Pros Excellent graphic quality
Cons Driver instability, and lack of stability
Summary The card is a powerhouse, and has great graphic quality. One of the downsides, and is a great one is that the drivers are not stable with Vista. (32 or 64 bit) I have had this card in both 32 and 64 bit instances of Vista and the driver keeps crashing whenever a game is played, even solitare or hearts which are built in games. For those that jump on power supply this is what I have:
Dell XPS 710
Quad processed Duo 2.4
750W Power Supply
I updated the BIOS, got the latest drivers, and have tried so many installs, and tips from Nvidia's, Evga and Dell's support forums. Nothing helps. New install of OS, trying different memory, reseating the card, very tiring and frustrating for a brand new system and card. I am very disappointed with the card in gaming respect, and the level of support from Nvidia on this. Many others have this same issue with this card with Vista, on all types of different systems and configurations.
I am continuing to try to get this issue resolved, but the card only seems to work correctly in XP.

Pros Unmatched Performance
Cons You will need adequate power and cooling
Summary This single card at stock speed crushed the performance of my previous overclocked SLI cards. Renders all current games like FEAR at max settings with smooth FPS. Can't wait to see the game that inspires me to get another for SLI!
If your PSU handles SLI now, you're OK with this card. You'll want to consider a quality 800W or better PSU to run two of these in SLI. I didn't give it a 10 because this card runs very hot - make sure you've got adequate cooling.

Pros Great quality, great for dual monitoring, 2 DVI (no need for VGA), doesn't heat up extremely
Cons none! There is nothing wrong!
Summary I really like how NVidia stepped up on this and I got it extremely cheap when I bought it with my computer. I would recommend this to anyone, not just gamers, but for daily computer users.
Pros great gaming card.
Cons some softwares don't work. All this power but useless for some softwares like even the latest version of maya doesn't work well.. no patches for a lot of softwares.
Summary I had to beef up my powersupply and install vista. great card giving me great performance..Crysis, Gears of war, Bioshock etc work great. my only concern is that a lot of softwares don't work yet. patches haven't been released for them. i should've held on to my old system for a couple of months more before getting this one. though eventually i would've bought this one.
Pros No tuning required to enhance the in Game display
Cons Expensive !!
Summary I played the listed games without any performance compromise, with max display options...on my system
