Can't wait to test this baby out with Adobe Premiere CS6 on some heavy renders.
I was going to get the EVGA FTW+ but this one was $156 cheaper and had the same clock speeds and 4GB of GDDR5.

Slightly off-topic XD how comes you have warm exhaust air blowing into your case ?
Would you not get better thermal performance with the rear fan blowing cool air in and your radiator functioning as an exhaust?* ( any other fans should be intake also)
*Heat rises after all so it makes sense to push air out the top of the case rather than having your fans fight against natural convection.
