NOTE: My wife insisted I order the card now. This is a 180 degree turn for expenditures on computers for her. Before it was, "Do you really need that? Our computer works fine!" but after watching some youtube videos on mining and looking at the payouts ... last payday she said, "Order something now!"
Kudos for having the wife onboard. But most peoples experiences with mining are that its hard to make any money on your own and you need to join a decent sized pool in order to have a constant stream of income in small amounts (a few $$ a day vs a few thousand once or twice in a lifetime) vs. you finding one coin yourself after 4-8 years of mining.
I believe when reviewers get to keep a product they need to disclose it in the review. You see that on a lot of sites.
