Pros:

Big CUDA bad boy, very powerful
Quiet, cool, DX11 support
nVidia makes a better driver too... however...

Cons:

The OpenGL version advertised is 3.2, now while that may be true, the drivers lack many of the most common extensions and only supports shader model 2! What the hell is that?!

If you're building a hackintosh or a linux box and are looking to get WINE or Crossover Games... DON'T GET THIS CARD

Other Thoughts:

AMD Phenom II x4 965
Gigabyte 790FXTA-UD5
4GB DDR31600
nVidia GeForce GTX 470 (this card)

Windows 7 Professional x64
Linux Mint 9 Isadora x64
