IQ + AA; no go in COH and DIRT with such settings at all).
