So I am cruising around on Amazon when I see this ridiculously badass card, can anyone talk me out of buying it or is it a done deal? Going to be replacing a Radeon 7970 I have in there now, the driver issues are wearing me down.

Pros?
Cons?

Here is my PSU and Case for cooling/power consumption. Thinking that both will be good but any input is appreciated.

I would say if money is not an issue go and get the 690 it is much fastest much bettr in all aspect of features, also there is definitely NO driver issue.

If you have that much money to blow then go for it, though if I were you, I would just get a 680 and save that $550 for something better.

Okay, apparently they are the same cards, but the Signature edition comes with some exclusive extras in the box:
"a limited edition EVGA gaming poster, themed t-shirt, and mousepad." ..... for $50 more!

There are no cons besides the price. If you want the performance of 2 680s in one slot, and have a badass looking card, this is worth it.

Yup signature edition seems worthless glad someone pointed that out, and yes I was kind of hoping someone would talk me out of buying it. I realize the error in my thinking now :D  .
