Cards should be fine.
Things I'd Love to See in the Dashboard
I love the dashboard but would LOVE to see more information available, specially around site performance.
- Post rates, not just view rates and user rates. Thread rates too.
- Stats per day, week, month not just by the hour.
- Selectable time periods, not just one day but week, month, year, etc.
- Stats about IP addresses or ranges, browsers if possible.
Just more info in general.
