With how bad the 600 series are behaving, hope this fixes those issues because i really want a 670 or 680

Sweet. Running dual GTS450's in SLI, and this looks to improve my already great gaming. I wonder if this will work symbiotically with the updates that Riot is coming out with this week that is supposed to improve the overall look of Summoner's Rift, as well as their claims of increasing frame-rates of up to 100% on certain settings. I'd love to see a jump from my existing framerate (~170 FPS during low-action sequences, ~100 FPS during team fights)?

I'm still rocking a GTX 460 for the moment, but plan to pop in 2 670s by years end. 4-way sli is an awesome perk, but I can't imagine anyone but the most extreme system being able to utilize all that power. You can run multi-monitor support off a single card anymore, but I guess if you have almost 2 grand to blow on graphics alone... go for it.

It's easy. Just buy a hulking big monitor. It will soak up all those extra FPS settings. 27 inch or bigger should do it.

I've tried larger monitors and find my sweet spot to be 24-27in. Right now I'm sitting on a 24" right now and due to limited space i'm fairly close to it. Any bigger and it would be too big for the measly space i'm in right now. I can see where eyefinity large monitors would eat up that power, i'm just not in the mindset that it's really beneficial to run that kind of setup. Plus... i hate the lines from multi-monitor setups lol. I guess I'm kind of picky.

Brad, do you know if the new drivers fix the Kepler stuttering issue?

Of the top of my head, I don't think so, as the Nvidia blog post/release notes didn't mention it. Plus, in the link you point to, Nvidia said a fix will take until June.
