Kepler GPU Architecture NVIDIA's Kepler GPU architecture has been designed from the ground up not just for maximum performance, but optimal performance per watt. The new SMX streaming multiprocessor is twice as efficient as the prior generation and the new geometry engine draws triangles twice as fast. The result is world class performance and the highest image quality in an elegant and power efficient graphics card.
NVIDIA Adaptive Vertical Sync Nothing is more distracting than framerate stuttering and screen tearing. The first tends to occur when framerates are low, the second when framerates are high. Adaptive V-Sync is a smarter way to render frames. At high framerates, V-sync is enabled to eliminate tearing, at low frame rates, it's disabled to minimize stuttering. It gets rid of distractions so you can get on with gaming.
NVIDIA CUDA Unlocks the power of GPU’s processor cores to accelerate the most demanding system tasks

This review is from: ASUS GT640-2GD3 GeForce GT 640 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card
Pros: I wanted to go from two to three monitors. Cards that will run three monitors under Linux are scarce and expensive. I found a couple of people who mentioned this 640 worked for them, so I bought this one.
I hooked up two DVI monitors and a VGA monitor; I don't have anything to plug the HDMI port to. openSUSE 13.2 came up and spread KDE across six feet of monitor. Easy-sleazy; no configuration file editing, no video utility program, it just worked.
I have no idea how its gaming performance is, but it plays HD movies just fine on one monitor while I have a sheaf of windows open on the others.
I'm using the default NVidia driver provided with my Linux distribution, not the "real" one from NVidia. Though I've had other, older cards that wouldn't drive two monitors without linking the NVidia binary in, the new Linux driver seems to handle multiple monitors flawlessly.
I am very happy with the card.
Cons: The card is quite large, takes one slot, and since it takes two backplane openings, it may block access to another. If you have any other expansion cards you need to look at where your PCIx3 slot is in relation to the others; motherboard manufacturers seem to be economizing on slots nowadays.
This isn't unusual for medium to high end cards nowadays, but not all motherboard makers seem to have taken the hint yet.
Other Thoughts: The jump from two monitors to three isn't as awesome as going from one to two, but it's definitely work it, as cheap as monitors are nowadays.
