I used them for a bit, not worth it. There where no performance gains in any game I played, In fact I had a big stuttering issue. The game's affected the worst where: Skyrim, Dirt3, BF3 and SWTOR in order from worst the best. Skyrim was like playing on stop animation mode. Very jittery and my texture's (modded and stock) looked hazy or out of focus. SWTOR had the least amount of stutter and a bit of "noise" in background image's.. kinda hard to explain but it looked weird. Dirt3 and BF3 had random stutter's aswell.
I did 3 clean install's of driver's and reset my OC to stock just to be sure I wasn't the problem. Same results each time. Rolled back driver's and perfect performance was back. From what I can tell the 12.4 driver's are hit and miss across the board. Some people notice no difference while other have issue's(like me) but then I have read a few time's that performance increesed with the 12.4 drivers so it looks like this is a YMMV situation. You should try them your self and report back with what happends:)

I have only seen it dip into high 50s for a split second during a massive fight. It's incredible. I don't think I have a reason to upgrade for a long time. Very happy camper
I thought about upgrading for 1440p but gaming on 120hz is just so much better. There is no way I could use my samsung as a desktop though, resolution too big haha
Sweeeeet! you need eyefinity now:P
