Thanks for your compliment! I guess it helped that I took extra time studying the looks of each part before I bought them ;)

It does a great job so far. No driver issues at all after upgrading the driver software back in October last year. The most recent game I've been playing is Homeworld Remastered edition. I max out every setting at 1080p without break a sweat. It's not the most demanding game out there but oh boy the gameplay graphics are stunning!

Thanks my friend. My H97 has been flawless. I don't overclock so I chose the H series. Great value. To my knowledge Xeon's are hard to overclock, and you won't be looking at those if you intend to.

Hard to say... When I'm not gaming it's very quiet I can't hear it at all, and when I play games I always have my speakers on so I can't hear it at all.

Just push using the inside air. It's a very cool case and with the fans I have I'm not worried.

Overall I'm liking it! No problems so far. But as of today you should consider the GTX 970, a little bit faster and cheaper than the 290.

It's an unfounded theory but you should upgrade to Windows 7 and see how things go. I don't like Vista at all.

I haven't noticed any. I tested in Unigine Valley and Heaven as well as 3DMark11 and the results seemed on par with others' with different processors. I've seen many people chose Xeon E3 series for gaming. It's basically a locked i7 without integrated graphics.

Not sure what kind of issue would classify as driver issues? I did have one crash but I believe it was due to the PowerColor's BIOS. I've yet received the update from them (It's a very common issue related to this card but an easy fix).

I haven't loaded up those software yet, but I'm confident they will run very smoothly.
