I love this card! 10/09/2010
Small! It is only as big lengthwise as an old 8600GT. Quiet! It has a huge fan right in the middle that doesn't need to spin all that fast to provide adequate cooling. THE HDMI PORT IS FULL SIZE! You don't need an adapter!
And most importantly, FAST! It is over 1.5x as fast as the GTX-285 while being half as big and half as loud. There is an eerie smoothness to the graphics provided by the Fermi architecture that I have not seen on other cards.
I liked it so much I bought another at a local store to replace a GTX-285 in another computer.
The card has dual DVI, VGA and FULL SIZE HDMI, which I use on both of my cards. I have heard the adapters are very iffy and the signal can cut out.
This card has a nice 700MHz clock speed. Makes it nice and fast while still running cool.
What could possibly be a con? For the price and size, the speed is perfect.
I use Linux on all of my computers and both of the computers using this card get excellent framerates on Starcraft II running in Wine. This is a testament to the fantastic work done by the Wine crew and the excellent drivers provided by nVidia that are able to accomplish all of the same graphical effects in Linux as in Windows with no appreciable decrease in speed.
