Summary: I've had the card since December of 2012. So far, it's ran MOSTLY without a hitch. I have had some instances where my games will crash and I'll need to restart, but I've always thought that was the card. I was wrong. Last night "The Evil Within" crashed while playing after EXTREME pixelation.
Summary: I've considered upgrading to a good single card, but I haven't found any that outperforms the SLI (within a reasonable price bracket) enough to warrant a purchase.
Pros: I got this card back in 2012 and have used it every day since. A few months later, I decided to purchase another card to SLI. I have never had an issue with this card. It has crushed almost every game I've thrown at it. A+!
Summary: Great card bought it locally used from a guy upgrading for $160.00 a few months ago. The card was in perfect condition. I had an MSI HD 7870 Ghz I bought here that I very much liked but this one performed better overall in most games around 5-15 FPS faster game depending.
Pros: - Not overly large - Quiet - Nice FPS in all games
Pros: Very fast gpu for the price and age! I am getting 55-80 fps in Battlefield 3. Granted I have an AMD 8350 vishera, but this card is very fast and keeps at a low temp. I have no extra cooling or fans, and the card never drops below 40 fps in any game I play. Great card!
Cons: The HDMI port was oddly misshapen. I had to bend it to fit. Nothing serious though!
Easily the worst computer related experience of my life

Summary: I'm not going to go too far into this, but the first of these cards that I bought did not work. It took me a very long time to figure out which component wasn't working (the nature of a new build), but after a few weeks of debugging I got lucky.
Pros: A solid card apparently, if it worked.... Either time
Summary: This card is an all around great buy. I purchased mine locally for around $165 and man is it a step up! I'm coming from an XFX 7850 1 GB and this card does a lot better. Granted, this card and my old one don't really compete due to the price differences.
Pros: Great heatsink/fan combo Runs under 62* in all sorts of tests Great performance The blue goes with my system :3 Fans are quiet under realistic heavy use scenarios
