Pros: The card worked great, but only for two days.
Cons: Without warning Tribes: Ascend crashed and my screen flickered on and off until I killed the process. A message box alerted me to the problem:
"Display driver stopped responding and has recovered. Display driver NVIDIA Windows Kernel Mode Driver, Version 301.42 stopped responding and has successfully recovered. "
Unfortunately the problem is now persistent and I can no longer play Tribes: Ascend, let alone more graphically intensive games. That is, I literally cannot play any game for any length of time - The Secret World, Mass Effect 3, GTA IV - nothing gets past the initial splash screen. I can not browse the internet without the same problem occurring every half hour. Customer Support suggested I try the newest beta drivers -- nothing. Rollback drivers -- nothing. This seems to be a problem of some frequency online. A sour taste has been left in my mouth after building what was to be my first gaming rig. I do not look forward to what may be an endless, sisyphean cycle of RMAs
